A/n: OK, as some of you may know, I started a fic a few days ago where Sam only had a year to live. I had loads of great ideas for it, but then I came up with this. I decided to delete that other story, and, as of now, I can't imagine I'll be re-uploading it. So instead, I'm running with this, which I hope everyone'll enjoy. I know the concept has been done many times before; either Sam or Freddie moves away and they keep in contact via emails and telephone messages and stuff and then fall in love, but this story has a twist. I won't be revealing it in this chapter, but as the six months (maybe more) progress, you'll see that everything Carly and Freddie think they know about Sam is wrong. The chapters will be each cover the time span of a month, so I guess the prolouge starts in the summer, around August time. This chapter's pretty short, but I figured I'd introduce the character's relationships and such. Of course, it's a Seddie story! They're about seventeen in this fic, in case you were wondering.
And that's enough of the a/n. I bring you...the prologue!
Disclaimer: I don't own iCarly.
"Remember to leave Sam a goodbye message on our message boards," Carly bobbed her head to the camera.
"Or I'll come eat you," The blonde threatened, curling her upper lip in pretend disdain.
"I've been Carly!"
"I've been Sam!"
"And this has been iCarly."
Freddie's fingers flew across the keypad as he finished the show. Carly pulled Sam into a hug, tears threatening to overflow.
"I can't believe you have to go away for six months! It's not fair."
"Chill, Carls!" Sam laughed, "I'll be back. In the mean time, Freddie'd better not mess up my role of the perky sidekick on iCarly. It took me a long time to build that reputation up."
"Perky?" Freddie's eyebrow quirked.
"Watch it Fredly," She shot warningly, still gathered in Carly's arms, "Carly. Seriously, I love you, but I can't breathe." Carly apologised quickly, releasing her best friend and trying not to cry. Sam took a quick look at her watch and exhaled a miserable sigh. "I'd better get back. I told my mom I'd come home as soon as iCarly had finished, so we wouldn't be late for our flight. God knows why the woman picked a night flight. She knows she can't sleep on planes."
"I can't believe your mom got a job in New York! That's immense," Carly wiped her eyes.
Sam waved her hand in a nonchalant manner. "Whatever. I guess I'm gonna have to take as much advantage of the cosmopolitan lifestyle as I can before my mom screws it up."
"The confidence you have in your mom is heart-warming," Freddie remarked, leaning against the tech cart and smirking.
"I've said it before, but come stay with us. Spencer doesn't mind, and you're round here all the time anyway. That way, we can still do iCarly and you can go to school and nothing has to change."
"I want to stay, Carls, but I can't let my mom loose on New York alone. If Melaine wasn't being so selfish by staying at shcool to 'continue her studies'," Sam raised her hands and placed air quotes around these words, "-Then I could stay. But I really can't. Besides, it'll be good to get outta Seattle. See the sights, see the cute boys. There's a whole world out there, kid. It's my chance to see it."
Sam hugged Carly one more time. "I'm not gonna get soppy, because that's not the Puckett way." Sam swallowed the lump in her throat. She kissed her blue remote and pressed it into Carly's hand. "Look after it. If I come back to see it broken, I will not be pleased. See you round, Shay."
Carly smiled, blinking through tears and clutching the remote to her chest. Sam span on her heel and looked over at Freddie. Their friendship had been rocky, to say the least, over the years, but they'd eventually grown to be good friends. Although Sam still relished in watching him squirm.
"Look after my girl. Stay nubbish," She smiled, suddenly pressing her lips to his cheek in a chaste kiss. He flushed, turning to look at his laptop. He desperately tried to think of something witty to retort back, but his mind seemed to freeze over.
"Later," She blew them a kiss, before skipping down the corridor.
After several moments of silence, Carly spoke. "I can't believe she's gone."
"Gone? I bet she's still walking down the stairs now. You know how lazy she is," Freddie commented absently. Carly rolled her eyes.
"I mean gone gone. As in, out of the state."
"Yeah, but she'll be back in six months, won't she? We won't even have time to miss her," Freddie began to play with switches on his laptop, trying to look busy. Carly set the blue remote down and hugged herself.
"It won't be the same."
"Carly. Six months. It'll be fine."
Carly titled her head as she stared at him inquisitively. "Aren't you gonna miss her?"
"Sure, I'm gonna miss her, but I just think you're overreacting a little. She's not dead. You'll see. She'll be turning up on 'New York Crime Watch' before the plane even touches down in the state. Heck, before it even leaves Seattle."
Carly giggled slightly, but immediately felt guilty.
"Annnnnnnd..." Freddie continued, "She said she'll keep in touch. So really, it'll be like she's never left."
"I guess you're right. Wanna grab a smoothie?" Carly offered.
"Sure. Uh, I'll be right down," He nodded, as Carly left the studio. With the click of a mouse, he opened a new email and addressed it to Sam Puckett.
I'm guessing you're either on the way to the airport, or you've arrived. I just thought I'd send you a quick email to tell you that Carly's already moping about you, but I'm hoping that once she's devoured a sweet and sour smoothie, she'll brighten up a bit.
We're all really gonna miss you. Keep checking the boards for messages from the fans; I'm sure there are loads for you.
Uh, not really sure what else to say. Have fun in the city that never sleeps.
Lame. Freddie sighed.
It was going to be a long six months.
