What Can We Do?


“Will you relax?” Andrew smiled, “Maybe this will all just reverse itself after we’re done swimming.”

“Relax?” Tara asked, “This wasn’t some minor thing like someone taking our cell phones while we were in the pool. We switched bodies while we were changing in the locker rooms! It’s completely surreal. I’m not sure we can just expect to switch back once we’re done!”

“What other choice do we have? We don’t know how it happened; we don’t know how to switch back. Let’s just enjoy ourselves and hope it fixes itself on it’s own.”

Tara scowled at Andrew. She couldn’t shake the feeling he was behind this all somehow...

Waiting (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

While Mike would be the first to admit that he enjoyed his time in Kylie’s body, he had been waiting her for over an hour for her to return so that they could switch back. Fun was fun, but he wanted to go back to his own body. The medallion was still right here in Kylie’s purse; he was ready to switch back. He just needed Kylie with his body to show up. He started to worry. What if he was stuck like this? What if he was stuck as Kylie? But, then again, he could always use the medallion in this purse to switch with someone else.

Waiting


Mike had to admit that he had a good time today. He never would’ve expected it, but he enjoyed spending the past twelve hours in Kylie’s body. When they had been given the weird medallion; they didn’t believe it would work. Then they tried actually using it this morning! They were shocked to end up with each other’s bodies, and (after switching clothes) they decided they’d each spend the day as the other and meet back up here at night. Mike had kept the medallion safe with him in Kylie’s purse. Now he was just sitting here and waiting for Kylie with his body. Then they could use the medallion again and switch back. He had enjoyed his time, but he was pretty anxious to get back to his own body.

Entranced


As soon as his body was stolen by the driver of the magic taxi, Tim went looking for a body to steal himself. It didn’t take him long to pick one. When she entered the cab, he was immediately entranced; he decided she would be the one. He dropped her off and wished her a nice day. The next thing he knew, he was on the side of the road in her body, as she drove away in the magic taxi in the cabbie’s body. However, as he stood there, Tim was having a slight regret. He was barely balancing on the heels of her boots. He was afraid a single step would send him crashing down. He wasn’t sure what he was going to do.

Results


Jeff was pretty sure he was never going to tire of seeing this reflection any time he looked in the mirror. It always put a big smile on his face. He was pretty sure he lucked out with the results of the Great Shift. Many of his friends ended up in bodies that were old or just plain ugly. But Jeff? Jeff’s new body was amazingly attractive; he loved showing it off. He even loved being a woman. The Great Shift was probably the best thing that could’ve ever happened in his opinion.

In Flight


Even after landing, Ryan was still a little bit rattled from the flight. The plane veered a little off course in order to avoid some turbulence and flew into the airspace of a strange placed called Exchange Island. Ryan had just been sitting in his seat, listening to music, and almost falling asleep when it all happened. He was suddenly on his feet pouring a drink, which he ended up spilling all over another passenger. The other passenger got quite upset and started yelling at Ryan, but then his anger shifted to a far greater problem when he realized he wasn’t in his own body. Everyone on the plane had now been swapped with someone else. The bodies the pilots were now inside rushed up front. Ryan realized he was now in the body of a stewardess. It seemed their short time over the Island was just long enough to initiate the Island’s swapping ability, but not long enough to trigger a return to normal. It also resulted in a set of new rules warning planes not to fly over the island. To avoid public panic, everyone was asked to maintain the identities of who they swapped into. Ryan was a little nervous about taking over the life of the stewardess and being a woman! But a generous settlement from the airline made it a little easier.

Walk a Mile


The phrase “try walking a mile in someone else’s shoes” seemed like a good philosophy to try. In fact, Neil had invented a body swapping device that would allow him to do just that. He decided to pick someone who, at least on outward appearances, had a very different life from his own, in order to maximize possible empathy. Plus, the woman he picked had very unique shoes as well. It didn’t take long for Neil to feel that empathy. He probably walked only a few feet before he jumped up on a wall and sat down. Walking in heels was difficult! To make matters worse, the woman in his body had just run off after swapping. He wasn’t sure how he was going to get anywhere with these things on his feet, but he sure didn’t want to run around barefoot either. It seemed he was going to learn the true meaning of that old phrase.
