Carey and Giroux are walking down the hallway of the NHL HQs, looking for the room where the scheduler is.
Giroux runs to the door that says: 'NHL Schedule Room.' "I found it! I found it! I found the--"
Carey covers Giroux's mouth. "Shhh!!! You're gonna ruin the plan! Don't. Talk." He removes his hand from Giroux's mouth when Giroux nodded in agreement. "Now, stay out here--be my guard." Carey slides into the room quietly.
He tip-toes behind the scheduler and uses his telepathy on him. Listen to me.
I am listening to you.
Good. Make the Pittsburgh Penguins play against the Montréal Canadians for the rest of the year.
Make the Pittsburgh Penguins play against the Montréal Canadians for...the rest of the year...
Yes! Now change it before you forget!
Yes, sir. The scheduler made some clicks and typing on the computer. There, all done.
"Yessss...puuurrrfect..." Carey makes an evil smile.Thank you, now, fall asleep!
The scheduler immmediately hits the desk with his head and starts to snore.
Carey goes to the computer and makes the changes permanent.
Giroux peeks his head into the room. "Can we go now? I'mma hungry."
Carey walks out from the room. "Now that I completed my mission of the day, yes, we can go. Tomorrow night, we play!"
Thirty minutes later in San Jose...
Antti is watching his game when Jonathan and Sidney come in with his ice cream.
"Hey, Niemi! We're hoooome!!!" Jonathan sings.
Antti raises his hand in the air. "Shh! I'm watching a game!"
"But do you want your ice cream?" Sidney asks Niemi, holding up his ice cone.
"Awww, come on, Henrik, you can make a better shot than that!" Niemi cries at the T.V.
"Uhhh...Niemi?" Jonathan gives Antti a weird look.
"Oh no! Here comes Cammalleri! Watch out, Schnedier! Legs close apart, legs close apart! Bend down, bend down...and--OOHHH!!!"
"I think we should join him," Sidney tells Jonathan.
"I'll root for neither." Jonathan crosses his arms.
"'Cause they're in my conference, but not in my division; we're not rivals."
"Ummm...we're rivals, but we get along," Antti points out.
"Oh, finally you acknowledge us!" Jonathan says.
"So, who are you rooting for?" Sidney asks.
"Okay..." Jonathan grabs the ice cream from Sidney and hands it over to Antti. "Want your ice cream?"
"Ah, lovely..." Antti grabs his ice cream. "Thank you." He starts eating it.
"Well...I believe we should go now...," Sidney says.
"No, wait!" Antti shouts. "I need to show you something very important and bad..." Antti bends down and pulls out his laptop from the table and goes to NHL.com; Sidney and Jonathan sits next to him to see the screen.
"Ummm...why are you going to NHL.com?" Jonathan asks.
Antti click the schedule tab. "Sidney, look at this."
Sidney leans closer to see the schedule of the Penguins. His brown eyes widen. "What the--the schedule! All I see is the Canadian icon! Carey did it! Now we have to play against them for the rest of the season! NOOOOOOO!!!"
"That's all I wanted to show you. Sorry." Antti takes another lick on his ice cream and closes his laptop.
Sidney leans over to Jonathan and starts shaking his shoulder. "WhatamIgonnadooooo?!"
Jonathan throws his hands up. "I don't know, ask the one who showed you this!"
Sidney leans away from Jonathan, closer to Antti, and starts shaking Antti, who almost drops his cone. "WhatamIgonnadooooo?!"
"Whoa! Sid! Stop shaking me!"
Sidney stopped shaking Antti.
"Thank you. Whew. Well, just play against them and show them that you can win all their games!"
"Yes!" Sidney sits up right. "I can beat that Price and Giroux and make them regret their plan!"
"And how are you gonna do that?" Jonathan asks.
"By my powers!" Sidney points to the ceiling.
"But that would be considered cheating!"
"But with this situation, it would not," Antti tells Jonathan.
"Wow, the Master is actually letting me use my powers during a game!"
"It's Antti, not the Master."
"Wait, the game is back on! Be quiet!" Antti begins to look at the T.V. again.
"Okay then, in that case, I shall get back to LA." Jonathan gets up.
"Yea...and Pittsburgh is a long way from here..." Sidney starts heading towards the front door.
"Okay, Antti--bye! Enjoy the game and your ice cream!"
Jonathan and Sidney leave Antti's house.
I would've stopped when Carey changed the schedule, but it seemed too short, so I deicided to write the next scene: BONUS SCENE!
Stay tune for the next chapter when you get to met the Pittsburgh Penguins crew!
