Piggybacking off of the last request about the Audrey Hepburn quote, could you possibly Write about this one? "Don't forget to smile, you're the prettiest when you do." I don't know who wrote it or if that's correct but I love it and could imagine Jughead using it to help Betty feel better after being teased by Cheryl or something like that. I love a good fluff piece. Love your writing and you!

Aww that’s beautiful! You got it!

Stupid Cheryl blossom and her stupid, perfect body, and perfect hair, and perfect face. Betty mumbled under her breath, slamming her gym locker shut and putting her flats back on her feet.

Of all days for Cheryl to be on a rampage, she had to choose today. Picking at everything Betty did, criticizing every aspect of Betty’s body and face. Normally she wouldn’t let it get to her, but today

It was her birthday.

She didn’t mind that no one remembered, it’s not like she mentioned it. Her birthday was always a touchy subject for her. On this day two years ago, Polly had been taken away, never to be seen again.

So yeah, she didn’t really talk about her birthday, but that didn’t mean she wanted to be treated like trash on it.

The day hadn’t started off great, her dad had gone away on business last night, which just left Betty and her mother alone in the house. Alice woke her up to tell her she overslept and was going to be late for school, the only reason she knew her mother remembered her birthday was the quick “happy birthday” she threw her before walking out the door.

Veronica didn’t know it was her birthday, Betty had never told her, so obviously she couldn’t count on that, and Archie well, he just forgot. It wasn’t his fault. He had a lot on his mind.

She knew she had to look nasty, her face a permanent frown, cut her some slack, if she wanted to be miserable she was gonna be miserable.

It was her birthday after all.

Walking through the halls, Betty ran her hand across the cold metal lockers, suddenly she spotted the familiar beanie of Jughead jones.

She smiled slightly, but even his presence couldn’t keep a smile on her face.

“Hey juggie.”

“Hey green eyes, what’s with the frown.”

She sighed leaning against the locker next to his.

“Just Cheryl being Cheryl, apparently my legs aren’t straight enough and my face isn’t pretty enough.”

He snorted ,drawing her attention to his,

“Yeah, you not being pretty enough, makes total sense.”

She smiled, smacking his shoulder

“Thanks juggie.”

“So Cheryl’s the reason for your grumpy mood?”

She nodded

“You sure it has nothing to do with today being your birthday?”

Her eyes snapped open, connecting with his.

“You remembered?”

He smiled at her, digging in his pockets before pulling out a folded up book with a little ribbon on it

“Happy birthday bets.”

Her eyes watered as she took the present from his hands.

It was an original, Holmes and Watson.

She instantly had her arms wrapped around him.

“Thank you juggie, you didn’t have to.”

He rested his hands on her hips, pulling away slightly.

“I like to see you smile.”

She beamed at him

“You always look the prettiest when you smile.”

Laughing, she pulled the book into her hands instantly digging into it. Smiling brighter than she had all day.

Together

Barry sat on their couch just sitting there, barely moving, he was thinking to himself, in a long deep trance, he put himself in. Iris walked in, and yelled she’s home, but he did not answer.

She walked towards him, and stood in front of him. “Baby, are you okay?”

He jumped slightly then smiled. “ Yeah, yeah, just thinking about the future” he smiled, and hugged her, as he pulled her to him.

“Okay” she said, as she kissed him. He cut the TV on and kid flash appeared on the news saving the day…. Again.

He sighed, as he flipped the channel to an old one that Barry and iris used to watch. Iris had a long flash back of when they watched it, together.

Barry was eating popcorn when iris came back home from cheer. “ HI iris !” he yelled.

She smiled, and sat her stuff down and looked at the TV. “another episode of zombie attacks? Gosh” she said. It was late at night, and joe was at work, news called that a thunder storm should be coming over the area. Barry was on episode 54.

She had changed, and came back down to realize he was in the 55 episode, already.

“So, wanna watch it together?” iris asked, as she moved her hands to jester that she needed space on the couch.

“Of course” he said. She sat really close to him, actually she was leaning against him, and he had her in his arms, similar to how they were on movie might, with Jesse and Wally in the future.

Then the power went out, and they heard lighting, and thunder. “ Ahh” iris screamed, grabbing barry, for a spare moment she was afraid, and allowing him to protect her, for once.

“Iris, its just a storm”

“The lighting is so loud, and the lights are out, I cant see” she complained.

He tried to get up when she stopped him. “Can we just sleep here together for tonight? Please?” she begged, and of course he would say yes to the love of his life asking to be in his arms. So they cuddled up and went to sleep.

About 2 hours later joe came home, and the power was on. When we walked in he was about to call for his kids, when he saw the two teens sleeping on the couch. They did not know it, but they was basically smashed together, iris and Barry were facing forward, and he had his arm wrapped around her so tight, and she was as far back into him as he could be. Joe was shocked, he was confused, and shocked.

“Since when did they start dating?” he asked himself. Little did he know they weren’t dating… yet.

The next day, Joe had already set up camera around the house, and was watching them from his room. “ there is no way they can lie to me”

Iris looked up and saw barry as they smiled, and stayed there for a moment. That was when she felt butterflies.

“Morning barry” she said, as she leaned in closer to him.

“Morning iris” he smiled, and held her tighter.

They both slowly sat up, and smiled. “ we did not finish the episode” she said.

“ I know” Barry said. “Need a hug?” he pretended to act sad.

“Yep” she leaned in and they hugged, then he tickled her.

“Barry!” she yelled. The two was holding hands and trying to get control, then she pushed Barry down and had her legs on either side, and sat on top of him. Joe opened his mouth and grabbed his cloth to wipe his head.

They keep their hands up then he tickled her most ticklish spot, and got on top of her, he relaxed as they sat like that with him on tope of her, as they found a way to be comfortable.

“I win” he said.

“ Nope!” she reached her hands under his shirt, and tickled his arms, he lost balance and the two fell of the couch, and they tried to gain control of his shirt. Joe could not take it anymore, and started to head downstairs.

“Oh no!” iris had accidentally took Barry’s shirt off, but was surprised when she saw a six pack.

“Holy shit” she said, then covering her mouth.

“ Oh shit, here comes joe!” he was afraid that Joe would think something werid happened, so he ran to the bathroom, while iris ran in their with him.

“Why did you go with me?” he asked.

“I don’t know! It’s a girl thing, travel together, sometimes” she said. He sighed, then they moved closer, when they saw the shadow of Joes feet, Barry still had no shirt on.

“ I  need to use the bathroom”

“Coming” they both said.

“Open the door, or I will” joe said.

Barry rushed and had a hard time putting his shirt back on, by the time he was slowly moving it down. Joe had barged in and saw him pull it further down, while iris brushed her pants for no reason. The two teens turned red and ran to the couch.

“What was you doing in the bathroom together?”

“Um, we… were doing nothing” Barry said.

“Yeah, nothing” iris repeated. Joe gave them the look and walked closer.

“I said, what were do young in the bathroom, and why was barry pulling his shirt down?”

Barry turned red, and his eyes went large. “ I, we, I-i. don’t, please. I”

“Are you guys dating” Joe asked. The two teens looked at each other, and smiled.

“No” they both said. Joe looked at them again. “ You sure”

“Yeah, just best , best, best friends”

He walked away and decided to let it pass.

Iris felt butterflies, the entire time. She felt so—

“ Iris !” Barry yelled again. He was kissing her neck. And then she jumped up again.

“Oh my god” she was scared, because he was on her neck, and she was in her zone, and was nervous, she was breathing heavy. And then he started to hold her.

“What’s wrong?” he asked, Concern in his eyes.

“I um. Was thinking back to the last time we watched Zombie attacks, and that’s when I thought I had um, feelings for you…” Barry smiled and kissed her.

“Its replaying episode 55, we should watch It”

“Yeah, we should, together.”

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
