Double Take

Chapter 50

Chapter 50

Noah barely had the car parked before Patrick was out the door at running towards the house. "Anna!"

Anna was still outside the house checking on the guard who was lying unconscious behind the hyacinth bush. "I just got here and saw him – he's alive."

Noah bent down and took over for her. "Get in the house, we'll take care of him." Matt joined him while Patrick and Anna ran in the house.

"Robin!" Patrick ran up the stairs to their bedroom but she wasn't there. He ran to the nursery and saw a dark haired woman sitting in the rocking chair with one of the boys. He sighed in relief. "Are you okay?"

She stood up and walked over to him, a wide smile on her face. "Of course I am – I have you and Gabriel, what more could I want?"

Daniel laid Robin down gently on the bed. He hadn't even attempted to take her out of town, at least not yet. He wanted to lay low with her for a little while and then sneak away from Port Charles in a couple of days when they were least expecting it.

He gently stroked her cheek. She was still so beautiful and had lost almost all the weight from having Drake's twins. Daniel had waited - it had killed him but he had waited until after the babies were born and she had recovered from her c-section. It was almost a year, but it was worth it.

He laid down next to Robin and wrapped his arms around her. She was worth it.

Patrick froze as he looked at Sabrina cradling Ryan. Anna ran in behind him and, seeing Sabrina standing there, looked at him. Patrick nodded at Alex's crib and Anna quickly grabbed the boy and took him out of the room. "Sabrina, what are you doing here?"

She smiled at him and shook her head. "Where else would I be? Where's Emma?" She continued holding Ryan to her chest, slowly pacing the room with him.

"She's spending the night with Maxie." Patrick was fighting the urge to just reach out and snatch Ryan from her but he didn't want to risk hurting his son.

"Of course. I can't wait to see her in the morning." Ryan began fussing. "It's okay Gabriel, mommy's got you."

Patrick winced as Ryan's cries got louder. Ryan knew this woman wasn't his mommy and was getting scared. "Why don't you let me take him so you can get some sleep?"

Sabrina looked at him and raised her eyebrows. "But you just got off shift and I have been home all night, you need the rest more than I do."

"But it's my night to stay up with him – remember?" Patrick was hoping that by playing into her delusion he might be able to pry Ryan away from her. "Last night you got up with him so tonight it's my turn. Besides, I'm still wired from my last patient. I won't be sleeping anytime soon."

Patrick walked over to her and gently took Ryan out of her arms. "Thank you Sabrina." Patrick quickly backed away from her and got Ryan out of the room.

"Patrick – where are you taking him?" Sabrina ran after him but was stopped at the door by Dante and Nathan. The police officers had arrived while Patrick was talking to Sabrina. "Patrick! Patrick! Gabriel!"

Sabrina collapsed against Nathan, desperately trying to get to Ryan. "Sabrina Santiago, you are under arrest for breaking and entering and attempted kidnapping." Within minutes, the detective had Sabrina handcuffed and mirandized before taking her out of the house and into a waiting police car.

Patrick was checking on the boys while all that was happening. They were both fine and wide awake now. Anna had retrieved a couple of bottles from the kitchen and she and Matt fed the boys while Dante updated Patrick.

"She's not saying anything, at least not anything helpful. To be honest, I think she might have had a complete break from reality. She says that you and her live here with your children, Emma and Gabriel and that Robin has taken off to Africa – it's almost like the last 18 months didn't happen. We're taking her back to Fern Cliff right now."

Patrick shook his head. "How did she get out?"

Dante sighed. "It looks like Daniel posed as you and signed her out. We also found a cloth in your bedroom, it was soaked with chloroform."

Patrick's heart dropped into his stomach. This news confirmed Patrick's worst fear. Daniel had come here tonight with Sabrina but when he left, he took Robin with him.

Dante put his hand on Patrick's shoulder. "I have an APB out on him and road blocks set up. I swear to you Patrick, he won't leave town with her."

Alex began crying so he took the boy from Anna and gently began rocking him and rubbing his back. "I promise you we will bring mommy home. No matter what, mommy will come back home to us."
