When the sun rose, it set as quick as a few hours to a couple of minutes and was too short to do all the tasks needed to be done. Maui had an idea.
We must slow down the sun! Maui exclaimed to his four brothers. But how? they asked for the millionth time . we will get burnt! I have a plan. Maui said. We will make flax rope and slow the sun. Although they were annoyed Maui's brothers agreed.
At night Maui and his brothers set out. the magical ropes were ready and they hinted the spot for where the sun rose.
The land turned dry and the bush started to end. They had arrived. Put up a wall so he doesn't see us, quickly he is waking! Maui exclaimed
A tremble shook the ground and the sun appeared. Maui lay still before he shouted "Now!" and his four brothers onto the sun. Maui took his hook and banged it on the suns head. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? YOU WILL KILL ME!!" "No I won't" Maui said "I will just slow you down!" and he continued to bang him on the head
When the sun was dazed he commended his brothers to loosen the ropes. The sun slowly crept up and shone on the land. Today if you look rally closely you can still see the magical ropes
