I need help with punctuating a couple of sentences. I can't quite figure out what to do with them, and I have to make a decision. So, here they are.
He could have taken the monster by himself, if he wanted.
Dagan didnít care for children; they were loud and underfoot, but the woman wanted them; so, for her, he attempted tolerance.
He tapped his fingers on a low table by his chair, then stood to his feet and walked toward the bedroom, coming to rest outside the door.
And, thatís all Iím going to tell tonight.
As long as the stones are in place, the monster wonít wake up.Ē
She shrugged and walked on. Dagan watched her go, then whispered under his breath, ďIf it was controlled once, it could be again.Ē
Specifically, I'm looking for help on semicolon and comma usage.
