Normal Day (Part 3)

I awoke feeling even stranger than last time, but knowing I was in a new body, I immediately rushed to a mirror on the wall. I was shocked when I saw my reflection. I was a woman! This was NOT what I had specified! I demanded answers. The odd man explained that trying to perform the body swap a third time would be far too dangerous to attempt, and he pulled out my list. The handwriting was a mess. The old man’s arthritis was certainly why. Many items were barely legible. A “b” looked like an “f” and instead of a request to “be male,” it certainly looked like a request to be “female.” I started to be thankful that gender seemed to be the only major screw up! I asked about my new body, now a bit more fearful of possible unknowns. It turned out she was young, successful, a non-smoker, mostly everything I could ask for. The only catch; I was now a woman, and there was nothing I could ever do about it!

So Far (Part 4)

It took Tiffany a while to consider her next step. She could convince Steve to screw up Xing’s life, but not as long as Marvin was in Steve’s body. She couldn’t just switch Marvin and Steve again, because Marvin would simply excel with Xing’s body. Ultimately, she dreaded the next step in her plan.

Tiffany woke up the next morning and rushed over to her own off-campus apartment. Sure enough, her own body was there getting ready for practice with a huge smile.

“And I thought it was fun being in THAT body,” Her own body told her, “Being in your body is even better.”

Tiffany rolled her eyes. She had no choice. She used to spell to switch her own body with Marvin. She was now in Steve’s body and Marvin was now in hers.

“Look,” She told him, “I saw how you were able to move with Xing’s body. With my body, you should be able to do even better; just don’t screw up my life in the next few days.”

“As long as your a good boyfriend to me in that time,” Marvin fluttered back.

Tiffany roller her eyes again; what had she done?

Loophole

Derek smiled as he looked over the legal brief his lawyer had sent over. When he had swapped bodies with Nancy a few days ago, it was supposed to only be for a week, but Derek simply loved being in her body. He knew he needed to find a loophole to stay in it. He hired the best attorney he could find. This brief was the result. It might not guarantee that he’d be able to stay in Nancy’s body forever, but it should tie things up long enough in the court to allow him to remain being her for a very, very long time.

Reality (Part 1)

Dr. Harvey Wexler had to admit that he had really outdone himself this time. His latest invention was nothing short of genius. With a few short lines of code and the press of a button, his machine could literally change reality. He turned small buildings into skyscrapers, filled a dry lake with water, and even tweaked with a few people he worked with. Of course, at the end of the day, he returned it all to normal. Tests were one thing, but he didn’t just want to change things at random unless it was for the benefit of mankind. He made his way home thinking about all the good he could do in the world when he suddenly felt very strange. All of his surroundings blurred around him. It was clear that someone was messing with his machine! The buildings had grown taller, and he had been turned into a woman! He noticed all the changes now, but he knew he didn’t have much time. If he didn’t get back to his invention, he would start to think of the changes as normal; they’d become his new reality. He estimated that he had about fifteen minutes before his memories would accept the altered reality as fact. If he walked fast, he could get back to his lab in ten minutes and reprogram things back to normal in three. Of course, he didn’t take into account that he was now wearing heels. He fumbled in the unfamiliar shoes, adding precious extra moments to his travel time.

Normal Day (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
I spent the week working on my list. I tried to describe my own self as best as possible without being too exact. I wrote things like “be between the ages of 20-25,” “weigh under 170 lbs.,” “be drug and disease free,” and “be male.” Writing was difficult with the old man’s mans. He must’ve suffered from arthritis. When I returned the next week, the experiments of the secret floor were no longer kept secret from me. I found that the odd man was part of a whole team of scientists working on body swapping technology. After a quick tour (where I saw them working on another unwilling victim), I handed over my list. The odd man nodded, and they put me under once more...
