In my language, we have only three tenses. Thus, it is super difficult for me to catch the point of usage of all twelve in English :)
Anyway, I decided to challenge myself and practice it by trying. Can I kindly ask you if past tense is correct in a sentence:
"Let me alone!" screamed Mendric when a circle of the seven characters surrounding him becoming smaller and smaller. "I did nothing to you!".
(Mendric is a name).
I am trying to express a fact that Mendric was screaming while the people were coming closer and closer.
