Stay: Texts ( Cole X Reader)
Summary : You’ve been dating Cole for over a year now. Ever since he joined Riverdale, his producers have made it very clear that he and Lili should publicise their affections, although it meant nothing, since there were heaps of Bughead shippers. For a long time you were okay with it because you knew Cole loved you. But lately, Cole has been missing a lot of dinner dates and his PDA with Lili has been getting way out of hand. Earlier this evening you stormed off from a Riverdale party because the agents made Cole kiss Lili , on her cheeks, for the cameras. You don’t know how long you can keep doing this. You don’t want to bombard his career because you know how much acting means to him. You finally decide that the best thing for the both of you would be to call it off.
A/N : Tried something a little different here. Let me know what you guys think :)
| Text Conversation between you and Cole after abruptly leaving the party|
Cole : (Y/n), is everything okay?
Cole : (Y/n).
Cole: Talk to me, baby, Please?
(Y/n) : I think it’s time we let go.
Cole: Wtf? Let go of what?
Cole : I’m not letting you go. Wtf. (Y/n), you know I love you.
(Y/n) : It’s for our own good. I love you, C. But I don’t know if I can keep doing this anymore. I know you’re only doing what the producers want you to but you have no idea…
Cole: Babe, listen to me. I’ll talk to them. Please don’t do this. I LOVE YOU, (Y/N). PLEASE.
(Y/n) : I’m doing this because I love you. But..it’s not fair to me anymore. Goodnight.
Cole: Babe, wait.
Cole : I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for everything. I’ll make things right. I’ll talk to Lil, I’ll talk to the producers, I’ll talk to all of them. Please don’t do this, (Y/n).
Cole: Baby, please talk to me.
Cole : (Y/n)… you have no idea how much I love you.
You’re hesitant to answer the call because you don’t want him to hear you cry. Of course you don’t want to let him go, you love him. You’ve always loved him. Part of the reason you’re doing this is because you love him. Your relationship with him is the main threat for the Bughead facade.
Cole : Talk to me.
You decide to answer his call.
You don’t want to say anything to him.
“(Y/n)…” Cole trails off, his voice shaking.
“I love you so much, (Y/n). I’m sorry for everything. Please don’t let me go. Please don’t tell me this is over,”
I don’t want to, you answer in your head. Hearing him beg you stay breaks your heart even more, because you want to stay, you do, but you don’t know if you can take the lonely nights and ditched dates anymore.
You sob over the phone because you don’t know what to say. You want to leave because it isn’t fair to you but you also want to stay because you love him so much.
“No, no, (y/n), please don’t cry. I love you, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.”
“Babe?” he attempts to make you talk.
You finally decide to answer, “Uh-huh”
“I love you. Give me another chance. I promise I’ll make things right for the both of us. I’m so sorry for everything. Please say you won’t let go,”
You flashback to over a year ago when you first met Cole.
How he gathered up all his guts to ask you out.
How he drove 3hrs everyday just to see you because you lived so far..
How he held your hand and took you to your college dance.
How he spent one entire night star gazing with you because he had just coloured his hair black in courtesy of his character Jughead for Riverdale and he wasn’t too keen about it. He only became calm after you told him that you dig guys in dark hair too! “Don’t be checking out other raven-haired guys though” he jealously warned.
How excited he was when he introduced you to Dylan and his parents.
How he made you go to bed every single night wondering how you ever got so lucky to have a guy like him.
And how he made you wake up feeling loved and beautiful.
“Cole,” you whisper
“Yes, baby” his voice still shaking.
“I’m sorry I over reacted,” you quietly blurt.
“No, baby. I’m the one who should be sorry. I love you so much,”
“I love you too,”
“I’ll fix everything okay? I’ll talk to-”
“No, you don’t have to. It’s fine.”
“I want to, (y/n). I love you. I don’t ever want to lose you,”
“You won’t” you assure him.
“Like I would let you go that easily,” he lets out a small laugh.
“I’m sorry, C. I don’t know why I was-”
He cuts you off, “Baby, don’t be sorry. I love you. It’s all my fault. I love you, okay?”
You chuckle, “I love you so much, my raven-haired boyfriend”
“Phew. I just need you, (Y/n). You know that right?”
“I do, C. I love you. It’s getting late, call it a night?”
“Sure, babe. I’ll see you at 9 tomorrow, okay? I love you”
“Goodnight, C. I love you,”
Cole : You are the love of my life. You mean everything to me, (Y/n). I don’t ever want to feel like losing you ever again. Can’t wait to see you tomorrow, babe. Goodnight, princess x
This boy was worth everything.
