So I absolutely love Bughead (who doesn't?) and I need more fanfics. Could you possibly write something where all of their friends don't approve of their relationship because Jughead doesn't seem to care but it slowly grows on them as the relationship goes on?
Thanks so much! I Got you!
Betty and jughead, the oddest pair to walk Riverdale halls since Dilton Doiley had landed that model from Sweden.
Jughead Jones was all types of dark and moody, keeping his head down and a permanent grimace on his usually grumpy face, Betty Cooper on the other hand, was sunshine wrapped up in a pretty blonde bottle, always willing to lend a hand or a smile to absolutely anyone.
So when the pair came out to the school as a couple, the response was not positive. Almost everyone would awkwardly stare at Betty when she clung to jugheads arm chatting his ear off as he nodded absently. and when he showed up at football games, lurking in the corners to watch her cheer they were both on the receiving end of some disapproving stares. The support their relationship received left nothing to be desired.
Veronica lodge was no exception, she had pulled Betty out of her booth at pops shooting Jughead a challenging look, as archie slid in across from him. Dragging Betty to the counter, she placed a comforting hand on her best friends shoulder.
“Betty, we have to talk.”
Raising a brow, Betty quirked an unamused smile
“I kinda caught that when you dragged me away from my boyfriend. What’s up?”
“It’s about Jughead..”
“No.” Betty cut her off
Pleading eyes caught Betty’s
“Betty just listen.”
“No. I’m not doing this with you, you’re my best friend v and I love you, but we are not discussing my relationship, we’ve already done this countless times.” Betty turned to leave by Ronnie grabbed her wrist.
“You deserve someone who cares about you, someone who actually wants to be with you, I love Jughead too Betty, but he isn’t made for relationships. You know that.” Shaking her head, Betty leaned against the counter. While Veronica was grilling the blonde, archie had taken it upon himself to share his opinions with jughead.
“She’s a great girl, betty I mean.” Archie said anxiously
Jugheads face turned to stone
“Yeah, I know. That’s why I’m dating her.” His tone was even and calculated as he stared the red head in the eyes.
“Is that why?” Archie challenged.
Placing his burger on his plate Jughead leveled Archie
“What’s that supposed to mean ..pal?”
Archie looked serious now, no longer nervous just concerned.
“Look jug, you’re my best friend but so is Betty and people… well people are talking. They’re saying you’re only dating Betty because you feel bad, you don’t really care about her, you just owe her for getting your dad a job.”
Jugheads knuckles turned white as he clutched the table so tight he thought he might splinter the wood.
“Me and Betty don’t pay attention to gossip, we know how we feel and that’s what matters.”
Archie shook his head , unconvinced
“does she?” his eyes moved to the blonde walking over to the table the raven haired girl shaking her head as they reached the two boys.
“Juggie, can you walk me home, I’m not feeling too well.” Betty said quietly. He just nodded, stuffing his text book in his bag and grabbing her water bottle. He placed his hand on the small of her back, gently shoving her to the door.
“I’ll see you guys at school.” She threw over her shoulder.
As soon as they hit the street, Jughead grabbed her backpack out of her hands and thread his fingers through hers. She smiled at him weakly and he returned it giving her fingers a squeeze.
“Are you really feeling sick or just sick of our annoying friends?”
She giggled “a little bit of both, I think I’m just tired is all, Alice cooper has decided her youngest daughter can not get Bs so the studying has been upped quite a bit.” She leaned into his shoulder as they walked.
“Well Jughead jones has decided his girlfriend can get whatever grades she wants as long as she gets the appropriate amount of sleep.” He said raising a brow at her as she twisted to see his face.
Reaching up she pressed her lips to his and they fell into familiar conversation about their plans for this weekend, too soon they arrived at her door and his hands went to her waist, he took a deep breathe ducking his eyes to meet hers
“I love you, you know that right?“he asked seriously
She smiled her heartbreakingly gorgeous smile, eyes lighting up as she placed her hands on his cheeks
"I know. I love you too, so much.”
When they kissed, he felt the same warm, safe essence of home that was purely Betty. He felt her getting more and more passionate and he could the moan that escaped his lips. Sliding his hands lower in her hips he tugged her center to his. Gasping into his mouth as his lips moved to her neck, nipping lightly
“Juggie” she whispered
“Betty.” He returned, panting slightly in her ear
All too soon the familiar porch light turned on and he knew Hal had heard the pair.
“Okay Juliet, time to return to your tower.” He said pecking her lips one more time.
She giggled moving to the door, “I’ll see you tommorow Romeo.” He turned throwing her a wink and a lazy wave. Before she called his name causing him to turn back.
“We’re okay. We always are.” She smiled showing off her pearly whites.
He laughed and returned her smile
“We’re okay. We always are.”
The next day at school, the pair was greeted by the familiar, questioning stares and the faces of their friends.
Cheryl was ranting about the fact that one of the vixens had dyed their hair pink.
“Our uniforms are blue! Blue! No one can pull off pink hair, literally no one.”
“I bet Betty could.” Everyone’s eyes snapped to Jughead who was smiling down at the blushing blonde connected to his arm. Looking up he noticed everyone’s eyes on his and shrugged “s'true”
Who knew Jughead could be cute? Veronica sure didn’t, And by the looks on everyone else’s face they didn’t either.
The cute just kept happening and Veronica and Archie were certainly confused.
At lunch Betty had started coughing, choking on the apple she was eating. Jughead had nearly broken an ankle reaching for the water in his bag, after she had calmed down he was rubbing her back soothingly “no more apples for you” he had said dropping a quick kiss to her lips.
During free period, they had all decided to hang out in the blue and gold office. Leaning back on the couch Veronica close to Archie, Kevin had started laughing.
“I’m guessing this is jugheads station.” The desk was covered in a mess of paperwork and food wrappers but what caught the most attention was the framed picture of Betty and jughead as kids, sitting in a tree house holding hands displayed proudly amongst the mess.
Archie chuckled “is this Betty’s doing?” He gestured towards the photo.
Jughead shook his head
“No I put that there. It’s my desk.”
It went quiet in the tiny office, minus Cheryl’s declaration of
“That’s hashtag cute.”
Archie and Veronica shared a glance.
The final straw was when, the group was walking home. Archie had asked Jughead to come over and play video games with him. Betty was wrapped up in his jacket and she went to take it off, She lived next door so it wasn’t that far a walk to brave the cold. Jughead immediately placed his hands on her shoulders keeping the jacket firmly in place.
“I don’t think so. Keep it on, it’s cold out. Don’t need you getting sick, I’ll pick it up tonight.” Then with a smile he was walking into the Andrews house.
An hour later Veronica was laying in Betty’s bed reading the newest glamour magazine, her brain on something entirely different
“What was with jughead today?” She blurted out
Betty looked up from painting her toes, a confused expression on her face.
“What do you mean? He seemed fine to me.”
Veronica shook her head
“No I mean he’s fine, it’s just he was extra… lovey today.”
Smiling gently at her friend Betty turned back to her toes.
“He’s always like that, you just never payed attention before.”
Staring at the beautiful blonde girl next door in front of her, she couldn’t help but think
Maybe Betty was right, maybe she just wasn’t looking hard enough.
Love hides in mysterious places.
