Race car drivers


Cassandra was her high school’s resident outsider. A little bit goth and a little bit emo. She mostly kept to herself, and never expected four of the boys from her backwater town to ever talk to her. The first, named, Henry, spoke with a strong southern slur, “We hear ya know witchcraft.”

“I studied it a little,” she responded quietly.

“Well, none of us are lookin’ f’ward to leavin’ school next year, havin’ to go to work or nothin’. But maybe if we could do some sorta fun thing; work would be cool.”

“Uh-huh,” she didn’t quite know where the boy was going with this.

Finally, he blurted out, “Can ya make us race car drivers!?”

“I can, but it will cost you.”

“Money tain’t nothing.”

“Oh, it isn’t going to cost you money...”

A few months later, the boys returned to their hometown to thank Cassandra. She had turned them all into successful race car drivers. Of course, Cassandra was right about the price. The limited magic she knew could only be performed by taking something very important from the boys, something essential to who they were: their very manhood. They were women now, but they couldn’t be happier. They were living their dreams...even if they were doing it not quite as
expected.

So high


“Dude, I must be like SO high. I can see myself standing over there,” a wide-eyed Lucy stated while staring into her own eyes.

“Whoa, me too!” Hank laughed.

The fact of the matter was that both Lucy and Hank were too high to realize that they had actually swapped bodies with the two stoners being inside each other’s bodies. When their buzz wears off, the reality of their new situations would really sink in.

Keep it


“Carol! How could you possibly do this to me!?” Harry screamed at his old body.

“Relax, let me explain...”

“Explain? You stole my body, leaving me in yours! How could there possibly be an explanation?”

“Well, if that’s the way you want to be. I was going to give you back your body when I was done with it, but now I think I’ll keep it!”

Wake up (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Marc’s initial reaction to his new body was one fear. He curled up into a ball trying to wrap his head around the fact that he was now a woman. It just wasn’t right. He’d now have to deal with periods, and, oh god, there was the possibility of getting pregnant. Marc calmed himself down when he realized that in order to get pregnant, he’d have to first make love to a guy. He may be a woman now, but he was not about to do that any time soon.

Always check your receipt


“No, no, see, take a closer look at your receipt from the bodyswapping store.” Sam pointed out to the woman he had recently swapped bodies with, “This is the box for days and this is the box for years. You checked the latter after writing in the number ‘three.’ That means we are going to be switched for the next one thousand ninety two days. You can try to take this back to the store, but trying to convince me to go back with you is not going to do any good. I know what I was signing up for, and I have enjoyed my time as you so far. I look forward to the next three years living your life...”

Strange (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.


Don lifted himself up onto his feet as best he could--it was hard considering the high heels on his feet that he was now teetering on. As he stood, he never broke his gaze to the person across the room in his body staring back at him. Despite knowing that his body was now not his own, it still sort of felt like looking in a mirror, a mirror that didn’t mimic his actions. Then he saw his old body break down and cry. It once again felt weird seeing his body react in a way that he never would. Real men, after all, don’t cry. No matter what situation, you wouldn’t catch him shedding a tear, even if he was in the body of a woman now...

Upsidedown


Ricky had hated every day since he swapped bodies with that woman on the street from below the neck. He didn’t go out to play with his friends for fear of being made fun of, he had to switch clothes with the woman and felt silly doing so, and now his parents were taking him to visit a special school to avoid any embarrassment his situation might cause him at a normal public school. It was his world turned upsidedown.
