A/N: Double drabble.

Ryo always seems to be on one health kick or another; right now it’s nuts. Literally. He’s decided Bikky is eating way too much sugar, so candy, cookies, and cakes are being rationed, replaced in most cases by more suitable snacks, such as fresh fruit, seeds, and nuts. There’s not a single bar of chocolate or bag of potato chips in the whole apartment! Bikky knows; he checked.

Now his packed lunch is a sandwich, made with wholemeal bread, a couple of pieces of fruit, a bag of nuts or sunflower seeds, and a carton of fruit juice instead of his usual soda. It sucks.

Carol doesn’t think so though; she even seems kinda envious and after a few days she starts bringing nuts for snacks too.

“They’re so much healthier,” she insists. “Full of protein, fibre and vitamins.”

“I prefer the ones covered in chocolate,” Bikky grumbles, because he’s twelve, just a kid, and candy is what kids crave. “Nuts are for squirrels and seeds are for birds.”

“Nuts and seeds are brain food though,” Carol insists. “They make you smarter.”

“Really?” Bikky’s not sure whether he believes her or not, but… “Well, I guess they’re not so bad.”

The End



Doesn't take much to change Bikky's mind!

Thank you!
Carol always knows exactly what to say to get Bikky on track.
She's good at manipulating him, which odes well for their marriage. He'll doesn't even know for sure whether he's being manipulated ;)

Thank you!
LOL Poor Bikky!!! I hear him and agree so much on the seeds and nuts! I haven't been a kid in ages, but it seems like everything I actually like the taste of is bad for me too. In fact I've just recently been trying to figure out some kind of healthy snacks I can have, and trust me, nuts and seeds just aren't going to get it. Good luck, Bikky!!
Bikky will persevere!

I have a lot of food intolerances, but nuts and seeds are at least things I can eat, some of them anyway, just not walnuts. I like brazils, almonds and peanuts, and sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Good thing too because there are an awful lot of things I can't eat.

Thank you!
