Next morning Veronica in her room she grab her bag then goes to the living room Veronica : Don't show yourself to my parents OK. Tim : Don't worry I won't, where are you going anyway, are you going to school?
Veronica : Whatever I am going it's none of your business. You want me to hide you here, and that's what I am doing; but where I am going its none of your business! No I am not going to school today; with what happened yesterday with Archie, and Betty I can't see them, and I don't have the energy to argue with them. Don't open the door to anyone, and don't answer the phone, and don't show yourself to my parents OK, and here is my number if you need anything.
Don't open the door to anyone, and don't answer the phone, and don't show yourself to my parents OK, and here is my number if you need anything. Then she gives him her number. Veronica : I am leaving bye, and remember what I told you. Then Veronica leaves the house.
Then she arrives at pops - Jughead was waiting for Betty at her locker. His look of concern deepened at the sight of her worried look on her face. He moved so he was standing in front of her.
Jughead: Hey. (He wanted to wrap his arms around his girlfriend. But Betty was putting off 'Don't touch me' signs. He hated it but he listened to her inner self). How are you doing? (He didn't have to ask her anything about what the rumor mill was talking about among the halls. He fully knew that he fully knew about Archie and Veronica's break up all ready).
Betty: (Softly) I feel like I am losing my best friend Juggie. (Her eyes lifted to meet those of the taller brunette; whom has truly surprised her by winning over her heart and soul). I know that I haven't. I mean Archie is angry and hurt over his breakup with Ronnie. But Ronnie feels like I all ready made up my mind; and heart to support only Archie ... so she's not allowing me to talk to her right now.
and heart to support only Archie ... so she's not allowing me to talk to her right now. Jughead: (Stiffening up) That's her issue. (He couldn't keep the growl from his throat). Betty: Juggie.
Jughead: Look Betty; I'm not saying that your friendship with Veronica is over. (His lips thinned) I know that this is typical high school teenage drama. Once Veronica feels that she got her share of dramatic trough ... then she'll realize that you can be there for both Archie and her. (Shaking his head) I just hate how she is playing you is all. Betty: She's not playing me Jughead Jones! (Her eyes narrowed as she glared into her boyfriend's stubborn eyes). She's hurt. She isn't used to having true, and honest friends in her life.
Betty: She's not playing me Jughead Jones! (Her eyes narrowed as she glared into her boyfriend's stubborn eyes). She's hurt. She isn't used to having true, and honest friends in her life. Jughead shook his head. He doesn't buy it. Betty: Juggie. (She whimpered) I can't lose Veronica. I just can't. (Unshed tears were sparkling her eyes).
Betty: Juggie. (She whimpered) I can't lose Veronica. I just can't. (Unshed tears were sparkling her eyes). Jughead: (Sighing) You aren't going to lose her Betty. (He knew deep down that Betty and Veronica were honest to God fated to be best friends. He didn't have to like it ... or understand it ... but he could accept it.)
Betty: (She stopped forward and wrapped her arms around his thin waist. Resting her head against his heart). I hate this. (She whispered). Lowering his head to kiss the top of the blonde hair of his girlfriend. Jughead silently wrapped his arms around Betty; and simply held her in his arms.
In the gym Archie was swinging his arms wide in a stretch. Cheryl: I had fun last night Archie. (She smirked). Archie: (Winking) I did too. We def have to do that again. (Images of the previous night in Cheryl's arms raced through his brain) Seriously I didn't know what I was missing.
Cheryl: You are good red stallion. (She moved closer against Archie; slinking her right arm tightly around his neck; pulling him tighter against her. She licked her lips as she brought her lips to lay an inch from his own) I always knew that you would be good in bed; Archie Andrews. I'm glad that you allowed me to ride you. (She breathed as her lips met his in a deep and hungry kiss).
Archie: Locker room. (He breathed out as they pulled away finally). Cheryl: Lead the way Stallion. (She allowed him to pull him into the locker room. She made sure that the door was locked. After all she wasn't planned on being caught or interrupted. She smirked as she realized that she had much to gloat over not only with Veronica; but her dear cousin Betty).
She smirked as she realized that she had much to gloat over not only with Veronica; but her dear cousin Betty). Soon the showers area was filled with steam, and the sounds of teenagers moaning together were coming out to the changing area. At pops Veronica is sitting and just staring at something random then she calls Hermione.
At pops Veronica is sitting and just staring at something random then she calls Hermione. Hermione : Hello. Veronica: I just needed to talk to you, I don't know what to do, dad is ruining everything. Hermione : It's OK everything is going to be ok.
Then Hermione, and Veronica continue talking; then Veronica goes to her club. She looks around no one is at the club, so she starts to break down crying. Veronica calls Reggie while still at her club she said:
Veronica : I feel like everyone is attacking me because of me breaking up with Archie, everyone is so concern about how Archie is feeling and how Archie is hurt about the breaking but what about me, am hurting to, they act like this don't affect me like am not hurting, but I am, am also hurting about the break up, I just feel like you are the only person that care about how am I feeling, thank you for that, everyone is so concern about Archie but what about me no one cares how am feeling except for you, everyone hates me because of the break up but no one understands why I did it, why I had to break up with him.
I just feel like you are the only person that care about how am I feeling, thank you for that, everyone is so concern about Archie but what about me no one cares how am feeling except for you, everyone hates me because of the break up but no one understands why I did it, why I had to break up with him.
The bell ranged for lunch and the halls filled with hungry students. Archie couldn't keep the smirk from his lips at what had transpired between him and Cheryl that morning in the locker room showers. He had even better memories of that area then ever before in his entire high school career.
Jughead: What are you smirking about? Aren't you heartbroken? Archie: (Rolling his eyes) You mean over Veronica? Naw. She doesn't want me any longer; that's fine. There are plenty of girls whom do want me.
Jughead: (Stiffening up) Betty is with me now Archie! (He stepped closer to his best friend; pushing the red headed teen against one of the lockers). Archie: (Holding his hands up) I told Betty the truth at homecoming; Jughead. I don't see her in a romantic way. (Shaking his head) I truly don't ever think I would. Betty is my best friend; I honesty see her as my sister. (He felt Jughead begin to loosen up). I'm happy that you and her found one another Jug.
truly don't ever think I would. Betty is my best friend; I honesty see her as my sister. (He felt Jughead begin to loosen up). I'm happy that you and her found one another Jug. Jughead: Okay. (He nodded as he backed away). What did you do Archie? (He looked hard into his best friend's eyes).
Archie: I'm a free agent now; Jughead. I'm not dating anyone. (His smirk return) What I choose to do; and whom I choose to do it with is really none of your business. - The door to the Blue and Gold office opened up. Cheryl smirked at the sight of Betty working at a desk. She walked in not bothering with closing the door.
Cheryl: Hello Cousin dear. Betty: (Stiffened). What do you want Cheryl? Cheryl: Have you seen Veronica? I just wanted to share that she's not the only one whom can get a rise out of Archie Andrews; (Leaning her hip against a desk near Betty's) know what I mean? (Her smirk widen at the angry pink rising on Betty's cheeks). Oh wait no you don't know what I mean. At least not with Archie Andrews you don't; and you never will hmm cousin?
Betty: Get out of here Cheryl. I can't deal with you right now. (Her eyes didn't leave the paper that she was currently editing). Cheryl: If you happen to run into Veronica before I do ... let her know hmm? (Laughing she walked towards the hallway of the high school; leaving the door open).
Inside Betty's right hand clenched the paper in her hand; until is was wrinkled into a semi ball. Veronica is still in her club. She is walking around, and thinking. Then Tim calls; so Veronica takes a deep breath then pick up the phone.
Veronica : What do you want? Tim : Is that any way to speak to your friend? Veronica : We're not friends, you just are forcing me to hide you. Tim : I need you to pick up something for me
Veronica : No I am not picking up anything for you. I am not your assistant, and it is not my problem that you commited a crime, and is hiding from the police! Tim : In case I have not made myself clear, you will pick up something for me when you come back home; because if you don't I will tell your friends our little secret.
Veronica : I can easily rat you out to the police. Tim : You can't do that because if you do we both go down; because you are helping me with hiding me! Veronica : OK I will pick up something for you, and leave my friends alone got it!
Then Veronica close the phone and take a deep breath. At Hiram office Hermione : You need to fix this right now, Veronica is right; what you are doing is dangerous, and wrong. You need to stop this right now!
Hiram : Look who you're speaking to, I am going to do what I want! Why should I listen to you! Hermione: Because if you don't listen to me; you will lose Veronica, and maybe me.
Hiram : I am not going to lose both of you; because no matter what I do Veronica still loves me, and I am not going to lose you because you can't live without me! Then Hermione and Hiram continue talking. At school Reggie is walking a little fast then he comes up to Archie. Reggie : What is wrong with you!
Reggie : What is wrong with you! Archie : Excuse me ? Reggie : I said what is wrong with you, how could you be so cruel to her and act this way? Archie : I have no idea what you are talking about.
Reggie : I am I talking about Veronica, how could you be so cruel to her, you have no shame! Then Reggie and Archie just argue then Archie insults Veronica; so when Reggie is about to punch Archie; when Betty rushes to stop them. Betty : Hey, break it up! This is not the time or place!
Reggie : This is not over! Archie : Yes it is. Then Reggie leaves. Betty turned to look fully at Archie. Betty: What's has gotten into you Archie? (Concern, and deep raw hurt in her eyes). Archie shrugged as he folded is arms across his chest.
Archie shrugged as he folded is arms across his chest. Betty: You JUST broke up with Veronica yesterday; and today you are fooling around with Cheryl.
Archie: We did more then just simply fool around Betty. (He smirked) Last night also. We had a repeat performance in the locker room this morning. Betty: Archie!
Archie: Look Betty; I'm a free agent now. I'm not dating anyone. So I can be with whomever I damn well please. Veronica is the one whom broke up with me! She is the one whom decided that she was done with me! She is the one whom decided that I'm not good enough for her! (Anger, and deep hurt in his eyes) I say fine then. I don't need her in my life any more. She wasn't even all that great between the sheets.
I don't need her in my life any more. She wasn't even all that great between the sheets. SMACK! Archie: I can't believe that you slapped me! (His right hand rose to cover the palm print on his right cheek. His eyes widen then narrowed at Betty's angry face).
Betty: The Archie Andrews that I know would never ever speak this way. (She breathed heavy). The Archie Andrews that I know would never ever act like this. Archie: (Stepping close) Perhaps you don't know me as well as you thought you did. After all Betty; this isn't the first time that you got something terrible wrong concerning me is it?
this isn't the first time that you got something terrible wrong concerning me is it? Betty's breath caught in her chest. Reggie: (Pushing Archie away from Betty). What is your problem man! Archie: (Growling) Don't you lay a hand on me Mantle.
Reggie: How dare you treat Betty like this. (He moved closer to Betty in order to protect her). Archie: I'm not treating Betty in any way. (His right hand waved). Reggie: What do you call stepping into her personal space, and threatening her?!
Betty: He wasn't threatening me Reggie. We are just upset with one another is all. Archie: (Eyes wide in surprise) I didn't cause you to think I was threatening you did I Betty? (Looking over Reggie's right shoulder into Betty's hurt eyes). I'm sorry if I did Betty. (He spoke in a low tone).
Betty: (Meeting Archie's eyes) You didn't make me feel threaten Arch. You just pointed something painful out to me is all. Archie thought back to the last thing he said to Betty. His heart hurt at what he had applied to her. Shaking his head.
Archie: Look Betty; I'm not in the right temper to truly make amends to what I said to you. I truly didn't mean it. I said it in rash anger. (Breathing deeply) I promise that I will never ever even go there ever again even when we are angry at one another. (Shaking his head) I'm just going to hurt you more if I remain here. I'm truly sorry. (He turned and walked away).
Reggie's eyes narrowed as he watched the red headed teen walk down the hallway. He managed to soften his gaze as he turned around to face the blonde. Reggie: I'm sorry that Archie's horrible mood got you in it's cross fire Betts.
Betty: (Sighing) It happens. Reggie: It shouldn't through. I mean Archie knows better. Betty: No offense Reggie; but I don't want to talk about this with you. Reggie: I understand. Don't worry I won't bring it up unless you want me to.
Betty: Thanks Reg. Reggie: I heard through the grapevine about Archie and Cheryl. Betty: (Sighing deeply) I am sure that Cheryl had a field day starting that one. She had the honor of telling me in the Blue and Gold office. (Her hands were slightly shaking as they crossed across her chest). I just don't know how to tell Ronnie.
shaking as they crossed across her chest). I just don't know how to tell Ronnie. Reggie: It's not your job to tell Veronica. Betty: I'm her best friend. We promised to tell one another the truth no matter how painful of the matter is. Especially where it concerns Archie.
Reggie: She would understand if you don't tell her. Betty: If she would just talk to me ... (She broke off as she realized that she may not be the one to tell Veronica if she wouldn't talk to her). Reggie stepped closer.
Reggie: Look Betts; I'm talking to Veronica. I can let her know about Archie and Cheryl. I'll tell her that you planned on telling her yourself; but with her not ready to talk to you right now; that I needed to be the one to tell her. I'll also tell her that Cheryl took great pleasure in finding you to tell you to your face.
Betty: I hate to put this one you Reg. But it's better Veronica hears about it from a friend; and not from the grape vine. Or worse from Cheryl herself. Reggie swung right arm across Betty's thin waist; and started to walk down the hallway with her.
Reggie: Don't lose hope; Betty. Veronica will truly realize that you are her true friend. That you can truly be there for all your friends whenever more then one of them are in trouble; and need you to lean on. (He gently squeezed her hip). You know Veronica is still too new at having true honest friends that she can truly count on.
Betty rested her head against her friend's shoulder. Later in the afternoon Veronica arrive home; then goes to her room, and just gets on her laptop; then later Reggie calls. Veronica : Hello. Reggie : Hi Veronica, how are you?
Veronica : I am doing better thank you; but mind telling me why you called. Reggie : There is something I need to tell you that you are not going to like, don't freak out OK. Veronica : If you have to tell me something just say it, I can handle whatever you need to tell me.
Reggie : Archie is sleeping with Cheryl. Veronica : Wait what ? Archie and Cheryl ? Well he definitely did not waste anytime, I guess I should not be surprised, he clearly does not care about how I feel; so why should I. You know what? I don't care what he does, why should I, I am not with him anymore, he is free to do what he wants. Thanks for letting me know I really do appreciate it.
he is free to do what he wants. Thanks for letting me know I really do appreciate it. Reggie : Well you took the news well, it's great that you are being strong. Veronica : nothing surprise me anymore.
Reggie : Maybe he is hurting because of the breakup, maybe that's why he is acting this way. Veronica : Does he look like he is hurting? He is not hurting, he is having the time of his life.
Reggie : Betty also hates what Archie is doing, she cares about you, she hates what he is doing to you. Veronica : Look when it comes to between me, and Archie she will always pick Archie! I can kinda understand, she has known him since childhood.
Reggie : She still cares about you, she hates what Archie is doing, and she is on your side. (Sighing) Betty knows how to be on several sides all at once. She's had a lot practice; not only growing up with an older brother; and sister. But with her parents. Heck through the years she had to play ping pong between Archie and Jughead whenever those two were on the outs.
All I am saying Ronnie; is that you can trust and count on Betty Cooper being solidly on your side; and still be able to be on Archie's side. She's not going to end her friendship and closeness with you for anyone. Not even for Archie Andrews.
Veronica: (Sighing) I'm just not used to having people whom don't want to truly use me for my money; and power. Not to be around me for what I can do for them; instead of them just wanting me as me. (Shaking her head as her hand shook around her phone) I don't know Reg. I just don't know.
Reggie: (Gently) Don't give up on Betty. Don't give up on yourself Ronnie. You deserve to have a full like just like everyone else. You deserve to have people whom can count on no matter what. That no matter how much you agrue and disagree with ... at the end of the day; you know that they won't disappear on you just because you can't live your life as they deem you should. After all you don't expect Betty to live her life the way you deem that she should do you?
you can't live your life as they deem you should. After all you don't expect Betty to live her life the way you deem that she should do you? Veronica: Of course not! Reggie: Betty holds the same values. (Sighing) All I am saying Veronica is don't give up on a true and ever lasting friendship without seriously sitting down; and having a long and serious heart to heart with her. I mean you both deserve that much.
without seriously sitting down; and having a long and serious heart to heart with her. I mean you both deserve that much. Veronica: (Tearing up) What if Betty says that she doesn't want me any longer.
Reggie: (Softly and loving) She won't. Trust in your friendship. Trust in your deep bond. Trust in your faith in fate having destined you and Betty being the best of all friends. Veronica lowered her phone without replying. She didn't realize that she hit end. She just stared at the wall across from her bed with tears rolling down her cheeks.
Than later Tim comes to Veronica room, Tim : Do you need help with anything? Veronica : No,now leave me alone! Tim : Tell me what's wrong.
Veronica : Fine, well me, and Betty have always been close, we are like sisters. When I came to town her, and Archie were the first friends I had. Then last year Betty did something that hurt me the most. Last year when I went to my family cabin with Betty, Archie, and Jughead, it was either Betty or Archie that got a call then Betty, and Jughead just started blaming me for my father crimes.
then Betty, and Jughead just started blaming me for my father crimes. They said that I only brought them to the cabin so my father could do business, and they kept yelling at me, and blaming me when I had and still have nothing to do with my father crimes. Betty acted like I was teaming up with my father, and doing shady things; but I still forgave her, and let it go. The reason why I brought them to the cabin was because I just
The reason why I brought them to the cabin was because I just wanted to go on a trip with them, it was not because I was teaming up with my father. Betty and I; we had our best, and worst moments; but I don't know if I can forgive her for that. I do still care about her, she is like a sister to me, she is important to me , we always been really close.
Then Hermione comes home Veronica : My mom is home hide in the closet now, so she won't see you. Then Tim hides in the closet. At Pop's Reggie: (Slidding into the booth across from the blonde) Thanks for meeting me here.
Betty: (Sighing) I needed to get out of my house. (Her hands were clenched at her sides. Her finger nails pressed into her palms.)
Reggie: Sorry to hear that. Anything you care to talk about? (He hadn't missed the tightness of Betty's facial plain; and he knew that her hands were hidden because she didn't want him to see her clenching her fists so tightly that blood could ooze out). I'm here for you Betty. (He leaned forward.) Betty: (Shaking her head). No offense Reggie. But I can't talk to you about this. (Whispering) I can't talk to anyone about this expect for Polly and Ronnie. (Her breath hitched at Ronnie's name).
Betty: (Shaking her head). No offense Reggie. But I can't talk to you about this. (Whispering) I can't talk to anyone about this expect for Polly and Ronnie. (Her breath hitched at Ronnie's name).
Reggie: (His concern deepened. He hadn't missed the whisper from the blonde. The whisper that he shouldn't have heard ... but yet he heard it clear as day). I talked with Veronica. I let her know abotu Archie and Cheryl. (He knew if he didn't tell the blonde why he asked her here and soon; then she may walk away). She took it suprising well. She was not surprise by it.
Betty: (A wary smile on her lips) Ronnie understands Archie more then I do. She has always known Archie's true character then I ever did. (Her fingers pressed harder against her palm). I still see Archie Andrews as that innocent two year old child. (Taking a deep breath) Even after learning that Archie lost his viriginty with that fake Grundy ... I still saw him as that innocent two year old. That that woman just took advantage of Archie's open and honest heart; and she used her powers to get him to sleep with her. (Anger lacing her voice) but not with Cheryl. Archie fully knows what he was doing when he bedded Cheryl Blossom. He knew whom he was hurting when he ... (Her voice broke off).
still saw him as that innocent two year old. That that woman just took advantage of Archie's open and honest heart; and she used her powers to get him to sleep with her. (Anger lacing her voice) but not with Cheryl. Archie fully knows what he was doing when he bedded Cheryl Blossom. He knew whom he was hurting when he ... (Her voice broke off).
Reggie: You know that I'm not Archie's number one fan; Betty. But he still is a decent guy. (Shaking his head). He's running on a broken heart. Betty: Like that should be an excuess to run off, and get a STD! (Her fists felt like grantie).
Reggie: (Looking around the almost empty diner. He could tell that curious eyes were locked on them). Betty I don't think this is a conversion for Pop's. (He had lowered his voice.) Betty: (Growling) I don't care if people over hear. (Her body was stiff in anger).
Reggie: (Backed up against the back of the booth; with his hands in the air against his chest). Okay. Jughead: What's going on here? (He locked heated eyes onto Reggie's. His body straight and stiff at the end of the table).
Reggie: We were just talking. Betty: Reggie and I are just talking; Jughead. It's fine. (Her voice was still stiff. She looked away from Reggie and up into her boyfriend's hard eyes). Jughead: (Sliding into the booth next to Betty; and wrapping his left arm around her thin waist.) What are you two talking about? (He still held anger in his eyes over at Reggie).
Jughead: (Sliding into the booth next to Betty; and wrapping his left arm around her thin waist.) What are you two talking about? (He still held anger in his eyes over at Reggie). Reggie: I had to tell Veronica that Archie is sleeping with Cheryl. Betty wanted too. But with Veronica still not talking to her; I had to do it.
Jughead: (Softening) Sorry Reggie. (He turned to kiss his girlfriend on the side of her head. He grew worried as he noticed that her fists were still like granite at her side; and one of them against his thigh). Betty: I can't believe Archie would do this!
Jughead: (He fully knew that this was solely Archie's fault; and that Veronica wasn't part of it. His temper rose towards his ginger haired best friend. He would be having harsh words with that boy next time he sees him). I'm sorry that Archie is ...
Betty: Don't you even dare finish that sentence Jughead Jones! (Her hard fiery blue green eyes turned to glare into her boyfriend's eyes). Don't you dare! Jughead: I won't. Reggie: I told Veroncia that you are on her side; Betty, and that you hate what Archie is doing to her. She's still having too hard of time trusting that.
Reggie: I told Veroncia that you are on her side; Betty, and that you hate what Archie is doing to her. She's still having too hard of time trusting that. Betty's body slumped at the news. Jughead just pulled her into him; so he could comfort her. He kissed the side of her face once more.
Betty: (Softly) Thanks for letting her know that I am on her side. I appreciate that you told her. Jughead: She's going to talk to you again Betts. (He softly spoke in her ear). Veronica Lodge can not stay away from you even if the earth was burning up. (He gently squeezed her shoulder) She'll talk to you soon.
Betty: I wish you were right. (A lone tear rolled down her right cheek). Reggie silently looked at his broken blonde friend. He promised himself to try harder to reason with Veronica; and get Ronnie to reach out to Betty once more.
Then Veronica goes out of her room. Veronica : Hey mom what are you doing here? Hermione : I finish work early. Am I not supposed to come to my own house?
Veronica : I did not say that , of course you can come to your own house , so glad your home. Hermione : Your acting weird is everything ok? Veronica : Yes everything is fine why wouldn't it be?
Hermione : I heard what happened with Archie , I am so sorry Ronnie are you ok? Break ups are never easy , you could of told me about the break up. Veronica : How could I tell you when you are busy with work, and I did not know if I could've trusted you with this; because I did not know if you are just going to tell Dad about this, and we all know what he will do if he knew about the break up plus you were busy dealing with work.
and we all know what he will do if he knew about the break up plus you were busy dealing with work. Hermione : Still you could have told me. Archie is probably a wreck over this.
Veronica : ( Laughs) Don't worry about him mom. He is not a wreck; in fact he is not even thinking about me, and the break up. He is having the time of his life! He is busy sleeping with Cheryl Blossom. He is so happy; he could care less about me, and about how I am feeling! Cheryl is more then happy to gloat to everyone about her, and Archie; but this doesn't surprise me; knowing who Cheryl is, and mom don't use your power to try to ruin Cheryl, and her family. Don't do anything stupid ok? Please. I don't need you defending me. I can take care of myself.
but this doesn't surprise me; knowing who Cheryl is, and mom don't use your power to try to ruin Cheryl, and her family. Don't do anything stupid ok? Please. I don't need you defending me. I can take care of myself. Hermione : Fine I won't use my Mayer power to try to ruin Cheryl, and her family. Cheryl is like her mom; both don't care about other people but themselves. They don't care who they hurt. As long as they are happy.
Hermione : Fine I won't use my Mayer power to try to ruin Cheryl, and her family. Cheryl is like her mom; both don't care about other people but themselves. They don't care who they hurt. As long as they are happy. Veronica : I have other things to do, and worry about to keep me occupied. I don't care about what Archie is doing; he clearly doesn't care about my feeling. So why should I care what he do?
Veronica : I have other things to do, and worry about to keep me occupied. I don't care about what Archie is doing; he clearly doesn't care about my feeling. So why should I care what he do? Hermione : It's good that you are being strong, and focusing on other things. Good for you. So who told you about Archie and Cheryl?
Veronica : Reggie told me today; not that long ago in fact before you came home about Cheryl, and Archie. I have to be strong because he is not worth losing my mind over; like you always said family always comes first.
Hermione : That's right family always comes first. Don't you forget that. I am glad you have Reggie. Lately you are always by yourself, and it's nice of him to tell you about this , I just hate what Archie is doing to you. At least I know whenever you are on the outs with Betty; you can still have Reggie in your corner.
Veronica : What can you do? No mom; please I am begging you don't try to use your power to ruin Archie. Please mom don't. I don't need you to fight my battles for me. Hermione : Ok I won't. Are you sure you're fine; because you don't look ok. Talk to me. What's going on?
Veronica : I am fine mom. There is nothing to worry about; but thanks for worrying about me. Only you, and Reggie actually care about how I am feeling while everybody else is worried about how Archie feeling. They act like this doesn't affect me. They act like I don't matter.
Hermione : What about Betty? She cares about you. You and her are like sisters. You two are close what about her? Veronica : Betty only cares about what Archie is feeling; she does not care about how I feel. She is on Archie side, and I understand because she have known him longer then me. She had known him since childhood; so I understood why she will always be on his side.
Veronica : Betty only cares about what Archie is feeling; she does not care about how I feel. She is on Archie side, and I understand because she have known him longer then me. She had known him since childhood; so I understood why she will always be on his side.
Hermione : I am sure that's not true. Did you ask her if she is on Archie side? No you did not. You just assumed, and I understand why you might think that; because like you said Betty has known Archie way longer then you; so you feel like she is always on his side.
Veronica : Trust me mom; I know Betty better then you do. She is definitely on Archie side. I also sometimes feel left out when they talk about there childhood memories, and there memories of before I came to town. I feel left out like I am just a shadow, and after what happened at the cabin; I am not sure if she is going to
accuse me of working with my father; because last year she kept blaming me for my father crimes, and she literally accused me of working with my father. Which I will never do! You know that mom. So I don't know if she will accuse me of working with my father again. What if one day we argue
and the subject of dad comes up, and what if she just suddenly accuses me again for working with dad, and blame me again for dad crimes?! You know what? I am going to my room now. I don't want to talk about this anymore.
Then Veronica goes to her room. Veronica pulls Tim out of the closet. Tim : What took so long? Veronica : Sorry that took longer than expected, My mom and I just end up talking longer.
Hermione : (Knocks on Veronica's door) Who are you talking to? Veronica : No one that's just Reggie. Hermione : I heard a men voice in your room. Veronica : That's just because I have my phone on speaker, and you are hearing Reggie voice
