It didn't seem like a very hard decision to make. In fact, I think 99.7% of people in the right frame of mind would have picked from column A and gone on with their merry lives. But for some freaking crazy reason, I thought that maybe, just maybe I should go with this stranger up those kelp-ridden stairs and toward the lair of unimaginable horror. You know, because it was the more interesting alternative.
Funnily enough, while I'd complain about stupid decisions in other protagonists that do this sort of thing, the fact that she knows it's not the logical choice makes me applaud her.
