    Smile after a second or two

    I can't understand the meaning of this phrase"after a second or two".
    "After a second or two,she looked back at Nick again.
    Could you explain the meaning of this phrase to me?

    After a second or two (seconds) = After a while - seconds is elided (that is omitted) here.

    Re: after a second or two

    "After a second or two" is used as a synonym to "after a moment" or "after a short period of time."
