Sean was tired of being berated by Olivia, and decided to stand up for himself.
"Erin," he said, addressing Olivia, emphasizing the name so that she understood that he knew she was currently occupying Erin's body. "You need to calm down. I'm sorry this happened to you, but it appears there's nothing we can do at the moment. We just have to wait it out and see what happens."
Olivia, not used to being spoken to this way, prepared a nasty retort. But when she opened her mouth to speak, the words that came out were much calmer and more reserved than she intended. She realized that she couldn’t seem to get angry or aggressive, no matter how hard she tried.
"Uh, sorry," she said, surprised by her own sudden change in demeanor. "I just...I don't like being stuck in this body."
Sean nodded sympathetically. "I know, it's tough. But we'll get through it together."
Olivia nodded, but then noticed something strange. When she tried to correct Sean about her name, she found that she can only refer to herself as Erin. She tried a couple of times to say her own name out loud, but each time it came out as Erin.
"What the hell is going on?" she asked, frustrated. "Why can't I say my own name?"
The real Erin, worried that her identity might be slipping too, found that she could still say her original name without issue. She couldn’t resist the temptation to mock Olivia for her dilemma, taking some small revenge for the bullying Olivia had given her over the years.
"Looks like the magic of the potion is messing with your brain," Erin said, trying to hide a smirk. "I guess you're not as smart as you thought you were."
Olivia scowled at Erin, her fists clenched at her sides. "Shut up, Erin," she said through gritted teeth. "You're the one who started this whole mess in the first place."
Erin just rolled her eyes at Olivia's antics, drawing an even bigger frown from her old face. “Don’t roll your eyes at me, especially with my face! I invented eyerolling!”
