A/N: I seriously don't need to be starting any new fics, but I just can't control myself. Please read and review!
Disclaimer: Obviously I don't own House, M.D. or I wouldn't be writing fan fics.
"Lisa!?" A shrill and annoying voice filtered through the air and pierced straight through Cuddy's ears effectively bringing her head up from the file she was currently engrossed in reading to look up at a tall dark haired woman with the biggest smile she had ever seen plastered on her face.
Everyone else near the nurses' station looked up from what they were doing, patients included, to stare at the sight before them. The loud woman ran up to Cuddy at light speed and engrossed her in a literally breath taking hug, knocking Cuddy momentarily breathless and gasping for air. After about a minute of not breathing, Cuddy was finally and thankfully released from the potentially deadly hug. With an immense intake of air Cuddy collected herself enough to speak. "Liz, what are doing here? I thought you were in Miami?" Cuddy asked, confused and still slightly in a state of shock.
Liz huffed out a breath and put her hands on her hips dramatically. "What?" she replied sounding a little offended. "No hello nice to see you?"
"Uh, well, I mean…um-" Cuddy stammered.
"Hahaha!" Liz moved her hands from her hips to her stomach and hunched over in laughter. "You are still so gullible!" she said in between fits of laughter. Cuddy only looked at her incredulously. She finally calmed down and continued to speak. "Nothing changes." she said with a smile at the look on Cuddy's face.
"Yeah," agreed Cuddy, who was now smiling as well, "nothing changes." Cuddy stepped forward and enveloped the woman in a hug-this one much less aggressive-and separated soon after. "It's nice to see you. But again, I thought you were in Miami."
The woman shrugged her shoulders casually, "Change of plans." Cuddy appeared skeptical at that explanation. "What!? I wanted to see my little sis."
Cuddy groaned. "You know I hate it when you call me that."
"Oh, you know I don't buy that. You secretly love it." Cuddy rolled her eyes. "And besides, Jersey is way better than Miami."
"I don't believe you." Cuddy stated plainly. "You're up to something."
"Oh, come on! Why would you say something like that?" Liz inquired.
"Nothing changes." Cuddy replied with a smile slowly gracing her features.
Liz laughed. "Well…ok maybe a little something."
Cuddy shook her head in amusement. "This is gonna be interesting isn't it?" she asked with intrigue and a hint of apprehension.
The devilish smile she received in return was all she needed to know. Of course it was.
"So are you going to give me the grand tour or what?" Before Cuddy could respond Liz had looped her arm though hers and was dragging her towards the elevators.
They had made it through almost the entire hospital in nearly twenty minutes and Cuddy was exhausted. She'd forgotten how fast her sister could walk, especially with her legs being much longer than her own, even with heels on. There was only one stop left that Cuddy had purposely put off until the last minute, hoping her sister would get tired and want to go out for lunch or something. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
House was sitting in his office, his feet propped up carelessly on his desk as he balance a ball on the handle of his cane, threw it up in the air, and caught it again with the handle of his cane seemingly effortlessly.
"Nice trick you got there." The ball fell off the head of the cane with a dissatisfying thump and House scowled at the intrusion.
"Who are you?" House asked, not bothering with being polite.
Cuddy glared at House, "Liz this is doctor House, House this is my sister, Elizabeth." she said gesturing between the two.
"But you can call me Liz." she added cheerfully.
House gave a nod, but didn't say anything else. Surprised at House's quietness, but thankful at the same time, Cuddy turned to leave. "Come on, Liz. Let's go get some lunch." The two sisters left House's office and retreated down the hall disappearing from House's view.
House appeared to be in deep thought. It was always interesting to him to learn a new fact about the people he worked with. Cuddy had never mentioned a sister before, but then again she doesn't really disclose much information to him as it was. He wondered why her sister would suddenly make an appearance. Something was going on and he needed to find out what. He moved his feet off of his desk carefully and darted out of his office hastily like a man on a mission.
"This is where you go for lunch?" Liz asked sounding almost disgusted.
"I don't have much time to go anywhere else." Cuddy responded, "What's wrong with this place?"
Liz looked around her pointedly. "Um…it's the hospital cafeteria?"
"So?" Cuddy defended her cafeteria, "This happens to be a very good place to eat." A worker in the food line chose that exact moment to sneeze and wipe his nose before scooping up a pile of unidentifiable meat and plopping it on the customer's tray. The two sisters looked on in repulsion. Liz pushed her tray away from her. "Uh…ok, so it's not perfect." Liz stared at her little sister. "Anyways," Cuddy changed the subject, "Are you going to tell me what you have planned yet?"
"Alright, you're going to love this. But just hear me out first, okay?"
"Okay…" Cuddy agreed a bit uneasily.
A shady figure in a baseball cap and sunglasses was reading the newspaper occupying a table on the far side of the cafeteria.
"As you know, the whole photography career didn't work out too good for me." Cuddy nodded. "So I've decided to go into the movie business!" Cuddy was silent for a moment. Her sister was still in the midst of trying to figure out what to do with her life and was constantly changing professions.
"Oh, that's great." Cuddy pretended to be excited for her sister. "So, you want to be an actor?"
"Oh, no." Liz shook her head rapidly. "I'm going to be a director!"
The man in the baseball cap's eyebrow rose above the rim of his sunglasses.
"Well good for you." Cuddy supported her sister in whatever she wanted to do, no matter how crazy her ideas could be sometimes. "I think you'll make a great director."
Liz smiled at her sister. "Really?" Cuddy nodded. "That's great because this hospital is the perfect place for a medical drama!"
Cuddy almost choked on her water. "Excuse me?" said Cuddy surprised at the implication. "You want to use my hospital in your film?"
"Mmhm, it's perfect! You and your staff can be in it too." she said excitedly.
"You have got to be kidding me! This isn't a movie set. There's patients and work to be done-"
"Which only makes it all the more effective!" said Liz, "It'll be authentic! I mean how many movies have you seen that are actually set in a real hospital or a real police department, or office or whatever?"
"Yeah, and don't forget how great I look on camera." Both women turned to look at none other than House in a baseball cap and shades.
Cuddy groaned in exasperation. "Don't you have a case?"
House grinned. "Nope. All the sick people must be on vacation."
"Well I'm sure there are some sick people vacationing down in the clinic right now." Cuddy said in a desperate attempt to get House to leave. It didn't work.
"So, when do we get started?" House and Liz shared the same smile on their faces that told Cuddy she wasn't going to win and she bowed her head in defeat.
A/N: I couldn't find a suitable place to end it, but I think this works because I need to finish some homework. Reviews are much appreciated!
