Proper motivation


“Can we stop?”

Becker and Matt turned to Jess.

“You said you wanted to come with us.”

Jess sighed. “But I’m tired.”

She had asked to go running with them, her job involving so much sitting down that she wanted to start exercising more. Now, however, she was regretting it.

“Just a little bit further,” Becker cajoled, but Matt reached into his pocket, taking out a bar of Dairymilk.

“I didn’t want to resort to this but, reach five miles and you can have the chocolate. Deal?”

Reluctantly, Jess jogged to catch them up.

“You’re evil.”

Matt smiled. “I know.”

Lol and aww. Jess should probably have started with something a little gentler than running with two ex-military blokes. Good incentive, though!

Poor Jess really didn't think it through- although they did bring her chcolate.

LOL, that's cute! Poor Jess - she probably has to take 2 steps to Becker's one as well.

Maybe they'll go slow for her.

Thanks!

I think I'd jog with them even without the Dairy milk!

I think that for me, just chasing Becker and Matt would be motivation enough *g*

Thanks!

Very cute! but, what is Dairymilk? I'm a Yank and that's not something I've heard of except for on here. Anyway, good job. Jess will think twice before going running with those two again! but she's a trooper . .for the right price. lol

Dairymilk is the name of bars of milk chocolate from Cadbury's.

Thanks! Poor Jess- she should probably have asked Abby to jog with her instead.

Matt knows her too well...

Jess is probably thinking "why did we help someone who admits he's evil?"

seriously, excellent drabble.

LOL! That's great thinking, Matt! Jess probably should have started with something a bit easier... though maybe she just wanted to spend some time with hot sweaty boys. :)

I think hot, sweaty Matt and Becker would be a good enough motivation.

LOL!

Oh Matt is so eeeeeevil! Poor Jess!

Though I would gladly love it if Matt and Becker were my personal trainers! I'd go jogging and work out with them any day!

You so brightened my morning up! Thanks Ebs!

I think I'd happily run after them if they were my personal trainers too!

Thank you!
