In the valley, although she was accompanied by two guards, she met Ivi, a young man of her age, very sickly.
He introduced himself to her: – O vau o Ivi! Te ‘imi ato’a nei au i te ra’au no’u. (My name is Ivi, I am also looking for medicinal plants).
Fa’uai led him behind a bush. She told the guards to stay at a distance., Fa’uai understood that Ivi wanted to take her with him to the valley, she accepted and they slipped into the bushes quickly moving away from the guards. When they realized Fa’uai’s disappearance, the guards went after them. Ivi was frightened by the idea that they were being chased by guards, so he offered Fa’uai to split, the princess refused and confessed her unhappy life because she was deprived of her freedom. She told him that she would rather stay him in the valley instead of returning to her tyrannical father.
She says : – E tapuni ‘oe ia’u, e eita taua e ta’a’e faahou! (You will hide me and we will always stay together).
With these words, Ivi revealed her secret to her and transformed into a handsome young man because he was actually the genius of the valley. But the voices of the guards were coming closer. So when they arrived near a mountain, out of breath, Ivi told Fa’uai they were going to get caught.
– E fa’a’ea vau na muri ia ‘oe e tae noa atu i te hope’a. (I will stay by your side no matter what).
We then heard a deafening noise, it was water flowing on the walls of the mountain. Ivi and Fa’uai were covered, and it is said, since that day, that they had lived happily behind the waterfalls. These two waterfalls were named Ha’amaremare rahi and Haamaremare iti. The guards discovered this incredible spectacle and on the way back, they too were covered by water, it was the birth of the third waterfall named Vaimahuta.
And ever-since this valley had been called Faaruma’i.
