Zoe: "What you doing" Zoe asked while trying to get a look at what Jake was doing
Jake: He turns away from Zoe, finishing his notes. "Sorry, i don't let anyone see my writings. I'm writing a song." He bites the tip of his pen in thought, cocking his head to the side. "I haven't seen you here before. I'm Jake, i realize i wasn't very formal in saying so before." He holds out his hand.
Zoe: Zoe shakes Jake's hand then says "I could help my dad is the god of music so I'm good with that kind of stuff"
Jake: "Thanks, but i don't share my works with anyone. Sorry." He says, hoping it diesnt sound too mean.
