He stood in the doorway of his office watching,
waiting.  Where was she?  She had told him she wanted
to meet him at 9 pm.   

9:15…16…17...  Time weighed heavy on him; it
compartmentalized his life into pain, more pain, and
unbearable.  It faltered arbitrarily, like his halting
gait, and slowed - seemingly at will.    He hated
waiting.  Waiting made time his master. “Shit” he said
to himself. He let the weight of his head fall back
and reveled briefly in the relief of tension.  These
kinds of moments were few but precious.  

She wasn’t usually this late. 

It wasn’t in his nature to wait for anyone.  He’d
shuffled through some pending paperwork and downloaded
a Chopin piece from the internet, but that had been
about twenty minutes ago. “What the hell am I doing
here?” he thought.  He reached for the light switch.
He lifted his cane to shut off the lights, but at that
moment a dark, unfamiliar feeling welled up inside of
him.  It was a feeling he’d seen in others, even in
the characters in his soap opera, but nothing he knew
resided in him. It was a yearning to connect,  even
for a moment, with someone who knew him. “Son of a
bitch” he said, loud enough for passersby to hear him.

His cane rose more quickly this time and he slammed it
against the switchplate with the full force of his
body behind it. 

Jagged edges of pain pulsated from a place deep within
his thigh and made him catch his breath. He quickly
replaced the cane at his side and started down the
hallway. 

“House?!” she called as he passed her.  “Bartender
wouldn’t find you a cab?” he replied.  As he turned
the corner she thought she heard him say, “Never again
Cuddy.  Never again.”
