This Body

100 words about waking up in another body

You wake up in someone else’s body. This body is thin and hungry. You think of tea and porridge and this body’s mouth waters and its stomach growls.

This body lives in a shoebox of a room. There’s a partly cracked mirror in the corner. You stand so you can see this body, but for now, you look at the feet. They are small and slender. This body is younger than yours.

Thinner, younger – you don’t know how you got this body, but you may never want to give it back.

The questions is, how did you get this body?
