The heels of my boots clicked against the floor as I walked down the school hallway. I scanned everyone’s faces, searching for my boyfriend. An arm grabbed me and pulled me into an empty classroom. I looked up and saw my boyfriend.
“Jug!” I giggled as he wrapped his arms around my waist. “You know I have to get to French class in a few minutes.”
“I know,” he smirked, “which means we have a few minutes.” I laughed and wrapped my arms around his neck.
“The bell’s gonna ring any second,” I whispered, my face inching closer to his. Jughead’s smirk faded into a smile as he leaned in.
“Better make every second count then,” he replied. Our lips were millimeters apart when the bell rang, causing me to jump out of his arms. When I saw him pouting, I winked before exiting the room.
“Au revoir, Jughead,” I called over my shoulder. He rolled his eyes, but there was a smile etched on his face.
Later that day, I was sitting with Betty and Veronica at lunch.
“So you’re still coming to Pop’s tonight, right (Y/N)?” Betty asked. I smiled and nodded.
“Of course!” I replied.
“And will Jughead be joining us tonight?” Veronica asked, her lips curving upwards in a smirk. I rolled my eyes but nodded.
“Yes he is,” I responded. Betty and Veronica shared a smirk, causing me to shake my head. “Oh my god, guys, I know what you’re thinking.”
“Yeah, yeah,” Veronica waved her hand, dismissing me. “I know what you’re gonna say. You and Jughead have been BFFs since day one and blah blah blah ruin friendship and so on so forth.” She shook her head. “Whatever. You know what we have to say, and it’s your choice.” I laughed to myself, amused by Veronica and Betty’s lack of knowledge about mine and Jughead’s relationship. For a second, I considered telling them the truth. Instead, I just smiled and shrugged nonchalantly.
Jughead was the first person to arrive at Pop’s that evening. Once I arrived, he perked up and waved me over to the booth. When I sat down, he pecked me on the lips. I playfully pushed him away.
“Our friends are going to be here any second,” I scolded him with a smile. He laughed and rolled his eyes.
“We have to tell them eventually,” he reminded me, and I nodded.
“I know.” The jingle of the bell signaled someone new entered Pop’s, and we turned around to see Veronica walk in. I waved at her and she quickly caught sight of us, striding over to our booth. She slid into the seat across from us.
“Hey lovebirds,” she greeted with a smirk. I smiled back at her, unbothered.
“Hey, V,” I said. Kevin, Betty, and Archie arrived soon after, and we ordered our food and fell into a playful conversation. Occasionally, Jughead would steal some fries from my basket. In retaliation, I would take his onion rings. Our other four friends noticed these playful exchanges. At first they said nothing, but when Jughead and I started to lightly shove each other, Kevin stopped us.
“Oh my god, just date already!” he shouted, slamming his fists on the table. Jughead and I shared a glance, then burst out into laughter.
“What?” Archie questioned, all four of our friends looking back and forth between me and Jughead. I bit my lip and smiled up at Jughead, ignoring our friends surrounding us.
“Oh my god,” Betty muttered, her eyes widening. “You guys are…” She couldn’t finish her sentence, her train of thought lost in shock. Veronica and Kevin gasped.
“Are what?” Archie asked, still not getting it. Veronica rolled her eyes.
“Dating, Archiekins,” she explained. “(Y/N) and Jughead are dating.” His eyes widened.
“You guys are dating?” he gasped. “Since when?” I shrugged, not making eye contact with any of them.
“About a month?” I said, looking at Jughead for confirmation. He nodded.
“Sounds about right.”
“And you didn’t tell us?” Kevin demanded. I bit my lip guiltily and shrugged.
“We were waiting for a good time to tell you guys,” I explained, but it came out more like a question. The whole table groaned at us, but everyone wore smiles.
“Well,” smiled Betty, “it’s about time.”
