Julie ran down the hill to the dock, as she looked on in horror upon seeing her boyfriend toss the medallion into the river. There was no way she could get there in time to stop him.
“Michael, what the hell are you doing?” She screamed.
She watched Michael turned around to brandish a smile that was almost unsettling, considering it was actually on her own face.
“When I showed you the medallion and asked you to switch bodies with me, did you actually think I wanted to be you? To be a woman? To feel our intimacy from this side? I needed to lull you, get you to fall asleep after a night of passion, then come down here and toss the damn medallion to keep us stuck like this forever.”
“But why? If you don’t want to be a woman? Or me? Why would you do this?”
“Because the SEC is on their way -- with the police -- with the FBI. I did a lot of insider trading that finally caught up to me, and now they’re coming to arrest me.Or should I say, coming to arrest you. I am now technically completely innocent, since they’ll never believe any kind of crazy body swapping story. That leaves you to face the consequences of my crimes, and I can just continue on as you. It’s not what I wanted, but it’s better than jail.”
