Indirect speech (also called reported speech) is when we give the same meaning of what someone says without repeating the exact words. In this case, we do not use inverted commas and certain changes may be necessary:

David: I have to talk to you about something. (original statement)David said he had to talk to me about something. (indirect speech)

Direct speech is when we report what someone says by repeating the exact words. In writing, we use inverted commas:

David: I have to talk to you about something. (original statement)"I have to talk to you about something," said David. (direct speech)

difference between Direct and Indirect words :
direct speech is when we report what someone says by repeating the actual words of the speaker, while indirect speech is when we do not repeat the exact or actual words of the speaker
direct speech : Sam said, "i am doing my home work now"
indirect speech : Sam said that he was doing his homework then.
