"Drive safe. Goodnight!" Cuddy yelled as her family and বন্ধু left for their cars.
Feeling the soft chill of night air on her exposed arms, Cuddy quickly went back inside her home.
She saw all the empty glasses and plates left on the টেবিল and various presents scattered around her আগুন place.It was a lot to clean up, but she decided to wait until the morning. It would be saturday afterall, and she'd be up early with Rachel.
Cuddy smiled at the thought of her little girl. The baby naming ceremony had been fun. Her parents were surprisingly civil to one another, her sister was less judgmental than usual, and Wilson had been so helpful setting everything up. The only person missing was House. She thought for sure he'd change his mind and প্রদর্শনী up. It was only one evening of his life and he couldn't even put his own selfishness aside...
Cuddy was pulled from her thoughts at the sudden banging at the door.
"Hold on." She yelled as she reached for a sweater to put on.
When she finally reached the peep hole she was less than pleased to find House's gloomy visage staring back at her.
"You're late." She ব্যক্ত as she opened the door.
"Two hookers can take up alot of time." He ব্যক্ত in his usual deadpan manner.
Cuddy however wasn't at all in the mood for his dry sense of humor.
"It's almost midnight. I'm tired. What do আপনি want?"
"It's cold out here can we at least have this argument inside?" He asked as he rubbed his hands together for warmth.
Cuddy rolled her eyes at him and pulled the door wide open so that he could enter.
House closed the door behind him but remained standing in front of it.
Cuddy sat on the armrest of her sofa.
"There's no খাবার অথবা wine left if that's why আপনি are here." She ব্যক্ত as she crossed her arms in front of her chest.
"Damn. I was hoping for some latka's too."
Cuddy shook her head in annoyance and stood up.
"You should go." She ব্যক্ত as she started to walk back toward her bedroom.
House limped behind her. He had forgotten his cane again.
"Don't follow me." She ব্যক্ত as she reached her bedroom door.
House placed a hand on her back. She stilled at his touch.
"I screwed up."
Cuddy turned around to face him.
"Why do আপনি do that? আপনি always make the wrong choice. It's like you're afraid of what the right one will bring." She ব্যক্ত as she leaned against her bedroom door.
House looked down at his shoes. Cuddy noticed his hand was free of his cane.
"Where's your cane?"
"I forgot it on the way here." He ব্যক্ত looking up at her again.
"Tell me what happened tonight that was so important that আপনি weren't here."
House stepped closer to her.
"I'm not able to give আপনি an answer that you'll like অথবা even accept."
Cuddy looked down at her feet now. A heavy sadness fell over her.
"You are one of the most important people in my life and আপনি weren't here for one of the most important days of my life...of my daughter's life."
"How am I suppose to be here?" He asked angrily.
Cuddy looked up at him.
"You want me to come over to be what? A father figure? A dad to her? আপনি want me to bond with her and..."
"Would that be so bad?" She asked.
"You know how damaged I am. Do আপনি really want me to damage her too?"
Cuddy looked at him somewhat shocked.
"I'm not exactly without my own frayed edges and missing pages,House. But I প্রণয় her and that is আরো important than anything else." She ব্যক্ত as she stepped closer to him.
"And that's the same reason I...well, I don't hate you." She ব্যক্ত with a smile.
House grinned at her comment.
"...I don't hate আপনি either." He ব্যক্ত as he placed a tentative hand on her arm. Cuddy looked at his hand and placed hers on top.
"I think we're suppose to চুম্বন now." House ব্যক্ত with a knowing smirk.
"I'm still mad at you." She ব্যক্ত with her own smile as she pulled back and leaned against her bedroom door once more.
"I know. I deserve it. So, let me make it up to you." He ব্যক্ত as he motioned closer to her until his face was right near hers.
Cuddy laughed nervously.
"I'm not gonna do আপনি just because আপনি showed some vulnerability."
"You don't have to do anything." He ব্যক্ত as she pulled her lips into his.
Cuddy got হারিয়ে গেছে in his expert tongue for a moment before suddenly breaking free of his grasp.
"Do আপনি like me, House?" She ব্যক্ত with her own knowing smile as she rested her hand on the door knob.
"I ব্যক্ত I didn't hate you. Isn't that enough?"
Cuddy shook her head.
"You know how I feel." He ব্যক্ত placing his hand on শীর্ষ of the door nob too.
"I'd like to hear it."
"Wouldn't আপনি rather me প্রদর্শনী you?"
"After আপনি say it." She ব্যক্ত in a taunting voice.
House rolled his eyes.
"I like you. Okay. I like আপনি alot...I really do."
Cuddy grinned wide at the confession.
"Good." She ব্যক্ত as she turned the knob and opened the bedroom door.
House, who had been quite confident earlier, was now a little uncertain of the situation.
"You're sure? This could change everything." He ব্যক্ত as he gazed beyond her and stared at the queen-size mattress.
Cuddy walked into the room and sat on the bed.
"It's time for a change." She replied as she pulled her hair out of her ponytail and let her tresses fall free.
House walked into the room without anymore hesitation closing the door behind him.
He took his time. He unbuttoned her শীর্ষ and slowly slid it over her head. Her bra was see through with পরাকাষ্ঠা জরি that made her nipples look like flowers. He touched them through the fabric. She closed her eyes at the sensation.
He leaned into her neck স্নেহ চুম্বন her from her hair line to her shoulder. As he continued to trail his tongue down her skin his hands were suddenly unclasping her bra.
Pulling away for a moment, he pulled the bra off of her arms. She smiled at his reaction to her half naked form.
"Nice." He ব্যক্ত as he took his hands and softly rubbed her breasts.
"It's not like it's the first time you've seen them."
"Ten years is a long time to go without seeing them." He ব্যক্ত wistfully.
House pulled her closer to him and kissed her left breast as his hands were busy unzipping her pants. Cuddy ran a hand through his hair.
"It's your turn to go shirtless."
House kissed her nipple hard making Cuddy yelp in surprise.
"I'm doing you. I run the show." He ব্যক্ত as he stood up.
"Fine." she ব্যক্ত as she folded her arms.
"Good. Now, lay back."
Cuddy laid against the pillows. House hovered above her and pulled her pants gradually from her body. Once she was free of the clothing House began to trace a hand along the elastic of her পরাকাষ্ঠা panties. Cuddy let out a breath in anticipation. He ever so slowly rubbed her through the thin fabric making her sigh quite happily. House smiled at her reaction and began to pull the barely there panties down her legs.
She was bare to him now. He couldn't help but to gasp at the sight of her. Suddenly, he felt that he wasn't worthy of this. This was meant for a much better man than him.
He got down on the বিছানা and lay পরবর্তি to her naked form. She turned to look at him in confusion.
"Are আপনি gonna..."
"I প্রণয় you." He blurted out before she could finish her sentence.
Cuddy turned to lay on her back and stare at the ceiling.
House turned to look at her and pulled the cover around her body. He then joined her in staring at the ceiling.
"Sorry. I ruined the mood." He ব্যক্ত with a sigh.
Cuddy started chuckling at his comment. House looked at her.
"Only আপনি would think that ruined the mood."
"It didn't? Why did আপনি get all quiet then?"
Cuddy turned on her side to look at him.
"I never thought you'd admit it." She ব্যক্ত as she began to stroke his neck.
"It just makes tonight that much আরো special." She ব্যক্ত as she traced his lips with her finger.
"I haven't slept with someone that I প্রণয় since Stacy." He admitted.
She rested her head against his chest.
"Do আপনি প্রণয় me?" He asked in a whispered tone.
Cuddy sat up at the question.
"Of course I do. আপনি idiot!" She ব্যক্ত with her hands on her hips.The blanket slipped from her body exposing her breasts once more. House couldn't help but to grin from ear to ear at both her confession and the lovely scene before him.
He sat up and placed his hands around her waist. Her breasts brushed against his chest. Her anger dissipated at the sight of his soft smile. She smiled back.
"Good. I'm glad we got that cleared up." He ব্যক্ত as he pulled her into another deep kiss.
