Katherine's face filled with color instantly. Yeah she did. Shit. What was she doing? Placing her drink upon the counter, the smoothed a hand over her hair, letting her fingers drag through the end of her ponytail. Between the sleep deprivation and the alcohol, she'd put herself in a precarious place. This is what she got for drinking, even though she knew how she got when she did. She'd let her guard down surprisingly far for him, considering what he meant to her professional career.

Her mindset changed very quickly. She rounded the counter into the kitchen and ran a little water through her hands to pat upon her face, as if it would refreshen her and extract all of the stupidity of the last hour or so.

Her eyes flickered to the clock over the microwave. "Hey Jett, that's enough for now," she called over her shoulder. "It's getting late and I really do need to be going to bed."

She took a deep breath and for a few moments she felt like that was enough. Katherine, as someone who had always had to work her hardest in order to gain respect for what she did, was drawing a not-so-great picture of herself in Jett's eyes. And even though she was attracted to him, she didn't want that tainting her image. If he wasn't her boss, and if she'd been a little more drunk, well... Perhaps it would've been a different story.

Once satisfied that she could face him again, she turned back around the kitchen to stand by the bar, watching him with tense eyes. "Like I said earlier, just sorting the boxes out for now helps immensely. I should be able to knock out the rest of it tomorrow night, assuming we're not preoccupied." She paused, then added, "With the case. I'm sure you're tired too after a long day, so it's probably best to stop here."
