Fandom: House MD
Characters: Lisa Cuddy, Arlene Cuddy, (mention of Greg House) GEN-fic
Notes: Drabble-A-Day 2011 Day 90. Prompt from lauriedonachy, who wanted something with Cuddy and her mom. Beta'd by michelleann68. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Sometimes even Cuddy needs her mother.
The last thing Cuddy wants to do is tell her mother that she’s broken up with House.
She can pretty much imagine the conversation, right down to the barely concealed smirk on Arlene’s face. The whole thing will come down to a litany of Cuddy’s failures as a woman; the same song she’s been singing for years culminating in inevitable refrain of “I told you so”.
But somehow the whole thing comes out the minute she walks in the door, and for a change, Mom manages to say the one thing Cuddy needs to hear.
“You did the right thing.”
