The sun shone brightly in the sky bathing Robin in its warm glow. She closed her book and watched the others playing. Usopp and Chopper were making an enormous sand fortress complete with a moat. The look of pure happiness on their faces made her smile. She leaned back and closed her eyes. The sounds of her nakama combined with the soothing warmth soon had her drifting off to sleep.

Robin awoke sometime later when a shadow came over her blocking out the sun. She opened her eyes to see a strong muscular chest with a long scar running diagonally from shoulder to hip. Zoro looked down at her his green hair damp from the ocean. All he wore was a pair of dark green swimming trunks, his muscles fully on display she noticed. Robin looked up at him and he offered her a small smile.

"You look like you could use a dip"

"I wish I could, it looks like you guys are having fun."

"Come" he said offering her his hand.

She raised her eyebrow inquisitively. Zoro knew that as a consequence of eating the Hana Hana fruit she couldn't swim. He continued to hold out his hand anyways.

"Trust me"

She did so she took his hand and stood up, he looked down at the purple sarong she had tied loosely around her waist and suggested she take it off. She complied and then he led her towards the ocean. They walked in together hand in hand. Once they were up to her knees Zoro scooped her up bridal style and waded in further. He moved her around so that her back was against his chest his strong arms encircling her so she wouldn't slip. The feeling was incredible. She had dreamed before of swimming in the ocean but of course hadn't been able to.

"We won't stay long so it shouldn't drain you too much"

It wasn't until Zoro pointed it out that Robin realized her energy was waning. Normally this would freak her out but she felt safe in Zoro's arms. She leaned her head back and soaked in the feel of the water curling around her.

They stayed a bit longer Robin safe in Zoro's secure embrace. Robin was just about to ask to go in when Zoro stood up, scooping her up as he did and headed towards the shore. Feeling drained she rested her head on his shoulder. She pressed a kiss into his neck.

"Thank you Zoro" she whispered.

He smiled at her and laid her down beside him on the beach. With her head on his shoulder they fell asleep.
