Titanic Survivor, WINNER
by Sarina Edwards, age 11
"What did he just say." I said to my buddy Horace Rodgers on this fateful day,April 15 1912.
"Is it really happening."
"I believe it is."
"The titanic will sink."
"We have to get to a lifeboat."
That is when we hear the man shouting women and children only. We start to run around the deck as fast as we can until we see a spare lifeboat for wealthy men.
"Well come on man we must hurry on the boat."
"Don`t you see, that boat is for wealthy men, only you can go not me."
"Well I will not leave without you. We have been chums since our first year of school and now that we are 34 that is not going to change anything."
" But you must go do not worry I will be fine."
"No you`re coming with me and that is final."
So then Horace sneaks me on and we think we`ll be fine until CRACK the ship starts breaking in half while we are being lowered down.
"We can make it ,just hold on tight." I yell as we drop 68 feet to the water and amazingly I was right until I see all the people in the water.
"We`re never gonna make it,"
"Yes we will, don`t give up hope now, we have already been through so much."
"You`re right , lets do it." and we paddle through all the people making it out unturned.
"Our lives are spared yet again, Horace."
"I know, isn`t it a miracle.
"Yes it is."
"What is it?"
"I forgot my wallet!"
"Horace, really you can buy another."
"But it was Italian leather."
"This is going to be a long trip."
