Never in a million years did Katie ever believe she'd end up with her Sargent. One day after a very tough shift, the relief ended up at the Seven Belles for a pint. Katie had sat with most of the women of the relief, chatting up a storm of who made the most arrests or who had the tougher jobs.

She was in the middle of a conversation with her best friend, Sally Armstrong, when the males of the relief made their way over.

"You alright, girls" hollered the flirtatious Nate Roberts.

"Of Course we are Nathaniel, we've got our alcohol!" Laughed Katie

"Alright alright, what you girls chatting about then, eh?"

"Oh well you know, just how dreamy the males on this team are!" Replied Sally, making the group of females crack up with laughter.

The boys joined the girls, with a certain Sargent Smith sitting next to a blushing Katie.

What the relief, bar Sally and Millie brown (Another PC), didn't know that Miss Katie Payne had a massive crush on Sargent Dale Smith.

After a few drinks, most of the team were hammered. This included Smithy and Katie. Slowly but surely, the team headed out until it left Smithy, Katie, Sally and Nate in the bar. "Well, I'm going to head home, I'm going to have a massive hangover and I'm on shift in the morning" said Sally.

"I'll come with ya" said Nate, grabbing his coat.

"We live in the same direction so we can share a cab"

Katie said good bye to her friend and started to think about leaving.

"Another drink,Sarge?" Asked Katie.

"No, I think it's best we both leave, we are on the late shift tomorrow"

They both grabbed their coats and headed for the door.

As they stepped outside, Katie realised how cold it was so grabbed her arms, trying to warm herself up.

"You cold?" Asked Smithy.

"A little, but I'll be fine" Katie said, all whilst her teeth chattered.

"Come 'ere" Smithy said offering his arm.

Katie Blushed, which did not go unnoticed by her senior officer.

They caught each other's eye, and both leaned in. Their lips met and in turn the kiss became more heated.

Some how that night, things got very romantic.
