Write a story, in less than 200 words, about a character who must make a life-altering decision in just 10 seconds.

It’s a fascinating exploration of instinct, consequence, and decision-making. In such a prompt, the characters’ true nature is often revealed most authentically. What can your character say or do that will sum up everything about them?
