Over the next few hours, Chuck started to become mobile again. He lifted himself up of the floor and began to think of a plan. Right now, there was no telling how many people had gotten close enough to be affected by his machine, or even what its range was. Plus, he wouldn’t be able to get close enough to turn it off without being swapped into another body far away. He’d have to turn off the power to his house--perhaps the entire block or neighborhood--from as far away as possible. He could try to talk with the electric company, but he doubt they would take him seriously looking like he did right now.

Vertigo (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Carson tried to pull the long hair back, but he had nothing to hold it with, so it kept falling in his face. Of course, the long hair was the least of his worries; he had an entirely new body! He wondered if this had something to do with his head spinning. Maybe he was just sort of imagining this body. Maybe his head would sort of clear up and he’d feel like himself again. But as time passed, that seemed less and less likely.

Adrenaline (Part 1)

When the Great Shift happened, Tom found himself suddenly on the highway, doing 60 MPH. Some quick defensive driving and he managed to avoid several accidents. It wasn’t until he pulled over that he realized his location wasn’t the only thing that abruptly changed--so had his body! Instead of being the middle-aged man he once was, he was now in the body of a professional young woman! He was quite surprised he was able to operate the pedals in her heels! Maybe he had just been running on adrenaline.

Fat!

Gerry did his best to smile. After all, this was his vacation. Others came to Exchange Island and ended up in the body of bodybuilders or supermodels; he ended up in the body of a very fat woman. He didn’t feel comfortable in his borrowed body, so he opted for the resort’s pool instead of the overcrowded beach. With each step it felt like he was moving so much weight, so much mass, but he slowly became used to it. He couldn’t wait for the week to be over, being in his own thin body would feel like a breeze!

The Private and the General

Though most troops were fortunate enough to find themselves with other soldiers on-base after the Great Shift, Private Mark Irving wasn’t so lucky. He ended up in town in a woman’s body. He didn’t want to be listed as AWOL, so he quickly found his way back to the barracks. Before he had a chance to change back into uniform, he encountered his commanding officer and gave a swift salute. “Whatevs,” the General’s body told Mark, “Like, chill.” A 16-year-old girl was now inside the body of the General; it appears that Mark wasn’t the only one involved in an off-base swap!

After all that had happened to him, Matt really just wanted to stay in bed all day...especially after last night, but, of course, fate would step in as he soon felt waves splashing on his feet. He squealed as the slightly cold water hit his legs. So much for staying inside!

Abroad

Marvin had heard about people’s bodily organs getting stolen in foreign countries, but he had never imagined he would get his entire body stolen! He had been drugged, kidnapped, swapped into a woman’s body, and dumped outside of a restaurant. He now sat outside with no money or ID in his pockets and no idea what to do!
