Two weeks later

"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride." Patrick smiled and then happily kissed Robin. They were in the ballroom at Wyndamere; once Nikolas had heard they were getting married again he insisted on that they have wedding there.

Everyone clapped and cheered. Robin and Patrick walked down the aisle, followed closely by Emma and Nikolas. Patrick had asked Nikolas to be his best man as a favor to Robin. She felt that since it was Nikolas's idea to have the wedding at Wyndamere, the least they could do was include him in the wedding party. Matt was still in prison and he really didn't have any male friends besides Nikolas anyway.

While pictures were being taken, the ballroom was being changed from a chapel to a reception hall. The reception would be held there at Wyndamere and Patrick and Robin were staying the night before leaving on a short honeymoon.

After pictures, Robin and Patrick shared their first dance together, followed by a father-daughter dance between Emma and Patrick. Last but not least was a father-daughter dance between Robin and Robert. Noah took advantage of this moment to congratulate his son.

Noah had been in and out of Port Charles quite a bit over the years but had recently come back for good following the discovery that Patrick had been replaced by a doppelganger. The guilt he felt at not being there for his son again was eating away at him. Noah had been able to get a short few talks in with Patrick and Patrick had assured him that he had nothing to feel guilty for but Noah still did.

"Congratulations! I'm thrilled that Robin and you found your way back to each other." He hugged Patrick and Patrick hugged him back. Patrick had a strange look on his face. "What are you thinking about?"

Patrick watched Robin dancing with her dad. "About the first time she said yes. You know it took 3 proposals before we finally got engaged, right?"

Noah laughed, he had the story many times. "Oh yeah. It took a pair of handcuffs and some time in an interrogation room for you two to finally realize you wanted to marry each other."

Patrick laughed too. "I know. Anna didn't take it easy on me either; she was rough with those cuffs." The dance ended. "I'm going to go retrieve my wife. See you later."

Noah stood there in shock for a moment and then went over to Anna who was talking to Maxie. "May I have a dance?"

"Of course Noah." Noah took Anna's hand and walked her out to the dance floor. "Noah, what's wrong?"

"What's wrong? Anna, I don't know who that man is, but I know who he isn't." He looked Anna straight in the eyes. "The man Robin just married is not Patrick."
