Friends


Chloe awoke and realized her couldn’t move her arms; they were strapped down to a chair. The worry on her face was obvious, but there didn’t seem to be a soul to express it to. After a good amount of time struggling to free herself, a figure finally entered the room. She grew more nervous until she saw his face.

“Jake!” She screamed recognizing her friend, “Thank God it’s you! Help me out of here!”

Her worry quickly returned when he shot back an evil smile.

“Soon enough,” He said, “Your body will be freed once my mind is the one inside of it. Yes, I’ve been your friend for years, but it was only to get close to you, to learn about your life. I had always wanted to steal it from you. And in a few more minutes, I will be doing just that...”

Cool


“Do you think our girlfriends are ever going to forgive us?” Mark asked.

“For stealing their bodies with that magic spell?” Hal replied, “Nope.”

“I suppose there’s a bright side.”

“What’s that?”

“If they don’t come over to forgive us or at least come over and talk to us; there’s no way to swap back with them. We’ll get to keep these bodies forever.”

“Forever?” Hal asked as the reality of being stuck in Andrea’s body for the rest of his life sunk in. His eyes went wide and he paused eating the yogurt he had been eating. He was frozen for about a minute before resuming and muttering, “Cool.”

Hot Tub Gender Changing Machine


Right after getting the hot tub in his backyard fixed, James was pretty eager to jump in. He took a few minutes to just sit back and relax. He hopped out shortly after, but he no longer felt relaxed. He looked down shocked; his body had completely changed. Instead of being a man, he was now a woman. The guy that repaired his hot tub must’ve turned it into some sort of hot tub gender changing machine. He thought about jumping right back in, but he realized it might be fun to spend a bit of time as a woman. After all, when would he ever get this opportunity ever again? It felt a little strange, but not nearly as much as he expected. He decided he’d spend the day like this and return to his hot tub in 24 hours.

Comfortable


People did their best to adapt to the results of the Great Shift in different ways. When Patrick first found himself inside the body of a woman, he tried to embrace his new feminine side by wearing dresses, heels, makeup, the whole nine yards.

It didn’t last long.

Eventually Patrick decided there was no real need to keep up the facade. He cut his hair short and often just put on an old t-shirt and shorts. After all, he was actually still a man, despite what body he may be in now. In all honesty, it was a lot more comfortable. He didn’t really mine being a woman if he didn’t actually have to act like a woman. And it seemed others were fine with it. In fact, one of the results of the Great Shift was that people were a lot more accepting about personal decisions.

Plan (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

“Okay, so, we need a plan,” Victoria breathed, “First, you should probably call in sick to my job tomorrow.”

“And you should call in sick to mine,” Gavin added.

“But you don’t get paid if you don’t show up; we need the money.”

“So, are you saying you think you can do my job, but I can’t do yours?”

“Gavin, come on, you work in a warehouse. All you need to do your job are muscles. And right now your muscles are mine. I’m a lawyer! I had to go to law school for years, pass the bar...”

“My job’s not as easy as you think!”

“Okay, okay...” Victoria sighed, not wanting to get caught up on petty things.

Plan


Gavin gasped when he realized what happened; Victoria screamed. The young couple couldn’t believe that they had swapped bodies with each other. They had been dating for a few months, and had only very recently moved in together. It had felt like a pretty big step, and it had brought them both closer to each other. But feeling close was one thing; swapping bodies was on a whole other level.

“But I -- what -- how?” Gavin was struggling to come up with words to express just how shocked he was.

“I dont know. I don’t know.” Victoria repeated, “But we need a plan. No one is going to believe us if we just start telling people that we switched bodies.”

“Okay, okay,” Gavin breathed, “Plan. Yes.”

No.


No. No, no, no, no, no. Steve was heading back to the lobby at the Exchange Island resort. He wasn’t going to spend his vacation in this body. No, they’d have to let him swap with someone else. He didn’t, by any stretch of the imagination, want to be a woman for two weeks. He guessed he knew it was always a possibility, and he even tried to go with the flow. But after spending about 45 minutes in this body, he knew it wasn’t for him.

Unfortunately, Steve could complain as much as he wanted, but there was little the staff could do for him. The body that you swapped with when you arrived on the island was the body you were stuck with until you left, and there wasn’t any possible thing anybody could do about that.

Steve wasn’t exactly satisfied with that answer. He yelled, he screamed. The staff even offered a full refund, but Steve kept insisting that money wasn’t the point. He just couldn’t do it; he couldn’t deal with being a woman. The manager finally had to pull Steve into her office to go over the fine print of the contract he signed. She told him that she knew he was upset, but the legal language was clear. When she still didn’t calm down, she finally snapped. She snarled that he only had to deal with being a woman for two weeks, while she had been stuck in the body of a woman since taking this job five years ago. She informed him that he just needed to suck it up or he could spend the two weeks in a special jail-like room that they had made in the basement for the worst of the worst guests.

Steve finally shut up.
