"A hero is a person who sacrifices his today to make a better tomorrow."
     My name is Conrad, a fifteen-year-old boy gifted with superpowers whose ultimate goal is to make my life miserable. 
     And as a teenage boy stashed in the year 2052, I am forced to reckon with the fact that I am the 'mother duck' who wished for these powers, which led to my distress.
     The distress is physical, taking the form of a man.

Now, my regular life is only a memory.
[Based on the bedtime story, The Ugly Duckling]
