Part 3 : IceBlock
Snowflake Sally and Peter Puck
Where both quite happy to be
Chilling on the icy block
While the players were away
“You guys don’t mind if I watch for a while do you!?”
Surprised by the sound of her voice, the goalie dropped the puck from his glove. All the other players, also caught up by the joyful sound of her voice, turned to look her way.
“It’s just so exciting to see a game on an outdoor rink! Haven’t seen one since I was a kid!”
The goalie stood in a daze, looking in her direction, while the players chuckled as they slowly skated towards her. All except for one of them.
Luke snapped back quickly to finish what he had started. No less than a second went by, with a quick swoosh of the blades, the puck was right back on the tip of his hockey stick.
Swish swoosh swish swoosh
“Hey Sally! Are you with me?!”
Snowflake Sally’s head veered
Left to right to left
Sliding through the nippy air
Sally held on tight
“I’m right here with you Pete!”
And that’s when they started gliding
The effortless swift flip of his hockey stick sent the puck floating right into the center of the hockey net. That’s when the goalie snapped out of his frozen gaze, and pulled the mask off his face.
“Hey! Come on! That’s not a fair shot!”
Luke chuckled with pride, “You bet it is! Now it’s a tie!”
The mix of yay’s and nay’s filtered across the nippy air while all the players huddled in the center of the ice. All except for one of them.
Exclaimed Snowflake Sally
“I really like this game!”
Peter Puck laughed
“Just always hold on tight!”
They both sat back comfortably
In the goalie’s net
And took up where they left off
From their last brief visit
Her brow slightly furled in a curious stare, she inched closer to the ice rink, “Kris? Is that you? Kris?”
Was it confusion or disbelief? She hadn’t seen her brother in more than ten years. Uncertain if it was him, she kept heading closer to the ice. With every crunch of her snowy step, she became more certain it was him.
“Carlie?” He completely ignored the hustle and bustle coming from the players as he slid across the ice towards her.
“Carlie. Is that really you?”
Gloves off, mask off, he wrapped his arms around her for a great big hug.
Chit chat chitty chat
Snowflake Sally and Pete Puck
Could not get enough
Of the fun they both were having
Still stuck together
On this chilly block of ice
Kris and Carlie, both so happy to see each other, would have liked to spend the rest of the day visiting and catching up. But the players insisted on finishing the game, and Carlie agreed he should do so, as long as he promised to win it and meet up with her later.
This worked out perfectly because Carlie had started her Christmas baking and she had to get the cookies wrapped up and sent off before the Christmas delivery deadline.
