The Rock-itt : March 2010
there to help and not harm her. Soon she calmed down as she realised that she was safe with these people. After the initial encounter and as this young woman stood before him it suddenly dawned on our young Aussie adventurer that this young lady was one of youth and beauty. But rather me stumble through with a whole lot of adjectives, Errol can tell us from his memoirs how she looked on that day. "Her face lit up, and I realised I was staring at a honey coloured girl of exceeding femininity. She had a perfect figure and the most glorious breasts you ever saw -- the classic ski -- jump type a lovely little hollow, and then the line goes way up into the air and doesn't dip. She was bushy haired of course, and very lightly tattooed. She wore little except the typical grass skirt, called the rami, made of Pandora leaves or coconut leaves carefully interwoven. She was barefooted, and I think I liked her very much because she had no ring through her nose." Can you imagine it, in the middle of all that was going on at this precise moment in time Errol stops to give us a wonderful description of this young attractive native woman. (Ahhh... Errol my lad, you are certainly a true son of Australia and you had your priorities perfectly correct). Some authors would seize on this opportunity to make out what a lecherous fiend Errol was by taking advantage of this helpless distraught young attractive girl. But in all honesty, let's look at it as it really was. This young woman could do a lot worse than being taken into the care of Errol Flynn. Errol was certainly a person quite capable of caring about a person's feelings and well being, and even though there appears certain fringe benefits in Errol's favour, I'm certain that this attractive young lady could have fallen into a more treacherous and more precarious situation than the caring pair of hands of Errol Flynn. Her name was Maihiati and Errol knew he couldn't just leave her, especially in the frame of mind she would have been in after having her family butchered and her home burnt to the ground. He had to make a decision. Taking another glance at her exquisite breasts, he made the call..."Right she comes with us". They made their way back to the plantation and all the way along the route Errol would have been tossing it over in his mind what he should do, what would be the honourable and decent way of handling the situation with this young orphan. He could send her back to Kavieng where she would be taken into custody by the authorities there and put to work in one of the hospitals or government institutions. But having heard from one of the Kanakas that she would rather commit suicide than be handed over to the authorities, Errol decided to keep her on at the plantation and have her trained to help his house servant and cook. But as I said earlier, there were going to be certain fringe benefits for Errol which would flow over to his new little companion. And so it evolved that on those lonely nights when his craving for something more tangible than a shelf full of books came to mind, he found in little Maihaiti a kindred spirit and soul mate who could share his young thoughts as well as his young body and together they made something which could have been a lonely life into one of care and happiness, and a common need which is natural fulfilment between a man and a woman.
