When they get to France, they go to the hotel by bus and get to their respective rooms. When Lisa finishes putting her things on the wardrobe, goes to William’s room. Greg opens the door in order to go out, then he sees that Lisa is knocking nextdoors, what means that that’s William’s room, and he thinks to himself: “Great, the best neightbour I could have...” ‘Hey...’
Lisa sees him and thinks to herself: “Damn it, why does he always have to be around?” ‘Hi...’
‘Come in, it’s open.’ Says William from inside.
‘Have fun, I’ll see you later.’ Says her to Greg before coming in. William and Lisa stay in his room for a while and he proposes her to go with him to a party that night, and if she wants she can tell Greg to come too. She accepts. They lie on the bed huged.
‘Your friend... is different, a sarcastic genius isn't he?’ Asks Will.
‘He is a jerk... when he wants.’
‘How much do you know him? I mean... How long...?’
She looks at him surprised and shakes her head because she doesn’t know if she has misunderstood what he said. ‘Ehh.. I know him... since September, when I started college.’
‘Good... Well, you wanna go for a walk? We can go to the Eiffel Tower or the Champ de Mard if you want.’
They go sightseeing and walking through the streets of Paris, they get to the Eiffel Tower. William takes his camera and asks to a guy to take them a picture there. House is around there and sees them. He approaches to them and appears in the middle of the photo.
‘Hey guys! What a coincidence!’
‘Greg what are you...’
‘Hey, you screwed up the photo, but nice to see you.’ Says Will.
‘Whoops sorry, I usually screw up so many things that I almost do it automatically...’
‘Don't swear it...’ Murmurs Lisa.
‘Oh by the way, I told her to invite you to a party if you’d like to come, of course, but I can invite you myself now.’
‘Sure, I'll be there, count on me!!’ Cuddy likes to hear that but doesn’t say anything. ‘Okay... enjoy the rest of the day guys!!’
‘We’ll call you at eight. Bye.’ The happy couple keep walking in silence. Will looks at her. ‘Why are you so quiet? You didn't want me to invite him?’
‘No, no, it’s okay, I'm okay. Just... the Jet Lag...’
Some time later they go back to the hotel and get dressed for the party. Lisa goes to William’s room and he stares at her with his mouth open. ‘Wow you look so gorgeous. I won't leave you alone all night.’ He smiles approaches to her and kisses her.
‘Greg... is waiting for us...’
They knock at Greg’s door and he opens the door. ‘You look really good...’ Says House.
‘He’s talking about you.’ Says Lisa to her boyfriend.
‘Oh, you caught me!!’ Shouts House giggling.
‘Are you... serious?’ William approaches a little more to her.
‘Oh you look so, so, so good... you're the sexiest man I've ever seen...’ Says House mocking at him.
‘Oh yes... you didn't know? He's a “gaynious”.’ Cuddy and House go on with their joke.
‘Absolutely!!!’ Greg winks at him.
‘Ehmm... I'm s-sorry but... I'm with her... and I'm not gay.’
‘Greg's not jealous.’ Points her.
‘Lisa...’ Says Will while looking at her a bit worried.
‘Not really... actually she can join us if she wants...’ House winks at them both.
‘Oh sure I will.’ Says Lisa and they start laughing while Will looks at them confused.
‘We're kidding. He's not gay, in fact he's the most not-gay guy that I know...’
‘Don't worry William I'm not gay, and if I were you wouldn't be the kind of man that I'd like to be with...’
He’s still a bit confused. ‘Yes... I get it... Shall we go?’ He starts walking holding Lisa’s hand, but she turns to smile at Greg and he smiles back at her.
When they get to the party, William goes for a while with some friends and Greg and Lisa wait together.
‘I think your boyfriend was really scared before...’
‘It was fun.’
‘Yeah, it was...’ He chuckles.
‘He’s so naive...’ They see William saying hello to some of his friends. ‘a-and and nice, and handsome and intelligent...’
‘Wo, wo, wo... stop it or I'll end up falling in love with him trully...’
She chuckles. ‘You’re not gay... and he’s mineeee.’
‘You selfish bitch!!’ Says House kidding.
‘Monkey see monkey do…’
They laugh and he stares at her. Lisa looks around avoiding his look.
‘So... are things going well between you both?’
‘Ehmm yes, yes, I guess so. He’s so nice and tender without being annoying, so yes, things are going well more or less. I can’t complain.’
‘Good... I'm glad...’ “No, I’m not!” is what he actually thinks.
‘And what about you? You can have as many girls as you want, you don’t like any girl in particular?’ Greg shrugs and she smiles. ‘What does that mean... Come on! Cheer up! I'll help you to find a good girl for you.’
‘Oh come on, I don't need a matchmaker...’
‘What do you need?’
‘All you need is love...’ Sings House.
Lisa rolls her eyes and drinks in silence. ‘Have you ever loved someone?’
‘Is this becoming a group therapy or something?’
‘It’s just a question.’
‘I'll keep the answer for me...’
Lisa shrugs this time. ‘Okay, I won’t insist.’ He nods and looks around. Lisa tries to think about anything to talk about. ‘You like music?’
‘Yeah... I play the piano. Do you play any musical instrument?’
‘Really??? All these months living together and you tell me this now! I love piano, I wish I could play it, but I don’t play any instrument...’
‘I could play for you one day...’
‘I would love it.’ She smiles at him.
‘Count on it!’ And smiles back at her, then William comes and sits between them. ‘Hey guys! How you doing?’
‘Better than five minutes ago but not as good as in five minutes' time.’ Answers House.
‘Are you having fun, honey?’
‘Yes, nice party. You had fun with your friends?’
‘Yes.’ William yawns. ‘Sorry, I’m a little tired because of the flight, I think I’m gonna go back to the hotel soon...’
‘You wanna go back now?’ Asks Lisa.
‘Will you come with me? I don’t want you to go back alone.’
‘Oh man, don't worry about that, we won't let any French rape you... we'll go with you.’ Says House and she nods.
‘Thank you, baby.’
‘Oh, don't worry darling...’ Jokes House.
Will ignores him and kisses her on her cheek and they go to Will’s door.
‘I’ll see you tomorrow okay?’ Says Will approaching to her.
‘Yes, sure. See you William.’ She gives him a quick kiss but before she moves away, Will gets closer and gives her a deep kiss. Then he looks at House and whispers. ‘I’d like to have a bit more privacy...’
‘Sure... how impolite of me!!’ House doesn't go away but turns around.
‘Goodnight William, I'll see you in the morning.’
‘See you Lis. Bye House.’
Greg and Lis are not tired and go for a walk, five minutes later, they decide to come in again.
‘It's a bit cold outside right now. If you want we can sit somewhere here and talk... in my room for example.’
‘Yes, your room is closer than mine. And I'm not scared by seeing your pink underwear.’ She chuckles.
‘I left my pink underwear in Michigan. Instead of that I brough my cheetah design one...’ Says House opening the door.
‘Uuuu that’s even better.’
House takes his coat and his shoes off and jumps in the bed.
‘Since I’m living with you... have you brought any woman to the house?’
What a question!! Thinks House. ‘Have you seen any woman?? Discretion Lisa, discretion...’
‘Hahah no, actually no, I haven't. Oh my God! Have you brought any man??? I thought you were mocking at my boyfriend!’ Jokes her and they laugh.
‘Lots and lots of them!!!’
Lisa takes off her coat and leaves it on the bed too.
‘If I take my pants off will you take your dress off?? I'm willing to make that effort...’ Jokes him.
Suddenly she has a flashback and remembers when he took her dress off. ‘Ehh... No, it’s not necesary, I rather see you dressed up... or you’ll lose the little charm you have.’
‘That was so awful.’ Complaints House.
‘I was kidding.’ She exaggerates. ‘I'm sure you've a HUGE charm. That's better?’
‘Enormous... giant, I would say...’
She chuckles. ‘Don’t go so far...’
They remain thinking. ‘Well... this is our first and last year at university... Will you miss me??’ Says Greg joking, but he actually means it.
Lisa didn’t expect that question, she knows that she’ll miss him so so much, but obviously, she won’t tell him that. ‘I-I... Yes, I guess so... we’ve been living together some months, I think I’ll miss you, but just a little. And will you miss me?’
‘Uhh... not really...’ Answers him kidding.
‘You’re such a bad liar! With me at least!’
‘Then, why are you asking if you know the answer?’
‘'Cause it’s different if I hear it from you.’
‘You love making me suffer...’
‘Yes, I love that.’
He smiles at her but doesn’t answer.
‘Seriously, I think I’m gonna miss you. You’ve been part of my daily life all these months. It will be strange not to see you again.’
House chuckles. ‘Oh, that's very touching... I'll give you a photo if that makes you feel less sad.’
‘No thanks. Actually on the other hand, I'll be a bit happy when you leave... No one will make me cleaning the house during a month, no one will put laxatives in my drink, no one will hide my assignments...’
‘But not everything was bad, wasn't it?!’
‘Well... we've also laughed a lot... and... we had a very good mark in our assignment... appart from the fact that I frightened you... and... I don't know...’
‘Well, yes that’s true, not everything has been bad.’ She smiles and stares at him. Lisa doesn’t know if she should tell him... ‘Greg... I’ve to tell you something...’
‘ Hmm you... I...’ Lisa changes her mind in the last second. ‘Well, I think you’re a jerk (a sexy jerk okay), and a pimp, but I know that you’re a good guy. I don’t know if I’ll see you again but I won’t forget you.’
Now it’s his turn, he has to open up a bit to her. ‘Hmm... thanks? I think you've standed me very well all this time, you're nice, funny, and beautiful and... I'll miss you too.’
‘Thank you.’ She blushesca little and approaches to give him a hug. Greg hugs her. He’d like this moment could last forever, so does sher, but sooner or later, it will have to be broken. ‘I think I should go to sleep...’
He nods and they get separated. ‘Okay... see you tomorrow I guess... you’re sleeping nextdoor, aren’t you?’
‘William is sleeping nextdoor, not me...’
‘So you're not sleeping with him...’
‘No... I think he is old enough for not be afraid of ghosts...’
He chuckles. ‘Okay. I will see you tomorrow, Lis.’
William hears her going our of Greg’s room and looks at the time. ‘What the hell is she doing there?’ He stands up to looks out of the door, and sees her in the hallway walking to her room. He closes the door and lies on bed again.
When Lisa gets to her room, falls asleep very quickly trying not to think of Greg, but William.
When Cuddy leaves his room, Greg puts on his pajamas and lies on the bed, thinking of her and their goodnight hug.
