Thief

Ralph had been having a hard time lately with no job and no prospects. It was a moment of pure desperation when he decided to snatch a woman’s purse. He scoped her out for a few minutes as she walked into a department store. He figured he could go in, snatch it, and make a quick getaway outside. But just as he put his hand on it, the woman turned around and pointed a gun at him. He paused for a moment, but seeing that the gun was bright pink, he imagined it was a taser at worst and decided to risk it. Then she fired.

Ralph was shocked at what happened next. He was suddenly standing there with the pink gun in his hands, staring at himself. The gun must have been some sort of body swapper. He couldn’t imagine how or why this was supposed to work, but he didn’t waste another moment. Instead of continuing to stand there in shock, he still decided to make a break for it. He didn’t care whose body he had now, this life had to be better than his own. Judging from hearing his own voice scream in the distance to come back, he imagined the woman didn’t expect this reaction...
