Get out of Jail Free (Part 3)

Vinny placed Kayla’s purse down on the bed of his hideout, a remote location lavishly furnished. He was sure no one would ever find him here. He could live a quiet live as Kayla Lee, surviving off his stashed fortune. Or he could use a portion of those funds to reignite his criminal empire. He could locate a few of his old associates and start again. In fact, with his former empire in ruins, the power vacuum would almost demand that someone step in. There was no reason he couldn’t simply replace himself, but did he still have it in him?

Get out of Jail Free (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
When Vinny saw the firm’s head partner open the door, he stood up. Instead of instantly shouting as he usually would, he waited patiently for the client to leave.

Then he finally spoke, “What the hell, Antonio? This is who you sent to spring me?”

“The police have a solid case against you, Vinny. My office didn’t exactly have a lot of volunteers to take the fall and do your time for you.”

“I paid you good money to get me out.”

“And you’re out, aren’t you? Look, I know more than a few guys who’d love to swap into Miss Lee’s body there, but we only had the one body swapper. The feds have really been cracking down on those things over the years. Unless we can find another one, you’re going to be Kayla Lee for a long time; if not forever! But be grateful you aren’t in prison, Vinny.”

Vinny sighed. If he still had his own body, he’d probably be pounding on Antonio with his fists right now, but he doubted Kayla’s body would be nearly as effective with physical persuasion. A part of him just now seemed averse to violence, but he couldn’t place why. For the time being, he just decided to head to the hideout he had set up. It was untraceable to him and loaded with luxuries just for this sort of situation.

Get Out of Jail Free (Part 1)

After many successful years of organized crime, Vinny’s empire was on collapse. The near fatal blow was when Vinny himself got arrested. Fortunately, he long ago bought an insurance policy for this sort of thing. He had paid a hefty sum to his lawyer’s office to have an attorney slip in with a hidden body swapper.

He waited in his jail cell for a long time before an unimposing Asian woman finally arrived.

“Aw, hell no,” He said upon seeing her.

“If you’re being offered a deal, you’ve be wise to take it,” She replied without offering specifics, both of them knowing full well not to speak about the plan in the prison walls.

Vinny ultimately nodded, and the woman initiated the swap. Vinny soon found himself in her body. He awkwardly adjusted the blue skirt suit.

“I’ll talk with the DA about your case,” He said, finding an excuse to leave the cell.

And it was that easy for Vinny to escape from prison. But he had to do something about this body. He went to his lawyer’s office. He wanted to storm into the door, but instead felt compelled to wait politely in the reception area. He twirled his now long hair with his fingers as he waited. He certainly didn’t feel very powerful with this new body -- certainly not like the mob boss that he knew he was, and that’s what truly worried him.

Martin smiled nervously as he stared at his own body. He was still processing what had happened. He had been swimming at the local pool when he banged heads with another swimmer. Luckily, neither were hurt or drowned, but after swimming back to the side, they were both shocked to find that they had swapped bodies. Oddly, while Martin hadn’t noticed a thing while swimming, he certainly had trouble with the balance of his new body on dry land -- suddenly having a woman’s body meant his weight was distributed differently -- and he used items around the pool to hold onto in order to get himself onto his feet. Neither he nor the woman he swapped with could explain how or why it happened, but now they both had to deal with it together...

After Angela begged Elliot to swap back bodies with her, a smug smile came across his face as his slid down into his chair at the cafe.

“So you expect me to return to the body swap clinic with you in order to return to our own bodies?” He laughed, “Forget about it! The whole argument about who had it harder, men or women? It was a ruse. I just needed to trick you into swapping bodies with me. Every since we swapped I have enjoyed each minute of being you, and I plan to keep enjoying it. I don’t have any plans to swap back with you...ever! This is my body now.”

Angela’s jaw dropped. She couldn’t believe Elliot would do this to her. He was her best friend. She had just had a simple argument where she claimed women had life so much harder than men, and when he disagreed, they had visited the body swap clinic for a quick swap. She never imagined how much she’d miss being a woman and decided to fold quickly. But now Elliot wasn’t going to swap back at all? She was on the verge of tears!

That's Rich

Evan shot a cold gaze across the room. He couldn’t believe he saw his old body standing there. It was seemingly impossible, but he obviously recognized it instantly. After he had used the Medallion of Zulu last year to steal Claire’s wealthy body, he had left her stuck in his poor, penniless body. There was no way she should be able to afford to be at this gala, yet there she was. He was nervous. He had long since ditched the Medallion, but the fact that she knew the truth meant she was still a threat. What if she had found a way to prove who she really was? Or worse, what if she had found the Medallion? The last thing Evan wanted was to go back to his old body, his old poverty-stricken life. He needed to figure out what she knew, but he had to do it at a safe distance...

Come Down

Adam answered the door and leaned against the frame. “Well, it’s about time. I expected you here an hour ago when I first swapped into your body,” He sighed, “What the heck have you been doing upstairs with my body?”

“I thought I was hallucinating or dreaming or something,” Beth explained to Adam, “I just didn’t believe I could suddenly be in someone else’s body, but it’s even weirder to see someone else in mine.”

“I wish I had known you were going to wait so long. I clearly got the better end of this deal, and I wouldn’t have minded a little alone time with this body.”

“Hey! Don’t forget that body is actually MINE! You better be careful with what you do with it.”

“You’ll need to trust me somewhat. You can’t watch me all the time...”
