I'd use "fa" instead "hu" (it is for accompaniment). As we don't have word for "forward/onward", I'd use "place before/in front of me":
Pesengne oe kerä? Ne tseng a eo oe, txo syayvi oeru

No. <ay> infix is future tense, but can be put only into verbs. Krr is noun... If you need "future" word, it is zusawkrr (time which is coming)

No, he didn't. Jake says "Forward" in English.
