4. Captain Smith ~ Three

April 10, 1912, 6:11pm

"All systems seem to be a-good sir!," my first mate, William McMaster Murdoch, with his rugged Scottish accent exclaimed. Will looked at the levels of the ship. Will was a man of 39 years who had a bright eye for the open sea. He has training on the best ships to sail (until Titanic, obviously). A good man. A bright man.

Henry Tingle Wilde, the chief of all six officers on deck, stands behind Will inspecting his work. Lieutenant Wilde was also a man who loved the sea. He has worked for White Star Line for a couple of years. Titanic was his latest sea adventure. Henry was a man from Liverpool who knew everything about modern sea travel.

My other 5 officers run around the small control room writing data read on the meters, sending telegraphs to port, and checking schedules. In charge of route and safety of the ship and her passengers, they were busy as can be.

As captain of a grand ship as Titanic, I am in the place of honour to take care of her as first in charge.  I may be 62, nearly double the age of my officers in the room, but my love for the sea and adventure is mutual. If Titanic falls, I fall with her, but Titanic was the ship of dreams. None was bigger than her beauty and size. Not even God can push her. As my officers and I sail off to New York, I promise to keep all of my passengers safe since their safety is as important as my life to me.

If something pushes Titanic over her edge, my life shall be taken with her. A good captain dies with honour with his ship.
