It was just a quick flash of light, but Charlie found that in that instant he went from sitting at home to standing in front of a crowd. It only took a few more minutes for him to realize he was in a woman’s body, wearing a fancy dress, standing next to a man in a suit. The building he was in was a church and there was a pastor. It didn’t take him long to piece together that he was suddenly in the body of a bride about to be wed.
Charlie knew he wanted to no part of this. He walked out without speaking a single word.
As he walked the streets, he soon discovered that he wasn’t the only one who had swapped bodies. In fact, just about everyone he encountered was talking about being swapped. It wasn’t much comfort, but at least it meant the wedding attendees didn’t question his sudden running off.
He wasn’t sure what he was going to do now, however. He was in a strange body with nothing except for the clothes on his back, which weren’t exactly the most comfortable, as they were meant for a formal setting and not for running about town.
