I love you, Bro

Anthony and Brett had been best friends since kindergarten, but things had gotten a little weird ever since the Great Shift had switched Anthony into the body of Brett’s girlfriend Sarah. Anthony had hoped a friendly lunch would ease the tension. It was seemingly beginning to work until Brett pulled out a small box and placed it on the table.

“What’s that?” Anthony asked.

“Open it.” Brett responded.

Anthony hesitated before lifting up the lid, peeking inside, and slamming it down. “What the hell?” Anthony demanded.

“No, I’m serious.”

“A ring? A fucking ring? How many times do I have to tell you this. I may look like Sarah, but I’m not Sarah!”

“I know! I know you’re not Sarah. That’s exactly why I’m asking. Sarah was beautiful, but a bit of a pain. But now that you’re her. I mean, my best friend’s brain in her could I not want to marry you?”

Anthony sighed. He couldn’t believe he was having to do this. “Look, Brett, you’re my best friend. Yes, we’re best friends. We will always be best friends. Despite what I may look like, I’m still the guy who you would go to the bar with on Friday nights to pick up chicks. I still want that. I want chicks. I know some have been affected by the hormones of their new bodies, but Sarah’s really haven’t affected me. I’m a lesbian now. I guess I can also say this now: I love you, Bro....just not like this.”

Anthony slid the ring back over to Brett. Brett could only stare back at his friend with a terrible look of rejection.
