Self (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

A few of the lab techs noticed Victor’s body movements after the swap and approached him. They asked him how he felt.

“I feel fine,” He said, “But I’m not sure I want to swap anymore.”

The researchers looked puzzled.

“I like being me. I like being Shawna.” He said, “I see that Victor guy over there. He looks like a dork; I don’t want to swap with him anymore.”

The researchers were confused, but Victor wasn’t. In the short few moments he had been in Shawna’s body, he had convinced himself that since he looked like her, he must BE her. The swap was irrelevant, and since he was her, he concluded that the swap must not have happened. It made perfect sense, philosophically.

The researchers were more concerned. Now they wanted to coax Victor back a little closer, so they could jolt him again in order to swap him and Shawna back to their own bodies. But Victor wasn’t having any of it. There was no way he was going to be Victor ever again!
