    I'm through with you

    I am wondering if these sentences sound natural.

    Re: I'm through with you

    The spoken words are OK but they'd make more sense as one sentence.

    "Apologise now or I'm through with you!"

    You need to remove the full stop from inside the quotation marks, replace it with the exclamation mark and add a comma outside the quotation marks.

    "Apologise now or I'm through with you!", Peter said to David.

    Consequently, it is only one sentence so your opening question would be "I am wondering if this sentence sounds natural."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
