Love all of your stories! Could you do one where Archie and Betty are dating but Archie isn't treating her very well so Jughead gets all involved or something
I don’t want the Archie fans to get mad at me so this is totally AU!
“I’m fine Kevin, just..leave it.” Betty whispered, her eyes downcast as she tugged her light blue cardigan tighter around her shoulders.
“No Betty. You’re not, I see the way he talks to you, the way he makes you feel. And what about Jughead..”
“Enough.” Betty hissed out, cutting Kevin off as she winced visibly at the name.
“I’m just saying Betty, you’re in love with him.. I don’t understand why you’re still with Archie if..”
Kevin rambled, trailing off when he saw the look in Betty’s haunted green eyes.
“Just… please Kevin… leave it alone.” She wiped her sleeve under her eyes, catching her remaining tears as her best friend wrapped his arms around her shoulders, sighing heavily and pulling her into his side
“Okay. Okay I’ll leave it alone. But Betty, I’m not just gonna sit by quietly next time he yells at you like that.”
Kevin was referring to the way Archie had screamed at Betty in the hallway this morning , apparently she hadn’t got the memo that all the cheerleaders were supposed to wear their boyfriends away jersey and he had lost his mind.
“I know kev.” She whispered, her eyes fluttering.
“What’s going on?”
Betty’s eyes snapped open to see her absolute favorite boy standing before the lunch table, his fingers clenched around a brown paper bag as he stared , concerned at Betty.
“Hey juggie.” She whispered, a weak smile on her face.
“What’s going on?” He repeated, dipping his head and catching her eyes.
“It’s most definitely not nothing, your best friend is an asshole.”
Betty pulled away
“Kev..” she warned.
“Archie, what did Archie do this time?” He was coming awfully close to growling as Betty shook her head
“You know how he is. I just.. It’s not a big deal, he just yelled at me in the halls this morning.” She whispered, embarrassed as he threw his bag onto the table.
Speak of the devil, the red headed boy was currently on his way over to the lunch table, Betty’s eyes flicked up to Jughead
“Hey guys.” Archie smiled, his American boy charm had worn off a long time ago and now the sight of his smug face made Betty sick.
Jughead stood in front of Betty, his shoulders straight as he came face to face with Archie.
“What’s the matter with you?” He asked, crossing his arms as Archie stared confused
“What’s the matter with me? What are you talking about?”
“You’re ridiculous, and pathetic. Does yelling at Betty make you feel better. Making her feel like shit? That’s fun for you? I’m so sick of the way you’ve been treating her. Get over yourself Archie and look in the mirror. She’s the best of all of us and I’m tired of you making her feel like she’s not.” He glared dangerously as Archie puffed his chest.
“What you’ve got a thing for my girlfriend.. pal? She’s mine. Mind your own business and stay out of it.” He tried to push past Jughead but he shoved back with equal force, an all out fight was bubbling on the surface and the tension was so thick Betty felt light headed as she watched the two boys become more and more physical.
“Enough! Please, just stop!” She called out but it wasn’t soon enough, Archie had swung his fist directly into Jugheads face as the cafeteria went dead silent.
“Jughead!” She went to him as he leaned against the table.
At first Archie had been shocked, he had just punched his best friend, but seeing the way Betty cradled the dark haired boys face, his anger came back full force.
“What are you doing?” He yelled “I’m your boyfriend not him! Why are you on his side?”
“Because I love him!” The blonde haired teen yelled desperately, her eyes boring into Archie’s, it was too late to go back now. She walked towards Archie
“I love Jughead. He treats me right and he doesn’t need me to change, and even if he doesn’t want me like that, even if I just ruined our friendship I don’t care because it’s true.. I love him.” She whispered the last part to herself, vaguely hearing the quiet gasp from behind her, straightening her shoulders, she turned from Archie and began walking out of the cafeteria
“We’re done Archie, find someone else to push around.”
Jughead was frozen to his spot for a moment, only coming out of it when Kevin tapped him softly on the shoulder
“What are you waiting for Romeo, go get your girl.” The excited teen grinned
Jughead pushed past his classmates and finally caught up to Betty as she was slowly heading down the hall, her shoulders slumped.
“Bets!” He called, watching as she stiffened and didn’t turn around
“It’s okay Jughead, I get it. You don’t have to feel sorry for me, let’s just forget that ever happened.”
He smiled, and stood directly behind her.
“I love you Betty Cooper.”
She whipped around
He cut her off by pulling her into his body and capturing her lips with his. Home.
When they finally came up for air, He was grinning and rubbing his nose against hers.
“You love me?” He asked, a permanent smirk on his face.
Betty laughed, loud in the empty hallway
“Took you long enough to realize.”
She pulled his lips back to hers, smiling into the kiss.
