Only one week after their late night talk at Pop’s and Jughead had been nothing short of a gentleman. After driving them back home to her apartment, he’d offered her and Rose each a kiss on their cheeks. Had the little girl not been passed out in her mother’s arm, she would have been positively delighted. Sweet text messages, sneaky smiles at work, and a few coloring books set aside in his office “just in case” and she was already smitten. Betty had never known a man as good as him before, but the fear he’d turn around and run still perverted her mind and swallowed her hopeful attitude whole.
“Betty! I need you to focus on helping Andrews with the lights, not on our bosses’ ass,” Josie hollered, shooting her a look so deadly, Betty felt like she had momentarily become six years old again, and was caught sneaking frogs back into the classroom because she’d made friends with them on the playground.
Her cheeks flushed and she stuttered to defend herself, “No I wasn’t! Rosie was-and I just-I was…”
“To be fair, it is a very nice ass,” Kevin offered.
From behind the bar, Jughead shouted, “Thanks Kevin!”
