Titanic - 100 years later
Location - Southampton
Time - Early morning
Year - 1912
Titanic which belonged to the White Star Line was a huge ocean liner
that set sail on her maiden voyage on April 10, 1912 at 7.30 in the
morning from Southampton. Four days later, she hit an iceberg in the
North Atlantic and sank. This ship was deemed unsinkable but when she
sank in the deepest area of the ocean, she took with her an elite 2,200
passengers with the crew. However, 700 survived.
Port side of the Titanic
When the Titanic glided over the azure blue sea with the rich and the
famous, a young heiress was on deck watching the waves slashing against
the ocean liner in the fading light of the evening. Moments later, she
looked up only to meet the eyes of a young Russian runaway, Ramonov who
for the moment was undetected.
They both fell in love instantly and the four ensuing days found them
inseparable. A collector of art, Julia was showing off her collection to
her new-found love when their ship rocked violently.
Suddenly sensors were triggered by the glare of an intense chill. It
was an iceberg bouncing towards the Titanic. A massive high pressure
system hovered over, stretching deep across the vast ocean unimpeded
until it struck with great ferocity which sent the unsinkable giant
gradually but quickly down to fathoms unknown.
Thousand five hundred were devoured by the still waters and among
them Julia and her Ramonov. The scene was a tumultuous sea with steep
waves over which rose their spirits.
In the stretch of the Atlantic, a storm was cohering into a
sprawling, swirling mass and unknown to the survivors who were battling
with the angry waves, Julia and Ramonov glided over the waves unto
eternity. - Gwen Herat
