Hi I don't know if you saw that picture of Cole and Kj at the construction site but I was wondering if you could write a fic where maybe Archie's dad bailed jughead out so to pay him back he is working for him and Betty went to the site to bring jughead lunch but they still haven't talked about the kiss plus maybe Betty is starting at jughead because he's not wearing his usual layers.
Ooohhh I love it.
Juggling a handful of brown paper bags, Betty nearly tripped over a fallen power tool. She only had so many hands, and the amount of hungry men working on the site required quite a heavy bit of food.
She had been on her way out of pops when Fred Andrews came barreling in, looking frazzled and all kinds of stressed, he spotted her almost instantly and she was taken back by the way he ran towards her , with the most relieved smile she had ever seen.
“Betty!” He shouted a little too close to her face
“Hi Mr.Andrews! Where’s the fire?” She giggled. He eyed her outfit looking nervous
“You’re not on your way back to work are you?” He said desperately.
Betty had gotten a summer job at the florists and her uniform consisted of tiny denim shorts, a flowy white top and an apron with “riverdale flowers” printed across the front.
“I’ve still got 30 minutes left of my lunch break, I was just gonna head back early! Is everything okay?”
He dug in his pockets quickly pulling out a hundred dollar bill and handing it to her
“The men on my construction site have been complaining for hours that I didn’t get them lunch, I can’t take it anymore, I’ve got to head back to over see the rest of the planning and I was hoping you would be able to place the order and possibly bring it to the site. Don’t forget, I changed your diapers when Your parents were away!” He looked so desperate, Betty didn’t have the heart to say no.
“Sure! It’s no problem, I have to walk past the site to get back to work anyway! What should o get?”
Fred had grabbed her up, squeezing her in only the way dads can, he was halfway out the door as he answered
“Burgers! As many burgers as you can!”
Giggling she went over to place the order, rolling her eyes at the older mans antics.
So that’s what brought her here, narrowly dodging large pieces of wood while she juggled bags full of burgers.
“Betty!” She heard the familiar voice of her next door neighbor
She turned around smiling, he looked good but for some reason the sight of a shirtless Archie didn’t have the same affect it used to. She figured that was because her brain was on another familiar boy with the softest lips she’d ever seen.
“Archie” she smiled and tried not to blush as he scanned her long legs peeking out of her shorts covered slightly by her apron.
His eyes held a bit of hunger in them and she wiggled slightly uncomfortable
“You just gonna stand there and stare pal? Why don’t you help her out, her hands are obviously full.” She whipped around to meet the eyes of her very favorite moody boy. It was a probably a mistake because as soon as she did
He was standing there, his beautiful muscular arms exposed in the simple tank top he had on, spread tight across his chest. His skin was tan and sweaty and the construction hat he had on showed off just enough of his gorgeous black waves. He was holding a shovel so naturally. those hands she had felt weaved in her hair just a few weeks ago, clutching the metal tool. she had never wished for a camera more in her life.
Little did she know Jughead was admiring betty with equal enthusiasm. It had been two weeks since their first kiss and because of their jobs they hadn’t seen each other a lot. That didn’t stop his eyes from being drawn to the plump pink lips that seemed almost too good to be real. Lowering his eyes to her long tan legs he couldn’t believe she was always hiding those in jeans, her hair was up in a loose ponytail, whispers of honey blonde falling into her eyes a pretty white flower matching her top weaved through the elastic band. She sure was a sight for sore eyes.
“Sorry my dad saddled you with lunch duty Betty.” Archie’s voice broke them out of their staring contest as he took the bags from the blondes hands. She giggled that gorgeous sound and fluttered her long eyelashes
“It’s no problem, i better get going though, I’ve only got ten minutes of my lunch left!” Archie thanked her again
“I’ll walk you, it’s my break time anyway” Jughead said throwing the shovel to the ground, giving Betty a perfect view of his flexing muscles.
He led her out of the construction site, helping her navigate the mess. As soon as they hit the street his hand went to grab hers, taking her by surprise. He didn’t say anything just kept walking. Betty decided it was gonna be up to her to break the silence.
“Hows working with mr.andrews?”
Jughead actually smiled
“It’s not so bad, i kinda like the work. It keeps me busy and it’s been helping me stay in shape, ya know eventually those burgers are gonna catch up to me.” He winked, squeezing her fingers
She smiled dreamily “it looks good on you”
He looked down at her “oh yeah?”
“Most definitely. I like a hardworking man.” She teased softly, wiggling her eyebrows.
“Well then ms.cooper, then I am the man for you.”
She laughed, the conversation falling silent again.
Suddenly Jughead was clearing his throat, breaking into the quiet.
“So am I?”
She looked up at him confused
“Are you what?”
He took a deep breathe, stepping in front of her and halting their steps
“Am I the man for you?” He practically whispered, his hand moving to rub the back of his neck nervously.
Betty smiled so softly he didn’t know what to think, then her hands were around his neck and her mouth was on his, taking in that amazingly familiar feeling of her lips on his he sighed into the kiss, he would never get tired of this.
She pulled away slightly
“Oh yeah Juggie, you are definitely the man for me.”
He laughed pulling her back into himself, dropping his lips to hers with an audible
