Part of my Hapa Series, this is based upon a hula that describes two lovers transformed by a jealous god, in an attempt to separate them. The woman was banished to the top of Nu'uanu Pali (cliff), while the man was bound to the foot. The god failed to realize, however, the lovers could always come together in the omnipresent mist of the valley.
