The Plight of the Rush

By Cinndon_Sodagard

Romance / Action

Ch 1; Another Day at the Office

Vanellope Von Schweetz zoomed across the finish line to secure victory in today's Random Roster Race. She pumped her fists in the air as her cart came to a stop.

'Yes, another win in the bag' she though to herself.

As she turned around, she saw the racers who took second and third place, Rancis Fluggerbutter and Jubileena Bing-Bing, cross the finish line. Vanellope jumped out of her cart to go congratulate the other racers for another great race.

Rancis came to a stop a few feet after the finish line, off to the right a bit. Before he could get out of his cart, Vanellope came up to him, slightly surprising him.

“Nice Racing out there Fluggerbutt.” Vanellope said as she walked toward his cart.

“T-Thanks Vanellope.” he replied, surprised. “Congrads on the win.”

“Thanks Rancis, it was a close one.” she said.

“Yes it was, Maybe I will beat you next time.” he interjected.

“We will see about that Fluggerbutt.”

“Yes we will.”

Vanellope started walking over toward Jubileena, who surprisingly came in third place in today's race. Normally she would be behind Taffyta Muttonfudge and Candlehead.

“Hey Jubileena. Nice job snagging third place today!” Vanellope said.

“Thanks Vanellope, it was easier to do when Taffyta crashed.” Jubi started.

“She crashed?” asked Vanellope.

“Yep, Candlehead cut her off on the cake, so she came up short on the ramp there.” Jubi replied

“Darn, how did you get past Candlehead?”

“I got the better of her towards the end of the caves, managed to pull ahead of her.” Jubi said.

While Vanellope and Jubileena continued talking, Rancis was sitting in his cart, stuck in a love stare at Vanellope, with his face as red as the cherry on Jubi's head For the longest while, he has had a crush on Vanellope, but has been too shy to ask her out, fearing that she didn't like him back.

'I wish I knew the right words to say to you' Rancis though to himself as he sighed.

The others heard him sigh as they turned back around at him. Rancis jumped a bit, but quickly drove away, hoping Vanellope didn't see how red he was.

“Whats melted his chocolate?” Vanellope asked.

“I'm not sure, but I think I saw him blushing more red then my cherry.” Jubi replied.

“Well I'm throwing a big get together tonight for all the girls. Why don't you join us?” asked Vanellope.

“Sounds like a great idea.” Jubi said. “I will go fish Taffyta out of that cupcake and bring her along.

“Isn't that the same cupcake she crashed into last year?” Vanellope asked, referring to the day Turbo was defeated.

“I think so, I got hit with a scoop of ice cream that day so all I know is from what I heard from the others.” Jubi replied.

“Okay, well see you at the castle tonight.” Vanellope yelled as she ran back to her cart.

“Vanellope, Wait a sec!” Jubi yelled back.

Vanellope jumped into her cart and turned back to Jubileena

“What is it Jubi?” she asked.

“Me and Swizz are holding a small celebration at the bar if you want to join us!” Jubi said.

“Sounds Fun, I will be there!” Vanellope replied before driving off toward her castle.

1 Hour Later

Rancis drove up to The Chocolate Bar, the Sugar Rush local pub and hangout spot for the racers. As he walked in and looked around, he saw all the racers celebrating the 1 year anniversary of Turbo's Defeat. He walked up to the bar and sat down. Swizzle Malarkey, one of the bar's Co-owners, and a good friend to Rancis walked up to him from behind the bar.

“What can I get you Rancis?” he asked.

“A Chocolate Milk please.” Rancis replied as he turned around to look at the crowd.

His eyes landed back on Vanellope, who was chatting off to the side with Taffyta. He smiled as he leaned his back on the bar, as he continued to let the sight of Vanellope mesmerize him. He was cut off after a minute when Swizzle came back with his chocolate milk.

“You eyeing someone special Rancis?” Swizzle said, causing Rancis to jump a bit.

“Why do you ask?” Rancis replied, defensively.

“Well it was quite obvious with the way you were looking.” Swizzle explained as he handed Rancis his drink. “Who were you eyeing?” he asked with a slight smug on his face.

“It was that obvious?” Rancis asked

Swizzle shook his head as Rancis sighed.

“If you must know, it was Vanellope.” he finished as he looked down at his drink.

“Rancis Fluggerbutter, do you have a crush on President Vanellope?” Swizzle whispered.

Rancis's face began to turn red at the very sound of her name. Swizzle's eyes glowed as he smiled.

“You sly dog.” he said as he patted Rancis's shoulder. “Have you asked her out yet?” he asked as he leaned in closer.

“No, I haven't” Rancis started. “I'm afraid that she wont like me like that.”

“Do you know that for sure?” Swizzle asked.

“No, but..” Rancis started before Swizzle cut him off.

“Then go ask her.” Swizzle exclamed.

“But what if she doesn't like me?” Rancis argued.

Swizzle Sighed. “Okay, how about after the celebration, Me, You and Gloyd all go out to Tappers? We can discuss a game plan for you”

“Fine.” Rancis replied as he took a drink.

“Swizzle, can you believe that its been a full year sense Turbo was defeated?”

“Honestly, no I don't Rancis” he replied. “Its crazy that a year ago, we all hated Vanellope, but I'm glad we could put all that behind us.”

Rancis looked back down at his drink in shame. “Still doesn't mean that some of us still regret everything that happened.” he replied.

Swizzle put a hand on Rancis's shoulder, causing him to look up.

“I know, I still feel bad about it too, but the best thing we can do is try to make up for it.”

Rancis smiled a bit. “Yeah, I guess your right about that one.” he replied as he took another drink.

The celebration lasted another hour. Afterward, Rancis, Gloyd and Swizzle all left Sugar Rush for Tapper's as the girls all drifted toward Vanellope's Castle.
