Snowflakes (Jughead x Reader)

Request: can you do a jughead/riverdale imagine where jughead breaks up with the reader, and the whole “squad” leaves the reader, so in despair she goes to the river to kill herself ( like what Cheryl did ) and Jughead saves her?

Words: 755

The snowflakes fluttered around you as you stood by Sweetwater river. Your hair getting a new shade as they covered your head. You looked out upon the frozen river, noticing how calm everything seemed to be in this very moment. You wished your life was like this place but you knew it wasn’t going to happen. Over the last few weeks your life had completely turned upside down and it was all thanks to one person called Jughead. Jughead and you had dated for almost a year until he broke it off. There was no reasoning as to why, just him saying the same line over again which was “It’s just not going to work anymore”. You were heartbroken and for weeks now you have been going over every little time you had spent together to try and see where it all went wrong but nothing came up. Your were searching for something that was impossible to find. You thought you could be okay but you were dead wrong. Your friends or more like Jugheads friends had completely turned their backs to you. They acted like you didn’t existence anymore which led to another part of your heart to be damaged. The thought that they were only friends with you because of Jughead became true as time went on and the memories you have had with everyone became fake. They didn’t care and neither did anyone else.

The river was covered in deep snow. You could feel the wetness entered your short boots as you took each step. A smiled appeared on your face as you finally hit the middle of the river. The happiness you felt, in the newly white area was something you hadn’t felt in a while. This is where you wanted to be, in a place where you could be free from everything and everyone. But that didn’t stop you from letting the tears fall. You knew that this wasn’t a fairytale and that not everything you wanted would stay. The grief washed over you as you saw moving figures in the distance. Of course they had to come and ruin the one thing you truly wanted at this point.

 “Y/N” You heard Betty call but you refused to turn and look. You wanted them to see the pain they had caused you but you didn’t think you were ready to face them. As much as you loved them you now wanted to go.

 “Come on Y/N, don’t fool around. Get off the ice” Archie yelled knowing you could hear him. You still did nothing but watched the snowflakes fade into the ground just like you wanted.

 “Y/N GET OFF THE ICE!” Jughead shouted. His voice caught your attention more than the others and you turned to see the four as anger flowed through your veins

 “WHY DO YOU CARE ALL OF THE SUDDEN” You yelled. It made you angry that they came to the one place that you finally found peace.

 “We always care Y/N” You huffed at Veronica’s statement.

 “You have a good way of showing it”

 “Babe can you please just get off the ice” Jughead pleaded. You didn’t hear the ice starting to crack under your feet only paying attention to Jug calling you his babe. He had no right after everything. “Why are you doing this? You could die, just get off the damn ice”

 “Did you ever think that was the point?” You said as your voice cracked. The tears were falling down both cheeks now and you couldn’t make them stop. If you never spoke maybe they would of thought that your stained cheeks were from the snowflakes. The look on their face were filled with shock from your words but the only person you cared about was Jughead. “It’s your fault I’m here! I needed to get away from this mess. The mess that you left and would call my heart. I don’t want to be here” You wiped away some tears before you continue “I want it to stop. The pain. I need it to fade”

 “Y/N” Jughead spoke as he took a step onto the ice but the small worried moment was short lived as the ice shooked. Jughead head quickly shot up to meet your tear filled eyes but not for long as the ice broke right under your feet sending you down into the water below. Jughead heart dropped to his stomach as he watched the ice break away from under you, not knowing what else to do he ran out to find you, against all of the yelling of his friends.

 The water burned your skin as it came in contact from being so cold. The pain you had felt moments before was nothing compared to this. You open your mouth to scream but you were only met with the freezing water filling your lungs. Everything felt heavy and you couldn’t do anything about it but close you eyes because when you did everything started to fade including you.

 Jughead watched your eyes flutter open and your body shiver. Pulling his coat off of his warm body to place around you. He felt relieved that you alive but he could only stared at your broken frame in front of him not caring about what the others were saying. He knew help was on the way he didn’t need to know that, the only thing he needed to know was something that no one could tell him. How do you fix a girl that you broke in the first place? Where do you start? Because right now all Jughead knew, was that you were almost gone. The only piece left was small as snowflakes.

Finally finished this Riverdale fanart! I can’t draw cars accurately so forgive me about that matter ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
