[Set at the end of 2.16 Safe.]



House could scarcely believe it. Even sitting as he was on the floor, his cane snapped in two and watching Wilson’s smarmy little walk away from the scene, House could only smile, shaking his head with a fondness that he’d hardly had cause to feel before. Wilson had finally started pranking him back.


Grinning, House collected the pieces of his cane and pushed awkwardly to his feet, ignoring for the moment the twinges of pain shooting up his leg as he hobbled back towards the elevator, his mind already focussing on the payback he’d bestow upon Wilson.


“House?” Still grinning, House looked up; the pieces of his cane clutched almost lovingly in his hand as he waited for the elevator to arrive.


“Foreman.” House greeted, watching as Foreman’s eyes flickered over his broken cane, an eyebrow raising itself in question.


The elevator door pinged open and House limped his way inside, turning to face Foreman with a bemused sort of smile.


“Wilson broke my cane.” He replied to the unasked question, sighing in a manner that bespoke his happiness of the fact.


Foreman stared at him a moment before smiling back, shaking his head at his employer as he stepped into the lift beside House. If it had been anyone else, Foreman was sure they’d be staring at House as if he’d finally grown the second head they’d been waiting for but never seriously expected to see. If it had been anybody else… Foreman smiled wider, refusing to look over and witness House’s continued good humour.


Only Wilson could make House that happy about snapping his cane.

:D Thank you! I simply loved that bit at the end when House smiled after Wilson and just had to write something to finish it off, I'm very happy you liked it.

(And thanks for commenting on my header! I'm rather pleased with it since I only used the Microsoft Paint programme to make it!)

I'm rather surprised myself just what I managed to do with that programme, but I suppose perserverance pays off eventually as I can't stop staring at Hugh/House whenever I click onto my journal, haha.

I had thought about posting the basic version of this (without the fandoms) but I wasn't sure if anyone would be interested ::shrug:: maybe I will though :)

I love the smile on House's face at end of that scene. Great use of it.

It really was the most adorable smile, wasn't it? Makes me sigh happily every time I see it, heh.

Thank you for reading and liking :)

I really like this, it's just so very *House*. Limping into the elevator and grinning as he says "Wilson broke my cane."

(PS: canes doesn't need an appostrophe.)

Thanks for the comment! I'm very glad I managed to get House down alright in this, especially with his grinning ;)

CS WhiteWolf

(I'm using 'cane's' in the singular sense, I thought there wouldn't be an apostrophe only if it were plural?)
(Anonymous) on August 1st, 2006 05:09 pm (UTC)
You're right about singular/plural, but since there isn't an object (the cane's something), it isn't ownership, either. I think it has to be either "Of a Snapped Cane" (singular) or "Of Snapped Canes" (plural), and either would work in the title.

Good job, BTW.

Ah, that makes sense when you think about it! I'll just remove the apostraphy then (I always have to think when I'm using them, lol). Thanks for pointing it out as well, most people would usually just sneer at/or ignore it, but I appreciate knowing.

Cheers! :)

This was lovely. The look on House's face was priceless and you've caught the mood of it spot on. I loved

Wilson had finally started pranking him back.

Didn't know 'prank' could be a verb ;) Works perfectly and really made me smile.

Thank you very much, I'm pleased you liked this piece as I'm rather proud of it myself. As for prank being a verb, well you're probably right in that it isn't one, but you know, writers progative and all that! heh

Thanks for reading :)
