Despite having earlier saying that she wasn’t going to get blind drunk and be professional, it seemed what she was drinking was making her do the complete opposite. She didn’t give it a second thought that if Dean caught her getting drunk right now he would be unbelievably annoyed with her and would no doubt scold her like she was a child for it, but right now she didn’t care. She needed to do her job and forget about everything that was circling in her mind this evening. When Cason said it wasn’t like demons would just be out in the open, she rolled her eyes, ignoring the fact that he tried to stop her drinking, when back in the motel he was encouraging her to go against Dean’s wishes and make her drink. It actually baffled her in some ways, but she wasn’t going to bring focus to it, instead just focus on what he had to say. “I just want this job over with already, if this witch, demon or whatever is gonna make a move, then they should just so it already” she commented, when a drunk student slammed into her back, shoving her right into Cason and laughing about it, as she quickly grabbed onto his jacket to try and steady herself.
She felt glad that Cason actually grabbed her to keep her on her feet, and by doing so he inadvertently stopped her from starting a punch up with the student. She did however use the moment to quickly shoot intense daggers at the student behind her before looking back up at Cason, seeing him intensely looking at her wondering what he was thinking as he stared at her. She was completely oblivious that Annabeth was watching them from afar and that Mika had at some point left the brothers and came to watch over them like the mother figure she was capable of being when it suited her. Every part of Natalia wanted to scream and shout and protest at Cason touching her, to shrug him off and tell him to fuck off, but the cheap beer in her system was preventing her from doing so. “bloody teenagers...” she grumbled in annoyance to herself, “you can let go of me now” she then told Cason quickly after, but making no effort to remove herself from his grip either, instead just constantly looking up into his dark eyes fully aware that she was still holding onto him also. Her mind was a mess, filled with traumatic memories and alcohol making her not think straight in the slightest. The traumatic memories telling her to run from Cason, the beer telling her to stay in his grip.
In her slightly drunken state she could see why Mika slept with him, even if it was under Cupid’s spell, the guy was attractive, she couldn’t say otherwise but she also couldn’t get passed what he was. He wouldn’t be the first demon to pretend he actually cared about her welfare before backstabbing her.
Mika did start with the brothers but the idea of Natalia and Anna alone with Cason just concerned her far too much. She couldn’t get Natalia’s behaviour at the motel out of her head and was convinced if someone wasn’t there with them, something would happen that not even Annabeth could stop alone. So she told the brothers she was heading to where the party was and if they needed her to call straight away and she’ll run back to them. Sam agreed it was a good idea as he too was highly concerned about his sister’s rapidly declining behaviour. Sure, they had seen her have bad days with her PTSD before, but nothing like on this hunt.
Mika had been at the party long enough to see that Natalia was trying to drink far too much to be fully coherent as a hunter. It was concerning her greatly and she knew deep down she would have to send the boys a warning text sooner or later. For now, she just stayed near Annabeth and observed the whole situation with her when she saw how Natalia was getting terribly close to Cason. It made her grit her teeth and cross her arms in front of her chest, not out of jealousy but out of annoyance that it didn’t seem like Cason was doing much to push her away. From where Mika was standing, it looked like Cason was just taking advantage of Natalia’s state.
Then came the shove. The shove that pushed Nat right into Cason’s arms and the two of them looking at each other deeply. “I bloody hope not, but with how Nat is behaving it’s entirely possible. Just get ready for anything, when she’s remotely like this she can lash out really badly.” She warned Annabeth. Yet no attack was occurring, just a lot of staring and that unnerved Mika all the more, she knew of Natalia’s habit of getting drunk and having one night stands, and she prayed that Cason wasn’t going to be another one of those situations. “please don’t do anything stupid Nat...please for everyone’s sake and Dean’s blood pressure, don’t do anything stupid” she commented and prayed. “AB we better prepare for calling the boys for backup. Those two are putting me more on edge than this hunt is” she told the other sober and sane woman in the crypt.
