“So how do we get their attention?” said Eduardo.
“I’m not sure,” said Darrius. “We tacked up fliers at the university, and I told everyone in my creative writing class. You did, too—right?”
Eduardo and Darrius sat for some time in silence, passing a joint back and forth.
“Why do you think your parents named you Darrius?” Eduardo asked.
“My mom told me once,” Darrius said. “Mom and dad wanted something different, and they got out a book with a lot of names in it, and Darrius stuck out for some reason.”
“I see,” said Eduardo.
“Yeah. That’s the reason,” said Darrius.
