The পরবর্তি day, Lisa feels much better and Lucas comes to visit her.
‘Hi!’ Says Cuddy opening the door.
‘Hi! How are আপনি feeling ?’
‘Much better, thanks.’
‘I've brought something special to you.’ He gives her a box of chocolates and she takes it.
‘Wow, thank you, but Lucas, I’ve been sick, I can’t really eat chocolates...’
‘I know, I know, they are for when আপনি feel better, that’s why I’ve also brought this.’ He gives her a rose and Lisa blushes a bit while she takes it. ‘Thanks.’ She smiles and gives him a quick চুম্বন on his lips.
‘You're welcome.’ He approaches and returns the চুম্বন a bit deeper. They smile and keep স্নেহ চুম্বন while lying on the couch. They stay there for a while, she seems weird, suddenly she remembers House and stops স্নেহ চুম্বন Lucas. ‘Is there something wrong?’ Asks he worried, looking at her.
‘No, it's just...’ Cuddy shakes her head and smiles at him. ‘It's nothing.’ She sits up, and he does the same. ‘So... How was your day? I think I will go back to work tomorrow.’
‘That’s great, if আপনি feel better... My দিন was good, nothing interesting, আপনি know... The most interesting part was buying the chocolates and the rose while I was following a guy.’
She nods and hands him the চকোলেট box. ‘I think I’ll be able to eat them tomorrow. আপনি want some now?’
‘Yes, sure, I'll take one.’ Lucas eats the চকোলেট and his cell phone rings. ‘Excuse me. Hello?... yes, it's me... uh huh... I'm busy right now... yes, আপনি know, I have personal life... yes, okay... I'll be there.’ He hangs up. ‘Damn it, I have to go.. আপনি want me to come back later?’
‘Sure, আপনি wanna come for dinner?’
‘Yes, I'll try to be here on time. I'll call আপনি later. ‘He takes another চকোলেট and gives her another kiss. ‘Bye Lis!’
That morning Wilson goes to his office early, trying not to run into House, because he doesn't want to tell him about his visit to Lisa the দিন before. When Wilson gets to his office, House is already there waiting and he scares his friend.
‘Oh God! What are আপনি doing here?’ James looks at the time. ‘So early...’
‘I've slept here...’ Wilson looks at him surprised. ‘I was kidding... Did আপনি visit Lisa yesterday?’
‘Yes, I went to her house...’ He really doesn’t wanna talk about it and tries to change the subject. ‘And how do আপনি feel today?’
‘Fine... what did she say?’
‘Can't আপনি be আরো specific? What do আপনি wanna know?’
‘Oh come on, I wanna know every little detail she said... What did আপনি both talk about?’ Asks House.
‘I... can't tell you. She's okay, that's all. I'll go to visit her later again.’
‘You can't tell me?? Come on Wilson...’
‘Oh come on...’ He can’t have secrets like that with his friend. Wilson looks around, sighs and finally speaks. ‘She's dating Lucas.’
House looks at him shocked. He’s speechless for some seconds, then leaves the office and goes to his own office. Wilson doesn't know if he has done well দ্বারা telling House about Lisa's new boyfriend, but he can’t stand both news (Lisa’s new boyfriend and Lisa’s possible pregnancy) and not telling any of them to House. Besides, দ্বারা telling this, House won't insist asking to his friend আরো things... at least for a while...
House gets into his office and sits down. He leans his head against the cane and thinks of Lisa and Lucas. He knows Lucas wanted her, but Greg would had never imagined Lisa in a relationship with that guy.
While House is immersed in his thoughts, Wilson spends the whole দিন working, and phones Lisa to tell her that he can’t go to visit her today. Wilson doesn’t go to see House to his office either, because he guesses that his friend needs some time alone, to think and asimilate things.
The পরবর্তি দিন Wilson gets to the hospital and looks for a pregnancy test for Cuddy, then goes to her office and gives it to her.
‘Oh no Wilson, not again… Come on… I’m not pregnant…’
‘We decided that আপনি would do it...’
‘No, আপনি decided it...’ She sighs. ‘Seriously, don’t worry, I’m okay, I don’t need to do the test.’
While Wilson is trying to convince Cuddy to do the test, House gets to work, late, as always. He remains thinking about going to Lisa’s office and talk to her, but he’s not sure whether he should do that অথবা not.
‘Lisa...’ Says Wilson sighing. ‘Okay, আপনি are old enough, আপনি can do what আপনি want.’ He leaves the test on her ডেস্ক and goes to the door, but then he turns again and walks to her. ‘No! Come on! আপনি have to be sure!’
Lisa breathes deeply and takes it. ‘Okay… I’ll do the damn test!’
Finally House decides go to her office and talk to her. When he gets there he opens the door and sees Wilson and her holding something in her hand.
‘Am I interrupting something?’ Asks House, and Cuddy drops the test to the ground accidentally.
‘Oh... no, no, it's nothing...’ উত্তর she, but he approaches and takes the test before she can do it.
‘A pregnancy test...’
House turns to see her in silence. ‘... It's, it's nothing important...’
‘Nope... I guess having the possibility of being pregnant it's not important... I'm overreacting.’ Says House serious. She looks at him and then looks away.
‘It’s nothing, I’m not pregnant, that’s what I was telling to Wilson...’
‘Yeah, obviously আপনি have a pregnancy test because you're sure it is nothing.’
‘Wilson brought it to me, but I don’t need it.’
‘ I just wanted her to be sure...’ Says Wilson from the other side of the room. He feels like if he shouldn’t be there.
House approaches lo leave the test on the ডেস্ক and keeps looking at her.
‘Aren't আপনি gonna take it?’
‘Should I? I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant... Anyway... Why do আপনি care? আপনি haven't talked to me for weeks and now আপনি come here like if we're great...’
‘If you're pregnant the baby can't be of your new knight of the shining armor...’
Lisa looks at him surprised. ‘W-what? Why do আপনি know about Luc- him...?’ She looks at Wilson disappointed. ‘James......’ He was trying to flee.
‘I didn't want to... but... আপনি know him...’ Says Wilson, and sighs. ‘ Lisa... I'm so sorry... I couldn't hide both news...’
‘You know him... he just can't shut up...’ Says Greg.
Cuddy is a little angry and looks at House. ‘If you’re so interested yes, the baby can’t be of Lucas because we haven’t done anything yet. So the baby just could be yours, আপনি want that?... Are আপনি ready to be a father?’ Asks Lisa serious looking at him. ‘Are আপনি ready to be a father and not to be with the mother?’ She takes the test and goes out of her office to the toilet. ‘This is silly...’
While she’s out, Wilson and House look at each other and sit down on the পালঙ্ক in silence, thinking about her words until she comes back. House remains thinking while playing with his cane. She’s right. If she is pregnant, he couldn’t stand her dating to another man and this guy raising his child. It would be very difficult and complicated, but on the other hand, if she has his kid, maybe there is still a chance for him to be with her again. Besides, he knows that she always wanted to have a baby, and maybe this is her opportunity although is not his.
Some মিনিট later Lisa opens the door and leaves the test on the small টেবিল in front of them. ‘We have to wait, and I don’t wanna know it.’
They wait for the results in silence, it’s a very uncomfortable situation and House starts গান গাওয়া low. ‘Oh, he himself has ব্যক্ত it, and it's greatly to his credit...’
Cuddy is really nervous going back and forth throughout the office and Greg গান গাওয়া doesn’t help her very much. ‘Shut up, please...’
They stay in silence until Wilson, thoughtful, asks. ‘Would আপনি like to have a baby?’
Neither of them expected that প্রশ্ন and they look at him with their eyes wide opened. To calm down the situation House jokes. ‘I'm not gonna have a kid with আপনি Wilson!!!’
She smiles slightly and sighs. ‘Why have আপনি come here? আপনি wanted something?’
‘I wanted... to... say hello.’
‘Okay, hello. Now, if that was everything, আপনি can take the test and go to your office.’
‘I'd rather wait here...’ উত্তর House staring at her.
‘No, I don’t wanna see the results, and I think we have nothing to talk about.’
‘Or maybe we do have something to talk about, don't আপনি think?’
‘We haven’t talked for weeks and look, I’m still alive.’
‘I admire this survival ability আপনি have so much!!!’
She breathes deeply. ‘Okay, let’s talk. Anything to say?’
‘Yes, how is it going with Lucas?’
Cuddy looks at him surprised, oh God, what’s that, is he jealous? ‘We're getting to know each other, so, so far so good. He was there when I needed him.’
‘I'm pretty sure he showed that altruism for free...’
‘He's nice and sees beyond himself, and if he needs help he asks.’
‘Could আপনি please give me his telephone number? I may be interested in dating him.’
‘Why? That’s what আপনি already had. I thought আপনি didn't want it anymore.’
House stares at her in silence and then looks at the floor. Cuddy looks at him and speaks. ‘I’m sorry.’ He nods without looking at her and she sighs. ‘House... I...’
Wilson coughs and interrupts her. ‘Sorry... this is already.’ Says pointing at the test.
