The two females in the equation registered briefly with Cuddy, but that old rumor was pretty much established back when Thirteen had been treating her one-night stands on hospital time.

Cuddy asked the question as neutrally as possible, now that she was done with her clearing, she leant against the counter to listen to the younger woman's tale.
Thirteen squinted curiously at her boss before replying, a wicked grin on her face for the first time since Cuddy had encountered her.
"I'd already fucked her in the bathroom. If the girlfriend had known that I'd have been showing up here in a body bag."
Startled by the frank confession, Cuddy was at a loss for what to say next. She felt her cheeks flush at the overly personal information, and the crudeness reminded her too much of House. He really was a bad influence on every single one of his fellows.
The laugh from Thirteen wasn't entirely unexpected, but it did ease some of the tension in the room.
"I guess I'm still a little drunk, Dr. Cuddy. Still, you don't seem too offended. I guess you hear a lot worse."
