Hello, I have the following sentences in a story I'm rewriting. Her dad had hit and punched him and had only stopped when her ma came out and threw herself over her son. Then dad had opened the trunk and thrown Bobby's stuff out into the streets. My questions deals with the perfect tense. 1. Is it correct that 'had hit', the perfect 'had' also governs 'punched' - so that it's understood as 'had hit and had punched...'? 2. The verbs in 'her ma came out and threw herself' are not perfect, but simply past and correct? 3. Second sentence, if dad 'had opened', then it's understood in 'thrown' that he 'had thrown'? Any help would be appreciated.
