Legitimately mad at myself for thinking Jughead’s mom would love him and comfort him and actually want tobe there for him like what is wrong with me of course she’d be a huge disappointment everything else in Jughead’s life is

*This story isn’t new just decided to post it.
From The Beginning of the End, Betty and Veronica #272 (2014).
A little context: Betty and Veronica are off abroad for a student-exchange program and Jughead is having trouble coping with the fact that he has to spend an entire year in Riverdale without his dear Betty.
That rushed “bye” Jughead says before putting the receiver back quickly is heartbreaking. He’s crumbling apart; his dad (in his eyes, at that time) was a murderer, his mom had basically told him that he wasn’t welcome wherever she and Jellybean were, and the rushed “bye” is the culmination of all of Jughead’s hopelessness, disappointment, insecurity, lonliness and betrayal. “Forget I said anything,” he says, and he doesn’t want to bare that part of him to his mom, despite the fact that she isn’t anywhere close to being a good mother. So, instead, he takes a gulp of air, clenches his eyes shut and tries to keep it all in.
I’m not crying, you are.
