Submitted for the #55wordchallenge Week 16

For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and our host has been blown away by some of the entries. The rules for participating and past contests can be found at the link above.  The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon the following Tuesday. Winners will be posted Wednesday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts.  Here is my attempt at using all three photographs.  Please enjoy Choice and Consequence.
