Epilogue 21 years on
"Hey, Rob?" Chandler walked through the door to his son's bedroom. "We gotta get going…you ready?"
Robby took on last look in the mirror, taking a deep breath before turning to his Dad. "Yep, let's go…"
"Y'know everything's going to be okay, right?"
"Yeah, course I do.." Robby smiled. "Best day of my life!"
"Good!" Chandler grinned.
"Come on, let's get this over with…"
"Right!" Chandler agreed but neither of them moved, they just stood smiling at each other. Chandler glanced down slightly and stuffed his hands in his pocket before looking back up. "You know I'm so proud of you…"
"Aww… here comes all the soppy stuff…" Robby teased, moaning jokily.
"Alright, alright…lets just go then!" Chandler laughed slightly.
Robby nodded again and moved towards the door, just as he passed his Dad, he pulled him into a hug.
"Anytime…" Chandler replied quietly.
"Our little boy is all grown up…" Monica whispered, as they sat at the front of the
Church, watching their eldest getting married.
"I know…" Chandler smiled, squeezing her hand.
He grinned when he Robby around to look at him for reassurance before turning back
and listening to Joey, who was the minister.
As Robby and his future wife, Gemma exchanged vows, Chandler glanced around the
church at his family and friends.
There was their 21-year-old son, Cody stood as Rob's best man. The bridesmaids were Jamie and Kayleigh, their 19 and 16 year old daughters, along with Gemma's sister.
Sitting next to him was Ross and Rachel, now married for 20 years and had 2 children of their own, Emma and Chris. Next Monica was Phoebe and Mike, who had twin daughters Lily and Josephine.
Next to them were Joey's wife, Sarah and their son, Chandler Junior or C.J.
Chandler grinned again and stood up with everyone else, clapping when Joey announced them man and wife.
He looked back at Monica, slipping his arm around her shoulder, as she tried her eyes.
Yeah, life couldn't get much better.
"If one more person comes up to me and tells me it's my turn next, I'm going to scream!" Cody moaned as he sat down at the table.
The 6 friends smiled knowingly at each other.
"Yep, you're differently like your father!" Ross told him, slapping him on the back, the others agreeing.
"Hey, I was married before all of you so shut up!" Chandler resorted, grabbing Monica's hand and pulling her up. "Come on, I wanna dance."
"Y'know, that does sound bad for us that Chandler was married before us…" Rachel said.
"Yeah and he had the first kid!" Phoebe added.
"Hey what about Ben?" Ross pointed out.
"What? Don't be stupid, Ben's not even married, let alone had a kid before Chandler!" Phoebe rolled her eyes.
"I think he mines that Ben was the first one to be born…" Rachel informed him.
"Oh right, yeah…"
"You lot are weird!" Cody stated and walked off.
"So, we've married one off… 3 to go…" Monica smiled at Chandler as they slowly moved to the music.
"Yeah, well the girls are only young, they aren't no where near getting married!" Chandler insisted.
"You know you have to give them up sometime…" She laughed slightly.
"I know! Just not yet…"
"Well, I'm sure we've got a couple more years yet with them…" Monica kissed his cheek gently. "Maybe a life time with Cody…"
"Eh, I wouldn't be to sure…" Chandler smiled; nodding to where his youngest son was flirting with Gemma's sister.
"Just like his father, going for the bridesmaid…" She teased, referring to Ross' wedding.
"Excuse me?! I think you'd find it was you who came to my room!" He remembered her.
"Ah but I wasn't looking for you…"
"Fine, then I'll go get Joey for you…" He said, going to walk away.
She stopped him and pulled him back to her. "Nah, I think I'll stick you."
"Oh only if you're sure…"
"I'm sure…" She smiled, leaning up and kissing him.
They broke a part when he heard someone clearing their throat. They spun around to see Robbie and Gemma stood behind them.
"Hey, Dad… I'll swap with you?" Robby said.
"Been married only for 2 hours and you already wanna swap?" Chandler joked.
"Yeah but its Mom…"
"Alright, I'll let you off…" Chandler took Gemma's hand while Robbie started dancing with Monica.
"So, married to my son…" Chandler smiled at her as they danced. "Congratulations…"
She returned his smile. "Thank you."
"No problem…you just call me if he gives you any trouble…all send Mon around to sort him out!"
"Oh, I'll do that!" Gemma laughed. "Thanks…Dad."
Chandler looked at her a second, before a small smile formed on his face. "You just called me Dad…"
"I like it…" Chandler nodded, his smiled widening.
Later that night, just after Monica Chandler arrived him, they sat cuddled up on the couch.
"So, we have four children, one of has just gotten married…" Monica started, turning slightly to look at him. "You still having doubts about your ability as a father?"
He was silently for a moment, thinking about the conversation they had in the park nearly 21 years ago.
"I think, I'll always have some doubts…"
