About a month ago, Aaron had found the strange book among the shelves at his local store. Inside the pages were magic spells. He was skeptical at first until he tried one to see that it actually worked! He bought the book and brought it home.

What he didn’t know was the book itself had a curse, which would infect Aaron with a bit of mischievous chaos. In one of his bolder acts, he used a spell to swap bodies with his friend, Melinda.

After a few more chaotic spells, he decided the most mischievous thing he could do was quietly place the book back on the shelf for someone else to experiment.

After another few weeks passed, the curse would fade and Aaron would be horrified by the fact that he was forever swapped with Melinda. He’d return to the book store only to find the book had already been bought by someone else and was out there causing chaos for more people int he world.

Professional Setting

Greg stood awkwardly in the office. He wasn’t sure how he got here or why he was now in the body of a woman. For a brief instant, he hoped he wasn’t the only one who had swapped bodies with someone, but everyone around seemed to be acting normally enough so that didn’t seem likely. He was gong to have to figure things out. He had to find her desk or her office. He’d also have to figure out what her actual job was. Heck, he didn’t even know her name!

Before swapping into this body, he was just a slacker college student at the nearby university. He wasn’t ready to be thrust into the business world already. Maybe if he could just fake it for a bit, he’d swap back? But as the hours passed, he was coming to the realization that he just may be stuck like this.

Retail Therapy

Jason peaked into the store window. The antique shop he visited last year was long gone, replaced with a store that sold trendy trinkets. He was sad that the old shop was gone; it had, after all, quite literally changed his life. Before being gifted a curious item from the former shop’s owner, he was a quiet, boring guy. But the item literally transformed him into a woman. Suddenly, he was seemingly much more able to express himself. He dyed his hair, he bought cute clothes; he felt talkative and began to love to laugh.

Seeing the old place was gone seemed like a tragedy, but then he noticed a cute pair of shoes in the window of the new store and quickly lost his nostalgia. His feet would look so cute in those once he bought them!

Andy had been sitting on the roadside bench for at least an hour now. So far not a single vehicle had driven by. When he found himself in a different location in an entirely different body about an hour ago, his first thought was to try to touch base with some other people. There didn’t seem to be anyone around. He was in a large park of some sort with a few benches, a roadway, and a bridge in the distance. He thought his best bet was to wait for a potential ride.

As he waited, he took stock of his new body. It was obvious he was a woman now, but he didn’t seem to have a purse or anything in his pockets. He had little more than a mystery on his hands. The lack of cars made him worried. He began to think he wasn’t the only one in the wrong body, and maybe people were staying off the roads as they evaluated everything themselves. He wondered if he should just start walking.

Perfect Crime (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
“I bet you two thought we’d never find you,” Amie scowled as she glared at Charlie and John tied up in front of her and Tiffany, “Honestly, you did a pretty good job; it took us fifteen years!”

“Pretty good isn’t perfect though,” Tiffany added, “And it looks like you’ve lived pretty good lives for us with nice houses in the suburbs and handsome husbands. We have NOT been enjoying your lives at all. I have hated ever second of being a guy.”

Amie took back over, “We’re wiling to deal though. It would be one thing to take our bodies back, but how could you ever give us back the fifteen years you stole from us? So here’s the deal, we’l let you keep our bodies, but you have to tell us how you swapped bodies so we can steal young, beautiful bodies of our choosing. We deserve a second chance.”

Tiffany ripped the duct tape off Charlie’s mouth slowly, inflicting quite a bit of pain.

“What d’ya say?” She asked.

“If we tell you, how do we know you won’t steal these bodies back?”

“You don’t. But if you don’t tell us, you won’t have those bodies for yourselves too much longer. We will kill you. It’s all we thought about for the first six or seven years. You’re lucky we got a little less impulsive as time went on.”

John gave Charlie a knowing look. They knew they had no choice but to share their secret and hope for the best...

Perfect Crime (Part 1)

“Do you ever worry that Amie and Tiffany will find us?” John asked.

“We flew 3000 miles away and changed our names, how would they ever find us?” Charles asked.

“We stole their bodies and left them in our bodies; that’s some pretty strong motivation to come looking for us, don’t you think?”

“I don’t miss being middle aged and balding, do you? That’s their lives now, and even if they did find us, they don’t know the first thing about how to swap back. It’s the prefect crime, and these are the perfect bodies.”

“I know. I couldn’t imagine Amie wearing an outfit anywhere near this hot. Good looks are so wasted on so many good looking women.”

“We still need to get better at walking in heels though!”

“No time like the present to start learning! Want to sneak into this store and buy ourselves some?”

“You read my mind, let’s go.”

Short Trip

After a long first week at his job at the firm fresh out of college, Jim decided to take a taxi home. He was shocked upon leaving to swap bodies with the driver. He wanted to yell, fight, or scream, but instead he just drove away. He didn’t really know what else to do except pick up another passenger and pretend everything was normal. He tried to emulate everything he had seen other cabbies do, even wishing his passenger “Have a nice day” as his driver had done. Jim was even more shocked when he swapped bodies again, this time with the woman he had been driving around. He watched as the cab drove away again, presumably continuing the cycle.

Over the course of an hour, Jim had gone from being a cocky, young kid just out of college to a fat, smelly cab driver, and now he was a middle aged Asian woman. He was hoping to swap again soon -- this was exactly the life or gender he wanted -- however, he hadn’t yet figured out that the swaps had been caused by the magic taxi he had bee in, and this body he was now in was his for good.

Immersive Entertainment

Being able to try out the new “immersive Entertainment” VR headset was a dream come true. Edwin had always loved new tech and the implications for gaming were downright insane. He put on the goggles and earphones and was instantly transported to a new world.

Well, actually the world was almost identical to the real one. In fact, the tech company had gone through great lengths to get every detail about the real world perfect in the virtual one. It was all pretty least until Edwin noticed his avatar. The character he was walking around with was clearly female. Even as he put his hands on his body, it all felt incredibly realistic. He wondered how this was accomplished. He wouldn’t find out the secret until he was back in the real world and discovered the glitch that swapped his body with another user...

The Crimson Queen (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Teaching classes over the next few days as Miss Reed wasn’t exactly fun or easy for Tom. Knowing that he had the strength and powers of The Crimson Queen and not using them was even harder. The one thing he did do was wear her skimpy spandex suit under her conservative clothing; it made him feel better knowing he could leap into action even if the agency had told him not to.

That all changed one day as he made his way back to Miss Reed’s apartment one evening after work. He could hear a cry for help. More accurately, he couldn’t avoid hearing it -- The Crimson Queen’s ears were just too powerful. He realized he couldn’t ignore it.

He began to unbutton one sleeve, ready to leap into action. He only paused momentary, knowing he needed to be someplace private to avoid revealing Miss Reed’s identity to the world.

So he rushed into her apartment at his fastest non-super speed, locked the door, and went into action. He was amazed at how fast he could move, changing clothes in an instant. Opening a window, he flew out of it, and arrived to the cry for help mere seconds later. The thugs harassing the woman screaming were no match for Tom with The Crimson Queen’s body. He got a thank you before darting back to Miss Reed’s home.

He knew he was told not to do the whole hero thing, but the secret agency wouldn’t mind that one little thing, right?

The Crimson Queen

It was only about fifty or sixty years ago when superheroes were merely the work of fiction, but reality eventually began to imitate art. By the time Tom was born, they were commonplace; he had grown up obsessed with them. By the time he was eighteen -- while most rational people ran from a superhero battling a villain - Tom would run toward the event, hoping to get a closer look.

On one such instance, Tom got a little too close. He saw the villain first, Technotron, a master of advanced technologies and invention. Then he caught sight of a woman in tight spandex fighting him. He couldn’t quite make out which hero it was; he needed to find out.

He barely caught enough of a look to identify her, The Crimson Queen, before Technotron took out an odd device and aimed it at her. Tom tried to yell a warning, but the blast was too quick and widespread. It caught not only The Crimson Queen, but Tom as well.

He awoke a short time later. He thought he’d feel worse after being hit, but for some reason he felt the best he could ever imagine. The wind blew and he felt it on his skin -- he thought he was naked and tried to cover up, only to discover he was wearing a familiar spandex outfit. And he was not only wearing The Crimson Queen’s outfit -- he also had her body! Technotron must’ve hit them both with some sort of body swapping device he had invented!

He used The Queen’s speed to rush his own body to a hospital, then he received a call from a top secret agency for a briefing of the encounter. Tom quickly confessed everything.

The agency seemed to take the news quite calmly. They told Tom he would assume The Crimson Queen’s secret identity until they could figure out how to reverse the swap. Tom nodded, but was shocked when they revealed who The Queen really was -- Miss Reed, his high school biology teacher! As he put on her blouse and skirt, he couldn’t believe he was her! And, not only that, he was also a superhero beneath this conservative outfit!

An Education

As Aaron looked in the mirror to tie the long hair back into a ponytail, he felt like he was starting back at square one. For the past decade he had studied hard in undergrad and graduate school, then there was the endless search until he finally scored a teaching position at a local college. Then just as spoke the first word in front of his first class, he found himself sitting in the hall hearing his voice recite the lecture he had prepared.

For some inexplicable reason, he was now inside the body of one of his freshman students, a young woman. He decided it best not to panic as everyone else was acting completely normally -- including his own body.

After class, he went to the nearest bathroom, reminding himself he now had to use the woman’s room. It was hard not to contemplate what his new life would be like. He’d be going through the motions all over again, but as someone else this time. He didn’t even know much about the woman he now was. He hadn’t learned any of his students’ names; he’d barely even reviewed the class list!

Once George got to the office, his hormones ran wild upon seeing all the guys there. He tried to flirt with them and got quite aggressive, reaching to places he shouldn’t or hiking up his leather skirt in the hopes one of the guys would just take him. It was a little too much for any professional environment.

He got called into the boss’s office -- which was actually his office. He paced the room, wondering if Nicole was now in his body. He had hopes she’d understand what he was going through, or maybe offer to relieve his tension.

It was still a shock to watch his own body walk through the door. He wanted to ask about the swap; he wanted to ask what Jen had done to her. Instead all he could think about was that the person in front of him was a man, a man who could fill his desires. He stammered as he asked for a favor.

He watched a smile come across his former body’s face as it spoke, “Technically, I could report you to HR for what you did out there, and what you’re doing in here. But maybe we can keep this between just the two of us...”

The next morning, George woke up in Nicole’s bed. He had no idea how his wife got into her head that he had slept with her, but now he was in Nicole’s body as a result. He knew that being female should feel foreign and strange, but it almost felt normal; he wondered if this was part of Jen’s hypnosis.

He thought about staying in bed all day, but he knew he had work. However, the thought of seeing men int he office got him excited enough to give him the motivation to get ready. He picked out an outfit that he was sure would entice one or two (at least).

He hated how much he was focused on satisfying this need Jen put in his head, but it too felt natural. He couldn’t seem to do anything about it, no matter how hard he tried...

“Don’t lie to me,” Jen scolded as she pulled out a small device.

“Will that force me to tell the truth?” George asked, “Because I am! I never cheated on you!”

“No, this is the next part of your punishment. You’ll still be you, but in one way you’ll be very much like the little slut you appear to be. You’ll crave men. You’ll seduce them. You’ll want them inside of you. And you will find you will do just about anything to make it happen.”

“Please, Jen, don’t do this.”

“You did this to yourself, George.”

“But I didn’t! Please”

“It’s too late for that.”

Never (Part 1)

George awoke to find himself tied down. He struggled to break free, but the binds were too tight. He could feel something was wrong with his body, but until he screamed for help he had no idea what. But the voice that screamed wasn’t his own; it was higher pitched. He knew what was wrong. He was a woman! A person responded to his cries for help, and momentarily he was relieved to see his wife, Jen. But instead of helping, she just glared at him.

“Jen!” George shouted, “Help me out!”

“Not yet. I’m not done with you yet.” She replied coldly.

“Did you do this? Why?”

“Don’t you recognize her, George? That slut from your office that you cheated on me with?”

“Jen, I‘ve never cheated on you!”

As he laid in his hospital bed, Rodney believed he had been good in life, treated people well, and generally done the right thing. When he finally passed, he went straight to heaven. He was quickly funneled to a room where the afterlife was explained to him. Apparently, he was absolutely correct in thinking he had lead a good life, and he was to be rewarded by becoming an angel. He’d return to Earth from time to time to help people. The idea of this all made Rodney very happy, and he couldn’t wait to help. There was only one catch -- he needed to be in his true form.

To Rodney, this made sense. After all, how could he be an angel without any wings? Or maybe a halo? It turns out, Rodney’s true form wasn’t quite what he was expecting. Sure, he got the wings, but he also appeared to be decidedly female. He became instantly confused, but he was told it was naive to think his Earthly body was anything like his true form.

Before he could even process any of this, he was sent back to Earth for his first mission. He found himself in a hotel bathroom. A voice inside his head told him to focus to help him hide his wings. Then he was told all about a married couple going through a rocky patch, and how he had to help them. He sighed as he listened to the voice in his head -- he still couldn’t believe he was an angel and THIS was his new body.

You Should Smile More

Every day, Kyle contemplated the hell he was trapped in. It wasn’t just that he was in the wrong body, and it wasn’t even being in the body of a woman that troubled it; it was the fact that he couldn’t seem to tell anyone about who he really was, and that he was forced into the role of a dutiful wife. He wasn’t sure how or why he was cursed like this -- he simply woke up one day like this. When he realized he was a woman, he was curious. He wanted to explore his body, but instead he felt compelled into the kitchen to prepare breakfast. A man came downstairs whom Kyle kissed. Despite feeling a little disgusted when the man squeezed his butt, Kyle smiled and giggled.

Even when the man left and Kyle was alone, he couldn’t escape. He felt compelled to clean the house, never breaking the smile on his face. When he finally finished, he wanted to watch some sports on TV; however, he couldn’t help but flip to a romantic comedy instead. It would’ve offered some comfort if he felt like he was merely a passenger in this body, but, no, he was in control. He just couldn’t seem to do anything he wanted.

After a few days, he did find one shimmer of hope. When he was able to write, he could tell the truth. He could write about his frustrations, his true self, everything. However, he couldn’t seem to show anyone his writing; he felt compelled to hide it from everyone. He eventually took to writing a diary. He knew he had to hide it, but he also knew that if someone found it, it might be irresistible to read. And even as he was writing about his pain and sadness, he couldn’t help but do it with a smile.

Alex realized how quickly he was becoming a technophobe. Technology was just moving too far, and criminals now seemed to be the early adopters. Take the whole body swapping tech. Heck, it was even banned in his country, but that didn’t stop it from being used in illegal, criminal ways. As he was walking down the street one day, a woman hit him with such a device. Suddenly, Alex was now the one in her body, and she threatened not to give him his body back unless he took out $1000 from his bank account. Alex grumbled as he headed to the nearest ATM and did as she requested. Being somewhat distracted by the feminine body he now had, he didn’t react quick enough when the woman with his body grabbed the card and cash faster than he could. She had been peeking as he entered his pin. The woman then ran away. He had his body, his ATM card, and his pin number. He was sure she was going to do a lot of damage before he could report anything to his bank or explain things to the police.

The Return

It was just a couple days ago that Dan had climbed this fence to escape; now he was climbing it to get back inside. He wasn’t sure of the extent of the weird experiments that were going on in this lab, but he knew what happened to him. They removed his brain and put it inside of someone else’s body -- a woman’s body. Despite this fact, when he saw an opportunity to make a run for it, he did. Trying to adjust to someone else’s life was just too weird. Maybe if it had been another guy or someone he knew a little more about, it would’ve been possible. But a complete stranger? A woman? Yeah, no thanks.

Dan also had concerns about the kinds of things this lab was doing to his original body. If they could swap brains, who knew what else was possible? He was certainly more than a little concerned about what could be happening to it in there. He knew he still had a lot to work out. How would he find his body? How could he force them to swap him back to normal? He hoped to form a more solid plan once he made it inside...

Good Time

Wes didn’t intend to make a device that swapped around the brains of his neighbors, but that’s exactly what the device he intended did. After he pressed the button on the invention, Wes found himself in the overweight, middle aged body of his neighbor, Jeff. He rushed back over to his own home to find that another one of his neighbors, Allie, was now inside his own scrawny, nerdy body.

That left Jeff now being the only one of the three with no clue about what the heck was going on. He was just outside mowing the lawn because his wife had been nagging him to do it, and now he found himself over the fence in Allie’s body. His first thought was that he no longer had to worry about pushing the mower around; next, he realized he could have a real good time inside.

It didn’t take long before Allie returned to her home with Wes. She noted her body wasn’t outside anymore. Then she tried to get in to find the door locked. She rang the bell, and she knocked; Jeff wasn’t answering. He was very busy inside. After all, he hadn’t wanted to do chores because the big game was on. As long as he had Allie’s body, he could watch the whole thing without his wife yelling at him. He wasn’t about anyone spoil such a good time!

Early Arrival

Ethan thought he’d surprise his parents by coming home a few days early from his college’s spring break. When he got there, his mom appeared to be out, but he heard some noises coming from his dad’s study. He opened the door and was surprised to see a young Asian woman standing there.

“Ethan!” The woman said shocked.

Ethan seemed confused that the woman knew him; he didn’t recognize her.

“I know this is probably unbelievable,” The woman continued, “But I’m actually your father. My work at the museum uncovered a strange medallion that could turn one person into another. I know you probably don’t believe me, but I’m stuck in Miss Cho’s body for the next two hours. After which, I can turn myself back to normal.”

Ethan still couldn’t believe the woman standing before him was actually his fifty year old father. And the idea of some sort of transforming medallion? It all seemed so far fetched. But why was this woman in his family’s house alone? And why would she make up such an insane story?

Thursday, April 9, 2020


As he stepped into the room wearing the pink satin dress, Jack groaned. “Do I really have to do this?” He asked.

“Yes, Mr. Curtis,” Lana insisted, “It was your stupid demonstration in science class that swapped our bodies, and I think you still don’t want me ruining your career, so you need to do as I say.”

“But we’ll be able to swap back tomorrow...”

“...And tomorrow if AFTER prom. I’m the most popular girl in school! I can’t be seen missing prom! Even if that means you have to go in my place. Just smile and do everything my boyfriend says.”

“Everything? Come on, you don’t mean that. On prom night?”

“I do.”

“But what if he wants to -- ?”

“Then do it. My body is eighteen. It’s legal.”

“It’s weird.”

“Use protection.”

“But I...”

“Look, Mr. Curtis, do it or I will make your life miserable to swap back into...”

Marvin didn’t know exactly what killed him. It was sudden and unexpected. He expected fluffy clouds and pearly gates; instead, he got something that resembled the DMV office. And much like the DMV office, he waited. It seemed like forever. When his number was finally called, he stepped up to a counter where a surly looking older woman was reviewing his paperwork. Marvin tried to speak, but the woman cut him off.

“Sir, I need to finish reviewing your paperwork. Please be patient.” She groaned.

After a long pause, she meandered, “Sir, why are you here? Your paperwork says you aren’t supposed to be dead yet.”

Marvin answered, “It’s not like I had a choice in the matter. If I’m supposed to be alive, couldn’t I just go back?”

“I’m not sure you noticed how long this line was. You’ve been up here for seventy years already. You weren’t supposed to die yet, but I can’t send you back to what is now almost certainly a rotting corpse. But we do have a form you can fill out to request transfer into the body of someone who should’ve died but lived.”

The woman handed Marvin a form. As he filled it out he asked, “Do I get to pick the body I end up in?”

The woman rolled her eyes as she took the filled out form from Marvin. With a monotone disgust she said, “You get what’s available.”

Suddenly, Marvin felt like he was dying in reverse. As the dull bureaucratic afterlife faded, he was back in the street in a location not far from where he died. Feeling a breeze rush up his legs, he noticed he was wearing a skirt. The next logical thing he noticed was that he was now a woman.

“Really?” He asked as he looked up to the sky as if the afterlife could hear him. “Really? A woman? Come on!”

The Prototype (Part 2)

“Why the hell would she do this to me? And to the company? She had so much to lose by stealing the prototype!” Max wondered allowed.

Harvey replied, “Maybe it wasn’t her. Maybe it was our competition.”


“Think about it. If someone else if creating a mind swapper, they use it to steal Danielle’s body, then use her body to steal the device. Maybe you just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when she seized the opportunity.”

“But if they can already use it on humans, they’re months ahead of us...unless there’s some flaw? Gd, I hope my brain doesn’t melt into a mushy liquid in two days! ... Oh, and could one of you untie me?”

“We’re developers, you honestly think any of us excelled in Boy Scouts?”

“Fair enough, but maybe you can grab a knife from the supply closet to cut me loose?”

Monday, April 6, 2020

The Prototype

The hardware development team rolled in late Friday morning after a successful test the night before. They were surprised to see the VP of marketing, Danielle Takashi, tied up and gagged on the floor. One of the devs, Harvey, removed the gag and before he could ask, Danielle spoke.

“I know what this looks like, but I’m not Danielle. I’m Max! She used the prototype to swap our bodies and then overpowered me!” Max explained with Danielle’s sweet, soothing voice.

“We tested that on animals!” Harvey stated, “Human testing is months away.”

“Well, fortunately, it worked, and my brain isn’t fried! Danielle’s didn’t appear to be either as she ran off with my body AND our hard work. It took us ten years to build that brain swapper!”

“I have some backup copies of the plans. It would take a while to reconstruct, but we wouldn’t be started from scratch.” “I’d check it all. She went wild taking stuff while in my body, and she made me sit here and watch it all..”

New Age

Grant didn’t like all the yoga and new age weirdness his girlfriend was into, and he often tried steering clear of it. But one day he decided to indulge her by participating; it was his biggest regret. For some reason, he was a bit of a natural, almost immediately hitting a near perfect zen-like state. But as he pulled himself back to reality, it became obvious he was going back to the wrong reality. The sky was green, the sand was pink, and Grant was now a woman. He quickly tried to get back in that state, but it was hard to ignore the distractions of his new body; the long nails on his fingertips, the large breasts in a tiny bikini, the long hair flowing into his face. He didn’t like this stuff before; now he hated it.

Happy to Help

Despite many advances in medical technology, humans were still subject to many dangers. One could still suffer in an accident, and it seemed diseases continued to take humanity off guard from time to time. A recent pandemic had doctors scrambling, and as they treated patients they too often felt ill. Luckily, most of these doctors were young and healthy; their bodies would likely recover. However, they’d be unable to work while infected. That is, until one hospital had the idea to utilize recent body swapping technology. There was a call for volunteers to swap with sick doctors in order to keep them on the front lines. Brian quickly stepped up.

They rushed him in quickly and swapped him with a sick doctor immediately. Before Brian could ask any questions, he saw his own body rush by a nearby window to help patients.

Brian was alone in the room, quarantined. It didn’t take him long to realize the doctor he had swapped with was a woman. He waited for a while before a voice explained how he would safely get home to avoid further transmission. He was also told he would likely only be mildly sick, but to contact the hospital if things got worse. He’d be stuck in this body for the next two or three weeks. Brian was just happy to be able to help those on the front lines of fighting this virus.

Odd Jobs

When Derek first discovered the odd box that could transform his body into anyone else in the world with just a single photo, he didn’t know quite what to do with it. Then one day it hit him. For a sizable fee, he’d transform himself into anyone and do anything someone wanted (with some ground rules). His inbox quickly filled up with so many requests. He’d pick one out at random and schedule them. There were some ones that felt weird at first.

For instance, there was one guy who asked Derek to transform himself into an ex-girlfriend, then Derek had to pretend to marry the guy. The ceremony was elaborate, the guy’s family was there, the food was good. The whole thing actually ended up making Derek smile. He enjoyed being the center of attention, and he literally had a good time.

In hindsight, Derek realized the guy probably had sinister motivations. There was photo and video evidence that a woman who looked EXACTLY like his ex-girlfriend married him. Maybe he used it in court or some other nefarious purpose to trap her. He tried not to think about the weird consequences of his business as he pulled out another name at random to earn another hefty fee.

A Woman's Place

A few days had passed since Aja swapped bodies with her chauvinistic husband. She still couldn’t figure out how it happened, but he told her they couldn’t afford any more sick days, so she’d have to go to work in his place. It was difficult for her. She didn’t know exactly how to do his job, but with a few calls home, she got through the day.

The odd part was when Aja got home and saw her husband in the kitchen. He was preparing dinner and seemed genuinely happy about it. He beamed when he told her the food would be ready in just a few minutes.

Aja couldn’t shake it. Shortly before the swap he had been telling her about how a woman’s place was in the kitchen, and now that he was the wife, he seemed right at home at the stay-at-home wife. Could he have been behind the swap?

“If it makes you feel any better, you look quite nice today, Jack.”

“Gee, thanks,” Jack said sarcastically, “I guess it feels good to know that I’m managed the skills of making a forty-something year old woman to look good enough to please my dad.”

“That’s not what I meant,” Jack’s father sighed, “It hasn’t been easy for me in your sister’s body either. It hasn’t been easy for anyone in this post-Great Shift world. I was honestly trying to relay a message from your mom. She’s having a hard time in your body, you know. She misses the woman she was. She’s glad to see you adapting well enough, and she likes seeing her old body, well, look nice.”
