    noticed the way

    spring
    • figurative
    I noticed the way you sprang to his defence when Caroline started joking about his clothes.
    Cambridge dictionary

    Does "the way" here point to the manner in which s/he sprang,
    or the very fact of springing (= I noticed that you sprang ...)?
    Thank you
