So this is it I guess. My first multichapter came to its end. I hope you
enjoyed reading it just as much as I was enjoying to write it. Here you
go the last part -- hopefully not too fluffy. Reviews are appreciated.
And as always -- if you see any mistake, please let me know, I'm trying
but it's not that easy, believe me ;-)
Unnecessary disclaimer: I wish -- but sadly -- House still is not mine!
She was able to keep the conversation light, away from any serious
topics that might be in any way uncomfortable for him. Cameron learned
her lesson -- if you wanted to find out anything from House that even
remotely resembled feelings, you had to wait and let him do it on
his terms and in the time he chose. She knew that any kind of pressure
would actually only achieve one thing -- he would crawl back to his
shell using maximum artillery of his sarcasm in the meantime. So it was much
more reasonable to let him enjoy this evening and wait for his move. Though, she certainly hoped that this time he will speed things up. Otherwise it was
quite possible that they will be able to start their relationship
sometimes next to her fortieth birthday and she definitely wasn't in the
mood to wait this long.
It was right past midnight when they left the bar. She was the one who
had to pay the bill -- as House remarked with the mischievous smirk:
"after all you solved the puzzle almost crushing my ego and
self-esteem -- the least you can do is to make sure that I have enough
free alcohol to dull the pain of shuttered dreams".
She had no other choice than to pay but not before she pointed out her doubts about any possible harm to his ego: "Well I just can't imagine anything that could really get into you" she said still smirking at the very thought.
Right this moment House became serious and the mood started to get thick as the haze outside. "Actually you can" he admitted quietly. "I needed to tell you something from sometime. I just couldn't do it while I was sober and the fact that you had your more than average dosage of alcohol is definitely an added bonus. So here it goes – I think I might not be totally against the idea of us together in a relationship. And..." He wanted to say something more but was cut off by Cameron's lips.
This was their beginning. They knew that it would never be an easy relationship, that it was going to consist of many tears and angry words but they could live with those as long as there were some happy moments too. And there were.
