How about whenever he arrives as a voiceless man, he finds himself sitting near the edge of a lake. Though he is aware of his mission and aware he cannot speak, he sits dejectedly pondering his situation. Sitting helplessly at the water's edge, he then notices a flying fish diving in and out of the water. So he takes out a few scraps of bread from his bag and tosses them into the lake for the fish to eat. After the fish eats the bread, he tells the voiceless man "thank you." The man is surprised to hear that the fish speaks and even more surprised to learn that the fish can read his thoughts. The man then convinces the fish to be his "voice" and assist him in winning the princesses love. The man decides to bring the princess to the lake and have the fish speak to her on his behalf. But when he goes to fetch the princess, fishermen capture the talking fish, who can also read minds, and now the man must somehow rescue the fish from the fishermen in order to put his own plan into action.
