Chapter 10

'It's here! It's here!' squealed Chloe as she flew off her chair and out the doors onto the deck. With ponytails streaming behind her and little legs pumping she raced down the stairs and out ontothe wharf that fronted Ethan's house.

'What's up?'

'Beats me?'

Imogen and Darlene followed at a sedate pace both in the dark as to what "It" was.

"It" was a cruiser. At the helm was Ethan with a beaming smile practically splitting his face, his captain's cap at a jaunty angle.

'The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.' Darlene muttered.

'Or is that size.' Imogen added for good reason.

They arrived at the end of the jetty just as Ethan maneuvered the sleek vessel rather roughly to stop beside them.

'Good thing it's got bumper thingos.' Imogen noted dryly, only just loud enough for a return snort from Darlene.

'Ahoy there, me hearties. Hey, wench! Catch this and make it fast.' Ethan's pirate accent was painful to hear.

As for what did he want me to do fast? Thought Imogen.

'Tie it up!' came the exasperated command in response to her nonplussed look.

'Oh you mean tie up the tinny.'

'A tinny! A tinny. This…my dear, is a boat.'

The desired affront achieved Imogen wound the thick rope around the pylon and made it fast.
