Brad: Hey, man. I miss you. What have you been up to?
Freddie: Hi, I miss you too. I'm sorry I haven't really hung around you at school. I'm just having a really hard time adjusting to everyone being gone. Even my mom misses them. And that's saying something.
Brad: I know, I miss them too. It's so weird not seeing them in the halls or in class...
Brad: Have you talked to either of them at all?
Freddie: I video chatted with Carly after she landed, and I talked to Sam on the phone. I just miss them :(
Brad: How are they doing? I didn't want to bug them so I haven't talked to them yet...
Freddie: Carly's really excited about being with her dad, but she says she misses us already. Spencer, especially. Sam's loving the motorcycle. Says she's ready for something new to pass the time, but she said if we forget about her she'll find us and wield her butter sock. So, same old :)
Freddie: How have YOU been?
Brad: I'm glad they're doing well :) That motorcycle was perfect for Sam, honestly.
Brad: And I'm... good. I'm good. I think the break we all sort of had helped me clear my head a little more. Either way, the flashbacks are a lot less frequent now.
Freddie: That's good, I'm glad. Uh... Are you ready to see me again? I'm lonelier than ever now, and I could use my best friend if he wants me :)
Brad: My empty lunch table is always open for you ;) Stop eating in the AV room and come sit with me!
Brad: Also a sleepover is long overdue. Hint hint nudge nudge
Freddie: Well, my door is always open. Come and make yourself at home! I miss you, little bro.
