English term or phrase:momentarily curious
What does "momentarily" mean in the passage below - "for a short time" or perhaps "immediately, at once"?
...for one moment he thought he would scream. He put one fist to his mouth, as if to cram it back... and then merely coughed into his fist. Neither Terry nor Dennis noticed, but Peter looked around, momentarily curious.
