Hey everyone! Thanks so much for the lovely reviews! This chapter wasn't originally going to be this long, but somehow I just kept typing;) I hope you enjoy it!
Italics are thoughts or flashbacks, I'm sure you'll figure out which is which;) Love you!
She was standing in front of her mirror, not really knowing what to wear, even though she knew it had to be white. ‘Hmm, little white dress and black lacy underwear, would he like that? What do you think Wolf-E?’ Wolf-E looked up at Lisa when he heard his name, but quickly went back to sleep. ‘He should like that he’s a man.’ A married man Lisa, a married man. ‘Who says married man don’t like that? He’s probably not even going to see it!’ Really? Then why bother putting it on at all?! Why not just go naked?
Wolf-E jumped or rather slided of her bed and tried to get Lisa’s attention by barking softly a few times. ‘O, I’m sorry Wolf-E I’ll fed and walk you and the others in a minute…’ Wolf-E didn’t seem content with that answer and barked again. ‘Alright, I’m just going to go with this then…’ She put on the small white dress, with the black underwear underneath it. She would definitely look hot when she was soaked...
After a really quick breakfast and a short walk with her dogs which she brought to her neighbor after ,she was ready to go to work. She grabbed her bag, which was full with all kinds of water blasters and very girly shower cream. Men, except for Jesse may be, hated to smell girly, so this was a perfect secret weapon. She also asked Jesse to bring walkie-talkie’s, she knew he had them and she didn’t want her phone to be soaked during her mission. She also thought they were way more fun to communicate with than ordinary phones.
Now she just had to find her keys. She vaguely remembered putting them on a desk in her bedroom. She walked into her bedroom and looked at her desk, which was crowded with paper, letters to be exact… It were letters she wrote to Hugh, but she did never have the guts to actually send them. She picked up one letter and when she saw the date she remembered February 2nd this year…
It would be a day full of interviews, a day of telling the paparazzi what they already knew, a boring day. At least that was what Hugh thought it would be. He would’ve much rather stayed home and play his piano and rest a little. He thought of calling in sick, but he knew it was too late when he heard his doorbell. He opened the door and there stood Lisa with a bright smile on her face. He stood there for a few seconds just watching her. She hadn’t asked him if she should pick him up, but they both knew that she had to otherwise he wouldn’t go.
‘You coming?’ She asked. ‘Yes, I’ll be right there. Just have to get my coat.’ He looked a little disorientated and she saw his eyes, they were really sad. She walked into his house and closed the door behind her. ‘Hugh, what’s wrong?’ she asked. He looked at her and saw the worry in her eyes. ‘It’s nothing. I’ll be okay.’ He didn’t like being whiny. She stepped closer to him, caught his hand and led him to the couch.
They sat down but he wouldn’t let go of her hand, it was comforting, it made him feel less alone. She watched him and stroke her thumb softly over his. ‘I don’t like seeing you so sad…’ she spoke quietly, ‘What happened?’. He sighed a little and with tears in his eyes he told her what he had kept inside for a few months. ‘It’s, you know, I just feel like all I am is a.. ehm.. a tool’ ‘A tool?’ ‘Yes, you know, people need me to do things, and they have fun because of me, but I feel like I don’t know I don’t have fun with them… I guess I just feel alone… My family lives thousands of miles away, but even when I am with them I feel alone. I mean my kids are all grown up and they have their own lives and I don’t want to interfere, so then I’m at home all day playing the piano or walking the dog… And Jo, she is great to our kids, and we do stuff together but it’s just not the stuff I would really want to do, we don’t have real fun together anymore…’ he said. He had taken his eyes away from her, he didn’t want her to see the hurt and loneliness in his eyes. ‘O Hugh, I’m sure she still wants to do that stuff with you. She loves you. And you have the right to interfere with your kids lives, you’re their father! I actually think they’d really love it to do something together. But for now I think we should focus on you having some fun, like today.’ He smiled at her, she really had a way with words. ‘So, ehm what were you planning on?’ he asked. ‘Well at least getting you of the couch!’ she said while she jumped of the couch. ‘Go ahead.’ He smirked while not moving a bit. ‘You really want ME to get YOU of the couch?’ she asked. ‘Well yes, although I doubt you can do that, I mean you’re a very small woman…’ he teased. It set her off just like he suspected and she begin pulling and pushing but Hugh didn’t move a bit. ‘Hugh, please?’ she asked. ‘Already giving up?’ he smiled devilishly. ‘Never!’ she said.
She knew she had to make a plan and soon! After a minute or so she smiled. This should work. She climbed on Hugh’s lap, wrapped her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck. Hugh blushed and gulped. ‘So how exactly is this going to get me of …’ ‘O Hugh, you naughty boy!’ Lisa interrupted him playfully. ‘the couch, of the COUCH!’ there was a little sparkle visible in his eyes now. Lisa pushed him down so they were now lying on top of each other on the couch. He smiled sweetly at her, he was completely mesmerized by her beauty, but before he knew it Lisa had rolled them both of the couch on the carpet. ‘Ouch! Jeez woman do you want to break my bones?’ he said. ‘O, stop whining! I want break your bones it’s not like you are 80 years old or are you?’ She laughed. ‘Oooh you are so in trouble now!’ He said while he rolled on top of her and took a pillow from the couch. ‘So you want to play dirty, don’t you?’ she asked him. His eyes where brightly sparkling now and she loved every second of it. He threw her a pillow and they got into a pillow-fight.
‘Hugh, O .. Stop it! I’ve got some feathers in my mouth!’ she squealed. The whole room was now covered in feathers and other little bits and pieces from the pillows. Hugh was sitting on top of Lisa having the most fun he had in a very long time. ‘Will you give up then?’ Hugh asked. Lisa didn’t really want to give up but she could already feel the bruises on her ass, which she got when you slapped her there with his pillow. ‘I will never give up, but I think my ass needs a break, so can we like cease the fire for now?’ she asked him with her best puppy dog eyes. Hugh melted when he saw her like that, he flipped them over so she was on top now, wrapped his arms around her and pressed her close to his chest. She took that as a yes and cuddled a little closer while he started to stroke her hair.
‘You know this is the most fun I’ve had in a very long time and it’s all because of you.’ he softly whispered against her hair. She blushed a little and stroke his chest a little. ‘Really Lisa, sometimes I don’t know what I’d do without you.’ She looked up into his eyes, which were a blue she hadn’t seen before, really light and soft. He smiled and then put a small kiss on her lips. After that she snuggled back into his chest and closed her eyes for a while.
After 20 minutes they decided they couldn’t spend all day cuddling on Hugh’s carpet. ‘So what did you plan for the rest of the day?’ he asked her. ‘How about toying a little with the paparazzi and may be get your wife a little jealous?’ she smirked a little. ‘Sounds good to me!’ he said smiling happily. He had a sparkle in his eyes all day and she even saw the light soft blue in his eyes again that they, when they were in the ET-photoboot…
Lisa got out of her trance and tried to think why she had gone to her bedroom in the first place, then suddenly saw her keys, grabbed them and hurried out the door. She was all set. A girl on a mission.
They had decided to meet at the elevator at the third floor of the parking lot at 7.45am. They were supposed to be in the studio at 8 for the read through of the script from the third episode of season six. Lisa arrived at the parking lot at 7.38, she felt she had to be at least a little early because this was her mission. She saw Jennifer and Olivia already waiting in front of the elevator and walked to them.
‘Hey! How are you? I really missed you !’ She said pulling them both into a hug. ‘Well, I guess we’re fine and we missed you too!’ Jen said smiling. ‘I’m really excited about our super soaker mission, I hope it cheers Hugh up a little!’ Olivia added. ‘Me too…’ Lisa said. A glimpse of worry could be seen in her eyes. She was really concerned about Hugh, she had missed him a lot and they hadn’t been able to talk much lately, she just hoped he was okay.
After Robert, Katie, Jesse, Omar and Peter arrived they could start their mission. ‘So, you all understand the plan? Robert is our superspy…’ Lisa said, she felt like a general talking to her soldiers. ‘That would be me, 014, the name is Leonard, Robert Sean Leonard.’ Robert said with his best James Bond voice. Everyone laughed because it didn’t sound like James Bond at all. ‘Why are you 014?’ Omar asked. ‘Because I’m twice as good as James Bond.’ Robert said proudly. ‘I always thought you were more like an 003,5’ Jesse said while Lisa was rolling her eyes.
‘You guys!’ Lisa said. ‘Yes, my dear general!’ Robert answered, while the rest of them chuckled. ‘Robert is going undercover to the read through, meanwhile Katie distracts David so I don’t get my ass fired. Also Jen and Olivia distract the other people at the studio while me and Jesse bring our bags to the restrooms where we will fill our super soakers. Then I will contact all of you through the walkie-talkie’s and give further directions. And Robert don’t forget to put this super soaker in your bag, it’s already filled. Do you understand?’ Lisa spoke like a true general, while she handed Robert a bright pink super soaker with a picture of a princess on it. He looked at it suspiciously. ‘Now I will look like a gay version of James Bond!’ he argued. ‘You already got the double name Robert Sean, it’s like Jean-Pièrre or…’ Jennifer said. Robert looked offended at Jennifer and Lisa. ‘O honey, I think it’s very masculine to have two names. By the end of the day everyone will say: Watch out for Robert Sean and his bright pink war-machine, he fights in name of the queen!’ Lisa said trying to convince him…
‘ Yeah, so ehm what am I going to do?’ Peter asked. Lisa had forgotten completely about Peter but with quickly thought of something. ‘You make sure all the exits are free. So that if we get caught by David we can run for our lives.’ She answered. ‘Jesse, why don’t you give everyone their walkie-talkie’s and Robert you should go it’s already a few minutes past 8. We’ll keep in touch!’ She said, while Robert left to go to the read through.
When everyone had their walkie-talkie’s Lisa tested them ‘TEST, TEST, this is the general for all soldiers can you hear me, over?’ Lisa said. ‘Loud and clear, general. Over.’ Omar said laughing a little. ‘Good, everyone get in position, Mission MHH has started. Over.’ Lisa said. ‘Mission MHH? … Over!!’ Katie asked. ‘Mission Make Hugh Happy, over and out!’ Lisa said with a much softer voice.
