"If you're going to call me Miss DeLise, please do it behind my back," Katherine groaned, glancing up at him. Had he always been that tall? She was convinced that one day he'd trip over her and squash her like a bug. "I hate being called that. Katherine is fine." She sorted a few more boxes into the bedroom before returning to the kitchen to collect her wine glass, not nearly intoxicated enough to truly be herself in front of a coworker, let alone her boss. She finished it off. "But anyway, that's nice of you to say."

Being nice to him was hard. She didn't like being so much smaller than him. Perhaps it was tiny-chihuahua complex, but Katherine felt extremely intimidated by him, both by status and gender. Although he spoke kindly, often shyly, she didn't feel that he was that way at all. There was an intentionality to the way he spoke, to the way he moved, and Katherine couldn't figure him out.

Katherine ditched the wine for a spike lemonade. She struggled for a moment to twist off the top - why not just make them regular pop-offs? - before succeeding and tossing the top into the trash. "Anyway, Jett, you're kind of weird," she said with a small laugh, the alcohol making her more honest than she normally was. "I don't think I've met anyone with your stature and looks who 'doesn't like attention' because it 'makes them uncomfortable'. I bet you go home and turn into a whole other person, with lots of ladies and booze who loves the attention." She grinned into the bottle before returning to the remaining few boxes.
