Pairing: Jughead x Reader
“You’re really telling me they aren’t dating?” Veronica asked, her voice hushed but surprised as her eyes focused on the pair in front of her. Betty laughed, amused by her new friends surprise.
“Yup.” She smiled, also looking over at the pair. Archie blinked, confused of what they were talking about, and snapping out of his musings, he turned around staring in the same direction as the ladies before him. Smiling knowingly when he saw who the two were looking at.
“Jughead and Y/N?” Archie grinned, turning back to Betty and Veronica.
“Yeah, but she’d totally right. They’re like endgame.” Kevin agreed.
Veronica laughed at Kevin, before letting her head rest in her palm. “How long have they been friends?”
“For as long as we can remember. Even before Archie and I were friends. Even before Archie and Jughead were friends.” Betty explained, turning back around so she didn’t get caught staring at two of her best friends.
“I think we should set them up!” Veronica proposed, clapping her hands together excitedly. Betty smiled, suddenly excited by the idea and Kevin immediately agreed. All three of them turned towards Archie, expectedly as they waited for his answer. He remained silent.
“I don’t want to meddle in their affairs….” He mumbled.
“Oh Archiekins, we will be helping them! Has Jughead ever said anything about liking Y/N?”
“Not exactly, but he does always talk about her.” Archie thought back, nodding faintly.
“And Y/N is always gushing about ‘Juggie’.” Betty threw in.
“Then it’s settled. We will make a plan and set them together.”
You could feel eyes on you the minute you walked into Pop’s diner. Though you brushed it aside and the deep feeling that something was going to happen, bad or good, and walked over to her regular table with Jughead. Jughead immediately closed his laptop upon seeing you and smiled up at you.
You waved in greeting, sliding in the seat beside him as you huddled next to him. You noticed he already had your favourite drink, a strawberry smoothie ordered and in front of you, you smiled. “You didn’t have to Juggie.” You bumped his shoulder, already knowing about his living conditions and how money was sparse with him.
Jughead often spent nights at your house. Your mom was never home and you didn’t have a dad, so often you were by yourself. Jughead stayed to keep you company and you didn’t have to worry about whether he was safe or not.
“I wanted to.” He shrugged and you smiled, resting your head on his shoulder. He let a small smile slip and letting your eyes wander, you saw your best friends and the new girl setting in a booth a few seats away from you.
“Happy good times are here as well.” You laughed, teasing your group of friends secretly. Jughead leaned over, catching sight of them as well, seeing them staring at you and you rolled your eyes as he laughed.
“When are we gonna tell them about use dating?” You asked, staring up at Jughead. He smiled, shrugging his shoulders.
“Don’t know. Why?” He asked.
“I just feel like their up to something.” You shrugged, little did you know how right you were.
All week was awkward. Well just strange. Your friends had spent the entire week trying to throw you and Jughead together in awkward, intimate moments. You’d known you were right last weekend when you though they were up to something, only you didn’t think they’d go to such depths to try and put you together.
You and Jughead had chosen to keep your relationship a secret seeing as you both were quite introverted. But, you’d always wanted to tell them, just the two of you never really got around to it. But now, you and Jughead had both agreed that this whole trying to set you up thing was becoming tiresome.
So, one night at Pop’s before they all could run off you and Jughead had cornered them, demanding answers. “So, besties, what’s happening?” You asked, a wide grin on your face as you sat next to Jughead. You were practically on his lip, his arm arounds your waist and him leaning behind you.
Archie, Betty and Veronica sat squished in front of you, grins on their faces at your guys positions but a guilt look plastered on their faces. “We don’t know what you mean.” Betty shrugged, trying to play it off cool.
Veronica shrugged as well. You laughed. “Okay, ninjas we know you’re up to something. What are you trying to do?” Jughead asked, a bored look on his face. You elbowed him, telling him to take more fun of the situation.
“They wanted to!” Archie suddenly said, Veronica and Betty looked over and glared at him before V sighed.
“Listen, we just thought you two would make a cute couple so we’ve been trying to set you two up. We, I, don’t know why you aren’t together already, but whatever.” Veronica explained.
You suddenly started laughing, and Jughead rolled his eyes, leaning up to rest his head on your shoulder. “That’s sweet guys,” you smiled sincerely. “but….” You started, turning to Jughead who looked back.
“We’re already together.” Jughead finished for you, and you smiled. Looking back at your friends, you couldn’t help but let out a giggle at their blank faces.
“What!” Betty shrieked, staring confused. Archie had his mouth open and Veronica just smirked, “how long?”
“A year?” You guessed, it was approximately around there.
“And you never told us?” Archie asked, finally closing his mouth.
“We just never really thought it was that important.” Jughead shrugged, taking a bite out of his burger. The three in front of you shared at look at each other as you two fell into your own conversation, smiling at each other.
Even though you hadn’t told them, they couldn’t help but smile in amusement. You and Jughead were just two cute for your own good.
