You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

SH: Yes I was just passing the store and I thought we needed milk. I bought four gallons.
JW: Thank you... please leave on whole entire gallon free from experimentation. And I don't mean between the four jugs- I want one whole jug to myself!
SH: But I've gotten them for a purpose. What do you mean leave a whole gallon? I need them.
JW: I should have known. You only told me because you didn't want me to use them, didn't you?
SH: Yes. They are in the fridge. I will be back later. For now, Lestrade has me at a new case. Solved easily, leave my milk alone.

The chocolate bar had no note to tell the ten year old blonde boy who had placed it under his pillow. Instead, a drawing of a pumpkin (jack-o-lantern, rather) with a crown and what could pass for a scepter was sketched onto a scrap of paper beside the candy. Uncertainly, Mello shoved the drawing into his pocket and climbed out of the bottom bunk of the bed he shared with Near, leaving the chocolate bar untouched on his white sheets.
Roger had informed him when he first arrived at Wammys a few months ago that Halloween was one of their most important holidays; a near-religious celebration that lasted all day. Still, when Near and their other roommate Matt had attempted to wake him up at 7 in the morning for the beginning of the party, he had pulled the covers over his head and flatly refused to move.
The party Mello rolled his eyes, he would have to join it eventually. Without bothering to get dressed (it was Halloween after all, this was just his costume

He must have been left there sometime during the night, but why, or by whom, was quite unknown - only a small note, tucked up within the baby’s tiny first, offered any kind of explanation to his abandonment. ‘Peter Parker. This boy is special – please look after him’ was all that it read. Immediately after he was determined not to be a threat, the baby boy had been taken in, and on Director Fury’s orders, had be placed under the care of the S.H.I.E.L.D agents who were to raise him as one of their own…Not A Weakness3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"What?" Dark blue orbs narrowed at the musician.
"Do you... ever, uhm, wash your hair?" he asked timidly. "I mean... the dreadlocks and all... not that you smell or anything!" he said quickly.
Xaldin stood up straight, towering over the Melodious Nocturne. "Do you ever fear for your life before Axel and Roxas put you up to this crap?" he asked, his lips pulling into a feral grin.
"Huh?" he looked genuinely befuddled; why, no one knew, because Demyx encountered more death threats than an ex-member of the Mafia.
