Tabitha Hawthorne
I think your feet are warmer than mine.

Tabitha's good feelings, while they were still simmering under the surface, were slowly being smothered by the awkwardness of this interaction. She couldn't seem to be able to get her blush to disappear and she was almost absolutely certain that she would never be able to look Nathan in the eye ever again without either blushing furiously or dissolving into uncontrollable giggles.

"I'm sorry," she laughed before breathing deeply, trying to compose herself. "Yes, it was wonderful. One of the best nights of my life."

She took another deep breath and nodded to herself. They were clearly both knackered and it was a ridiculous time in the morning and she didn't know about Nathan but she could kill for a cup of tea. She looked at her surroundings, getting her bearings and realised that they were close to the staff lounge. She looked at him and pointed in the direction.

"Seeing as we're both up... do you maybe want to get a cup of tea? I could murder a cup myself."
