Compatible Donor

Brad looked down at the person in the hospital bed with a sense of trepidation. He turned to the doctor and spoke, “She’s older than I would’ve expected. And I’m still not wild about the fact that it’s a woman.”

Doctor Schwartz looked Brad right in the eyes, “We don’t exactly have a wide variety of brain dead patients. There are even fewer who have relatives to sign off on experimental procedures. And she is literally the only one who is a compatible donor.”

“I understand. It’s just weird. To think that I’ll go into surgery as myself, and yet wake up...as her. I’m just not sure I’m ready.”

“You know if you pull out, you’ll likely be dead in a week. And even if you merely hesitate, there’s no guarantee her body will stay alive in the state it is in. We need to act now to save your life.”

“I know. I know. I thank you. I thank you for showing me. I needed to see beforehand. I needed to know. But I’m ready now. When I wake up. I will be her. I will be Maria Cuervas. That will be my body. It’s still weird, but I don’t have a choice.”

Becoming a Hero (Part 2)

View Part 1 of Becoming a Hero.

There was just one small problem: Matthew couldn’t figure out how to turn back into himself! By the time he returned home, the alien was long gone. He was happy to be a superhero, but it seemed he was going to be stuck as a woman now for good.

He adopted the name Mattea, forged some documents, and tried to be as unassuming as possible. He took a job at a library and blended into the woodwork.

For a while, he donned his superhero persona every night, but he often resorted to going after petty thieves and minor criminals. After stopping a deadly monster attack, it all felt like sort of alet down. And, so, as time passed, the superhero persona came out less and less. He still had all the strength and powers, but he just didn’t use them. For the most part,he was just Mattea now.

Please!

It took only a moment after the Great Shift for Trent to realize something was wrong. He was still in the supermarket, but now he was in a completely different aisle. The changes to his body were even more obvious, and he wanted none of it.

He rushed as quickly as he could back to the aisle he had been in. It wasn’t easy due to the fact that he now had heels on his feet. He had tears in his eyes as he got down on his knees to beg.“Please! I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but give me my body back! Please!” He pleaded.

“I...I don’t know how,” His own body stammered, “This isn’t my fault! I didn’t do this. I think...I think we may be stuck like this.”

“No. I can’t. I can’t be stuck like this. I can’t be a woman! No way! Please!”

At the Shop (Part 2)

View Part 1 of At the Shop.

Theo eventually found the source of the screams, a young woman in a wedding dress, who quickly explained (of course) that she wasn’t a woman.

“My name’s Aaron.” The woman explained, “With an A...like the guy’s name. Not Erin. I need to find my body! I need to get out of here.”

“No,” Theo replied, “You need to find the outfit that woman came in here wearing. If we swapped bodies, we probably aren’t the only ones. It’s going to be chaos out there; the last thing you want to be stuck wearing as all this is figured out is some sort of uncomfortable wedding gown. This seems to be some sort of dress shop, so she was probably just trying it on or getting it fitted. She’s got to have more reasonable clothes around here somewhere.”

“I guess...I guess you are right,” Aaron replied, “Are you some sort of wise, old Asian lady here to guide me through all this?”

“I’m swapped into this body just like you’re swapped into that one. I’m not really old or Asian. Plus, that expectation seemed...well...sorta racist? Don’t you think?”

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Elliot couldn’t even react after watching Julie tear up her plane ticket and leave the airport. He had swapped bodies with Julie when they first arrived on Exchange Island. While he knew that new experiences were the entire premise of the resort, he still found being stuck in a woman’s body far more challenging than he anticipated. He had brefriended Julie a few days into the trip, and she seemed to be struggling just as much with his body. However, it was all over now. They were the airport. They were supposed to get on that plane, swap back, and fly home. But if she wasn’t there, what would happen? Would they not allow him on the plane? Would they force her back here? What if they allowed him to leave, and he ended up stuck in her body? And, of course, he wondered why she ripped up her ticket and left in the first place. Had she just pretended to be unhappy? He didn’t want to be stuck in Julie’s body -- not here on Exchange Island and not back home. But what was he going to do now if she wouldn’t leave?
