Assunto:  either... or VS whether...or
 
Mensagem:  I'd also go with "...whether you stay or run away". 

It seems weird the use of "...either you stay or run away". 

AM I giving this person a choice of running away or staying? No way!

Maybe it has sth. to do with the fact of choice, alternative, exclusion, fate... still don't know. There must be something...

I do know grammar rules are not a must, but hopefully, I will get some reasoble explanation (or not) kkk

I'll still wait for others though. 

Thanks for the link, Teacher! I check stuff there once in a while as well.
