Epilogue, part 2
It was a lovely spring morning and Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital was, as always, busy.
A young man, carrying a big painting, entered through the front doors and after greeting the nurses at the reception he headed straight to the elevators and to the fourth floor.
Even after twenty years everyone still wondered how this kid could look so much like his father and be so different when it came to personalities. They thanked his mother for that…
The young man reached the fourth floor and headed straight to the Diagnostics Department. He had a meeting with the youngest Department Head of the hospital.
He reached his destination and he entered the office without knocking.
"God, they are all morons…" he heard the person behind the desk mumble, unaware of his presence, and he saw her bury her head in her hands.
"Who is?" Alex asked as he entered the office, carrying the big painting with him.
"Everyone!" Beth replied, throwing her hands in the air in frustration.
Alex chuckled and rested the painting against the wall and went to sit in front of his sister's desk.
"Dad will be so proud when he hears you." He said with a little smirk making his sister roll her eyes.
"Mature…" she said and stood up from her chair in order to inspect the painting Alex had brought.
"Done already?" she asked, her eyes lightening up in anticipation.
"Yeap! I hope you'll like it." He said hopefully making Beth smile.
"You know I'll love it, everything you paint is gorgeous little brother." She said, ruffling Alex's hair.
He slapped her hands away and he straightened his hair again.
"And you are supposed to be mature?" he asked, smiling in amusement.
She stuck her tongue out and she flipped the painting in order to inspect it. Her eyes widened in surprise when she saw her brother's new painting. She had found a photo of two intertwined bodies one day when she was surfing the net. She loved that photo from the first sight and she had e-mailed the photo to him immediately.
When she had asked him to paint something for her in order to put it in her office he had remembered that photo. And he had successfully managed to do a painting out of it.
"Alex this is wonderful!" she said enthusiastically, a grin finding its way to her lips.
He stood up and went to stand right behind her.
"I take it you like it then, huh?" he asked in a whisper.
She turned to look at him and she gave him a wide smile.
"It's perfect! Thank you…" she said and gave her brother a hug.
"But… how did you remember?" she asked, pulling back in order to look at him.
He gave her a small shrug and he sat back down on the chair.
"Hey, you are not the only one in the family with a good memory." He said with a wink.
"Riiight…" she dragged out and went to sit as well.
"I saw Aunt Lisa at the parking lot when I was coming up here. She really likes the painting." He said and his sister smiled.
"Of course she liked it, it's great!" she replied making Alex smile shyly.
"I thought dad would be here." Alex said looking at Beth questioningly.
"Oh, he was but he left." Beth replied looking for something on her desk.
"Why? Doesn't he like the new case? I thought you said that it was extremely interesting."
"He does like it. He was just arguing with Aunt Lisa because she didn't let him barge in the patient's room." she replied with a smirk making her brother laugh.
"And like mom says, some things will never change." He quipped.
Beth nodded in agreement but she didn't get the chance to speak because someone came running into the office.
"You have to hide me!" he said, quickly going towards Beth and hiding behind her desk.
"Speaking of morons…" Alex said with a smirk making his sister smile.
"Shut up or I'll tell mom!" threatened the person who was behind Beth's desk.
"Ian what did you do again?" Beth asked, studying their younger brother with a raised eyebrow.
"Nothing!" he defended himself.
"Right…" his older siblings said in unison.
"I did nothing! Why doesn't anyone believe me?" he asked incredulously, crossing his arms in front of his chest.
"Let me guess… oh, yeah, because you always do something." Alex reasoned.
"And you agree with him?" Ian asked, his green-blue eyes connecting with his sister's who smiled innocently.
"Come on! I'm your brother, you are supposed to defend me!" he reasoned making Beth laugh.
"Hey, I'm her brother too! And guess what, I've known her longer than you do so deal with it." Alex stated, smirking at his younger brother who scoffed.
"This is not fair!" he protested, a frown finding its way to his face.
"Deal with it." Alex said again, the smirk never leaving his lips.
"So, are you going to tell us what you did?" Beth asked but Ian didn't have the time to answer because they heard a knock on the door.
Alex and Beth turned their attention to the visitor only to see a nurse standing by the door.
"Dr. House, sorry for interrupting but have you seen your brother Ian?" she asked reluctantly.
Beth might be the spitting image of her mother but her father's influence was evident. She had a reputation to maintain after all. Thankfully her mother's genes were somewhere in there too and she had turned out to be the perfect combination of her parents'.
Beth looked at Alex who shook his head curtly and then turned to look at the nurse again.
"Sorry, I haven't seen him. Did he do anything?" she asked and the nurse sighed in frustration.
"This kid is a menace! He was down at the clinic and he changed place to every single patient's file!" she exclaimed.
Beth and Alex tried really hard not to burst out laughing. Beth looked at the nurse sympathetically.
"I'm sorry for that. But I haven't seen him around. When I do I will send him straight to you in order to fix everything." She reassured.
The nurse gave her a nod and exited the office. The minute she was out of earshot the two siblings burst out laughing and Ian got out of his hiding place and bowed theatrically.
"That was not nothing!" Alex exclaimed and threw the oversized tennis ball that was resting on Beth's desk.
Ian didn't have the time to react so the ball hit him straight on the head.
"Ouch! That hurt!" he whined and he was ready to catch the ball and throw it right back at him but Beth's voice stopped him.
"Hey! Give me that! You have work to do." She said seriously.
"Wait… you can't be serious." Ian replied, looking warily at his sister.
"Like a heart attack. Now better go, you have a lot of work to do." She said extending her hand.
Ian let out a sigh and handed the tennis ball to his sister.
"This is not fair!" he shouted as he walked out of the office.
"Deal with it!" Alex yelled.
Ian turned around and stuck his tongue out to his older brother and then he started walking towards the elevators again.
"Do you think he is going to go?" he asked, looking at Beth.
Beth shrugged and retrieved a file from her desk.
"I have no idea. At least I tried." She said studying the file in her hands.
"Where do you want me to put this one?" he questioned, pointing at the painting.
"Could you take this one down and hang the painting?" she asked, showing him an old painting that was on the wall.
"Sure, no problem." He replied and immediately stood up in order to fix everything.
She had some questions she wanted to ask him about something she had seen but one of her team members making his appearance didn't give her enough time.
"What did the test results show?" she asked.
"They are all inconclusive…" came the reply making her sigh.
"What did the MRI show?" she asked, taking the test results he handed her.
"The MRI?" Johnson asked warily.
Beth looked up from the papers in her hands and she looked at him with a raised eyebrow while Alex tried really hard to hide his amused smile.
"The MRI that I scheduled? I told you to take the patient there an hour ago." She stated calmly.
"Oh, that MRI…" Johnson said, taking a step back.
"You didn't do the MRI?" she asked, her blue eyes connecting with his.
"You see, I had it in my mind but I kind of… forgot…" he replied.
Beth placed the test results on her desk and locked eyes with him.
"Better have the MRI results on my desk in an hour or else you are not going to like the consequences." She said in a gravely low tone.
"Yes Dr. House. I'm going to schedule the MRI right now." He said and almost ran out of the room.
At that point Alex couldn't help himself anymore and he started laughing at Johnson's reaction earning a glare from his sister.
"What? You have to admit that this was hilarious." He stated and after inspecting the painting once more he retrieved his previous seat.
Beth shook her head in amusement and gave her brother a small smile.
"Funny thing actually… Everyone thinks that just because you are the spitting image of mom you have her character too but looks can deceive." He stated with a smirk, crossing his arms in front of his chest.
"I don't believe they find it funny." She quipped.
"Oh, but I do. Especially the part where they start running out of the door." He said though laughter.
"They don't run!" Beth defended herself.
"Yeah sorry, they almost run." He corrected making his sister roll her eyes. "At least your colleagues like you." He commented with a smirk.
"I'm adorable, I know." She stated batting her eyelashes and making Alex laugh.
"Where was that moron going?" House's voice sounded form the door making both siblings turn to look at him.
"The moron was heading to schedule an MRI." Beth replied to his question.
"I thought you had scheduled one…" he said in confusion.
"I had but they forgot to take the patient." She explained making her father roll his eyes.
"God they are all idiots!" he exclaimed.
Alex looked at his sister with a smile and she gave him a shrug.
"Could you page them? I want to see what other stupid thing they did." He said taking a sit in front of her desk.
His eyes darted to the wall where the painting was and he studied it carefully.
"What is a painting of a nude couple doing on the wall?" he asked with a frown.
"Do you like it? Alex painted it!" she replied enthusiastically.
"Yes, I can see that but what is it doing on the wall?" he asked again.
"I like it and Aunt Lisa said that it's great so it's not going anywhere." She stated firmly.
"This is not fair! When I had posted something similar she told me to put it down!" he whined childishly making his children laugh.
"Yes dad, because that was not a painting it was a photo of a nude woman, in a very provocative stance might I add. There is nothing wrong with this painting." she explained making House sigh.
"Fine… It's pretty good, by the way." He said, turning to look at his son who smiled widely.
"Think you can make a painting like that photo I had posted?" he whispered conspiratorially making Alex laugh and Beth shake her head in defeat.
"I don't think that mom is going to like that." Alex pondered and House sighed.
"Well, I had to try…" he said with a shrug and he took a sit in front of the desk.
"I heard that we'll have a new employee." Beth said catching her father's attention.
"Who said that?" he asked with a raised eyebrow.
"Aunt Lisa…" she stated and House looked at her with wide eyes.
"Why on earth do we need another moron running around?" he asked in bewilderment.
"Because Aunt Lisa said so." She replied.
"But I don't wanna!" he whined childishly.
"I don't care House." Sounded Cuddy's voice from the doorway making all three people turn to look at her.
The problem was that she wasn't alone…
"This is Dr. Jacob Allen; he will be working for you." She stated, looking from House to Beth.
"It's an honor…" he started but House cut him off.
"Yeah, yeah… honor my ass. I don't want him, take him back." He stated seriously, looking at Cuddy who had a determined expression on her face.
"I don't care, you are going to keep him." She said seriously and he scoffed.
"Why, did you throw the receipt away? I have told you a million times, when you buy new toys ask me first! Maybe I won't like them." He said, looking at the man next to Cuddy with a grimace.
"Are you done?" she asked, trying really hard to retain her composure.
"But mommy, do I have to keep him?" he asked, clasping his hands together and looking straight into her eyes.
"Yes, you do. Now, you'll excuse me, but I have to go to the clinic and see what your son did." She excused herself and walked out of the office, leaving Allen with the others.
House's eyes were glued on their new employee making him feel really uncomfortable and squirm under his scrutinizing gaze much to House's enjoyment.
"So, Dr. Allen… what is your specialty?" he asked, his gaze never wavering.
"I'm… uh, a neurologist." He replied.
Alex and Beth smirked as they watched their father "interrogate" the younger doctor.
"And you had to think before answering?"
"No… no sir." He said reluctantly.
"Then why the stuttering? Do you have a problem or something?" he asked, trying to hide his amusement.
"I'm perfectly healthy Dr. House." Came his reply, a little more confidently.
House narrowed his eyes and Allen looked away. He smirked to himself and after grabbing his cane he stood up.
"Got to go! I have to find your Uncle to buy me lunch." He announced looking at his children who nodded.
Then he turned to look at Allen only to see him watching Beth with a look he didn't really like.
"Hey!" he yelled suddenly making him jump at the sudden rise of his voice.
"If I catch you hitting on my daughter you are screwed…" he said seriously and Allen gulped.
"I didn't even think…"
"Please, that's what I said when her mother walked into my office. So, if you want to live better stay away from her." He stated with a small forced smile.
He nodded vigorously and House walked outside the office with a smug grin on his lips.
Alex burst out laughing the moment his father was out of view making Beth roll her eyes.
"He is so going to castrate Chris when he finds out." He said through laughter.
"You are the one to talk? What do you think Uncle Jimmy will do when he finds out about you and Amy?" she asked with a smirk that made him stop laughing at once.
"We are adults…" he started and Beth snorted.
"Yeah, right. I wouldn't start with that sentence." She said.
"Oh yeah? How is Chris going to start?" he asked, looking mischievously at her.
"Ha ha, very funny." She said sarcastically.
"Ah, sorry to interrupt but what am I supposed to do?" asked Allen, interrupting the siblings.
"Right, you have to do something… The other two are at the labs, running tests. You could join them or you could go schedule a CT." she said, turning serious and ignoring her brother who was smirking.
"I think I'll go to the lab then…" he said and started walking towards the door but paused and turned to look back.
"One more question… Who is running this department?" he asked and Beth just pointed at the door.
He read her and House's names and he nodded his head.
"Ok… I'm heading to the lab now." He stated and walked out of the office.
Alex watched him walk away and then turned to look at his sister.
"He is totally going to ask you out." He said, lacing his fingers behind his head.
"I don't care." She stated seriously and shrugged.
"I am just making an observation." He clarified.
"Riiight…" she dragged out, looking at him with a smile.
"Lunch?" he asked, returning the smile and she nodded.
"Sure, you are buying." She said standing up and making her brother shake his head.
"You are the Department Head!" he exclaimed.
"And you are the famous artist so I win!" she contradicted.
"Come on, let's go." He said, draping his arm over her shoulders.
"You know we are actually going to fight because we'll both want to pay, right?" she asked as they walked towards the elevators making Alex laugh.
"I know…" he said with a smile and they walked together towards the cafeteria.
Ian poked his head inside his mother's office and looked around. He saw her sitting behind her desk, reading a patient's file.
"What do you want Ian?" she asked, without looking up from the file she was reading.
His eyes widened in surprise and he entered the office.
"How do you do that?" he asked with a smile making his mother turn to look at him.
"You'll find out one day." She replied with a smile of her own.
"So, what are you doing here? I thought you were at Diagnostics." She said, putting the file on her desk.
"I was… do you think I can hide here though?" he asked with his best puppy-dog eyes.
Cameron raised an eyebrow and studied her youngest son.
"What did you do again?" she asked with a small sigh.
"It was supposed to be funny…" He started but his father's voice made him stop.
"But it wasn't… Well, that's what Lisa said, I thought it was hilarious." He concluded with a smirk making Cameron roll her eyes.
"That can't be good…" she mumbled, mostly to herself.
"It was good, a little old, but good." House said, winking at his son who grinned.
"I hope you fixed everything." She said in a serious tone.
"I did… Beth sent me down to the clinic to fix everything…" he said with a sigh.
"Good boy. Now we can go to the cafeteria and have lunch then." She said, closing the file she had in her hands and resting it on top of her desk.
Ian gave her a smile and he stood up immediately.
"You are buying lunch?" House asked looking at her with a smirk.
"Are you coming with us?" she said after giving him a nod.
"Of course I am! Lisa is looking for me, something about a mess in her office or something." He said in exasperation making his son laugh and his wife shake her head.
"Come on you two, let's go have lunch." She said grabbing House's and Ian's hands and walking out of the office and to the cafeteria.
Later that day...
"What are you doing there?" Beth inquired, her arms crossed in front of her chest, startling her younger brother.
"Come on Beth, are you trying to give me a heart attack or something?" Ian exclaimed, glaring at his sister who only smirked.
"Oh no, I never like that smirk…" he mumbled, mostly to himself.
"To whom are you sending that e-mail? Probably to someone you didn't want me to know about because you minimized the window." She pondered.
"Yes, I was sending it to your boyfriend." He shot back but Beth just raised an eyebrow.
"Riiight…" she dragged out, the smirk returning to her lips.
Ian groaned and buried his head in his hands making her laugh.
"Fine, I'll just let you send that email to your girlfriend, she's probably waiting for your answer." She said, ruffling Ian's hair lightly.
"Why can't you people stop doing that?" he shouted but Beth just waved her hand and headed to the living room.
She took a sit next to Alex who was sitting on the couch and she took the remote that was resting next to him.
"I was actually watching that." He stated plainly and Beth raised an eyebrow.
"You were watching commercials?" she asked, studying her brother.
He gave her an innocent smile and she chuckled.
"Nice, mess with your sister's head." She said sarcastically swatting his arm.
"What are you doing?" he asked while Beth surfed through the TV channels.
"I'm messing with Ian's head." She replied matter-of-factly, a smug grin finding its way to her lips and Alex laughed.
"Are we going to Katelyn's birthday party tonight?" he asked making his sister look away from the TV screen.
"Of course we are going!" she answered with a smile.
"Can I come too?" Ian's voice sounded from down the hall.
"No!" they answered in unison and they heard Ian groan.
"Chris gonna be there?" he asked casually.
"Amy gonna be there?" she replied with a question.
"You know the answer to that one so you must answer to my question." Alex stated with a smirk.
"Why? Do you wanna give him the 'if you hurt my sister I'm going to hunt you down and kick your ass' speech?" she asked in amusement.
"I might…" Alex trailed off and Beth looked at him warily.
Of course Alex found it really amusing and he started laughing again earning another playful slap from his sister.
"Not funny!" she exclaimed making Alex laugh even harder.
"What's not funny?" House asked who exited the kitchen that moment and he heard them.
He sat down on the couch and observed Alex and Beth who looked innocently at him.
"Nothing." They both said.
"I'm going to get dressed!" Beth announced before their father could interrogate them.
"Yeah, good idea." Alex said, following his sister.
"Where are you two going?" House asked but they had already entered Beth's room.
Ian, who heard him, returned to the living room and sat down next to him.
"It's Katelyn's birthday party." He explained.
"My bet is that Chris and Amy are going to be there too so that's why they are acting weird." He pondered, talking mostly to himself.
"You didn't hear that from me!" he said suddenly, realizing what he had said and to whom.
"Don't worry, secret's safe with me." He relied with a wink.
"Ok, got to go now!" he said and almost ran down the hall making House shake his head in amusement.
Of course he knew that his son's slip wasn't exactly accidental. He had to smile at his actions though.
He knew about Chris and Amy, both Beth and Alex had talked to him. He had to admit that he wasn't really fond of the idea of his little girl with some guy but he had to admit that he kind of liked him. Kind of… He had met him once. He made his little girl happy, that's what mattered to him. He knew Amy a lot better than Chris. And he also knew that Wilson had no idea that Alex and Amy were dating. He was tempted to make a comment many times but he always managed to hold back.
"What are you thinking?" Beth's voice interrupted his racing mind.
He turned to look at her and he gave her a smile.
"Nothing in particular…" he replied, patting the spot next to him.
Beth willingly walked towards her father and took a sit next to him. He draped an arm over her shoulders and she snuggled in his left side.
"Going out I heard." He said and he felt her nod against his shoulder.
"It's Katelyn's birthday, remember? Weren't you and mom going to go at Uncle Eric and Aunt Clair's?" she asked, looking at him.
House groaned making her smile.
"I had forgotten about that…" he mumbled closing his eyes and resting his head at the back of the couch.
"You know you like it really…" Beth teased, never moving from her position.
"Where are you going to go?"
"I don't know… Maybe somewhere to eat and then for a drink. We haven't decided yet…" she explained and he nodded.
"I heard a certain someone will be there." He said with a smirk.
"I'm going to kill Ian!" Beth exclaimed.
"So, he wasn't lying after all." House mused.
"Come on dad…" Beth mumbled, burying her head in his shoulder and making him smile.
"Fine, I'll stop." He said, squeezing her shoulder lightly.
"I have to get dressed. Seriously now." She said, dropping a kiss on House's cheek and standing up.
"Love you dad!" she said as she walked towards her room.
"Love you too angel..." he replied.
He didn't have to stay alone for long since Cameron entered the living room and took the sit Beth was occupying minutes ago.
"Ah, look, it's my other girl!" House said with a smirk, hugging her and kissing her lips softly.
"What are you doing here?" she asked, laying her head on his shoulder.
"Nothing… I'm just sitting here and waiting for you to come yell at me to get dressed." He stated matter-of-factly.
"We have time for that…" she said with an amused smile, relaxing in his embrace.
He closed his eyes and he let her breathing calm him; relax him and a few minutes later he fell asleep.
He woke up suddenly to the sound of the alarm clock shrieking loudly. He was a little disoriented at first until he noticed the sleeping form of his pregnant wife next to him.
She felt the bed moving and she opened her eyes only to see him sitting on the bed and looking around the room.
"Hey, you ok?" she asked, sitting straight as well.
"Yeah… I just had the weirdest dream." He mumbled, rubbing his hand over his face.
"Good or bad dream?" she asked, studying his expression.
His blue eyes locked with her green-blue ones and he gave her a smile.
"Good one, actually…" He replied in a soft tone, leaning to her and placing a small kiss on her lips.
He dragged her to him and they lied on their sides again, their lips always locked together. They just enjoyed the intimacy and being in each other's arms for the time being.
A soft knock on the door made them break apart and turn to look at that direction.
"Can I come in?" Beth's voice sounded.
"Yeah!" House replied, a little louder than necessary.
"You don't have to yell." Beth said seriously once she was inside the room but she couldn't stop the smirk from reaching her lips.
"What do you want sweety?" Cameron asked, looking at their daughter.
"Well, we were thinking since it's Saturday and the weather is good can we go for a walk?" she asked with her best puppy dog eyes.
"I think it's a good idea." Cameron replied, getting out of bed.
"You are insinuating that I have to get out of bed?" House asked incredulously.
"That's the plan." Cameron said, looking at him with a smile.
He buried his head under his pillow and he mumbled something unintelligible.
"Come on dad!" Beth said, looking expectantly at him.
He pulled the pillow away from his head and he sighed upon meeting her eyes.
"Ok, I'll get up…" he caved in and he stood up, following them out of the room.
"Are we going?" Alex asked when he saw them all making their way to the kitchen.
"Yeah, we are!" Beth replied with a smile making her little brother jump up and down in joy.
"Go get dressed you two. I'll make breakfast and then we can go." Cameron said and both Beth and Alex almost ran towards their rooms.
"Can we continue what we had started now?" he asked, waggling his eyebrows at her.
"No, we have to eat breakfast and then get ready to leave." She protested but he dragged her to him anyway.
"Come on, just for a little while." He mumbled before capturing her lips with his in a soft kiss to which she willingly gave into.
Beth and Alex returning to the kitchen made them break apart once again and he groaned in displeasure.
"Go get dressed…" she mumbled against his lips and she headed to the bedroom in order to change too.
"Whose idea was this?" he asked, looking at his kids with a raised eyebrow.
They just looked innocently at him and he followed Cameron to their bedroom.
Thirty minutes later they were at the small park, close to their home. Beth and Alex were running around, having a great time while House and Cameron were sitting on a bench nearby watching them. She was snuggled in his left side, her head resting against his shoulder.
"So, what was that dream you saw last night?" she inquired and turned her head in order to look at him, her eyes locking with his.
"It was nothing…" he brushed it off but she wasn't going to back down, he knew.
"Oh, come on!" she whined childishly.
"Nope, I'm not going to tell you. Maybe someday you'll find out." he said cryptically.
She looked at him in confusion and he laughed lightly.
"What?" she asked making him smile.
"Nothing…" he said and dropped a kiss on the tip of her nose.
A few minutes passed in silence when she suddenly took her hand and she placed it on her swollen belly.
"Hey, he woke up." He commented with a smile earning a wide smile from her.
"Yeap, he did." She said leaning in his embrace once again, their joined hands resting on her belly.
"What do you think about the name Ian?" he asked, observing Alex and Beth as they chased each other around.
"I like it…" she replied with a small smile and he nodded.
He placed a small kiss on her lips and she dropped her forehead against his.
"I love you…" she said in a whisper, the smile never leaving her lips.
"I love you too…" he replied, kissing her lovingly.
Their attention was drawn to their kids once again and they watched them play with small smiles on their lips. His hand remained entwined with hers, resting on her swollen belly and feeling their baby moving. Ian…
He smiled to himself… He still couldn't explain how that woman managed to make him feel so happy. But he had given up trying a long time ago. He had come to terms with the fact that she was his saving grace, the one who managed to bring him back to life and save him from himself.
She had given him the most precious gifts he had ever received in his life. Her love and their children… And he was glad she loved him.
The dream he had the previous night returned in his mind. He didn't know if any of those things were going to come true. But he knew that his future was going to be great as long as he had her and their kids.
He dropped a kiss on her temple and she smiled at him. He hugged her tightly and he closed his eyes. Having her around was the best thing that happened to him. He wasn't afraid of the future anymore. He actually looked forward to it.
Yeah… his future was going to be great. As long as she loved him, his future was going to be great. Their future was going to be great…
A/N: Sooo, that was it... If anyone got confused the first part of the story where Beth and Alex are adults is just House's dream.
I'm waiting for your comments and I hoped that you enjoyed this! :) Thank you all for reading...
