Earning It (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
When Emily was offered the job she had interviewed for, she was ecstatic. However, since her husband was still unemployed, she devised a clever strategy. Instead of quitting her old job, she simply changed him into her double again. She’d go to her new job and leave him to the old one. She knew he probably wouldn’t be able to keep it for long, but even a few extra weeks of a second paycheck would help the couple out. Of course, considering the schedule of work and the medallion’s time limit, her husband would stay as a copy of her as long as he kept the job. It was a little weird for her going to bed each night lying next to a duplicate of her own body. She did her best to smile as she wished him goodnight, still with a certain nagging feeling. Her husband could sense something wrong, but he couldn’t quite figure it out what she was worried about.
