Two Spells

“Maybe we should get jobs in Hollywood,” Troy laughed, “I can’t believe that we actually convinced our wives that we were upset to be stuck in their bodies!”

“Oh, come on, that’s not the half of it,” Ryan retorted, “We tricked them into thinking this whole body swap was their idea! They thought they were punishing us!”

While Troy and Ryan continued to laugh, thinking they had gotten what they wanted from their wives, the truth was far different. After their wives had cast the spell to swap bodies with their husbands, they realized it couldn’t be reversed. They tried a second spell, one that made the two husbands happy and quite delusional about the swap. Of course, when Troy and Ryan continued to pretend to be upset, the wives thought the second spell had failed.

Like a Dream

After the experiment, James woke up more than a little disoriented. He knew who he really was, or who he was supposed to really be. After all, he still had all his own memories. But he also had all the memories of Rachel, the woman whose body he was now in. He remembered her first kiss, her marriage and divorce, and even going to bed last night as her. That meant his own memories felt a little bit like a forty year long dream, pushed to the side of the thoughts, being overwhelmed by the evidence of looking down and seeing Rachel’s body, that told his mind those were the correct memories. He had the continue to tell himself that he was really James, that all those thoughts had happened. After all, he had a mission to accomplish.

Hair

Tim had hoped the latest text from Zoe would be good news. It wasn’t. She still hadn’t figured out a way to switch their bodies back. He was hoping they’d find a way back soon. He had a good time at first, but when he woke up the first morning in her body, she was a little shocked by how messy his hair was. Usually Amber had very straight hair, but it seemed naturally it was a big, curly mess. He couldn’t seem to do much to tame in, and he wondered what she did every morning to get it under control. In fact, many of the daily routine activities of being a woman just seemed to take so long that he suddenly couldn’t wait to get back to his own body. However, until Zoe could fix this, he was stuck.

Perfect Man

“Wait, wait, wait, don’t go, Kelly. Let me explain. I know I look like some strange woman, but it’s actually me, your husband, Ted. I didn’t want to freak out the kids at home, but I knew you’d be here tonight. I knew you wouldn’t miss this. I swapped with this woman a week ago. I don’t know how. I passed a few days just thinking it was a dream or that I’d wake up the next day in my own body. I need you to believe me, Kelly.” An exasperated Ted explained.

“Are you crazy? Body swapping? You expect me to believe that you are my husband? Wouldn’t he have told me? Or rather, if there is a woman inside his body? I’ve certainly heard zero the past week. In fact, he’s been a saint, picking up the girls at soccer practice, taking me out to dinner twice...” Kelly paused thinking about this. Her husband was never so selfless. Maybe this woman was right, maybe she had swapped bodies with her husband. Then again, the woman now in her husband’s body seemed like the perfect man, better than her husband ever was. Did she even want them to entertain the idea of helping them swap back?

Change of Mood

When Heather arrived on Exchange Island with her husband Thomas, she could tell he wasn’t happy with the body he ended up with. The entire first night, he didn’t say a word about the fact that he was a woman; he just had a grumpy look on his face. He woke up the next morning with a groan, telling Heather that he’d get ready and meet her outside. She sighed. It didn’t take her long to shower and change, leaving her husband as a gloomy lump under the sheets in the room.

It was about an hour later when Thomas finally arrived to meet up with Heather at the resort’s open air restaurant. She was surprised. She had expected him to come down wearing jeans or sweatpants, but instead, he wore a beautiful white dress with heels and makeup. He walked gracefully over to his wife, gave her a kiss, and sat down. Now it was her turn to be speechless.

Thomas apologized for his behavior up until this point. He just needed some time to get used to this new body. From this point on, he was going to embrace it. He was finally starting to enjoy himself. In fact, he confessed he might actually be a little sad when the vacation was over and he’d have to switch back. Heather wasn’t sure what suddenly changed his mind, but she was glad he was happy!

Spy (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Sure enough, the mission was a breeze thanks to the device and this body, but after it was over, all James wanted to do was change back to himself. However, as he looked through the device, the photo he was supposed to use to change back to himself was gone. In fact, all the photos on the device were wiped. For the time being, it looked like he was stuck like this. At least until he was able to return to HQ. Of course, proving who he really was and getting through security was going to be a big challenge. Then there was the matter of the device itself. If it had malfunctioned by wiping the photos, who knows what might happen when they try to use it again.

Spy

Technology had certainly changed the spy game in the past ten years. James was looking at the device he had just gotten that would allow him to go undercover quite effortlessly. He simply called up one of the photos on the device, and it soon transformed his body within seconds into the person pictured on the device. He knew a young Asian woman would be the perfect cover for this assignment, but he felt a little weird. The device wasn’t some sort of hologram, it didn’t just change your visual appearance, it altered you very form, your DNA. That meant all of the hours that James had spent at the gym didn’t mean much on this mission. He had his spy skills, but not the muscles to back them up. Of course, with a disguise this good, he was sure he wouldn’t need them.
