Prototyping: Go Back by X number of steps

The back interaction in figma is cool, but sometimes we need it to go back by more than 1 step.

Example of Issue:

screen A → screen A step 2 → modal C
screen B → screen B step 2 → modal C

Both flows arrive to the same modal C at the end. If the user closes the modal, I need to go back to either screen A or B, but I can’t set this manually in prototype because I don’t know which screen the user came from, it needs to be automatic. Being able to set ‘go back by 2 steps’ would solve this.
