The tribe looked and searched for the drink that she that she described to them, but they couldn't find it. Without the drink she became very sick. Eventually, the girl died. Her entire tribe buried her body up on a hill surrounded with flowers that day. And everyday her entire tribe would visit her. One day some tribe members went to the hill and saw a plant on top of the hill where they buried her. Everyone freaked out when they saw the plant, because hey have never seen such a weird plant. Then they saw a strange fruit drop out of the tree. The girls mother tasted the fruit first. Afterwards, she thought it was so good she named it the coconut tree.
