Chapter five:

Jack Dawson's point of view:

After my strange encounter with the girl, Rose, I headed back to my cabin only to find mother sitting on the edge of my bed.

"What are you doing in here?" I asked.

For a few seconds mother just stared at me then she started to laugh.

"What do you think?" she asked. "Did you really think I wasn't going to come and check that you were really up here? I am your mother! I know your ways!"

I couldn't bear to look upon my mother's face any longer so I directed my gaze towards my feet.

"Where have you been?" she demanded, sharply.

"Up on the decks" I mumbled.

She scowled.

"Pray, tell me what you were doing up on the decks?" she asked.

I thought of Rose and how I found her dangling off the end of the boat. Then of Tommy and how he tried to attack me.

No I thought. I'd better not tell mother about that.

"Well?" she said.

"I just went for a walk" I said, weakly.

Mother shook her head. I could tell she didn't believe my pathetic excuse.

"If this marriage fails it will mean ruin for both of us" she said. "All the money is gone."

"Mother, I know" I said. "How could I possibly forget with you reminding me constantly?"

"You ought to watch your tone with me, young man!" she shouted.

"Don't speak to me as if I was a child!" I yelled back.

She stood up and struck me across the face. I gawked at her, shocked. Her face had gone red and her eyes were wide with anger. For a few moments we just stared at each other until she said;

"Do not spoil our last chance of happiness."

"You mean your last chance at happiness" I muttered.

Her jaw dropped and she stomped out of the room.

Jesus.

I hope you enjoyed that if you want more then REVIEW!
