FLAME TREE LEGEND
This Chamorro legend is about forbidden love between a two lovers whose grandfathers had become bitter enemies, and this feud carried on through the generations. Elena's brothers learned of a secret meeting of the young lovers, and waited to accost them. As they waited, a wild pig rushed towards Elena, and the brothers killed it, and went home happy with their kill. Elena fled, leaving her bloodied white mantilla on the ground. Nicolas arrived, and finding the bloodied mantilla under the white flowering tree; and thinking his love had died, killed himself. Elena returned from hiding, and seeing her lover dead, she took his knife and killed herself, dying with Nicolas in her arms. When their parents found the lovers under the Atbot Det Fuegu tree, the blossoms had turned to a fiery red. Some say the blossoms blush red for the shame of the families who kept the lovers apart. This is the legend of the Flame Tree.
