Chapter 15: sometimes I think I’m evil, but I hope you’ll forgive me. Enjoy this new chapter, and sorry if it’s short, next one is almost over.
The room is dark, there is no noise, only her breath drills the silence. MacEnzie feels weird, a little dizzy. Suddenly, she moves in the bed, he roots to the spot, but phew! It was a false alarm, she still sleeps. She’s so beautiful, simply breathtaking, he thinks and nears her very slowly, he doesn’t want her to wake up. His blood runs faster in his body, his heart beats faster in his chest. He sits down in the bed next to her and remains so one moment to contemplate her. Then he caresses softly her cheek first, then her neck and his hand is about to caress her left breast when she wakes up. He smiles at her and leans over; his face is now just over hers.
-Hey, sleeping beauty, don’t worry, it’s me your prince Charming, he says in a soft voice and caresses her cheek. She smiles and puts her hand on his neck, drags him on top of her. His lips brush hers, she kisses him deeply, he presses against her, slowly caressing every part of her, he can feel her desire, her tongue dueling with his, her hands on his body and it drives him insane, he never wanted a woman as much as he wants Cuddy. And no one can take her away from him.
Bip! Bip! Bip! 6. AM.
-Hmmm, a new day begins; I just hope it will be great, Cuddy thinks and switches the alarm clock off. She slept well and feels ready for the long day ahead of her. She strains her ears but hears no noise. Perfect! The stupid and annoying Casanova still sleeps, this isn’t surprising given the dose of sleeping pills which she gave him last night. She smiles, gets up, makes her session of yoga, then takes a shower, dresses up and goes to wake Rachel up. The little girl is already woken and plays with her wubby.
-Mommy! Can we go to House?
-Morning, Rachel, Cuddy says and kisses Rachel’s forehead.
-Morning, mommy, but is House here?
-Rachel! House is probably still sleeping! I’m going to dress you, then we’ll have breakfast…
-And we go to House! exclaims the little girl jumping around Cuddy with a big smile.
-Yes, then we take a taxi to go to House, but you have to promise to be very kind with Uncle Wilson and House, Cuddy replies with a smile. Her two friends suggested to take care of Rachel until the weekend while Cuddy begins her new job as Dean of Medicine of the Apton Hospital. Then a nurse called Jessie will take care of her during the day. Let’s go to the kitchen and have breakfast, but shhh, Dr. MacEnzie is still sleeping, Cuddy adds and puts a finger on her mouth, and we don’t want to wake him up, do we?. The little girl giggles, she likes doing “secret” things with her mother.
If Cuddy slept well, House didn’t. He couldn’t sleep so worried about Cuddy he was.
-I shouldn’t have left her alone with this guy, he repeated endlessly last night to Wilson, I’m sure he can be dangerous.
-House! She’s a big girl! She knows how to get rid of such gigolo! Don’t worry, come and drink a beer with me. There’s a race of monster trucks on TV, Wilson replies. But he’s not so sure that Cuddy can defend herself if MacEnzie really tries to seduce her. He remembers that MacEnzie seemed very interested by Cuddy, he always asked about her, about what she likes, what she dislikes… And he had a strange expression in the eyes when he talked about her.
-Wilson! Don’t be stupid! You saw this guy! Can you assert me that you trust him? House asks annoyed.
-Well… Maybe … I don’t know… But why did you leave her there if you’re so worried!
-You know Cuddy! When she decides something, you should rather get up early to make her change her mind! Do you think I should go to MacEnzie to see if she’s fine?
-House! You’ve just talked to her! She said she was fine and was about to sleep! Try to relax and enjoy the race!
-She had a strange voice on the phone, she seemed to be relieved that I called. There’s something weird, Wilson, House replies and paces around the room.
-House! Will you please sit down! You give me a headache!
-Then take a sleeping pill and go to sleep! We have a mission tomorrow! Take care and play with a little pirate full of energy!
-Yeah, you’re right, it’s just that…
-I know, House, you care about her and you’re worried because she was a little uneasy to stay for two days by MacEnzie, but I’m sure that she and Rachel are fine and that they’re sleeping … lucky girls! Wilson adds and yawns.
About 3 AM Wilson gives up and falls asleep. But House can’t and remains the whole night thinking of Cuddy and of MacEnzie, jealousy and anxiety keep him awake and drive him crazy.
-Rachel, eat your cereals, please or you’ll be too tired to play with House and Wilson, Cuddy says.
-But they’re not good, mommy!
Forget your trouble, com’on get happy… Who can call so early in the morning! Cuddy exclaims and rolls her eyes when she sees who calls.
-House! You know what time it is! she exclaims and pretends to be angry at him.
-Yes, it’s 7.15 AM and I was sure that you and the little mushroom would be woken…
-And may I know why you’re calling? she replies in a softer voice.
-Hm, I … I just want to know if you’re fine and if you want me to come to drive you to the hospital, he says and feels a little idiot. Cuddy seems amused and fine. Wilson was right, he loses his self control when it comes about Cuddy.
-Oh, I see, and it’s not because you were worried about me and Rachel, I suppose, she says ironically. But deep in her heart she’s touching because it shows that House really cares.
-Well… no, why should I’ve been worried? You were just sleeping in the same house as a dangerous pervert, and that’s not a problem because you’re such an ugly woman that nobody dares to jump you, especially because of your big ass… he adds with a smile.
-You see, no reason to get mad and to worry…, she replies and smiles. … It’s good to hear your voice, House, she adds.
-I come and take you in 10 minutes, get ready!
And 10 minutes later, House arrives and finds Cuddy and Rachel waiting for him in front of MacEnzie’s house. Cuddy wears her dark suit and he can see that she has a white top, she looks wonderful and House feels desire overrunning his body.
-House! Rachel shouts and gets in the car with a big smile.
-Hey, little pirate! Ready to storm Uncle Wilson’s ship?
-Oh yes! the little girl replies and giggles.
Then House turns to Cuddy who looks at him and smiles.
-Hey, sexy girl! How are you? I see that you survived in this evil house! Did you miss me? he says with a lovely smiles.
-Hm, let me think of it… You were not there with me? I didn’t even notice your were somewhere else. Certainly because this MacEnzie is so nice and so sweet! she says with a smile and teasing him.
-And where is he?
-Hm…He’s sleeping…, she answers a little embarrassed and looks at the ground.
-Was the evening so tiring? House asks in a tone in which Cuddy hears some jealousy.
-Well, … sometimes some activities are exhausting you know…, she replies and gives him a glance full of lust.
-Well, if you want I can let you here with him, I take Rachel with me so you can be alone with your new toy boy, he replies angry and with eyes full of jealousy.
-House! I was kidding! I am teasing you! This man is a moron who thinks he’s a Don Juan and can have all the women he wants…, she says irritated.
House smiles and tells her ironically: Wow! And you didn’t fall for such a God of sex! Are you sick?
-House! That’s not funny! He almost scared me last night…, she adds in a sulky tone.
-Really? House replies seriously and worried. What did he do? Tell me!
-Not now, House, I don’t want that Rachel worries. House looks at her and sees her fear. But don’t worry, everything is fine thanks your birthday gift, she adds in a soft voice and caresses gently his cheek. House looks at her surprised.
-My birthday gift? Did I offer you something? I can’t remem… oh yes! I get it! No…, Cuddy, you didn’t…, he adds with a smile and shining eyes. He’s so proud of his girlfriend.
-Yes, I did, she replies with a smirk and gives him a lovely gaze.
-This man will pay to have mistreated you, he mutters. Then he starts the car.
Once in front of the hospital, he parks the car.
-Do you want me to go with you?
-No…, thank you.
-You’re welcome, he replies with a smile.
-I’d like you to have lunch with me…, she says and gives him a tender look.
-Of course. I come at 1 pm. Have a nice morning sweety…, he adds and takes her hand.
-See ya…, she says and gets out of the car, then she walks around the car and comes to his side, bends over the window and gives him a soft kiss. House tries to deepen the kiss but she steps back and goes to the hospital not without giving him a seductive glance. He follows her with the eyes, turns to Rachel who looks at him intrigued and asks with a smile:
-So! Little pirate, ready to wake up Uncle Wilson? I’ve got a plan…
-Yes! Yes! Yes! Rachel replies delighted at the idea of waking Wilson.
-Let’s go first buy some rubber balls, some rope, two pirate’s hats and two cutlasses!
