Prologue

 

Ralph's VO

 

Well I don't even know where to begin...I've never known anyone who died and then couldn't come back to life...But now she was taking a train from Game Central Station to the saddest occasion ever...a funeral for a best friend.

 

As I rode the train to the funeral, I buried my head in my hands and for the first time in my life, I began to cry a little bit. This funeral shouldn't even be happening in the first place.

 

I remember the day I discovered that my best friend died. I was walking through GCS, and everyone was reading the newspaper.

 

Curiously enough, I went to the vendor, and I bought a paper. I read through it, and suddenly I stopped cold at a headline that totally blew my mind.

 

The headlint simply read "Sugar Rush Racer Dies in Racing Accident". Now I read the article, but my head almost exploded. The picture was of Vanellope Von Schweetz, my best friend ever besides Felix.

 

I dropped the newspaper suddenly, and shook my head disbelievingly. *This couldn't be happening, not sweet little Vanellope.* I thought to myself.

 

But lo and behold, there was my sweet Vanellope's picture, with a caption that read.

 

"Vanellope Von Schweetz, 17, was found dead when her go-kart crashed during a random roster race in Sugar Rush on Tuesday night." the caption read.

 

My heart sank to my feet almost. She looked so different to me. Her outfit was the same, just a slimmer, sexier version of it. Her long black hair was down with a few bits of candy still stuck in it.
