Di sebuah desa di wilayah Sumatera, hidup seorang petani. Ia seorang petani yang rajin bekerja walaupun lahan pertaniannya tidak luas. Ia bisa mencukupi kebutuhannya dari hasil kerjanya yang tidak kenal lelah. Sebenarnya usianya sudah cukup untuk menikah, tetapi ia tetap memilih hidup sendirian. Di suatu pagi hari yang cerah, petani itu memancing ikan di sungai. "Mudah-mudahan hari ini aku mendapat ikan yang besar," gumam petani tersebut dalam hati. Beberapa saat setelah kailnya dilemparkan, kailnya terlihat bergoyang-goyang. Ia segera menarik kailnya. Petani itu bersorak kegirangan setelah mendapat seekor ikan cukup besar. Ia takjub melihat warna sisik ikan yang indah. Sisik ikan itu berwarna kuning emas kemerah-merahan. Kedua matanya bulat dan menonjol memancarkan kilatan yang menakjubkan. "Tunggu, aku jangan dimakan! Aku akan bersedia menemanimu jika kau tidak jadi memakanku." Petani tersebut terkejut mendengar suara dari ikan itu. Karena keterkejutannya, ikan yang ditangkapnya terjatuh ke tanah. Kemudian tidak berapa lama, ikan itu berubah wujud menjadi seorang gadis yang cantik jelita. "Bermimpikah aku?," gumam petani. "Jangan takut pak, aku juga manusia seperti engkau. Aku sangat berhutang budi padamu karena telah menyelamatkanku dari kutukan Dewata," kata gadis itu. "Namaku Puteri, aku tidak keberatan untuk menjadi istrimu," kata gadis itu seolah mendesak. Petani itupun mengangguk. Maka jadilah mereka sebagai suami istri. Namun, ada satu janji yang telah disepakati, yaitu mereka tidak boleh menceritakan bahwa asal-usul Puteri dari seekor ikan.

"Ya, aku akan bersabar, walau bagaimanapun dia itu anak kita!" kata Petani kepada istrinya. "Syukurlah, kanda berpikiran seperti itu. Kanda memang seorang suami dan ayah yang baik," puji Puteri kepada suaminya. 1
