Chapter 3- Administrative Questions
Disclaimer: Sorry for not mentioning before but I don’t own House M.D или any of its characters… sadly
Everything was surprisingly quiet today. House hadn’t come in to drop by, which made me feel somewhat empty… what the hell am I saying?! Why would I want this день to be ruined by his constant bickering?! ‘Because the day’s never ruined when House is around’ сказал(-а) a voice inside my head. I tried to ignore it and got back to working when I heard the door open. ‘House?’ I happily thought as much as I wanted to deny it, only to be disappointed by seeing Thirteen at the doorway.
“How may I help Ты Dr. Hadley?” I asked professionally.
“One of our patients has some Вопросы that she thinks only the Dean of Medicine can answer.” She said. Hm, a patient with administrative questions? Not something Ты see everyday, but it was my duty to answer them.
“Alright, what room?” I asked.
“204. The patient is Alexis Harrison.” She informed me.
“Alright, thank Ты Dr. Hadley.” I сказал(-а) as I got up and opened the door to leave.
“You’re welcome.” She сказал(-а) as she left to go do her Clinic Duty. I took the elevator to the секунда floor and found room 204. When I entered, I wad surprised to find the young teenager that used to be House’s patient. I had expected someone… older. I closed the door behind me and walked towards her.
“Hello Alexis. Dr. Hadley told me Ты had a few Вопросы for me.” I greeted as we both smiled.
“Yes, well, I was just wondering how does one donate to the hospital? I was thinking about talking to my parents about it.” She told me. I saw this as a perfect opportunity. The hospital needed donations. The conversation went on for about half an час when it suddenly took an interesting turn.
“So what does one do to donate to the Department of Diagnostic Medicine? That’s Dr. House’s department, right?” the Вопрос surprised me. No one ever wanted to donate anything to House’s department, especially after meeting him. I realized I hadn’t spoken yet and decided to answer her question.
“You take the same steps as all the other departments except Ты have to get a different code for when filling out the papers.” I replied hoping that would answer her question.
“He doesn’t seem very nice, but I know he cares deep down. He does a great job no matter what his motives are and he cares about the people close to him. Are Ты his Друзья Dr. Cuddy?” this Вопрос definitely caught me by surprise; the whole thing did. Someone actually thought House had a caring side. I was happy that someone noticed this.
“Yes… I am.” I smiled, happy to have сказал(-а) that although some part of me earned for it to be something еще than that.
“He cares about Ты a lot Dr. Cuddy. I can tell by the way he looks at you. He doesn’t want to Показать it but the gleam in his eye says it all… do Ты like him Dr. Cuddy?” I was speechless. House… cared about… me? All I could think of were his beautiful blue eyes shining as they looked at me. A patient, a 14 year-old patient had just asked me if I liked him. I was frozen. I had to say no, I wouldn’t admit it. It wasn’t right. I couldn’t. Say no Cuddy, SAY NO!
“No… but he’s still my friend.” I сказал(-а) as I quickly got up and exited the room so I could no longer be asked any questions. I walked faster than usual to my office and took a big gulp of coffee as I sat down in my chair trying to grasp everything that had just happened. The image of House’s eyes staring at me popped into my head and m сердце melted. I had never felt this way. How could I not have noticed?! He had the most beautiful eyes. Staring into them was like staring into his soul, where deep down I could see the care Alexis had told me about. I tried to focus on something else to get my mind off of House but ended up back where I was before… Мечты about him. Now, everything reminded me of him. I took m car keys into my hand and rushed out of the hospital telling the nurse I was going Главная early. Once I got Главная I took a душ and lay down on my постель, кровати as I drifted off to sleep. That night I dreamed of Gregory house.
