Seven (Part 1)
The experiment was supposed to last for seven days. Jack had known this when he arrived on that Monday morning. He also knew exactly what he was agreeing to; to be swapped with his college classmate Angie for that time. He’d be spending the week as her, keeping up appearances as much as possible. He’d follow her schedule, her routine. He hated it the entire time. Her clothes were too tight and revealing; her interests were boring to him. He was eager to go back. But when he returned to the lab the following Monday, she didn’t. It meant that he was stuck as her, at least until they could locate his body. For the next few days, he just continued as best he could as her and with her routine. He hoped the call would come at any second, but it was now Wednesday. He had run down to the beach on her morning jog. He wondered why he kept it up. Now that the seven days were over, he didn’t have to, did he? She was the one in breach of contract; he could now do anything he wanted.
