Sometimes I get across the word "across". And I know it means "from one side to the other". But, could you guys explain me the meaning of it, in these examples? Because they don't seem to follow this meaning:

She sits across the aisle.

They walked across.

He takes off his shirt. Dots of lake water glisten in the sun across his back.

I thank you in advance
