Chapter Three: Can't Argue With That
She screamed. "Oh my gosh!"
"Oh my gosh!" Spencer shouted.
"Turn the cameras off!" Carly yelled at Spencer. She dropped her cell phone on the beanbag and ran over to Freddie's tech cart.
Spencer scrambled over to the cart and started pressing random buttons.
"What are you doing?" Carly stress-yelled.
"I'm trying to turn the cameras off," Spencer hit a key on the laptop and a voice overhead called out: "Random Dancing!"
The lights started flashing like crazy and music blasted from the speakers.
"Spencer!" The last thing Carly felt like doing was dancing. She felt more like crying after revealing her used-to-be secret to the world.
"Sorry! I am pushing literally all of the buttons but nothing is happening!" Spencer yelled over the music as the green screen lowered down from the ceiling.
"I wouldn't say 'nothing' is happening, Spencer!" Carly wished she would've taken Freddie up on some lessons for learning about the techy stuff for iCarly.
Suddenly, Freddie ran into the studio and his jaw dropped for the second time that night. "What are you doing?" He asked Spencer over the music.
"I literally don't know," Spencer said, surrendering the cart to Freddie.
Freddie did some quick typing on his keyboard and pressed a few other buttons. The music stopped, the cameras turned off, the wall monitor swung back into place, and the green screen started rolling back up. "There, I think that fixed everything," Freddie faced Carly and Spencer.
"Wow. Nice work, Freddie," Spencer said, his expression the same as when he had gone to a magic show when he was eight.
"Yeah, thanks for coming over here and saving us before Spencer made something catch fire," Carly said.
"No problem," Freddie said.
Carly and Freddie locked eyes for the first time since Freddie had shown up. Carly looked away and redirected her gaze to the floor, suddenly seeing the reality of wishing the floor would open up and swallow you.
Sensing the awkwardness and embarrassment on Carly's part, Spencer started slowly back up towards the door. "Well, I've got a sculpture that really has to be finished, so I'll just leave you guys alone- I mean leave! I'll just leave." Spencer turned and sprinted out the door.
Carly forced herself to look Freddie in the eye. "So how much did you hear?"
"Oh… well, I heard… you know, enough…" Freddie tried to hide his excitement that his crush was finally crushing back.
Carly blushed and tried to quickly cover it up. She started talking in a really fast voice again. "Oh, well, that's okay then because I know you already said that you didn't like me anymore and I'm totally okay with doing what you've been doing for three years, you know, crushing on me, but me not crushing back, and if you can do it, I can do it, even though it kind of sucks that now it's reversed with me liking you and-"
"Carly!" Freddie had to interrupt her before she gave him a headache.
"I just thought you should know that it really sucks, being in love with someone and they don't love you back. So it doesn't really matter whether you think you can do it, just because I did, because it is really hard."
"Oh. Well… what are you saying?" Carly asked, assuming she already knew the answer. He's trying to tell you, get over me, Carly, and stop bugging me with your stupid crush!
"I'm saying that since I know that it's hard, I don't want you to go through the same thing I went through."
I knew it… As soon as he leaves, I'm breaking out the ice cream and locking myself in my room for the rest of my life! Carly looked back down at her feet, wishing Freddie would just leave.
"Which is why I want you to go with me to a movie tomorrow after school," Freddie said with a huge grin on his face.
Carly's head snapped back up. She searched his expression for signs that he was joking. "What? B-but, you said that-"
"Oh come on. You've never lied before to get Sam to stop bugging you?" Freddie said with a laugh.
Carly laughed too. "So… you mean… you do still have a crush on me?"
"Would I be asking you to be my girlfriend if I didn't?" Freddie asked.
"Well, I can't argue with that," Carly said, silently taking back her wish that Freddie would leave.
"So is that a yes?"
"No. It's a most definitely a hundred times yes." Carly smiled. "So I guess this means we're going out now."
"You have no idea how long I've been waiting to hear you say that," Freddie said before he hugged her.
The next day at school…
Sam walked through the school doors and walked her usual path over to Carly's locker. However, this time instead of seeing just her best friend, she saw her best friend kissing someone. This was a definite change. Sam walked up, unfazed, and rapped her knuckles on the side of Carly's locker. "Hey, lovebirds, I need to copy someone's English homework."
Carly and Freddie separated and silently asked each other whether or not Sam had even noticed the difference.
Sam noticed their confusion and waved it away. "I saw Carly's confession on iCarly last night. I know the ending. So seriously, I need someone's homework here." Carly and Freddie laughed at the fact that Sam was not bothered at all that her two friends were now dating and that she was completely unchanged by all of this.
Which was a very good thing indeed, because if she wasn't okay with it… well… Let's just say, that would be a whole other story.
Yay! My first ever finished fanfic! I honestly don't know if I'll do a sequal to this like it's kind of suggested at the end or not. If you guys want me to, I'll see what I can do. But for now I have got to focus on my other story. If any of you are fans of the Naked Brothers Band, you should check it out. No pressure though. I've found that you either hate NBB or you love them. I love them, so yeah. Again, please, please, please review and tell your friends all about it! Bye!
