Chapter 1: The Letters
Carly, Sam, Freddie, and their classmates were at science class.
“…and that’s why without oxygen, we would die,” said the Mr. Nematode, the health teacher.
Principal Franklin made an announcement on the loud speaker: “This is a message to all seniors.
As you know today you get your collage acceptance letters. You will go to the collage office during
your lunch period to pick them up.”
Everyone started talking about the colleges they applied to.
“Children, children, please settle down,” Mr. Nematode began. “No need to get excited, some of you will be denied from every college you applied to, and some of you will be college drop outs. So don’t get your hopes up.”
All the students looked at each other.
The bell rang, and the students left the classroom.
Carly, Sam, and Freddie went to the college office to get their acceptance letters. The line was 40 kids long. Carly and Freddie were eager, Sam wasn’t. In a few minutes Carly, Sam, and Freddie got their letters.
“Okay, so we’re going to open these during our next web show,” Carly confirmed.
Sam and Freddie said, “Yes.”
After school ended Carly went home. Spencer was working on his new sculpture. “Hey Carly,”
he said, “which college did you get into?”
“I didn’t open it yet,” Carly replied.
“I’m going to open it with Sam and Freddie and hope we get into the same college.”
“Which college did you apply to?”
“Cool, so what are ya gonna learn there?”
“You know… stuff.”
“Wanna help me finish my sculpture?”
“Sure.” Carly got up to finish his sculpture. “What’s it supposed to be?”
“A fan of knifes.”
Carly glared at Spencer.
“I put on extra scotch tape.”
The next day, Carly, Sam, and Freddie were doing iCarly.
“… and that’s why the chicken should have never crossed the road,” Sam said.
“Poor chicken,” Carly added. “…AND NOW!”
“…OUR COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE LETTERS!”
Freddie switched to the B-cam and joined Carly and Sam.
“… and now, we open,” Sam said.
Carly, Sam, and Freddie looked and their letters, then at the others. They looked up to the camera
with shocked faces. “We’re not going to the same college,” they said.
