I don't want you, said Octave, to think me childishly obstinate, and to leave you at liberty, through my persistent silence, to wash your hands of whatever fatal result may ensue from my peculiar disease; so, since you wish it, I will tell you my story. You have already guessed the clue to it, and I won't dispute with you about details. Don't expect anything very singular or romantic. It is a very simple history, very common and trite 3 but, as Henri Heine says, he to whom it happens always finds it new, and breaks his heart over it.
In truth, doctor, I am almost ashamed to mention such a commonplace matter to a man who has lived in the most fabulous and strange countries.

Alas, she rejects his advances, and remains faithful to her husband, Count Olaf. Octave slowly drifts towards apathy, and his soul gradually deserts him. Octave's friends and relatives, who fail to understand the source of his illness, resort to a peculiar and rather mysterious physician who spent several years in India leading an ascetic life. The physician, Balthazar Cherbonneau, offers to swap Octave's mind with Olaf's using magic he learned in India. Cherbonneau tricks Olaf while he is visiting and successfully switches Octave's and the count's minds. Prascovie is shaken by what appears to be a change in her husband's personality, sensing Octave's desire for her in her husband's face. Meanwhile, Olaf is confused by the sudden change of bodies.
