On the Way Home


Donald had gotten on the subway late at night after a fun time out drinking with his friends. He was the only one in the car until a young woman got on just a few stops later. She picked the seat right next to him. He thought it was a little odd when she leaned her head onto his shoulder, but he was a little too drunk to object. He couldn’t quite remember what happened next, but he guessed that he passed out. When he awoke, he was once again alone in the car, yet he was still able to see the reflection of the woman in the glass of the train car. It took his drunken mind a minute to realize that reflection was HIS! A sense of panic set in as he couldn’t figure out how he became the woman from earlier. The panic slowly faded to curiosity as he soon found out how flexible his new feminine body was...

I Just Called to Say...


Leonard didn’t have time to react to the Great Shift before he felt a vibration and heard a ringing. He searched for a phone. It stopped for a moment before resuming again. This cycle repeated a few more times before he found the phone in a purse.

He answered. After a long pause he spoke.

“This is your body?” He asked the person on the other end.

“I guess I can stay put until you get here. I’m as weirded out by this whole body swapping thing as you are. Maybe I should give my old body a call to, but I can’t imagine what we are going to do about this whole thing at this point...”

A Blink


The Great Shift felt like little more than a blink at first for Douglas. He had been walking across the street, but he was soon suddenly at the other side. It was as if he was magically transported the last few feet. It felt a little strange, so he turned back to see his own body still standing there in the middle of the street for just a moment before a car plowed into it. He didn’t quite believe his eyes at first; he had also yet to notice the entirely new body he now had as well. It wasn’t until other people on the street began to panic that he noticed his own change. He was in the body of a woman now, and he really did just see his own body get struck by an automobile. It all happened so quick. An instant, a blink, a fleeting moment; he never would’ve expected it.

A Long Talk with Mom


“Oh...my..God,” Theodore said flatly as he sat in the car and looked over to his wife in the driver’s seat, realizing they had switched bodies, “I told you that your mom was a witch, and now she’s switched our bodies!”

“Stop calling my mom a witch! Plus, you have no proof this is on her.”

“We leave her to babysit the kids and she says some strange incantation on the way out the door. And the next thing we know, we’ve switched bodies.”

“She was just saying goodbye in..uh..Italian, I think.”

“Stop living in denial. She’s a witch! She was sick of arguing and now she’s done...this! I love you, honey. I know we fight, but I love you...but I do NOT want to be you. You need to go in and talk with your mom NOW.”

Threat


“If you don’t come back here, I’ll never let you swap back to your own body.”

It was a threat that Henry had heard so many times over the past three weeks, ever since Lauren had first stolen his body. It worked for a while; he’d come back hoping she’d swap back with him soon. It never happened. And this time, he just kept walking. He knew she was never going to swap back with him. He knew he was going to be stuck in her body forever, but that didn’t mean that he had to be her slave. He didn’t have to follow every single explicit command. No, he could still be his own person. He just had to accept that person was this body now..

Justice


Brian looked across to the neighboring high rise. He knew Amber was going to be shocked when she woke. He was looking forward to seeing her reaction when he realized she now had his body. In fact, she seemed more than shocked. She seemed angry, annoyed, and upset. And watching every minute of it was pure enjoyment for Brian. She deserved it for the way she treated people. Now he was the one in Amber’s body, the body of the daughter of a rich CEO. And she was in his body, the body of a lowly factory worker. It all seemed like such justice...

Copy


Jeff had spent all day in that chair. It was eerie; he looked EXACTLY like Eve. He wasn’t even sure how they were able to do this, but he was quite impressed. Of course, this was just the first part of his plan. Tonight, he’d go out on the town and ruin her reputation. It seemed like some well deserved revenge after she dumped him. Of course, he’d come to regret his actions the next morning, when he’d find none of the makeup he had worn to disguise himself as Eve would come off. He’d be stuck as her -- or at least a copy of her.
