However, since my return I had only passed this way after dark.
He and his men would have passed this way long ago.
But when, after tonight, was he likely to pass this way again?
He'd have to pass this way again to get out.
Somebody who had passed this way not much earlier than last night.
They were not the first men to have passed this way.
No one had passed this way in a very long time.
Such a person as this will never pass your way again.
The energy source will pass this way in 1.9 minutes.
I will not pass this way again to see if it did him any good.
