The Future Depends on It

It all happened with a quick flash. Then suddenly, Rick was pushed against the wall. His jaw dropped when he saw who was confronting him.

“Why do you have my face?” He asked. Realizing his voice was now higher pitched, the true weirdness of his situation set in, “Why am I a woman? How did you get into my apartment? Why did you do this?”

“Look,” His own body was now explaining to him, “I’m a police officer from the future. I needed to come back in time and inhabit your body for a while. I don’t have much time to explain. You just need to stay right here in my body. Don’t go anywhere. Just stay here, where it’s safe. You were going to be murdered today, but the future depends on that not happening. So I’m came back in time and swapped with you. I’m going to be you for the day, and I’m going to make sure nothing bad happens to your body. You need to trust me. I’ve done this a hundred times. I know what I’m doing.”

It didn’t seem real, but Rick just nodded in agreement.
