I'm learning English (I'm French) and I was wondering which word to use.
I met friends yesterday night but one of them left a little before I arrived. I want to tell him that next time, it won't be like this and I will manage to catch him. In french I would have said it like this
"La prochaine fois, tu ne m'échapperas pas!"
(Literally, "The next time, you me not will-escape not", or "The next time, you will not escape me.".)
I found several translations for the verb "échapper" and I don't know which one would sound right. I thought about things like "Next time I won't let you flee like that!" or "You won't be able to escape from me next time!".
How would you say it?
