Note: And finally Don's awake...

4. Color:

The next time Robin opened her eyes, the room was diffused with a warm yellow glow as the sun shone in through the windows. It was hard to imagine that she'd stood shivering in the cold dark courthouse only a few hours ago. Not wanting to leave her warm cocoon just yet, she rolled towards the right and blinked as she found Don not only awake but laying with his head propped up on one hand, watching her.

"Morning," Don said, his voice gravely with sleep.

"Good morning," Robin replied, all thoughts of sleep leaving her instantly.

"Were you gone long?"

"Huh?" Robin asked, wondering how he even knew she'd been called away at all. "Did you wake up while I was gone?"

"No," Don replied, leaning down for a kiss as his hand skimmed across her hip to her back, pulling her close. "Your clothes aren't where they were last night."

Trust an FBI agent to notice that.

"Do you need to go into work?" Don asked.

"No," Robin replied, knowing he wouldn't blame her if she did. Today it was her, tomorrow it would be him. "It's done for now."

"Good," Don stated before he rolled them over.

There we go, another drabble series done. I have to admit to being a bit surprised at the lack of responses, is the Don/Robin pairing not so popular on this site or was it the series itself?
