I had to read this through a couple of times to really get into the dialect of the MC but then I really enjoyed this tale from the old west setting.

Very cleverly woven together, and some picturesque phrases. I like the ending, with the MC still struggling with his dilemma.

Not to worry, the lord of the vineyard will destroy the husbandmen and give it to others...
Interesting re-telling.
I labored over the dialect some.

Deinitely recognized the similarity to a familiar Bible story... and for some odd reason (lol) I did not have any trouble at all following the dialect. Good story.

I like the open ending even though I too am curious about Mr Fancy Pants health. You told a great tale. I loved the dialect.

The MC's authentic voice from the old West made this a fun read. Lots of visuals in the writing of this piece which added to my enjoyment. Great work. I bet the MC made the right choice.

I admire your mastery of the accent. Aside from a dreadful Irish brogue, I'm terrible at people's accents. Yours added so much life to this story.
