    Default later/after/aftewards

    Let's go there now.

    1-No, we will go there later.

    2-No, we will go there after.
    3-No, we will go there afterward.

    Which of the sentences 1-3 are acceptable in this context?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Only number 1 works, with "later" instead of "now". However, the most natural response would be "No, let's go there later".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
