After having lunch and flirting for a while more, they go to see the Big Ben and walk around there again. They spent the rest of the afternoon, until it gets darker and they get tired. ‘Oh God... we’ve walked so much today... My heels are killing me...’
‘I just can't understand why women have to wear heels. If you're sightseeing, you're supposed to be walking the whole day...’
‘Yes, look. How tall are you? How tall am I?’
‘So, wewe just wear them so wewe can be taller??’
‘That’s what they’re made for... But when you're wearing them for a long time they hurt... a bit. Tomorrow I'll wear flat shoes to go to visit the museums.’
House nods. ‘Well you’re in pain and my leg needs some rest... shall we go to the hotel?’
When they get there, after having a shower, House lies on the kitanda and sighs.
‘Relaxed?’ Asks Cuddy.
‘You were like that when wewe were a kid? I know wewe since we went to college but actually I don’t know very much of wewe before that.’
‘Hmm... well, I was an only child... and I used to enjoy being alone. Other kids were just so silly to be my friends. When all kids around wewe are just focused on baseball and new sneakers, life it's not amazing.’
Cuddy frowns. ‘You were a lonely kid. So a bit like... now, right?’
‘I've always chosen my condition, the way I wanna be... And what about you? Have wewe always had that breathtaking figure au wewe were a fat, short girl with a spotty face and thick eyebrows covered with huge glasses?’
‘I was a little girl, slim and pretty clever for my age, but I wasn't a cool girl. I had good marks, some friends... wewe know, normal things.’
‘A common girl...’
‘No, I wasn't like other girls either. They always liked flirting with boys and some of them were really silly. I think I was a bit zaidi mature than them. I prefered to read a book than going out with a boy.’
House chuckles and jokes. ‘I thought wewe just were so boring in Michigan but I was wrong.Thank God you've changed!!’
‘Okay, then if I were so boring wewe wouldn't have been so interested in me when we were in Michigan.’
‘You had something special... something that caught my attention... it still does.’
Cuddy looks at him surprised but his no-typical-House-but-more-typical-Greg answer. ‘Seriously?’ House nods looking at her. ‘Oh... that deserves a kiss.’ She smiles and gives him a quick kiss. Then they stare, smile and hug each other for some sekunde that seem not to end. ‘I think... I... upendo you.’
‘I... upendo wewe too, Lisa.’ They kiss again, feeling what they’ve just said. She caresses his face with her hand, then he kisses her on her cheek and the lobe of her hear. Cuddy lies her head on his shoulder and then he hugs her and draws circles in her back with his finger.
‘Then... are wewe tired enough to sleep now?’
‘Wow Lisa, I didn't know this daring aspect of you!!’ He jokes and winks at her. ‘I always have energy for wewe honey.’
She keeps joking, both upendo doing that. ‘You sure? We don't need to go to a 24h pharmacy to get some blue pills?’
‘Have I ever disappointed you?’
‘Not yet, in this aspect.’
‘Then forget about those bloody blue pills.’
They kiss again and when they’re lying on bed, Greg bangs his head with the bed’s head. ‘Arg... that hurt!!’
‘Are wewe okay?’ Lisa kneels on the kitanda and looks at his head. ‘It's redden, and wewe have a small wound.’
‘Well, the bed's head didn't caress my head actually... it was zaidi like an agression.’
‘You feel dizzy au something?’
‘No, it just... hurts.’
‘Which is normal when you've just aliyopewa a blow...’
‘I've heard that if wewe get distracted kwa another thing wewe don't feel pain... it might be true, right?’ He kisses her again and she smiles.
‘Maybe... We can try it.’ She kisses him back passionately.
inayofuata morning, after a looong, looooong night they wake up and smile. ‘How's the pain? The distraction worked?’
‘Well, it actually did...’
‘Does it hurt now?’
‘Only if I touch it...’
‘Hmm let me see... It's a bit swollen. You’ll survive, maybe a little sillier than now but definitely you'll survive.’
They chuckle and he stands up. ‘I'm affraid you'll have to take your kuoga after me...’
‘No! Come on! wewe had a kuoga last night. Today's my turn first.’
‘Sorry.’ He closes the door. ‘I promise it will be a quick shower!!’
‘Quick and cold! And I advise wewe to take another very very cold tonight. You'll need it.’
‘You want me to be relaxed? Don't wewe wanna have a good time tonight?’
‘We’re not gonna have a good time tonight... Unless wewe get out of the kuoga in 5 minutes.’
When he finishes his shower, she goes to the bathroom. After some dakika she goes out wearing no-heels shoes.
‘No heels?? Wow!! Give me back the real Lisa!!!’
‘Hey I told wewe that today I wouldn't wear heels.’
‘Yeah, but I thought wewe couldn't stand that idea. I'm surprised, congratulations.’
‘Now wewe have to bend to kiss me. But don't worry, tomorrow I'll be wearing heels again, your back will apperciate it.’
‘Thanks for thinking about me. Anyway, wewe look good.’
‘Thank you. hujambo you're wearing the T shati I bought you. wewe look sexy’ She winks at him.
‘And I'm even sexier without it!! Grrr’ He winks at her exaggeratedly and she chuckles.
‘Well, we are clean, dressed and ready, shall we go?’
‘Okay, let's go. And calm down baby...’
‘Can't promise anything... We'd better go down kwa stairs just in case.’
She laughs. ‘Oh God... Let's go.’ She smiles, rolls her eyes and they get out of the room.
They get to the first museum they’ve planned to go, the Madame Tussauds museum. They spend there a couple of hours inside, taking a lot of pictures and watching the wax figures. It’s huge and really really well done.
‘Did wewe like wax celebrities?’
‘Yes! It was fun! Thank goodness I'm not wearing heels...’
‘I'm sure wewe would've fainted in case wewe wore them...’
‘Well I'm sure wewe would've been there to hold me... I hope so at least...’ House smirks and they go to have lunch to a nice pizzeria inayofuata to the museum. They have to start thinking of finishing this vacation and go back to work. Both are afraid of it because none of them want that what they have now, finish with this trip.
When they go back to Princeton, they’ll try to keep it how it is now, but both know that it will be very difficult. The situation will change even if they mgawanyiko, baidisha up au even if they stay together; what it’s clear is that there’s no turning back.
When they finish and rest for a while, then go walking to the Sherlock Holmes museum, which is not far from the Madame Tussauds one. They get Lost and it takes a bit longer than what they expected. ‘I upendo your sense of direction.’ Cuddy smiles widely at him.
‘We’d better do not talk about yours...’ He mocks at her.
They buy two tickets and go inside. There they, specially House, enjoy like a big kid. It’s getting late and they have to go to buy their airline tickets. On their way they talk about the museum.
‘Did wewe like it?? Is it as great as wewe imagined?’ Cuddy looks at him smiling.
‘Oh yeah, it is!! It was like being inside a Sherlock Holmes story!!’
‘I'm glad wewe like it! When we go back to New Jersey wewe have to lend me some of his books.’
They buy the airline tickets for the inayofuata siku and go back to the hotel to spend their last night in London. They’ve been walking the whole siku and they are very tired. Before they realize, they fall asleep.
In the morning, Lisa wakes up first. House is still asleep and she doesn’t wanna bother him. Yesterday they fell asleep so early that they have been sleeping for almost eleven hours. Cuddy looks at him sleeping and takes the chance to have her kuoga first. Some dakika later Greg wakes up with the sound of the water, then she goes out of the bathroom.
‘Early riser, uh??’
‘Yeah, we went to sleep early and I'm used to sleep a few hours... This way I had my kuoga first.’
‘How was the last night in London. Have wewe slept well?’
‘Like a baby’
‘Good.’ She smiles.
‘But I think it's still too early to get out of the bed... wewe could make and effort and try to be tired, couldn't you?’
‘I can make an effort and lay on the kitanda but I won't be tired.’
‘That will do.’
She lies inayofuata to him and he put his arm around her shoulders. ‘Did wewe enjoy this vacation?’
‘Very much. I needed it. You?’
Cuddy smiles. ‘But now it’s time to go back to work.’
‘Uh huh... Our flight leaves at 9 p.m. and we should be punished if we leave London without seeing the British Museum...’
‘It’s true. We have some hours left. Let’s go there and then we go back here to pick up our things and go to the airport.’
When they get dressed, they go to the British museum. It’s not very very crowded today and they enjoy it and spend the morning there. After their learning time, they have lunch and go back to the hotel to pick up their belongings and go to the airport.
