Lisa Cuddy came to Michigan a few days ago and today it’s her first day of collage at the University of Michigan. She’s very excited about it. It’s the first time she’s going away from her family and friends for such a long time, but Lisa it's completely convinced about what she wants to do with her future, and she wants to become a great doctor.
Now let’s talk about Greg House. Who doesn’t know him at university? With just twentysomething years old, he is one of the promises of the campus. He has a brilliant mind and a particular acidic sense of humor. Although there are people who can't stand him, nobody can deny that he’s a real genius.
Lisa has Endocrinology class, and wanders through the aisles, desperate, looking for the classroom. Suddenly a guy runs into her and hits her shoulder with his. Of course that guy is none other but Greg House, who keeps running because not even the first day he can get there on time. Lisa touches her shoulder and shouts while he goes away. ‘Hey! I’m okay, thanks for asking!’
Some minutes later Lisa gets to Endocrinology class, blushed and trying to go unnoticed, she sits in the nearest empty seat. The guy next to her whispers.
‘Did you get here on your own? Or did you have to consult a map?’
Then she realizes who is that guy. ‘I got here on my own, thank you. Having people like you here giving directions it's so helpful, you know?’
‘My job it's not giving directions... If you have a dreadful sense of direction it's not my fault.’
‘I'm sure when you got here in your first year you couldn't find your classes with both hands and a map... By the way, aren't you a bit old to be here? This is first year Endocrinology...’
‘I failed Endocrinology. I have to take a re-sit exam and yes, I'm clever enough to find where my classrooms were.’
‘But you're not clever enough to pass a first year Endocrinology exam? What grade are you?’ She mocks at him kidding. ‘You're going bald...’
‘Ha-ha. I just stopped attending the classes and this is my last year if I pass this fucking subject!!’
The professor hears his last words and stares at him. House starts drawing in his notebook to avoid his look. ‘Mr House could you and your mate shut up or get out of the classroom, please?’
Cuddy looks at the table in silence while House smiles exaggeratedly at him. ‘With pleasure!!’
The class ends and Cuddy goes to look for a room in a student residence in some college newspapers. Finally she finds a place and the owner and her are gonna meet in the cafeteria. On her way there, she sees House talking to his friends.
‘... and she was completely lost, she looked a bit silly but she's hot stuff!!’
Cuddy hears him and approaches decisively to him. ‘Can you come for a moment?’
‘Hmm... let me think... no!!’
He laughs with his friends and she smiles. ‘Okay... this is a little aggressive, I just wanted to tell you privately, so your friends wouldn't find out, to fasten the zipper of your jeans.’ He stared at her surprised and she smiles widely. ‘Nice pants by the way.’
Cuddy winks at him and keeps going to the cafeteria. House zippers up his jeans a bit embarrassed and shouts to her. ‘We can come to an agreement if you're very interested in my underpants!!’
Cuddy smiles to herself and once in the cafeteria signs for her new dorm.
That afternoon Lisa picks up her stuff of her parent’s friend’s house where she has spent the last few days and goes to the residence. Once there, she opens the door and goes to her room. It’s pretty big, well furnished and she has plenty room for her books. She puts her stuff on the shelves and in the closet. When she finishes, she hears someone opening the door and going to the kitchen. Lisa goes to the kitchen and finds the fridge open, so she can’t see the other person. ‘Hi.’
House spits the fizzy drink he was taking in surprise. ‘What the hell are you doing here???’
He closes the door and Cuddy stares at him really surprised. ‘What? I live here, what are you doing here?’
‘You live here? I live here!!’
‘What??! You can't live here! Why??’
‘I've been living here for 5 years and I'm pretty sure you haven't been here for more than three hours!!’
‘I-I didn't know you lived here... I don't even know your name.’
Cuddy doesn’t know what to say. She can’t believe he lives there. ‘I-I'm Lisa...’
‘I didn't ask...’ He smiles wiedly and walks to the door next to her room.
‘Tell me at least your dorm is not next door...’
‘No, I sleep on the garden's grass... of course it is my room!! I was living alone until you came here.’
‘Oh come on! There are no more students living here? Am I gonna live alone with you?’
He opens his eyes widely. ‘Yesssssss!!’
Cuddy rolls her eyes and crossed her fingers. ‘Okay... if we’re gonna live together for a year... please, only a year... can we try to get along with each other?’
‘I'll try but don't promise anything.’
He gets into his dorm and closes his door. Lisa does the same and takes her book to study and take him out of her mind. Some minutes later, Greg turns on the radio with the volume very high. Lisa sighs, goes to his door and knocks.
‘Nobody’s here!!’ Shouts House from his room.
‘Can you put it lower? please!!!’
‘I can, but don't want to.’
‘Please, I’m trying to study a bit...’
‘You've just arrived from classes and yet you keep on studying??!!’
‘I have nothing better to do... and that’s my problem, I don't want to argue with you.’
House turns off the radio and opens the door standing in front of her. ‘Come on!! You don't have nothing better to do? This is university!! Go out and know people... have fun.’
‘I have things to do, I don’t leave everything until the last day.’
‘Good. Enjoy your evening, I'm going out...’ He gets out of his dorm and closes its door. She looks at him while he takes his keys and goes to the door.
‘Uh... if you come with someone... let me know. I don’t wanna be here if you are with a girl and drunk...’
‘Does it change if it's with two girls and they both are drunk but I'm sober?’
‘No... Just let me know if you come with someone...’
They spend the rest of the afternoon doing their stuff. Lisa stays at home, studies, talks to her parents and goes to sleep early. On the other hand, Greg goes to a party, drinks alcohol, flirts with girls, gets drunk... and finally gets to the residence trying not to make any noise, but he doesn’t succeed and lies on the floor with his legs on the bed. Lisa stands up to get a glass of water. On her way back, she sees House’s door ajar and knocks at it softly. ‘Are you okay?’
‘Hmmm... not really...’
She opens the door. ‘How much have you drunk?’
‘Me? Just a little bit... but my friends forced me to drink more, so technically, it was not me who was drinking...’
‘Yes, maybe, but it's you who is feeling sick now...’
‘Smart girl...’ He rubs his face and she sighs.
‘I’m going back to bed. You need something?’
‘A new stomach and liver... have some?’
‘Hmm yeah, let me take a look in my dorm...’ Says Lisa sarcastically and goes to her dorm locking her door. House crawls along to he dorm’s door and knocks.
‘Need a doctor... a future doctor will do too’
‘I can't do anything with a boozer. It's your problem if you don't know when to stop drinking. Go to sleep.’
‘Alright!!’ House lies down and spends their first night “together” asleep in front of her dorm’s door.
