Hey Noel, 

 

Overall this is pretty good, but you do have a couple errors.

 

“Your mind is weak. You have the powers, which could have protect you from that creature, and move those thorns.” 

 

(1) "could have protectED" verbs that are paired with have always use the past participle, which is usually a -ED ending. ( have + past participle)

 

(2) Also, I think you want 'move' to go with have.  That is you mean to say "have protected and moved".  In this case, you should leave 'move' where it is and add an -ED.

 

The final sentence might read as follows:

 

“Your mind is weak. You have the powers, which could have protected you from that creature, and moved those thorns.”

 

I hope this helps, 

 

Kim
