Ok, This is Liam with blonde curly hair,

"See", said the doctor, "His adams apple disappears when I hold my hands like this, I think I can remove it without surgery"

(Sorry I've gone too far ahead, let me go back and tell you the whole story)

Liam and Chloe had known each other for years, they went to school and university together, both studied Media, two years ago they both managed to get jobs at the local radio station, and today was their first day as the newest double act on 1459 KRSB, they couldnt believe their luck, its was like a dream come true for both of them, they got along so well it wasnt long before the big radio stations came calling.

Five years later, two failed marriages, and one re-hab visit for Chloe's drunk driving charge, they were back together, but it wasn't long before Chloes drinking took center stage again, she would show up late for their show, thats if she bothered to show up at all. It wasn't long before the radio station began to look around for another couple who could take over their spot, Liam was desparate, one day when Chole didnt make it due to a game of shots at a local bar, Liam started impersonating Chloe on air, it started out as a joke but it soon caught on with the radio shows listeners, it was funny and it was new, no one was doing this kind of stuff, no one except the people at the station knew Liam was doing both voices, and they were very happy with that, two voices for the price of one.

It wasnt long before the station had a meeting and it was decided that Liam would do both voices, but they needed him to sign a new contract, as the ratings went up Liam decided it was time to ask for more money, he was doing the work of two people so why not two paychecks? The radio station knew they couldnt afford to lose a talent like Liam, but they werent about to pay him double what they paid him before, it wasnt their fault his partner on the show was a screaming drunk.

They had a meeting, it went well apart from the fact that Liams lawyer and best friend, Janet, wasn't able to make the meeting, she attended by phone only, they agreed on a 65% increase to Liam's paycheck and Liam would stand in for Chole on the show and at any functions to be decided by the radio station, after that things went from good to great, the ratings shot up and Liam finally felt he was the true star of the show, that was until the radio station got a call from one of the big T.V. talk shows, they wanted Liam and Chloe to appear on their show.

Of course the station didnt want to disappoint the T.V. show, they knew how that would increase the revenue for commercials and other things, they pitched it to Liam and Janet his lawyer, Liam decided he didnt want to do the T.V. show, things got heated with Liam threatening to quit, the station argued with Janet and Liam, the reason he didnt want to do it was, he could still walk down the street without anyone knowing he was half of the duo, and because Liam and Chloe were only on the radio, no one knew what they looked like.

Liam was adamant, he wouldnt do it and he said there was nothing the station could do, he stormed out of the office, leaving Janet to try and patch things up, the radio station people were fuming, it was hours before Janet could calm things down again, the two sides talked for another 3 hours before one bright spark of a manager said,

''Why dont we just have "Chloe" do the show?"

"What?" said Janet,

"Liam does the voice on the show, he can do the voice on T.V. and Liam will still have his anonymity" said the manager

"Dont be ridicuous" said Janet, "he's a man"

The mangaer continued,"Liam is right in one respect, we cant make him go on the T.V. show but he signed a contract that states he will stand in for Chloe on the air AND at any functions to be decided by the station, and he will still be able to walk down the street as Liam and he wont be recognized win, win all round"

"Let me see that" said Janet, it was, in fact the first time she had seen the contract because Liam had only been interested in the pay rise and didnt bother to tell Janet about the not so small, small print, in actual fact he had agreed to stand in for Chloe, never thinking he would have to dress as her, he was only thinking of the voice of Chloe on the radio show, when Janet told Liam of the new developments he said she was crazy to think he would dress like Chloe and go on national television,

Janet told him, "Thats not what it says", Liam gave a sigh of relief, Janet continued, "I'm sorry Liam, but no one actually knows what Chloe looks like, you two have only been on the radio, the person in your mind when you talk like Chloe is like a blank canvass to the radio station, they can dress you however they choose, and if you refuse to do ANY function of their choosing they will sue you for every penny you have.

Liam was called back into the office, Janet asked for another meeting with the station execs, Liam was now eager to do whatever the execs wanted him to do, "Please don't make me wear a dress" he pleaded,

"Im afraid we've gone past that stage now Liam, we have hired make up artists and hair stylists and even a retired doctor who will take care of any, shall we say body work that needs doing, nothing permanent, you understand, but you will be able to walk down the street and no one will recognize you as Liam, that's what you wanted right?"

The next meeting was to decide exactly what they wanted "Chloe" to look like, after four hours in make up and hair they had some pictures taken.

"Can we see him split screen as Liam and Chloe" the station manager asked the technician, "Of course sir how's this?"

"Yes that's good but can we see some more options?"

 Liam started to cry.
