A Titanic Novella
Publication Date: 1st December 2017
Genres: New Adult, Historical Romance
Aubrie was a bright girl who dreamed of traveling the world. It was 1912, in the city of Belfast, Ireland.
Sadly, tragedy stuck so close to home that her relatives wanted their small family to start a new life in America.
After giving the Flanagan family tickets to board the RMS Titanic, Aubrie never imagined her life would change forever.
Surviving the sinking of the Titanic, she began her new life in America.
With the help of the wonderful woman who adopted her, the two embarked on a new journey together.
What Aubrie didn’t know was that her adventure was just beginning.
Her new mother had no choice but re-marry and their family expanded but at a great cost.
Does Aubrie’s life finally feel complete again or does she endure more pain and suffering?
I’m sitting on the lifeboat and I keep scanning the crowd to find my mother and brother but I’m coming up empty. I look down at Ted and send a silent message to God. “Please God, have my family sent back to me. I miss them.” I can feel the tears start rolling down my cheeks, what if I can’t find them?
I feel the lifeboat jolt and suddenly, it’s being lowered down. I jump up to my feet, ready to leave the boat when a lady grabs my waist and pulls me back down.
“What do you think you’re doing?” she asks me. This lady is wearing one of the prettiest dresses I’ve ever seen and she has a small suitcase next to her. When she looks down at me, her face is showing fear and concern.
“I have to go and find my mom and brother.” I tell her. I am determined to go and try to find them.
“No, you are not going anywhere young lady.” Her voice is firm. My mom has raised me to respect adults and so I do as I’m told and take a seat. This unknown woman pulls a blanket out of her suitcase and drapes it over my shoulders.
“Thank you,” I whisper to her.
I turn to her and take in her appearance. She has long brown hair that’s styled in a braid, her brown eyes are wide with shock, and she has a beauty spot just below the right corner of her eye. She is very pretty, beautiful really.
The lifeboat hits the water and the two men in this boat are rowing away from the Titanic as fast as they can. After we have gone a good distance away from the ship, all we can do now is sit and wait.
“What is your name?” the lady asks me.
“Aubrie, what is your name?” She seems to be on her own like me.
“Margaret. It’s nice to meet you Aubrie.”
