The Start of Something New Chapter 6 (Jughead x Reader)
In which even more important questions are asked.
Listen to: “The Book of Love”, Gavin James
(Y/N) wandered the dusty shelves of the library, briefly recalling her text message conversation with Jughead earlier that day.
Jughead: Hey (Y/N). Pretty sick today so I can’t come. But I need a book for the research project in history due tomorrow. Can you check it out for me and bring it after school?
That was weird. Jughead was always at least a week ahead of the course schedule.
Y/N: Yeah sure, what’s the title?
Jughead: Mr. Andersen said the book lost its dust cover so it’s just blank and red with gold bindings. Here’s the dewey decimal number. I think you can figure it out.
Y/N: Why don’t you just ask Archie? You guys live together anyways.
Jughead: And let him into our place? No chance.
(Y/N) had grinned at that, and headed off in search of this prodigal history tome. What Jughead had asked for was deep in the stacks and took quite a while to find. The fact that it didn’t have a cover made it easy to spot among the spines with words, surprisingly.
She slid the red book with gold binding off of the shelf. Out of curiosity, she turned to the first page in an attempt to find the title.
The Start of Something New, it read in a bold font. (Y/N) became confused. This seemed more like a piece of fiction than a historical text. Maybe it was a historical narrative and Jughead was supposed to compare and contrast the story with real life? They were in different history classes and she had no idea what Mr. Andersen had assigned.
(Y/N) glanced at her phone; she had half an hour until next period. She brought the book to her and Jughead’s table, opened it, and began to read.
