Cherry downed her third soda at her favorite soda bar.
"Whoa,slow down a bit, why don't you?" Cherry turned to face her new friend. Her new best friend standing there, smiling at her. Without asking and knowing he didn't need to, he pulled out the chair next to her and sat down.
"Is it true? Did you legally change your name to Cherry? All the guys at work our talking about it." Cherry rolled her eyes, but there was a twinkle in them.
"Oh,that. Yes, I did. Cherry just seems to fit me better, don't you think?"
"I don't know. I liked your old name."
"You don't even know it."
"Sure, I do. Before you legally changed your name to Cherry, your name was Patricia."
Cherry almost choked on her soda. They clinked glasses together. Just as Cherry was going through her purse to pay for her drinks, a note fell out.
She picked it up and read it. It read: You may have may won this time, but you won't be so lucky next time." Cherry grinned and thought, "Oh, Dayton Pierce, you never learn, do you?"
