However, Southside High has brought him an odd comfort and new friends very easily.

Notes: Firstly I’m sorry this is out later than planned, I’ve been teasing this piece for way too long. Secondly I stuggled a bit getting into Jughead’s POV style. I think this just gives me an excuse to rewatch the season again and pick up on his narration style. Finally if you have any suggestions on where you think this should go let me know, I have the next 2 parts planned but I am intrigued to see where you think it will go. Collabing is my fave! Anyway, enjoy.
Southside High was
certainly rough around the edges. Riverdale was a beauty in comparison.
The metal detectors
were new to me, I’d never been searched to go to class before. It was a sign of
the times, I guess. Just another new thing to get used to. I headed to my
locker, headphones on and eyes to the ground. I was still the new kid after
all. I took out my math textbook and a copy of ‘Of Mice And Men’ for English,
luckily I’d read it at Riverdale so I wouldn’t be unprepared. I checked my
phone, killing time before first period. Betty had already text me twice,
despite us being on the phone only twenty minutes before.
Betty: Riverdale feels weird without you Jug. I miss you :(
Betty: I can’t wait to see you again. Friday can’t come
quick enough xx
Me: I miss you too Bets. Being the new kid is strange.
Friday is going to get me through though. Can’t wait to see you x x
At Riverdale, I may
have been the outcast but I had Betty Cooper by side. Betty was the strongest
person I had ever known, I knew if anyone could handle this distance it was
her. I had moved here to keep her safe, I just hoped she wouldn’t get herself
into trouble. Considering the current state of affairs that was the town of
Riverdale however, trouble could be anywhere we turned.
