Naupaka: Years ago there were two lovers who were inseparable. Pele took an interest in the man. When he refused her, she became enraged and chased him into the mountains. In an effort to save the young man, Pele’s sisters took pity on him and turned him into a flower. Pele turned her rage towards the other lover, and again her sisters intervened and turned the young woman into a flower. The two half flowers were said to be the separated lovers, only happy when united to be one single bloom.
