I really liked this movie. Mostly because I'm a huge videogame fanatic. This pairing caught my eye and I was inspired to write this. Enjoy!
Everyone was apologizing to me even though I said I forgave them.
Once everyone finally shut it Candlehead asked, "So, what do we do about the random roster race?"
I thought for a second and said, "We'll just have another one, duh. Besides I think that last race worked out pretty unfair." I say with a smile. "Are we all in agreement?" I ask. Everyone agrees and I'm so excited to get back on the race track. We all our karts for a quick lap to determine today's avatars.
I kept getting this weird feeling like I was being watched. I look behind me and see Rancis looking at me. I tilt my head in confusion. His face turned red, he smiled, and he looked away from me and hoped in his kart. "Huh, weird." I say to myself as I get in my kart. Why would Rancis be looking at me?
I look over again to see Rancis looking at himself in a side mirror of his kart. I roll my eyes. And he's back again. We start up our engines and watch the countdown.
3… 2… 1… Go!
I put my pedal to the floor and I passed several people up. I was leading the pack. Taffyta was on my tail until she got knocked out by a sweet seeker. Then, in my mirror, I see Rancis. I try to remain my lead. We are the only two in sight. I can win this. Then out of nowhere my kart gets stopped by a sweet heart lodged in the road. The announcer said, "Sweet Heart Stopper!" Rancis stopped next to my kart.
"See you at the finish line, sweetheart." He says with a grin and winks at me and zooms off. "What in the name of…" I start but, I refocus myself when I get put back on the track. I get a crate to allow myself the glitch ahead. I wait 'til I get to the finish line and see Rancis looking at himself in the mirror.
I get close and shout, "Hey Rancis McVain! Check this out!" I glitch and get first place. He looked shocked. I got out of my kart and started to celebrate. The announcer's voice rang through the arena, "Vanellope von Schweets, the winner!" I'm celebrating as I stand on my kart holding my trophy above my head and every one cheered. I've waited so long for this day.
I looked at my fellow racers cheering for my victory and then I see Rancis standing by his kart. He was leaning up against the kart with his arms crossed and giving me a smirk. Really? I just whooped Rancis's handsome, vain butt and he's actually smiling at me. What is wrong with him? Also, did I just say he was handsome? Well, I have to admit, even when he picked on me when King Candy was leader I still thought he was cute. Then, we were interrupted by a quarter alert.
Awesome! My first day as President Vanellope von Schweets.
The arcade closed and I hoped out of my kart. Tomorrow the arcade will be closed because of a new game being added. So, we all kind of get the day off.
"Hey Vanellope, we were going to hang out by the coconut grass fields. Wanna come along?" Minty asks me. "Yeah sounds awesome!" I say. It feels nice to have them as my friends. As we are walking and talking I notice something. "Where are the guys?" I ask. Taffyta takes the sucker out of her mouth smiles and says, "Just wait, you'll see." We walk along and I here talking from something other than us. I look to my right and see a sign 'Welcome to the lemonade lagoon.' I hear a splash and laughing and shouting."Nice one Rancis!" I hear someone familiar say: Swizzle.
"Stop." I say and everyone listens to me. "I wanna see this." I say. "Me too." Sticky agrees quickly.
Soon everyone follows me. I walk through the branches and see the guys out of their racing get up and in a normal pair of shorts. They were diving off a cliff into the lagoon. "What are they doing?" I ask quietly. I hear Taffyta reply, "They're boys. When they hang out they either do something gross or something stupid." "In this case, I assume stupid." I say. "Bingo." She says and we both laugh. Then they hear us.
"Hey girls! Come to cliff dive with us or are you too scared?" Gloyd says and laughs. "Yeah right. We're not scared. We're just smarter than you." Taffyta says smugly. "Whatever, At least we know how to really have fun. Now watch this." Swizzle says and runs to the top of the cliff and does a flip off it into the lagoon. He gets Taffyta soaked. Swizzle just smiles and laughs. All three guys start laughing and I smile.
It was pretty funny.
She screamed and started crying and ran away. Everyone ran after her except me. "So, are you gonna hang with us?" A familiar voices asks. I turn around and see Rancis smiling at me with a questioning eyebrow raised. "No, I don't want to encroach in your guys' bonding." I say with a laugh.
"Rancis your turn c'mon!" Gloyd yells impatiently.
"Hold on! Well, night sweetheart." He says and smiles at me before walking away. I get into trees and here Gloyd say, "Finally! I thought you'd never stop talking to princess Vanellope." "She's the president you dolt." Rancis says back. "Hey let's stop talking about Rancis's girlfriend." Swizzle says mockingly.
"She's not my…" Rancis starts but, they laugh at him. I look back through the trees and see Rancis… embarrassed? Seriously, am I missing something? I walk away and catch up to the group who is trying to make Taffyta stop crying. She is such a cry baby.
Finally, we get her to stop and we spend a couple of hours in the coconut grass fields. They are amazing and I had so much fun hanging out with my new friends. We all sat in a circle and started talking.
Then Sticky says, "Think the guys are still back there?" Everyone laughs except me.
"What?" I ask Candlehead quietly.
"Sticky likes Swizzle." She snickers. I burst out laughing and everyone stares at me. "No way! You like Swizzle!" I struggle to get out between laughs and then give in and burst out laughing again. Everyone laughed even harder this time. I was on the ground holding my stomach I was laughing so hard.
After more teasing, Sticky smiles at me like she knew something. It didn't look mean just kind of humorous. I asked, "What are you looking at?" "Oh nothing. Except about you and a certain 2nd placer." She snickers. "Huh?" I say confused. "Nothing, forget I said anything." Sticky says and laughs to herself.
We finally all got tired and decided to go home. I got to the castle and Sour Bill greeted me flatly, "Good evening President Vanellope."
"Hey Sour Bill." I reply back still puzzled by what went on. He saw this and said, "What is it President?"
"Nothing, I'm just going to look around before I go to bed." I say. "As you wish." Sour Bill says in his usual tone. I walk through the halls looking for the code vault.
I need to find out something or else it's going to drive me crazy. I get into the code vault and I tie the licorice rope around myself and tie the other end to a pillar in the narrow hallway. I open the vault door and jump into the room. I search all over until I found the code I wanted: Rancis Fluggerbutter.
This feels wrong. I should just ask him why he is acting so weird when I'm there.
Aw, but I need to know!
I tap his code and open up his profile in his code. I scan the whole thing and everything seems normal until I see something weird under his likes section: Likes: racing, winning, and Vanellope von Schweets. "What?" I say to myself. I tap my name and it takes me to this brief description.
It says, 'Rancis Fluggerbutter may like himself almost as much as winning a race but, he has a special spot in his heart for the feelings he has for the leader of 'Sugar Rush', Vanellope von Schweets.'
I quickly closed the code and got out of there. I ran past Sour Bill to my room and lay down on my bed.
I was trying to sort through it all until it all made sense. Blushing when he sees me, winking at me, calling me sweetheart. Rancis has a crush on me. I don't know whether to be happy or freaked out.
"What am I going to do?" I say to myself and put my hands over my face.
So, what do you think? Please review and thanks for reading. (:
