Warnings: Reggie and Reader cuteness overload.
Moving was hard, moving away from all your friends and everything you’ve even known and starting from scratch was harder. Your mother Hermione always talked fondly about her time at Riverdale. She and your father grew up there and since your mother had some property there, you were now moving from the radiant awake city that was New York.
What made it easier was your sister Veronica, she was the more stylish one, and you were only a few months apart. She was your partner in crime, you don’t think you could survive without her.
You moved into Riverdale in the middle of the downpour. The chaos of a murderer on the loose and the beloved quarterback Jason Blossom life came to sad end.
Veronica made friends with a sweet girl named Betty in the summer and Betty introduced you to her friends. Kevin had no filter which you loved, Archie was complicated (but he was good at music and hoped to join the football team when school started a bit of a cliché). Jughead Jones the Third he claimed, was a bit of a mystery, but a great writer.
One day you were all hanging out in the park, when you saw him alone with his dog.
“Who’s that?” you interrupted the conversation and pointed at the tall figure with luscious black hair.
“That’s Reggie Mantle” Kevin answered.
“Reggie” you cheered and Veronica gave you a smirk.
“He’s kind of a player (Y/N)” Betty chimed in.
“So is Veronica, that doesn’t mean I can hate and judge my sister” you chuckled as she gave you a nudge in the shoulder as the group laughed.
“He’s also a bully” Jughead spoke while typing away on his laptop.
“Sorry that he bullies you, but bullies do have a reason for bullying even if it’s not the best argument, they have a reason” you reasoned.
“Why’d you think he bullies me?” Jughead retorted as he lifted his eyebrow.
“Oh, just a hunch” you replied with a smile on your face “I’ll be back” you shared with them as you stood up from the bench and walked towards Reggie, not wanting to be empty handed you picked up a daisy from the grass.
“Cute dog, does it have a name?” you gestured at Reggie.
“Vader” he answered as you reached your hand out to give him the daisy as he gave you a puzzled look.
“I come in peace” you reassured as you placed the small flower on his right ear.
“My name is (Y/N)” you pointed out as Vader was running after his tail.
“Reggie, you new around here?” he questioned as he fixed the daisy in his ear.
“That obvious, or is it the fact that in small towns everybody knows everybody” you chuckled.
“Well that, and you’re talking to me” he implied with a small smile.
“Well, I don’t know you and if I listened to what everyone had to say I could miss out on some great things” you claimed with a smile on your face and he chuckled.
You and Reggie actually became great friends. He confided in you on things he’d never say to anyone, you would even go jogging together every morning and you made sure to always have a flower for him, and he always sweetly placed it in his ear. He also promised to leave Jughead alone.
Tomorrow was going to be your first day at Riverdale High. Your mother, Veronica and you occupied the dinner table as Smithers brought you your food.
“So mija” your mother spoke “I heard you have been hanging out with Reggie Mantle a lot” your mother directed at you.
“Yeah, I have, he’s a really great guy” you claimed.
“Rumor has it-” your mother was cut off by you.
“Rumor has it what?! Mom, I cannot stand it when people label people before getting to know them. We are who are, not what people say we are. I am not a corrupt money taker like people claim because of my father’s mistake. Reggie is who he is, he shows a different side to the world and it is a privilege to know the real Reggie. Besides he just lost a friend to a murderer on the loose in your beloved Riverdale mom. I don’t want to hear any more of this.” You ranted and dropped your fork, now at a loss in your appetite because of your mother.
“I’m sorry (Y/N), I- I was out of line, and you are so correct” your mother concluded and Ronnie took your hand in hers.
The school day was about to start and Betty was assigned to show you and Veronica around. Betty pointed you to your first class as you scanned the hallways for Reggie to give him his flower of the day.
“Do you really think he’ll take your flower in front of the whole school and his neanderthals?” Ronnie questioned you as Betty gave you a small smile.
“If he doesn’t, then you were all right. I wasted my time getting to know a great guy who was too scared to show his true self to the world, and I’ll never speak to him again.” You proclaimed.
You left Betty and Veronica and made your way to Reggie who was at his locker with his posse.
“Hey Reg” you spoke up a bit nervous because you were really hoping he wouldn’t turn you down because you enjoyed hanging out with him.
“Hey (Y/N)” Reggie turned away from his posse.
“Hmm, you’re wearing a cap” you gave him a sad smile.
“That’s okay” he answered with a chuckle as he placed the flower on the hole of his snapback.
You couldn’t help but place a huge smile on your face as he showed of his flower of the day for all the school to see.
Later you were home alone your mom was working at Pops and Veronica was trying out for the River Vixens with Betty, since Smithers had just stepped and you jumped when you heard the doorbell ring.
A bit scared since you were binge watching Criminal Minds and there was a murderer on the lose you grabbed a bat and opened the door.
“Whoa! (Y/N) you can but the bat down it’s just me” Reggie removed the bat from your hands and dropped it as you let him in.
“What you got there?” you cheered at the bouquet of flowers Reggie had in his hands.
“Um” Reggie scratched his head as he still had his flower of the day on his forehead clinging from the snapback “I- I was hoping you would accompany me to the homecoming dance this Friday” he confessed as you took the bouquet.
“Oh my god” you gasped at the bouquet.
“Yeah um it has every single flower you have given me” he concluded as you pulled him into a hug.
As soon as he let go you planted a kiss on his soft lips and mentally thanked the universe for letting him into your life no matter what anyone said.
“So that’s a yes” Reggie cheered as you both let go.
“For you, a thousand times over (This is a quote from The Kite Runner)” you smiled.
