Fear (Part 1)

Arthur stood in front of the class, trying to exude a sense of confidence. Sure, he had Miss Pultz’s body, but he certainly didn’t have her math skills. He wasn’t sure how he was going to get through the day as her...or potentially longer. It was all this crazy math stuff that had caused this problem in the first place. She had been tutoring him after class, showing him a particularly difficult equation. He couldn’t imagine an application. She attempted to show him a program she had been working on. One that, when utilized with the correct hardware, could swap two people’s bodies. He expressed his skepticism, and immediately she attempted to refute him by showing off her work.

In one sense, her invention worked perfectly. Quite shocked, Arthur found himself in Miss Pultz’s body. In another sense, it was a complete failure. Arthur’s body lay sprawled on the desk lifeless. His consciousness may have transfered into her, but hers didn’t seem to go into him. He knew he’d have to pretend to be her until he could figure this all out. And he knew it wasn’t going to be easy. As he stood up in front of the class, that fear was really starting to sink in.
