Warnings: Mentions of Periods, pretty long imagine.
Pairing: Betty and Jughead
Betty opened her eyes due to the morning sun shining into her window. She rubbed the sleep out of her eyes and sat up from her bed. Something didn’t feel quite right. She got up from her bed only to see a good amount of blood on her pink bed sheets. Betty’s eyes widened as she looked down and saw blood in between her legs. She quickly rushed to the bathroom to try to clean herself up as quickly as possible.
Ever since Betty started getting her period, it was very different from other girls’ menstrual cycles. Betty would get excruciating stomach cramps and heavy blood flow that wouldn’t lighten up until 5 days later. She would also get super emotional and moody. She was the exact opposite of her regular self.
While Betty was in the bathroom, tending to her issue, Jughead Jones, her boyfriend of 2 months, was trying to get ahold of her. He tried calling her cell phone but she didn’t answer.
“Juliet is probably still asleep” he thought to himself. He figured that it would be the gentleman thing to do to pick her up from her house and walk to school together. He tried calling 3 more times and still no answer. Jughead was starting to get worried and suspicious. He finally reached the Cooper residence and rang the doorbell.
"Hello Jughead. Please come in” Mrs. Cooper said, stepping away from the door so Jughead can enter.
"Hi. Um… do you know of Betty is still asleep?” Jughead asked,
"I’m not quite sure. She hasn’t come down for breakfast yet.” Mrs. Cooper proclaimed.
Jughead checked the time. It was 7:30. Classes were gonna begin soon.
"Want me to go see what’s taking Betty so long?” Jughead asked,
"Of course. Go ahead. Would you like anything?” Mrs. Cooper asked,
"Um… no thanks. I’m fine.” Jughead said before rushing upstairs.
Betty was sitting on the bathroom floor in agonizing pain. She was clenching her stomach and on the verge of tears. Jughead reached the top of the stairs and saw Betty’s bedroom door open. He peeked inside and everything seemed normal. Except for one thing.
The bed caught his eyes. The bedspread was lifted up slightly. Jughead lifted it up and saw the ruined bed sheets.
"Betty, I’m heading out to Chicago for my business trip. Have a great day at school. Behave yourself.” and with that, Betty’s mom slammed the door and proceeded going to work.
Jughead started to panic. So many thoughts ran through his mind. Was she taken in the middle of the night? Did she hurt herself?
"Betty?” Jughead said, slightly raising his voice.
A cry of agony rang through the empty silence of the house. Jughead raced out of the room and started banging on the bathroom door.
"Jughead…” a weak little voice said through the door.
"Don’t worry Bets. I’m coming” Jughead said, ready to go after what was hurting his girlfriend. He braced himself as he opened the door and saw nobody but his girlfriend on the floor.
Betty was digging her fingernails into the palms of her hands due to the pain she was in. Jughead bent down to see what was wrong.
"Betty where are you hurt?!” Jughead said, still in a panicky matter.
Betty was kinda embarrassed to tell Jughead what was going on. She just clung to his hoodie and yelled in pain. Jughead didn’t know what was going on.
He looked on the floor next to the toilet, an empty package for pads. Jughead then realized what was going on. Betty groaned and he helped her up.
"Betty, um… are you on your period?” Jughead asked,
Betty’s cheeks flushed into a light pink color. That’s all he needed to know. He pulled her in closer.
"Betty, we are boyfriend and girlfriend now. We can talk about things like this. You don’t have to be ashamed about it.” Jughead said.
Betty sighed and muttered a slight “okay”. Jughead wiped her tears and tried to see if Betty needed any help in her bedroom. Betty slowly walked out of the bathroom and into her bedroom, trying to tend to her bedsheets. Jughead followed behind her and heard her moan out in pain.
"Here, just hang tight for a second.” Jughead said. He quickly rushed over to the bed and tore everything off of Betty’s mattress. He rushed to the laundry room and put everything in the wash.
By the time everything was situated in the bedroom, it was already 8:06. They were late for school. Jughead knew that Betty was gonna be a total wreck if she went to school.
"I’ll call your mom and tell her what’s going on. Turns out Romeo is gonna have to take care of his Juliet today” Jughead said, giving a little smile at her.
"Ok Juggie.” Betty said.
After a 5 minute discussion about what to do to get rid of Betty’s cramps and to keep her maintained, Jughead hung up the phone and walked into the living room. Betty was fast asleep on the couch. He didn’t want to wake her up so he quickly wrote a note, saying that he is going to the local pharmacy to get certain things for Betty. And that is including pads, comfort food, and a couple of romantic chick flicks.
He hurried back quickly, not knowing if her situation got worse or not. But luckily, she was still fast asleep. Jughead took off his jacket and slowly climbed onto the couch with Betty. She cuddled into his chest and he rubbed her shoulder and gave her little forehead kisses until he eventually fell asleep with her.
Later after their nap, Betty was laying on the cough while Jughead was ordering some takeout from Pop’s for lunch. Jughead was in the mood for a burger, but Betty preferred have a tub of ice cream instead. Jughead just stared at her while she was laying on the couch with a heating pad on her stomach for the cramps and taking spoonful after spoon full of vanilla ice cream.
"How long is your mom gone for her business trip?” Jughead asked,
“10 days” Betty muffled, ice cream still in her mouth.
“Looks like I’m crashing here for a while until she gets back” Jughead said. Betty didn’t mind at all. She was so glad to have Jughead.
