Nigel Brooks had planned his trip to Exchange Island perfectly to ensure an optimal result. The 80-year-old billionaire chartered a personal flight with only a handful of young professionals just out of college, all of them handsome, fit young men. It would ensure he would swap with one for the entirety of this expedition. But after he arrived, instead of swapping with one of the men as planned, he found himself on the beach with dried salt in tangled hair and holes in tattered jeans. The most shocking aspect of it all was that he was a woman! He could only presume that she was in some sort of boating accident off the coast at around the same time his plane had landed.

Well, this wasn’t what Nigel had signed up for at all! He stormed to the front desk of the resort, demanding a different swap. The staff were helpful, but they explained it didn’t matter how this other person came to the island; they couldn’t control the swaps. They offered Nigel some clothes and insisted  he take one of the nicest rooms. Nigel was furious. He talked about how much money he paid to be a young man again for a time. The last thing he wanted was to be a woman! He began to cry.

Change the Plan

Bruce thought that swapping bodies with a woman would be an instant turn. Yet once he actually built up the courage to steal a woman’s body, he was disappointed. Something about having a feminine body so accessible just wasn’t the same. 

He quickly adjusted his plan by going into a women’s locker room. This too came up short. Now that estrogen and other female hormones were running through him, the idea of women in various states of undress just wasn’t exciting him.

But he wouldn’t give up. He pulled out his phone and started taking pictures. No one would think twice if he pretended to take some selfies while actually quietly snapping photos of other women. He might not be enjoying this sight right now, but when he was back in his own body he certainly would!

Of course, what Bruce hadn’t thought of was how exactly he was going to get his own body back now...

Business as Usual

“Quite frankly, I don’t care that I swapped bodies with Aida. I don’t care that the entire world swapped bodies. These reports need to be finished, and no one is going home until they’re done.” With that, Dan put his glasses on and leaned over the table in the conference room. Then he sighed and took the glasses off, knowing he no longer need them since he had the eyes of Aida, his administrative assistant.

The rest of the office looked on awkwardly, a few noticing that Dan was about to give a free show thanks to Aida’s short skirt. Others just wanted to go home. Work had been tough enough after The Great Shift struck earlier that day, and the fact that Dan, the head of the company, was pressuring to continue on with business as usual was tough to accept.

The last thing Harold remembered was turning on his invention that was supposed to enhance traits to “make him cool.” It was a device he had envisioned in high school, but never acted on creating, thinking college would be better. College was no better. He was still made fun of daily for being a scrawny, nerdy loser. But waking up and getting to his feet, he realized something had gone wrong. He wasn’t a cool version of himself -- he was a woman!

“Hey, Bro, you’re up!” Harold heard a voice say. He turned to see  a vaguely recognizable version of himself enter the room. The guy was buff, tan, and -- simply put -- cool.

The other Harold continued, “Just so you know, our invention actually worked. I’m everything we dreamed of. Unfortunately, there was a side effect. All the super lame parts of my personality became, well, you.”

“But I’m a woman!”

“You know we always used to get shit on for being girlie. You probably got whatever chick hormones we had too.”

“You mean estrogen?” The female Harold asked. He paused thinking abut that exchange, realizing he didn’t truly get the short end of the stick. Yes, he retained his effeminate nature and the bodily hormones had made this form a woman’s; he was still scrawny, pale, and nerdy. But his had unwittingly considered his intelligence a “nerdy” trait, and retained that as well. His male counterpart, while now buff, attractive, and totally masculine also seemed to be relatively dumb. The female Harold knew he could fix it and merge them back together but also had a hunch the male Harold might object.

The days passed; Andrew and Maria kept trying to use the orbs, but they never worked. Eventually, much like the orbs mysteriously appeared in the office, they went away. Maria seemed mildly upset, but Andrew took a deep breath. 

“I think I can do this. I can be you,” He told her, “There’s just one thing I need to know about. Kyle keeps calling. I need to know what to tell him.” 

“I guess it’s all up to you now,” Maria sighed, “But here’s the deal. He’s my husband, but he cheated on me. So we separated; we were trying to see if could reconcile when all this happened. I don’t know what else to tell you.” 

Andrew took a deep breath before leaning in and smiling. “I got this,” He said.

The Orbs (Part 3)

Both Andrew and Maria made it through the day without any incident. They tried to orbs one last time before leaving to no avail; that meant they were going to be stuck in each others bodies for at least the weekend. They spent the rest of Friday giving each other instructions on how to dress and act, mostly in preparation for returning to work on Monday. The weekend certainly helped Andrew adjust to being in Maria’s body. By the time Monday rolled around, he effortlessly slipped into a blue dress and put on some makeup. It wasn’t until he arrived to work on Monday that something threw him off. There was a large vase full of flowers on Maria’s desk with a note, “I don’t know what I did wrong, but I missed you on Saturday. Love, Kyle.” Andrew guessed Kyle was Maria’s boyfriend, but she hadn’t mentioned him. She certainly didn’t tell hi to show up to any date! He wasn’t sure he would’ve gone, but he also began to wonder what else Maria hadn’t told him.

The Orbs (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Andrew and Maria tried touching the orbs at the same time together several more times. The orbs didn’t swap them back, nor did they provide the same calming feeling they did earlier. Eventually, Andrew sat down in Maria’s seat and took of her blazer, and suggested they try later. Maybe they needed time to recharge or something? Maria sighed as she agreed as well. She told Andrew that, luckily, Fridays weren’t busy at the front desk; he should be able to handle it. Andrew told Maria he’d try to covertly do his work on her computer and send some reports she’d need to forward throughout the day to her email. It seemed like a reasonable enough plan to pretend to be each other until they could use the orbs again to switch back...
