The golden sun, that was once high in the sky,
was now sinking into the horizon, sending a warm, orange glow throughout the
evening sky. The ocean glittered under the sunset, as a lonely figure leaned
against the bow rail. The chill of the April wind ruffled his blonde hair, as
his face which held a grim expression shone from the glow of the sunset. His
blue eyes as blue as the Atlantic Ocean held a hint of rejection and sorrow,
while he gazed down at the prow of the ship, watching the white foam crash
against it. The heavy black coat that he wore fluttered behind him from the
strength of the wind, as the only sounds heard was the Titanic
slicing through the ocean.
Jack closed his eyes briefly, as his mind was
telling him that a first class girl will never fall in love with him, as his
heart told him that deep down inside despite the fact that she rejected him
and that she went back with her fiancée he still had feelings for her. The
same feelings he had felt the moment he laid eyes on her a couple of days
earlier. Love. Love was something he thought he would never experience in his
life. Sure, there were girls before Rose, but none of them could ever compare
to her. Not Rose. Not the beautiful girl, who was trapped in her own world,
where she was to die, if she was not pulled free from her gilded cage. Jack
tried to save her, but he failed.
Rose was a unique persona special person. She
taught him what it feels like to love even if she did not feel the same way
for him. He had felt something special whenever he was around her, and he was
not aware of it at first, but once she rejected him, he felt the painful break
of his heart, knowing that he would never see her again. Never see her smile
or her eyes shining with happiness. He will never get to hold her hand again,
or laugh with her or dance with her. Not after she had told him to leave her
alone, moments earlier. The conversation that they had played in his mind over
and over, that he wished he had never met Rose, that way he would not feel the
way he felt at the moment, but as much as it hurt him, he was glad to at least
have spend some quality time with her even if it was a couple of short days.
His expression went blank, as he continued to gaze down at the ocean.
Rose, you're no picnic. You're a spoiled
little brat even but under all that, you're still the most amazingly,
astounding, wonderful girl woman, that I've ever known,
No! Let me try to get this out. You're amaz
look, I'm not an idiot, I know how the world works. I got ten bucks in my
pocket and I have nothing to offer you, and I know that. I understand, but I'm
too involved now. You jump, I jump, remember? I'm not turning away without
knowing that you'll be all right,
Well, I'm fine. Ill be fine, really,
Really? I don't think so. They've got you
trapped Rose, and you're gonna die if you don't break free maybe not right
away cause you're strong, but sooner or later that fire that fire that I love
about you, Rose, that fires gonna burn out,
Its not up to you to save me, Jack,
You're right. Only you could do that,
I'm going back. Leave me alone,
The last words that she had uttered to him
before she left plagued his mind. Leave me alone, those three words
held a painful meaning in his heart, that she no longer wanted to see him no
longer wanted anything to do with him. She just wanted their relationship to
be just as it was before they met. Before he saved her before he fell in love
Rose was in the dining saloon, along with her
mother, Lady Duff-Gordon, and the Countess of Rothes, who were discussing
Roses wedding plans.
Tell Lucille of the stationary incident, the
Countess of Rothes told Ruth, as she sat elegantly.
Well, of course the invitations had to be sent
back twice! Ruth said, holding the teacup in her hands. And the bridesmaids
dresses, let me tell you what an odyssey that has been. Rose decided that she
wanted lavender, and she knew how much I detested the color, so she did it out
Oh, if you only came to me sooner! Lucille
Duff-Gordon said, shocked to hear of the incident.
Rose ignored the conversation that the three
women were having, and she turned her head towards the next table, where she
found a little girl about six years old slouch against the chair, and saw her
mother teach her the proper way to sit, and Rose had then realized what she
was putting herself into. Did she really want to be bossed around for her
whole life? To be told what to do? To have her whole life planned for her,
whether she liked it or not? Rose closed her eyes and shook her head slightly.
She glanced down at the tea in front of her, and tipped it over slightly,
spilling the liquid on her fancy, velvet dress.
Oh, look what I've done, Rose uttered, as if
berating herself. May I be excused mother?
Ruth sighed and nodded her head.
Rose, you have to learn to be more poised, you
seem to be very clumsy lately,
Rose pressed her lips together and nodded her
head slightly, as she pulled her chair back and lifted herself from the seat.
Rose quickly left the dining saloon and went towards the third class entrance.
Surely, she would find Jack there. She carefully walked down the white steps,
where she heard loud music coming from the third class general room. Rose
stepped in, greeting the loud music, the murmuring, and the people dancing
around. She looked around, hoping to find Jack somewhere amongst the people
that crowded the room, but saw no sight of him. However, she caught sight of
the Italian and the Irishman that Jack knew, so she headed towards them.
Excuse me, Rose said, waiting to get either of
Fabrizio turned to her, surprised to find her in
the third class area yet again.
Ciao, signorina, Fabrizio said, smiling.
Umhi, have you seen Jack around?
S, he is a out on the bow, Fabrizio told her.
He's a thinking probably.
Rose pressed her lips together, realizing that
he was probably thinking about what she did to him earlier. Rose looked up at
him, giving him a small smile.
Before they could say anything, Rose turned on
her heel and rushed out of the third class general room and headed out on
deck, greeting the cold air, and heading towards the bow. There, she spotted
him leaning against the railing, looking down at the ocean. Rose took a few
steps closer, before she stopped and smiled. The chill of the wind brushed
against her face, causing for her red curls to flutter behind her, as the
shawl that she held in her arms danced in the wind.
Jack jumped up, as he heard her voice. Her sweet
voice, that he thought he would never hear again. He turned, facing her, as
his face still held the grim expression, but lightened at the sight of the
beauty before him. Her cheeks were pink from the cold, but despite that he saw
her smile, as she held a loving glow in her eyes.
I changed my mind,
Jacks lips curved as he heard the four words.
She was willing to be with him ending her misery. Jack felt his heart beat
rapidly against his chest, as he gazed over at her.
They've said you'd be up here Rose began.
Shhh, Jack silenced her, by pressing a solid
finger over his lips, still having that slight smile pasted across his face.
He then reached out his hand, with a playful look shining over his blue eyes.
Give me your hand.
Rose looked up at him, with a gleam in her eye,
as she stepped closer to him, placing her hand onto his, feeling his warm
touch tingle throughout her body. His fingers circled around her slim hand, as
he placed his other hand over her waist.
Now close your eyes, He said, raising his
eyebrows, as his eyes shone.
Rose looked up at him, confused. Was he going to
Go on! Jack urged, smiling.
Rose smiled gently and did as she was told, as
her eyelids covered her emerald-blue jewels that shone with contentment.
Jack held her hand in a tight grip, as he stood
Rose held a confused expression upon her face,
but stepped up nevertheless. She wobbled a bit, but she felt Jacks secure arm
around her, keeping her balanced.
Now hold onto the railing, Jack said. He stood
behind her, and looked over at her. Keep your eyes closed don't peek,
I'm not! Rose reassured, a soft smile spreading
across her face. She felt the wind brush against her face, and felt her heart
beat in anticipation.
She had never felt so alive as she did at the
moment. Being with Jack had made her feel that way made her feel as if she was
much more than just a rich girl, and that was one of the things that she loved
Step up onto the railing
Rose lifted her foot and placed it onto the
first rail, as her hand clutched onto the top of the railing. She was bent
over her eyes closed but once she had both feet on the bottom rail, she let go
of her grip on the top rail and stood up. She was shaking at first, but she
felt Jack come up behind her, holding onto her waist.
Hold on hold on keep your eyes closed,
Jacks face brightened, as he stood behind her
his feet on the rail as he balanced her. He felt his blonde hair flutter
gracefully against the strength of the wind, as the chill crashed against his
face. He heard Rose let out a soft giggle, as he saw that her eyes remained
Now, he only needed to know one thing. He needed
to know if Rose trusted him that whatever happens, that she will know that he
would never hurt her. Jack smiled softly, as he held onto her wrists softly.
The sound of the ocean crashing up against the Titanic was heard, as
she made her way through the Atlantic, heading towards New York. He pressed
his cheeks softly against hers, taking in the scent of her perfume.
Do you trust me? Jack uttered, his voice soft
Rose felt his warm breath against her skin,
leaving a tingling feeling against her face. She smiled softly and knew that
she had. She had trusted him the moment he had rescued her, and there was no
way she was going to doubt that trust. She felt the wind crash against her and
felt her heart flutter within her chest.
I trust you, Rose said, her voice holding a hint
of truth and certainty.
She would forever trust Jack with whatever
happened in the world. She loved him, that she knew for sure. She had never
felt this way towards Cal. What she had for Jack was special and unique and
she would not give it away for the world. She gave her trust for Jack, and
with that, she gave him her heart.
Jack smiled and extended her arms out on her
sides. He noticed Rose turn her head towards him in confusion, but he just
smiled and straightened her arms, until they stayed spread out like wings. Her
shawl fluttered behind them, and Jack placed his hands on her waist, steadying
All right, Jack whispered in her ears, gazing
out at the horizon. Open your eyes.
Rose pressed her lips together in anticipation,
as she slowly fluttered her eyes open. She let out a soft gasp as she saw the
view before her. She felt as if there was nothing below her that there was no
ship it was as if she were flying, with Jack right behind her.
I'm flying! Rose uttered, a smile on her face.
Her head turned towards him. Jack,
He smiled and reached out to her hands that were
still spread out like wings, placing his hand over hers, as their fingers were
beginning to intertwine. He then pressed his cheek against hers.
Come Josephine, in my flying machine going up
she goes, up she goes,
Rose smiled, letting out a soft giggle as she
heard Jacks soft voice sing in her ear. His breath blew against her skin, as
their hands intertwined. The wind continued to blow their hair and flutter her
shawl behind them. Rose turned to face Jack, who was gazing down at her with a
serious, but loving gaze. He placed her arms down in front of her, as his own
was still holding her.
Jack gazed lovingly down at her, watching as her
emerald jewels shone brightly under the sunset. He leaned his face closer to
her, hesitant at first, but within seconds his lips were pressed gently over
hers. Their kiss was soft at first soft and innocent but soon had deepened as
Rose placed her hand behind his neck, and as he held Rose close to him. Their
kiss had then deepened and grew intense, as Jack had known that he truly did
love Rose. That his heart would belong to no one other than the woman that he
One thing had made Jack know that Rose was the
right one for him that she was made for him. One thing that he longed to hear
from her. That one thing was trust. He had then known that Rose trusted him.
She had given him her trust, and that made him know that she did not doubt
him. That she believed that he would not hurt her in any way possible.
The two lovers soared through the sunset,
sharing their true loves first kiss, as all worries had escaped them as the
world surrounding them vanished, bringing them only aware of each other. Of
their love and trust for one another. Trust was what kept their love
strong. Trust was what made them believe that they would never doubt their
love for one another, and that no matter what happens in life, they will
always trust each other. That was one thing that the two had cherished trust.
