Re-writing the Legend of Maui

Long long ago there was a boy called Maui and he was walking around in the forest. Then some men just appeared from no where and they asked Maui "Do you want powers?" and he replied "Yes". Then the men started saying weird things and a weird feeling came to Maui. 

When he went home he found a great big hook and he picked it up. The moment he touched the hook he was high up in the air. Then he touched it again and he fell flat on the ground. He thought he was going to tell his siblings about his new hook.

He heard his siblings moaning about how fast the days were going because the sun was running fast across the world. Maui decided to go to the east and go with his brothers. The next day he got his things prepared. 

It was still dark in the morning when he transformed into an eagle and his brother got on his back and they took off to the east. When they got there they found some flax on the ground and they decided to make a net out of it and then Maui used his magical hook to make the net stronger. 

When the sun came out they waited until the sun was in the right position and then they put the net over the sun. They got the sun then he said to the sun "You have to walk around the earth because people don't have enough time to do things so you have to walk or else I will come back and hurt you with my hook."  The sun agreed to walk instead of run around the earth and then they let the sun go. 

Later on that day they went back home and everyone had time to do what they wanted and everyone lived happily ever after.

The End
