“You know, if you eat many more of those you’re going to wind up looking like one,” Ianto said, coming into Jack’s office and finding his husband indulging in his latest craving.
“Mpf,” Jack mumbled around his mouthful and shuddered with a blissful smile before swallowing. “I can’t help it! This is what the bump demands so this is what I have to eat.”
Jack was pregnant again, but thankfully it was only going to be one baby this time. One set of twins was quite enough!
“A different craving every time,” Ianto sighed, shaking his head. “I don’t know how you do it.”
“It’s not like I get to choose,” Jack defended himself, resting sticky hands over his bump. “You’ve never been pregnant; you don’t know what it’s like.”
“True, and I can’t say I envy you. Mars bars and marmalade with Meriel, sponge cake and ice cream with the twins, and now this!”
“But at least I’m craving fruit this time; that’s much healthier, right?”
“The jury’s still out of that one.”
Ianto winced as Jack took another bite; why couldn’t he have craved apples, plums, or grapes? But no, he was feasting on lemons and raw rhubarb!
