100 Word Dash Contest Winner 

The director sat at a table, behind him five guards.
 "There is one more task."
On the right side of the room was a small boy, the left - my daughter, behind - a mother holding her child.
"You have three bullets.  Shoot the child on the right or we will kill your daughter."

I make my choice.
 I shoot the director and two of his guards.
The three guards shoot me.  No heart shot, no mercy, my arm, both legs.  They shoot my daughter.
 Bleeding, slowly dying, I ask, "The right decision?"
"Your turn," they say to the woman behind me.
