Apologies

It had been a long three days for Marc since he agreed to let Julia use the Medallion of Zulu to switch bodies with him. She had been elusive about swapping back until she finally agreed to meet him at a bench in the park. However, instead of finding his own body sitting there, Marc saw a pair of headphones attached to an old iPod. He looked at the device to find a single track entitled “Apology to Marc.” Then he put on the earphones and hit play. Julia’s voice -- her original voice -- his present voice spoke. It started with her saying “I’m sorry” about ten times, then she explained that it had been her plan even before they swapped to steal Marc’s body. She never had any intentions of giving it back. It was all a little surprising for Marc. He never would’ve expected Julia wanting to be a man or him -- at least not forever. Even when she presented the medallion to him, she really had him convinced it was just curiosity, that she’d want to return as much as he would. But now here he sat in Julia’s body; what would now be his body -- unless -- the final part of the recording gave Marc instructions on where to find the medallion. If he wanted, he could steal someone else’s body and go back to being a guy. But could he really do that to someone else? Maybe he could find a guy who really wanted to be a woman?
