Jughead Jones tried his damnedest to show his best friend how much he actually liked her, but to no avail. Everyone saw just how much he truly liked her, except the one person that mattered the most, Y/N.
“You look good.” Jughead told Y/N as they were walking down the street. The duo were meeting Archie and the gang at Pop’s for dinner.
“Thanks Jug.” Y/N blushed. Her crush on Jughead grew exponentially everyday.
“So, Kev. How is Moose?” Y/N asked wiggling her eyebrows at her friend.
“Well the closet got a little tight, so I made my escape.” He smiled taking a sip of his milkshake.
The group all let out a laugh as Jughead excused himself to go to the bathroom.
“So,” Veronica’s eyes locked with Y/N’s, “How long have you and Jughead been together?”
Y/N choked on her drink, nearly spitting it out, “What? N-no, Jug..I…We’re. No we aren’t together.”
“You’ve got to be kidding me. The way that boy stares at you, it is clear that he is head over heels for you.” She looked to Betty and Kevin for support. Both of them nodded.
“Are you serious?” Y/N glanced back towards Jughead who was making his way back to the table.
“Dead.” Veronica nodded.
The walk back to Y/N’s house was silent. Veronica’s words played on an endless loop in her head. As they reached the steps of her house she finally broke the silence, “Hey Jug?”
Letting out a breath she didn’t realize she was holding, Y/N continued, “Do you love me?”
Jughead’s head snapped up at her words, but then he looked away, a blush rose to his cheeks, “Why would you ask that?”
“Because apparently it’s obvious and I am the only one in all of Riverdale who is oblivious.” She searched his eyes for a sign.
“Who told you?” He stared at her.
“So it’s true?” Y/N questioned. He nodded.
Before another word was shared between them, Y/N closed the gap between them, capturing his lips with hers. As the pulled a part, Jughead’s eyes grew wide.
Y/N smiled, “Thank God. I thought I was going to be single for the rest of my life.”
Jug laughed, “We’re only sophomores.”
“Yeah, but I wanted you, and I thought you liked Betty. Thank God that’s not true.”
