    Patrick Kellerman



    Patrick was also incredibly impressed by the Titanic. Sure, he was travelling third class, but still. It was a grand ship, and even the lower class accommodations were beautiful. The rooms were decent, he couldn't see any rats, and it all seemed pretty clean and well kept.

    After roaming all of the third class, the boy managed to sneak out to the second class. He had never been in a ship before, and by God, he would see everything there was to see, even if he happened to get caught. It would be well worth it for the memories he would make from seeing everything there was to see about the majestic Titanic.

    Nobody bothered with him in the second class, so the boy decided to try a more daring move. After taking a deep breath and making sure he wouldn't get caught, Patrick made his way into the first class areas, curious to see what they had up there. Since he wouldn't dare go anywhere near the restaurant and other closed areas, the boy stayed on the outer deck, looking down at the ocean and up at the birds with a fascinated expression. The Titanic was, indeed, a grand ship.

    Esther Callaghan



    Esther was also happy to have met Anna and Kellen. They were really nice. Anna was sweet and energetic, and Kellen was polite and well... very handsome, if she had to admit. Of course, she also tried not to think too much of it. They would spend only a few days together, and then each of them would go on their way, after all. For now, though, they were here on the Titanic and could spend some time together.

    She smiled when Anna said her parents always wanted them to make new friends.

    "Well, they sound like lovely people", she replied, feeling safer already with the idea of making friends with a large family.

    When Anna said the ship was like a floating city, Esther laughed. The little girl was so delightful. It was refreshing to talk to her and see her enthusiasm. "They do have great things here indeed", she replied with a grin.

    "I bet they will, but you can tell them everything about the Titanic, and how great your trip was", she replied to the girl. Anna was so sweet she could see her making a ton of new friends as soon as she set foot ashore. She was just that kind of person. And with her family around her, Anna would surely be safe and happy. Her own fate was a lot more uncertain, Esther thought with a sigh. Still, it wouldn't do to dwell on sad things now. She had a new little friend to spend time with, after all.

    Walking a few steps behind them both when they got closer to the family, Esther decided to give them time to introduce her, as she didn't want to intrude.

    Kellen Ashby



    Anna was having lots of fun talking to Esther and Kellen decided that she would become a fond memory of his voyage on the Titanic. After all, the Titanic was to arrive in New York on the 17th. They would only have a week together. Still, he'd enjoy his time with the young woman as long as he could before life took them separate ways when they arrived in America.

    "They are good people and they'll like you."

    Kellen told Esther and Anna nodded his head. He didn't add how much his mother hated the idea of the voyage. He didn't want to bring it up in front of Anna and worry her that they weren't safe.

    "Yeah, and then maybe they'll be able to sail on it too."

    Anna said, she was sure as nice as the ship was already, the Titanic would very popular for years to come. Before Kellen could add much more to the conversation, he heard his parents arguing.

    "I'm getting off at Cherbourg, Jonas, and that's final."

    Mary said and Jonas replied.

    "Dammit, Mary, I didn't spend our life savings on these tickets for you to hightail it in France. And what about our children?! We're going to America. All of us, as a family!"

    "I don't want to go to America. I don't want to be on this ship. I want to go back home!"

    "There is no home now!"

    Jonas yelled back and Mary stormed out of their room, with her suitcase in hand. She had overheard two crew members saying that the Titanic would be arriving Cherbourg in a little while. They would have been there sooner, if not for the delay with the 'incident'. To pick up more passengers and let off a few. She needed to get off this ship. Right away. She knew trying to talk to Jonas about it was like trying to talk to a brick wall. Mary stopped in tracks when she saw two of her children with a young woman she hadn't meet before. Anna looked at her.

    "Mummy?"

    "Hello, sweetie."

    Mary said and Kellen gave her look. He knew she was scared of the Titanic, she had told him as much. Jonas was right behind her and Mary took a deep breath. She was never one to argue in front of her children.

    "Who is this? A new friend?"

    Mary asked, nodding her head to Esther. Anna nodded her head.

    "Yes. This is Esther she is traveling all by herself to America."

    "I see. It is nice to meet you, Esther."

    Mary replied and felt defeated. In her selfish need to escape, she hadn't thought of her children. They would still be on the ship. What a horrible mother she was. Putting her own fear in front of them.

    Noah Anderson



    The first class accommodations were everything the White Star Line had advertised and more to Noah. It was a great way to travel, although in about a week they would be in New York and then...Noah sighed, he didn't want to think that basically the Titanic was a very fancy way to travel towards his prison sentence. He wasn't looking forward to marrying Regina at all. His grandfather seemed to pick up on that slight cloud of depression and suggested they see look at the sea, see what animals they could see.

    As they got to the outer deck, Noah and James saw Patrick. The young man looked very out of place on the First Class decks. From his clothing, it was easy for both men to see that he belonged at the Third Class accommodations. They approached him and Noah said.

    "Young man, you might want to head back before the crew sees you."

    While neither man thought it was big deal that Patrick was here, they also knew not everyone would think the same. The ship was divided by class and some First Class people might be pretty offended that steerage was on their decks.

    d with him in the second class, so the boy decided to try a more daring move. After taking a deep breath and making sure he wouldn't get caught, Patrick made his way into the first class areas, curious to see what they had up there. Since he wouldn't dare go anywhere near the restaurant and other closed areas, the boy stayed on the outer deck, looking down at the ocean and up at the birds with a fascinated expression.

    Esther Callaghan



    Esther nodded when Kellen told her his parents would like her. She was glad she would have company during the trip to America, as she wouldn't be alone, and would definitely feel safer having people around her. As she didn't have a family, Esther thought she could imagine for a moment that these people were her family. One could imagine, right? "I am sure I will like them as well", she finally replied.

    Looking at Anna, Esther nodded at her comment about her new friends being able to sail on the Titanic. "Yes, I believe so. I'm sure they will love it...".

    Esther was about to say something more, but she froze on her tracks, hearing someone arguing. It seemed that she had gotten here at the wrong time, Esther thought to herself, staying behind with Anna, hoping she would be able to shield the little girl from what seemed like a pretty dramatic situation.

    When the woman addressed her, Esther blushed, feeling as though she was intruding. Her first impulse was to rush away from there and pretend she had seen nothing. It was too late for that, though. "It is nice to meet you as well, madam", she replied timidly and respectfully, before taking a look at the whole family. It was clear the girl was confused and unsure of what she should do to help, if at all possible.

    "Would you... like to talk a little, madam?", she finally asked timidly, feeling that Mary could use a venting session with someone who wouldn't judge her by being afraid of the Titanic.

    Patrick was so fascinated with the seagulls and what he could see in the water it took him a while to notice that he wasn't alone. The boy nearly jumped in place when he heard the voice of a man approaching him.

    From the man's intonation, the boy noticed that it wasn't anyone who would tell him to rush back to his own class. At least not in the terms one of the crewmen would use. Still, he had been seen, and there wasn't much he could do now. If someone had seen him, it was indeed better to go back down now.

    "Yes, sir, of course", he replied, nibbling on his lower lip. It was obvious he was curious, but at the same time somewhat nervous. He really should not be there, after all. "You will not tell the crew I am here, will you, sir?", the young man dared, wanting to stay there just for a while longer before going back down to Third Class and staying there for the rest of the trip.
