Wifely Duties

“Look, Mikey, you were the one that found that odd game in the attic and insisted we all play it,” Trevor argued, “We all experienced some pretty strange transformations while playing. I get that you and Marilyn ended up losing and got stuck swapped into each other’s bodies. But you still look like Marilyn -- like my wife -- and I’m thinking you still gotta do her wifely duties.”

“Wifely duties?” Mike asked without even turning around, “What the hell does that even mean, Trevor? I know it’s hard for you to get it through your pig-headed skull, but women are people. They don’t just have to do whatever men say or even what their husbands say. I doubt Marilyn put up with this sort of crap from you -- and even if she did -- don’t expect me to put up with anything like that. If you even think about muttering the phrase ‘wifely duties’ again, I’m going to punch you so hard that you won’t wake up for a week.”

Click here for Part 5.
After about a year, Jacob had settled into life as Evelyn. He actually enjoyed being a wealthy socialite, single mom with a college aged daughter. He could spend most of his days attending parties or on the couch with a glass of wine (or several). The only time he ever thought of his old life was when Emma would come to visit -- which she didn’t do much anymore. When she did visit, Emma would mostly keep to herself or roll her eyes. In a lot of ways, she would treat Jacob how she used to treat her mother. The truth of it though was that Emma was still looking for her mother and Jacob’s original body. She was mad because she felt like he just gave up; she only stayed in touch in the hopes that she would be able to get her mother back one day and return then to normal.

The next few days went well. Emma taught Jacob things about being a woman and about being her mom. Jacob was a little apprehensive, but he knew he needed to pretend to be Evelyn as much as possible, so he went along with it. At the same time, Emma was clearly working her ass off in an attempt to find a solution. Jacob would get quite a few texts a day about something he found online or something she read in the library. Most of what she found was often garbage, but an old book she got from the library seemed to be their best lead. There was only one problem: they needed both bodies to be present to restore them to their original bodies. However, neither had seen Jacob’s body since it since the swap.

Emma hadn’t really thought about it, because she had been seeing or hearing her mom’s face or voice every day; it never dawned on her that her actual mom was missing. Jacob had just been so concerned with getting his own body back that he hadn’t thought about where his own body was. Now the search was on for Jacob’s body, which they could only guess had Evelyn’s mind inside of it...

Jacob knew that whatever came next wasn’t going to be easy, but he was thankful he was able to tell Emma and would have her help going forward. For starters, just knowing whose body he was now in was going to make it easier. He knew his name was Evelyn; he knew where he lived. When he embraced Emma, he felt comforted and warm; probably the best he had felt since swapping bodies with Emma’s mom. It wasn’t the same feeling he had when he hugged Emma with his own body, but he chalked that up to Evelyn’s hormones or whatever. But then he began to worry about what sort of effect those hormones would have on him in the long run if he stayed in this body. He hoped that he and Emma could find a way to fix this all soon.

Jacob had no idea what he was going to say to Emma to explain who he really was. Finally, he just went over to her and whispered, “Emma, it’s me.”

Emma looked puzzled before responding, “Stop joking, Mom. I know you have this mistaken impression that I think I’m too cool to be seen with my own mother, but I actually like being here for you.”

“Mom?” Jacob’s face went blank, “You mean I’m...?”

The realization came across Jacob. He hadn’t just swapped bodies with a woman; he swapped bodies with his girlfriend’s mom! It took him a few more minutes to stutter out the truth about who he was; it took even longer for him to convince Emma that he was telling the truth.

Who (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Jacob bravely opened the door. The room wasn’t quite as crowded as he had expected, but it was full of commotion. He wondered for a moment if others had swapped bodies as well, but it mostly seemed like the talk was limited to typical party conversation. There were all sorts of photographers and Jacob swore he saw a famous model or two. But the one person he definitely saw was his girlfriend, Emma, and he was intensely grateful to see her. He could explain his situation; how he found himself in this body. Maybe she could figure out a way to help him. They could work together. He just need to explain to her who he really was...

Who (Part 1)

Jacob sat on the couch in the small room thinking. He wondered how he got here; he wondered whose body he was in. He didn’t know how any of this happened. One moment he was studying for his upcoming finals in for his freshman year of college, and the next he was in this room -- in someone else’s body -- a woman’s body! He could hear a crowd behind the room’s only door. Maybe someone in there had answers, but he was more than a little nervous to be seen like this. Then again, what choice did he have?

Reception

When Claire and Adam got married, the wedding was beautiful, but the reception was ruined when The Great Shift struck halfway through. Ted ended up in Claire’s body, his own daughter’s body! And it seemed everyone was looking to him for advice.

“According to what a few of you have been telling me,” He addressed the group, “The news is saying this is widespread, worldwide. Fortunately, we’re not the only ones stuck in the wrong bodies. But we also need to look out for each other. We need to account for everyone who is supposed to be here. I know Adam, who is now in the body of the flower girl Anna, is making a list of all the guests and keeping track of who is who. The person I’m most worried about is Claire. Obviously, I am in her body, but she doesn’t seem to be here among the guests anymore. She does know where to find us, so I hope she thinks to come here and meet us if she can.”

Ted then stepped aside and took a deep breath. This was certainly the last thing he wanted to worry about today, and he certainly didn’t feel comfortable being in his own daughter’s body. He had to stay strong for the sake of everyone else, but it was anything but easy!

Fair Trade

On paper, it seemed like a fair trade. Joe was working a low wage job in rural West Virginia when he agreed to an experiment to swap bodies with someone halfway around the work with a similar net worth. He was a little skeptical about signing up, but the incentives made it more than worth it. The details about who he was going to swap with were kept vague even leading up to the point where he was escorted into a chamber designed to facilitate the swap across the long distance. When he finally found himself in the new body, he was shocked to discover he was now a woman! And then he started to learn more details. She was a princess of a country with a very low GDP. Even his meager means made him one of the richest people here; it seemed inconceivable, but he quickly grew to love his power and relative riches. It took him no time at all to decide he didn’t want to ever swap back. Even if her net worth was equal to his, this country was so poor that his money went extremely far. It didn’t seem like a fair trade at all!

Vacation

After a long twelve hour flight, Eric was very ready to start his vacation on Exchange Island. Unfortunately, instead of swapping with another guest on the plane; he swapped with the stewardess. This body didn’t have enough luggage for a two week trip and didn’t have a room reserved at the resort either. But it got worse, because it turned out Eric wouldn’t even be able to use that room even if she had. Seeing as he swapped with the stewardess, he was expected to make another trip to the mainland with this body and then come back once again to Exchange Island. It was another twenty four hours in the air before Eric would finally be able to relax, and this time he’d have to make the flight while serving drinks and giving a lecture on safety features. He tried to complain, but it was listed in the possibilities of the contract he signed when he booked the trip. All he wanted to do was start his vacation, and instead he just got a lot more work!

Trouble

“Do you know where your brother went, Miss Nguyen?” The police asked.

“No,” Tuan lied, “He left a few days ago. He didn’t tell me where he was going. Is he is trouble?”

“It seems that way,” The officer replied.

Of course, Tuan knew exactly what trouble he had caused. The money he had stolen was secure, and he was sure the police would never find it. Of course, it was obvious that he was the one who stole the money, and he needed to hide. That was where the second part of his plan came in. He had a medallion that allowed him to transform his body with merely a piece of clothing. He hadn’t planned on being a woman, but the police had responded so fast. The dress was the first thing he could get his hands on. After the transformation was complete, he put the dress on, and answered the door. He pretended he was his own sister, and so far the police seemed to be buying the whole thing...

Regulations

After the body swapper was invented, many countries put heavy restrictions on their use. James hoped he’d avoid those laws by visiting a small island nation it the Pacific. He offered a local woman a relatively low price of $50 to swap with her for 24 hours. She eagerly accepted. After a day, he returned to the hotel and waited for her in the lobby. When she finally arrived, he smiled and asked if she was ready to swap back now.

The woman in his body pretended to be confused, “I have no idea what you are talking about? Do I know you?”

James’s smile turned into a frown. Suddenly he realized those regulations might have some benefit. As right now, he was likely going to be stuck in this woman’s body from here on out...

To the Vet

Candice didn’t know what was going on. She was locked in some sort of cage. She felt small, as the cage seemed to fit on the passenger seat of a car. The weirdest thing though was that her own body appeared to be the one driving. She tried to protest, but couldn’t seem to make any sounds that even sounded remotely human. Once the car finally stopped, Candice watched her body turn to her and smile.

“Relax, Candice,” Her body said, “It will be okay. I’m taking you in get neutered and you should calm down after we’re done.”

Did Candice hear that right? Neutered? What was going on here?

Almost on cue, Candice’s body seemed to answer that question, “I invented a body swapper and decided I wanted to steal your body. I thought about sticking you with my fat, old body, but doing so would still give you the capacity to activate my machine and swap us back, so I swapped you with my cat instead; he’s now running around in my body. You never noticed me as your neighbor, the quiet and awkward George Livoski. You never talked to me, never said ‘hi’ in response to my shy waves. And now you’re a cat. And if you’re not good, you’ll soon be a stray cat. Now, let’s get you neutered and declawed.”

The Heist

“We transfered the money out these broads’ accounts three days ago; why are we still in their bodies?” Vince insisted, “You said this plan couldn’t fail.”

“Technically it hasn’t failed yet,” Charles informed his two impatient colleagues, “We used that machine to steal their bodies and drain the bank accounts of their rich husbands into our own. We had no idea they would escape with our bodies. All we need to do is find them and swap back.”

“But they could be anywhere!” Hank interjected, “And this woman’s husband is frisky! I can only pretend I’m on the rag for so long.”

“Look, they probably want our bodies back even more than we do. We just need to wait them out. They’ll come to us.”

While Charles talked a good game, he was actually lying to his heist partners. Stealing the money was a red herring; his plan all along was to steal Ling’s body. If that meant sticking Vince and Hank in Amanda and Carol’s bodies, so be it. In fact, their original bodies hadn’t even run away, Charles had killed them to ensure he’d never have to swap back to his own body. He just needed to keep up this ruse with these two a little while longer.

Wandering Eye

The visit to the pool seemed innocent enough. Jason was expecting a rather average day with his girlfriend. He wasn’t sure what warranted it, but she suddenly slapped him across the face.

“What was that for?” Realizing his voice seemed strange, a concerned Jason added, “What did you do to me?”

His girlfriend smiled, “Look down.”

Sure enough, Jason looked down to see he was clearly a woman with two breasts peaking out of a one-piece swimsuit.

“What the hell?” He asked.

“I saw your wandering eye. You wanted to stare at her more than me? now you can do so any time you want!”

“I wasn’t staring at anyone! I don’t know why you did this to me! Please just swap me back! I wasn’t looking at anyone; I swear!”

Taking the Case

Roger’s high intellect made him a great lawyer, but he certainly didn’t have the skills to be working in a nail salon. He was still trying to wrap his brain about how he swapped bodies with a manicurist. He had taken a pro bono case of a man claiming innocence in a murder. He explained to Roger that the real murderer had stolen his body, and he could prove it to Roger by telling him where the machine could be found. Roger trekked to a seedy part of town, and sure enough there was a large machine in the basement. But how would he know if this thing could switch bodies? As he began to examine it, the damned thing somehow went off, and he found himself in the body of one of the neighbors, a young woman who worked in a nail salon. Until he could figure out how to explain this whole body swapping thing and present the evidence to the court, he decided to pretend to be who he appeared to be. Of course, that meant doing a job that he had no idea how to do...

Used Body Salesman

On some days Paul wished body swappers were never invented. He was probably one of the best used body salesmen in the country, but he also really hated his job sometimes. Today was one of those days. He saw a few guys lurking around the showroom who seemed to not know what they wanted. Of course, Paul knew a sure fire strategy of how to convince them.

He went into the back and swapped himself into one of the bodies the store had for sale. Then he walked out onto the showroom floor to do a seductive dance. He had learned how to be very feminine for these types of occasions. The guys were drooling. Paul knew the exact type of body these creepy guys wanted; they were just too shy to admit it without some prodding. He announced into the microphone that the guys could bid on this body and sure enough they did.

Paul knew that sort of performance netted him three times as much as more traditional sales, but he always hated doing them. He hated being in a woman’s body -- even if for only a short time -- and he hated acting all sexy. But it sure was able to move his inventory of used bodies!

The Spot (Part 3)

Click here for Part 2.
Over the next few hours, more information filed John’s brain. His body lived nearby, and he couldn’t help but wonder if she had somehow known what would happen up there, as if it was a way out of this place. He thought about going back up to the spot, but when he tried he seemed unable to do so. He wondered if he could try again at some point. He might try every week. In the meantime, he was going to have to adapt to this body and to this life. The memories that continued to fill his head ensured he was going to live this life, but still none of them made him comfortable in this new skin...

The Spot (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
As John neared where his car was parked, another group of people started making their way down the path toward the hill. He wanted to shout out and warn them not to go, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. At the same time, a few important memories popped into his head. He knew he shouldn’t go back to his own car, but instead to the car that belonged to this woman. He was getting just enough in his mind to live her life, but certainly not enough to be comfortable. In fact, he felt quite awkward in her body. His hips seemed to sway without any effort; even walking felt weird. All the clothes on his body felt too tight. And then there was his butt. He felt like he was going to bump into someone with it. It felt so big and bubbly! He wasn’t sure if he was ever going to get used to any of this!

The Spot (Part 1)

The locals would warn tourists not to visit, but it almost seemed like all that warning just drew people there even more. John had heard about that the spot would have a profound efect on a person but details were vague; previous visitors could only explain that it was magical and part of the magic made you unable to tell anyone what happened there. They shared the locals view that the place should be avoided; John didn’t listen.

It was just off the road. You parked on the side and walked up a small hill. John’s heart raced as he climbed, wondering what would happen at the top. He wasn’t alone. Several other people ignored all warning to figure out the mysterious spot. And when he reached the top, a strange flash of light engulfed them all.

A few seconds later, he found himself looking at his own face. Looking down, he saw he now had the body of a voluptuous woman.

His former body spoke first, “What happened?”

John replied, “We just --”

He knew they had swapped bodies, but he couldn’t say it. The words just couldn’t leave his lips. Sure enough, if he tried to warn anyone else, he’d be unable to explain what happened.

#Winning (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Lily then tricked two more of Miles’s friends over to complete her five member squad. She forced them to train for hours. When the tournament came, they achieved a perfect score, earning first place. It seemed the plan worked, except when it came time to get everyone back to normal, the device didn’t work.

“Lily used an untested device I created,” Miles explained to everyone, “There were still flaws to be worked out. I’m going to try to fix it, but I’ve got to be honest with everyone when I say I’m not sure I can. Much like we all have Lily’s muscle memory, we also have her mental capacity. I’m just not sure her brain holds as much as mine does; I feel like I’m losing my genius.”

“Hey!” Lily interjected, “Don’t make me sound like an idiot! Besides, I’ve been nice enough to let you wear some of my clothes. Don’t I get any credit for being a nice person here?”

The four boys around her responded with silence.

#Winning

When Lily became head cheerleader, she didn’t exactly treat the other girls with much respect. In fact, it wasn’t long before all the members became fed up with her and quit. With an upcming tournament, Lily became desperate. While she usually tuned her nerdy brother Miles out, a recent comment about an invention he had been working on in their basement had caught her ear. She swipped the device and used it on her brother and his two equally nerdy friends who were visiting.

She smiled at the result. The device worked exactly as her brother described and turned him and his two friends into copies of Lily. The only thing they each retained from their own bodies was their glasses. Miles put his hands on his hips. He knew his sister used his device without his permission.

“Look, Boys,” She demanded, “If you want your own bodies back, you are going to help me win my upcoming tournament. If I remember my brother’s description, you should have my muscle memory and my athleticism. A bit of training from me and you should be up to speed.” Miles knew his sister was serious, which meant he had to reluctantly go along with this. Meanwhile, his two friends had both secretly thought Lily was pretty hot. They didn’t quite care what the plan was, they were just happy to be able to explore her body a little closer -- even this close!

Hacked

James was the head of IT security at his company. He had been noticing a few attacks on the servers from Chinese hackers over the past few days. He thought he could outsmart them by posing as another hacker to learn their secrets. He went home and logged onto his laptop. It started out so well; they seemed so trusting at first, showing him much of what he needed to lock them out for good. That is until a message showed up on his screen reading, “You want to pretend to be one of us? We will make you Chinese! We will make you our bitch!”

James didn’t know exactly what that meant. It seemed sort of cryptic until his body started to transform. Despite the pain of his shifting body, he tried to logout, hit cancel or undo, but it was all for naught. In minutes he had been transformed into a Chinese woman. The hackers had been quite honest in their threats and despite being a woman now, James had to admit that he was very impressed with their tech and what they did...

A Promise

The Great Shift was fairly devastating for Kevin at first. He found himself in a body that was nearly twice his own age, and he was depressed to be over fifty years old. He grumbled for a few days as he searched for his girlfriend to find that she was now over three times her own age and in the body of a man in his eighties. She knew her days would be short, and she made sure to have him promise that he’d live his life to its fullest.

It sobered Kevin up. He no longer wallowed in self-pity, and he made sure he kept his new body in the best shape it could be in. He jogged every day and ate right. It sure sucked to lose a few decades of life, but he knew it could be worse. He owed it to his girlfriend to make the most of what he had, because she had even less.

Second Time's a Charm

Ethan was pretty excited to be taking a taxi today. Of course that was because he knew exactly what was special about this particular taxi -- it was magic! He had been the driver of this taxi about a month ago, right after the previous driver had used the magic of the taxi to steal his body. And in turn, he proceeded to steal the young woman’s body he currently possessed. It was a bit of an accident on his part. He hadn’t intended to swap with her; he hated being a woman. But now he was going to have a second chance.

He faked getting a phone call and started talking very loud about “daddy’s money” and the “big inheritance” he should be receiving any day when “daddy kicks the bucket.” It was all a lie, of course, but he wanted to seem rich, spoiled, and undeserving. He wanted to make this body desirable but also unworthy -- in essence, a perfect target for any good natured driver of this magic taxi. Heck, it’d even work for any bad-natured driver also.

But the ride came and went and Ethan arrived safely at his destination without swapping once again into the body of the taxi’s driver. There was no “Have a nice day,” no $50 tip. He just stood on the curb wondering what he did wrong, and it he would get a third shot at riding in the magic taxi.

Evelyn

The Great Shift hadn’t been easy for Jason. He was having a hard time adjusting to the fact that he was now a woman. It wasn’t long before he turned to a hypnotist for a rather extreme solution. He asked to be hypnotized, to be made to believe that he had always been a woman. And sure enough, the hypnotist put Jason under and began to implant suggestions that he had always been a woman into his head. She told him about various memories he should have of growing up female, first dates, fashion, she even gave him a new name: Evelyn. Soon his body began to relax, and instead of squirming in his skim, he seemed to be comfortable in it. When she finally awoke him, he was a little surprised she was there. He wondered who she was and what she was doing. She told him that she had simply been hired to help relax him, and she wondered if it worked. Finally, she asked his name.

Jason looked puzzled. Surely, she knew after all this time together. Jason smiled and replied, “It’s Evelyn. How did you not know that?”

Emergency Landing (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
After enough time passed, Edward was fairly convinced this wasn’t all in his head. He somehow became a woman. As he sat on a rock and questioned to himself what was going on, a member of Exchange Island’s stagg came alone and identified him as a passenger of the plane that had just landed.

They explained the body swapping powers of the island. Next, Edward was told about plans to get everyone off the island. It was apparently going to be quite a challenge to coordinate not just a few extra people on each departing plane but also the extra swaps. That’s when the worst news hit for Edward. Based on the vacationer he swapped with, they wouldn’t be able to get him off the island for at least six weeks. He was going to stuck in this body for that entire time.

Emergency Landing

When the plane suddenly dropped in altitude and the oxygen masks came down, Edward was sure the transpacific flight he was on would surely be his last. Luckily, the plane stabilized and the pilot announced they were going in for an emergency landing. The unexpected stop was going to be at a place called Exchange Island, and when they landed things went from bad to weird.

Like everyone else on the plane, Edward swapped bodies with someone upon landing. He found himself on the beach in a woman’s body. He held his head, wondering if the landing had been a dream and this was all just in his head from a lack of oxygen -- or his brain going on a wild trip before he suffered a fiery death. But it all felt so real! Even the new weird on his chest and the feeling of the bikini strings on his skin.

Anything but Good

Nothing was going to stop Justin from attending the concert he had been looking forward to for months, not even his parents grounding him. He just needed to devise a plan for sneaking out that wouldn’t get him in any more trouble. In fact, if his parents checked in on him right now, they’d find his body sleeping in bed. That’s because he used a spell he found on the internet to steal the body of his older sister. He had waited until she had gone to sleep then cast the spell. He slipped into some clothes he had seen her go out in from time to time, and then snuck out of the house. If anyone was going to get into trouble tomorrow, it was going to be her! Thinking about that made Justin smile. She never got into trouble; for some reason their parents never seem to catch her doing any sort of bad thing. She wasn’t a goodie two shoes, but their parents sure thought she was. Luckily, tonight was about anything but being good!

All the Time

“Wow,” Mei said as she examined the nails of her latest customer, “You must get manicures all the time. Your nails are gorgeous.”

“Actually,” Sam said averting his eyes, “This is my first time in a nail salon.”

“Then you must take very good at home.”

“Not really, no. And believe me, if I told you why, you wouldn’t believe me.” Sam didn’t know how to explain that he wasn’t in his own body, that he had swapped bodies with his girlfriend, that he hadn’t actually ever stepped foot in a nail salon before, but his girlfriend had gone all the time. It was a practice she insisted he keep doing for as long as they were swapped. Maybe if he had to keep going back here, he’d explain it al, but he was honestly still haven’t a hard time wrapping his own head around it.

60

Andrew had been walking to the store when a burst of light engulfed his vision. The next thing he knew, he was behind the wheel of a car going 60MPH on the highway. He calmly and carefully pulled off the road with his heart racing. It took a moment or two of calming down before he realized he was not only in an unfamilar luxury car, but he was also in an unfamiliar body! He turned on the radio to hear all sorts of reports about something being called “The Great Shift.”

In some ways the reports were comforting; it was good to know he wasn’t crazy. In others they were disturbing; if literally billions of people were affected, it seemed very unlikely this would be reversed any time soon. That meant he was going to be stuck in this woman’s body for the foreseeable future. He had a lingering hope that maybe it was all some sort of elaborate dream that he’d wake up from at any second, but it all seemed far too real for that to be a possibility.

Options (Part 2)

Scott knew he was going to have to explain this to his wife, but what was he going to say. Fortunately, he had two days to figure it out. He sat and thought about a story he could tell her -- some mix of lies and the truth -- but he concentration was broke by sounds coming from the other room. It didn’t seem possible. She wasn’t supposed to be home yet, but who else would be in there making noise? His heart started to race faster. He knew he was going to have to come up with something, and he was going to have to come up with it quickly...

Options

Scott sat and the bed and thought about what he was going to do. He had used the Medallion of Zulu countless times when his wife went on business trips. He had been all sorts of people over the years. It had always gone off without a hitch, but he really screwed up this time. After turning himself into this woman, he ended up losing the medallion. He had always been so careful; how could he have lost it this time?

He thought about his options. He had already tried to locate the lost medallion, but it had been fruitless. He had searched every place he’d been; everywhere he could have left it. He could try to find another way to transform his body back to normal, but he had never even dreamed of such a thing before he obtained the medallion, and every sort of internet search just turned up pure fantasy. He could try to explain the situation to his wife, but even if he was completely truthful, it still sounded like a lie. Whatever option he went with, he only had two days before she got home. He needed to figure this out fast.

Surge

Harvey gritted his teeth as he looked at himself in the mirror. He had just built a device to swap bodies with people that now sat in his basement, but he certainly didn’t mean to swap bodies with anyone himself. In fact, he hadn’t even run a single test with the thing or even turned it on. It was just a power surge that cause an activation, resulting in his own mind to be zapped into the body of one of his neighbors. She had such a large chest that he couldn’t even understand how she stood up straight! It wasn’t going to be fun going back over to his own house and explaining what happened. Heck, he felt even weird going outside like this. But the one thing he knew was that he certainly couldn’t stay like this!

Is That an Option?

“I still can’t believe your sister and her friends didn’t mind you using that weird device of yours to let us swap bodies with them for the day,” Mark said turning to his friend Yan.

Yan smiled, “How could they possibly mind? They didn’t even know I was going to do it.”

Mark responded with silence, which was quickly broken by Jason bursting into laughter.

“I don’t think they’d ever give me permission. They’re probably all freaking out right now,” Yan added.

“They’re going to kill us when we get back to your place.”

“Doubtful. They’d never harm their own bodies, and we hold all the cards. If they try anything to our bodies, we can just keep these. In fact, hasn’t today been fun? Aren’t you guys hald tempted to keep these bodies regardless?”

“A little more than half!” Jason piped in.

“I mean, yeah, I guess. Is that an option?” Mark asked.

One on One Help

“Miss Carver? Uh, Miss Carver?”

Ryan still wasn’t used to being called by that name. It hadn’t even been a full day since he swapped bodies with his teacher, Miss Carver. So when he heard her name, he didn’t turn around right away.

“I was wondering if you could help me with something, Miss Carver?”

Finally, Ryan turned around. One of his classmates was there. He had faked his way through the lessons today with some notes Miss Carver had left for him, but he was pretty sure he wouldn’t be able to help anyone one on one. It also didn’t help that he could tell the student was clearly gazing at Ryan’s ass. Ryan knew he needed some excuse to get out of there, and he needed to swap back to his own body as soon as possible.

The Farm (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
As Jack wandered his land, he thought about how good this body felt. He was thinking of never going back to his own body, but then a voice called out.

“Excuse me, Ma’am,” The voice said.

Jack turned around sharply to see his neighbor standing there. “Yes?” Jack asked.

“Couldn’t help but notice you wandering around here. I know Jack’s not to fond of people trespassing.”

“I’m his, uh, cousin. Just visiting for a few days.”

“Well, he never told me he had such an attractive cousin. Would you mind terribly if I bought you dinner tonight.”

Jack wanted to roll his eyes. This was one aspect of being a woman he had no interest in. Plus, he’d have some trouble maintaining his legal assets with this body as well. He’d probably going to have to go back up to the shack sooner rather than later. Then again, one could only guess the limits of that tech up there, and he was ready to experiment with it...

The Farm

Jack had inherited the large farm after the death of his father a few years back. The bulk of the property was farmland with a ranch and a barn at the entrance. There was also a corner with a wooded area and a small shack. He had mostly ignored the woods, and his father’s will even had a cryptic cautionary note about going there, but eventually Jack’s curiosity got the best of him.

The small shack contained vast tech equipment, which was powered by a source Jack couldn’t figure out. He explored one computer and sifted through files with non-descript names eventually stumbling upon an image of a woman amongst them. Then he clicked enter and a bolt of electricity shot out of the machines. Jack was struck and felt pain like he had never known.

And then his body began to change.

Slowly, he transformed into the woman whose image he found on the computer. A new file appeared on the machine, which he guessed contained his image. Jack figured that meant he could turn himself back any time he wanted, so he ventured back out to his fields, curious as to experience being a woman for a while.

Several months passed, and Clifford still hadn’t swapped back to his own body. He guessed no one else from the elevator did either. While he stayed in touch at first, as he adapted to Amanda’s life, he began to see less and less need. He thought he’d have troubles with her job or being a woman, but he seemed to adapt quite easily to both. He certainly loved her paycheck -- it was much higher than his had been as a security guard. The hours were better too.

He did think back to the elevator sometimes. He would wonder just how such an unexplainable even occurred. But as he thought about his new life, he thought that maybe it was just the universe setting something right -- making things how they were truly meant to be. At least the way it seemed for him...

Once the elevator opened, they all knew they were going to be on their own. Clifford took a deep breath. From this moment on, he was Amanda. He placed on her jacket and scarf, took a quick lunch, and returned to the building. It was going to be a long day. He had hoped to be going home; instead he was back here for another few hours. Plus, he had to take on an unfamiliar job with a body that wasn’t his own. Amanda had told him to just hold his head up high, just sit behind her desk, and glide through the rest of the day. She made it sound so easy, but he was sure it wasn’t. Could he really just slide into her life so easily? And what would he say if someone noticed if something wasn’t quite right?

The moment after they all decided to assume the lives of the people they appeared to be, the elevator started moving again. Clifford sighed, “I guess we’re really doing this. I hope I can pull off being you, Amanda.”

“I hope so too.” She replied.

“It’s not going to be easy for any of us.” Armando added, “But hopefully whatever caused this to happen reverses itself soon enough.”

And so then the door opened in the lobby, and the four of them headed out...

Down (Part 3)

Figuring out who was who took a bit of time. Clifford found out that he was in the body of a woman named Amanda. Amanda was in the body of a man named Armando. Armando was in the older woman’s body, Laura. Laura was in Todd’s body, and Todd was in Clifford’s. If being in the wrong body wasn’t stressful enough for the small group, the realization that the elevator hadn’t moved an inch added to the stress.

There was a brief silence that Amanda finally broke, “It’s okay. We need to figure out a plan about what to do once we get to the lobby.”

“What do you mean?” Armando asked.

“She’s right,” Clifford interjected, “If we get down there and we tell people we’ve swapped bodies, they’ll think we’ve gone crazy. We’re going to have to pretend we are who we appear to be...”

Down (Part 2)

Soon enough, a man in the elevator began to point at Clifford and yell.

“Give it back!” The man demanded, “That’s MY body!”

Before Clifford could even defend himself, an older woman spoke up, “And you have MY body. I doubt that poor woman is just as much a victim here as you are.”

“We’ve all swaped bodies,” The other gentleman on the elevator spoke up, “And so she’s technicaly not a woman.”

Clifford finally found a moment to speak, “I’m not -- I’m not a woman, or at least I wasn’t until just a few seconds ago. Maybe we should get to the lobby and sort this out. Is the elevator even still going down?”

“I think it’s stuck...”

“...And so are we.”

Down (Part 1)

Clifford didn’t have too many complaints about his job as a security guard in a midtown office building. Sure, he had to show up in the morning at 4am, but he would leave for the day just as everyone else was heading out to lunch. At the end of his day, he’d do go up floor by floor to do a pass of the building and then head straight down the elevator, which often filled up with people heading out to eat.

But one day as he headed down with about half a dozen people with him in the elevator, the light began to flash between the sixth and fifth floors then the shaft began to shake. The next thing Clifford did was look down at his hands; they were pale and feminine. He was holding a purse. He had swapped bodies with a woman he had been riding the elevator with, and he couldn’t even begin to fathom how it happened.

The Next One

“Can’t you just relax, Carl?” Marie sighed, “It will all be over soon.”

Karl glared back at Marie and replied, “Over the past two days, I’ve slowly been swapping body parts with you thanks to some magic spell you cast. Right now, I have about 90% of your body, and it’s extemely uncomfortable and weird.”

“And the next thing will be our faces and shortly after will be our brains. Then we’ll both be back to normal. I hoped this experience would give you some appreciation of how difficult it is being me!”

“Except I haven’t been you, I’ve been some sort of half-you-half-me freak! Yeah, things like the hair and clothes weren’t easy, but I still wouldn’t know what it’s like to ‘be you.’”

Marie just rolled her eyes. She certainly never enjoy arguing with her boyfriend like this, but she knew once this spell had run its course, she’d just cast another to make him forget it. Then she could continue testing out all the strange spells on him from that book she found. Each one was crazier than the one before it. She couldn’t wait for the next one!

Within a few weeks Gilbert was back in control of the company he founded. Turning it around took a little longer. He was obviously behind on trends in tech, but he wasn’t deterred. After several painful cuts and an aggressive strategy, the company was profitable again. Gilbert’s new body was young and healthy enough for him to stay at the helm and assure its success for many years to come. And when the time came, he supposed his scientists could just place his brain in another body. After all, money was not as issue.

As soon as he was able, Gilbert started to meet with investors, the board, and the media. He needed to convince everyone he was who he claimed to be and that he could still lead this company despite being dead for forty years. It wasn’t an easy task, but being a smooth talking visionary was always something he excelled at. It wasn’t long before a vote was cast to reinstall him as CEO.

Once Gilbert started to overlook the fact of his new body, he began to look around at his company. As he underwent tests to ensure he was healthy in his new body, he noted how much smaller the staff was for this secret division. It was a trend he noticed throughout the company. He had build an empire and now that empire was struggling. He certainly hoped he could turn things around, but he had also been dead for forty years. Who knew where technology had gone in that time? Not to mention the fact that people may not view this new body of his as the rightful heir to take control of this company back.

Saving the Company

At the time of his death, Gilbert Bates was one of the richest men on the planet with a tech company valued in the billions. He had set up a secret division at his company to freeze his body and brain in order to be revived when a cure to the disease killing him was found.

Forty years later, Gilbert finally awoke. He was quite shocked to look at his hand to see it was slender and feminine.

“Allow me to explain,” The scientist who had revived Gilbert explained, “Your company is near bankruptcy; your children squandered your personal wealth. If I didn’t act, this division would’ve been shut with the rest of your company. We hadn’t perfected the technology to save your body, but we could save your mind by placing it in another body. It may not be ideal, but it’s good to have you back. We needed you back now or it would’ve been never, and we need you to save the company...”

The Ride

Josh hadn’t been driving the magic taxi for long. His body had just been stolen about an hour ago. He hadn’t even thought about the type of person he wanted to swap with; he’d been just picking up random fares. He was still wrapping his mind around the idea of swapping bodies. And then one woman got in the back. She seemed to be looking over her own body before she finally opened her mouth.

“I gotta tell you something crazy, man,” She told Josh, “You probably won’t even believe it, but I found this weird device that allows me to steal bodies. I took this chick’s body. I’m going to do all kinds of nasty things to it. I’m a guy with a woman’s body! This is going to be crazy!”

Josh didn’t like the sound of that, so he decided that this woman was going to be the person he would swap with. He just couldn’t let this guy get away with whatever he was planning to do. Plus, he might get access to this body swapping device he was talking about...
