Blinking a few times as she seemed to almost consider it his offer of helping to write the song, he really didn't think of her actually wanting to. But it might just work, putting her in his world showing her how things work might actually bring her around enough to get her off his mind.
When she turned her attention he leaned back in his chair, taking a sip of his wine he thought more about it the idea seemed like a joke before... But now? He was not to sure if she would be up to it, he just needed inspiration. Maybe helping her find someone? Or something. "Can I ask a personal question?" though it was sudden, it obviously not like him at this point he wanted to know. "Do you like anyone?" though the idea of her thinking he was asking if she like him crossed his mind, but it was so far fetched he hoped it wouldn't cross hers he would rather avoid that argument.
