When Veronica realizes just what that stupid kiss has done to her budding friendship with Betty, she honestly isn't sure why she's so immediately panicked--but it's enough that she is. She's only known the blonde for a few days, but somehow she already can't bear the thought of losing her.
It's not like Veronica thinks she'll be alone without Betty; Veronica's rich, Veronica's hot, and Veronica's got enough personality to pull nearly any follower-type into her sway. But she doesn't want a follower; she wants a friend.
She wants Betty.
And she's not about to let their friendship die.
