Hii can you do one where Betty is in denial about her feelings so Veronica and jughead fake date to get her to show her true feelings?
This ones cute! I’m gonna kind of spin it where both Betty and jughead don’t realize the others feelings.
“Are you sure this is such a good idea?” Jughead winced, rubbing the back of his neck as Veronica gripped his free hand with hers, dragging him into pops.
Kevin was walking beside the pair, rolling his eyes.
“Of course it is Jughead, you want Betty to be happy don’t you?” Kevin smirked raising a brow in question.
Jughead lifted his head sharply and nodded
“Obviously I do.” He growled “but do we really think Archie is the guy for her? His track record isn’t that great with Betty. I mean I know you guys say she’s like in love with him or whatever.” He trailed off mumbling, his eyes darkening at the thought before he continued “..but come on, Archie’s my best friend but Betty deserves better, she deserves someone who’s going to be all about her. Someone who notices when she’s not eating because of her anxiety, or when she flicks her fingers because she’s excited, or even when..” Jughead was smiling now, thinking about the beautiful blonde, Veronica cut him off.
“Well Betty told me she was interested in someone, she wouldn’t tell me who, but she mentioned he would never feel the same way so she couldn’t tell him.” Veronica cut a glance over to Kevin who was smirking at Jughead “we can only assume that’s Archie based off of history, so once she sees us as together, ya know an unexpected couple, she’ll be filled with courage and finally tell him. It’s fool proof.” Veronica nodded proudly.
“I don’t get how pretending we’re a couple is going to affect her at all, but whatever. If it helps bets I’ll give it a try.”
Veronica smiled, pulling him through the doors.
“That’s the spirit.”
Kevin snorted, immediately spotting the red head and the blonde. He pulled veronica towards him and whispered for only her to hear
“Operation bughead is a go. Carry on soldier.”
Veronica flipped her long black hair and wrapped herself around Jughead as he stiffened, Veronica knew this was uncomfortable for him, he only ever let Betty get that close. She felt bad for half a second before she noticed the way her beautiful best friend was staring at them from the booth in the corner.
Oh this was gonna be fun.
Veronica practically squealed.
“Betty! Archiekins! We had no idea you were going to be here! We just wanted to stop by for a milkshake, Jughead just took me on the absolute best date. Right Juggiekins?” She put on her very best puppy dog eyes staring at the dark haired boy.
He just shrugged and nodded
“Yeah, it was great.”
The boy needed to take some acting lessons, she rolled her eyes sliding in across from the pair sitting practically on top of Jughead.
Archie seemed to be choking on his fries as he asked
“You two are dating? Like together? Together together?”
Veronica nodded happily
“It’s new, but yes. We’re a couple.”
Betty seemed close to tears, as she smiled shakily at the pair
“Congratulations you guys.”
Jughead eyed the way her fingernails dug into her palms, ducking his head to meet her eyes he frowned, Betty responded by pulling her sleeves over her hands and smiling sadly.
Woah, she was hiding from him. She never hid from him. What was going on?
Veronica felt awful, her heart hurting at causing her best friend pain, but it had to be done or nothing would change.
“Anyway” she continued “what are you two up too?”
Archie looked pissed and just shrugged his shoulder, nodding at the paper in front of them
“Homework” he grumbled, getting up he began walking over to the counter. “I’m getting a soda, Anyone want anything?”
Betty shook her head, going back to her own work. Veronica nodded
“I’ll take a cherry coke, and jughead he’ll have what he always has, a burger and a Pepsi.” She rolled her eyes
“A coke. ” Betty whispered from her side of the booth. Archie looked over to her and raised a brow “what?”
She looked up locking eyes on Veronica
“He likes coke, he hates Pepsi. It tastes flat, and don’t forget he doesn’t like ketchup, pops always puts it on the burgers, you have to clarify. You’re his girlfriend shouldn’t you know that?” Betty bit out, resting her pen on the table and pushing her shoulders back.
Veronica raised a brow, laying her hands flat on the table and smiling, here we go.
“I know plenty about Jughead, Betty. He’s my boyfriend.”
Betty tightened her pony tail
“Oh yeah? Well do you know he hates to sit on the outside of the booth? Kind of like your forcing him too right now. Or how about the fact that he never once has eaten a piece of broccoli. Do you help sew his beanie back together when it gets holes? Since you’re his girlfriend you obviously pack an extra sandwich for lunch because you know how hungry he gets. Did you know that he’s probably the best person in this entire world?” Her lips were trembling and she stood abruptly “Im sorry, I have to go. Excuse me.” She bolted out of the booth, wrapping her arms around herself as she sprinted out the door.
“Betty!” Veronica called.
Jughead was out of the booth in seconds flat, following the blonde quickly. His phone long forgotten.
He caught up to the gorgeous, crying blonde about half way down Main Street.
“Betty!” He called nearly bumping into her, grabbing her wrist with his hand and spinning her around, taking in her watery eyes and red nose he felt his heart ache.
“What’s the matter bets? What happened?” He whispered
She looked into his eyes with a shaky breath
“I’m happy for you Juggie. I’m happy you’re happy. I just… I don’t know. I can’t… what does she have that I don’t?” She knew she sounded pathetic but she was too far gone.
He looked absolutely confused.
“What? Who? Veronica? Betty I…”
She cut him off
“I know I’m damaged, and I know I’m just a whole bunch of baggage but I can be good for you. I know you Jughead, more than she does, and okay I’m not as stunning or exotic as she is, but maybe if I wore tighter..”
It was his turn to cut her off , pressing his lips to hers and flexing his fingers on her waist.
Perfect. Jughead hated that word, but this moment with her lips on his, her hands pressed into his chest, her soft honey blonde hair tickling his cheeks, it was perfect.
Pulling away to smile at the dazed girl next door, he tucked her hands in his and nuzzled his nose into hers.
“Veronica and me were pretending, she wanted you to see that anything could happen so you would gain enough courage to ask Archie out.”
She pulled away a confused expression marring her face
“Archie? Why would I want Archie. That’s history.”
He tugged her back into him
“I don’t want Veronica, I don’t want anyone. I want you. I want you and now that I have you, I’m not giving you up. You’re everything to me.”
She smiled waterey eyed, as she pressed a soft kiss on his lips
“I’m not losing you either Jughead.”
He smiled, intertwining their fingers as they walked back to pops
“Come on l, I think we owe Veronica a milkshake.”
