Ok, this is my first attempt at a House fanfic. I would LOVE reviews of any kind. I'm an artist in my everyday job so I have a tough skin. Warning, if you do not like new characters don't read this story. Thanks to all who take the time to read. OH, disclaimer I don't own any of the characters of House, M.D.
As she walked through the double doors of Princeton-Plainsboro hospital, Evelyn Rose McGarry traveled back in time. It was a happier time filled with friends, love and good old medicine. All the things she had been missing for the past ten years. When she left that day, she had told herself that is was for the best. Moving onward and upward but all it really did was make her more miserable, if that was possible. Yes, she made a name for herself as a world-renowned heart surgeon but at what cost. Evie, as her friends use to call her when she had friends, was alone. She had kept in touch with her friends in New Jersey, she actually talk to Lisa almost daily yet those calls still couldn't get ride of that empty feeling in her stomach. Evie missed that physical contact that being next to someone who cares about you fills.
Evie walked into the clinic quietly, she was trying to surprise her best friend with this unexpected visit. What she walked into was like a great old movie. A big smile spread across her faced as she watched two old lovers berating each other with insults. "When will these two learn?" she asked herself.
"Come on, Cuddles." Whined House.
"NO! How many times do I have to tell you House? You ARE NOT cutting this girl open!" Cuddy yelled back.
House started to inject with another snide remark when Cuddy cute him off thrusting her hand in his face, "My decision is final. Move on!"
Evie decided that this would be a good time to make her presence known.
"Excuse me but I was looking for the Dean of Medicine and the great Dr. Gregory House." Evie yelled over top of all the commotion her two friends were creating.
The shock of seeing one of their closest friends standing before them left both Cuddy and House speechless. The look on their faces was priceless and Evie wish she had her camera handy. After a few seconds she decided to break the silence.
"So, are you to going to just stand there with your mouths hanging open? Or are you going to freaking say hello?"
"OH, MY GOD. What are you doing here?" Cuddy screamed as she ran to give her oldest friend a hug. House on the other hand just stood like a statue staring at the two women who were now hugging and giggling. Standing before Greg House was his past, his present and he sincerely hoped his future. These two strong, over confident, drop dead gorgeous woman have been in and out of his life for the past 20 years. Some of his fondest memories were with them, his "little sister" and the love of his life. The odd thing was that his worst memories and events had these women as wall. These women, god how he loved them. House was broken out of his trance by the sound of his name.
"House! House! Earth to House!" Evie yelled at her old boss and friend.
"OH, hey, Rosie, Rose. To what do we owe this pleasure?" House approached the giggling women.
"Yeah, What are you doing here?" asked Cuddy still with her armed wrapped around Evie's waist
"Ah, kind of a long story guys. Can we go to an office to discuss it more?" As the trio walked towards Cuddy's office, Evie couldn't keep the small off of her face.
