    Hossein, for the second time a better title would have been mine demanded.

    The noun "girls" requires the article "the" before it.

    "The girls reappeared (hyphen not needed) and mine demanded to go home". In this use "mine" refers to "my girl"; she was one of the girls and she wanted to leave wherever you were.

    I assume this post refers to thread titles. If so, thank you. We look forward to your next thread with a relevant title.

    Note that you must capitalise the word "I" at all times.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
