Coming Back Around

By cmahorror

Adventure / Thriller

Chapter 1

Update

It has been 4 years since Patrick and Robin's 2nd wedding. Emma is 10 and in grade school while Mal is 4 and in preschool. Patrick and Robin are both working at the hospital and are department heads. Patrick is the Chief Neurosurgeon while Robin is the Lab Director. Except for medical emergencies and occasional work for the WSB, their lives are normal but definitely not boring.

Jason and Liz realized that once he got his memories back there was only one woman for him and that was Sam. Following Jason and Sam's reunion, Liz remarried Ric and they are raising her sons together. The three couples and their children regularly get together for family outings and couples nights.

Silas left town after breaking up with Sam. The last anyone had heard, he had moved to Llanview, PA.

Jason has successfully integrated his two lives. After seizing control from Duke, he had ELQ buy all of Sonny's businesses and dismantled them.

Working with his nephew Michael, Jason successfully saved the company after it was nearly destroyed during the whole Fake Luke debacle. They have actually become very close through the past 4 years and Michael has become like a brother to Jason.

Chapter 1

"You are unbelievable!" Robin stormed in to Patrick's office without knocking. She was furious and did not hesitate to let Patrick know.

He smirked at her. "Tell me something I don't know." Her glare cut him short. "Ok sunshine, what did I do?"

"Mr. Thompson." A look of understanding came over him. "He was doing fine with my drug therapy, progressing nicely and the next thing I know, he's scheduled for surgery with you!"

"You asked me to look at the scans." Patrick wasn't seeing any problem so far.

"Yes, to see how much the tumor had shrunk using my protocol, not so you could swoop in and convince him to let you cut him open." Robin couldn't believe he didn't understand why this upset her.

"Robin, your protocol allowed the tumor to shrink enough that I can go in and safely remove it. Isn't that that what we do? You shrink it and I remove it." He stood up and went over to the door, softly closing and then locking it.

"But you did it without talking to me first. You should have reviewed the scans and then talked to me so we could go and discuss it with Mr. Thompson together."

The light finally went on in Patrick's head. He walked over to her and put his arms around her. "This was not personal. You were in the middle of working on your grant proposal and I didn't want to disturb you." She turned around and looked at him. "It was my mistake and I won't do it again but I stand by my decision to recommend surgery at this time."

Robin sighed, she couldn't stay mad at him and he was right – it was as good a time as any to operate. "I guess you're right but I still wish you had included me."

He nodded his head in agreement. "Noted and from now on, I will. Now, do you have time for a consult?" He gave her a wink and raised his left eyebrow at her.

She laughed. He still amazed her; they still amazed her. This family they had created was more she could have ever hoped for. "I might have a few minutes for a quick consult."

"Oh come on Robin, you know nothing about one of our consults is quick."

She laughed out loud and threw her arms around his neck. "Then why are we wasting time talking. Shut up and do me."

Picking her up, he whispered softly in her ear "your wish is my command," and carried her over to the couch.



She was throwing clothes in a suitcase when he walked in. "Is the jet ready?"

Nikolas watched her pack. "Yes – are you ready?"

She looked at Nikolas and smiled. "I've been ready for a long time. Let's go home."

Nikolas nodded at her and left her to finish packing. By tomorrow morning, they would be back to Port Charles. He picked up a picture of Robin he had on his dresser and smiled. Lovingly, he ran his finger over her face. "It's almost time."

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Valeria Rocco Lo Presti: I have to confess that I read the book in less than a week. I became obsessed with the characters as I was entering to their world. It is definitely a must for those who enjoy a pleasant reading with amazing writing skills!

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
