Effie and Brad tried best to smile through Christmas Eve. Sure, the twins had switched bodies thanks to the Medallion of Zulu, but the holidays had been tough enough for the family this year. Shortly after the two had gone off to college, their parents got divorced. They all agreed they should still spend Christmas together, but the tension between their mom and dad was intense. Experimenting with the Medallion had been an escape, but it turned out to be just another thing to add stress. Both siblings just kept telling themselves that they could switch back in the morning.
