About 6 or 7 years ago, I was trying to enlist into the military. I ended up not joining but that’s a story for another time. At this point, I was led to believe I was about 4 months away from leaving for Boot camp. I was running out of savings, and needing a part time job for some spending cash while I waited around.
So I did what any enterprising 20something would do, and searched craigslist for jobs. I normally hate sales jobs, especially those based on commissions, but figured it would be a great way to earn some extra cash short term. Found a few job listings that looked promising, and put out some applications. A few days later I received a call from David. He was opening up a new store and needed associates. He liked my resume and asked if I’d be available for an interview on Friday morning. I was very up front with him, and let him know that the distance was a bit more than I’d normally drive for a retail job, and asked what he was offering for an hourly rate, to see if it was worth the drive. He told me that they were planning on offering an hourly rate in the mid teens, along with commission. Seemed like an ok deal, so I agreed to be there Friday at 8am.

The heels of my boots clicked against the floor as I walked
down the school hallway. I scanned
everyone’s faces, searching for my boyfriend.
An arm grabbed me and pulled me into an empty classroom. I looked up and saw my boyfriend.
“Jug!” I giggled as he wrapped his arms around my
waist. “You know I have to get to French
class in a few minutes.”
“I know,” he smirked, “which means we have a few minutes.” I laughed and wrapped my arms around his
“The bell’s gonna ring any second,” I whispered, my face
inching closer to his. Jughead’s smirk
faded into a smile as he leaned in.
“Better make every second count then,” he replied. Our lips were millimeters apart when the bell
rang, causing me to jump out of his arms.
When I saw him pouting, I winked before exiting the room.
“Au revoir, Jughead,” I called over my shoulder. He rolled his eyes, but there was a smile etched
on his face.
Later that day, I was sitting with Betty and Veronica at
“So you’re still coming to Pop’s tonight, right (Y/N)?”
Betty asked. I smiled and nodded.
“Of course!” I replied.
“And will Jughead be joining us tonight?” Veronica asked,
her lips curving upwards in a smirk. I
rolled my eyes but nodded.
“Yes he is,” I responded.
Betty and Veronica shared a smirk, causing me to shake my head. “Oh my god, guys, I know what you’re
“Yeah, yeah,” Veronica waved her hand, dismissing me. “I know what you’re gonna say. You and Jughead have been BFFs since day one
and blah blah blah ruin friendship and so on so forth.” She shook her head. “Whatever.
You know what we have to say, and it’s your choice.” I laughed to myself, amused by Veronica and
Betty’s lack of knowledge about mine and Jughead’s relationship. For a second, I considered telling them the
truth. Instead, I just smiled and
Jughead was the first person to arrive at Pop’s that
evening. Once I arrived, he perked up
and waved me over to the booth. When I
sat down, he pecked me on the lips. I
playfully pushed him away.
“Our friends are going to be here any second,” I scolded him
with a smile. He laughed and rolled his
“We have to tell them eventually,” he reminded me, and I
“I know.” The jingle
of the bell signaled someone new entered Pop’s, and we turned around to see
Veronica walk in. I waved at her and she
quickly caught sight of us, striding over to our booth. She slid into the seat across from us.
“Hey lovebirds,” she greeted with a smirk. I smiled back at her, unbothered.
“Hey, V,” I said.
Kevin, Betty, and Archie arrived soon after, and we ordered our food and
fell into a playful conversation.
Occasionally, Jughead would steal some fries from my basket. In retaliation, I would take his onion rings. Our other four friends noticed these playful
exchanges. At first they said nothing,
but when Jughead and I started to lightly shove each other, Kevin stopped us.
“Oh my god, just date already!” he shouted, slamming his
fists on the table. Jughead and I shared
a glance, then burst out into laughter.
“What?” Archie questioned, all four of our friends looking
back and forth between me and Jughead. I
bit my lip and smiled up at Jughead, ignoring our friends surrounding us.
“Oh my god,” Betty muttered, her eyes widening. “You guys are…” She couldn’t finish her sentence, her train
of thought lost in shock. Veronica and
“Are what?” Archie asked, still not getting it. Veronica rolled her eyes.
“Dating, Archiekins,” she explained. “(Y/N) and Jughead are dating.” His eyes widened.
“You guys are dating?” he gasped. “Since when?”
I shrugged, not making eye contact with any of them.
“About a month?” I said, looking at Jughead for
confirmation. He nodded.
“Sounds about right.”
“And you didn’t tell us?” Kevin demanded. I bit my lip guiltily and shrugged.
“We were waiting for a good time to tell you guys,” I
explained, but it came out more like a question. The whole table groaned at us, but everyone
