The middle of the summer 2012 was a good one for Robin she has been dating Nick since June and to take her mind off Barney she through herself into the relationship and into her work. Work has been going well actually, she had just gotten another promotion head new anchor. When Sandy Rivers left the station to take a new job in California they promoted her to head anchor and she of course took the opportunity she had been wanting all these year since arriving in New York. This new news anchor position called for her to do a lot more news and now that her promotion had her working late nights. She has the 5pm and 11pm shifts so since the promotion she had to cancel quite a few dates with Nick.

"I'm sorry, I have to work late." Is all she said to Nick's voice mail for a week now and Nick was getting a little impatient with this and was not happy that most of her time was working late night shifts.

Her relationship with Nick was moving quite fast for her liking. Nick had asked her to move with him after a month of dating. She said yes and moved in the next day. However, their happiness living together was short lived since she got her promotion. One night in late June, the day after she had moved in they got into a huge fight. She ran out and went to MacLaren's where she had more than one drink. Then right when she was about to leave the person she was trying to get over walked in.

"Well, why if it isn't Robin Scherbatsky the head anchor of The World News." Barney shouted smiling happy that his friend has finally become a successful news anchor.

"Hi, Barney" Robin said rolling her eyes annoyed that Barney made such a big deal about her new anchor job.

"So, it's been a while how are you Robin?" It has been over a month since they last saw each other. With Robin's promotion and new relationship and Barney spending most of his time with Quinn planning their wedding they never had any time for each other until right now.

"Um, good just been really busy." She said trying not to look directly at him cause if she did it would only bring things up that she didn't want brought up right now.

"Yeah, me too. Quinn's been going on and on about wedding plans and I just had to get out of there." Barney was getting a little annoyed with Quinn's wedding preps that it lead to a fight and he stormed out then headed to MacLaren's.

Robin didn't want to hear about Quinn and Barney's wedding plans she had enough on her mind to think about. Her job, her boyfriend who has been really angry at her lately and now Barney is standing here talking to her about his wedding to another woman. She just wanted to run out of MacLaren's and back home to apologize to Nick for being stupid and running out on him like she did. But, she didn't and that's when Barney asked her if she would like to talk over at their usual booth. She and Barney went over to the booth and sat on opposite sides of the table and had a good long talk. They talked about mostly everything from her new anchor job to their relationships but when it started to become a bit serious Robin left out something really important. Her infertility issue. She thought about telling him but decided it wasn't a good time to say this to him cause of everything that's been going on lately. So, she left it alone and finished her conversation with Barney before they left MacLaren's and went their separate ways back home.

It was a nice conversation, one that caused Robin to think about a lot of things on her way home that night. She thought about her conversation with Barney just a little while ago and she played the what if? Card over and over again in her head. Maybe, what if I did tell him then what? What if he freaks out on her? What if he comforts her? What if he tells her that he never wants to talk to her again? So many what if's played on her mind until the cab driver stopped in front of her apartment building. She payed the cab driver and took a deep breath before exiting the cab and heading inside the building. When she finally got up stairs she unlocked the door and when she got inside she found Nick sitting on the couch watching TV.

"Hi" Robin said smiling thankful that Nick was still there waiting for her.

"Hi" Nick said back turning a little to smile directly to her.

"I'm, sorry I ran out like that." She said, it was the first thing that she thought of and she was truly sorry for getting angry at him and leaving the way she did.

"No, I'm sorry for getting mad about you having found success at your job. I, was being selfish and disrespectful to you and I am really sorry I said those words to you I didn't mean them at all you know that right?" Nick really did feel bad about all the things he said earlier he really didn't mean any of it he truly didn't.

"No, I shouldn't have left like that we are a couple and we should have talked through our problem." Robin knew she was stupid, she had the same kinds of fights with many of her boyfriends but this one was a little stupid. No, a lot stupid.

"Okay, so are we okay cause I am starving." Nick said changing the subject and heading into the kitchen. Robin followed closely thinking about what to eat while walking towards the kitchen.

The couple sat at the dining table and at a late meal without talking. They didn't know what to say to each other that hasn't been already said so they ate in silence before Nick got up and took their plates to wash the dishes while Robin went into the bedroom to get undressed and changed before she had to go do the 11pm news cast. Robin left for work a half hour later and Nick stayed home and went to sleep. The next morning Nick had already left for work when Robin got up. She sighed and rolled her eyes. She thought that this relationship with Nick would be a fresh start for her and a way to take her mind off of Barney but it really wasn't and she was starting to think that none of her relationships will ever work out for her.

Later that day Robin called Lily and they met up for lunch. Just the two of them, it has been a while since the two of them just sat and talked without any interuptions. It was nice to get caught up on what was going on in their lives and talking does help whatever problems that may come your way.

"So, how's everything with you and Nick?" Lily asked as she took a sip of her water.

"Well" Robin looked down and sighed really not wanting to talk about it but she did cause this was Lily after all she always finds a way of seeing through anyone's problems. "We, have been fighting a lot recently and it's all because of my new position at work. The last fight was actually the longest fight we have had so far. I'm beginning to think he's jealous of my career success." Robin looked up after saying this and Lily put a consoling hand on hers that was resting on the table and said.

"I'm so sorry, but you have to realize that a job isn't that important and that your relationship is the real thing that matters and try to work whatever issues you have out." Lily really was good at giving advice and Robin really needed it right now even if it wasn't what she needed to hear.

"Thank you" Robin simply said giving a light smile at Lily who also smiled back at her.

"So, what's going on with you. How's little Marvin doing?" Robin asked after a good few minutes of simple silence.

"He's great, he said his first word the other day. Marshall thinks it was just a letter or something but it will do for now I guess." Lily knew that Marvin wasn't old enough yet to say full words so she just let it go.

"Well, he's still young yet to say full words but he will in no time. It's really going to go faster than you think, he'll grow older and soon as your not looking he's going to be walking and talking up a storm before you know it." Robin was laughing a little, it was really nice to laugh and smile for once cause it's been a really hectic couple of month.

"So, have you heard about Barney and Quinn's wedding? They're thinking of having a September wedding." Oh, no that really wasn't a topic she wanted to hear she really just wanted to sit and talk to Lily about other things not about the one topic she tried to avoid for a good two and a half months.

"Really, that's great." Robin said not looking at Lily instead she just took a good long sip of her orange juice.

"Robin... Are you ok?" Lily shouldn't have said anything about Barney but she did and now she regrets it.

"Yeah, I'm fine." Robin said quickly still not looking directly at Lily.

"No, your not. Robin what is it?" Lily knew the question to this but said what she did anyway.

"Okay, fine" Robin finally looked up after another minute and sign before saying..."I have been trying desperately hard to take my mind off Barney and this engagement but it's been so hard. Everything reminds me of him. I have been thinking about him since he annouced his engagement to Quinn and the reason why I started dating Nick was because he is a good distraction from anything Barney." Lily had been listening intently at every word Robin said and all she did was shake her head and let Robin continue with what she was saying. "Nothing works, everything that I have tried to do. Move on with Nick, forget about him, getting that promotion at work it all somehow goes back to Barney." Robin finally finished and whipped her face from the tears that was streaming down rapidly and before she knew it Lily was on her side of the table comforting her with her arm over Robin's back.

"I...I didn't know. I'm so sorry I didn't know this sooner why didn't you tell me?" Lily asked after Robin lifted her head from her shoulder.

"I was trying to stop thinking about him and the engagement and with you being with Marvin all the time I just didn't want to bother you with my problems." Robin whipped her face again looking up at Lily.

"Oh, honey you should have told me I would've been there for you." Lily was truthful about that fact, she would have been there for Robin if she just told her what was going on with her.

"Well, still I just didn't want anyone to know because it would have somehow got around to Barney and I just couldn't deal with that also he's with Quinn I didn't want to ruin whatever he has with her." Robin knew she was lying about that. She was happy for him and Quinn but she really really was not and not that this is kind of out there now she didn't want to deny it any longer.

"Okay, I understand. But, Robin are you still in love with Barney?" Lily had to asked, even though she already knew the answer to that too she just had to ask to get the answer directly from Robin herself.

"Yes" And another stream of tears started coming down her face Lily pulled her in again and Robin rested her head on Lily's shoulder letting all the built up tears come down in full force.

After lunch Robin went off to work and Lily went home. After pulling herself together Robin splashed some cold water on her face when she got to work and fixed her hair up into a tight news anchor bun before leaving the bathroom and headed to her desk actually office. She now has her on office, it took a while but finally made it and at least her job was keeping her happy.
