Untitled Drawing by ISmashU

Moana's feet thumped against the wood of a boat, her movements quick and nervous, her hair splayed in the messiest bun. She wiped her brow free from sweat and exhaled a exasperated sigh.

How could I have lost it?

Her necklace- her Grandmother's necklace, was missing. She had attended a ceremony at a neighboring island, thus she wore her full royal attire, and reluctantly left her beloved necklace on one of the boats. She sniffled softly as she quickly wiped tears away, she felt guilt wash over and within her like the great waves of the ocean. On their way back, there had been a storm passing through, she hoped it hadn't gotten lost then. "I'm sorry.." she whispered softly as she hopped off the boat and dragged her feed against the sand as she walked towards the ocean, it's waves softly lapping against the sand as if to beckon her over.

"... Have you seen my necklace, by any chance?" Moana asked hopefully as she looked at the gushing waves, the ocean collected together in a form and shook it's 'head', much to her dismay, "Figures.."

The ocean came swelling around her ankles gently, encouraging her to take a break, and calm herself. "Perhaps you're right," Moana hummed as she yanked her hair out of a bun, "a break might just help."

The ocean gurgled ripples of joy against her as she walked into the ocean, till it was up to her waist. She exhaled through her nose as her eyes lull closed, she listened to the beat of the waves, and the beat of her sputtering heart. She smoothly began to dance, sway, and twirl, as the beat of the waves and her heart began to mingle, and soon became one beat. She listened to this new beat and hummed softly as her arms dipped in and out of the water.

"Can you feel the tug of the undertow?" Gramma Tala asked, "It's like a dance partner, spinning you one way while the top of the waves push you another. The ocean likes to play."

Moana swung one hand through the water, her skin tingling at its touch.

"The ocean plays with you?" Moana asked. A long-ago memory wiggled in her mind- shells laid out in a line, walls made of water.

"Oh, I know what they say about me," Gramma Tala said, "I'm eccentric and love the water too much, but I believe once you find what makes you happy, that's part of who you are. So I don't resist it, even if that means people think I'm crazy!"

Holding out her hands with a laugh, Gramma Tala reached for Moana and they spun together through the waves.

Moana smiled fondly at the memory as her eyes fluttered open, to gaze at the gorgeous sunset ahead.

"Suga!" A familiar voice hollered.

Moana turned around, and saw Malosi, a farmer boy, whom has been, along with many others, pursuing her. (Though she would never tell, Malosi was her favorite suitor, he was closer to her than any of the others) "Yes?" She answered as she began to walk back to the shore, squeezing water out of her hair.

"Lookit what I found in a taro basket." Malosi chimed casually with a smile as he held his hand out, the object winking in the light.

Moana gasped and rushed up to the young man, she gingerly took the necklace and held it close. "Oh, thank you!" Moana sighed happily in sweet relief as she smiled happily at Malosi. She looked at the necklace fondly before tying it around her neck. "Thank you, thank you! I owe you, Malosi."

"Bah, that's okay," Malosi said as he waved a hand, before grinning cheekily, "You can just marry me and I'll call it even."

Moana scoffed a few giggles and rolled her eyes. "Totally ruined the moment." She said dully while crossing her arms, and pushing past him.

"Oh come on, la'u pele," Malosi chuckled as he caught up with her, "Admit it already, I'm your favorite."

"Hei Hei is my favorite." Moana snipped with a dismissive wave of her hand as she trekked towards the heart of the village.

"Ouch," Malosi playfully hissed as her scrunched his shoulders gently, before smiling softly and shaking his head, "Well, I better get going, I have to cook dinner. Tofa."

"Fa," Moana said while waving, watching Malosi walk away. Her fingers then brushed gently against her necklace. "Fa'afetai lava, sole."

"Leai se fa'afitauli!"
Malosi chimed.

Moana smiled softly while shaking her head, she sighed softly and began to walk towards her fale.


I lost a beloved anklet given to me by my mother, thus I wrote this out of sadness Waaaah! Wink/Razz lol

I didn't write the falshback with Gramma Tala, I took it from from chapter two of The Story Of Moana: A Tale of Courage and Adventure, a Moana novel by Disney.
