Before swapping, Chris and Amy had arranged to swap back the next morning. Chris would take care of Amy’s morning exercise and they’d meet up in the park. After what had happened between him and Marshall the night before, Chris had some difficult things to tell Amy. How was he going to tell her that he didn’t want to swap back? That he wanted to keep her body and continue the relationship he started with Marshall?

It seemed, however, that wouldn’t be a problem. When Amy arrived at the park, she had a dire look on her face. Before Chris could say a word, she told him that she had some bad news. The medallion had been stolen; they’d be unable to swap back. Chris was surprised by how well that worked out, and he just couldn’t wait to see Marshall again!

Marshall walked over to the other side of the court to congratulate the person he thought was Amy. He confessed that he didn’t actually know much about tennis and was just looking for an excuse to spend some time together. Then he planted a giant kiss of Chris’s lips.

Chris was taken aback. He wanted to push this guy away, but he didn’t for some reason. There was another feeling inside of him; that he actually liked this! He was suddenly both cursing and loving being inside Amy’s body. He wasn’t sure if he wanted to fight the wonderful feelings her body was giving him or not. Maybe he’d let this kiss continue just a little bit longer...

On the Court

Chris always knew his sister Amy would do whatever it took to win a bet, but he was skeptical when she asked him to swap bodies with her. She showed him a cheap looking medallion, explaining it was possible with this odd trinket. She also knew Chris was a much better tennis player than she was, and she had made a bet with a co-worker that she could beat him on the court. Chris agreed on two conditions. The first was, of course, if the odd medallion worked; he still didn’t believe that. The second was a 60/40 split in his favor on the money she had bet with the co-worker.

Amy was quick to prove the first point. The Medallion of Zulu didn’t disappoint as it turned Chris into Amy and Amy into Chris. Chris didn’t disappoint either. On the court a few hours later, he made short work of Amy’s co-worker, Marshall. Not only did Chris beat the guy; it was a shut out. Chris started bragging and celebrating.

Jason was hungry. He wanted little more than to buy a candy bar and shove it into his face. But he was hesitant. Ever since he swapped bodies with Caroline, she had harped on him on just about everything. What he ate was a particular sore spot for her. She had gotten inside his head. Even though it was the first time he had such an opportunity where there was no way for him to be caught, her voice was still nagging in his head. He tried telling himself that it was just one candy bar, that there was no way she would ever know. But he could hear her saying that she would know, and she’d be sure to make good on all of her threats. So he just sat there in indecision with his stomach growling. What harm could one candy really do?

Abe could see the expression on his former face drop with disappointment before watching his old body shuffle away again. Abe continued to smile as he performed one of the moves he had seen the yoga instructor do earlier. He marveled at not just how flexible this body was but how strong as well! He could hold all his weight up with his arms effortlessly.

He shouted out to his old body that he’d be wiling to swap back if they ever found a way, but the shouting seem to be ignored. Abe remembered how poor his hearing had been before swapping and realized it was likely she just hadn’t heard him. He shrugged. He had no desire to go back to his original body. He was young again and more energetic, spry, and fit than he had ever remembered being in his life. He assumed this could only look up from here.

Doctor's Orders (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Abe watched his former body slowly shuffle over. He smiled as he sat, stretching his legs out effortlessly into a full split position. He certainly loved not feeling any pain as moved.

“What did you do?” His former body asked.

“Nothing,” He replied, “But I’m not complaining either. The first thing I’m going to do is grab a beer and a nice juicy steak!”

“But you can’t! I’m a vegetarian!”

“And you can still be one. Heck, my doctor will probably be very happy with you for doing so. He’s been ordering me to cut out something or another for years now. But now that old body is no longer mine, I’m not doing any of that crap.”

Doctor's Orders (Part 1)

Every time Abe visited the doctor, he was given more bad news due to his age. A few years ago, he was told he needed to stop drinking. Last year, he was told to cut out red meat. And just a few weeks ago, he was instructed to start taking a yoga class. The 80 year old man grumbled as he stood on a mat at the beach, watching a cheerful Asian woman encouraging the other seniors in class to perform various poses. Most of the time, Abe just stood there. He was sure his body wouldn’t move in just about any of these ways, and was convinced doing so was stupid even if he could. All the while, the instructor did her best to push Abe to try with a smile. Then something odd happened. Instead of standing, Abe was now on his stomach; his hands were inexplicably touching his own feet. His body no longer ached, and he realized he was now in front of the class staring at all the other seniors. Coming to the conclusion he somehow swapped bodies with the yoga instructor, he mumbled the words, “Class dismissed.” The other seniors walked away, leaving his own body standing there with a surprised, blank expression.
