Science (Part 1)
As a major in neuroscience, Anthony took an immediate interest in signing up for an experiment that was set to take place over summer break. Aside from his academic curiosity, the study had a huge financial benefit. With the amount it paid, he would be able to skip finding a summer job and pay off a large chunk of his student loan. And, of course, he’d be able to experience first hand one of the department’s strangest devices: a body swapper.
He was a little upset that he had to be unconscious for the procedure; it meant he wouldn’t get to actually see the device at all. Then there was the matter of who he would swap with; he wouldn’t find out until after the swap had happened.
That actually turned out to be the biggest shock. He had expected to swap with another student...or, at the very least, someone who was interested in science. Instead, however, the person he swapped with was a woman who lived in town. She often looked for studies that paid cash, and this one was a huge windfall for her. Mere minutes after he had awoken from the swap, they sent him on his way. Anthony was very disoriented and confused as he walked back to the woman’s house, but at the same time, he felt like he was adapting quickly...
