    Kevin and Ben were chasing Taylor, trying that he didn't notice

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Kevin and Ben were chasing Taylor, trying that he didn't notice. Suddenly, Ben turned around, and saw them walking behind him and threw a little object to the scaffold in the hallway. Kevin threw himself to the floor trying to rescue what seemed to be his amulet. However the scaffold collapsed and began to fall. Kevin tried to hold the scaffold but it was too heavy. Ben ran to his friend and helped him. Taylor started to ran to the front door of the theater to fly the scene."

    Thanks.

    Do you mean "Taylor" instead of "Ben?"

    Dear teechar:


    First fo all, thanks for your answer.


    "Suddenly, Ben turned around, and saw them walking behind him and"


    Yes, I mean Taylor instead of Ben, my mistake.






    "threw a little object to the scaffold in the hallway."


    Taylor in his scape threw an object, and evin threw himself to the floor, trying to catch what seemed to be his amulet. But after the people helped him, Kevin realized that it was just another deception, because that was not the amulet that his grandmother gave to him. Taylor still had it in his possession




    Thanks.

    Taylor, as he was trying to in his escape, threw an object, and Kevin threw himself to the floor, trying to catch what seemed to be his amulet. But after the people others helped him, Kevin realized that it was just another deception, because that was not the amulet that his grandmother gave to him. Taylor still had it in his possession

    Kevin and Ben were chasing Taylor, trying that he didn't notice.
    Hoping would work better than trying for me.

    Or "trying to make sure he didn't notice [them]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
