Chris knew that she was not the same person everyone thought she was just a few years earlier. She had changed. She had changed to be the person she always knew she was. She wanted to believe that she had evolved. And while most people she knew would acknowledge that Chris had changed, not everyone would concur that she had evolved. In fact, some who knew her thought that the change Chris had gone through was a serious mistake.
Chris was born a caterpillar, and just as a caterpillar goes through a process of metamorphosis, so to did Chris. But in Chris’ case, the metamorphosis she went through was not from caterpillar to a moth or a butterfly. It was more, she felt, like a moth being transformed from a leaf.
She became a completely different person. She went through a major change…of form, structure, and substance. A change not only in appearance, but in character and circumstances, as well. Chris’ metamorphosis was from a human man to a human woman.
From Christopher to Christine.
