Description:In the story, five sisters from Tonga frequently fly to the island Aneityum to bathe there. One day, Masisipe, a young man who lives on Aneityum, watches them bathe. He takes a shine to the youngest of the girls and decides to hide her wings. When the sisters prepare to get back to Tonga and don their wings, the youngest of them realizes that her wings are gone and starts to cry. Her sisters decide to leave the island without her. Then, Masisipe approaches the girl and asks her for the reason of her grief. She tells him about the wings. He shows her wings to her and invites her to his house, but hides the wings again. They stay together and after a while she gives birth to a child. Still homesick one day she sets out to find her wings and flies back to Tonga with the child. But Masisipe follows her and they stay together.
