World Book Day Flash Fiction winner

I had just come to accept my life would be ordinary when extraordinary things began to happen.

The resound of the evacuation horn filled my ears, rattling my bones, its monstrous melody ringing in my head.

“Evacuate! Do you hear me?” a passenger caterwauled in my ear.

“Abandon ship!”

“Get to the lifeboats!”

“Oh my goodness!”

All of it was a cacophony of panic.

“There’s a fire on board! Into the lifeboats!” the captain yelled over the PA. Without thinking, I hurled myself into the orange vessel; immediately it accelerated. From sheer speed, I was tossed out. All this was a Dover to Calais crossing. How could it have gone so wrong? Succumbing to the current of the briny deep, I was enveloped by the dark abyss. Through the stinging salt water, I descried an unquestionable barnacled hull. Violently, I jerked upwards, elevated by the curling waves. In the seconds my vision was clear, I saw the Queen Mary was moored to a tropical holm. Where am I? When am I??
