Each day we wake up, get ready, think about what that day may hold. Not A. Every day A wakes up in a different body. This has happened every day of his/her existence. Another day, another body, another family, another set of problems.
It has taken A time to adjust to this lifestyle. At first, he thought everyone experienced the same thing. As time went by, A realized he/she was merely a visitor in someone else’s body. To eliminate complications A developed rules to live by. Mainly – don’t get involved. Just like the saying goes, A attempts to “do no harm” while inhabiting countless bodies.
That was never a problem until A woke up in the body of Justin. A meets Justin’s girlfriend Rhiannon and his existence completely changes. A does everything in his power to keep Rhiannon in his life, despite the fact that it’s not always A’s life being involved.
Despite what I will call being corporeally challenged, A and Rhiannon manage to attempt a relationship. Can Rhiannon get past the fact that A is in a different body every day? Girl, boy, fat, thin, etc. Can A find a way to stay in one body and stay will his one true love?
