(A/N: I do not own Norma Terumi. She is the love interest of my Turbo page on Facebook, and she requested that I write her in. I believe she is a Naruto OC or something like that.)
"I can't believe we came out of hiding just to face the fact that Turbo's dead." the tall, lean racer clad in blue leaned against a wall with a look of utter dejection on his face.
"It's not guaranteed." replied his identical twin. "Set, we don't know for sure . . ."
Set glared at his brother. "Jet, what are his odds of surviving a shower in boiling Diet Coke?" he snapped, making the other cringe.
"It depends on how fast the game was reset." Jet answered somewhat quietly, his voice full of childish hope. "He mighta had time to regenerate."
Set stifled the urge to roll his eyes. "Be realistic, Jet."
His brother sighed. "I am being realistic. It's a total possibility."
"No, it's not . . . the universe doesn't work like that!" Set wasn't meaning to get mad, but he couldn't really help it. He had talked his twin into coming out of hiding in the hopes of seeing their older brother again, but now it seemed like an unlikely and childish dream.
"It does sometimes." Jet argued, knowing full well that he was on the losing end but unable to give up the hope.
They both just gave up arguing and sat on the floor of Game Central Station with a great sigh. Neither really wanted to give up their argument, but neither wanted to hurt the other's ego too much by winning the argument.
Neither noticed when a tallish brunette approached them. "Hi, I'm Norma Terumi." she introduced herself with a small smile. "It's my first time in GCS and . . . I'm kind of lost."
Jet was the first to answer. "Well, what do you need to find?" he asked glumly.
"Sugar Rush Speedway. I'm supposed to do a favor for the leader of that game."
"It's on the other side of GCS. By the Whack-A-Mole." Set pointed in the direction.
"Thanks." Norma smiled and was on her way.
"I assume you're Vanellope von Schweetz."
Vanellope nodded. "And you're Norma from the new Naruto game?"
"Yep, that's me."
Vanellope studied her for a moment before nodding and glitching into a standing position, trying to look official. Norma couldn't help but wonder how such a little kid with a glitch could possibly be in charge of an entire world.
"Well, I need you to do me a favor. Y'see, I have a student, and his brothers may or may not still be alive. They're kinda tall and skinny, wear blue, gray skin, yellow eyes and teeth . . . kinda like zombies!"
Norma blinked. "Twins?" she asked, hoping that the boys she'd seen were the ones that fit the description.
"Yeah!" Vanellope grinned widely.
"Oh, I saw 'em earlier. They're on the other side of Game Central Station. Moping by Street Fighters."
Vanellope clapped her hands excitedly and used her glitch to teleport randomly around the room, looking like a kid that lived off of sugar . . . which she probably did, anyway. "Awesome! Thank you!"
"Want me to get them for you?"
"That'd be great!" Vanellope couldn't wipe the grin off her face. "But make sure they come around after arcade hours, 'cause we're about to open."
Norma nodded. "Gotcha." She left with a quiet smirk as Vanellope jumped up and down excitedly.
