This is not the real start to my story, this is: I am a sailor and I live in California. My name is Tory, blah, blah, blah. Let’s skip to the interesting part, starting on the day it happened. It was a warm day in May, and I was on the deck washing my ship. When I got back home, I realized that I had forgotten to lock the door to my ship. I went back to my ship, but when I got there, it was gone! In my panic, I was swinging my lantern around and around, and on the third time my ship appered as a ghost ship!!!! I was so amazed that I ran home as fast as I could to get my son Aaron to show him my ghost ship. He loved it.
The next night I went again but someone followed me, the night guard! He saw the ship and told everyone, but no one believed him, of course. I tried to forget about my ghost ship, but I could not forget! .The fifth night I went back, and my “ship” appeared. When it was close, I jumped on deck, and as soon as I touched the ship I became see-through. I was a ghost!!
I looked around and no one was driving the ship, but when I looked closer I saw the wheel turning by itself, so I took a nap. The last thing I remember is falling asleep. The next day, I woke in a patch of grass. I was a person again.
I saw a lady in a golden dress, and she said “You are on an island called Otheaia, I will show you around.”
She led me to a lake of golden water. “This is the pool of tears,” she said.
I touched the water and I turned 15 again. I thought “I hope my son Aaron listens to me now that I’m his age.”
She said “Now you will stay young forever.” And I did, I’m still here!
