Chapter Seven - My Beautiful Valentine.

House kissed her tenderly again, running his fingers up and down her side. House pulled back and the whole room clapped and cheered. All eyes were still on House and Cameron. House was a bit embarrassed, but he was so happy that done it that he didn't give a damn about what anyone else thought about him.

"Come with me." said House as he took Cameron's hand, lacing his fingers through hers and started to lead her outside. Wilson patted his friend on the back as he left, so proud that House had done it in his own way.

"Well done mate." said Wilson quietly and House smiled at him over his shoulder, continuing to lead Cameron out into the fresh air.

As they got outside, House pushed Cameron against the wall and kissed her again, before she had time t say anything. Cameron held House's strong jaw, as her rubbed her back soothingly. Hi s hands travelled down her back and rested on her backside. Cameron leaned back against the wall and felt House like she had always wanted to feel him. She could taste him, feel his body against hers, and all she wanted to do was rip his clothes off in the middle of the car park. House's body was pressed firmly against hers, and she could feel the warmth from him. As House pulled away, Cameron finally noticed the cool wind.

"Allison Cameron, you have no idea how long I've wanted to do that." he said, running his hand down her cheek.

"Probably for about as long as I've wanted to. House that was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me. It was beautiful." said Cameron, holding his face in her hands.

"Well, I wanted to tell you how I felt, and I thought that a song would say it better than me mumbling."

"It was wonderful." She kissed him once more. "So, you've felt like that for a long time?"

"Longer than you could possibly imagine. You're so amazing Cameron, and I just wanted to tell you how I felt everyday. But I didn't want to in case you just laughed at me, or turned me away. I didn't think I could cope. The truth is, I love you Allison. I love you with all my heart."

He used my first name. He must mean it. Cameron held the back of his neck and their faces were just a breath away. She closed her eyes and tried to make herself believe that this was all real. Gregory House had just told her that he loved her. Those three little words meant so much coming from him, it was unreal. Cameron leant her forehead against his and she could feel his warmth breath on her face. House shut his eyes too, but continued to talk.

"I always have, and I always will. You're gorgeous, intelligent, and funny. You're not afraid to argue with me, and you don't mind the banter I give you. You're just so amazing, and I don't think I could ever be with anyone else. You're everything to me and I've come to realise that I need you. I can't live without you Cameron." Cameron pulled her face away from his and looked deep into his eyes. He looked a little embarrassed, and his beautiful blue eyes were glistening in the dark. House rolled his eyes. "I know that probably sounds really corny, but it's Valentine's Day, I'm allowed."

Cameron's eyes filled with tears again, and she laughed.

"I love you." said Cameron, half laughing, half crying.. House picked her up as he kissed her, squeezing her tight.

"I have another surprise." said House as he put her down. "Open the locket."

Cameron clicked open the locket and looked inside. On one half of the locket on a piece of card, fitted exactly to the shape of the locket it said: To My Beautiful Valentine. All my love, Greg. X

Cameron looked up at House and kissed him.

"This is so amazing, House. I'll cherish it forever. What do I put in the other side?"

"Well, we'll have to get a picture of us at one of those photo booths and you can put it in."

House smiled, so pleased with himself.

"Come on, we should go back in." said Cameron, tugging at House's hand.

"Not yet." said House and he took Cameron's face in his hands and kissed her passionately. All his desire, lust, and love pouring out through his lips. He wanted to feel his tongue on hers again. Cameron kissed back even harder. House had never felt happiness like this before and all he wanted to do was be with Cameron. She would make him happy; and he knew it.

Cameron knew that today was special. She had had the most wonderful Valentines Day ever, but it was special for another reason. Today was the day that Greg House gave her his heart; and what could be a better Valentines present?
