"The old man always stayed on that corner. He was lonely and every morning he tried to talk with this cute girl that passed by. He would sometimes pay for her food with what little money he had from begging, when she ate at the nearby stand. He was as nice as he could be, because he just wanted a kind word from this bright young girl. He wanted to think he had a friend.

But she was always so cruel to him. She usually laughed at him, many days just passing by without returning his greeting. She was always willing to take his money when he offered to buy her a snack, but she never even said thank you.

Then one day, a shockwave of magic went sweeping through the street. The two were hit by it, and they swapped bodies. The first thing the old man realized when he regained consciousness is that he is now a schoolgirl, so he'll never have to be alone anymore. He turned toward the girl, who was now in his body, looking pathetic and frail. And with a grin he decided to unleash all his frustration. His time was now."
