"Funny. And just a few minutes ago you said you weren't flirting with me." Kat countered. She just had to say it. Actually just to tease him, but she was said it as if she was being serious. "You barely know even know me."
"You make a fool of yourself if you get up and leave." she said honestly, yet only for him to hear. "Because that would make it look like you don't know what you want. And you don't seem like that kinda guy."
Kathleen had gently grabbed his hand before she spoke to him, making sure he didn't leave just like that, but now, with everything said, she let go of him, but watched him closely.
She let her gaze wander around the club, just to make sure that everything was okay. But she would have to leave at the first sign of trouble. But for now everything was quiet and peaceful.
The waitress came up to them and Kath ordered a drink for herself and one for Jason. "Get him what he had before. It's on me." Kathleen said.
"Well then let's start over." Kath added, once the waitress was gone to get their drinks. "You may have noticed... I'm not into beating around the bush, that way you'll never get past my guard."
"Well, you really should take relaxing more seriously." she gently teased him. But she was also being a little bit serious about it.
So whether or not he just mentioned there might be more, for Kath it was more about friendship for now than about romance. Because without friendship, she didn't want to try romance anymore. After all, she did want to say that she was going to marry her best friend, if she got married at all.
She looked at Jason with a slightly raised brow and shrugged a little. "Whether or not there might be more is an issue of the future... so I guess we'll see about that." Kathleen replied honestly, yet in a friendly kind of way, not to be rejecting, because that would have been way too soon.
"Of course we do." she replied with a hint of pride in her voice. Sometimes she began to wonder why Americans were so surprised about that. But Kath was never offended by it, after all, she wasn't too pratriotic.
"Whatever. As if I would know." she replied casually, shrugging her shoulders.
But then again, she didn't want to seem rude, so she offered him a small smile anyway.
American, or English-speaking people in general had their own, unique way of talking German and if someone hasn't spoken German in Germany for a very long time, it was more than hearable in the way they spoke. They just don't get rid of their English way to say pronounce certain words. But it wasn't a bad thing, in fact, it made things a little more interesting.
"Not that it's a bad thing."
Well, maybe he wasn't such a bad guy after all. Maybe it was worth a try getting to know him and maybe, and a huge maybe on this one, they'd become friends or more than that. Would be nice not to be alone anymore.... Kathleen thought to herself. But he's got a little girl... think you're the adopted-mom-kinda woman? Why not?

Don't worry about it, no harm done
"Uh... you always that quick to invite strangers to meet your daughter?" she said reluctantly.
