Requested by Anon: “A Betty x Reader where you’re literally the complete opposite of Betty a total laid back badass but the minute you even think Betty is upset or something’s wrong you’re the biggest puppy ever and the gang find it hilarious”
Pairing: Betty Cooper x Reader
I walked into my room, surprised that Veronica was sitting on my bed. “Eh, hey, Ronnie. What are you doing here?”
“Hey,Y/N, did you see or hear anything of Betty?”, Veronica asked worried. Her brown eyes filled with concern. “Why? What happened?” I looked into her eyes, confused because you heard nothing of her. “Well, you know we went to look for the playbook thing last night, right?” I nodded, not sure what she was about to tell me. “Yeah, erm we found out that Polly’s name was written in it. Betty was pretty shocked by it and now she doesn’t answer any of my texts or calls”
“Shit”, I breathed, feeling the anger bubbling inside of me. Trying to calm myself down I took some deep breathe. Now was not the right time to be angry, first I had to make sure that Betty’s alright. “Don’t worry. I’ll try to talk to her”, I mumbled, rubbing my temples. “What if she doesn’t want to talk to you?”, Ronnie asked with the same worried voice. “I guess, we’ll find out soon” I said, picking up my phone and texting her.
Meet me at Pop’s
“So, do you want to come with me or are you planning to stay in my bedroom?”, I laughed, trying to hide the worry I was feeling, while I grabbed my jacket.
“I’m going to sit with Jughead”, Veronica decided, making her way over to Jug’s usual booth. I didn’t really mind since I wanted to talk to Betty alone. “Wasn’t sure if you really would come”, I smiled softly, sitting across from her. Her head snapped in my direction. She swallowed and played with her fingers. “Why-why not?”, she asked, her voice not as steady as usual.
“Ronnie told me what happened”, I said unsure of how she’ll react. My eyes scanning her face, worry written over my face. Betty breathed out. “I don’t want to talk about it”, she muttered, looking everywhere but at me. “Betty, it’s okay to feel sad. It’s okay to be angry. Don’t bottle everything up. You need to let it out” I took her hand and squeezed it slightly.
“I’m just so.. Why did nobody tell me what really happened?”, she whispered. Her voice sounds hurt and disappointed. “It’s not just that no one bothered enough to tell me the truth. It makes me so angry that boys like Reggie and Jason are treating girls like that. They act like women are just objects, like women are nothing. I’m just so sick of guys thinking they can do any and everything with girls just because they’re popular”
“Yeah, I get that, believe me, I really do but please stop hiding your feelings. It won’t make anything better.” I still held her hand, not wanting to let go. “Wished I’d be more like you”, Betty mumbled, looking at the table. “What do you mean?”, I asked confused, wrinkling my eyebrows. My eyes searching for hers. “Nothing. You’re just so confident and it seems like you fear nothing. You’re so strong and I don’t know, you can handle these kind of situations a lot better than me” She sounded embarrassed, a light blush forming on her cheeks.
“Bets, don’t say such things. You’re one of the most confident and strongest person I know. You don’t need to be like me, I like you just the way you are. And believe me I don’t handle situations like these well, I just don’t show my emotions”, I winked and laughed. Betty also cracked a smile and mouthed a ‘thank you’. “So the tough and sassy Y/N isn’t as tough and sassy as she pretend to be. Interesting”, Jughead laughed. He and Veronica sat down next to us. “Oh, shut up, Jones”, I stuck my tongue out.
