One day when there was no food Tamarereti went fishing to get some fish.He caught three large fish. When it was almost night time the wind went away. Tamarereti couldn't get back home and if he couldn't get back home the taniwha would eat him.He thought he had enough time for the wind to come back so he went to sleep in his waka.When he was sleeping his waka got blown by the wind to the other side of the lake.He woke up an hour after the sun went down. He was hungry.
He made a fire and cooked some fish. When he was eating some fish He saw some pebbles.He threw the pebbles into the sky and it brightened up the night sky and so he wouldn't get eaten by the Taniwha. He arrived home and went to bed. He woke up the next day in the afternoon and went outside. Ranginui was there and Tamarereti thought he was going to get in big trouble because he threw the pebbles into the sky. He didn't get in trouble “I like what you did with the sky it has made the sky more beautiful and now people won't get eaten by the the Taniwha when they go fishing” side Ranginui.
