Front and Center
Monica was the type of student who would arrive late and sit in the back of class. Sometimes she wouldn’t show up at all. Then one day, it all changed. Monica arrived in class even before the teacher and was sitting front and center, eager to take notes. The whole class, including the teacher, was a bit shocked by her sudden change of behavior. What none of them realized was that wasn’t really Monica anymore. Sure, it was her body, but inside that body was the mind of a guy named Will. Will lived nearby. He was bright and talented, but his family was too poor to pay for college. Luckily, Will was very, very smart. He had invented a body switching machine, and he had used it to steal Monica’s body. To Will, it seemed like a perfect trade. After all, it seemed Monica didn’t even want to attend classes. He’d do that for her; heck, he’d live her entire college life. Of course, all this knowledge would be nothing without the diploma to back it up, so he’d have to continue being Monica after college, for the rest of his life.
