Next morning Lisa gets up at lunch time and goes straight to have a shower, she doesn’t even know if he has come back yet and she doesn’t want to go to his room just in case they ended up at his bed. When she goes out of the bathroom, she bumps into him who is waiting near the door to have his shower.
‘Morning... well, afternoon.’
She doesn’t know what to say.
‘Hey... You can have your shower, I’ve finished. Nice party by the way.’
‘Yeah, it was nice.’
Lisa doesn’t look at him and goes to her dorm to read a book. He doesn’t know what she did last night, he was... a little busy. Greg feels curious and when finishes in the bathroom goes to her dorm and knock the door, custom that he will lose over the years.
He goes in. ‘Did you finally meet soemone?’
‘I talked with a nice boy for a while but I was tired and came home early.’
‘You just met a girl in a whole night?’
‘A few ones...’
She chuckles. ‘Okay... You don’t waste time, uh?’
‘Well it's normal, you're a goodlooking guy, maybe too much pimp, self confident and arrogant, but those things aren't important for a one-night-girl.’
She nods. ‘You're welcome.’
‘Are you a one-night-girl?’
‘No, do I look like one?’
‘Nope... but you know where to find me... I live nextdoors.’ He winks at her exaggeratedly and goes.
Some time later when she finishes reading, goes to the living room to watch TV for a while with him. They are in silence and the phone rings. Lisa looks at him. ‘I’ll pick it up.’ She stands up and answers the phone. ‘Hello?’
‘Yes, yes, it’s me... I’m sorry, who are you?’ Asks a bit confused.
‘It’s me, David. The gin-tonic guy...’
She laughs. ‘Oh yes, I remember, how are you? Hmm how did you get my number?’
‘'Cause a friend of mine told me that you live with Greg House and he gave me this number.’
‘Ah yeah, yes, I live with him.’ She talks in a lower voice so Greg can’t hear her. ‘Is he so well known?’
‘That seems... specially among females.’
‘Hmm yeah, I guessed it...’
David gets a bit nervous. ‘Eh... I was wondering...well, if you would like to go for a walk. If you have nothing to do of course...’
She’s a bit surprised. ‘Ah... Ehh yeah, why not?’
‘Great. Tonight at eight at the cafeteria?’
‘Sure. I’ll see you there. Thanks for calling.’
‘Thank you. See you later.’
When she hangs up goes to sit with House again. ‘Who was it?’ Asks he curious.
‘The only guy I met in a whole night.’ Says Lisa emphasizing the word “only”.
He chuckles. ‘Oh... right.... successful night, uh?’
‘Last night it wasn’t, tonight... maybe...’
He chuckles again and she stands up to go to get dressed. He stays in the living room thinking about that mysterious guy until she comes back to say goodbye.
‘So... you have a date...’
‘Yes... Think so...’
‘Uh huh... good... need some... you know...?’
She looks at him with her eyes wide open. ‘No... Didn’t I tell you that I wasn’t a one-night-girl?’
‘Okay, okay... it's just a matter of prevention...’
She smiles and sighs. ‘I’ll see you later.’ she picks up her keys and goes to the cafeteria to wait for David.
House is curiosus and a bit jealous about her date, despite he’d never admit it. He takes his keys and decides to follow her.
‘Hey, sorry for the delay...’ Apologizes David when he arrives.
‘Oh it’s nothing, don’t worry. I got here two minutes ago.’
‘Well, where do you wanna go? Have you dined?’
House is hidden behind a near corner and thinks to himself. ‘Hmmm, so you're gonna invite her, uh?’
David keeps being nice with her. ‘Ok, come with me, I know a place where we can eat delicious chops.’
‘Actually I'm a vegetarian...’
House smiles and says in a low voice. ‘Haha, take that!’
David remains thinking. ‘Hmm that changes things... I know a pizzeria, you like pizza?’
‘Sure, let's go.’
They go to a pizzeria near to the campus and House keeps following them and sits on a table where he can hear what they say.
‘Tell me something more about you. Where are you from?’ Asks David while they wait for the food.
‘I was born in Boston, but I grew up in Wayne. What about you?’
‘I was born in Massachusett too, in Cambridge, and I moved here this year... You have any siblings?’
‘Yep, one sister.’ The waiter brings them their food and House listens to what they both say.
‘What kind things you like to do?’
‘Typical things. I love reading, writing, going out with my friends, studying medicine, and I love listening to music, I'd like to know how to play the piano.’
‘I can’t help you with that, I'm completely useless for music.’
‘Bonus points for me.’ Thinks Greg.
‘How is it like having House as a roommate?’ Lisa didn’t expect that question, neither do Greg, but he wants to know what she thinks.
‘Hmm I don't know, let's say that at the begining we had some fights... But he is a nice guy.’
House chuckles and David interrogates her even more. ‘Can I ask you something a little more personal?’ Lisa doubtful nods. ‘Do you... like him? A lot of girls have the hots for him, I don’t know him, but what does he have?’
She remains in silence some seconds wondering to herself if she likes him. ‘I’m not like many girls, but I guess that his piercing blue eyes have something to do with that. Besides he is very intelligent, sexy, and I'm sure he will be a great doctor...’ Answers finally. ‘Is this an interrogation? Does he told you to ask me that?’
House covers his mouth with his hands in order not to laugh out loud.
‘No, I just was curious... I don’t understand girls.’
‘We don't understand men, either.’
When they finish eating, pay the bill and go for a walk. Greg hides himself behind a menu until they leave and then follows them from behind. Lisa and David talk and walk for a long time and suddenly David approaches to her and kisses her on her lips. Greg stops suddenly shocked. Why the hell is that guy doing that?
Lisa didn’t expect that at all, but kisses him back. Now House doesn’t know what to do, why the hell is SHE doing that?? And why the hell he wants to punch that moron? He stays still looking at them.
Then Lisa thinks of Greg and stops kissing David. Why the hell has she thought of him? She separates from David and he looks at her worried. Why the hell I went so fast? Thinks David to himself. ‘I'm sorry...’
‘No, no, it's... I... gotta go. Thanks for the dinner’ Lisa leaves him there and walks to her residence confused.
