“I can't wait to get started” I say as I look at the Titanic. I look at it in awe thinking about this wonderful journey I’m about to begin. I am as excited as a clown! I walk into the ship and immediately see the captain. He welcomes all of the staff on board. Then he started to talk. “ Welcome aboard the Titanic I am Captain Edward Smith and I will be sailing the Titanic. I will show you all your cabins one by one. First up are the maids!” I follow him just like all of the other maids. While we are walking I see someone familiar. It's Alice! She is my best friend and lives in my same neighborhood! I yell her name and she sees me. We talk and walk until we reach our cabins. The captain calls the number and the two people who will be sharing it.” 108 Anna and Alice.” We both smile as we walk into our cabin. We change into our uniforms and start to greet and help  travelers.

 

While I am helping travelers find their cabins, I bump into the most attractive man I have laid my eyes on. “ Oh my goodness! I am so sorry. Is there anything I can help you with?”

”No I'm good and you don’t have to apologize for bumping into me. And actually now that I’m thinking I do need one favor. After your shift is over may I see you again?”

” Of course! My shift gets over in one hour.”

”Great! And also don’t eat your dinner just come straight to me. And meet me at the 1st class dining room  and dress to impress.” Then he walked away. Wow he was really handsome. Good thing I brought my nicest dress. But then it hit me. Maids are not allowed to eat with passengers. I have a wig but I don’t have makeup.

 

I put on my dress and my wig. For maids it was instructed for us to keep our hair up. I would have worn my hair down but I think one of the staff would notice me. The wig had very curly hair running down my shoulders. I don’t think the man would notice I have a wig on. I had to walk quickly but cautiously hoping that no staff noticed me. Luckily no one did. I feel like I am on top of the world. 1st class is so nice and beautiful. Staff keep welcoming me on board. When I come to the dinning room I see him waiting outside. He sees me and walks over.”Hi! Sorry I didn’t tell you my name before. My name is Joseph Johnson. What's yours?”

”Anna Jones.”

”What a beautiful name. Let’s sit shall we?” We sit down and the waiter asks us what we want. After the waiters goes I ask him a very important question.”Why did you want to meet me?”He sighs and says.

”I wanted to meet you again because… you seem pretty nice and pretty attractive. Your beautiful green eyes and attractive brown hair.” I blush. We keep talking until our food comes. After we get done eating. We walk on the deck and talk. We talk about our past.”I was a poor girl. I only had one friend named Alice. Even through college we have an inseparable relationship. My mom could barely afford a small apartment. The only reason I am working on the Titanic is because I couldn’t afford a ticket so I came on here for a free ride to New York. ”

”My life was different, I was a very rich boy from a wealthy family. But I didn’t have a lot of friends either.”  Then he walks me back to the elevator (since guest aren't allowed in staff areas).”So can you see me on the 14th? I can’t see you on the 11th,12th,or the 13th because I have to be at meetings all day with my co-workers.”

”Sure! Could we meet on the deck then we go to the 1st class dinning room after my shift?”

”Sounds fantastic! See you then!”

 

The next day is VERY boring. I feel as if I am sitting in  a waiting room bored out of my mind. Being a maid is very hard to. People ask for your help,you have to clean,staff asks you questions,you ask other staff questions,you have to go up and down the ship millions of times. I have to get up at 2:00 a.m and my shift ends at 4:00 p.m. Alice has to get up at 6:00 a.m and her shift ends at 8:00 p.m. I could not stop thinking about Joseph though. His beautiful brown eyes and hair.

 

The following day, is quite interesting. A butler comes down and tells me a traveler needs some cleaning. At first I thought nothing of it. Just a traveler needing something. I knock then I come in. There is no one in here. I check the room just to make sure that someone did need me.”Hello are you the maid I asked for?”

”Yes” I say. It is a older woman she was reading a book about Abraham Lincoln.

”I didn’t need you to clean for me I want you to sit down and listen to me.” I sit down at the table.”I can sense the future. The Titanic is going to sink in 3 days time.” I stare at her in shock.

”Really?! Should I tell the captain this for your sake?”

“No please don’t. But you may tell one person. Joseph you have a special connection with this man like no one else on this ship. Tell him and warn him he will not tell anyone else. Be prepared with chaos. Be wary of your surroundings and you will see me again. Don’t be concerned about anyone else but you and Joseph. And don’t forget I have faith in you Anna.” I had so many questions to ask her but she disappeared as I looked up from under the table. I walk away concerned about the future. Thinking about what she told me.

”And don't forget I have faith in you Anna.”

 

The next two days are even more hard and tiring. We had a food crisis that we were running out of food because someone didn’t order enough food. So multiple people had to go fishing on deck. I honestly didn’t think it wouldn’t work because the ship is moving but it actually did work. Then they had a better idea they had a big net that they put in the water then they got bigger loads.

 

Today was the day that the Titanic would sink. After I was done working I put on my wig and dress and went on the deck. I told Joseph about what that lady told me.”What? Really well I guess we should stay on deck.”

”Agreed.” So we eat then we go back on deck and talk. As we talk I see the old lady reading a different book about George Washington.”Hi do you remember me?”

”Oh yes you are Anna and I am guessing this is Joseph? What did you want from me?”

”I need to ask you questions. How did you know mine and Joseph’s names and how did you know the Titanic will sink?”

”Like I said I can sense the future that's how I predicted your names and how the Titanic will sink. You were the only ones who I could sense that would believe me.” Scrappppp. As soon as she said that a scraping noise begins an iceberg hits the Titanic. A few pieces of ice land on the ship's deck and the whole ship stops. Some children are now playing with the little pieces of ice. Some of the crew are running around asking what happened. I look at the old lady.” And so it has begun.” The old lady says.

 

A whole crowd of people start to come. Then a staff member comes up and says they are loading women and children first. I look at Joseph. We both look at each other. Our tears start piling up. But then I got an idea.”Hey what if you went in while nobody was looking?”

” Fantastic!” We find a boat that isn’t that full. The staff member isn’t looking so I tell  Joseph to get into the boat then I go in. All of the people in the boat look at Joseph. I give him my wig that I am wearing.”You wore a wig?!”

”It’s a long story.”

 

We watch the Titanic sink. We hear the screams,cries.silence,everything. I think about Alice hoping she's ok. We go back to see if there are any survivors. None. It’s either they're all frozen to death or they sunk with the ship or in the ship. We wait until the Carpathia arrives.” Anna I know we just met but will you marry me?”

”Of course!” The Carpathia arrives and we go to sleep immediately.

 

When we get to New York we purchase a big nice house. In the future we hope to have kids. But when ever we think about the Titanic we cry. We think about the screams,cries,silence,everything. We think about the people. If it wasn’t for that mysterious old woman we could have been dead. We thank her for everything she has done for us. We pray for the people who died and who have been there and saw it. We think about our journey. I will not ever forget about the Titanic and what it had done for us.
