Making Up for Lost Time
In the moments after the Great Shift, Kevin wondered if he was going to forever traumatized by his new body. He had been in his dorm room studying for an exam when he suddenly found himself shopping at a grocery store instead. Looking at the hands pushing a cart, he wasn’t just horrified because of the manicured nails or small, feminine size; it was also because they were clearly older than his own. He rushed to a bathroom to have his fears confirmed. He was a woman now who appeared to be around 40. In an instant, he had around 20 years of his life. It was scary; he began to cry.
A few months later, any fear of potential trauma had disappeared from Kevin’s mind. He had finished up his degree and begun a career. He had gotten used to being a woman, and he had to admit to himself that he was fairly attractive. But he knew that due to his body’s age, he’d have to work to keep it that way; it’d be pretty easy to let himself go. But working out every day just made him feel better about himself and his situation. Sure, he was older now, but did he really lose 20 years of life? He was sure the way he was motivated to take care of this new body could add that much time to his life plus some.
