As they ate a light breakfast from the snack bar, Drew finally decided to bring up his find.
"Hey Kate, this might sound a bit strange but have you ever heard of the Medallion of Zulo?"
Kate glanced up from her energy drink with a quizzical look. "Um, yes, I guess. It's a magic medallion that lets you trade bodies with someone every 12 hours, I think. It's a mystical thing that some people think is real."
Drew swallowed nervously and pushed ahead. "Well, the fact is it's not fictional. I I have it. With me."
Kate nearly dropped her drink. "Wait, what? You have it? Where did you get it?"
Drew shrugged. "It was at a yard sale I was poking around on my way to work yesterday. I was going to take it home last night and see if it was real, but I know it's the real thing. Since I didn't get to go home, I still have it with me."
With that, he carefully pulled out the medallion, taking extra care not to touch anything while he was holding it. He didn't want to change suddenly.
Kate's eyes nearly bugged out of her head. "I don't believe it! I think you're right, that's really it! Drew, that is so cool!"
Drew finally smiled. "I know. You want to I don't know, have some fun with it while we're stuck here? I mean, it's going to be more than 12 hours before we can leave. We could change into at least one other person, just to see what it's like, before we can leave. It will probably be more than a day or two, so we could probably play around with it quite a bit."
Kate blushed a bit. "Well, there's only the two of us, so are you saying you want to be me?"
Drew felt his face flush as well. "Um, well, we could, but, there are other options. First, we have a lost-and-found bin. We have no idea what's in there. We also have four locker rooms. The two visitor rooms are probably clean, but we could probably get into the lockers for the guys and girls home teams and get to their clothes. Plus, there might be some stuff in some of the executive suites."
Kate suddenly brightened. "Plus, we have 150 pairs of skates we rent out every day! The medallion should work with shoes, so that's 150 random people we can turn in to!"
"That's right! We have a lot of options to choose from! So, I'm going to let you pick. What should we try first: each other, the locker rooms, the lost-and-found, or the skates?"
