Will We Survive?

It’s sinking, the said-to-be unsinkable Titanic is sinking! I can’t believe I thought we would be safe, I should never have come on this trip!

It all started 3 days ago when I boarded the Titanic.

I don’t know what to think, I am on the Titanic that cost 7.5 million dollars to build.I have one of the best rooms that I am sharing with the love of my life, Thomas, and I am going to America with my amazing parents. Thomas and I got married 3 months ago and decided to go to America, have a honeymoon, and possibly live there forever. Thomas will get a job as a construction worker and I will be an actress.

When I am boarding the huge ship that is staring down at me in France, I can’t help but jump up and down wanting to find my room, which is beautiful, it has2 private bathrooms and 2 wardrobes. The food here is also amazing, you get 10 courses of gourmet deliciousness.While I eat dinner I tell my dad this hilarious joke which is causing his drink to come out of his nose.

So, I have been on the Titanic for four days and I wish it was my home, it is so amazing. I keep getting lost and not being able to find my room. Oh, finally, my room!

“Goodnight, Tom, my sweetheart.” I say.

“Goodnight.”

First, I was starting to wake up to a scraping noise and the ship stopping and starting again. The ship then tilted a little to one side and I started freaking out.

“Thomas, wake up! There’s something wrong with the ship!”

Then,I start to pack all my belongings and grab a lifejacket. I went to the room next to mine to get my parent’s and their belongings. When we start to walk up the stairs I got lost in the midst of people and had to find my family.

After that, I start finding everyone and putting my life jacket on just in case something doesgo bad. The people standing around me are yelling for their family and sending people off into lifeboats.

“We better find a boat, Frances.”

“Great idea mom,” I reply.

After I found a lifeboat, my family was starting to get in, but I can’t find my Dad so I was walking around looking for him.

“Frances get in here!”

“I can’t find my Father!” I say

“Just get in here before it’s full!” Thomas is shouting.

Sadly, I wasn’t able to find my father so I am walking to the lifeboat, only to find that it already started going down and I had to jump in.

“AHHHH!!”, I scream as I jump in.

After I finish telling my side of the story in the lifeboat and everyone on the boat told theirs, I was pinching myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

“Where’s your father Frances?” my mom questioned.

“I’m not sure mother, I tried looking for him but I couldn’t find him in time, I hope he makes it.”

Later on, I am sitting in the lifeboat when I see my dad, or who I think is him, jump off the boat into the water. I don’t know if who I think he is him came up or not because a lot of people were jumping off the boat.

Sadly, the 48,328 ton Titanic is sinking deeper and deeper into the water and it has only a little bit left, then it will be gone forever. The silence that is happening right now is tremendous, the only sound is the splashing of the waves against the boats. Each time the icy wind freezes my face, I long to be in my room sleeping in the warmth of my blankets.

“Mom, I’m scared, what are we going to do?” I ask.

“I’m not sure honey.”

It’s gone, the Titanic is now gone and everyone is going to be sitting here for who knows how long. A bunch of men that jumped from the ship earlier are either in a lifeboat or have froze to death and are sinking. I was not able to find my dad in the thick of people soI was practically bawling my eyes out.

After what is feeling like forever, a ship called the Carpathia is coming up to the survivors in all of the lifeboats and was picking us up, I was sitting down on the Carpathia with my family. Nobody is talking on this ship because of the horrible experience that was just hours before. The next few days on the trip to New York were a sad blur.

A few days later, the Carpathia arrived in New York and Thomas and I will fly to Cancun, Mexico for a honeymoon. When we come back, we might live in New York so I can get a job as an actress and Thomas can be a construction worker like he’s always wanted.

Every single time I see a boat or a body of water, I think about the Titanic and how horrific that experience was. I will not go on a boat for at least a year so I know I can be safe.

One thing I’ll never forget when I was on the Titanic was when my dad was drinking and I told him a joke and his whine came out of his nose. My dad either jumped off the Titanic and drowned in the frigid water, or sank with the boat. I really wished he stayed with us and came on the lifeboat so their would be at least one more survivor. My dad will be missed terribly but will never be forgotten.
