THE LEGEND OF THE NAUPAKA FLOWER


By: Kelsi Sakai

A long time ago there was a
man and a woman who fell deeply
in love with each other. The
woman was a princess who was
the sister of the fire Godess
Pele. The man was a commoner.
Pele liked this commoner and
she asked him to marry her.

He said "No. I am in love
with your sister."

Pele was furious. She made
a lava flow to chase her sister
and the man. Pele chased the
man down to the ocean.

The lava was so fast the man
couldn't run faster than it.
The lava killed the man. Pele's
sister ran up a mountain because she
thought lava could not go uphill.
But she was wrong. Pele raced up
the mountain and killed her .
Down at the beach a plant started
to grow near the man who
lay there dead. The
plant had a flower on it.

The strange thing was there was
only half of a flower. Up in the
mountains a plant started to grow
next to the woman who lay there
dead. The plant also had a half flower.
Legend has it if you put the two
half flowers together so the left
half and the right half touch ends,
the man and the woman are
joined together once again.
