Two Times?

Describing James as a scrawny nerd would be accurate; it’d even be how he’d describe himself. And when he arrived on Exchange Island for vacation, he couldn’t have been more delighted with the body he ended up in -- a bodybuilder type man with huge muscles, an Adonis type guy. He couldn’t believe he’d be spending the next two weeks like this! With his late in day arrival, he went to sleep with only the happiest dreams to come.

But an odd thing happened the next morning. Instead of waking up in his room, he awoke on the beach. Instead of having the body of the muscular man he swapped with the previous evening, he now had the body of a gorgeous woman. This didn’t make any sense. You didn’t swap multiple times on Exchange Island; it happened once on arrival (and back to normal on departure). Why did he swap again? James was worried. Something had to be wrong...

Dear Sucker

Larry was feeling pretty good about his plan. He had used the body swapper he had invented to steal a woman’s body, then sent a letter demanding a $10,000 ransom if she wanted it back with a meeting place and time. He figured the police would think she was crazy if she went to them; nobody thought body swapping was even possible. It was easy money to fund any other inventions he might imagine.

He arrived early and waited. But then the meeting time passed, then an hour or so passed. Larry couldn’t imagine the flaw in his plan. Then a kid came by and told him a man said to give him a note.

Larry read it:
Dear Sucker, I don’t know why you’d ever want to steal a woman’s body, but good luck being me. You have no idea the disadvantages you’ll face with your new gender. You think I’m going to pay you $10K to go back to who I was? Forget it. Have fun.

Larry sat and pondered. This was a setback, but he still had his device. He could swap with anyone who might be a little more eager to stay themselves.

After the Emergency

“So, I’m not dead?” A very confused Harriet asked the woman sitting in front of her.

“Luckily, no,” The woman replied, “In emergency situations, we can now download the contents of people’s brains into new bodies. It works seamlessly whenever there’s a body available. Unfortunately, it’s hard to be picky about the body one gets, and I’m sure it’s difficult for you going from female to male. I had a similar experience when I first entered this body a few years ago. But after that, I decided to put my skills as a psychologist to use helping people when they wake up.”

“What’s your name?” Harriet asked.

“Dr. Lee, but you can call me Grace if you’d like.”

“What was your name before though?”

Grace paused. “Anthony,” She replied, “You can call me that if it makes you more comfortable, but the first thing we should talk about is having you pick out a new name.”

The Cabin

In the summer of 1986, Mark had gone to the remote cabin with his girlfriend for a weekend in the woods. He never expected a spirit to possess his body, leaving his soul stuck in the wilderness as the ghost left with his girlfriend. Mark subconsciously knew the rules of becoming human again. He needed someone to stay overnight to possess their body, just as the ghost did to him. He waited for more than thirty years before a van pulled up. A group of college girls poured out. They got drunk in the cabin before passing out, Mark realized this might be his only chance for a long time. He didn’t like the idea of being a woman, but he woke up the next morning and looked at the other passed out girls still in there. He clearly picked the hottest body of the bunch, maybe this new life might not be so bad...

It was early on Christmas morning when the children of the Dretch household went downstairs and were surprised to see an unknown woman sitting next to their tree. The kids woke up their parents, and the family went down cautiously.

“It’s okay,” The woman said, “I know this is weird, but it’s me. It’s Grandpa. I certainly didn’t expect a Christmas wish I made five decades ago to finally come true, but I guess it did. Before I met your grandmother -- God rest her soul -- I was a very different man. I often dreamed and wondered what it would be like to be a woman. I made a wish back then. It never came true back then, and I certainly didn’t expect it to do so today. But here we are. And I may be a woman and somehow young again, but I’m still your Grandpa; it’s still Christmas. Let’s celebrate.”

The rest of the family didn’t even know what to say.

Back on the Job

Seymour tried to hold his head up high as he finished getting ready for his first day back at work after the Great Shift. He was sure all the guys at the office would be hitting on him. He had just the type of body that they all tried to pick up at happy hours. Heck, it was what he was doing with this woman when the Great Shift happened, and he ended up swapping into her body. He chuckled as he thought about all the things he tried that night after getting home. Of course, the laughter soon faded when he starting thinking about how some of his co-workers probably wanted to do those types of things TO him now. He knew he just needed to put on a strong attitude; no one was going to mess with him no matter what body he was in...

En Pointe

It all began as a joke when Adam found the ballet slippers with his girlfriend. They both laughed as he struggled to put them onto his feet, but they stopped laughing when the slippers laced themselves up and Adam couldn’t take them off. Then his body transformed into that of a dainty woman and his clothes morphed into a ballet outfit. And to top it all off, it seemed he could only walk on his tiptoes, just like a ballerina. He begged his girlfriend for help. She just asked, “Who are you?”

He tried to protest, telling her she just saw him transform right in front of her eyes. She just looked at him like he was crazy and ran off. She had been there! She had seen everything, but it was like this is how things always had been and she had no knowledge of what just happened!

Adam discovered he could change out of the ballerina outfit and into regular clothes, but the slippers were stuck firmly on his feet with no way off. To make matters worse, he couldn’t stand or walk in anyway but on his tiptoes. The only reprieve he got from the painful experience of always being en pointe was when he sat down. This was all like some sort of nightmare curse of these damned shoes.
