The Decision – A 100 Words Story
She stood at the intersection unsure of the next step. Turning right takes her to the love of her life. Turning left to her dreams, to everything she ever wanted. This was no road trip; this was her life! She wanted to make the ‘right’ decision!
Taking a deep breath, she contemplated her options, then it struck her – if he was the love of her life why was she contemplating?
It was then she realized that her heart was in love with his mind, she had never met his heart. The love she cherished was never there!
With a bright smile, she turned left.

Brilliant! Love how the thought process changes from doubt to clarity to decision-making!
Thank you, Pingu! Maybe I had an unfair advantage with this photo prompt 😉
All is fair in love and war 😉
Well played, Missy! 😀

Amazing short piece. It clearly brings out the transition from indecisiveness to that of transparent clarity ! Great read:)
Thank you, Vandana! 🙂
Good decision! 😀 And great writing!
Thank you, Meg! That’s a great compliment to have from an accomplished writer like yourself 🙂 🙂
Aw! You’re welcome my friend!
Thank you so much! 🙂
Some excellent word-play going on in this piece Rashmi 🙂 I was certainly ‘struck’ by it, and in similar shoes would probably have ‘left’ also. Unfair advantage? lol, I doubt it – if anything it maybe makes it more difficult, at a guess 🙂
Hahaha Colette. Thank you for joining in the humor or rather creating it! 😀
I like the wordplay you have done in this comment. Left is the way! 😀
Wow! Excellent story Rashmi. If we could always take the right decision…
Would be a good thing, is it not, Masi? If we could always take the right decision! 🙂
Yes dear but sometimes what seems to be a good becomes a bad one and sometimes …:)
Very true! We never really know for sure until we experience it! 🙂
Awesome! Excellent story.
Thank you, Nico! 🙂

Great post! Love is so deceptive I’ve seen people ruin their lives for what they think is love and isn’t at all. Better to follow your dreams!
Thank you, Caroline! We never know until we experience either side what is good/right, but it always helps to analyze! 🙂
Such a perfect way of looking at the situation. I never thought to consider this type of reasoning for the hesitation in making such a decision.
Thank you! Sometimes, a reasoning just hits us and makes us wonder!
It’s such an amazing and piercing story! :’)
Thank you, Jacque! 🙂
