Hey, babe.You are staying here. I'm back soon.
The above is correct, isn't it?
And "You are staying here"means "You must stay here", but is more polite.
Am I right?
Thank you in advance.

Sera continues to look at him almost defiantly. # BEN # Maybe it's time I moved to a hotel. # SERA # And do what... rot away in a room? (becoming angry) We're not going to talk about that. Fuck you! I will not talk about that. You 're staying here.

Friend: Well, I planned to stay at the Crown Hotel ...
You: No, you're welcome to stay here.
Friend: Well, that's good of you. But I don't want to put you out.
You: Not at all. You're staying here.
