I had this on my mail for a few days and hadn't noticed, because I haven't been checking it lately.
Sorry. Here it is, pictures and all.
I haven’t written for a while because I wanted to have something significant to report, and when it finally happened, it kept me so busy and tired, I wasn’t actually able to write anymore!
In short, after weeks of looking, I finally have a job!
It’s nothing awesome, and I wish it could have happened like in the stories in this site, where the girls are transformed into doctors or important people. I didn’t get a degree when my age shifted, nor did I gain any professional knowledge than I’m aware of. I like it in the stories when the character instinctively knows how to do the job, but sadly that’s not the case for me. As I’ve discussed before, my mind definitely changed too, but not very radically. I feel more mature in the way I think and act, and some of my former thoughts feel childish to me. But I can’t drive, or do complex adult stuff because I simply don’t have that knowledge.
So not every option was on the cards for me, but my brother found me a nice one through a friend, and I’m now working as an assistant in a small department store. They put me into the camping section, and we sell a few things from tents to small canoes and backpacks.
I had to memorize a bunch of things and they don’t pay me much, but at least I’m doing something. I get very nervous talking with so many real adults each day, but I’ve become more comfortable and I think I’m doing a good job. My supervisor even told me so yesterday and I asked if I can also cover the rest of the sports clothing and gear section. I’d love that, because I’ve always enjoyed sporty stuff, and they told me they would consider it!
So that’s all for now. Not as glamourous as I imagined my adulthood, but it’s all I can do for now.
That's a very vivid description of a transformation!
Congratulations on that piece. The way you wrote it almost made me feel the changes myself. It probably was quite scary but exciting too.
Thanks, I tried to convey the true feelings I had as I transformed, though as I said, you cannot really understand it unless it happens to you.
And yes, it was scary, probably the most scary thing that has ever happened to me. But looking back at it, it didn’t feel half as bad.
It is a good thing everyone's memory also changed during the transformation, or else they might not believe you are the same person, unless you can convince them you are still the same inside but only look older.
I do not know if that is possible. Parents might not believe a daughter could grow up like that, no matter what she said or how much proof there was.
Yes, you don’t know how many times I’ve thought about that. I’m really grateful my family can’t see what’s changed about me, or I would have need to explain a lot of things. I read some stories here where the characters are afraid their transformations would go public and the scientist have to study them and stuff. I’m SO lucky that’s not a problem for me.
I don’t know if you’re right about my parents not believing me if that had happened, though. I think they would eventually understand. I’m obviously still me, and I even look a lot like I did. Some parts of my face, at any rate, even if it’s obviously older. I like to think my mother and brother would still be able to recognize who I was even if their memories hadn’t been altered. But I don’t know.
Hi, I think that your story is very intereating and you are very cute. Do you think that one day you could be back at your original age?
Thank you :)
I don’t know if I’ll ever go back and I’m not sure if I want to any more. On one hand, I’ve started to become used to being like this, and having this body and life. I actually kind of enjoy it.
On the other hand, I feel like I lost a n important part of my life, and I missed so many things. Like I was saying before, I don’t have an actual profession, and I sure wanted to have one when grew up :( That kind of thing is mostly what makes me sad. So I don’0t know if I would chose to return if I had the option. Not that I can see any way.
