In "Conviction: The untold story of putting Jodi Arias behind bars" by Juan Martinez, he writes the following lines
"This third gas can, you actually bought it in Salinas, didn't you?" "Yes," Arias answered. And for that one instance, I saw a a cornered look in her eyes.
What does this phrase mean?
Out of the corner of one's eye means to look at something indirectly. But the phrase above doesn't seem to be meaning that someone is looking at something in a certain way. It seems to carry a type of emotion with it right? I am curious to know what the facial expression looks like when someone is engaging in the above behavior.
