# What does “へ?” mean

I've searched around and I've only found the usage of へ as being a particle meaning "in the direction of..." I'm not sure what it means as an interjectional question.

Context:

Girl: ねえ
三島さんが
具合悪いみたいなの
保健室連れていくね
Mishima: へ?
Girl: うんわかったー
先生にいっておくね


Since the particle へ deals with direction, would the question be something like "This way?" or "In this direction?"

• Just a note... the English translation you had doesn't match the Japanese at all. It would be something like: Girl 1 (to Girl 2 not Mishima-san): Mishima-san seems(みたい) not to be feeling well.(imagined full stop after なの) I'll take her to the nurse's office, OK? / Mishima (who is not sick): へ？ / Girl 2: Okay, I got it. I'll let the teacher know. – Hyperworm Dec 20 '13 at 14:35
• Oh, I get it now. Like you figured, I had thought she was talking to Mishima. Anyway, thanks for the help. I know I'm learning Japanese on hard stuff, but I'm still having fun. – Bizkit Dec 20 '13 at 16:23
