    Normally I don't help with questions in English...probably because I need to focus on Mathematics. Hmmmmmmm.... we have to use all past tense though, so your setting better be in the past.

    well... we still need to respect history as back then people bartered and there weren't any stores. And since the story has to be in past tense, we can't use this week or next week.

    what about method of transportation? And how old is Darius anyway? Darius could be an adult... maybe he drives or catch the bus? His class could be for community college Or.. Darius could be a teenager in high school and either he caught the bus or his parents drove him.

    Since the means of transportation is not explicitly known, you need to transition the sentence without expressing the means by which he had arrived at the store.

    Therefore, disregard the means, and hence say "arrived to the store" "arrived at the store" "he had moved from point A to point B" kind of way

    but anyway if you can't diverge away from the information, what's the point in this then? "You may need to create additional details or information. Use proper spelling and grammar. " It was listed after the instructions.

    I think that temporal transition is valid only when one uses transition verbs/words to make the paragraph flow better. That doesn't allow you to make up things that would blemish the original points being conveyed.
