It was well past the twilight hour now. Himiko would not be coming to Kaon's bed tonight if she hadn't done so already.
What exactly is the tense here? The would not be coming phrase is future looking or at least the situation of the moment while the hadn't part is looking into the past. I think that some form of the subjunctive mood is implied here. Please pick one form and apply it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjunctive_mood
