Responsibility (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Herman felt a little bad about impersonating this woman’s daughter, but he couldn’t resist the temptation once the Great Shift swapped him into the young body. He had the chance at a new life, to be young and carefree again. He had a stressful life with a lot of responsibility; he jumped at the possibility for a life free of worry.

And so neither Herman nor Jack ever told the other that neither were who they appeared to be. Both thought the other hadn’t been shifted. Herman kept it a secret from Jack to live out the fantasy of being a child; Jack kept it a secret from Herman thinking that a child needed a stabilizing force in life, like an unshifted mother.
