Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 63

Tell us what’s happening: i saw someone else had posted this, but i was unable to work through it - not sure if i have the concept incorrect or my formatting is just poor.

Describe your issue in detail here.
trying to call my function using text and custom_key, but i dont know how to assign my return value as a variable ?
also any help with python indenting would help as well

Your code so far

text = 'Hello Zaira'
custom_key = 'python'

def vigenere(message, key):
    key_index = 0
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in message.lower():
    
        # Append space to the message
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
        else:        
            # Find the right key character to encode
            key_char = key[key_index % len(key)]
            key_index += 1

            # Define the offset and the encrypted letter
            offset = alphabet.index(key_char)
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + offset) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]

    return encrypted_text
vigenere(text,custom_key)
return encrypted_text
    encrypted_text= encryption
