Step Up (Part 1)

Tim stood up and went to look at the mirror in his room and smiled. He didn’t exactly feel like smiling, but he knew he had to practice. After all, the doctors would be sending him home tomorrow, and he needed to learn to keep up appearances. He had come into the hospital after a horrible car accident. He more than remembered getting into the accident while driving with his stepmother, and he even more clearly remembered waking up in her body!

The doctors quickly tried to calm him. They told him that he was, in fact, fine. Tim angrily gestured to his body to indicate he was not fine. The doctors shook their heads. Tim was, in fact, only knocked out with a few cuts and scrapes, but his stepmom was in poor shape. A piece of glass had pierced her brain, and the doctors were able to heal it using experimental procedures. Those procedures needed a second subject’s brain to help heal the damaged parts. With Tim’s being the closet brain available, the doctors went with it. Tim was hooked up to a machine and the doctors went to work.

Unfortunately, the damaged portion of his stepmom’s brain was largely responsible for the sense of self (personality, memories, and such). As a result, the procedure essentially created a second Tim. One was still in his original body while the other was now in the body of his stepmother!

When the body swapping service first started up, Malcolm nearly balked at the first. It was a couple hundred dollars just to submit his own photo and obtain the catalog of others he could swap with. It took several weeks to arrive in the mail -- a thick, phonebook-like glossy filled with people’s faces and a few scant details. He nervously filled out a form where he made his picks ordered from one to ten, then he wrote in his bank information knowing he’d soon be around a hundred thousand dollars poorer. He told himself it would be worth it when he finally was able to achieve his long time dream of swapping bodies with a woman.

Details arrived back some time later with instructions about when and where to go for the swap. He was also advised that he’d be swapping with number six on his list, Emily. He looked back to the catalog to see a pretty smiling face he had selected. Now he just needed to wait.

Arriving at the lab on the scheduled day, Malcolm was giddy. He was given some instructions before being put under. He had wonderful dreams about the body he’d be waking up with.

His eyes fluttered open some time later, and he was shown a mirror. He smiled as he recognized the pretty reflection looking back at him. He was now in Emily’s body! But something didn’t quite feel right. In a word, he felt...heavy. Looking down, he realized that Emily’s body was bigger than he anticipated from her head shot. A part of him felt disappointed; another part of him felt cheated. He thought about protesting, but he knew the documents he had signed were air-tight. He was going to be stuck in body until he could pay up enough to try again. As he left the lab and headed back home, he just sighed, thinking he’d make the most of it. After all, he was still going to get to experience being a woman!

Never Hear the End of It

Allen was pretty upset when he saw Marilyn enter. There she was with his body wearing full makeup.

“What are you doing!?” He screamed, “I get made fun of enough as it is. If anyone saw my body like that, I’ll never hear the end of it when we finally swap back.”

“IF we ever swap back,” Marilyn corrected, “And speaking of appearances, have you looked in a mirror? You’ve made me look a dork every single day!”

“I’m at least trying here! Being a woman is hard! I’m sorry if I can’t balance on your heels, match your outfits probably, or stuff like that!”

“You could at least put in my contact lenses!”

Ted picked himself up off the floor. There was something wrong with his body -- really wrong -- in fact, it wasn’t his body at all. He tried to think about what happened to him just before the collapse. He had been playing pool; he lost. He had placed a bet just before hand. What was it? Oh, yeah, anything she wanted. He couldn’t imagine that what she wanted was his body. It seemed impossible. Yet, here he was. He was now her. He could only assume she had run off with his body. He didn’t want to think about it. Of course, he didn’t want to think about what was right in front of him now either.

Accomplishment (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Ronald guessed he’d have to adjust to being a woman for the time being. After all, it would probably be weeks before he’d be able to perfect his device to a point where he’d be able to transfer his consciousness back into his own body. Though, to be honest, he didn’t really care. He had just made a machine that could change the world! He smiled smugly, feeling quite proud of himself.

Ronald celebrated with intense joy. His invention was a complete success. He managed to beam his consciousness into a completely different body miles away. Of course, due to the distance and the fact that he was still testing, he wasn’t quite able to aim for anyone in particular. As a result, he found himself in the body of a woman. But he didn’t care. He was just overjoyed with the fact that his invention actually worked. Sure, he’d also have to figure out a way to get back to is own body, but he could work on that later. For now, he was satisfied with his accomplishments.

“Yeah, yeah, I think I can deal with this,” Frank said as he put his foot up on the desk, “I mean, I think I can deal with being a chick for a few days. I mean, how hard can it be? Plus, we’re going to reverse this whole thing soon enough.”

Sally smiled at Frank’s arrogance. Her monthly cramps would be starting soon, and she couldn’t wait to see how he’d cope with them. He was sitting with a smug look on his face now, but she was sure he’d be curled up in pain in just a few hours. Then he’d finally admit just how hard it is to be a woman in this world.
