Out to Lunch (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Knowing he still had clients to impress, Jack quickly calmed down and headed back to his table. “Well, this is crazy,” he said with a laugh and a smile.

“What’s crazy?” His own body replied.

Jack paused and stopped laughing for a moment before continuing, “I mean, body swapping, come on! It’s so weird!”

The two clients at the table exchanged glances. “We seem to have swapped with each other,” one said.

“Is that what everyone was screaming about?” Jack’s body said flatly, “I guess I was lucky enough to not be affected.”

Jack’s smiled quickly turned stoneface.

Out to Lunch (Part 1)

It was just after noon when the Great Shift struck. Jack had just sat down for a business lunch with a client when he suddenly found himself standing back in the front of the restaurant. He soon realized he was cradling a few menus in his hand and was wearing...a dress? Upon realizing he was now int he body of the restaurant’s hostess, he let out a scream. It was soon followed by others...

Honest (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Javier was still happy that he was able to use the magic taxi to swap bodies with someone voluntarily. Still, as he walked the streets with his new body, he wondered what the woman now in the cabbie’s body had planned. She barely hesitated in giving up her own body upon finding out doing so would allow her to pick a body of her own to swap with.

He might find out soon enough. She had told him that she’d come find him once she made the swap. She, of course, knew where her own former body lived. And Javier was curious to know more about her beyond what he was going to learn actually being her...

After taking a ride in the cursed magic cab, Javier had his body stolen by the current driver of the taxi. After reading the journal, he knew that he too would have to steal someone else’s body. He felt rather bad about that and soon adopted a very different strategy from past drivers. He found the most eccentric people he could find and decided to be flat out honest with them.

Most didn’t believe him, a few practically jumped out as he told his story, but one rider finally seemed integed. Javier had picked up the woman wearing a puffy pink coat and gold pants and explained his story. Her jaw dropped when she finished.

“You mean that’s not your body? That you had your body stolen? And this cab can do that?” She asked.

“Uh-huh,” Replied Javier.

“So if you were to take my body, I could go on and do the same? I could get any body I wanted?”


“Let’s do it! This will be fun.” And so Javier pulled over, told the woman to “Have a nice day,” and he soon found himself in her body, giving a $50 to the driver’s body, and walking away...

Ryan had always been jealous of Bryant. The two had gone to school together, and Ryan was poor and a hard worker while Bryant was born rich and coasted through life. Long after graduation, Ryan continued to work hard, creating many inventions with little financial success. Meanwhile, Bryant simply inherited his family’s vast fortunes.

Ryan could never let that unfairness go. When he developed a body swapper, Ryan decided he now had a way to finally make things even, but he needed to be able to get closer to Bryant in order to swap bodies, and the two hadn’t talked in years.

And so Ryan called up Nadia, a former classmate that both he and Bryant still both talked to. He felt a little bad about stealing her body to use it as an intermediate, but he had little choice. After calling her over and taking her body, he called up Bryant to schedule a get together.

Bryant agreed to meet a few hours later at the marina. Ryan put on a tight purple dress and went over with a big smile on his face. He couldn’t wait to not only swap bodies with Bryant, but leave Bryant stuck in Nadia’s body for a while.

One Very Specific Purpose

“I’ll be glad when this is finally over. How many more flights do we have to work? Two? Three? I’m not sure my ears can handle the pressure change again,” Isaac complained.

“Tell me about it!” Henry agreed, “These heels are killing my feet! I can’t believe the punishment for smoking in the lavatory is switching bodies with stewardess and having to work a fourteen hour day.”

“I still can’t believe they have the ability to swap bodies!”

“I know! Where has that technology been hiding? And it seems weird to use it for this one, very specific purpose...”

Life Saving

Conor hadn’t remembered falling asleep, but he awoke in a beautiful vacation house. His awe was short lived as he stood up and noticed he now wore a bikini and a pearl necklace...what was even weirder was that he now had a body to fit those things! He walked to a balcony overlooking some trees and the beach. He turned with a worried look on his face when he heard a voice.

“I see you’ve awakened,” Conor was a little surprised to see the CEO of the company he worked for standing there. The man continued, “You’re probably confused right now. Allow me to explain. My wife was dying. The only way to save her was to transplant her brain out of her body using a procedure my company developed. I checked the company’s medical records, and you were the only compatable employee.”

It was a lot for Conor to take in. He took a deep breath before he spoke, “You violated my privacy and stuck my brain inside the body of your dying trophy wife?”

“You don’t understand -- ”

“How long do I have to live?”

“You aren’t going to die, Mr. Lieder. With a healthy brain, her body will be fine; and with a healthy brain, her body will be fine. You will be fine. This is a cure for her! And you should consider yourself lucky to have her amazing body! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go comfort my wife in the other room, who now has to deal with being in the body of a middle aged man!”
