With Jett now looking down to her, asking her if she had more to say, Katherine suddenly felt very small next to her new boss. She refused to look back up at him, not wanting her presence and authority to be diminished by their differences in size. Even in her heels, slight as they were, she only came up to the lowest point of his chin.

"No, I think that's all for now," she replied with a nod. Her gaze returned to Dr. Gray. "Please contact me as soon as you have your initial findings. My number is on this card." She passed him her business card, which he gladly accepted.

"Of course, Lieutenant, I'll be in touch," he grinned, expression cheeky.

She noted his interest in her, shoved it into the pocket of her brain, and decided to forget about it. She waited for the two to head on towards the body before she took a step forward and swiveled so she was standing before Jett. From her pocket she produced a pack of cigarettes, one of which she removed, then replaced the pack and wrapped her painted lips around the end. She lit it after a moment with an expensive looking lighter - a gift from an ex - and after a drag blew the smoke at Jett's feet.

"I've only been given an overview of the case so far," Katherine sighed, the smoke curling through the air around her brunette locks, "and I was told you would talk to me a little bit about what we know. Now, I've just come from a twelve hour shift and I'd like to get to my new apartment to finish unpacking and setting up."

Her cold dark eyes met his green, clashing against them. "If you're willing to exchange some leftover Chinese takeout and a glass of wine for a little manual labor to help me out, we could go ahead and have that discussion today." She paused to release another stream of smoke. "Or, if you're eager to get back to the station and continue being oh-so-successful at solving these murders by yourself, then that's fine as well. Regardless, I'm leaving. All of my contact information, including my address, was emailed to you likely within the hour."

Katherine dropped the remainder of her cigarette and smothered it with her heel with a twist. She left without waiting to see what he was going to do, not caring that it was disrespectful. She didn't care about this place. She'd come because they made her and she wasn't about to let a man who had been highly unsuccessful at his job call the shots. A scowl playing with her lips, she backed her Jeep off the sidewalk and rejoined the streets just in time for some enjoyable afternoon traffic.
