    Come back

    Hi guys,

    Can I say "She told me that she would tell me after she had come back or when she came back". She has already returned from the place where she went. If she is still there I can say "She would tell me when she comes or after she has returned". Am I correct?

    Re: Come back

    1. You can say either of the first. But if she's already back, she should have told you.
    2. No, "She will tell me after she has returned."
