    Where do the commas go

    where do the commas go.

    WESLEY JUMPED OFF HIS OLD RUSTY BIKE. BENDING LOW TO THE GROUND HE CREPT TOWARDS THE HAUNTED HOUSE. AS HE REACHED THE DOOR A HUGE SPIDER LEAPT INTO HIS HAIR WITH A LOUD SQUEAK. REACHING OUT HIS SHAKING HAND HE RATTLED THE DOOR HANDLE. THE ANCIENT DOOR CREAKED MOANED AND GROANED.

    Hello unregistered,

    I would definitely put commas after the following words: ground, hand, creaked, and moaned.

    The comma would seem optional after the words old and door (first use).
