example:Her gaze direction clearly showed her intentions. As she confronted him, her eyes were piercing through him as if she was a lioness going in for the kill. She glared at him intensely, as her eyes widened. Her eyes were so wide that you could see her pupils enlarging. She leaned her head slighting towards him and her eyes darted outward. The emotion in her eyes showed she was brimming with revenge. Her muscles around her eyes hardened, and you could see the disproval within. She continued to maintain this intense hostile stare, until he began to respond. As he began to speak, her eyes narrowed. Her eyelids covered her eyes, almost in a defensive and dissatisfied way. Her eyes appeared much smaller, and you could barely see the white in her eyes. Her eyes than began to open and blink rapidly in a very sarcastic way. They appeared to be blinking with surprise and disapproval. As she proceeded to interrupt him, the muscles around her eyes hardened once again. Her eyes appeared very rocklike, almost as if she could have turned him to stone. She maintained this very bold gaze at him, which portrayed the power she held in this situation. The animosity she was feeling successfully illuminated from her stormy eyes.
