Word Count: 1,474
A/N: Sorry for the long wait, I went into a funk and felt unmotivated, but I think this brought me back into writing. I hope you enjoy it! :)
I came up with this title based on the song Goosebumps by Travis Scott, so if you want to listen to it while reading, you can!
I do have a question however, what do you think will happen to Mr. Andrews in season two? Do you think he’s going to live or not?
Today had been a crazy day, literally since the moment you had woken up that morning.
The murder of Jason Blossom had been the main priority of every second, no matter where you went, it somehow connected to Jason.
But today, today was different.
You and your friends had found evidence, and what you saw was something you wish you could of unseen.
Jason was tied to a chair, looking as if he’d been beaten by a serpent.
The worst part though?
That was when his own father came out of nowhere, looking at Jason in disgust.
You remember watching intently, the room dead silent, unable to move or speak.
And then it happened, his own father killed his son.
You felt tears fall down your cheeks, everyone frozen in fear and shock.
You wiped your cheeks, everyone sniffling, wiping their cheeks too.
You didn’t know what to think, or to say, everyone was still stunned, except Betty.
She slowly stood up, bringing the phone to hear ear, everyone watching her in concern.
“Betty what are you doing?” Jughead questioned carefully, but Betty just ignored him.
“You need to get out of that house. Now.” She spoke carefully, before explaining what actually happened to Jason, and who killed him.
Later that day the evidence was given to the police, giving the proof everyone needed of Jason’s murder.
What nobody expected however was for his father to commit suicide to get out of what he had done.
The town of Riverdale kept creating more mysteries than answers, and it drove you all crazy.
But for that small short moment you all were happy, finally normal teenagers having fun together and not worrying about anything else.
You all hung out at Pop’s that night, having milkshakes and just having fun.
You all felt like normal teenagers.
Until later that night.
You were at home, about to go to sleep when your phone rang.
“Y/N! It’s my dad.. Shot.. Help.. Hurry.. Pop’s..” Then the line went dead.
You were already out the door, the cold air giving you goosebumps, you didn’t have time to grab a jacket, you just needed to get to Pop’s.
When you got there you couldn’t believe your own eyes, there on the ground was Fred Andrews, covered in blood and Archie holding his dad close.
You quickly pulled out your phone, calling 911, telling them what had happened.
You rushed over to Archie, letting him and his dad know that an ambulance was on its way.
“Mr. Andrews, you’re going to be okay alright?” You spoke calmly, trying to hide your nerves in your throat.
He just weakly nodded, making you internally cringe, and Archie let out small sobs.
Minutes later the ambulance arrived, taking Fred to the hospital, you and Archie both went with them.
You were scared, scared for Fred, and scared for Archie.
You had never seen him like this before, his face was showing a mixture of emotions.
This was the first time you really took in his features, but you quickly snapped out of it.
The ambulance soon pulled up to the hospital, quickly taking Mr. Andrews to the emergency room.
You walked beside Archie who wanted to go with his dad, but they wouldn’t let him, making Archie angry.
You placed your hands on his arms, making him realize you were there with him still.
He took a deep breath before sitting down in a chair.
You sat down next to him, offering him some water.
You could see he was zoned out, you didn’t know whether you should tap him on the shoulder or not, but decided to anyways.
“Archie, have some water.” You spoke quietly, making him blink a few times before accepting the water.
You wanted to ask how he was doing, but you already knew, just by the way he looked.
But there was something that bothered you, he looked different.
He didn’t have the same Archie look, he had a different atmosphere around him now.
It was darker.
It gave you goosebumps.
“Archie why don’t you try to sleep.” You suggested, which he refused at first, but slowly gave in.
He laid down across the chairs, his head laying gently in your lap.
You smiled softly at him, trying to get him to relax for a bit.
You started running your fingers through his hair, calming him down a bit.
You could see the goosebumps on his arms, making you smile slightly.
It could of been because he was cold, but you wanted to believe that you caused it.
That you caused something good for once in the red haired boys life.
You noticed him shifting a bit, but continued to observe your surrounds in the waiting room.
You felt his hand grab yours, catching your attention instantly.
“Thank you Y/N.. For being here..” He mumbled, looking up at you.
“Of course, I’m always going to be here for you.” You smiled, continuing to play with his hair.
“I don’t know what I’d do without you, you always know how to make everything seem so much better, even in horrible situations.” He sighed, closing his eyes.
You didn’t know what to say, you never really thought about that before.
“I don’t like seeing people unhappy.” You simply stated after a while of thinking.
You glanced down at the red haired boy, only to see he had fallen asleep.
You moved the air out of his eyes, and sure enough he was fast asleep.
You sat there for hours as he slept, you took this as your moment to really think.
You realized that Archie eased your mind, he made you feel like everything would be fine, just like he said you made him feel.
In that moment, sitting there in the hospital waiting room, Archie asleep in your lap, it hit you, that you loved the red haired boy.
And that is what created the most goosebumps you’d ever had, you just told yourself you loved your best friend.
A lot can really happen in one day, even the most unexpected things.
Like being in love with your best friend.
