My soul and I went to the Great Lake to bathe. As I began submerging my feet to my ankles, my soul tapped me on the shoulder and pointed down the shoreline. I saw another person wading into the lake. I shouted to them.

I: Be careful! This lake is wider and deeper than you know!

They didn't seem to hear me, as if I were a ghost.

My soul: Maybe they're the ghost.

I: Ghosts are smarter than this.

Before I could shout again, the person fell beneath the still surface. My hope is they find passage to another world within.
