Zoe: Is it ok if I sit with you? Emily: Of course! Iris is at string orchestra anyway. Speaking of which, you can come sit with us at recess and lunch if you like! We usually sit on the couch outside the locker room. Zoe: Haha, sure. It's ok. Emily: I mean it! Zoe: I know you're just offering to be nice but - Emily: Am NOT! I never just say stuff to be nice! I'm always genuine, for better or worse! Zoe: no... You're not like my other friends... (!) You - warned me!
