The next day, when the racers went to go pick up their karts, they saw it. They saw the destruction from Ben and Michael. There were crumbs everywhere because of them smashing them so much. Crumbelina dropped to her knees when she saw the hard work they did, ruined. "All of the perfection, RUINED!" complained Crumbelina. "Relax. We can just make new one's." said Taffyta. "Taffyta's right. We have to do this. For Candlehead." Vanellope said. After they made their karts again, they were impressed that they were the exact same as the others. "Cool!" said Jubileena as she high-fived Gloyd. "Alright, racers! Time to practice on 'Licorice Lane'." said Vanellope as she led the racers into Licorice Lane.
When the racers arrived at Licorice Lane, their mouths were wide open. This course was almost as big as Frosty Rally! (third biggest course in Sugar Rush) "Okay. Here's the order for how you'll be lined up. Swizzle and Minty, first. Jubileena and Gloyd, second. Rancis and Candlehead, third. Taffyta and Crumbelina, fourth. Snowanna and Adorabeezle, fifth." instucted Vanellope. "When I say go, that's when you start. You guys will race three times around this course. And remember: you are a team. One avatar drives, and the other grabs the powerups. GO!" shouted Vanellope. When she said GO, all the racers sped off. "Grr! We're never gonna catch up to Minty and Swizzle!" said Jubileena. "That's what YOU think." said Gloyd with a smirk. Jubileena saw him smirk, then she smiled, knowing he had a plan. "Grab the powerup! There's one at three o'clock!" instructed Gloyd. "Awesome! Sugar Rush!" exclaimed Jubileena grabbing the powerup. "Just as predicted. Now I'll tell you when to use it." said Gloyd. "Okey Dokie Lokie!" said Jubileena immitating Pinkie Pie. Gloyd was nearing the ramp, still the same distance from Swizzle and Minty. "NOW!" shouted Gloyd. Immediately, Jubileena shoved the sugar rush powerup on the brakes and the sped up the ramp and landed ten feet infront of Swizzle and Minty, made a sharp turn, then finished the first lap! "YES!" shouted Gloyd pumping his fists. "I knew that you predicted that right! Even if you don't think sometimes!" said Jubileena giggling. Gloyd blushed as red as the cherry on Jubileena's head. "Well, I, uh..." said Gloyd stuttering. Jubileena giggled and grabbed another powerup. "YES! Sweet Seekers!" she said changing the subject. Thank GOBSTOPPERS she changed the subject Gloyd thought. "Okay... now?" asked Jubileena. "If you think so! You're the smart one!" said Gloyd. He shut up RIGHT after he said that. "Aww! Thanks!" said Jubileena blushing a little bit. BANG BANG BANG!She shot the sweet seekers and got a direct hit on Taffyta and Crumbelina, Minty and Swizzle, and Candlehead and Rancis. "YES! Direct hit!" said Jubileena excited. Gloyd looked at Jubileena and smiled. He made a sharp turn and finished the second lap. "YES! We're unstoppable!" shouted Jubileena. RIGHT after she said that, Adorabeezle and Snowanna landed infront of them. Gloyd looked over at Jubileena trying not to laugh. "Not. One. Word." said Jubileena. "I didn't say anything!" said Gloyd starting to laugh. "Powerup! Yes!" said Jubileena changing the subject. "BOO YA!" said Jubileena with a smirk. "Seekers?" asked Gloyd. "Sugar Rush!" said Jubileena with another smirk. "PERFECT! Almost done too." said Gloyd. Jubileena smiled. "Ramp?" asked Jubileena. "Just a sec... NOW!" said Gloyd. Jubileena did what she did before, and this time they passed the finish line! "YES!!!!!!!!!!!!" said Jubileena when she hopped out of the kart. "Nice racin' guys!" complemented Adorabeezle. "Thanks. You too." said Gloyd as the girls walked off discussing racing strategies. "Nice driving, Orangeboar!" said Jubileena giggling. Gloyd frowned, then smirked. "Nice strategies, Bing-Bing." said Gloyd playfully punching her in the arm. Jubileena giggled, then hugged him. Gloyd blushed harder then he did before. Then when Jubileena let go, she kissed Gloyd on the cheek! Gloyd was blushing like crazy! Jubileena giggled again. As Vanellope hopped down from the ledge she was watching, she saw the other racers far behind. "You guys are gonna represent this course!" said Vanellope. "YES!" Gloyd and Jubileena said together smiling and high-fiving each other. "I'll tell the others when they finish." said Vanellope. When the racers arrived, Vanellope gave the news, and the other racers were fine with it. "Now let's get to Lollipop Way!" instructed Vanellope leading the way. Minty looked at Swizzle, and it looked like his eyes got 5x bigger! "We've got this Swizz!" said Minty fist-pumping Swizzle.
When they arrived at Lollipop Way, they lined up in the same order as last time. Minty and Swizzle looked at each other with a smirk on their face. "GO!" Vanellope screamed. The racers sped away again at full speed. Minty and Swizzle were in first place. Swizzle, driving, and Minty, handling powerups. "Hey! Powerup!" said Minty grabbing a powerup. "What is it?" asked Swizzle focusing on the road. "Ala mode!" said Minty smirking. Swizzle looked over and saw Minty turned around, looking for targets. Her hair was blowing in the wind, so Swizzle was interested. Taffyta and Crumbelina were coming up closer. "Hey, could you pull up a bit, Swizzz?" asked Minty. "Try me." Swizzle said as he raced faster. SPLAT! Minty shot the ice cream off the cone and it got a direct hit for Taffyta and Crumbelina. "LIKE A BOSS!" said Minty. No one seemed to be coming closer, so Minty grabbed another powerup for the fun of it. "Hey, that looks new." commented Swizzle. "Lemme try it." said Minty as she threw the powerup into the air. A forcefield went around the kart. "Cool!" they both said at the same time. They didn't get a good look at it. Since the other racers were still far behind, Minty was gazing at the forcefield in awe. She froze when she saw it was in the shape of a heart! (like the sweet hearts candy...nothing destroys true love! XD) Minty's eyes grew wide. Swizzle drove up a ramp and they both pretended it was a roller coaster, putting their hands up. As Swizzle landed, they finished the first lap. Minty checked for racers, but there weren't any. "Huh. Weird." commented Minty. "What's up?" asked Swizzle. "No racers. Must be all stuck on the twists and turns." said Minty. "True." said Swizzle. Minty grabbed another powerup just in case. "Cool! SugarRush! Wanna use it Swizz?" asked Minty. Swizzle nodded letting Minty shove the SugarRush powerup into the pedal. They both sped up at super high speed. It was a LOT faster than a normal SugarRush in their kingdom. They both hugged each other tightly, and screamed REALLY loud. The rejected avatars heard it and started laughing as hard as they could. They wizzed passed the finish line and finished lap two. "HOLY GINGERSNAPS!" shouted Minty as Swizzle took control over the kart again. "You're tellin' me!" said Swizzle. The racers were REALLY far behind now. Minty started to move over closer to Swizzle. He didn't seem to notice so she moved closer. "Hey!" said Swizzle. Minty shot her head up and screamed. "You scared me!" said Minty. "Okay then! I guess you don't wanna know that we're close to winning!" Swizzle said with a smirk. "We are?!?!" said Minty in disbelief. She smiled, as Swizzle crossed the finish line. They both hopped out of the kart as Vanellope climbed down. "You guys are gonna represent this course!" she announced to them. "LIKE A BOSS!" said Minty and started doing Gangnam Style. Swizzle joined in and they were having a blast. They stopped to see that the others were close to finishing. Minty quickly hugged Swizzle, and kissed him on the cheek. She turned around, and her eyes lit up like a Chrimstas Tree. She didn't see that behind her, Swizzle was doing a happy dance. After Vanellope made the announcement to the other racers once they finished. "Now time to go to Cake Canyon!" said Vanellope. "OH MY GOSH!" said Candlehead jumping up and down. Rancis rolled his eyes smiling, knowing they would win this.
Once they arrived at Cake Canyon, Candlehead's eyes lit up like the flame on her head. Rancis looked over and smiled. The racers got in the same order like always, and they started up their karts. "GO!" shouted Vanellope. The racers blasted away from the finish line. Candlehead and Rancis were in first place. "YES! We're gonna win this for sure!" shouted Candlehead grabbing a powerup. It was Sweet Seekers! "Seekers?" asked Rancis looking over. "Yep!" said Candlehead looking at Rancis with her smile. Rancis was almost hypnotized by Candlehead's smile, but he focused on the race so he wouldn't let her down. BANG BANG BANG. Candlehead got a direct hit on Swizzle and Minty, Adorabeezle and Snowanna, and Gloyd and Jubileena. "YES! BOO YA!" said Candlehead doing a little dance in the kart. "Nice shot!" complemented Rancis high-fiving Candlehead. Candlehead smiled. All of a sudden, Taffyta and Crumbelina passed them! "WHAT THE?!?!?!" asked Rancis. "SugarRush!" said Taffyta with a smirk as they sped off. Candlehead's flame grew a LOT bigger because she was angry. "AFTER THEM!... PLEASE!" she exclaimed. Rancis sped up at full speed, (which was really fast) and Candlehead grabbed a powerup. "YES! SUGAR RUSH!" shouted Candlehead shoving the powerup into the pedal making them blast as fast as a rocket! (not literally) They sped past the finish line, finishing lap one, and they sped past Taffyta and Crumbelina. They were close to finishing lap two when they got back to normal speed. "LET'S DO THAT AGAIN!" exclaimed Candlehead with her eyes lit up. "Unless if you get a powerup, we can't!" said Rancis as he finished lap two. "Aha!" said Candlehead grabbing a powerup. "YES!!!!!!!!! SUGAR RUSH!" said Candlehead shoving it into the pedal doing an evil (yet adorable) laugh. "Oh Icebreakers NOOOOOO!" shouted Rancis as they went rocket speed again. "WOO-HOO!" screamed Candlehead as they crossed the finish line in first. Candlehead hopped out of the kart, but Rancis was still holding on for dear life. Candlehead giggled and smiled, and her sweetness snapped Rancis back into reality. He hopped out of the kart, ran over to Candlehead, and hugged her. Candlehead hugged him back and quickly kissed him on the cheek again. Rancis blushed, and then Vanellope scurried down the ledge. "You guys are gonna represent this course!" said Vanellope. "Yay!" said Candlehead as she skipped off to watch the race. Vanellope followed her. "Rancis! You comin'?" asked Candlehead. "Yeah! Just a sec!" responded Rancis. He felt the cheek Candlehead kissed and said to himself, "I am never washing this cheek again!" Vanellope gave the other racers the news when they finished the race. "Their last course is Taffy Towers." said Vanellope. "YES!" screamed Taffyta as they headed off for Taffy Towers.
Secretly, they didn't know, but when they left to go to Taffy Towers, Paul and Geordy were watching from inside a cake. "So, you think they'll beat us?" asked Paul. "Not a chance." said Geordy. "After all, we DO have Kyle's secret weapon for the races." said Geordy smirking. Paul nodded smirking as well. The two guys headed off to spy on them again in Taffy Towers.
