About an hour later, Edgar returned to his team. He sat down on a block of ice stunned. It was another hour before he spoke. He described stepping onto the summit, feeling the warmth of the sun shining on him, then he felt a burning and he realized his body was changing. There was nothing he could do as he transformed from male into female.
The rest of his team rolled their eyes. They had tried to warn him from the beginning. No man had, in fact, ever returned from the summit. The gods had transformed every single last one into women as soon as they dared get that close to the heavens. Edgar may have been an outsider, but he was no exception to the rule and the magic of the land.

Waylon wasn’t surprised that his friends looked hesitant. They still didn’t believe that he wasn’t Becca, but none of them wanted to take the risk that he was telling the truth.

There was no answer.
So he waited. He figured the person in his body would return soon enough. Maybe they checked their own home as well. Greg began to consider his options and looked through the purse he had held at the time of the Shift. The address on the ID wasn’t far. Maybe he should check to see if the woman whose body he now had was waiting for him there with whatever body she had now? Or maybe he could just use the keys in this purse to enter so he could change out of these leather pants...

Of course, there was no guarantee about the body you’d end up in. Byron was using the teleportation pods for the first time and was a little surprised to find himself in a woman’s body. He was probably a foot shorter, over a hundred pounds thinner, and pasty white. He chuckled to himself imagining this woman now that she was an overweight, balding black man. He was enjoying this vacation already.

Jodi swung around in her chair, expecting to see the woman from HR. Instead she saw a woman with a face that looked remarkably like her own.
“What the hell?” Jodi asked.
“Oh, sorry, you must be very confused.” The woman said, “It’s me; it’s Tony. HR told me about the report, and then they used the DNA of you they have on file to turn me into a copy of you. And I’ve got to say I’ve learned my lesson. The way some people treated you, myself included, was completely unacceptable.”
“They told you it was me who reported you?” Jodi asked before pausing to add, “Wait, they have my DNA on file?” Then adding an additional, “They can turn you into a copy of me?”
Tony nodded, “They have everyone’s DNA. They do it for temporary learning exercises like this. At least, I HOPE it’s temporary.”
