shows should follow crazy ex girlfriend’s example and not only have a canon bisexual character who actually uses the word bisexual but also have them do an entire song about being unashamedly bisexual in front of a giant bi flag background
it’s only fair
Reggie x Reader: Fingers and thumbs, baby. (Epilogue)
A/N: SIKE BITCHEEEES. Y’ALL REALLY THINK I’D LEAVE IT LIKE THAT!? HELL NAH YOUR MOTHER HAS RETURNED TO PROVIDE LOVE YA XXX
Plot: When Reggie and (Y/N) have been bestfriends their whole lives but the universe had other plans.
Samantha stole another glance at the tall, gorgeous
boy that seemed so keen on listening to everything that was coming out of their
boring professor’s mouth. He was popular and friendly but still somehow
remained a mystery, always kept to himself. Everybody was practically in love
with him because aside from his well-built physique, friendly nature, and
willingness to help those who need it he had this certain aura of vagueness
around him which seemed to drag everyone in, makes them want to unlock more. As
if there is so much more to be discovered aside from the glimpses of
personalities he shows the world but nobody ever had the chance to be that
close. Everybody knew him but at the same time nobody actually did.
When their professor finally ended his
discussion Samantha stood up, ready to take the first step to become the first
person to have the honor of actually knowing Reggie Mantle.
He looked at her before gracing her with a
smile, making her heart beat twice as fast. “Hey, Samantha,” He adjusted his gym bag on his shoulders, probably
preparing himself for his daily training.

a second to gather some courage. “Would

response, afraid to look at his face for any sign of rejection. Then she heard
a sigh and knew it was game over. She
heard the stories, the rumors, how no one stood a chance because:

Reggie seemed to hear it.
Reggie smirked before shaking his head. “You got it all mixed up, Sam.”
Reggie said. “I’m the one who got

her name?” Samantha asked. Curious as to who got this
beautiful boy’s fancy and got him hooked that he couldn’t even look at another
girl ever again. Reggie’s mind immediately went to the memory of your smile, the way you’re hair danced messily in the
wind when you were in the passenger seat of his car, the echo of your laugh in
his room as you wore his shirt while running your hand across his hair, your
beautiful 5 o’clock shadow as you stared outside the windows of Pop’s with the
neon lights making you look ethereal and seraphic.
Samantha noticed that Reggie’s mind seemed
to disappear to a happy place because he beamed, almost shining with happiness.
Another glimpse, she thought, Reggie
was really full of surprises and secrets.
I tell you, I might have to kill you.”
All the boys stared as Cheryl and (Y/N)
walked together, with their arms crossed, talking quietly among themselves. How
the meanest and nicest girls of the entire building managed to become bestfriends was beyond them but they
would be lying if they say they weren’t a sight to behold. Especially (Y/N),
known to be the kindest soul to ever grace their halls, who was always willing
to extend a helping hand and always treat everybody with respect. A lot of boys
tried to win her heart but none was very successful, in fact not qa single one
even came close, because aside from the Red Widow by her side, a nickname she
earned because of her careful yet poisonous words and her dedication to guard
the little angel of New York University everybody gets the same response from
her every time: a kind rejection. The
kind of rejection that makes them feel bad for even trying and putting her
through the dilemma of even rejecting them.
One poor soul gripped the bouquet of roses
in his hands before daring to walk towards their table and try his luck, eyes
on the back of (Y/N)’s head. He gave himself a mental pep talk trying not to
chicken out but all of those words of inspiration and prayers were obliterated
when he caught Cheryl’s eyes.
Cheryl seemed bored and emotionless, head
resting on her palm, as she stared at another clueless boy trying to vouch for
her bestfriend’s affection. She gave him the smallest glare, which usually
meant ‘scram’ or ‘fuck off’, and smirked as she saw him make a 90 degree turn before
walking out straight out the library.

really focusing on her advanced reading, chuckled. “You’ll never get a boyfriend if you keep that up.”
Cheryl scoffed and flipped her long, almost
fiery in this lighting, red hair.
“Nobody deserves me, darling, and we both know it.”
we don’t,” You stared at her. “You should give them a chance.”
rich coming from you, sweetie.” Cheryl shot back making you blush. “Why don’t you give those unfortunate souls who are just begging for a glance from the angel of
their dreams, a chance?”
You blushed even more. “You—I – You know I’m not into that, Cherry.”
yeah, who you tryna fool?” Cheryl smirked, crossing
her arms across her chest and leaning back on her chair. “And please, he was carrying roses, how cliché right? The right man
would know you’re more of a sunflower girl.” She smirked. “Too bad the right man is in a far far away

heat on your face but she just laughed at your effort in looking mad. You just
rolled your eyes, heart beating a little too fast at the memory of him.
just, such a good friend.” Cheryl dramatically fanned her face, as if she was about to cry,
speaking a little too loudly in the library. “That bastard better be fucking grateful and buy me a
Victorian-inspired mansion for all my effort in making sure his lil’ lovebird
doesn’t get snatched by worthless peasants.”

I know him, and that boy is about as gone for you as you are for him,” Cheryl stated confidently. “And

feed yourself any more false hopes. You don’t even know where in God’s green
Earth he was staying at right now. You haven’t talked for almost four years
now. You could but you decided not to because getting a little taste of that heaven will make you want him and

close to your goal. That reunion will have to wait, and it seems like he was

“(Y/N),” Cheryl was staring at something in her phone, eyes wide in shock.
Whatever it was must be something big to actually surprise Cheryl. Cheryl

boy that just won the Nationals in Indiana. “Point six hundred million for Cheryl. God, I hate being right all the

the ground. “Even I still can’t believe
as for me it’s the boring old office work.”
Reggie gave him a look before throwing at him
the football which he caught with a lot of effort. “Shut up, Jake, you got a girlfriend who’s smart. She got you.”
Jake smirked. “Yeah she’s still pretty bummed about not getting that journalism job.
She really wanted it.”
can’t believe someone actually beat Janine. Must be some miracle.” Jake’s girlfriend, Janine, was like a machine when it comes to her
studies. So it came as a shock to everyone when she came barging in their room
crying about how she did not get accepted to her dream job.

chuckled. “Kept whining how the world is

Jake seemed to think for a second and
Reggie was literally on his tiptoes from the suspense. “I forgot man, I guess it was (Y/N) or something? I forgot the last
Jake was cut off by Reggie’s jaw dropping
in shock before genuinely laughing. Throughout their four years of being
friends Jake has never seen Reggie this happy, even during his championship
game. Reggie looked at Jake who was looking at him as if he grew a second head.

patting his shoulders sympathetically. “In
behalf of her, let me apologize.”

“That’s my girl.”
You just finished face timing Cheryl that
was now living in London for some business transaction and she couldn’t stop
bitching about the rain ruining her hair, which, in turn, just gave you
something to laugh about.

You sighed as the hot drink touch your
tongue, fucking heaven. As you were about to go in your car you felt a small
tug on your coat. You turned around and saw a cute little kid that had gorgeous
curly locks hiding a sunflower behind his back.

distance between you and the kid. “Are
you lost?” You looked around you. “Where’s

and saw a small card tied around the sunflower with a note that read:
more from where that came from.
Just as you were about to look for the
little boy a tall figure suddenly appeared from your peripheral view. And just
like in your wildest dreams, there he
was: standing in front of you, beautiful as ever, holding a bouquet of sunflowers
and wearing that smirk that made your stomach flip in the most beautiful way
possible ever since you were kids.
Before you could utter another word he sped
up his last two steps and cradled your face with his free hand for a kiss. A kiss, a kiss that you have imagined
over and over again, a kiss that was foreign yet so goddamn familiar from the
amount of times you have dreamt and daydreamed about it. A kiss from Reggie
Mantle was all it took for your heart to beat the same irregular beats that was
reserved only for him.
I took you a moment to recover from the
shock but when you did you wrapped your hands around his neck and pulled him in
deeper. You waited too long for this kiss and you never wanted it to end and he
probably had the same thought in mind. But sadly, like everything amazing, it
had to, or else you were gonna die from lack of oxygen.
Reggie leaned in your forehead and laughed
just as you started to giggle. “I guess
you missed me?” you whispered.

believing that after all these years he was finally here in your arms, looking
at you with the same dark eyes and intense gaze that makes you want to melt.
love you.” Reggie made her forget her train of
thoughts with those words. “If the kiss
didn’t make it clear enough. I, Reggie Mantle, is in love with you and swears
to be in love with you in this lifetime and the next.”
You couldn’t help but laugh. Pulling him in
for another kiss. “Promise?” You
offered him your pinky.
He laughed, crossing both of pinkies and
pushed both of your fists and thumbs together.
“Promise.” He gave you another peck. “And,
I believe you owe me a date.”
do I now?” you teased, giggling when he tried to
kiss your neck. “Where would you like to
waited for years for this date, pup,” he said
letting go of your face as he opted to wrap his arms around your shoulders as
you wrapped yours around his waist. He gave you the bouquet which you held with
your free hand. “I’ll go wherever the fuck you want.”
News! After dating for three years and being
engaged in one, star football player, Reggie Mantle and his fiancé’ the award
winning journalist and published author, (Y/F/N), has officially tied the knot
in secret in their hometown, Riverdale, with only a chosen few people present,
one note-worthy guest was Mrs. Mantle’s best friend, Cheryl Blossom, the CEO of
Blossom Inc. and world-renowned author
of two award-winning novels in her spare time. It was said to be a big event
despite the small town in Riverdale as stolen shots were taken of the grand
wedding for the official photographs of the wedding was announced to be kept in
private and not to be publicized in the request of the couple.
This power-couple had been best friends
their whole lives and decided to tie the knot right after Reggie Mantle
surprised his, now, wife with her dream house in California where they were
rumored to finally settle. The couple is about to head into their 2-month
honeymoon that will be spent in different cities around the world that they
have planned to visit ever since they were kids.
After you’re done crying and emptying your
box of tissue we dare you to find us a more perfect couple, we’ll wait.
(Y/N) was breathing in the fresh air from
the morning breeze. She stared at the view from her balcony: the trees, the
lake, and the city far, far away. Reggie really thought everything through when
he built this house just for her. He built her a home where she is safe,
contented, and happy and she could never thank him enough.
She jumped a bit when she felt a fluffy
blanket, which turned out to be her robe, being wrapped around her by none
other than her husband. Even after a
year and a half of being married she still feels giddy thinking about Reggie
being her husband. Finally.
okay?” Reggie whispered, afraid of breaking this
serene moment as he hugged you from behind and gave you a peck on the side of
You decided to face your husband and give
him a proper good morning kiss, wrapping your arms on his waist as he wrapped
his arms around you. “I feel perfect.”
You nuzzled your face on his warm neck relishing on the comfort only he can
give you. You looked up at him and saw him looking out at the view before
turning his eyes on you making you wonder what you did in your past life to
have a man like him to keep forever.
“We’re in love, aren’t we?”
He chuckled at your question before leaning
hooking a stray hair in your ear. “I
can’t speak for you but you got me pretty hooked, pup.” You looked up at
him through your lashes to give him a glare as if to say ‘are you fucking kidding me?’ and Reggie grinned, the same boyish
grin from when you were in Riverdale, giving you another kiss
don’t have to worry about that for a very, very long time, pup.” Reggie sighed, pulling you closer to him, as if that was possible.”Your heart won’t break around here. I’ll
make sure of that.”
You squealed when he leaned down and hooked
his arms at the back of your thighs and sat down, taking you in his lap. You
watched as the sun rose quietly, sharing the morning coffee you made to help
you get ready for the day, small kisses and giggles shared every now and then
and in that exact moment you realized you could stay there forever and already
find the life that was your definition of perfect
But then on cue you heard the familiar
wailing of your two other babies on their bedroom making you giggle and Reggie
groan, leaning on your shoulders. “Oh
stop it, you were the one who was begging me for a baby.”
for one baby, pup. Just one, I’m blaming your fertile ass for this.” Reggie complained but was still ahead of you towards his babies room. He loved being a father
and everybody knows it. When you were
pregnant anxious would be an understatement when defining Reggie as he watched
your every move and made sure you were eating only the best to make sure his
babies would grow to become ‘as strong as me and as beautiful as their mother’.
Heck, nobody could touch you without receiving a glare from Reggie which in
turn would result to you smacking him in the head as he pouted but still
continued to follow you around like a lost guard dog.

right arm and picked up the older twin, Jason, on the other. “My babies can hear you.”

of the door open and Cheryl’s voice from below. “WHERE ARE MY DEAR DARLINGS?!”

making him pout. God, his daughter had him whipped. “Let’s go down before Cheryl wrecks havoc in here too.”

to a now sleeping Jason, as he went downstairs and saw Cheryl with a dollhouse
and a toy car that looked too expensive and too realistic to be owned by a
couple of 7 month old babies .”One day
I’ll just snap and assassinate her, I swear to God.”

You couldn’t help but watch as Reggie and
Cheryl bickered back and forth while Jason was silently sleeping in his crib
and Cherry was babbling nonsense while sitting comfortably in your lap.

me,” Reggie seemed genuinely offended and you
couldn’t help but laugh. ‘Who’s richer than who’ has been a small game in
between Reggie and Cheryl, heck, even Archie, who is now an international song
artist, and Moose who is an owner of a couple of successful gyms would join
every now and then.
I guess nothing really ever truly changed.
Reggie and Cheryl just can’t admit they love each other with a gun aimed at
their heads, you were still hopelessly in-love with your husband, and he still
looks at you as if you were the reason the sun continues to shine every
morning. Only now you had two little angels to call your own and more money
than you can spend.
Not bad for a shy girl from Riverdale who
was secretly in love with her bestfriend.
You looked at your family, once more.
Leaning back, placing Cherry on your chest, you sighed in contentment.
Not bad at all.
A/N: I’m gonna miss writing this so fucking much. Fuck.
