Numb3rs Fic: Rumor Has It  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #458 - Rumor

Title: Rumor Has It
Pairing/Characters: Don/Robin, Don/Liz
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Seasons 2-4
Summary: The first time Liz shows up where Robin's at everybody goes quiet
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

One by one, voices fall silent, people stare.

Back and forth, eyes flit between two women: two women who haven't yet realized the other is there.

Once they cotton on to the sudden silence, they search out the reason, freezing when cold eyes meet their match.

Liz averts her gaze, partially honoring the older woman, partially in hopes of not tainting her position in the Bureau with gossip.

Too late for that.

Robin holds her head up and moves on. Rumors may swirl now, but she knows: the truth will out.

They say no woman leaves Don Eppes.

They're wrong.

Fic inspired by and title taken from from the song Rumour Has It by Adele.

Thank you,

Ooo. Frosty moment, that.

I like that ultimately Liz and Don were able to put their relationship behind them, but it can't ever be easy to be in the same room with someone he wanted more.

I love the way you write Robin, always the powerful woman. Brava!

That is definitely a frosty moment.

I admit, I like your Robin more than I like canon Robin. I always have.

Nicely done.
