In the morning, Lisa wakes up early and goes to the room where Greg is sleeping, he opens his eyes slowly and sees her. Cuddy lies on kama susunod to him. ‘How do you feel?’
‘Better. I haven't slept very well, though...’
‘Does your leg hurt less?’
‘It hurts the same... but my body's starting to feel better...’
She nods. ‘That’s good. I’m so proud of you.’
‘I haven't done anything yet... this is just the beginning... I could disappoint you tomorrow... I'm not as strong as you may think.’
‘I know how you are, I know that you can do this, and I know why you’re doing this.’
‘I'm not so sure about it...’ He sighs and she looks at him worried.
‘So... what are you gonna do? What do you want me to do?’
‘... I don't know... I don't know what to do, what to feel, what to say...’
‘Do you wanna go to the hospital?’
‘I don't want other doctors see me like this...’
‘Okay...’ Cuddy rubs his arm. ‘You feel like eating something?’ He nods and they go to the kitchen. ‘What do you want?’
‘A sanwits would be fine...’
Lisa prepares the sandwiches and gives one to him. ‘You look better than yesterday.’
‘At least I'm hungry...’
‘That's a good signal.’
‘I guess so...’ They eat. While House is eating he feels sick, leaves the sanwits on the mesa and goes to the bathroom without saying anything. Lisa leaves her sanwits and follows him.
He goes in and closes the door. She wait for him outside, leaning against the wall. ‘May I come in? Can I help you?’
‘If you can throw up for me yes, you can...’
She gets into the bathroom and sits susunod to him rubbing his back. ‘I think you shouldn’t have eaten the sandwich.’
‘I didn't eat the whole sanwits actually... I just gave it two bites...’
‘Are you feeling better now? You want a chamomile or something?’
‘No...’ He goes to the sink and wets his face and nape. She touches his forehead.
‘The temperature is normal. You feel cold?’
‘I don't feel very good... the pain is coming back again...’
‘I can't help you with that... Just come to lie on the sofa.’ They lie on the sofa and she gives him a massage. ‘I can't do anything else without giving you any painkiller. We just can wait.’
Lisa takes some days off in order to look after him. He has a very bad time, he’s in pain and this situation is very difficult for him. Time goes sa pamamagitan ng and he finally he starts to feel better gradually. One araw he feels better but he has been in kama most of the time trying not to force his leg. It’s late and she gets in kama with him. ‘Are you feeling better?’
‘Yeah, madami or less...’ He sighs and closes his eyes.
Lisa nods and kisses his cheek. ‘Good night.’ House approaches, hugs her and kisses her gently. She returns the halik softly. ‘You sure you’re okay?’
‘We can guess...’
She smiles, kisses him and lies on him. ‘It hurts?’
‘Yeah... your asno is too heavy...’ Jokes him.
‘You’ll have to settle for it’ She smiles and kisses him. House returns the halik passionately and she starts halik his neck. His legs doesn’t hurt right now (thank God), and Lisa looks at him. ‘You’re alright?’
‘Yeah... pretty well...’ He smiles mischievously.
‘Good.’ She smiles at him and kisses him again. They continue with their stuff and after a wild wild night they fall asleep.
In the morning he wakes up and sees her asleep, when she wakes up smiles at him.
‘That... was... incredible.’
‘Another job well done...’ Jokes House making her chuckle.
‘Does your leg hurt?’
‘A bit... but it is madami or less manageable.’
‘That’s great. I’m really happy for you.’ She gives him a kiss. ‘I'm gonna have a shower. And later I want to see if my hospital hasn't burnt yet.’ Cuddy gets out of bed. ‘You wanna come with me? To the hospital I mean...’
‘Uhhh... don't think so... my leg still hurts a little... I'll stay here.’
‘Right, then I’ll see you at lunch time.’ She goes to the bathroom to have a shower. Some minutos later she gets dressed and goes out. ‘Okay, I’m leaving. You sure you don’t wanna come?’
‘Sure... have fun for me...’
She smiles and goes to the hospital. House sleeps for some madami hours, then goes to the bathroom. He opens a drawer and finds a bottle of vicodin. He doesn't take it but just observe it and gets a bit nervous. ‘Stupid, there's no one here appart from me!!!’ He looks around, breathes deeply once, and takes the bottle in his hand. House looks at it and puts the vicodin on his hand. He thinks “It's just one... no one's gonna know this... but if I lie to her... it means that I don't deserve anyone...” He stares at the pill when suddenly someone comes into the house.
‘Greg? Hi?? Are you here?’
He closes the bathroom’s door and locks it very quickly. ‘I’m... busy...’
She gets into the room, looks at the bathroom’s door and frowns. ‘Okay... I rather don’t to know what you’re doing in there.’
House almost doesn’t pay attention to her words, just looks at the pill. Finally, he sighs and puts it back into the bottle and leaves it where he found it. He flushes and opens the door.
‘Hi... And that face? Are you okay?’ Asks Cuddy.
‘Uhhh... nothing... I just looked myself in the mirror and realized how handsome I am...’
She rolls her eyes and slaps him softly smiling. ‘You will never change...’
He tries to smile in order not to look nervous. ‘Was everything fine in the hospital?’
‘Yes, although you may not believe, people miss you.’
‘Yeah I'm pretty sure Foreman missed my svelte figure walking in the office and Cameron is looking pasulong to getting my post. No wait... I inverted it...’
She chuckles. ‘Did you have lunch?’
‘Nope... I was... waiting for you.’
‘Okay, let’s eat something then’
‘I really feel like eating an omelet.’
They cook a big omelet to share and sit down to eat.
‘That smells great...’ Says Greg. He is still worried. ‘Hey I have something to ask you...’
‘Sure, tell me.’
‘Did you know that there's a vicodin bottle in the bathroom? I found it this morning...’
‘No, I didn't know it... Was it empty?’
‘... There was one pill... actually... there's still one pill. I haven't taken it.’
‘Oh that’s great.’ She looks at him surprised and happy. ‘I don’t know what to say... I-I’m so proud.’
‘If you repeat it so much I'll have to believe it eventually.’
‘Believe it, because is true. Actually you...have changed... a little. For good.’
‘Anyway, you should get rid of that pill... I'm not very sure what I can do the same susunod time...’
‘Okay, wait here.’ Cuddy goes to the bathroom to take the bottle and puts it in her purse, then goes back where he is.
‘When do you think you can go back to work?’
‘I don't know... I'd be surrounded sa pamamagitan ng lots and lots of drugs... you think I'm ready?’
She chuckles. ‘Well, actually last night you were, but I don’t know... I miss you there. Do you feel able to work again?’
‘I guess I could try...’
‘If you feel bad we can go back home.’
They eat in silence and someone knocks at the door. ‘I'll go... Coming.’ House stands up and opens it. ‘Hi, Wilson.’
Lisa walks to the door too. ‘Hi, James. How are you?’
‘I'm fine.’ He smiles at her and looks at House. ‘Hey, how do you feel? You look better.’
‘I'm... fine... I guess. I'll be back very soon.’
‘He'll try to come tomorrow with me.’
‘That... sounds great. We're glad to have you back, well except from Foreman.’ They chuckle.
‘Well, that doesn't surprise me at all...’
‘I don't care about Foreman, now we're having you back.’ Says Lisa approaching to House and passing her hand over his back hugging him. ‘We were just eating, you wanna eat something, Wilson?’
‘Oh no, no, thank you. I just came here to say hi.’ He gives House a pat on his shoulder. ‘I'm glad you're feeling better. See you tomorrow then, guys!’
They nod. ‘See you, Wilson.’
‘He can't live without me...’ Jokes House.
‘He has missed you these two months... we have been almost living in the hospital.’
‘I know... and that makes me feel bad...’
‘Why? It wasn’t your fault. It was an accident.’
‘Yeah... I know... but you've been there with me all this time... I don't think I deserve it.’
‘Don’t be silly. You'd have done the same for me.’ He remains in silence and she stares at him. ‘Don’t you?’
