"Hey how are you feeling?" Rick Castle asked as Kate strode into the precinct. She had left early yesterday.

"Why do you care?" Kate said frustrated. "


"Don't call me Kate," She spat at him. You've got Chassidy now. Go take care of her."

"Oh is it that time-"


"You're jealous," Rick smirked at her.

"I'm not jealous."

"She doesn't mean anything."

"Then how can you date her?"

"She's a red herring. I'm only dating her because I can't date you."


"That guy you're seeing."

"But I'm not seeing anyone," Kate blushed.

"Then she's gone," Rick smiled.
