Here is my best explanation:

'bully' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'to get a little time inside after that' is the wordplay.
'to get' becomes 'rea' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'a little time' becomes 't' (abbreviation for time).
'inside' indicates putting letters inside.
'after that' becomes 'then' (synonyms).
'rea'+'t'='reat'
'reat' placed into 'then' is 'THREATEN'.

'about' is the link.
