Summary: Chase is watching Wilson and Wilson wants to know why.
Author’s Notes: Short, very strange, and not entirely in character, but who gives a damn, right? Better fic will arrive next week when I have more time.



Chase has been watching him all day, biting his thumbnails in a way that would be suggestive if it didn’t look so nervous, and Wilson says nothing in response because he realises he’ll have to wait and see exactly what it is Chase wants.

~

His eyes are unnaturally blue, with hints of grey and hazel in them, and when he catches Chase looking Wilson doesn’t ask why and Chase doesn’t have the grace to look embarrassed, he just keeps on gazing at him with those eyes, and Wilson isn’t sure why it doesn’t bother him the way it should.

~

House laughs and seems to know something Wilson doesn’t, but then he always does, it’s part of what makes him House, and he sits on the wall between their balconies and tells Wilson that in the film Titanic Rose says Jack’s name 80 times and Jack says Rose’s 50 times, and they’re not playing poker but it winds Wilson up all the same.

~

Chase fans a deck of cards out over the table and plays patience with them in a manner that just looks bored, like he’s not even paying attention as the pieces of card move under his hands, and House and Wilson watch him through the glass, until he gets stuck with three cards and nowhere to put them and Wilson murmurs “Checkmate” and House replies “That’s chess” but neither of them are really listening to each other.

~

The King of Clubs is on the floor under the table when Wilson comes into the office to put in his two cents, and his eyes flicker to the card and then to Chase, but Chase has stopped looking at him, and is instead staring out of the window like he can see things no one else can.

~

Cameron doesn’t understand what’s going on and if he’s honest neither does Wilson, except that Chase isn’t speaking at all now, just watching and waiting and counting and shuffling his playing cards between his hands, and Cameron’s fingers twist like she’ll have an answer eventually when they’re all pretty sure she won’t.

~

Wilson doesn’t pretend to know the game Chase is playing and suspects Chase doesn’t know either, so he pockets the King of Clubs and pinches the bridge of his nose to ward off a migraine and he thinks House may have worked it out because the look on his face could only described as smug.

~

The blinds of his office are shut and Wilson isn’t even surprised when he pushes open the door to find Chase completely naked and sitting on his desk, like he’s waiting for something, but Wilson is slightly surprised when Chase gets to his feet and slinks over to kiss him, because everything suddenly makes sense and he’s not sure whether he’s got the self-restraint to say ‘no’.
