And shout out to @nyan-wolf, @lumivalkoruusunpuna, and @lolimomo-tan for sharing more ways to say raccoon, and an extra special shout out to @kuhullan for educating me about the word raccoon, because I honestly didn’t know this! I’m really glad that humans just see a raccoon and go HAND WASH BEAR
Prompt from anon: Hi! I was wondering if I could request a Jughead x reader based on some of the latest episode? Like whenever Cheryl is hitting Jughead the reader pulls him away from her and instead of Weatherbee coming in, the reader takes Jughead away and comforts him about his dad and stuff? MUCH ANGST AND MUCH FLUFF PLEASE
A/N: Hope you like it!
“Y/N, have you heard anything from Jughead today?” Veronica asked as you took a seat next to her in the cafeteria.
“No,” you said. “I’ll go over to Archie’s later and talk to him though.”
Veronica and the rest of the group nodded.
“It’s better that he didn’t come in today anyway.” Archie said as he took a bite of his apple.
“I agree,” Betty said. “Coming here would just be—oh my God.”
At her tone, you and Veronica turned around, eyes widening when you saw Jughead walk into the cafeteria, making his way over to Cheryl’s table.
“What is he doing?” you hissed.
Jughead stopped in front of Cheryl’s table, making the grieving ginger look up at him.
The entire cafeteria became silent.
“I’m sorry, Cheryl.” he said truthfully.
Everyone held their breath to see what would happen next.
Cheryl slowly got up, making her way over to Jughead so they were inches apart. Then she slapped him. Hard. You and the rest of the gang flinched before the Blossom girl began to pound her fists on Jughead’s chest. He didn’t even move, he just stood there and took it. You and Archie sprang up, Archie holding Cheryl back from hitting his best friend, you dragging your boyfriend out of the cafeteria before Weatherbee got to him.
When the two of you entered the hallway, Jughead began to walk away from you, hands shoved deep in his pockets.
“Jughead!” you called.
“Leave me alone, Y/N.” he snapped as he entered the Blue & Gold office, the door slamming behind him, leaving you all alone in the hallway.
You were hurt at his words but you knew better than to walk away. Jughead didn’t snap at you because he was angry at you. He snapped because he was feeling hurt.
You took a deep breath and followed Jughead into the Blue & Gold’s office.
At first you didn’t see him anywhere as the room was pitch black. Then you heard sniffling coming from the back of the room. You turned the lights on and your heart broke when you saw your boyfriend. He had his knees pulled up to his chest, his arms wrapped around his legs, and he was crying softly into his jeans.
“Juggie…” you trailed off as you rushed over to him, kneeling next to him.
You wrapped your arms around him and he instantly melted into your touch. He cried into your shirt and you gently moved your palm up and down his back.
“Shh…” you soothed. “Juggie, it’s okay.”
“Nothing’s okay,” he sobbed out. “My dad’s a murderer.”
You had never heard him sound so broken before. And you certainly had never seen him like this before.
“It’s going to be alright,” you reassured. “No matter what happens, you’ve got me, okay? You’ve always got me.”
Jughead didn’t answer, he just continued crying. You were silent after that, just settling for rubbing your palm up and down his back slowly.
You would’ve stayed there forever, just to make Jughead was alright. He was your world.
And you were his. And the only good thing he had left.
A/N: This was kinda short but I think it turned out really well! Hope you enjoyed! Please send feedback!
