Fijian Warrior - final version of narrative

Long ago in 1635 in the ancient islands of Fiji was a small island Lakeba which had been named by the chief. It was known as a very powerful island. On the island were several large villages. In the centre of the biggest island was a big piece of land. Fruits and vegetables were grown there for families who needed food. There was a young man named Miti who worked on the big piece of land. He was a very hard working man. Miti would always smile at families in the village because he wished that he had a family of his own.

One day Miti was working as he usually does and took a glimpse at the beach. His mind was confused. He had never seen foreigners before. But no one knew that a big group of them were approaching. Hearts were beating so fast that they thought it was the end of the world. The villagers started to panic. They wanted to throw sharp weapons. One of the villagers threw a spear and it hit one of the foreigners shotguns. Miti knew that they needed help so he quickly raced to get all of the strong men on the island.

But once they saw them with big flamethrowers and giant shotguns they knew they had to escape. The enemy was too strong. They quietly got all of the wakas in all of the village’s and started sending families to the nearest island. BOOOOOM! A loud bang was heard as one of the mountains filled with the most gold in the country exploded. Gold flew through the air and landed everywhere. The villagers hid in the bush with a bundle of families scrunching up together like a big clump of playdough. Then they heard a gunshot and the bush fell down.

Everyone was in sight as soldiers approached them as fast as lightning. “Wait” said one of the soldiers. We will let the family's escape and we will only take the princess, the daughter of the chief. He ordered the other soldiers to go and search the chief’s house for any treasures. He took the princess and tied her up to a pole in the boat. “ GO BEFORE ALL OF YOU WILL BE KILLED “ the man shouted. Everyone rushed to the other wakas that sailed back. “ Miti you know how much I love my daughter” the chief cried. “ Yes I do “ answered Miti. I would love it if you could save her from those horrible people. Miti thought for a second. “Yes I will do anything for you”

So everyone went on the wakas and sailed to the nearest island Ba. The villagers on the island Ba helped them with some food and somewhere to sleep. Meanwhile the soldiers thought the princess would be a great slave back in their home country. The next day early in the morning at 3:00 am Miti walked out of the house they were sleeping in and took a look at their island Lakeba.

It was blurry for him to see because it was quite far away. He decided to take off in the waka without telling everyone and quietly set off. He finally arrived at the island. He stepped into the wet sand and the sound you could only hear was silent footsteps. He walked past the bushes and the land looked different. He had remembered where they hid the princess. He silently walked through the wet and muddy grass and finally came to the pole she was tied up to but she was not tied up anymore.

She was sleeping on the boat while the soldiers were sleeping in the houses of the village. “Princess Vina Princess Vina” he whispered. She woke up quietly and replied. “ Miti why are you here “ I am here to save you. The princess jumped out the boat and hopped on his back. “ Thank you” she said. They ran quickly to the waka and went off. He showed her where to sleep and Miti went back to bed. When the sun rose up the chief woke up and saw his daughter sleeping in another house in the village.

He walked there and woke her up. “VINA” he cried. He gave her a big hug. “ How did you get here” “Miti saved me early in the morning” she replied. Wait here. He walked to Miti house and woke him up. “Thank you so much” he said. He talked to Miti for a bit and said “ Since you saved my daughter Vina I want you to marry her” Miti was shocked he did not know what to say. “Thank you” he replied He gave him a big hug. Princess Vina did not know that Miti was going to propose to her.

Miti went out to the beach and caught a shark. He yanked out a gigantic tooth and presented it to the chief. He was so pleased. Miti proposed to Vina and she said “YES”. They got married that night and everyone celebrated. But one thing was still wrong. They needed their island back so they decided to go on all of the wakas and travel back. They all charged and the soldiers were defeated. They all knew they had a safe life. 1 year later Miti became Prince Miti.

They had a baby boy and Prince Miti was next in line for chief.

The End. By Mitchell.

    I can tell that you have worked very hard to write this narrative. I love your story because it was interesting to read and flowed really well. Remember to check and edit paragraph 6 as the sentence beginnings are quite repetitive. I can't wait to see how well your artwork matches your narrative. Well done!
