Snowflake Tales : Rescue Party

10 : Rescue Party


“Yeah!” Kris belted and jumped out of his seat while Luke’s arms shot up into the air as hollers rang in unison after one of the teams scored.

Kris and Luke both looked forward to their Saturday hockey game, and they figured that watching the national hockey league wasn’t just a past-time, it was part of their training schedule. So they met-up at the local pub where other team members gathered to watch the pros.

With a zero to one score, the first intermission came up just at the right time to order food.

“Hey isn’t Carlie joining us?” One of the players asked.

“She’s taking Cindy and Tucker out for a play in the snow – she should be here soon.” Kris mentioned.

Beer glasses clinked and plates were soon on the tables, just in time for the second period to start.

“So what did I miss?” Carlie joined Luke and Kris, pulled up a chair and looked at the score board. “Other than ordering dinner – looks like only one score.” She said teasingly.

Luke waved for the waiter, and before another score for the team, Carlie’s plate was on the table.

“Hey, you won’t believe what we found!” She said cheerfully before taking a bite of food.

“Mmm, this is a good one!” Commenting quickly on the burger, she went on to tell them about the search for Luke’s lucky puck.

Kris hadn’t noticed
Luke’s lucky puck
Stuck in the back
Of his pick-up truck

But Tucker the pup
Was quick to jump up
In the back of the truck
And pull it out

Only for Peter Puck
To be dropped again
Not on the ice rink
But in a pile of snow

Luke was so certain
Where he left it last week
He couldn’t understand
How Kris could’ve missed it

He searched hi and low
‘Cuz little did he know
Tucker had dropped it
In a pile of snow

So when Carlie and Cindy
Heard of Luke’s distress
They recalled Tucker’s romp
And his frolic in the snow

That’s when they headed out
With Tucker the pup
And found Luke’s lucky puck
Where it was last dropped

“There you go buddy!” Kris said jokingly, “You got your lucky puck back, so you better score tomorrow!”

Other team members had gathered around to listen-in. Distracted by Luke’s lucky puck search and rescue efforts, they all missed the next goal on the big screen!
