PS.: The medical stuff are just pure invention! I don't know anything about medicine! sorry
“Soo… in the same minuto that we found out that Chase has a little sister we found out that she is dying…. Jeez, I hope someday I’ll get his luck” House sinabi sarcastically while Pagsulat on his white board. He was on his office thinking about his discovery when Cameron and Foreman rushed to him.
He then turned around and took a glance on the conference room. Thirteen and Taub were examining Claire’s file and Kutner was looking at the board, thinking. Cameron was sitting sa pamamagitan ng the mesa with her head on her hands, taking deep breaths and Foreman was also examining the board, where now read:
‘Muscle pain, dizziness, hemorrhage’
“So, people, differential diagnostic?” House asked
“Could be leukemia” Kutner said, sitting sa pamamagitan ng the table.
“White-blood cells count is normal” Thirteen sinabi pagbaba the file.
“Diabetes?” Kutner sinabi again.
“Blood work came back normal” Taub answered.
“Uhmm, if her immune system is compromised it could be lystiria” Thirteen offered.
House thought about it, the symptoms could fit… but it was a long shot.
“Go test her for it” He sinabi to Kutner, Taub and Thirteen. They got up and rushed to the door.
After the three of them got out, House turned to Foreman and Cameron
“So… I think we got a situation here” He sinabi walking closer to them and putting his cane over the desk.
“You THINK?” Foreman shouted ironically “What are we going to do, I mean, we know that she is Chase’s sister, we know she is sick, we know is serious but we don’t know what it is!” he continued sounding a bit desperate.
House looked at him and then lowered his head “I see that! So who is going to tell Chase the great news??”
Foreman looked at Cameron, she hadn’t sinabi a word after they ran to House’s office to tell him what happened, they had controlled the bleed and Claire was now sedated, they just needed to find out what’s wrong with her, but Cameron’s mind seemed to be thinking on everything that girl represented and what she would bring along with her. Foreman waited to see if she was going to say anything, but after realizing that she wasn’t he decides to say for her.
“No one, we shouldn’t tell him anything right now” Foreman sinabi to House’s surprise, Cameron didn’t even stirred “I mean, that girl is the daughter of the man that abandoned him, he didn’t even know about her, now, she gets without a family and comes looking for her unknown brother, looking to have a family again, but you know things got trickier when we found out that she is dying” he added “Imagine, if we tell Chase, he gets attached with her, and them she dies and he goes back to the pain of losing family all over again! His parents are dead and now his sister too?!”
House looked at him and realized that he was right, it was a very difficult decision, if this girl really dies it would be too hard on Chase, but just not telling him was… a very very bad idea.
“So, what do you suggest? That we don’t tell him? What if he finds out on his own? And the girl already knows that we know him… for now she is sedated but when she wakes up she’ll ask questions!” He sinabi looking Foreman intensely in the eyes, hoping he’ll have a good answer.
“I don’t say we never tell him, I say we postpone the telling part, and keep him away from the case so he won’t find out on his own!” Foreman said, like if he was putting an end to the matter.
“Well I guess we could try that and….” House started but was interrupted sa pamamagitan ng Cameron, which was finally was able to say something.
“NO! We are not sticking to that plan” she sinabi now getting up “I’m going to go tell him!”
“Cameron, I really don’t think this is a good idea…” Foreman started
“No, I don’t care, I just... don’t!” she looked determined and a bit scary in House’s opinion, she was shaking a little and was getting quite angry with them “So what if she’s dying?! He has the right to know, we can’t just hide this from him, sneak around on his back, this is his business, not yours!” She continued.
“But Cameron, this is big! It’s not just a little secret that we’re keeping from him! This is HUGE!” Foreman said, determined to change her mind
“Don’t you think I know this is HUGE?!” She shouted at him, now looking very irritated, Foreman took some steps back “I know this madami than you do, actually, that is exactly why I am going to tell him, it will be a shock, a BIG one, but he needs to know, he just does, besides, she’ll look for him, and he has got to be prepared for that”
Looking at the thinking faces of the two men, she signed, hoping that she convinced them.
“You’re right” House sinabi abruptly “It’s the best, this is too much to hide, I mean it’s not everyday that we have a dying confuse unknown sister ipinapakita up at our door step! He has got to be prepared” he added.
“Well, if I am the only one that thinks this is not a good idea…” Foreman said, giving up “You should tell him” He sinabi now looking at Cameron.
“Okay... thank you, now I got to go find Chase!” She said, and in one minuto the men saw her rushing down the hallways, looking very nervous.
Then House and Foreman looked at each other, the same expression of doubt and fear on their faces.
AN: So? what do you think, Chase will appear on the susunod chapter, I promise! Hope you like it!
