I want to express that my character was walking away after her friend teased her a bit but she's trying to be serious. I don't want it to come off as she's angry, but just annoyed.

So I don't know if "stormed" or "stomped" would be a good match?

  • Yes they’re ;in addition to stump, pace and careen. – Bavyan Yaldo Jan 3 '18 at 0:59

    "stormed" or "stomped" would be considered angry responses. Maybe "she walked off" or "she walked away". – user3169 Jan 3 '18 at 1:00
  • If you use stormed or stomped, it should be stormed off, or stomped off, or stomped away. – Jelila Feb 16 '18 at 17:56

Strutted off. It means to go away walking with attitude, stiffly.


Went off in a huff. To 'go off in a fit of petty annoyance'.

Maybe "left abruptly" would work. Doesn't really say she's angry...just that she "had enough".
