Difference


Just before her lips met his, Ron pushed her back.

“Stop it, David,” He said, “I know you’re in Tanya’s body. I know that because of what they did to you that you’re starting to think like her and even act like her, but you’re not her. You’re my old pal and NOT my girlfriend.”

She began to tear up, “Why not? If I look like her, act like her, and think like her...am I not Tanya? I only have very fleeting memories of being David. In a few more days, I won’t even have those. There will be no difference between what I am now and what Tanya was.”

“I’ll know the difference,” Ron sighed, “Even if you can’t feel it, I can.”

Super Powers


Mutant genes and super powers seemed like the stuff of comic books and movies until Tyler discovered he possessed an odd ability. If he touched the tips of his fingers to someone’s skin, he would morph into an exact copy of that person. It was a slow process; it took about an hour. There didn’t seem to be any way for him to return to his original body either -- not that he minded. He enjoyed being a new person ever few days (or even every few hours). When he stumbled on a body that he particularly liked, he would put on a set of gloved to avoid an accidental transformation. Oddly enough, the body he was in right now was the women he sold him these gloves at the store. She thought it odd that he was asking her to try them on, but he wanted to be sure they fit when he transformed into her!

Uncomfortable


Nathan shifted uncomfortably as he sat in the waiting room. This was going to be his first time seeing the gynecologist since the Great Shift. This was the first time since becoming a woman that he was actually feeling a little awkward. He knew this was going to be one of the things he’d have to get used to now that he was a woman, but it still felt weird. Then again, he had remembered one of his girlfriends had complained about the experience long before the Shift. Maybe this was just the kind of visit that made anyone uncomfortable, no matter their initial body. The thought didn’t offer Nathan much comfort as his name was called.

Riches (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Several months passed before Ralph was finally happy. He was convinced there was no way the woman whose body he had would be claiming her life. There was no signs of her husband or his body either. He was in the clear; the riches were all his. Of course, he had also gotten used to being a woman as well. In fact, he was actually starting to enjoy it!

Of course much of his enjoyment could be chalked up to the vast wealth. He was able to buy any outfit he desired, vacation on any beach he wished, and so on.

While he had known from the onset the Great Shift was like a lottery, and he knew he had really won, he was finally starting to feel like a winner.

Riches (Part 1)

It was difficult for Ralph to be happy. In a way, it was like he won the Great Shift lottery. He found himself inside the body of a very rich woman, who lived in a mansion with a pool. But the fact remained that it was still the body of a woman; the fact that he was now female was sitting with Ralph in the wrong way. If the woman who he now was ever claimed her life back, he’d lose all the riches but still be stuck being a woman.

Then there was the matter of things he found inside the mansion. This woman didn’t live alone. There was a man in her life, most likely her husband. What if he came back? Or just someone in his body? He’d have to share all this with that person. If the man wasn’t shifted, there would probably be all sorts of messy legal affairs, and Ralph was sure it was yet another scenario where he’d lose all the money. Even if the man was shifted, that guy could claim most of the assets. There was, of course, another option. Ralph did look like the man’s wife now. He supposed if the guy was interested...no way, Ralph was NOT interested.

For now, he just hoped no one else ever claimed any of this.

Code


Rachel came into the Head Programmer’s office for the third time since the incident. She saw him still busy at work on his laptop. “Have you made any progress, Tim?”

Tim sighed, “I’m still not sure how this was even physically possible, let alone what sort of bug in the code could’ve caused this. Is it possible that the two events just coincidentally happened at the same time?”

“I don’t think our heads winding up on each other’s bodies is just something that happens. It took place right after running a new version of your code on that thing downstairs. There has to be a connection.”

“I’m still not seeing anything. This might go faster if I could cut your nails. They’re so long; it makes it hard to type.”

“Don’t you dare. I spent good money to get those done last weekend. In fact, if anything is out of place on my body when I get it back, you’re in big trouble.”

“IF you get it back,” Tim corrected, “We still have no idea how to fix this.”
