The Long Road into Town

Barney didn’t even have time to appreciate the fact that his body swapping machine had actually worked before electrical systems lost power and the external console caught fire. It spread quickly, and Barney grabbed the core of the machine and ran. The core maintained the programming and main data of the body swapping machine, and while he’d have a lot of work ahead of him, he should have enough to be able to swap himself and Joanne back to normal within a week or two.

But speaking of Joanne, he didn’t see any sign of her in his body. He could only hope that she had gotten out safely as well and was already well down the road somewhere.

And it would be a long road for sure. The cabin where they had tested the machine was deep in the forest and miles from town. There was a chance the fire could spread to the surrounding forest. And the temperatures were frigid, and they seemed to feel even colder now that he was in Joanne’s body. As his panic began to dwindle, feeling the effects of now being in her body were starting to settle into his mind. It wasn’t just the cold, it was the mere fact that her body was different than his own that made the journey much more awkward. But he didn’t have a choice. It wasn’t even about this being his only hope of getting his body back, this was his only hope of survival.
