Although he and Jughead had recently hit a rough patch in
their relationship, Archie Andrews considered himself one of Jughead’s closest
friends. He also liked to believe that
he knew his friend pretty well. So when
he saw (Y/N) roaming the halls wearing Jughead’s beanie, he was ecstatic. He rushed through the school to find his
friend. In the lounge, Jughead stood
with his arms crossed and raven hair exposed.
“Dude!” Archie exclaimed as he sauntered over to
“What are you talking about?” Jughead questioned, eyes narrowed.
“(Y/N), of course!” Archie answered. “You asked her out, right?” Jughead shifted and uncrossed his arms.
“No,” he scoffed, but his voice wavered a bit. “Why would you think that?”
“Because she’s wearing your beanie,” Archie stated like it
was obvious. “The last time you took
that thing off is when you proposed to her when we were six.”
“We were six,” Jughead emphasized, slightly leaning forward.
“But you like her,” Archie said. Jughead opened his mouth to reply, but no
smart remarks came out. Instead, he
closed his mouth and looked away from Archie, sighing. “Ask her out, man.” Pursing his lips, Jughead shook his head and
walked away. Archie sighed and turned
around, spotting Veronica and Betty waving at him.
“Archie!” Veronica called, beckoning him over. He moved to the couch they were sitting at
and stood in front of the two girls.
“You’ve seen (Y/N) wearing Jughead’s hat, too, right?” she
asked. Archie nodded.
“I don’t get it though,” he said. “He never takes that thing off. I asked Jughead if he asked her out, but he
said no. I figured she’d be wearing it
because of that, since last time she wore Jughead’s beanie-”
“He proposed to her,” Betty finished, and Archie
nodded. All three of them simultaneously
“God he looked so smitten
yesterday,” Veronica groaned. Archie
sent her a questioning look. “Betty and
I were at Pop’s yesterday, and we saw Jughead and (Y/N) there. She had stolen his beanie and he was trying
to get it back, but he was enjoying it.
I swear he could barely contain his smile.”
“Yeah,” Betty smiled in agreement. “They’re both
Archie, Betty, and Veronica thought that the beanie incident
was a one-time thing. However, they were
proven wrong when they spotted (Y/N) sitting in Pop’s wearing Jughead’s jacket
a week later.
“Hey, (Y/N),” Veronica greeted, sitting down next to
her. “Where’s Jughead?”
“Working at the drive-in tonight,” (Y/N) answered,
smiling. Betty and Archie slid into the
booth seat across from them.
“Is that Jughead’s jacket?” Archie bluntly asked. (Y/N) looked down at what she was wearing.
“Oh crap!” she exclaimed.
“I forgot to give this back to him!”
“I’m sure he wouldn’t mind you holding onto it for a bit,”
she laughed, causing (Y/N) to smile and nod.
“Why’d he give it to you in the first place?” Betty
inquired. (Y/N) bit her lip.
“We were walking home from school, and I had forgotten my
jacket at home. I was shivering, and Jug
insisted that I took his,” she explained.
Archie affectionately rolled his eyes, smirking.
“Smitten,” he mumbled under his breath.
The next incident was two weeks later at a football game. (Y/N) had promised her friends that she would
come to the game to support them, and she managed to drag Jughead along with her. Archie smirked when he saw them sitting
together in the stands, knowing that it probably wasn’t too hard for (Y/N) to
convince Jughead to come.
After the game, (Y/N) and Jughead got off the bleachers and
walked over to the field where Archie, Betty, and Veronica were standing.
“You guys were all great tonight!” (Y/N) complimented,
beaming at her friends. They all smiled
in gratitude, when suddenly Archie furrowed his eyebrows.
“Is that-” he paused for a moment, contemplating how to
phrase his question. “Is that a new
flannel?” Betty and Veronica shot him
confused looks, whereas Jughead and (Y/N)’s fidgeted as their cheeks grew red.
“What?” Betty and Veronica exclaimed at the same time. Archie suppressed a smirk.
“It was raining before,” (Y/N) stated, and Archie noticed
Jughead refusing to make eye contact with him, “and we got drenched because
neither of us had an umbrella. Jughead
had a dry flannel and let me wear it.”
She shrugged at the end of her explanation, playing with the sleeves of
Jughead’s flannel. Archie was tempted to
ask (Y/N) why she didn’t just change into some of her own clothes, but he
decided not to for her and Jughead’s sakes.
Betty and Veronica shared a knowing glance. Finally, Archie managed to catch Jughead’s
eye. He smirked and Jughead rolled his
eyes, but the small smile on his face didn’t go unnoticed by Archie.
Archie would have completely missed the last incident if it
wasn’t for Veronica. Some weeks later
they were sitting at lunch with (Y/N), waiting for Betty and Jughead to arrive
at their table.
“(Y/N), that sweater is really big on you,” Veronica noted,
critiquing her outfit. “Please tell me
you didn’t just buy that.” (Y/N) smiled
“No,” she responded, “I’ve had it lying in my room for a
while. Figured I should put it to use.” Veronica scrunched up her nose.
“You shouldn’t have.
Not to be rude, girl, but green is not your color.”
“Oh well,” (Y/N) laughed.
“I’ll remember that next ti-”
“That’s Jughead’s, isn’t it?” Archie interrupted. (Y/N) bit her lip and pulled the sweater
sleeves over her hands.
“Maybe,” she mumbled, looking down into her lap. Archie and Veronica smirked.
“You know what, (Y/N)?” Veronica said. “Never mind what I just said. That does
suit you.” (Y/N)’s cheeks grew bright
“Oh god, guys,” she moaned, but they could hear the smile in
her face. Jughead and Betty soon walked
over to the table and joined the group. During
their lunch, Archie would occasionally glance over at Jughead and (Y/N). He frequently saw one staring at the
other. Smiling at his friends, Archie
couldn’t fathom how neither of them realize how smitten they were with each
“So… where are you going?” “Why do you ask?” “You said you’d keep an eye on me! That’s not how you keep your eyes on me. It’s true that I feel apologetic to you, so I’ll be this much considerate. So that you can keep your eyes on me comfortably.
