#FridayFantasy . . . .He who sups with the devil should have a long spoon.

“Said the Sea Witch, ‘I must be paid, and it is no slight thing that I require for my trouble.
You have the sweetest voice of all the dwellers in the sea, and you think by its means to
charm the Prince; your voice, however, is what I demand as my recompense for
this magic drink…’ “

From “The Mermaid,” HC Andersen.
