When they were done, John handed Rodney the two pieces fruit. "Now, not at the same time, but eat these when you would normally reach for a power bar in the afternoon," John siad firmly. "And a glass of water at the same time."
John knew it was fruit Rodney liked, something like peaches in being sweet and juicy, but firmer and a bit more fibrous, which helped make it more filling. Two should get Rodney through the afternoon.
"Like I said," Rodney repeated. "The first couple of days will be easy. Then I get cranky."
"I'll keep you busy," John promised. "You won't have time to get cranky." Spending more time with Rodney was just a bonus.
"I suppose I'll have to put up with you," Rodney grinned.
"What's a better time for you to go jogging?" John asked. "Mornings or evening?"
"Mornings, I guess," Rodney offered. "Not the ungodly hour you and Ronon go running, of course."
"Of course," John repeated dryly.
"John!" Rodney whined.
Relenting, John snicker. "No, not that early," John agreed.
Rodney shot a relieved look at John.
"I'll talk to Teyla about some sessions," John offered. "We can alternate jogging and working out with Teyla. How does that sound?"
"Sounds good," Rodney agreed.
