Summary: Amy gets a call from an old friend.
Note: In my ongoing quest to force some kind of character into Sam, I wrote this. I hate it. Sam should by all rights be the main character of UF but she gets the least amount of screen time because I hate writing her. I apparently even hate writing her interacting with a character I like better (in this case, Amy). I have thought about upending the entire main plot line of UF just so I can eliminate her as a character. She is the main reason the actual story isn't done yet. She is the holes. I just don't know where I'm going wrong with Sam or why I hate writing her so much.
