There was a big press conference in fifteen minutes, and as head of the company’s PR Evan was due to explain what had just happened. He clutched his phone tightly in his hand; he was nervous. The company he worked for had noble goals. Research had been working on a way to revolutionize medical transplants. In fact, if it ended up working out, nothing would actually be transplanted at all. A scanning beam could be used to analyze a healthy donor while a second beam infused with stem cells could make a copy of the healthy body part into a body in need of a transplant. The possibilities were endless, from heart disease to amputees to sex changes. But a mistake took place during testing, resulting in random exchanging and copying of donor parts and sometimes even entire bodies! The effects extended for several miles. Evan, for instance, now had a full copy of Ming Lee’s body, a woman who worked as an executive assistant. It was bad enough he was going to have to explain what just happened to the press, but it was going to be more difficult doing it from an unfamiliar body. He just kept telling himself that no matter what body he had, he was a professional and good at his job. He could do this!
