Jack frowned as Ianto started to unpack the shopping.
“Bananas? Why’d you get those?” Ianto and the Fluffs didn’t like them, and Tosh was allergic, so they were seldom seen around the Hub. Anyone who enjoyed the occasional banana was expected to buy their own.
“Owen decided Janet needed more vitamins and fibre in her diet, so ever since the baked bean fiasco he’s been experimenting with various fruit and vegetables to see what she prefers. According to him, out of everything he’s tried her with she likes bananas best. Eats the whole thing, including the skin.”
“Seriously?” Jack grinned. “Weevils eating bananas; this I have to see.” Grabbing a banana, Jack set off towards the vaults, calling back over his shoulder, “Coming?”
“Why not?” Ianto popped the last few items in the cupboard and picked up the bag of bananas to put in the downstairs kitchen where the inmates’ food was prepared.
“Owen didn’t tell me she liked playing with her food first,” Ianto commented.
He and Jack stood outside Janet’s cell, watching as the Weevil poked her banana into the air holes in the Perspex, one after another.
Jack shrugged. “She’s clever! Food and entertainment, all in one.”
