"It's called multitasking," Katherine snorted. "Talking and drinking can happen at once, no? Don't tell me you're a light weight?"

Per his request she opened a few boxes in search of a couple of glasses. She found two unmatched glasses, but they would have to do; she passed both of them to him before moving back to her plate of food. Between the last minute move and the new victim, Katherine had unfortunately had little time to take care of herself. Truth be told, she didn't even really like Chinese food, but the hunger in her stomach demanded a sacrifice, so she forced a few bites down.

"I've been told very little about the intimate details of the findings," she said, eyeing him where he sat. "I know that there has been at least fourteen victims attributed to a specific hitman. I know that there has been a surprising lax of evidence found to identify the guy and I also know that the victims don't tend to share any characteristics other than the fact that they all tended to have pissed off a few people - not surprising in light of their murders."

Once he had poured the wine, Katherine took a sip, letting the smooth taste remain in her mouth for a moment before swallowing. She took a few more bites of her food before turning to examine the rest of the boxes scattered around. Many of them would be easy to empty because they held larger and fewer items; others were filled with smaller nicknacks that were area specific. A sigh on her lips, she pulled her hair back from her face and tied it up in a ponytail. As she did, a scar - bright and potentially fresh - appeared just below the meeting point of her jaw and her ear.

She began to put dishes into the cabinets, reaching what she could. She had a step stool somewhere, but instead of searching for it to reach the higher shelves she instead placed them on the counter.

"So what exactly do you know about this guy?" she asked coldly. "You've been lead on this team for quite a while and supposedly you're pretty good. I'm surprised I haven't been given more evidence to work with."
