so I got inspired to write this so if you haven’t watched the latest episode avoided it bc like…spoilersssss ((also let’s pretend Beronica is real pls)). also sorry xx i’m in a depressing mood whoops.
You flinched as you felt a hand latch onto your arm, dragging you away from Kevin and Joaquin and out into the hallway.
“What’s going on?” You hissed, finally coming to a stop and facing the redheaded boy and the raven haired girl.
“It’s Betty, she…” Veronica quieted down as you all heard the sound of heels clicking on the tile floor. You turned around to see an angry Betty, causing you to step back slightly and hide behind Archie.
“What did you do now Ronnie?” you asked under your breath, being met with nothing but a harsh glare that basically screamed at you to shut up.
“Whatever. She’s your girlfriend,” you muttered, shrinking back when Veronica shot you yet another harsh glare.
“Before you get mad,” Veronica began. “Let me explain.”
“Explain what? That you’re working with my mom behind my back?” Betty asked, exasperated.
“ I’m sorry, B, but you know FP had some kind of arrangement with my dad,” V replied. “I had to make sure it wasn’t about Jason Blossom.”
“And what’s your excuse?” Betty turned to Archie.
“I was looking out for Jughead in case FP was doing shady stuff,” Archie replied honestly.
“To protect him,” Betty said in disbelief.
She turned to you. “What about you (Y/N)? What did you do?”
You shrunk back at her harsh tone, hiding behind Veronica as her eyes softened.
“Blame me, Betty. I asked Archie to help me,” the raven haired girl spoke.
“Help you do what? What did you two do?” you asked, not knowing what was going on.
“Hey guys what’s going on?” Jughead asked as he approached, drawing your attention to the way he was dressed, looking simply perfect in his suit and beanie. “Woah, why do I feel like I’m suddenly left out?”
“Do you want to tell him? Or should I?“ Betty asked impatiently.
Veronica stepped forwards. “We went to your dad’s trailer. To search it.”
“Why would you guys do that?” Jughead asked, playful expression falling off his face.
“My mom put them up to it,” Betty interjected.
Jughead looked around in disbelief, eyes widening as he noticed you. “And (Y/N)? Was she involved in this too? Was she supposed to distract me?”
You shook your head furiously as you stuttered, trying to get your words out. Jughead scoffed.
Veronica approached him. “Do you really think she had anything to do with this? (Y/N)’s in love with you for God’s sake!”
Jughead’s eyes widened and your face flushed red. He started walking towards you before you managed to open your mouth, shutting everyone up. “I don’t like Jughead!”
Jughead slowed, eventually coming to a stop and giving you an unreadable look before shifting his attention to the ground and backing away from you.
“Yes she does!” Veronica protested as you hit her sharply.
“I do not love Jughead Jones!” you shouted exasperatedly, effectively shutting everyone up.
“Betty’s mom was convinced FP was hiding something about Jason,” Veronica said lowly. “We were wrong. All of us.”
“We didn’t find anything,” Archie chimed in. “And Jug, we were only doing it to prove that-”
“That my dad wasn’t a murderer?” Jughead cut him off. “You went behind my back, Archie? How did you- when did you guys know to go to my dad’s trailer?”
“We knew he’d be at dinner with-” Veronica began.
Jughead cut her off with a sigh. He turned to you and Betty. “No. That’s why you invited my dad and I to dinner? So these two could break into my his trailer while she interrogated him?”
You stepped forwards. “No, I didn’t know what they were doing.”
“But yes, that is why mom invited you guys,” Betty whispered.
“To think I was gonna pass on moving to Toledo with my family for you,” he whispered back.
You let out a tear-filled gasp. “What?”
“When we went to my dad’s trailer, you asked me if I believed him. I said I did. Wasn’t that good enough for you?” He asked.
“It was,” you and Betty replied together.
“It was good enough,” Betty continued. You couldn’t speak. “I didn’t… I tried to stop her.”
“You could’ve told me, you could’ve warned me about this,” Jughead yelled.
“You were so excited, Jug, I didn’t want to disappoint you.”
“So instead you lied? You all lied to me?” Jughead asked.
“There they are,” Kevin said, running around the corner, followed by parents.
“Betty. Thank God-” Alice spoke.
“Mom, don’t,” Betty interrupted.
“No, you have to listen,” Kevin said. “All of you. My dad just told Mayor McCoy about your dad, Jughead.”
You turned to Jughead, who opened his mouth to speak. “What about my dad?”
“He was just arrested. For the murder of Jason Blossom.”
You ran after Jughead, ignoring Archie and Betty who were calling out after you. You followed Jughead to his dad’s trailer, having ditched your heels a few blocks down.
You arrived just in time to see Jughead slide down the wall, sobbing into his hands.
You approached carefully, wincing when you stepped on broken glass, and settled down next to Jughead. He leaned his head on your shoulder, still sobbing.
You began running one hand through his hair and intertwining the other one with his.
“They all lied to me (Y/N/N),” he whispered.
“I know,” you said.
You spent a few more minutes in silence before he shot up straight.
“They all lied to me,” he repeated hashly. “FP, Archie, Betty, Veronica. They all lied.”
You held on to his hand, not knowing where he was going with his little speech.
His eyes hardened as he looked at you. “You all lied to me. You all tricked me.”
Your eyes widened as you shook your head. “No Jughead, I never- I didn’t even know what they were doing.”
“Don’t play dumb with me (Y/N),” Jughead spoke. Tears sere streaming down your face.
“You’re a liar,” he spat. “What did you lie about?”
You sat in silence, not answering his question. Fed up with your silence, Jughead scoffed and got up, storming out of the trailer and leaving you in tears.
“I lied when I said I didn’t love you.”
