Courtney couldn’t stop smirking when her older sister started freaking out in her slightly younger body. Sydney had agreed to swap bodies with her for a day, but she didn’t know that Courtney had other motives. Sydney just assumed that she wanted to try out her boyfriend, which she was perfectly okay with. Courtney was also bound to a wheelchair for her entire life, so she wanted a chance to see what it was like to be able to walk.
“We need to switch back, Courtney. NOW!”
Unfortunately, it seemed like Courtney had other plans. Since the two sisters were learning magic from their grandmother, it was like Courtney’s mind was being warped. They’d been learning for the past three years, but Courtney had been learning so fast that she started trying out the more advanced spells.
Their grandmother’s body swapping spell required a willingness to switch and trust. Courtney told her older sister that they would swap back automatically after a day, but Sydney knew that something was wrong when the second day rolled around.
When she finally confronted her little sister, Courtney finally told the truth. “We both have to want to switch back,” she said softly. “And I don’t want to.”
“What do you mean you don’t want to? You told me that you only wanted to do this for a day.”
“Welp, I lied. I’m not becoming a cripple again.”
