Chapter 16: ready for a new chapter? be sure to be 18 years old before reading it, I tried to be gentle and not to expressive but…. Enjoy and leave comments.
It’s 12.45 am, House is waiting for Cuddy in front of the hospital, sitting on a bench. He’s lost in his thought and a smile hovers on his lips, he thinks of Cuddy, of Rachel, of what they mean in his life, he knows that this time he has no right to make mistakes: it puts him under stress and stimulates him at the same time, but he’s more motivated than ever because he doesn’t want to lose them one more time. He needs them in his life, especially Cuddy, and he’s determined to keep them with him. And he knows that Cuddy wants it too, wants him more than ever too, and just this makes him happy and a better man.
A gentle laughter escapes his mouth as he thinks again about the pillow fight of the morning with Wilson and Rachel. When he and the little girl arrived early in the morning at his apartment – after they got some pirate’s props - , Wilson was still sleeping on the couch.
-Listen to me ship’s girl Funnyface, he murmurs to Rachel. Look! he adds in a low voice and shows the couch with his sleeping friend. Here’s the ship of Sir Wilson the brave, he has stolen our treasure – a treasure of chocolate cookies and lollipops- and we have to get it back.
Rachel nods and giggles, she loves playing the pirate with House. Okay, Daddy!
-Good! We’re going to near slowly and silently the ship, then I go to the right and you go to the left, House keeps on and shows with his hand the direction to be sure that Rachel understands. Once we surrounded it, we fire at Wilson the brave rubber balls, then you jump on him with your cutlass and I try to catch him. Ok?
-Yes! Rachel answers with a big smile and very excited to storm Uncle Wilson.
-So let’s go!
House and Rachel near slowly Wilson, who woke up a few minutes ago and heard them talking. He waits for them to attack him and is ready to counter attack with his pillow.
-Now, Funnyface! Fire at Sir Wilson! shouts House and begins to throw his rubber balls on Wilson’s face. This one responds to House with his pillow, jumps out of the couch with a scary cry and tries to avoid the balls. He manages to reach the kitchen where he finds some eggs to fire at House and Rachel. But the little girl manages to near him and to hit him with her cutlass, Wilson tries to escape but House catches him, knocks him over, Rachel jumps on his chest and Sir Wilson begs for mercy and admits his defeat.
Rachel laughed and was very happy, House’s heart melted, he’s so happy to have her and Cuddy in the city, next to him. This time he won’t fail, he’ll prove to Cuddy that he’s the man she wants, the man she needs, a father for Rachel, he’ll show her that he deserves her.
House doesn’t notice the man who observes him hidden behind a tree. A few minutes pass and Cuddy goes out. She looks around her and sees him. She heads toward him her hips waving gracefully. House remains sat appreciating the show with the glance of an expert.
-Stop! he exclaims. Cuddy stops surprised.
-I need to catch my breath and my eyes need to recover from a wonderful shine…, he says with a sexy smile.
-House! she replies and rolls her eyes before sitting down close to him. He puts then his arm around her shoulders and she puts her head against his chest. They remain so in silence for a few minutes, then he says in a mysterious tone:
-May I suggest something?
-Yes, she replies and looks at him.
-We have two, well three options right now.
-Three options? House, don’t forget that I’m working and that I have not a lot of time…
-But you’re the boss! I’m sure that nobody will say anything if you take a few hours for the lunch…, he adds staring at her.
-A few hours!! House, I can’t! It’s my first day as Dean of Medicine here, I have to be beyond reproach! I can’t allow me to…
-Stop! Listen to me and don’t waste your…hm our precious time. She nods. I explain you the different options: first, we go in a restaurant, eat and then you come back to work – well, that’s the one I like the least. Second, we go to me, I undress you and we make love passionately – I love this one. And third, we go to me, I undress you, we make love passionately and then we eat – I love this one too, he adds with a smile, but it takes more time. Which one do you choose?
-Well, I am … hungry, she says the eyes full of lust.
-Hungry? He replies with a smile and caresses her cheek. Do you hunger for a … sausage? She rolls her eyes and chokes a laughter. A “House” made sausage, of course! he adds his eyes glittering with desire. Cuddy bursts out of laugh.
-I think you’re right - as usual – I choose the third option, she gives him a soft kiss, gets up, takes his hand in hers and adds: Let’s go, pretty sexy boy! House looks at her, smiles, gets up and follows her to his car.
Neither Cuddy, nor House has noticed MacEnzie. He was behind a tree and observed them. He’s angry, very angry and jealous. House, he thinks, I won’t let you take me Cuddy, she’s mine now, last night was so wonderful, it was like a dream but I know she loves me, she’s the most incredible woman I’ve ever known and she just goes with you because you scare her, she doesn’t dare to say “no” to you, but don’t worry my Cuddy, I’m going to free you from this madman. And tonight you will be with me and I will comfort you, and House will never bother you again.
On the way to his apartment, House asks Cuddy:
-By the way, can you tell me now what MacEnzie did last night and why you had to sedate him?
-Well… It’s nothing, he… forget it.
-No, Cuddy, no, I won’t forget it, tell me, I want to know, I need to know…, he says and gives her a quick look.
-Okay, she sighs, but promise me you won’t do him anything!
-Last night, MacEnzie was … too much… insistent with me…
-What did he do exactly? House asks trying to contain his anger.
-He… he put his hands around my waist and wanted to dance – she sees how House clenches his fist and how he tenses up- … and when I “escaped” his embrace he took my hand to hold me, but that’s all, House, she adds quickly.
-Really? Did you tell me all the truth, Cuddy?
-I swear House! Nothing happened!
-So why did you sedate him?
-Because… because I was afraid that he comes during the night… and harasses me again! Then I remembered you gave me these sleeping pills and… you know what happened then, she says but doesn’t dare to look at him. She knows how he feels, she knows he’s jealous, angry at MacEnzie and at himself because he left her alone with this guy, because he wasn’t there for her, he wasn’t there to protect her against this moron. House, House, she says softly. You don’t have to feel guilty, it’s not your fault! You warned me! And I didn’t listen to you. Please, House, talk to me!
-I … I don’t know what to say Cuddy, I’m … I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have left you with him. I… I’m going to talk to Wilson, we’ll find a solution, I’ll pay him the hotel… but one thing is sure, you won’t spend another night in his house! he replies and takes her hand, staring at her.
-Okay, she says and squeezes his hand. Are you living here? she adds showing a small building.
-Yes. I hope you’re still hungry…
-More than ever…
-Then just follow me… he replies in an evocative tone.
He opens the door and they get in a spacious room with wide windows.
-What happened here? Cuddy exclaims.
-Hmm, well, don’t pay attention on the disorder, we delivered a naval fight this morning, he replies and scratches his head a little embarrassed.
-Really, she adds with a smile.
-Yes, and your little pirate wasn’t the sweetest, believe me! He laughs and Cuddy smiles at him, she loves when he’s laughing.
-I’d love to listen to that great battle.
-Right now? Can’t you wait … ? Cuddy smiles and rolls her eyes. Ok, I tell you briefly because I have other thing in mind, if you see what I mean… he adds giving her a seductive glance. So Captain Crankypants and ship’s girl Funnyface had located the boat of Sir Wilson the brave and had decided to attack it at dawn. They neared silently the ship, surrounded it and when the Captain gave the signal, they stormed Sir Wilson who jumped in the air so scared he was! We fired rubber balls at him. He tried then to escape in the kitchen where he found some eggs that this traitor fired at us but finally we took him prisoner and he had to admit his defeat! House says with a triumphant smile and jumps next to Cuddy who looks at him with happiness in the eyes.
-And where is the little mermaid?
-With Wilson the brave and Princess Kate.
-Well, I hope that the captain isn’t too tired…, she says and begins to unbutton his shirt. House puts his hands on her hips and draws her close to him. He leans and kisses softly her ear, then her neck, he smells her scent and deepens his kiss. She takes his shirt off and caresses his chest, arching against him under his kiss, shivering under the caress of his hands that are going slowly down and up on her back, pulling her even closer to him. House, she says in a breath. Cuddy, he moans as she brushes her lips on his neck, then on his mouth. He undresses her slowly while her tongue finds its way through his lips and begins a sensual dance with his tongue. They only stop kissing to catch their breath back, he takes her in his arms and carries her to the bedroom.
-I missed your touch, I missed to feel your skin on mine, I missed your kiss, your lips, your hands on me, I missed you so much House, she says and drags him on top of her, kissing him eagerly.
-I missed you too, Cuddy, he says smiling against her lips, kissing her deeply, pressing against her. His hands caress every part of her gorgeous body, he licks her neck, her nipples, her belly and her moans fill him with desire. She arches under his tongue, she presses her against him, she’s short of breath, she takes his head in her hands and combs her fingers through his hair, House, House! Please… I love you Cuddy, I want you all, say you’re mine, Cuddy! he moans as Cuddy’s hands grab little Greg and massage it softly. I’m yours, House, she pants out, say it again, he repeats kissing her deeply, going inside her to make one with her, I’m … yours, she says biting his under lip, pressing her hips against his, moving in rhythm with her lover, intertwined with him, their bodies making one until they reach their climax. House wants to go out of her but she stops him:
-Please, don’t… I’d like to feel you inside me a few minutes more. As an answer, he kisses her softly and she deepens the kiss once again. Finally she lets him go and they lay close to each other on the bed for a while, trying to catch their breath back and to calm down their desire.
-And now what? he asks wrapping his arms around her waist, drawing her against him and kissing her neck.
-Hm… I think I have to get dress and go to work…, she replies and turns her head to him.
-I knew it!
-I knew you’d say that… I shouldn’t have asked…
-Don’t be so upset, House!
-I don’t want you to go… I want you to spend the rest of the day with me, he says and looks at her tenderly, caressing her cheek.
-And I want it too, but…
-I know, you have to go!
-Hm, before I go… You said a few hours earlier that you have something to eat here.
-Are you hungry? he asks surprised.
-Yes! All this “bedroom sport” gave me hunger.
-And I’m supposed to be the least romantic here! he replies smiling. I’m going to fix lunch.
