The Machine

 Jack fiddled with the gear-shifts of his new machine. For all intents and purposes, he was done.

To be honest, he was surprised at how easy this machine was to make. He didn't think a soul switcher would be that easy. But here he was, the machine was finished and nothing had exploded.

Well, he should really say, nothing had exploded yet. He hadn't actually turned the machine on. But he was certain it would work. After all, he had to be able to build at least one machine without a fire or explosion. Right?
