They Really Need to Learn to Read Between the Lines
Dragonbreath Mainsail kept the books for most of the small businesses in her little town. Everyone trusted Dragonbreath, mostly because they did not know she skimmed a little off the top of every transaction. It was not enough for anyone to notice, but over the years it added up to a substantial fortune. Dragonbreath retired early. Her clients were heart broken.
