Charlie made his way out of the war room, stretching after a long math session, and perked up at the sound of animated voices coming from a nearby conference room. It took him a moment to realize Don was inside pacing beside a table with several people sitting at it, one of them his fiancee Robin.

"Don working out a plea bargain or something?"

David chuckled, looking amused. "That? No, that's Robin and her prenup attorney going up against Don and his lawyer."

"Prenup?" Charlie blinked.

"He's marrying a lawyer!" David exclaimed, still chortling. "What? Did you think there wouldn't be paperwork?"

"There wasn't when my Mom and Dad got married," Charlie huffed.

"That was a different era," David said. "Now? This is more like corporate mergers and acquisitions!"

"A hostile takeover!" Charlie chimed in. "I've seen how much of Robin's stuff is at Don's apartment."


"So let's move on to section thirteen: disposition of shared companion animals..."

Don slumped, staring at the number of pages still left to go.

"You sure we can't just elope?" he whispered to Robin. "This stuff was boring when it was just tax law, but now it feels like we're negotiating a corporate merger."

"It is a merger," Robin shushed him quietly, "but I promise it's going to be a good one." She cocked her head to the other end of the table where the attorneys sat. "Give us another half hour and I promise tonight I'll show you a much more enjoyable version of mergers and acquisitions."

Don's wide smile lit up his face as his eyes took in her body from head to toe.

"Why Counselor, I do believe acquiring you is the best idea I've heard all day."

Robin smirked back. "Just wait for the merger – now that will be memorable."

Hee! It never occurred to me that she'd have a prenup, but then why not? She is a lawyer. Of course, at this point I'm yelling at Don, "Run! Run fast! Run far!"

Oops, maybe my anti-Robin bias is showing.

Great slice of life, though. Well done!

haha. I'm not a big Robin fan either but you make me wish you'd written them in canon. Don/Robin would have made more sense. :)

This was fun and sneakily sexy. :)
