Chapter 1: I see a mermaid
Carly walked up to her new room. This was where she would be for the rest of her summer vacation.
She figured the best thing to do was to get used to it.
She went over to the window to see through the view.
There, on the beach, she saw something incredible.
“Omg,” Carly said, softly. “Spencer!”
“Yeah?!” Spencer yelled.
“Come up here!”
“Hold on a moment!”
Carly saw the incredible thing wiping off all the water, then growing legs, and moving away.
There was another one there too though, still swimming in the water.
“No Spencer, come here now, HURRY!” Carly screamed, not wanting the other one to go away.
“I’m kinda busy! Can’t you wait?!”
How could this wait? There, on the beach, was a mermaid.
Chapter 2: Meet Zane
By the time Spencer had come back upstairs, it was too late. Both mermaids had wiped all the water off of them and mysteriously turned into humans. One's hair color even changed from red to blond.
Carly had to come up with a good excuse for making Spencer come all the way up here.
However, she just said, "The-there wwww-was a mermaid."
"Carly," Spencer said. "You sound a lot like my new friend named Zane."
"There really was one there."
"That's what he said," Spencer grabbed Carly by the wrist and pulled her down the stairs, towards the front door. "Hey Freddie, Sam, I'm taking Carly to meet my new friend Zane."
"Okay," said Sam.
"If he falls in love with you, don't fall for it," Freddie said.
"Freddie," Carly said.
"I love you more."
"How do you know, Freddork?" Sam pulled him by his underpants back and forth on a rug. "Ah. I could do this for a living."
Eventually, Carly and Spencer ended up at this Zane person's house.
"Hi Zane," Spencer said.
"Hi," said this Zane person.
Carly was surprised. "Spencer," she whispered. "He's British!"
"Yeah I know," said Spencer. "Don't you remember where we are?"
Carly thought about it. "No you never told us."
"Zane, this is my little sister Carly," said Spencer.
"You two have a lot in common, you claim to have seen something that doesn't exist."
"Hey," Zane and Carly said together. "I really did see a mermaid!"
They widened their eyes at each other. "You saw a mermaid too?"
"Everybody else thinks I'm crazy," said Zane.
"Me too," Carly said. "Well, not everybody else. I only told Spencer."
"I'll leave you two fantasy thinkers alone," said Spencer, closing the door.
"Spencer!" Carly tried.
"Together, you and I could prove it to the world," said Zane.
"Good point, I do have a web show."
"A web show?" Zane was amazed. "This is perfect."
Chapter 3: Catching them
"Where did you see them?" Zane asked.
"Out in the water closest to my rented house."
"Now we have an idea of where they are, perfect."
"Now the only question is," Carly said. "How do we do it?"
"I've got a plan."
Zane slept over that night. The next day when he and Carly woke up, they looked out the window again.
The mermaids were there. Their faces were barely noticeable but Carly put her camera on zoom.
She took the picture. She wondered if there were only three of them, what if there were more?
"Let me see the picture," Zane said.
"No," said Carly. "You'll have to wait until the next episode of iCarly just like everybody else."
"When is that?"
"What a minute," said Zane. "Did you say iCarly?"
"Yes," said Carly. "What? Do you see it here in the UK?"
Carly was surprised. Why did nobody tell her there was a British iCarly?
Chapter 4: Cleo and Rikki
After that, she and Sam went shopping.
Sam had snuck Freddy's credit card.
"I don't see why Freddy's mom lets him get a credit card if he only gets 10 dollars of monthly allowance," said Sam.
"She doesn't," said Carly. "Freddy saved up his money and bought one himself."
Sam almost laughed. "Still though... Freddy? A credit card? That’s available almost anywhere in the world?"
They walked into the mall.
"I don't care," said a voice. "I want this dress so I can take Lewis out to dinner."
"You're almost always focused on Lewis, Cleo," said another voice. "Don't you remember how he almost revealed our secret to that marine biologist?"
"Why can't you just let that go, Rikki? It's over with now," said the voice called Cleo. "And what about you?"
"What do you mean what about me?"
"Oh you know, Zane has gotten even closer to discovering our secret."
"Hey, I don't like him any-"
"Hello?" Carly said. "Who are you guys?"
"I'm Cleo," said the first voice.
"And I'm Rikki," said the second voice.
"Nice to meet you," said Cleo.
"Hey, has anybody named Zane ever talked to you?" Carly asked.
"Yes," said Cleo. "Why?"
"He mentioned two people who look like you."
"You've seen him before?"
"Yeah," Carly said. "You may not believe in his theory about mermaids, but he and I have proof."
"You're not serious, right?" Cleo said.
"No, I am, and we're gonna show it on our web show, iCarly today."
"Oh," said Rikki. "I've seen iCarly before. You s are funny."
Cleo looked at Rikki with a look that said "what's wrong with you? Can’t you see something's going on here?"
"Well, we have to go now," said Rikki. "We'll be sure to watch it though."
She grabbed Cleo by the wrist. "Come on Cleo, let's go tell Emma about this."
"Bye," said Carly. "Nice meeting you."
Chapter 5: Telling Emma
Cleo and Rikki walked to Emma's house.
"Hi," Cleo said to Emma's mom. "Is Emma home?"
"Why yes she is, in fact she's upstairs right now," Emma's mom said.
"Hi, mum," said Emma, walking down the stairs. "Hey guys."
"Hey Emma," said Cleo.
"Allow me, Cleo," said Rikki. She walked up to Emma. "Hi Emma. Guess what's on iCarly tonight."
"Oh I don't watch iCarly."
"You might want to watch it tonight though."
"Zane and Carly teamed up together and got a picture of mermaids, and they're gonna show it on iCarly tonight. What do you think about that?"
"Mermaids?" Emma's mother laughed. "Yes, I'll be sure to check that out."
"No mum, don't," said Emma.
"I'll tell you all about how it goes. You have enough to do as it is."
"Oh, why, thank you Emma."
"This is really bad," Emma whispered to Rikki.
"You think I didn't figure that out yet?" Rikki said.
"What was that?"
"Nothing, mum. Now go start dinner, I'll go to iCarly.com to see if it's started yet."
Chapter 6: iCarly
"Hello people of Earth, the moon, Saturn, Uranus, and London," said Carly. "I'm Carly."
"I'm Saam," said Sam.
"And tonight, we're going to prove that mermaids do exist," said Carly. "So you better listen to your six year olds because all we have to do now is prove fairies are real and then they can go on believing all they want."
"This is it," said Zane, watching iCarly on his computer.
"Freddie, show the picture," said Carly.
And there it was; an actual picture of Cleo, Emma, and Rikki.
Downstairs, Spencer watched and couldn't help but run upstairs and hug Carly. "I'm sorry I ever doubted you."
"It's okay, but Spencer," she said.
"Yeah?" Spencer asked.
"We're still rolling!" Carly said.
"Oh right," he let her go and ran back downstairs.
"And that proves once and for all that mermaids exist," Carly said.
"Yes!" Zane was so happy.
Cleo was so sad. This was it; their secret really was proven.
