Hii could you one post-first kiss where Betty and Jughead are confused as to where they stand relationship wise and Trev asks Betty out again in front of all her friends and while everyone but jughead is urging her to say yes, she's unsure?
He watched her, all the time, he was always watching her, his eyes now almost always drawn to those soft lips he had kissed less than a week ago.
For the amount of time he was staring at her, he managed to avoid her eyes at all costs, only being around her when their friends were close by. What was he supposed to say?
“Hey Betty, I know you probably don’t feel the same way but I’d like to kiss you again. All the time If that’s okay?”
His deep gaze on the back of her blonde ponytail was interrupted when Veronica squealed, pulling her phone up!
“Gossip alert. B, pay attention this ones about you.”
Betty instantly snapped her head up from her tray
“Me? What about me?” She looked nervous, fidgety. He wanted to tell her it was fine, not to worry.
He didn’t, he just dug back into his chips, keeping his eyes on the raven haired drama queen.
“Well rumor has it, that little date you went on with trev? It went much better than you told us annnndd he plans on asking you out again. Ginger Lopez heard it straight from the source.”
Betty blushed, her eyes meeting jugheads for the first time in days.
He didn’t look away this time, just stared at her. Trev? You had to be kidding me. As if one date wasn’t enough.
Who was he kidding, one date with Betty Cooper would never be enough. Not for anyone.
Kevin clapped excitedly and Valerie tossed a grape at Betty, raising a brow.
“Trev? That delicious piece of chocolate? Girl, you’re one lucky cat.”
Archie shoved her playfully
Valerie giggled “just saying.”
He watched as Betty placed a comforting hand on Veronica’s shoulder, the ladder looking almost heartbroken. Leave it to Betty, to think of others while she was on the spot.
Shaking her shoulders and throwing Betty a grateful smile
“Anyway, you have to take him up on his offer, the winter formal is coming up and you two would look so cute together.”
Kevin nodded “for sure, I totally ship this. You two can be the new Beyoncé and jay z of this school.”
As Kevin and Veronica went back and forth, naming power couples , betty was laughing nervously
“I don’t know about that, I’m not really interested.” She threw Jughead a quick glance, trying to gauge his reaction. He tried to remain impassive, inside? He was fuming. Couldn’t they see she didn’t want to date that imbecile?
“Oh please Betty , you have to give it a try, all guys are awkward on their first dates, right Archie?” Veronica turned to Archie.
Archie shrugged lazily,
“She has a point, you can’t really go off of first dates, ya know what you should do?”
Betty shifted her shoulders “what?”
“Kiss him, it’s the only way to really know if there’s chemistry.”
Alright screw this.
Slamming his hands on the table, Jughead stood up, leveling everyone at the table with his glare.
“She doesn’t have to talk to him, she doesn’t have to go out with him and she most definitely doesn’t have to kiss him! She said she wasn’t interested, drop it.” He threatened.
Betty’s eyes were wide and she was staring at him, the hint of a smile gracing her face.
Veronica was not about to let that slide
“What does it matter to you jug? The cocky smirk was a permanent feature on Veronica’s face.
He shook his head, well here goes nothing
“It matters to me because I’m courting Betty.”
Did he just say courting?
Suddenly he heard the soft giggle come from his favorite blonde. Turning his head to her he looked at her with a questioning smile
She grabbed his hand from across the table and smiled bigger than he had ever seen.
“You heard the man, I’m being courted.”
The whole table erupted with questions, but Jughead didn’t care, those lips he loved so much were currently gracing him with the most beautiful smile he had ever seen.
Returning her smile he knew this was far from over.
He couldn’t help but be excited
