Title: Gregory House: The Early Years Author: LilyHobbitJedi Characters: House, John and Blythe House, Wilson, Cuddy, Stacy Genre: Drama, Angst, Humor Summary: Ever wonder about House's early life that has been shrouded in such mystery? Well this story covers it all ranging from his birth, to his college days, and the infamous infarction. It also will cover House's relationship with his parents. AN: This is a something I?ve wanted to write for a long time. I know stories about House?s childhood have been written before and I?m not trying to copy, but to put my own spin on things. The main reason being that the stories out there don?t seem to encompass every little facet about House?s life before the show and this is my attempt to fix that. Some of the events that will be covered in this story range from everything from House living in Japan and Egypt, his relationship with his parents, his attending Michigan and being kicked out of Johns Hopkins, meeting Stacy and Cuddy, the infarction, getting hired at PPTH and of course meeting Wilson. I plan on trying to be as accurate with the information revealed as possible, but of course some things are left to the imagination. This story will end right where the show starts. I hope you all enjoy my first attempt in our beautiful new NSWFF forum! Disclaimer: House is owned by David Shore, I?m just borrowing his characters for a little while. Gregory House: The Early Years Chapter 1: 1958-1959 Blythe House looked at the doctor in growing shock and wonder. The news she just learned was the most joyous one she could imagine, and Blythe couldn?t wait to tell her husband. For she just learned that she was pregnant, something she?d been hoping for ever since she married John House. And now her wish was going to be fulfilled, she would soon be a mother. She wondered how John would take the news. He was a stern man what with being a Marine, but he was kind and Blythe loved him dearly. As much as she longed for a child, it was never something they discussed. She prayed that he would be receptive to the news, but then having a baby was one of the greatest pleasures of life. When John returned home from work that evening, Blythe tried to decide the best way to reveal the news to her husband. Luckily he seemed in high spirits that day, and she made it better by making his favorite meal. ?Thank you dear,? John said looking down at the plate Blythe set before him. ?You?re welcome,? Blythe replied with a smile. ?So how was work today?? That was the magical question, for John loved his work more than nearly everything else. He was fiercely proud of the fact that he was a Marines pilot, and could spend several hours telling every little detail about his job. Blythe was on the receiving end of this on more than one occasion, but that was one more reason why she loved him. ?It was great dear, though I had to teach a rookie a lesson he?ll never forget,? John commented vaguely for a change, taking a large bite of his steak. ?How was your day?? Blythe took a deep breath, and knew that now was the time. ?It was wonderful John. I went to the doctor today and he said that I?m,? and she suddenly faltered looking at her husband?s curious face. ?Pregnant.? John?s eyes widened and he swallowed. ?A baby,? he said in a quiet voice. ?Isn?t that a surprise.? Blythe couldn?t tell if he was upset or not, but she decided to test the waters. ?Are you unhappy?? she asked. ?Are you kidding?? John asked shocked. Then his face broke into a smile. ?That?s wonderful news Blythe. We?re going to be parents!? Blythe sighed in relief. ?I?m so happy you think so,? she said. ?I?m due in June.? ~~~~~ ?John, give me your hand,? Blythe said, beaming. John, who was very nearly outside the door, paused and turned to his wife. ?I have to go--,? he started to say, before a look of disappointment crossed her features. He walked to her, and put his hand in hers. ?Our baby is kicking,? Blythe said joyfully. ?The child is quite impatient already.?
