-the never heard of legend...a true romantic
Annie Meek was born in Ireland in 1895. Her parents were William and Mary Meek. Her father died when she was 10 years old, right after her sister Jenny was born. Her other sister, Kathryn was 2 years younger than her. Annie grew up as a poor little girl. After her father died, her mother was forced to work in the factories which left Annie at home to care for her sisters. In 1910, Annie's mother fell ill and she had to work in the factories to support her family. In 1911, her mother suddenly died, leaving Annie to do everything. She hated her life and she wanted it to be like a fairytale. She had one book that she read over and over again. It was about a girl who escapes from her pain on a ship with the love of her life. Outside of Annie's makeshift attic bedroom, there was a harbor. There were many ships that she wished would take her away from the pain she suffered. She hated the factories too. She saw too many things that shouldn't be mentioned. During her time working while her mother was still alive, a man named John Davies had come to her house selling things. She instantly fell in love with him. His younger brother, Joseph, and older brother, Alfred, were along. Joseph instantly fell in love with Annie. John came back several times more to help Annie with her home. John was a truly kind man.
After Annie's mother died, John wrote Annie more often. They stayed in touch. In September of 1911, John asked Annie to marry him. He wanted to save her from this life he had seen her despise so much. His uncle, James Lester, had bought John and his brothers tickets aboard Titanic. The entire Davies family would catch up later. Annie quickly agreed. Annie was to go on the 8th of April. She waited to tell her sisters until the very day she left. Her sister Kathryn was very upset. She argued that she would have to work in the factories now and that that wasn't fair because she was only 15. "Kathryn, I was 10 when dad died. I have taken care of you nearly half your life. I was in the factories at 15 too. It's my life now. You can't stop me. I'm going." And Annie Left.
Annie took a train to the Davies home in West Bromwich, England. She enjoyed the train ride since she had never been on one. When she arrived at John's home, she was greeted with warmth from his family. That night, John came to talk to Annie. Annie was reading her favorite book about a girl who escaped from her life she hated and lived happily ever after. "Annie, I want you to know. I will give you anything you need. When we reach America, I'm going to give you the wedding you've always hoped for." Annie was completely overwhelmed at this wonderful man's promise.
On the 8th, Alfred got married. He was unable to take his wife with him so she went to stay at her mothers until Alfred called for her when he reached America. The 10th came and they went to Southampton. When they arrived at the docks, Annie was very suprised. "This is the ship you're taking me to America in? This is the ship? Oh it's better than I had ever dreamed, thank you, John! Thank you!"
So they all boarded Titanic in third class. Their room was somewhere on E deck. They had a nice time. Joseph, who had loved Annie from the start, talked to her on the 13th. He asked her if she would get off of Titanic with him when they reached America and run away together. "No," Annie refused. "I love John. John is the love of my life. I cannot betray that. I love him too." Joseph felt terribly betrayed that the woman he loved didn't reciprocate the feeling. For the rest of the voyage, he stayed to himself and gave Annie evil looks.
John and Annie had taken many late night walks up on deck. On April 14th though, Annie asked John one last time if he would come and walk with her. "Not tonight, dear. I kind of wanted to catch up on my reading." So Annie went on deck alone. She stayed leaning over the railing looking at the stars. At 11:40 pm, when Titanic hit the iceberg, she had no idea she was in danger. She saw the berg, but thought the ship had merely come close. She stayed up on deck and talked with other passengers. She had faith in this first class ship and truly believed it was unsinkable.
Annie realized that John was downstairs. He was very interested in physics and she was sure he could figure out what happened. She said goodnight and went down below deck to find him. She came down the stairs and found a gate pulled across the hall. And right behind it was John. They attempted many times to open it, but it was no use. John told Annie to save herself and get to a boat. But John was the love of her life and she refused. The 2 of them died that night, having drowned- together.
The Story of Annie Meek
Annie Meek was about 17. She lived in Ireland and had been taking care of her mother who was sick. She had done this for about 3 years. Since Annie's dad had died when she was little, she was the one in charge. In 1911, her mother died. Annie was now left alone with her little sisters, Kathryn-15, and Jenny-7. Annie was also engaged to a man named John Davies who lived in England. John sent Annie a letter in April of 1912, and he asked her to with him to America. His brothers, Alfred-24, and Joseph-17, were invited to go with their uncle, James Lester. Their uncle had gathered some money so that the Davies' could go to America, in Michigan, where some of John's brothers already lived. John promised that he would give Annie the wedding that she had always dreamed of.
Annie was very willing to go with her love, but her sisters were still young. But, she knew that her love for John was greater than anything at her home. She decided to go with them to America. Kathryn was greatly upset at Annie for agreeing to go. Annie explained to Kathryn how her life had always been spent giving to others and nothing was ever about her. She had spent her entire life caring for her sisters while they were young because her mother always worked. She had to escape the horrors of caring for her mother while she was sick. So with that, Annie left. Annie met with John and they boarded the Titanic as third class passengers. On board, she had a common third class cabin, the exact number is unknown. After a few days, Joseph asked Annie to get off with him when they reached New York. Joseph truly did love Annie. But Annie confessed her undying love for John. So Joseph left Annie alone. Annie and John were always seen holding hands. No matter where they were, they were always together. They often took walks, watched the stars, the air, and even watched sunrises. They were absolutely inseparable.
John was often reading in his books and making calculatioons. Annie was always reading and looking at how handsome John was.
The night of the sinking, John was writing and Annie was reading. Annie decided that it was getting late. It was around 11:00 pm when she asked John if he would like to go for a walk before they went to sleep. John was busy and his books and told her to go ahead. So, Annie kissed his cheek and went up to the deck. She leaned on the railings for awhile. The sky was really clear and she loved the stars. She was on the left side of the ship when the ship hit the iceberg. She felt a slight shudder, but nothing to cause great alarm. So she asked other passengers on deck what had happened, and they gossiped for a few seconds until the iceberg flew past them. So they all talked about their theories. But, they still believed the ship was unsinkable, so they didn't panic. Annie stayed around to see if a crew members could tell her what happened. Then she realized that John was under deck and that he would want to know what happened. So, she said goodbye to the other passengers and went down the steps. She got down to her deck and heard screaming coming through the halls. She came to a stop as she was the gate pulled across the hall. And behind the gate, stood her love. John was wild-eyed and frightened. She ran to his side. She told him of the iceberg and of the shudder she felt. John then told her to get to a lifeboat as he had been instructed to do. She looked around for someone who could unlock the gate. But there was no one. They were two souls destined to be together and they were separated by a simple gate. It was then that Annie realized her fate. Annie grabbed John's hands. She sank to the floor and he followed. They stayed on the floor embrassing until the cold water came trickling down the steps. But the cold didn't seem to matter to them. And the people behind the gates screamed in horror as they realized their fate. But the two didn't seem to hear their screams.
