    They're OK. What did you think might be wrong with them?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2:

    Because because I was not sure about "She takes the call". I thought that maybe it was written otherwise.

    Thanks.

    I think it was written in the narrative present.

    Well, the present simple was certainly used. Without more context, we can only guess why.
