Indigo

Indigo ’92. My boat moored at the pier, meters away from the bridge.

I named it after my girlfriend. She was a rare beauty, I mean both the boat and my lady.

I don’t do things in half’s, I demand the best at all times.

Blond hair, bold blue eyes and a surfboard belly, steady on land, smooth on the sea. I mean the girl, not the boat. My Indigo.

‘Honey did you put enough ice in the bucket, you know I like my wine quite chilled.’

‘Sure did babe.’

The last drops trickled down his throat as she vanished.

  1. In England: ‘Double (“…”) and single (‘…’) quotation marks or inverted commas (you can use either term) can be used in the same ways. Whether you use double or single is up to you.

    You could use double for quotations and single for titles. This is what we do in Writing for University Courses. It can help the reader to see which are quotes and which are titles.

    Whatever you do you must be consistent, i.e. do it all the way through your piece of work. This is partly because it looks better, but also to avoid the reader being confused.’

    Personally I use double for speech and single for quotations, but if you’re English they are interchangeable providing you are consistent 🙂
