Try


Roger began to wonder why he was reading all these books looking for a reversal spell. It had been three weeks since he swapped with Elaine, and he still hadn’t found anything. On top of that, he hadn’t exactly minded the time he had spent in her body so far. In fact, he was actually really enjoying being yet. Why was he bothering to look so hard? Then again, he did promise her that he’d try to find a way to swap back, but how much was considered a “try?” Surely, these back-to-back weeks spent reading so many books fulfilled that obligation.

The Case


The contents of the case were of the utmost importance, and Sergio’s orders as an undercover agent were explicit. He knew he was just one link in the chain to deliver the case to it’s ultimate destination, and as he sat on the plane looking at the small device in his hand, he knew the sacrifices he was going to make to deliver it. When the plane landed and he departed the aircraft, he left the case behind under the seat. He shook the hand of one of the flight attendants, making sure the device was concealed on his hand during the shake. He ran from the secure area as fast as he could before the device activated. Suddenly, he was back on the plane. He had swapped bodies with the flight attendant as they were cleaning the plane. He secured the case and told the rest of the crew that he was bringing it to lost and found. At first, he was regretting having to swap with a female flight attendant. He felt the heels were slowing him down and the weight on his chest was distracting. However, after handing off the case to another agent swapped with a flight attendant, Sergio took a moment to appreciate his new body. He knew he didn’t have much time to linger; he’d be swapping back to his own body any minute. He had been on what seemed like countless missions that involved a brief body swap, but this was the first time he had actually swapped with a woman. If only there was a way to prevent the swap back. He looked down at his hand. Maybe there was? If he was able to remove the microscopic device quickly enough, maybe it wouldn’t trigger the swap back, but how to find it in time?

Bruises


Max hadn’t expected being a woman would be so difficult. In fact, when he first swapped bodies with Ambrosia, he had told her that he was going to keep up with wearing dresses, perfume, makeup...the whole nine yards. She tried telling him that he didn’t have to; that he could let some of it slide. But he wasn’t hearing any of it. Of course, it didn’t take him long to regret his promise.

He discovered that it now took him a lot longer to get ready. If he sat the wrong way or the breeze blew too hard, people would see things he didn’t want them to. But worst of all were the heels. It seemed he couldn’t keep his balance in them no matter how hard he tried. He probably felt on his butt at least three times a day. If he was able to ever swap back wth Ambrosia, he was going to feel pretty bad about all the bruises he was leaving on her body!

Matched


When she saw Eric, Amber immediately rolled her eyes. Their bodies had only been swapped for a little while, but she was already frustrated about how he was treating her body.

“You couldn’t even be bothered to pick two boots that matched when you left the house?” She lectured him.

“Hey!” Eric protested, “You have an entire CLOSET filled with shoes! I was lucky enough to find one that fit the right foot and one that fit the left foot. How do you keep track of all those shoes?”

“It’s called being a woman. And you’re going to have to start doing a LOT better at it.”

“Hey, I’m trying! I really am! Look, they’re selling shoes here and I’m actually trying to buy one that matches. It seemed like a good idea.”

“You’re just making me look like an idiot...” Amber grumbled.

Predicament


The little remote had come in his mailbox just two days ago with no return address and no instructions. Zach had taken it out and experimented with it. It didn’t take him long to figure out that the small device could literally do just about anything. He could point it at two people and swap just about anything. It started pretty realistically. He swapped people’s outfits. But he soon discovered the remote was far more powerful when he swapped two people’s heads. It got more outlandish when he found out the parts didn’t need to be the same. It could be an arm for a leg or a head for a butt. As he laughed at all his changes, he failed to notice one big one. He had actually managed to completely swap his own body with that of a woman. While he was laughing at everyone else, he was completely clueless about his own predicament.

Overdue


Mike sighed. It was over four weeks ago now that weird librarian had stolen his body. It didn’t take him long to deduce that she had done so with information she had found in a book. He had begun digging through every single one in the catalog. Before any of then were checked out and as soon as any were returned, he’d double check all those. It was pretty grueling. As he scanned the final book in the collection, he had still come up with nothing. Then it dawned on him. The solution wasn’t in any of the books on the shelf, or among those that had been returned. The book with the answers must be checked out and overdue. He’d need to go to the computers and do some research, but he was sure he could find the answers to get his body back.

PLEASE!


“Okay, Hank,” Jenny explained, “I’m going to take the tape off your mouth, but you need to promise not to scream when I do so.”

Of course, as soon as Jenny removed the tape, Hank screamed. She quickly replaced the tape.

Jenny sighed, “I know you think this whole body swap thing is my fault, but I promise you it’s not. I didn’t do anything. I’m just as lost as you are. However, when you started screaming and yelling and making me look like some sort of weirdo, I had to do something. Hence the ropes on your hands and tape on your mouth. Now, will you PLEASE calm down so that we can talk about this calmly? So that we can figure out what to do next.”

Hank nodded. Jenny was a little hesitant to remove the tape from his mouth again. She did so slowly, but of course, once again, he simply started to scream for help.

Jenny had no choice. She put the tape back on again.
