Asal Usul Danau Toba

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. Jika janji itu dilanggar maka akan terjadi petaka dahsyat. Setelah sampai di desanya, gemparlah penduduk desa melihat gadis cantik jelita bersama petani tersebut. "Dia mungkin bidadari yang turun dari langit," gumam mereka. Petani merasa sangat bahagia dan tenteram. Sebagai suami yang baik, ia terus bekerja untuk mencari nafkah dengan mengolah sawah dan ladangnya dengan tekun dan ulet. Karena ketekunan dan keuletannya, petani itu hidup tanpa kekurangan dalam hidupnya. Banyak orang iri, dan mereka menyebarkan sangkaan buruk yang dapat menjatuhkan keberhasilan usaha petani. "Aku tahu Petani itu pasti memelihara makhluk halus! " kata seseorang kepada temannya. Hal itu sampai ke telinga Petani dan Puteri. Namun mereka tidak merasa tersinggung, bahkan semakin rajin bekerja. Setahun kemudian, kebahagiaan Petan dan istri bertambah, karena istri Petani melahirkan seorang bayi laki-laki. Ia diberi nama Putera. Kebahagiaan mereka tidak membuat mereka lupa diri. Putera tumbuh menjadi seorang anak yang sehat dan kuat. Ia menjadi anak manis tetapi agak nakal. Ia mempunyai satu kebiasaan yang membuat heran kedua orang tuanya, yaitu selalu merasa lapar. Makanan yang seharusnya dimakan bertiga dapat dimakannya sendiri. Lama kelamaan, Putera selalu membuat jengkel ayahnya. Jika disuruh membantu pekerjaan orang tua, ia selalu menolak. Istri Petani selalu mengingatkan Petani agar bersabar atas ulah anak mereka. "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

sambil menahan haus dan lapar. seketika itu juga anak dan istrinya hilang lenyap. Dan akhirnya membentuk sebuah danau. Petani menjadi marah sambil menjewer kuping anaknya. Putera mendapat tugas mengantarkan makanan dan minuman ke sawah di mana ayahnya sedang bekerja. Tetapi Putera tidak memenuhi tugasnya. tiba-tiba menyemburlah air yang sangat deras dan semakin deras.

Petani menunggu kedatangan anaknya. "Anak tidak tau diuntung ! Tak tahu diri ! Dasar anak ikan !. 2 .Memang kata orang. Di lihatnya Putera sedang bermain bola.
