I spent decades locked up, cooped inside my own home, denying myself of food, sleep, and general health as I worked on this machine. A machine that could transform someone into anyone else. At the ripe age of eighty-seven, I finished the machine and nearly died as it reshaped my form into that of a woman who has haunted my dreams for the majority of my life. I stretched on the doorway as I took my first breath of fresh air in years. I have been reborn as a dazzling young woman, and was ready to live my life for the first time in half a century.
