She froze, her voice got stuck and her body got numb. After 4 years Lisa Cuddy was listening that voice again, the voice of her ex-employee, ex-lover, ex-friend. The man who ruined her life who made her leave Princeton for a year to restart her life, and come back to her hospital.

After a moment she answers.

"Why are you calling me House?" she starts to feel anger inside of her.

"Listen do not hang up, please. I need to talk with you" he was trying to convince her not to hang up. His voice show traces of fear, fear from the answer he was about to listen.

"Ok, start talking"

"Thanks Cuddy, I'm going to be fast" he was relieved, his voice was calm, soft.

She got that, the calm in his voice. She could hear it, Lisa Cuddy know him.

"I don´t know if you know, but I'm living in Miami for about 4 years, I'm working at the hospital the Miami Teaching Hospital."

"No I didn´t know. But I bet it's not that you want to tell me" said Cuddy.

"No. Cuddy last week, I had an accident with my bike, a drunk driver crash in to me and another car" His voice still soft and calm.

"Oh, are you ok?" now she was getting worried even if she didn't want to show that concern.

"No Cuddy I`m not, remember that fracture on my skull that I had on the bus accident?"

"Yes, of course I remember."

"Well I got a new one, in the same spot, but worse this time. The docs said I have to have surgery soon as possible. But as every skull surgery it´s danger. I can become blind or with memory lost."

"Oh my god, are you serious?" now she was full of fear for the man that she loved.

"Yes Cuddy I ´am, that's why I call you. I need a favor from you " said House.

"Favor? What kind of favor?

"Cuddy, I know what I did to you and I'm really sorry for that, but you are the only person I trust. I trust you more than ever, so I want you to ask you if you can come to Miami to assist my surgery."

House finally said but with a bit of fear in his voice and also scary that she would deny.

"House, I …I don't know if I can go. Rachel is sick and I don't want to leave her alone here" Cuddy said but, the remorse starts filling her.

"Oh, ok. That´s ok. May I ask what she has?"

"She has flu, but you know how kids are. They don't want to go to school, they just want to be home seeing movies all day" cuddy is starting to feel better as speaking about Rachel.

"Yeah" House laugh being more relax as the conversation continues. "I understand Cuddy. In fact, I never thought you would speak with me again"

"Me too, but you know, for more bad this you have done to me I … I have never forgotten you" she said to the man that even not telling, in her head and heart, she still loves.

"Cuddy I'm really sorry for everything and I was hoping to see you one last time, if everything goes wrong" his sad voice come to the top.

"Listen I'm sure it's going to be all right"

"Well I hope so, thank you Cuddy. I really appreciate talk to you" He was getting emotional.

"Me too House, bye and good luck" said Cuddy with a small voice.

"Give Rachel a kiss for me. I hope to see you again anytime soon"

"Bye House"

And House got sad, but he had listened the voice of the love of his life, and for that the call was worth it. Cuddy feel something wet on her face, and realizes that she was crying after what been said that she would never would talk him, or acknowledge his existence. And there was she talking with him, Gregory House. After a moment she thought about what he said, only trusting her like he did other times, but now was different, he had nobody there to support him.

I'm sorry but I'm from Portugal, but I write in English but I have to translate
