The next morning they get dressed and walk to the house’s door. Greg breathes deeply. ‘Well... here we go...’
Cuddy smiles at him. ‘You’re gonna be alright.’
They go out and get into the car to go to the hospital. When they get there, they go to the elevator and people stare at them. She didn’t say anything about their relationship while he was in a coma, but it was obvious that they weren’t just old friends.
‘Love the feeling of being observed...’
‘Yes... it's really nice...’ They go to Lisa’s office and he sits down.
‘Well...?’ Asks House.
‘Okay, I don't want you to be alone today, right? So or Wilson or I will be with you... you okay with that?’
‘So... you don't trust me...’ Says him frowning.
‘No, no, no, of course I trust you, but I feel better if someone is with you today. It's your first day of work...’
‘I don't blame you... I don't trust myslef... Okay, I'll have a babysitter while I'm here...’
‘Greg... it’s just... today... I want you to be alright.’ He looks at her and nods. ‘So... you agree?’
Wilson goes to the office sees them and knocks at the door. ‘Am I interrupting something?’
‘No, no, James, come in. I was telling Greg what I told you yesterday, that I don’t want him to be alone today... And I have a meeting now... so can you be together until lunch time?’
‘Yes, sure, I'll be with him, I'm not having a stressful morning today...’ Says Wilson.
‘Okay, thanks Wilson. Well... I’m late...’ She approaches to Greg and whispers. ‘I love you.’ Lisa gives him a quick kiss on his lips. Wilson tries not to look at them when she kisses him, awww but they look so cute together! ‘See you later, at lunch time.’
She goes out of her office and James looks at Greg. ‘Are you upset? She just want the best for you... she really cares about you, House...’
‘I know... but I'm the great disappointer... I understand you don't trust me, I don't even trust myself either.’
‘We do trust you House...’ They stay in silence for a while looking around. ‘Well let’s do some clinic hours until lunch time.’
‘Oh no!! Clinic hours with you... I'd rather be dead!!!’ Jokes House, then stands up and walks to the door with his friend.
After some time, they finish their clinic duty, lunch time comes, and they walk to the cafeteria where they meet Cuddy. ‘Are you hungry?’ Asks Wilson approaching to her table.
‘You kidding? I'm starving!!’ Greg looks at her. ‘Hey...’
‘Hi, how was the meeting?’ Says James while they sit down.
‘Oh good... well, boring, you know... And how are you? What have you been doing?’
‘We've been working in agony... doing clinic hours...’ Exaggerates House.
‘Oh did you?’ Lisa looks at Wilson surprised. ‘Did he??’
‘Then you're worst than I thought...’ Jokes Lisa. ‘So, was Greg a good boy?’
‘Ohh of course! Am I gonna have my candy now, mom?’
‘Hmmm... do you deserve it?’
‘Of course I do!! I've been working very hard today!!’
She chuckles. ‘Okay, get your candy.’
‘My candy... here...’ Greg looks around.
‘What kind of candy are you thinking about?’ She frowns and smiles.
He whispers. ‘I'd better tell you at home when Wilson's not in front of us.’ He winks at her exaggeratedly.
‘Oh my God...’ Wilson’s beeper beeps. ‘Whoops... Just in time.’ James smiles. ‘I gotta go, have fun.’ He winks before leaving.
Lisa chuckles and looks at Greg. ‘I have to finish some paperwork and then we can go home. Let's go to my office.’
They go to Cuddy’s office. ‘Okay, take a seat, and you can help me if you want.’
‘If I want... that sentence makes it optional...?’
She looks at him seriously. ‘Hmmm that "candy" would be better...’
‘Thank God I feel so helpful today!!!’ Says Greg taking a file.
‘Oh really?’ She smirks. ‘Perfect, so I can abuse you as much as I want today then. You can start suffering reviewing those documents of former patients, please.’
‘I guess I could... I hope that "candy" deserves this!!!’ She hands him in more files and they work for two more hours.
‘Are you tired?’ Asks Cuddy
‘Do I get bonus points if I say “no”?’
‘No, because I'm already tired, and you don't want me to be tired, do you?’
‘Of course not!!!’ Says him loudly.
She laughs. ‘So... shall we go? I can continue with this tomorrow.’
‘Yep... let's get out of here.’
Some time later they get to her home and leave their things. ‘Oh I have something for you by the way.’
He frowns. ‘Really?’
‘Yep, wait here one second.’ She goes to the living room, takes something and goes back where he is. ‘Is a copy of my home’s keys...’
House stares at the keys. ‘Thanks...’
‘You’re welcome...’ Lisa stares at him doubtful. ‘It’s... okay?’
‘Y-yeah... sure...’ He smiles at her and takes the keys. Lisa smiles back at him a approaches a bit more.
‘Well, I think that what you really want is something like this...’ She kisses him.
‘Oh, I was starting to be scared that this was the only gift I'd get today...’ Jokes House, and returns the kiss.
She chuckles. ‘Idiot.’ Ans kisses him again. ‘We should eat something before your "candy" thing...’
They go to the kitchen and she convinces him to cook.
‘You're blackmailing the blackmailer!!!’ Says Greg and takes the meal to the table.
‘I know, and I like it.’ They start eating. ‘Hmmm this is so good.’
‘I'm the King of the kitchen... among other house's rooms...’
She chuckles. ‘Yes, you are...’ They eat in silence enjoying the meal.
‘You like it? I mean, seriously...’
‘Yes, really, you're a great cook.’
When they finish, she stands up and does the dishes.
‘Sorry I don't help you... I have been enough abused today...’ Says House smirking at her.
‘For now...’ She chuckles.
‘Don't play games with me!!!’
She finishes and approaches to him with her hands wet, puts them on his face and gets a bit closer to give him a kiss.
‘I know.’ She smiles and he kisses her. ‘You’ve been a good boy today.’
‘Do not push your luck!!’ Jokes him.
‘Don't screw it up now...’ He chuckles and pulls her near, then he kisses her again.
‘So you're finally getting your "candy", you're lucky Wilson is not around now.’
‘Are you sure he's not hidden somewhere??’ Jokes House and looks around.
‘I’m pretty sure...’
‘Great!!’ He kisses her again and they walk out of the kitchen. His leg starts to annoy him slightly but he doesn't pay too much attention. While they are walking they trip with a chair and he hits his leg. ‘Oh damn!! Are you okay?’
‘Ouhh... yeah, yeah... no problem...’ She looks at him worried.‘It's nothing...’ Says House, but actually it hurts...
They walk towards the bedroom and lie on the bed. She unintentionally presses a little his leg while is kissing him.
‘Hmm, hey... be careful...’
‘I-I'm sorry... sure you're okay?’
‘Hmmm. Yeah... I... think.’ Answers him doubtful, but his leg is really hurting.
‘You need... to rest?’
‘No... I'm fine... Come here.’ He smiles and tries not to think about the pain. She nods and they kiss sweetly while they take off their clothes and get into bed.
