Bully about to get a little time inside after that (8)
I believe the answer is:
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).
'reat' placed into 'then' is 'THREATEN'.
'about' is the link.
