    not again

    Are these both correct and do they mean the same:

    1-I didn't see him when he was in the house. I saw him when he came out and started walking towards the shed. I did not see him again when he went behind the shed.

    2-I didn't see him when he was in the house. I saw him when he came out and started walking towards the shed. Once again, I did not see him when he went behind the shed.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: not again

    Once again could mean that the person is repeating their statement. It makes things less clear to me. To be honest, I would remove again from the first.

    Re: not again

    I'd say 'I lost sight of him again when he went behind the shed'.
