Some days go by and Cuddy has to take another pregnancy test. House is sitting on the sofa waiting for her to come out of the bathroom. She goes out and sits next to him. ‘Okay, let’s do it again.’
‘Fingers crossed... I have a good feeling today...’ House says.
‘Hope you’re right...’ She lies her head on his shoulder. ‘I’m starting to lose hope...’
‘Don't worry... it will come sooner or after...’
She sighs and they wait in silence for some minutes. Greg hugs her and rubs her arm sweetly but he is very nervous for the results. The alarm clock sounds. ‘Here we go again... I don’t know if I want to see it...’
‘Surprise me!!’ House says covering his eyes with his hands.
‘Oh God... I... I...’
He moves his hands. ‘Are we pregnant??’
‘I... YES!’ She looks at him very excited.
‘Woah, get that!!!’ They hug strongly.
‘Wake me up please...’ Lisa says.
‘Sometimes reality is better than dreams.’ He kisses her sweetly and then approaches to her belly and talk. ‘You agree with me, uh?’
Lisa smiles. She feels idiot, but she is so, so happy, she can’t believe it. ‘Oh Greg this is really... I’m speechless... I can’t say how I feel.’ Cuddy hugs him again.
‘You see? We made it!!!’
‘Yes! This is our year...’
He chuckles. ‘I'll go and buy a lottery ticket!!’
‘Maybe later, you're not going anywhere. I want you to stay with me... us.’ Greg smiles and gives her a kiss. Then he touches her belly softly. ‘You have to take care of me... more than until now, I mean.’ She smiles.
‘Oh, no!! I don't know if I'll be able to do it, that's so much work for me...’
She chuckles. ‘I know you're very hard-worker.’
‘Of course I am!!’
He smiles at her and gives her a kiss.
Some weeks pass by and they haven’t told anyone, not even Wilson, in case things go wrong and they lose the baby. Her belly is starting to grow and she can't wear tight clothes. Greg has been wonderful these days, always worried about her.
One day it's early in the morning and House wakes up. He sees her sleeping and feel so happy. Then he stares at her belly. It's not very big yet, but it's starting to be noticeable that something's going on inside. He approaches to her belly, lies his head softly on it and closes his eyes. Cuddy wakes up and looks at him but she doesn’t move.
‘It is amazing, isn’t it? There’s something alive inside me.’ She caresses his hair.
‘Yeah... it's... magic...’ House says without moving
‘I can’t believe we’re gonna be parents.’
He smiles and lies his head on the pillow again. ‘Well, you'd better start to believe it...’ He gives her a kiss. She smiles, takes his hand and puts it on her belly.
‘I think we can tell Wilson already, sorry, Uncle Wilson.’ They chuckle.
‘Yeah... unless you want him to punish us forever...’
‘Yes... The sooner the better. We can tell him today at work.’
‘Sure, sounds good to me.’
That afternoon after work, they go to Wilson’s office. ‘Would you like to come to have a drink or something?’ Lisa asks.
‘You pay, of course...’ Says House to his friend.
‘You're always so nice, House...’ Answers Wilson, and Lisa rolls her eyes.
They go to a bar and ask for their drinks.
‘So...’ James says sipping. ‘Nice day, uh?’
‘We want to tell you something...’
‘Bad or Worse?’
‘Greg... can you...?’ Lisa asks.
‘I wanna be a woman and I'll get my genitals removed... will you marry me when the procedure is finished? And don't worry about Lisa, she's a lesbian...’
Wilson chokes and coughs. ‘O-Oh that’s--’ He lifts one eyebrow. ‘--very you... But sorry, I’m looking for a Mrs. Wilson a bit more... feminine.’ He sips.
Wilson chokes with his drink again and coughs. ‘Are you serious? You’re finally having a baby?’ He looks at House smiling very happy. ‘Good job, man.’
‘Thanks, it was very hard. Having sex the whole day, visiting her ass in the office... I will never do it again!!!’
Cuddy looks at House. ‘Yes, it's true, now funny part comes. Changing diapers, waking up in the middle of the night…’
‘Oh God, I just can't wait for it!!!’ House answers ironically. The three chuckle and House puts his arm on her shoulder. Wilson smiles at both.
‘Congratulations, you're gonna be a great mother Cuddy. And you...’ He looks at House. ‘You, too! I'm sure.’
‘And when we need to rest… or some privacy, we’ll have Uncle Wilson to take care of our baby for a while.
Wilson laughs. ‘Of course I'll be there for you.’
‘Thank you, we’ll need you.’
They stay there for some time, smiling, laughing, remembering when they were kids…
Finally it looks like things are going well. Some times you can get what you want.
