The Arawak inhabitants grew. After a time, jealousies fashioned. Envy and all types of wickedness took maintain. Aiomun Kondi was very sad. He warned the people that he would ship an incredible hearth. The few who listened saved themselves by digging caverns in the floor.

The flood got here, and all have been washed away apart from Marerewana and his household, who have been protected in the boat tied to the silk-cotton tree.
