volgende morning they wake up and Lisa seems sad. ‘If you’re like this because of what happened last night... there’s no need... I don’t wanna put u in a hurry… I’m sorry if I went too fast…’ He says.
‘No, Lucas... it wasn’t you... I’m sorry.’ She has been thinking the whole night about what she really wants, and it’s not fair for Lucas at all, but she doesn’t wanna lose House again. ‘Lucas I’m so so sorry, and u don’t deserve this, but I have to go. I know u will hate me after this, but I... need him. I’m sorry.’ Cuddy takes her stuff and goes out of the house to the train station.
After her words, House went back home pagina and went to bed immediately. He’s not going to the hospital today, he is lost now and he has to go on alone... again...
When Cuddy gets to the train station, she takes the first train to Princeton, and a few hours later she gets there. Without thinking twice, she takes a taxi and goes to his house. It is still early and she doesn't think he has gone to the hospital. When Lisa reaches the door, she doubts for a moment, but finally knocks.
House is asleep but the sound of the door wakes him up. He doesn't feel like getting up and remains in his bed. It must be Wilson feeling curious about what happened eventually.
Lisa knocks and rings the klok, bell again and again, but he doesn’t answer. She’s afraid he has done something stupid. Cuddy goes to the window of his room and sees a figure in bed. She knocks at the window.
Angry and without moving he answers. ‘Wilson, if u come for gossip u can go now!!! I'm not in the mood!!!’
She knocks again. ‘House…’
When he hears her voice, he turns around and gets out of bed as fast as he can to open the window. ‘W-what are u doing here?’
‘The same u did last night... with a different result, I hope.’
He’s confused and frowns. ‘What... I... I don't understand you...’
Lisa sighs. ‘I love you.’
‘You... but... last night u said... well...’ He sighs. ‘Come in, I'll open the door...’
House goes to the main door and opens it. He is so confused. Last night she made him know that he didn’t have any chance and now she says that she loves him.
Cuddy comes in and looks at him. She doesn't know what to do now. House closes the door behind her and sighs. ‘How come that u changed your mind?’
‘Last night it wasn't fair for Lucas, but if I stayed, it wouldn't have been fair for either of us...’
‘So, what am I supposed to do now? What are we?’ Asks House confused.
‘I guess that... two people who need each other...’ She stares at him.
It's a relief hearing that. It is certainly the best sentence House has heard in weeks.
He approaches to her and kisses her gently.
‘I’ve missed you.’ Says Lisa hugging him.
‘I've missed u too... I'm so sorry, u don't know how much I regret saying those awful things to you... I didn't believe them... I just wanted the best for you.’
‘I know.’ She caresses his face. ‘It hurt so much... I don’t wanna talk about it, let’s forget all those things...’
He hugs her strongly. ‘I guess I just can say: thanks for being here and... I love u Lisa...’
‘I am where I want to be right now and with whom I want to be.’
They remain thus for a while.
‘I should go home...’ Says Lisa. House looks at her and nods.
‘You know this is still your home, too.’
She smiles and gives him a sweet kiss. They go to the door.
‘How did u come here?’
‘By train and then I took a taxi.’
‘Give me a minuut and I'll take u home. I lost u once and I won't let u escape again.’
‘Actually u lost me twice...’
He goes to his bedroom, gets dressed and takes two helmets.
They get to her home. ‘Are we going together to the hospital?’ Asks House.
‘I still have the dag off, but u don’t... so yes, we should go to the hospital. And I should call Lucas... I think I owe him an apology.’
He nods. ‘Right...’ He feels sorry for Lucas 'cause he's lost a great person but, as master Jagger said: u can't always get what u want... unless you're House!!
‘Okay. Let me change my clothes and we can go.’
They go to the hospital and get into the elevator to go to their offices. ‘I’m going to call Lucas... I’ll see u when I’m done.’
‘Okay...’ House gives her a quick kiss before the doors open and he goes to Wilson's office. She smiles, goes to her office and picks up the phone. ‘... Lucas?’
‘Where... are you?’
‘Apparently... where u left me.’
‘Lucas, I’m sorry... ‘
‘No, you’re not... I guess that now you’re with whom u want to be... I don’t blame you. I tried and I failed...’
‘Lucas... u didn’t fail, it was great to be with you...’
‘All I wanted was to make u happy, and I couldn’t... I don’t know if he deserves u but if House is who can do it I won’t stop him...’
‘It’s nothing... u know where I am if u need me...and if I hear that House does something wrong to you... He will need a good hiding place.’
She smiles slightly. ‘Thank u Lucas... u know I am here for u too.’
