Synopsis: Your night jog is interrupted by the sudden apperance of a friend…or foe?
Warnings: swearing, eh violence.
A/N: Had this idea for awhile and thought itd be nice and different from Legacy. I quite like this idea and am unsure if there’ll be a part 2 ft. The Gang™. I quite like Sweet Pea this far, don’t we all love an emotional damaged mysterious boy hahaha. Let me know what you loves think. Part.6 of legacy will be up in the next few days once I write it (honestly shocked I’m still writing it, I’m terrible with maintaining series)
“where you going so late sis?”
“Bit late to be jogging around the south side?”
“Well it’s safer than when we lived on the Northside Juggy” you smirked at your beanie wearing brother before pulling your own battered beanie down around your ears to shield them from the bitter winter air. Unlike your brother you only wore your woolen hat at the appropriate times.
You stretched before taking off on your routine jog, if slightly…very later than usual.
You jogged along the footpath parallel to a wooded area near the trailer park. Swirled in your own deep thoughts, the sudden weight thrown into your side completely caught you off guard and you screamed. A hand going around your mouth as the weight pushed you deep into the forrest, worst case scenarios running rampant through your mind.
The body held you against a tree and you forced your tightly squeezed shut eyes open, getting ready to fight.
“OH MY GOD YOU FUCKING JERK!” you pushed Sweet Pea back, hitting him into the back as he was hunched over laughing.
“Oh my god your face!” He got out between laughs, half choking.
“Don’t do that to me! I thought I was being jumped by Ghoulies!”
“Don’t even joke about that, I’d kill them” he got very serious all of a sudden and you smiled. As if he remembered the fright he gave you he returned to laughter as you both strolled back to the path.
“Come on ynn I’ll walk you home, protect you from-”
“-From people who might hmm I don’t know tackle me into the woods?” you interrupted and you both laughed.
“Why are you out this late anyway?”
“At 11.30 at night?”
“Night jogging, it makes me more mysterious and edgy" you played
“Oh yeah you definitely need help with that” he smiled, snatching your beanie from your head and putting it on his own. You don’t even bat an eyelid to his gesture.
“Why are you out this late?”
“At 11.30 at night?”
“Night business, it makes me more mysterious and edgy” he mimicked receiving a shove from you.
“No but seriously ynn what’s with the vampiric running? Something wrong?”
“Missing your precious Northside?”
“Yeah kind of”
“This is why we can’t be together, so hung up on those idiots” he smirked
“I’m pretty sure the fact I don’t like you is the reason we’re not together” he put his hand to his chest in feign hurt, you rolled your eyes at your long time friend before continuing along the short walk home.
“No more nightly jogs alone though yn, seriously it’s dangerous. Especially for FP’ offspring, special cargo for some Ghoulie trying to earn their stripes” you arrived outside the trailer park.
“Aww I’m touched you think I’m precious” you teased.
“Most precious thing in this dump”
“We’ll leave here someday Sweet Pea”
“Well yeah I’m going to need someone to carry my bags” you smirk and he nudges you.
“Can’t leave my partner in crime behind me now can I?” His genuine smile of gratitude made you feel warm. He always did. No one could quite understand him like you.
“I don’t really feel like going back to the trailer right now Sweet Pea, wanna go to the Whyte Wyrm?”
“With you? Always”
After playing, and losing, a few rounds of pool with Sweet Pea you sat at the bar and let him play someone actually challenging for him. You sat cross-legged absent-mindedly scrolling through your phone when a hand went to your thigh causing you to jump.
“Aw-w loo-k it’s FPs sexy daug-hter, h-ey babe” his slur of words matched the stench of decades of whiskey drinking. He was much older and much too close.
“Um hi” you pushed his hand down and away but it returned faster with a squeeze make you tense. He leaned in closer and whispered drunken inappropriate scheme’s into your ear. You groaned in disgust pushing him completely off you.
“Hey princess you don’t get to fucking do that! Come here!” He caught your knee harder, leaning his weight onto you, his arm snaked around your waist and you found it difficult this time to push him from you this time.
A hand laid on his shoulder from behind. He grunted at being interrupted before turning and meeting Sweet Peas fist, knocking him cold to the floor. You gasped as no one else reacted in the bar, welcome to the Whyte Wyrm.
“Oh my god Sweet Pea!”
“Come on, it’s time to go” he caught you by the wrist and began to pull you away from the bar, having to step over the creep as you went.
“Sweet Pea slow down, you’re going to pull my arm out of it’s socket!”
“such a fucking asshole” he continued pulling you in the direction of the trailer park, grumbling about your encounter with the creep.
“I was handling it!”
“Oh yeah yn really looked like that”
“Get off my case for fuck sake!”
“He could have run off with you!”
“So why does it matter to you!? Seriously slow down you’re not racing Usain Bolt for christ sakes!”
“it does matter to me! I don’t want some old creep all over you!” He still storming in front of you, your wrist firmly caught.
“You’re the same when any guy talks to me!!!”
“THAT’S BECAUSE I DON’T WANT ANY GUY TALKING TO YOU LIKE THAT!”
“WHY!? WHY THE FUCK DOES IT MATTER YOU!” and then, under the dim light of the trailer park sign, Sweet Pea stopped his quick pace suddenly, turning and enveloping you in a kiss. He dropped your wrist in exchange for your hips, your hands going around his neck. He had to lean to reach you and your were still half on your tippy toes to reach him but still, you were happy and totally surprised.
“Oh my God you just kissed me” you broke from him.
“I just kissed a Northside sympathiser” you both looked shocked before locking eyes with each other and kissing again hungrily.
“If anyone ever touches you like that again I’ll kill them.”
“Okay” you nodded hurriedly, desperate to connect your lips to his again.
“Well, that doesn’t look much like jogging?” Jughead voice made you both jump and separate. “Yeah, still a great cardiovascular workout…” you smiled at the ground at Sweet Peas reply.
“Whatever, I’m sure our Northsider friends will love this” he laughed, heading off back in the direction of your home.
“Yeah they will have a lot to say about…this” Sweet Pea was barely audible, first time you heard him like this.
“I really don’t care” you put his hands back on your waist and kissed him again.
“It makes me edgy and mysterious"
