Jim woke up to discover that room was much
larger. Then, Jim realized that the room was not any larger, but
he was smaller. Around this time, a filipina nurse entered the
room. "I see that the medication has taken effect."
"What has happened to me?" To his surprise, his voice was just like that of a little boy's.
"You were very close to death. We were afraid that you would not survive surgery. The only thing that we could do was give you an experimental age regression drug. Besides regressing you in age, it has also allowed your body to fully heal itself. Unfortunately, we don't know how young you will get exactly."
"How young am I now?", he manages to squeek.
"If I had to guess, I would say that you are around 12 years old now. Possibly, you will get to be a baby again."
Upon hearing that, Jim felt overwhelmed with a sense of frustration and started to cry. The nurse quickly came over and hugged him tightly. "There, there, it is not so bad. Don't worry. Everything will be alright.", she cooed.
Jim buried his head in her chest for a while. Eventually, he calmed down. Then, he looked up into her sparkling, dark brown eyes. "You are very nice. Will I see you often?"
"Of course, you will, sweetie. I am here to take care of you until your age stabilizes. By the way, I am Jenelyn."
"I am glad to hear that. How long do you think it will take for my age to stabilize?"
"It should take no more than a week. Anyways, if it makes you feel any better, there is only a 50 percent chance that you become a baby again."
"Who will take care of me? I don't have any family left.", Jim wondered out loud.
"That is up to you. Your insurance will provide you with some acceptable caretakers that you can choose from."
"I was going to be 24 in 3 days. Now, I have to grow up all over again.", he groaned.
"Oh, it will be your birthday soon! I will have to make you some cake!", Jenelyn exclaimed excitedly.
"I guess that will be nice.", Jim said trying to cheer himself up.
She kissed him on the forehead and said, "Of course, it will be."
