Yours Truly III [j.j.]
a lil birthday post now that I finally replaced my phone based on “Adored by Him” by dodie. also, I think this will be the last part.
Don’t you just hate it when your crush likes someone who’s prettier, smarter, and all around better than you? Yeah, me too.
I know you guys are both taking that advanced class. I know because you were so nervous when you signed up, convinced that you weren’t going to get in.
Of course you got in. You became even more excited when the teacher called me into her office, claiming that she needed me to be in her “prestigious program”. I declined. You were upset with my choice and spent the rest of the semester trying to take it.
If I had know that this class would take up so much of your time, I might’ve changed my mind…OK I wouldn’t have, but I don’t know anymore. Now, I see you together nearly all the time. I think what sucks the most is that all of my friends know that I like you. And they think you like me too.
But why would you? You spend a lot more time with Betty, you talk so much, work so well together. I see the way she looks at you. The way she acts. She’s just as far gone as I am. They told me she liked you and my heart broke. They told me to tell you how I feel, before she could do the same.
But I haven’t done that. I’ve stepped back and I’d rather wait for her to confess to you. Everyone’s surprised, thinking that I would’ve already said something, whether it be to you or about her.
But I won’t talk about her. My friends thought that I’d dislike her but why would I? She’s an amazingly talented, sweet, intelligent girl who deserves nothing but good things in her life.
You are a good thing.
I gave up on those cheesy pick-up line notes after a week. What’s the point? I’m a mess and honestly, she’s so much better for you than I am. I don’t care that our friends say we’re perfect for each other. The truth is that we’re not.
I’m bitchy and mean and way too self absorbed for my own good. So I guess this is just me letting it all out.
I hope you like her, I truly do but I don’t wanna know. You’re good for each other. Healthy. The perfect couple.
And so my confession will go unspoken.
You looked up at the clock on the wall of the diner, glancing at Jughead as you began packing you things.
“Leaving already?” He asked.
You nodded as you stood up. “Yep. Gotta help out with chores. See you later.”
Jughead barely acknowledged your departure, lazily waving as you walked out the door. His eyes focused on a small black object that was next to your seat, gasping a bit when he realized it was your journal.
“(Y/N/N) wait! You left your…” Jughead trailed off as he realized you were long gone, and smiled when a small Polaroid picture slipped out from the journal.
It was the two of you at Archie’s birthday party a while back. You had been leaning on his shoulder, laughing at some lame joke, while he had his arm around you, looking down fondly at you.
Jughead found himself smiling fondly as he looked at the picture before opening your journal to put the picture back. He froze as he read the top of the page. ‘Dear Jughead’ was messing scrawled on it and even though he knew better, he began to read.
A few minutes later, Betty slid into the booth across from him, wide smile and a blush placed across her face. Her smile faltered as she saw Jughead’s face twisted up in disbelief.
“Juggie, are you okay?” she asked.
Jughead shook his head slowly, still reeling from what he had just read in your journal. “Do you know where (Y/N) is right now?”
Betty’s eyes widened. “She should be at home right now but-”
“I gotta go, I’ll see you tomorrow Betts,” Jughead said as he rushed out of the diner.
He had finally seen what was inside your journal, and he was completely speechless.
