What If It Wasn't an Accident?

An accident with the Medallion of Zulu had caused Josh to switch bodies with his sister, April, on the morning of her wedding. Seeing as how they wouldn’t be able to switch back for 12 hours, April pleaded with her brother to pretend to be her for the ceremony. Josh reluctantly agreed as he went through all the hair and makeup routines and found himself dressed in a beautiful white gown.

With minutes left to go before the ceremony, a bridesmaid casually asked him, “So you didn’t get cold feet after all?”

Suddenly Josh froze. What if the accident with the medallion hadn’t been an accident? What if this was his sister’s way of getting out of this whole thing? What if he was going to be stuck like this? Stuck in her body in her life with her husband? It wasn’t too late to run, was it? He could run off. Sure, he’d still be stuck in his sister’s body, but at least he wouldn’t be tied down to a husband!

Then the music started...

The phone rang several times before someone finally answered, and Harvey smiled with a sense of relief.

“Sarah!” He said quickly, “It’s me! It’s Dr. Wexler.” He paused, “What do you mean who else would it be? I need you to do something for me fast. I need you to...I need you to...I honestly can’t think of what I need from you right now. I’m sorry to trouble you, Sarah. You should head home. You work late enough as it is! I’ll see you on Monday!”

Dr. Wexler didn’t make the call in time. A new reality had been written. His life would be mostly the same, except he was now Dr. Harriet Wexler instead. There were plenty of other shakeups in the world as well, but he wouldn’t be aware of any of them...nor would anyone else.

After speaking with Marvin, Tiffany knew she needed to ruin Xing and get back to her own body as soon as possible. And for that she needed Steve. Tiffany noticed a change about Steve before even getting close. He was wearing tight clothes and a huge smile on his face. This worried her.

“So I got the geek out of your body,” She told him.

“Babe?” He asked looking into his own eyes.

“Yeah, I switched with him. He’s in MY body now, so you really owe me.”

“Actually, I’ve been rethinking this plan.”

Tiffany’s face turned even more sour.

Steve continued, “I went out with Xing’s friends last night. They’re really fun. I can’t remember the last time I had such a good time. I know it’s weird, but I’m actually liking this! I want to stay Xing Liu not just for a few days but forever! And I’m not going to ruin my future for you!”

Tiffany’s heart sank. She knew she had to undo this. Xing was tough competition, but an athlete like Steve in her body would be unbeatable. This was all backfiring!

After calling in sick, Neil mostly just sat in bed for most of the day, not feeling like doing much of anything. When he finally got up at about 3, he looked down at his sheet nervously. There was a giant blood stain. He felt a twinge of worry; what was happening to him? Was he injured? Dying? Then it dawned on him. His life had been going so well since the Shift, he had forgotten the obvious -- he was a woman now. What was happening was completely natural, and would now happen to him each and every month. He wasn’t sure if he was ready for this!

Harvey checked his watch. It had been twelve minutes already and he was only halfway there. There was no way he’d make it in time, but there had to be people still there! Who was still there? He thought about it for a minute, and it dawned on him. Sarah usually stayed late; he’d call her and instruct her through the process of using the machine to reverse all of this! He started to dig through his purse to find his cellphone. He couldn’t believe how much was in such a small bag! Of course, if he couldn’t find that phone, he’d knew he’d be adjusting to finding things in a purse shortly. He was hoping that didn’t happen. And with very little time left, he found it. He quickly dialed Sarah and waited as it rang...
