That's Just the Way It Works
Mick had been so happy to swap bodies with Carli after she got out his cab. He had hated his time behind the wheel of the magic taxi. After the swap, he was so glad to put that time behind him. He didn’t expect the shout from behind him two days later. When he turned around, he was surprised to see the body of the cab driver with a rather displeased look.
“How’d you find me?” Mick asked nervously.
“You have my life,” Carli grumbled from the cab driver’s body, “I know where I live; I know where I work; I know my schedule. You could’ve at least tried to do something different to throw me off.”
“You aren’t supposed to follow me.” “Who said? Now give me my body back.”
“Didn’t you read the journal?” Mick asked, “There’s no going back. People have tried; it’s never worked. Even if I got in the back of that cab again right now; it wouldn’t work. Face it, I’m you now. You’ll just have to find someone else to be; continue the curse of that cab. That’s just the way it works.”
