Title: The King of Wishful Thinking
Pairing/Characters: Don/Robin
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 200
Spoilers: Season 2
Summary: After Robin leaves him Don tries to convince himself he's over her
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Don has Saturday nights free again; Fridays he stays at the office late, now that there's no one waiting for him when he comes home from work.

He remembers Robin making coffee wearing only a skimpy towel in his kitchen. Her skin, still damp from the shower, smelled faintly of strawberries as he licked spare drops from her shoulder. He would ignore her admonitions, her claims she had to get dressed, and drag her back to bed with him.

He's brought a few women home since Robin dumped him, all of them brunettes with suspiciously long hair. None of them have made it past the living room couch. Some not even out of the entryway because those are the only walls he doesn't have memories of pushing Robin up against them and burying himself in her embrace.

At first he thought it was just a fight, that Robin would return, but the weeks after showed him just how serious she was.

Now he tells himself he'll get over her. He got over Terry. He got over Kim. Well, mostly.

It's done. He's moving on. He can forget her.

When it comes to these things, he's the king of wishful thinking.

Title from the Go West song of the same name.

Poor Don, I'm sure there's still someone out there for him.
