“You’re the one that’s going to show me around?” The new kid at school quirked his eyebrow at the girl standing in front of him.
“That’s me! I’m y/n l/n. Nice to meet you, Sweet Pea!” The girl beamed up at the Serpent.
Already Sweets wasn’t liking the change of scenery. This girl was too bubbly for him, and everything was too posh and perfect. It disgusted him, but he still found it somehow amusing.
“Where do you want to go first? I didn’t really plan a grand tour,” Y/n said as she rocked back and forth on her heels.
Sweet Pea shrugged with his hands jammed into the pockets of his jacket.
“You don’t talk much, do you?” Y/n said bopping Sweets’ nose with the tip of her finger.
Sweets’ face scrunched up then looked at y/n with annoyance, “There wasn’t any need for that.”
Y/n put her hands behind her back and started to make her way to the school field, “You need to loosen up, Sweet Pea.”
The new kid at school scoffed and shook his head, but followed after y/n. Once they made it to the field y/n was instantly greeted by all of her friends that were walking by.
“Hey there, y/n!” Ethel waved.
Y/n flashed a bright and perfect smile at Ethel, “Hiya Ethel! You doing okay?”
“I’m great, thanks for asking,” She giggled.
“That’s good to hear! Have a good day, yeah?” Y/n grinned as she walked by the short-haired ginger.
Sweet Pea took this time to notice that not everyone seemed to adore y/n. Don’t get him wrong, he thought y/n was a cool girl (even if at some times her positivity was a little too much for him) but there were a few students that lurked in the shadows of Riverdale High that glared at y/n. Sweets was getting a few glares himself. When the school was asked to escort a new student around the school, nearly everyone volunteered, but no one wanted to volunteer anymore after they had found out that the new student was a Southside Serpent. No one but y/n.
“Why isn’t a doll like you on the cheerleading squad?” Sweet Pea asked nodding towards the girls sporting blue and gold skirts.
“The River Vixens?” Y/n blushed, “No, I couldn’t! I-I’m just y/n l/n. The girl who’s showing you around.”
Sweet Pea felt a smirk tug on his lips, “Y/n l/n, the girl who’s showing me around.”
He started to walk closer to y/n - getting almost a little too close every time.
“Y/n l/n, the girl who’s friends with the majority of Riverdale High.Y/n l/n, the most charming girl I’ve ever met, isn’t a ‘River Vixen’?”
Y/n could feel her cheeks turn a dark red, “No, Sweet Pea, I’m not a River Vixen. I thought about it, but Cheryll wouldn’t dare even let me try out. Besides, I wouldn’t even fit as a River Vixen. Me in a skimpy skirt? I don’t think so.”
“Aw c’mon princess, you’re not saying that you’d look gorgeous in blue and gold? A girl like you could make a guy go weak in the knees,” Sweet Pea complimented.
“Why does it even matter? I’m supposed to be showing you around school!” Y/n said, trying to change the topic otherwise her whole face would become permanently red.
Sweet Pea chuckled at house adorable this Northsider was. He found her annoying at first, but now he found her highly amusing.
After a while, y/n finally got around to the very last part of the school that Sweet Pea hasn’t seen yet - the Library.
“So this is the library?” Sweet Pea said, “How incredibly boring.”
“What? Are library’s not your idea of fun?” Y/n asked tilting her head to the side.
Sweet Pea looked down at y/n, his aura changing so suddenly. “Hmm, princess…you have no idea what ‘fun’ is.”
“Oh yeah? What’s your idea of fun then?”
“Would you really like to know? An innocent little-goody-two-shoes princess like you would get some bad reputation if your friends saw you hanging out with a Southsider.”
“So what? You’re a friend now…aren’t you?” Y/n asked.
Sweet Pea had a sly smile playing on his lips, “The very best friend.”
He then held y/n’s hand and brought it up to his lips to kiss her knuckles, “Let’s have some fun, shall we?”
