Act Like a Boy or Else . . .
by Lesley Renee Charles
I made it back to my room which during my absence my dad remade into the dream room of a teen-aged princess. The room was dominated by the canopied, four-posted bed with lilac bedcovers and the canopy in a matching shade of lilac. The walls were repainted in a nice delicate shade of lavender. The windows were framed by frilly white lace curtains.
There was a white mirrored vanity in the far corner, covered with all kinds of make-up. I shuddered at the sight of that knowing I would have to get used to my new feminine existance. I also began to wonder what my father had in store for me. Unbeknownst to me at the time, but I was later to find out, my father had requested the "judge" to have me legally known as a female with all the rights assigned. I was not to be allowed to use the men's room irregardless of what was between my legs. I was also only allowed to marry a man which I was soon to find out was already arranged as I was now the eldest daughter.
I made it to my new girly bed to rest and have a good cry. I just wanted to know why my dad was doing this to the family. I felt what I did did not warrant this punishment.
Suddenly, I heard a knock at the door. I got up and answered it and who I saw there startled me. It was my rival on the High School team and he had a bouquet of red roses. I wondered what he was up to.
"Hi Alice, I am here to explain your situation. Your dad needed a great deal of money to set up this place and he had already squandered your family's fortune. He came to me for a loan which I gave him with the provision that you Alec, now Alice was to become my wife. And yes I mean wife as in the traditional sense. You are to become a very feminine being. You will make your sister Michelle look butch. You will be in dresses and skirts, take care of my house and of course my needs. You are to be trained here in all these things, but especially in the arts of keeping a real man pleased.
"I think I will change your name to Alexandra. I don't like Alice. It will be done when you go before the judge and he changes your status to a legal female. I will court for a little bit but we will be married as soon as possible. I love the idea of you being in my care after how you always dominated me on the field. To tell you the truth, your father tried to resist my deal but he wanted this place where males are in total control that he agreed to make his son into a daughter. Now the only direct heir to your father is your youngest brother."
"Why are you doing this? Please let me go back to being Alec!"
"Alex is no more or that will be the case in a few hours when you see the judge. As to why, you loved to humiliate me when we played football. You loved to tease me about being gay so I decided to make you my girl. Besides I always had a crush on you and this seemed a good way to get back at you and look socialably acceptable. You will keep your manhood, but it will be caged in such a way as to make you sit and pee as your new situation demands. I can't wait to have you take care of my needs.
"I will be back later to escort you to the judge. Take care and dream sweet thoughts of me."
He turned and left me alone with my thoughts. I realized that it was wrong to tease Mark about his feelings for men. Now I knew I had to live with the consequences of my actions.

My guards came to get me and led me before the judge. Mark changed his mind about coming to get me, rather he decided to meet me in the court room.
"I have a petition here to Change Alec Martin Smith to Alexandra Mary Smith. It has now been granted. Alexandra you now have all the rights and privilidges of a legal woman. You now can marry a man and it is legal. You now can only use the ladies room and will be treated like any other woman.
"Mark Alan Chatham, you have petitioned this court to marry Alexandra Mary Smith. It will be done in two weeks time. You have agreed to protect and care for her, provide a home for her. And Alexandra your duties will be to take care of your husband's house and welfare for the rest of your life. I have the papers here where your father agreed to this marriage by accepting Mark's dowry. Court is dismissed."
I turned and left to start my new life, with all aspects of my old life gone for good.
