She walked out a little from the station, and presently she met “King” Plummer coming back.

Barret had about half filled his botanical box with what he believed to be an interesting collection of plants that would cause the eyes of Milly Moss to sparkle, when the position of the sun and internal sensations induced him to think of his midday meal. It was tied up in a little square paper package. There was a spring at the bottom of the cliffs.Robert Michael Ballantyne – The Eagle Cliff
We were still in the temperate parallels, the weather of a true Pacific sweetness, and, by day, the ocean a dark blue rolling breast of water, feathering on every round of swell in sea-flashes, out of which would sparkle the flying-fish to sail down the bright mild wind for a space, then vanish in some brow of brine with the flight of a silver arrow.William Clark Russell – The Honour of the Flag

Wow! you’re waxing lyrical this evening, Manu! A nice bit of writing indeed. My only comment would be that normally “sparkling” would be used in a positive context, but I guess you can count on poetic license in this case!
However, it should be, “…growling at me.”
You are too good to me
Well, it’s good to see you using your English in an inventive way! 🙂

…as he poured her another glass of bubbling champagne.
