Each year I consult the same accountant for help with my tax return. She doesn't appreciate it when I bring in my receipts all balled-up in plastic bags, but up until last week, I thought we got on fine.

Imagine my surprise when my accountant's latest bill arrived! How much does she want me to pay?

Text from bottom "page":
Laid out in a table, with columns marked s. d., and rows as below:

"Friends" spin-off series
Kingdom from "The Princess Bride"
Queen's headwear
A leatherworker
A concert piano

Below the table, it says

One day, she deceived the woodsman and told him that she was with child when she was not. 'If we continue to provide charity for these orphan children of yours, we shall have no food nor warmth to spare for our own babe, for we are far from wealthy,' she cried. 'They must go, or it shall surely spell the death of the child in my womb.'

It was with a heavy heart, then, that the woodsman turned Ilja and Anja out of his home, for he loved his wife and wished with all his heart to have his own family.

Sadness, though, was of little comfort for Ilja and Anja. As they returned to their path, hand in hand, little Anja wept; and Ilja turned to the woodsman and bade him most bitterly: 'Remember, now, how you treat those in need, lest you someday be in need yourself.' Then Ilja and Anja wandered back into the woods, hand in hand, sorrowful as ever, once again seeking a home and a family gor their own.
