Description:In the story, a married couple lives near Sesivi, on the western shore of the island of Ambrym. On the neighbouring island of Malekula lives the young man Reprepmalao. One day, he takes a bath in the sea and rubs himself off with the leaves of the cottonwood tree and throws them into the sea. The woman from Ambrym sees the leaves float across the sea and collects them and keeps them in her bed. At night, she says: `Reprepmalao, float closer.' Her husband hears this and gets jealous. When the same happens again, the husband goes off to Malekula, finds Reprepmalao, brings him to Ambrym, cuts him to pieces and makes his wife eat him. She is mortified, but brings Reprepmalao back to life with magic. They then escape back to Malekula where they get married.
