    Default ''splattered the walls of the hut''

    Hello again. Does it matter to put prepositions as in/at right of the verb to splatter? Thank you

    Do you mean "Should we put a preposition ("in" or "at") after the verb "to splatter"?"

    If so, the answer is no. The phrase is fine as it is.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    And if you want to on to say what the walls are splattered with, the preposition to use is ...er... 'with'.
