The venue was exquisite – just what Robin had dreamed of as her fantasy wedding, only it was finally real.

Not content to just walk down the aisle, she'd wanted a more dramatic entrance and the grand spiral staircase in the Collier Ballroom of the Hotel de Versailles was perfect.

Bouquet held in front of her with one hand, the other slid gracefully over the mahogany banister, showing off her engagement ring and keeping her steady on her four inch heels.

And then it happened: she misstepped and in trying to right herself ended up catching her train in her heel. She went tumbling down to the bottom of the stairs – bouquet and veil flying as the guests stared at her in horror.

"Robin? You okay?"

Robin found herself sitting bolt up in bed, heart racing.

"I'm fine," she said without even thinking.

Don just sat up and pulled her into his arms, encouraging her to lean against him and relax.

"You had that dream again, didn't you?" When she didn't answer, he just pressed a tender kiss to her temple. "I don't care if they have a no return policy. Forget about those heels you bought and just buy some new shoes for the wedding. We can afford to have your gown hemmed again and besides..." he tugged her in close and she allowed him to, letting the last of the nightmare fade away. "You know how much I like you in those little kitten heels."

"I would be able to dance more," she mused.

"That's the idea!" Don encouraged. "And I promise those stilettos won't go to waste." He lowered his voice sensually. "I fully plan on enjoying you in those high heels during our honeymoon."

Robin pulled him in for a grateful kiss.

"Now that's the perfect solution."

I'm with Don. Stillettos are for making your legs look great as you get out of a car, or as you perch on the bed. They're not for walking in, especially not on ***stairs!!!!***

/pets her/ I had stress dreams before my wedding, too.

Nothing like weird stress dreams.
