Wash (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

It had been a long day, but Louis was finally washing the last car. He felt a certain sense of accomplishment, having earned more money than he expected, but he also felt a little bit of shame. It felt weird having guys gawk at him all day, and he felt like he wouldn’t forget the feeling of having a woman’s body or what it was like to prance around in a bikini any time soon. The car’s owner gave him a $100 and asked for change. Louis walked over where he kept the cash box, but he soon discovered it had gone missing. It wasn’t the money that he was freaking out about though; he had also been keeping the medallion in there for safe keeping. Now it was gone. The way back to his original body -- it was gone! He tried to stay calm. He couldn’t believe he was going to be stuck as a copy of his sister for the rest of his life! No, that wasn’t going to happen. It couldn’t have gotten far! If it was a thief, they had to be around. He would find them and catch them! Then he could switch back...

Wash


Louis didn’t want to admit to his friends that his family couldn’t afford to send him on the senior class trip. He needed to raise some cash for himself fast. A car wash was the quickest and easiest way he could think of, but he knew he needed a gimmick. That Saturday morning, he got all set up, then pulled a box out of the back of his closet with a cheap-looking piece of jewelry in it. Then he went into his sister’s room and plucked out the bikini she had left behind after she went off to college. He placed the necklace on, then touched the bikini to it. Within minutes, he had changed to an exact copy of his sister, then he stripped down and put on the bikini. As he washed cars, he felt like he was exploiting his sister a little bit, but she hadn’t come back once since leaving for college; he was sure she’s never find out. Plus, he already had raised a stack of cash, and there was a line of cars down the block.

Ten Million


As he waited for his hook up, Charles was beginning to wonder if this was worth it. For the past few years, he had felt totally unappreciated at work. He hadn’t gotten a raise in years; his benefits had been cut several times; he had just had enough. It was enough for him to take the biggest risk he could imagine. After a few emails back and forth with the competition, he went into the development lab to steal an experimental device. He had worked on this thing a few years back, but the company shelved it after determining there was no market to justify the device’s huge production expense. He put it into a black bag and made his way out of the building. He knew it wouldn’t be long before they’d look for him, and that’s why he opened the bag just outside of company property. He looked at the device inside, a little nervous about what he was going to do. Once he did this, he knew he couldn’t be followed, but he also knew he couldn’t go back. He took a deep breath and activated the body swapper inside....

Now he waited with the device in the bag. The competition would be paying him ten million for the body swapper. He knew once he gave it up, he’d have no way back to his own body. Of course, he hadn’t developed a targeter for the device yet, so it’s questionable if he’d be able to get back to his own body right now anyway. It had been very effective for escaping though. He got this woman’s body by chance. Even if there was a way for the company to find him, there was no way to legally connect him to the theft, or to prove that he hadn’t swapped a second or third time.

At the Mall


Joe realized he probably should’ve made better small talk with this woman while she was in the cab. All he knew was that she had asked to go to the mall; he didn’t know why. Now, thanks to the magic of the taxi he had been driving, he was now her...in her body at the mall. The same thing happened to him a few weeks back, when the former driver had stolen his body. Of course, he had been taking the cab home at the time; it was probably easy for the person who ended up in his body. But now Joe was in this body, at the mall for some reason. She likely needed something; he didn’t know what. Then he would need to find his way home. He certainly had no idea where she lived. Things might actually get a little tougher as time went on...

Two Steps


“Holy crap! How do you walk in these things?” Michael screamed as he started to topple over after taking a mere two steps. Luckily, Vivian was there to catch him.

“I’ve had ten or so years of experience,” Vivian replied, “You’ve been wearing heels now for what? Ten minutes or so? And this is your first time standing in them. You’ll just have to get used to it.”

“Can’t we just use the machine to switch back now?”

“And fry both of our brains and become vegetables? No thanks! Our brains need time to settle, otherwise they won’t make it through the process again and we’ll be left braindead.”

“Look, I’m glad the test was successful, and that your machine was actually able to swap bodies. But how long are you saying I’m going to be trapped in your body?”

“If we wait until tomorrow, the chances of our brains making it is fifty-fifty. If we wait a week, there’ll be less than a one percent chance of anything going wrong.”

“So you’re saying I’m stuck in short skirts and heels for a week?”

“I know you don’t like my fashion choices -- ”

“No, I love your fashion choices, just not when I’m the one who has to weat them. I guess I’ll cope, but you got to switch us back the second you think it’s safe, okay?”

“Okay...”

Sweater


Yesterday had been a pretty miserable experience for Ted after he swapped bodies with his co-worker Rose. They had both agreed to not tell anyone about the swap and hopefully find a way to switch back as soon as possible. Ted hated going home to Rose’s husband, getting dressed in a skirt and heels the next day, but he was horrified when he saw her.

“I thought we agreed to keep this swap a secret,” He whispered to her, “What are you wearing?”

“What? I found it in your closet!” Rose protested.

“That’s one of my wife’s dresses that your wearing as what? A shirt? And her belt! And even her necklace!”

“I think I look good!”

Ted rolled his eyes, “Let’s just hurry up and reverse this!”

Transformation Suit


Roger sat on the bank of the river not far from his lab. He couldn’t believe the test worked, and he thought about the incredible weight of his new invention. With it, he could impersonate celebrities or world leaders. He could cause chaos or create world peace. What he had created was a simple suit that allowed the user to transform themselves into any form. He had used it to turn himself into a blonde woman several times now. But the latest test was different. With the latest test, he was able to take off the bulky suit and yet maintain the transformed form. The transformation suit was sitting back in his lab while he sat here in a skintight leather outfit that he had changed into afterward. Essentially speaking, without the suit on the body, there was no evidence who he really was and no way to get back without putting the suit on again. He pondered what he could do with this a bit more, then took some time to just enjoy his accomplishment.
