Ivana looked on in horror as the subway doors shut in front of her face. This wasn’t her stop, she didn’t even remember getting out of the train, and why was her body still sitting there? The body she had now when she looked down wasn’t her own; it was older, overweight, and male. She couldn’t do anything to stop the train before it zoomed out of the station.
Bill, meanwhile, certainly didn’t have any objections to his new body. As he removed the ribbons from his shapely legs, he thought about the body he now had. He wondered if she was a dancer and where she lived. He realized he had absolutely no clue. Luckily, a purse lay next to him with some of the answers. The others he’d just have to wing. He thought briefly about his own body. He had just gotten out of the train when this unexpected swap took place. But he didn’t want to think about it too much. Mostly, he was happy to leave that old life and body behind and he hoped to never even give it another thought.
