Any Other Name

Story Sent in by Laurence:

I thought it would be nice to take Lora out on a walk by a local pond and then do coffee. While we strolled she kept calling me "Drake." My name is Laurence and after the first couple of times I reminded her.

She apologized each time but then fell right back into it. Finally I asked her why she kept calling me "Drake."

She said, "I've never dated a guy named Drake and I've always wanted to and I hoped you'd be the one. But I guess I have to keep looking."

After that statement, I didn't even want to take her out for coffee anymore, so we finished our circuit of the pond and I told her that it was nice to meet her and that I had to go.

"So long, Drake," were her last words to me.
