I do not own Twilight or Titanic.
This ship was bigger than anything I had ever seen in my life and now because of an iceberg 2/3 its size, it was sinking. In another 30 minutes or so this ship would be at the bottom of the Atlantic, this humongous ship…the unsinkable titanic.
"It's only for the mommy's and children, sweaty. Daddy's have their boats waiting for them." I heard a man try to comfort his daughter as he tried to get her on a boat. I held rose tighter at the sudden realization that most people on this ship would not make it. If I don't get Rose to a boat now…I don't even want to think about what would happen.
Quickly we rushed through the crowd of people, suddenly I heard a gunshot. I quickly wrapped my arms around rose and pulled her to the side. Not exactly sure where it came from, I heard 2 more gun shots. What the hell is this? This isn't the time to start shooting at people. Rose started to cry and I concluded that everyone was losing their minds so I grabbed rose and quickly began looking for a boat to board. As we made our way to the back of the ship, it started to feel like we were climbing stairs. "We don't have much time" I thought, I didn't want to tell rose, so she won't get scared.
As we kept moving I saw a crowd of people assemble in one spot. "What's going on over there?" Rose asked
"I don't know"
We moved closer to check it out and I asked a man standing behind what had happened.
"Poor kid got shot." He said with pity in his eyes.
I moved through the crowd to see the kid who got shot and to my biggest dismay it was Tommy.
"Tommy!" I cried and went to his side joining the pale blond man that seemed to be treating him.
"Is he really bad?"
"I don't think he's going to make it" he said looking at me. At that moment I had two things run though my head. First, my friend was going to die and secondly, this man had gold eyes. I have never seen anyone with gold eyes in my entire life.
"How do you know?" I asked finally bringing myself back to the ship.
"I'm a doctor"
"A doctor?" He looked a little too young to be a doctor.
I looked back at Tommy. He was only the first of the thousands that would die tonight. I lost track of my thoughts when I heard Rose sniffle.
"It's going to be okay, rose."
"You two better get your selves to a boat and fast. This ship wouldn't be up too long" the doctor said.
I looked at Tommy one more time to give him my final farewell.
The ship was sinking fast we had to get ready for to hit the waters, so I led rose to the back of the ship. I climb over the stern rail and reach back for Rose, but she is terrified so I grab her hand gently.
"Come on! I've got you!"
I pull her over the rail. It is the same place I pulled her over two nights earlier, going the other direction, Of course. She gets over just as the railing is going HORIZONTAL, and the deck VERITCAL. I grip her tightly.
Rose lies on the railing, looking down fifteen stories to the boiling sea.
People near us, who didn't climb over, hung from the railing, their legs dangling over the long drop. They fall one by one, plummeting down the vertical face of the poop deck. Some of them bounce horribly off deck benches and ventilators.
I felt for The Poor souls.
The final relentless plunge began as the stern section floods. Looking down a hundred feet to the water, we drop like an elevator going down a 100 story building.
"Take a deep breath and hold it right before we go into the water. The ship will suck us down. Kick for the surface and keep kicking. Don't let go of my hand. We're gonna make it Rose. Trust me." I said
She stares at the water coming up at us, and grips my hand harder.
"I trust you."
My heart races as the freezing water rushes towards us. Holding Rose tighter, I shouted "Now"
We both took deep long breaths before being swallowed into the Atlantic.
I had promised jack I would survive this no matter what. I promised him I wouldn't give up. I held the blanket around me tighter as a cool breeze swept by the Carpathia
What was I going to do without him? I missed him so much. As tears slowly came down my cheeks, I closed my eyes to remember our last time together.
Jack had just gotten me on top of a floating piece of debris. He had tried to climb on too, but it was big enough for one person, so he rested his upper body on the edge of the plank.
I looked around at the wailing and screaming people trying to get the attention of the boats. I looked at Jack worried. What if they don't come back?
"The boats will come back for us, Rose. Hold on just a little longer. They had to row away for the suction and now they'll be coming back."
He said seeing my worried expression.
He's voice made me feel a little better, but I was still is shivering uncontrollably and my teeth were chattering.
"Thank God for you Jack." I managed to say.
"It's getting quiet." I say after a while of waiting for the boats.
"Just a few more minutes. It'll take them a while to get the boats organized."
I lay down looking at the stars. I know Jack was only trying to make me feel comfortable, but I knew the truth, the boats weren't coming back. All those evil people, how could they just leave us out here to DIE?
"I don't know about you, but I intend to write a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all this." Jack said
I laugh weakly, but it sounded like a gasp of fear. I looked up at him for the first time in a while and I stare into what I made out to be his eyes.
"I love you Jack."
He took my hand in his.
"No... Don't say your good-byes, Rose. Don't you give up? Don't do it."
"I'm so cold." I said. I just wanted to fall asleep. My joints hurt so much and I couldn't feel my whole body.
"You're going to get out of this... you're going to go on and you're going to make babies and watch them grow and you're going to die an old lady, warm in your bed. Not here. Not this night. Do you understand me?"
I wanted so badly to believe him, but I couldn't
"I can't feel my body." I said
"Rose, listen to me. Listen. Winning that ticket was the best thing that ever happened to me." He takes a deep breath to speak. "It brought me to you. And I'm thankful, Rose. I'm thankful."
"You must do me this honor... promise me you will survive... that you will never give up... no matter what happens... no matter how hopeless...promise me now, and never let go of that promise.
"I promise." I said. I was getting scared, I started having thoughts of jack dying here and leaving me by myself.
"Never let go." He said
"I promise. I will never let go, Jack. I'll never let go." I said.
After a while there was silence. I lay on my back watching the stars. My body was frozen and I could hardly talk to Jack. I had promised him to stay awake, so I tried my best, even though I knew the odds of me staying alive were slim.
"Come Josephine in my flying machine…" I started to mouth Jack's song when I felt a bright light on my face. It was a boat. I slowly turned onto my belly to wake Jack up.
"Jack" I said shaking his shoulders lightly.
I tried lifted his chip up and I could see the ice rimed on his face. I heart drops at the realization that Jack wasn't with me anymore. I wanted to give up and just lay there till I passed too, but I didn't, I had made a promise to Jack and I was going to keep that promise, that's the only way he'll be happy with me.
"I'll never let go. I promise." I said as I let him go as he slowly went down into the dark water.
I came back to the Carpathia and I looked at the officer standing in front of me.
"Dawson. Rose Dawson."
I could have saved that young man if I wanted to, but If you think about it, I could have saved everyone freezing in this ocean and then create a new clan of Vampires, but that's not how it works. I had to get over this growing compassion I had for this people, there was no way I could help them besides trying to keep them from falling asleep.
I swam gracefully in the water. To the humans it was freezing, but to me it was perfect, sadly I couldn't enjoy my time in here if I was just going to watch this people die.
After what seemed like hours, I saw a boat come back looking for survivors. I was ready to swim for it, but I decided to look for some survivors myself. Most were dead; in fact all I had checked so far were dead, until my ears got excited when I heard the first sound in forever. I turned around at the direction of the noise and saw the auburn haired girl I had seen earlier today with the blond boy. She was by herself. I watched her swim to one of the officers with a whistle around his neck and she began to blow on it to get the attention of the men on the boats. I started to swim towards her so I could get on a boat too when from the corner of my eye I saw someone come out of the water for air before quickly going back down. I quickly swam towards the person, swimming deeper so I could catch him and pulled him back out.
I recognized him to be the young man who was with the girl earlier and he had been horrified when I told him his friend couldn't make it.
I tried to check if he was alive. Barely. He was either dead or close to it.
I wanted to help him so badly. There were about fifteen hundred people in this water frozen to death, how could I not help one person?
What if he'll rather die, than be a vampire?
I wasn't sure what to do. It got me thinking about when I first turned Edward into a vampire. He didn't take it so well.
I looked back at the boy in my hands. He didn't have much time. Without thinking any further I pierced my teeth into his flesh.
