Synopsis: In this short story, Randy Reynolds shows us that just because you can’t see the result of your hard work doesn’t mean it isn’t worth working towards. A girl plants a flowering vine, waters it, gives it fertilizer, and even talks to it so it will grow, but only a vine grows, no flowers. Sad with the lack of blooms, the girl wants to cut it down, but as she starts, she hears something from the neighbor next door. When she goes next door she sees the most beautiful flowers coming from her vine, so all of her hard work had paid off even though she hadn’t noticed.

I truly believe he was a god loving man, and that his actions were not done because he wanted to, but because he truly believed he was defending himself against zombie like creatures. When the CIA went into his last hold out to eliminate him, I believe we should have tried to capture and detain him, because obviously this man just needed some help. So please lift the charges on Mr. Glasson, though the murderer used his shotgun to kill over a hundred people, Mr. Glasson had no idea of what his son would do with the family hunting fire arm.
