    What does this below bolded expression mean?

    here?’ ‘I was pretty sure you’d figure it out,’ she says, butting her butt and standing up, ‘but I was starting to worry. I was going to call you if you weren’t here by eleven-thirty. I’m taking my Lexapro, Mr Hodges.’

    Is she smoking a cigarette in this scene?

    Yes, she was smoking. Here's the proceeding scene.

    A teenage girl is sitting on the curb in front of the store, knees together and feet apart, bent studiously over an iPad. A cigarette smolders between the fingers of her left hand.

    Thank you.

    So, it's like "stubbing out her cigarette". (P.S., "...the preceding scene" :).)
