Great article @stefanierambow!
This sounds very similar to “see you soon!” in American English (not sure if it is like this for other native English speaking countries). It could mean see you in a few minutes, see you next year, or no idea when I’ll see you, but hopefully soon! Same goes for “be there soon!” - could mean in a few minutes, hours, days, months, etc. The only difference, I think, is that the person receiving this message knows exactly when you’ll be there.
So if I say to a friend back home “see you soon!” as I am leaving California, they know that it probably means in a year or so .
