Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! Today I will be posting my chapter of the project! I hope you enjoy!
Suddenly Coolcat was falling into a dark portal. She frantically looked around for Gracie, but she was nowhere to be found. Then suddenly, everything got bright. Coolcat figured it was her turn to face the unknown challenges ahead. As Coolcat exited the portal, she could hear music. The closer she got, the louder the music became. Right before Coolcat jumped out, she prayed quietly to herself, dear God, please help me with the unknown challenges ahead, amen. And with that, Coolcat jumped out of the portal.
Coolcat was blinded by the bright white light that had engulfed her. She had to rub her eyes a few times before she regained her vision. As soon as Coolcat could see again, she gasped in disbelief when she realized where she was. Coolcat said aloud, ''I'm on Titanic!" She looked around awkwardly as she realized everyone was looking at her. Coolcat brushed off everyone's glances as she looked at all of the ships beautiful details.
As Coolcat was looking around, she seen a group of men playing music. She thought to herself, that was the music I heard in the portal! After Coolcat listened to the band for awhile, she realized she was on the first class boat deck. Coolcat couldn't believe her luck to have been transported to Titanic! Coolcat has been obsessed with Titanic even since she saw the movie. She must have seen it over one hundred times. But Coolcat's excitement turned to sheer terror as she realized she forgot one major detail. Coolcat said quietly to herself, "Wait... I'm on Titanic... And Titanic sinks!"
Coolcat tried to calm herself down as she tried to think about what she should do first. Coolcat figured the first thing she should do is find out todays date and time. Then she could figure out how close she was to Titanic sinking. Coolcat started walking around on the boat deck to look for somebody to ask. As she was walking, Coolcat couldn't believe her eyes as she saw Officer William Murdoch patrolling the boat deck. As she approached him, to turned to her and said, "Good afternoon Miss."
At least I know its the afternoon, Coolcat thought to herself. Coolcat tried to hold in her excitement as she remembered she was in first class, and that she had to act like it. Coolcat responded, "Hello Officer Murdoch." Mr. Murdoch asked, "Is there anything I can do for you Miss?" Coolcat said, "Why yes there is actually." " Could you please tell me todays date and time?" He said of course, today is April 13th and the time is 3:30 pm.
Coolcat breathed a sigh of relief and said "Thank you, officer Murdoch." He responded, "Not a problem." Coolcat thought to herself, Titanic hit the iceberg on April 14th at 11:40 pm, and she sank on April 15th at 2:20 am. Coolcat breathed another sigh of relief thinking to herself, I have plenty of time to find the exit portal back home before Titanic sinks. With plenty of time to find the exit portal, Coolcat decided to enjoy her time on Titanic. As she wondered inside the ship, Coolcat seen a flyer on the wall. As she neared closer she read it aloud, it said:
First class dinner tonight at 7:00 pm. Ladies and gentlemen wear your finest attire.
Coolcat said quietly to herself, I am so unprepared for this, I don't even have a dre... But before Coolcat could finish her sentence, she looked down and noticed her modern clothes had been replaced with a beautiful dress.
Wow I cant believe this! Coolcat exclaimed.
Although Coolcat didn't know if the dress would fit the bill for dinner, it was still beautiful. Coolcat said aloud, " If I have this dress surely I have to have a room." Just as she finished her sentence, she noticed a key stuck in the ruffles of her dress. As she pulled the key out of her dress it had a piece of paper with her room information on it. It said, Deck B parlor suite room #235
Coolcat couldn't believe that she was assigned to one of the most luxurious rooms on Titanic. Her room was right near the Grand Staircase. Coolcat was so excited to see the Grand Staircase in person. The closer she got, the more beautiful is was. Although Coolcat would have loved to take in every detail of the Grand Staircase, she had to get ready for dinner.
As Coolcat neared her room, she got many strange glances from passengers on the ship. She figured it was because it was unheard of for a woman to go anywhere without a male escort, much less on a far journey such as Titanic. She brushed it off thinking, If Molly Brown can make the journey on Titanic alone without her husband, so can I. Coolcat also hoped she would run into Molly at dinner.
As soon as Coolcat opened the door to her room, she was mesmerized by how beautiful it was. Pictures didn't even come close to capturing the beauty of this ship. After wondering around her huge room, Coolcat started getting ready when she saw the clock had struck 6:00 pm. Coolcat wondered in her closet, and put on a gorgeous gown for the occasion. She didn't put any makeup on, as she was afraid of making herself look too modern. After some last minute finishing touches, it was time to descend down the Grand Staircase and head to dinner. Coolcat was worried that she would be confronted about not having an escort, but she reasoned that she would only worry about it if it happened. And with that Coolcat left her room, and headed for the Grand Staircase.
As Coolcat neared the top of the staircase, she jokingly thought to herself, I should keep an eye out for Jack and Rose. Who knows, she could be able to witness their iconic meet up before dinner. Coolcat descended down the Grand Staircase with poise and elegance. As she neared the dining room, she thought it would be a good idea if she could mingle, and find a friendly group to sit with. She also kept her eye out for historic Titanic figures, as well as Jack and Rose.
Coolcat was amazed to find that Molly Brown was sitting at a large table all by herself. She gathered up the courage to talk with her and see if she could eat with her. Coolcat walked up to her and said, "Excuse me, but are you Mrs. Molly Brown?" Coolcat watched as her face lit up in a smile and she said, "Why yes I am!" Coolcat was happy to see that she was just as kind in real life as she was in the movie. Coolcat said to Molly, "I am traveling by myself and have nobody to sit with, may I sit at your table?" Molly exclaimed happily, "Why of course!" She motioned for Coolcat to sit beside her, which she did happily. I am just waiting for the others, Molly said. Coolcat asked curiously, who will be joining us this evening? Before Molly could answer, a mans voice behind us said, why hello Molly.
Coolcat turned around and couldn't believe that captain Edward Smith was standing right in front of her. Why hello Captain Smith, said Molly. Captain Smith looked different from all the other men. He was dressed in a dark blue suit that had gold embellishments, and he had on his sailor hat. All the other men had plain black and white suits. Molly stood up and hugged Captain Smith. Coolcat followed suit and stood up to hug Captain Smith. Coolcat had to take a deep breath to stop from shaking in excitement. Coolcat hugged hum tight, remembering in the back of her mind what his fate would be in just over 24 hours.
After Coolcat hugged him, she gathered up the courage to engage in conversation with him. "Will you be dining with us this evening, Captain Smith?" Captain Smith frowned a bit and said, "Sadly I wont be dining with anyone." "I am just here to make sure all the passengers are being taken care of." I see, Coolcat responded. Take care ladies, Captain Smith said. We will, Molly said with a smile.
Slowly more and more people were joining Molly and Coolcats table. Soon they had Mr. Thomas Andrews, Bruce Ismay, John Jacob Astor, Madeleine Astor, and Ida and Isador Strauss. Coolcat couldn't believe that she was sitting with all these Titanic icons. Her favorite was Molly and Mr. Andrews, and she was sitting right in the middle of them. Through out dinner no one commented about Coolcat being alone, and nobody seemed to notice that she just appeared out of nowhere. It was like she just belonged. Coolcat stayed mostly quiet and just listened to everyone. By the time desert came Coolcat was stuffed. The food was absolutely delicious, and she enjoyed every bite. The dinner conversations were mostly about things Coolcat didn't understand, like politics in their day, sports, investments, and money. She just listened and laughed at jokes when everyone else did.
When nobody was talking, Coolcat said to Mr. Andrews, your ship is just marvelous Mr. Andrews, really. Thank you very much, he responded with a smile. Coolcat glanced over at Mr. Ismay and he was giving her dirty looks. While technically Mr. Ismay owned Titanic, Mr. Andrews designed it, which is why Coolcat complimented him. She also was thinking about when Mr. Ismay jumped into a lifeboat when Officer Murdoch wasn't looking, instead of staying behind to help fix the mess he helped cause. When everybody was finished with their desert the men headed off to the smoking room, and the women stayed behind to chat. This was a moment Coolcat would never forget and would treasure forever.
After the men had left to the smoking room, Coolcat thanked Molly for her generosity and left. As Coolcat was walking up the Grand Staircase back to her room, she stopped and looked at the clock. It was only 9:30 pm and she wasn't tired. Coolcat felt like she had so much more exploring to do first. She still hasn't even found Gracie or the portal. Coolcat decided she would go and explore the third class area. She heard there was a party and she wanted to check it out. Coolcat headed to her room to put on a more comfortable, less fancy dress. And with that, she headed below deck to the third class party.
Coolcat couldn't believe the difference from the first class to third class, and she wasn't talking about wealth. The third class people were loud, fun, and just happy. The first class people, although they were mostly nice, they seemed stuck up, Molly Brown and Mr. Andrews being an exception. Even though they could have anything they desired, most of the first class people deep down did not live a happy life. Even Coolcat started to get tired of acting proper, and she didn't even live the life of a first class person for six hours. Coolcat was excited to let loose and have fun.
The music was much different from the first class. The first class music was elegant and classy. The third class music was fun and danceable. Coolcat just jumped right into dancing. After dancing for what seemed like forever, Coolcat went to get some water then to sit and rest. After she got some water, Coolcat went to an empty bench in the back of the room to sit at. There was a young girl sitting there by herself with her head down. Coolcat said to her, "Do you mind if I sit here?" And the girl said, "No not at all." The young girl looked up at Coolcat, and the two couldn't believe their eyes when they saw each other. Gracie, is that you?! "Yes its me!" The two girls embraced in a hug. "Where have you been?" Asked Gracie. Coolcat responded, I was transported to the first class. Gracie said, "That makes sense, I was transported to the third class." "I tried to sneak upstairs but I got caught." Coolcat said, come on, I can get you up to my room. If your with me they can't send you back. Okay, Gracie said. And with that a portal opened up in front of the two girls.
Gracie said to Coolcat, "This is the way out!!" Coolcat responded, "But we can't go now!" Gracie said, "No Coolcat we have to go now." Coolcat said, lets sleep over then come back in the morning. Gracie said, well I would like to see what first class looks like in person. Coolcat didn't think Gracie would change her mind, and was shocked when she did. But before she could change her mind again, Coolcat grabbed Gracie and raced to her room.
The two girls went back to Coolcats room so Gracie could change into a fancy dress. After that the two girls started chasing each other down the halls. Nobody ever said anything, it was like they were invisible. The two girls didn't even realize that night turned into morning. By the time the two girls finished exploring the ship and playing around, it was 12:30 in the afternoon. The two girls didn't even care they stayed up all night and morning. They had plenty of time to rest then jump in the portal.
Or so they thought.....
By the time the two girls woke up, it was 1:45 am on April 15th. The two girls have somehow managed to sleep almost the whole day, and through Titanic hitting the iceberg. Coolcat and Gracie woke up to their bed moving. "What's going on?" Asked Gracie. "I don't know..." said Coolcat. Everything in the room started to tip downward. Suddenly Coolcat realized what was happening and jumped out of bed. She yelled to Gracie, "WE SLEPT THROUGH TITANINC HITTING THE ICEBERG!" Both of the girls panicked and raced down to third class to jump in the portal, but to their dismay is was nowhere to be found. Gracie asked panicked. "What are we going to do Coolcat?!" Coolcat responded, "Its too late to get into a boat they are all gone, and by now there aren't any lifejackets."
Both girls prayed out loud together. Dear God, help us find the portal again. We know we should have jumped in, instead of goofing off. Please help us, Amen. Both girls headed up onto the first class boat deck to see al the boats were gone. It was complete chaos on the boat deck, with people jumping into the water to people racing to the back of the ship as it was tipping deeper into the frigid waters below. Coolcat shouted to Gracie, "We need to get to the back of the ship!" Without waiting for Gracie's response, Coolcat grabbed her hand and raced to the back of the ship. Just then Titanic broke in half, and part of Titanic went under. Then the back half of the ship stood straight up. They must have been 500 feet in the air. They only had minutes until Titanic was completely under. Without lifejackets, they surely wouldn't survive the suction of the ship going down in the water. Just then way down below resting on top of the ocean was a portal. Coolcat said to Gracie, look there's a portal! We have to jump now! Gracie looked down at the portal then looked at Coolcat and said, "Are you crazy, I'm not going to jump!" And with that both of the girls heard a voice which could have only been God's voice, that said, "Jump, it'll be alright." And with that, both girls jumped from 500 feet in the air, and landed safely in the portal.
