It was siku to remember for Chase and Cameron since this was the siku when they’re new house is being blessed. All family and Marafiki were there to celebrate with them and all were wearing smiles as they catch up with each other. House, although staying with the boys, was looking directly at Cuddy who was then with the girls. She was wearing her moyo melting smile while carrying one of Cameron’s nieces. He could see how she craves to be a real mother herself but he fears to be a father himself.
Later that evening, Cuddy was seated on her kitanda with her back against the headboard. She was kusoma the new memo passed kwa the board to her that morning while a cup of chai was waiting to be drank on her nightstand. House went out her bathroom while wiping his hands with a hand towel. He looked at her who was seriously kusoma the folder and alisema the line below with a plain voice.
House: I can’t find some band-aid in the jikoni kit, I looked at your medicine cabinet in the bathroom after and I happened to see… birth control pills…
Cuddy looked at him kwa the time he uttered the word “control”. Both were serious as they exchange suspicious looks.
House: I have to know what’s going on here…
Cuddy sighed as she took a sip from her tea.
Cuddy: You’re angry that ---
House: I’m not mad at you… I’m just upset that ---
Cuddy: wewe want kids?
Silence ate the bedroom for awhile.
House: No but --- <He sat down on the edge of the kitanda and he let the towel drop on the floor and sighed> wewe should have told me about it….
Cuddy: wewe knew that I were on them almost a mwaka now. Even before we got together, I am on them why suddenly wewe come running to me asking me this?
House: Because I have now the right to know what wewe are putting in your body because I am your boyfriend, reality check, boss.
Cuddy: <smiled> Oh don’t worry, I am not forgetting that idea… <She continued kusoma the folder>
House: I thought wewe want a baby…
Cuddy: I already have… Rachel’s here, remember?
House: <stammered> wewe do realize that that it’s different when it’s from you, right?
Cuddy looked at him.
Cuddy: Your point?
House: I know you’re getting what I mean to say ---
Cuddy: If wewe want a baby, just tell me then if I can give wewe one that’s the end of this conversation.
House was surprised with what she’d said. He rolled his tongue on his teeth as Cuddy looked at him with one eyebrow arched.
House: I didn’t ----
He was stunned with Cuddy calling him sternly like before. He was thinking Cuddy would call him “Greg” this time but she didn’t. He sighed and stood up and his eyes weren’t meeting hers.
Cuddy: Where are wewe going?
House: <Putting his coat> Home…
Cuddy: I thought you’re going to stay here for the night…
House: Changed my mind… <He went out the room with his keys at hand>
kwa inayofuata morning, House met up with Wilson outside the hospital. They were seated opposite each other as House was smoking a cigar. Wilson shook his head whenever his friend puffs.
Wilson: Does Cuddy know you’re smoking?
House: Uh-huh. She does too.
Wilson: Yah but not like you. <He picked the cigar box on the bench> wewe almost empty the box.
House: <puffs> I just need to get the hell out of my brain.
Wilson: Patient problem?
Wilson: Cuddy? <House didn’t smile instead he puffed again> Thought wewe slept in her place last night?
House: I nearly did. We fought over a small thing…
Wilson: It isn’t small, House, wewe wouldn’t fight over a small thing. Sure it’s a big thing.
House: Wilson, a small thing is a small thing. <Puffed and silence> We fought over a birth control pill.
Wilson scoffed and tried not to laugh some more.
Wilson: Oh… <giggled> So, what about the pill?
House: She’s taking them…
Wilson: I suppose wewe knew that ion years ago. Who cares, actually it’s good she’s taking them.
House: No, it’s not.
Wilson: Unless wewe want kids then ---
House: She told me that too. Women are complicated. Yesterday it’s icey cold then suddenly it’s greenhouse effect. --- I thought she wanted her own.
Wilson: Cuddy knows what she wanted, House. Maybe it’s wewe who wanted babies and take note of that –ies I placed in the end. B-A-B-I-E-S.
House puffed and finished his cigar.
