Reflect (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Rick slumped to the ground in front of the mirror. He still couldn’t believe that he was now a woman, all be it a gorgeous woman, but a woman nonetheless. He had so many questions. How did this happen? Where did the clothes he was wearing come from? He still seemed to be in his own home just in someone else’s body. Was someone else in his body? He didn’t have any answers, and his head was just swirling with confusion that he couldn’t think straight enough to find solutions. He was just overwhelmed with his new body.

Lewis knew he couldn’t object. That was one of the few rules of Reassignment that everyone knew. Reluctantly, he entered the machine. It sparked and smoked some more before Lewis left. He held his head; it seemed to be in pain, but the men ignored it and simply escorted him back to the interview room.

“I don’t feel so well. My head is throbbing. Do you have an Aspirin or something?” He asked.

“Don’t worry. That will go away. It is a side effect of the process. Now please answer a few simple questions for me. What is your name?”

“That’s a silly question,” Lewis replied still holding his head, “Y’all know my name. It’s Francis...Francis McCarthy.”

Winter Break (Part 3)

No matter what, Kurt was having trouble wiping the smile off his face. Whatever that thing did which caused him to turn into his friend Chelsea, also seemed to prevent him from feeling anything other than happy -- at least for now. Rationally, he knew he should be concerned about being swapped into the wrong body and about being alone in the woods, but he still couldn’t seem to rally his emotions to actually physically worry about it. Still, that didn’t meant he couldn’t do something about at least one of these things. He went back to tracing his track in the snow and looking for his friends. After about an hour, he finally saw someone. He could recognize the clothes from a pretty good distance. After all, they were the ones that he had put on this morning. Soon enough, his own former body saw Kurt as well and started running towards him.

The flowers soon wilted and whithered before disintegrating completely, but at the same time, Bill’s elderly face soon got more youthful, even his clothes became more vibrant and looked newer. The two friends stood in shock as they witnessed the changed.

“You should’ve been nicer to these people.” He told his buddies, “They really have some interesting things for sale here. I was planning on harvesting the pollen from those flowers and saving it until I was an old man. The magic inside that pollen allows people to grow younger, as you can see. Just about everything here is magic. But I don’t they’ll let you take advantage of any of it. You pissed everyone here off with your insults, including me. Enjoy the rest of your road trip, guys! I’m staying right here!”

Forgot Password?

Jared had been completely floored by the advanced technology of the website he had just visited. After entering a few personal details, the site had allowed him to customize his own body -- not his avatar online but his actual REAL body! A few keystrokes and he had turned himself into a gorgeous, leggy blond woman. He spent the entire weekend enjoying his new body, but knowing he’d have to go work on Monday morning, he returned to the site to get back to normal on Sunday night. However, he couldn’t remember his password. He tried a few of his common picks, but none of them seemed to work. Then he realized that maybe he was logging in with the wrong username. He tried a couple different combinations. None of them worked. He tried to retrieve his password or username, but the site didn’t seem to recognize his email. He got even more frustrated when the link for new sign ups seemed to be broken. He couldn’t belive he had forgotten his password!

If I Was a Rich Girl (Part 1)

With nearly all his credits out of the way, Luke only had one class left to take to complete his University courses in his final semester of senior year. It was a required course that many dreaded. It was meant as an introductory class to teach tolerance for incoming freshman, but many put it off until their final year. This was because they would be forced to spend the semester in someone else’s body, and this just didn’t sit well with many students. Luke sighed deeply before opening the envelope containing the name of the person he would swap with. The form letter was followed by the name: Erin Birches. He groaned. Erin was a senior, like him, but that’s where the similarity ended. Erin was rich and spoiled. No one really liked her. Luke groaned again. Starting tomorrow, he would BE her. He expected more of a ceremony. Instead, he just woke up the next day in her body. She must’ve gone out the night before. He could taste stale beer still in her mouth, and she obviously had just slept in her clubbing outfit. He stood up and could clearly feel a hangover. But digging through her purse, he found her wallet full of cash along with her credit cards. Suddenly, he realized an upside to being stuck in the body of a rich girl for a while.

Infected

Joseph had been one of the earliest infected with the transformation virus. So early that no one believed who he really was the morning he woke up in the body of a black woman. With no proof of identity, he quickly fell into a routine of poverty. It wasn’t for at least two weeks, when the virus became widespread, that people finally started to believe him. His early infection quickly became of interest to scientists, who now sought him out to run tests or take blood. He agreed with a soured and depressed look on his face. He figured he should help out -- if he couldn’t help himself, at least he could help others -- but he certainly wished at least one of these doctors had taken him seriously two weeks ago when the virus first infected him!

Time to Relax

Jeremy had hoped for a simple, relaxing day on the beach. He had fallen asleep under his umbrella but woke up with a shock. He stood up and started to examine his body -- it was a woman’s body dressed in a pink bikini, NOT his own. What the heck had happened? How had he swapped bodies with this woman? After looking down at his body, he started to look around the crowded beach. His own body should still be sleeping a little ways away, he could go over and try to investigate. However, every step in this new body just felt weird and strange to him. He had no idea just how bouncy breasts could be!

Now realizing a huge potential upside to being stuck in Eileen’s body for a while, Gavin was finding it hard to hold back a huge smile as he questioned Eileen about what he’d have to do to return the device to RD. She saw a potential opening to get the device back and told him that it needed to be returned first thing in the morning and that she could hold onto it until then, but Gavin just assured her that he’d keep it safe until then. Then he asked just how long it would be until they could switch back, more than just a night? She told him it wouldn’t work again for at least a week. He smiled again, thinking to himself that a week would be plenty of time to plunder all sorts of top secret information from Eileen’s department.

As the man approached, Al put down his drink and moved closer himself. He began to dance again, but his movements were less awkward now and more fluid. He was feeling comfortable in his new body...too comfortable. He began to feel like his movements were almost seductive, and once he finally wiggled his way close enough, he planted a big kiss on the man he had been eyeing. Al’s emotions were swirling now. He wanted to hate this, but he had to admit that he was actually feeling exactly the opposite. He was loving every moment of this. He danced with the man for what seemed like an eternity before finally calling it a night and following the man back to his room...

Tide (Part 1)

Dexter was still trying to fathom what had just happened to him about an hour ago now. He had been minding his own business at the beach when a woman ran up to him and shoved a medallion she was wearing to his chest. Then she took it off and threw it in the ocean. She gave him an evil grin as she stripped down to her bikini, and that’s when the changes started. Slowly, she turned into him and he turned into her. As he own clothes practically fell off him, he reluctantly put the clothing on the woman had just taken off. She then ran off without a word. Dexter was speechless. Still in shock, he sat down on a rock, hoping the tide would carry the strange medallion that caused this back to shore.

Aid

Xavier had originally gone to southeast Asia as part of a humanitarian aid mission shortly after a hurricane. It was hard for him to be without many of the comforts of home but even harder to see the devastation. He found it difficult to even fathom the level of suffering. On his final day, he was a little relieved to be going home, but one woman from the village he had helped was apparently a little more than jealous. She used some strange ancient magic to steal his body. It was tough for Xavier to live her life, much of what she owned had been destroyed by the hurricane. One of the few joys Xavier found was when he was able to get his hands on some comforts from home -- even little things like cookies or snacks seemed like a big deal to him now. He never realized how good he had it before he found himself trapped in this woman’s body and her life!

Community Meeting (Part 3)

A woman with a nearly shaven head entered the room. “Is everyone here swapped too?” She asked.

John was the first ro rush over and answered in the affirmative.

The woman, who explained her name was Larry, explained that the phenomenon wasn’t limited. Everywhere seemed to be in the same boat. Angelica showed Larry a map; locations were circled.

“So, it’s not just us.” John said, “It’s everyone?”

He wasn’t quite sure if that made this whole situation better or worse. At least people would believe who he really was, and he wouldn’t have to deal with whatever Lina had been about to warn him about.

Silly

Roy and his sister, Anne, had long ago learned to live with their curse. Every 24 hours, they would switch bodies. Roy would spend one day as himself, the next day as Anne, and then back to himself and so on. But swapping into Anne’s body today was a little strange. Anne had decided to wear a ridiculous outfit knowing that Roy would feel humiliated walking around in it. He certainly did; he felt like everyone was staring at him and thinking how silly he looked. He tried to just suck it up but still felt awkward. In a way, he guessed he deserved this. The other day, he had gone out drinking in his own body, leaving Anne with a rather bad hangover to deal with. He only hoped her revenge would only last this one time.
