You had run away from home.
Wait, backtrack. Maybe you didn’t really run away. Okay, so maybe you packed two days worth of clothes and maybe you had in fact run all the way to the edge of town to Jughead’s home at the drive-in theater without telling your parents you were leaving or where you were going. You did just have a big fight with them. They had sent to your room and told you that you weren’t allowed out until the next morning when you had to go to school.
You waited until they were asleep before quietly packing a bag of clothes and sneaking out your house. Once you were out the window and had climbed down the drainpipe, you began to run to Jughead’s place. Despite it being 1:30 in the morning, you knew he’d be up, probably playing silent films on the drive-in screen. Sure enough, when you arrived at his place fifteen minutes later, the opening credits of City Lights were playing on the screen. You smirked as you made your way to the projection room’s door, knocking on it gently. You heard shuffling as someone inside made their way across the projector room to the door, swinging it open revealing your boyfriend Jughead Jones clad wearing a gray teeshirt and sweatpants. Jughead’s expression of confusion when he saw you at his doorstep with a bag swung over your shoulder almost made you laugh.
“Y/N?” he asked. “What are you doing here?”
“Can I stay here for the night?” you asked.
Jughead nodded as he stepped aside, letting you in.
“Sure, but why? What happened?” he asked.
You dropped your bag onto the floor.
“Bad fight with my parents. Guess I was feeling rebellious.” you muttered, realizing how childish you sounded.
“Alright, Ms. Rebel Without a Cause,” he said. “Want to watch a film?” he asked pointing to the silent film playing on the screen.
You nodded and Jughead pulled up a chair for you to sit on right next to his. You took a seat and began to watch.
Jughead looked at his watch and yawned. The movie was almost over and he had nearly fallen asleep twice already, but you were immersed in the film, watching the movie with such intensity it would’ve made a film critic paranoid.
Jughead cleared his throat.
“Do you want me to stop the projector or—“
“I don’t want you to stop.” you mumbled blindly, still entranced.
Jughead snorted at your choice of words and looked up at you. You met his gaze and your eyes widened as you realized what you said.
“I-I just meant that-that I didn’t want you to stop the projection.” you mumbled, looking down and bushing furiously.
Jughead laughed, but turned the projection off anyway as the closing credits of the movie began to roll.
“Y/N, it’s 3 in the morning and I’m exhausted.” he said, yawning again.
He turned off the lights, getting into bed. He waved at you to join him and you smiled as you attempted to share your boyfriend’s tiny bed, the two of you squishing together. Jughead chuckled.
“You comfortable?” he joked as you snuggled into his chest.
“I am actually.” you answered.
Jughead looked down at you and smiled, seeing that you truly were comfortable.
“You know your parents are going to kill you, right?” he asked, holding you closer to him.
You shrugged as your eyes began to droop.
“No. Regrets.” you said before drifting off to sleep, content in Jughead’s warm embrace.
“Do you think Jughead knows where she is?” Veronica asked Kevin as they drove into the drive-in theater.
The whole town was looking for you after your parents had called the cops earlier that morning when they saw you were gone. School had been cancelled and a massive search party was underway.
“Obviously. Who else would know?”
“You really think he’s in there?” Veronica asked.
“When is he not in there?”
Veronica shrugged in agreement before parking her car. She and Kevin got out, making their way to the projector room. Kevin raised his hand to knock when Veronica suddenly opened the door, making her way into the projection room. She stopped immediately when she saw the two of you sleeping together, Jughead’s arm around you and your head on his chest.
“Oh. My. God,” Kevin whispered, fumbling for his phone in his pocket. “They’re so cute when they’re asleep.”
Veronica rolled her eyes as Kevin took a couple pictures. She opened her mouth to yell at you and Jughead and wake the both of you up when Kevin grabbed her arm.
“Don’t you dare,” he hissed. “Look at them.”
Veronica turned to you and Jughead again. She crossed her arms and was silent. Maybe she’d let you sleep a few more minutes after all.
