Carly shivered as she sat on the couch and tried not to think about what had happened yesterday with Trey, she couldn't believe she'd been tricked his innocent nerd look. "I've never liked nerdy guys" she mumbled and looked up as the door opened and Sam walked in.
"Hey cupcake" Sam said cheerily and plopped down on the couch and propped her feet up on the table "What's goin on?" she asked.
"Sam?" she asked confused, "I thought you had work today" she said, "Why aren't you at work?"
"Oh.. I guess I forgot to tell you I quit" she said shrugging, "I got Freddie fired so.. No real point in working there anymore, like he said I'm lazy"
"Sam!" Carly practically shouted as she jumped up "You got Freddie fired?"
"Yup, it was actually kind of fun" Sam said dryly.
"So you just get him fired and just quit?" she asked, shaking her head and sighing.
"Yeah pretty much, So what?" Sam asked curiously.
"You.. You're- Gaahh" Carly threw up her hands in defeat and stomped to the door.
"Where ya goin?" she asked, watching Carly move to the door "And is there any ham or bacon?"
"I'm going to go check on Freddie and there is no bacon, people who get their friends fired don't get bacon or ham!"
Out on the fire escape Freddie looked at his pearpad and laptop and sighed, he still couldn't believe he'd been fired from the Pear Store. Working there had been like a dream come true, until Sam had come along and started messing with his job. He glared at his pearpad for a moment before he heard a familiar voice behind him.
"Hey" Carly said softly, sitting down on the fire escape and looking down at the street "I hear what Sam did" she whispered softly and glanced at him.
"Oh yeah? Huh, I bet she didn't feel a bit of regret did she?" he asked, trying to keep the anger out of his voice.
"No she didn't" Carly said with a defeated sigh "I'm so sorry Freddie I know there's.."
Freddie raised a hand to stop her "You don't need to apologize to me, It wasn't your fault.. I'm just so sick and tired of her ruining everything good in my life.. She's like a parasite who feeds on misery so she has to make other people miserable to eat!"
Carly couldn't help but let out a small giggle at Freddie's description of Sam "Do you want me to make her go to the pear store and talk to them about you getting your job back? If anyone deserves a job there it's you.. You're amazing with computers and technology and.."
Freddie smiled "Thanks but it wouldn't matter.. They think I'm an idiot and I can't sell anything, I was horrible with customers"
Carly stood up and walked over to him "Is there anything I can do to help you?" she asked curiously, leaning on the guard rail and looking at him.
"Can we just talk? I mean.. about anything, I just want to get my mind off it" he replied.
Nodding she smiled "So um.. That guy,Trey.. He was a total creep, wasn't even all that nerdy!" she said.
A frown formed on his face before he smirked "Since when are you into the nerdy guys?" he asked curiously.
Shrugging she glanced at him "I don't know.. a while?" she said, almost as if It were a question.
"So.. Now you're into nerds?" he asked, his tone hopeful.
"Well.. I guess so" she said, looking almost uncomfortable at the way the conversation was turning.
He smiled for a moment and shook his head "Alright I'll drop it" he said, "For now"
"For now?"she asked curiously and shook her head "You are so goofy sometimes Freddie" she said with a small giggle.
"I try," he teased "So did he try anything? Do I need to hurt someone?" he asked.
"No, Spencer took care of it" she promised. "Freddie.. Thank you for just.. being you" she trailed off, biting her lip and looking down.
"Hey, being me is all I can really do" he said with a shrug "But thanks.. And thank you for being you.. You're seriously amazing Carls" he said, "Don't ever change on me"
"I won't" she said, turning her head to look at him, "I promise"
He turned to face her and smiled softly, almost shyly and looked into her eyes as he asked her the same question he'd asked her just a few days ago at school "Is it too late for you to love me?" he asked.
"No" she said without hesitation "I don't think it is"
Freddie couldn't help but grin "I've been waiting forever for you to say that..." he admitted before taking her hands in his "So um.. Can I take you out on that date I've been asking about since we were eleven?"
"Yeah.. I think you can" she replied playfully and kissed his cheek softly.
