Don’t Get into Trouble

“Don’t get into trouble” was what Eric’s brother Allen had said each day this week before leaving for work. Eric easily complied, spending his days on the couch, mostly playing video games. Even though the warning didn’t seem necessary, Eric understood Allen’s worry. It was a very long seven days since a inexplicable cosmic occurrence had swapped Eric into the body of Allen’s wife, and Allen was just looking out for both her body. It wasn’t a bad deal for Eric, being able to just goof off around the house all day, which generally meant a lot of gaming. But today, he had a slightly different feeling. The games began to feel...boring. By noon, he thought it might not be a bad idea to go out and buy a new one. It would actually be the first time he stepped out of the house in this body. Going to the mall didn’t seem very eventful. It wasn’t until he got home that he noticed anything weird. Instead of buying a new game like he intended, he had bought all sort of clothes, shoes, bras, panties, and so forth. The receipts totaled over a thousand dollars. The weirdest thing was that he had basically been on autopilot at the stores. He wasn’t sure if Allen would consider this “trouble” or not, but Eric was sure his brother wouldn’t be happy, regardless...
