Urban Legend

Before heading out on vacation, Tom had read up extensively about his destination. He was pretty sure he'd be hitting up all the best restaurants, sites, and beaches. But there was one really far-fetched urban legend that he thought sounded outright strange. Supposedly on one of the beaches, there was a cave with two entrances quite a distance apart. You'd pick an entrance and make your way through the dark cave until finally coming to a dead end where the rocks split and a bright patch of light seeped through. After doing so, you'd swap bodies with the person on the other side of the crack, who had come in the other entrance.

It seemed like a bit of a larf, so he made his way to the beach and found one of the caves. They weren't crowded, but he did stumble past a few people as he made his way in the darkness. After about a 15 minute walk, he saw the light. Before he was even able to peek through, there was a flash and he was surprisingly on the other side of the crack.

Tom had to admit that his first reaction was one of surprise. He hadn't expected the tale to even be remotely true, but there he stood. He was now in the body of a bikini clad woman who had been on the other side of the cave. He wiggled his body a little, just to feel how differently it moved. He looked back through the crack, walked away for a bit then walked back, hoping to trigger a swap back. It didn't take long for him to realize that there was going to be no easy way to get back to normal.
