Grammar and story telling

“I held that meeting for them,” Sarah said, tilting her head towards Sally and Noah, “not for you.”

Does this show that Sarah was pointing at Sally and Noah cuz she held the meeting for them not for the person she was speaking to?  If not, how can I make this sent. mean that?

It's not totally clear. The first time I read it, I thought the 'you' was Sally and Noah. Try this:

 

Sarah tilted her head towards Sally and Noah and said, “I held that meeting for them, not for you.”

 

or

“I held that meeting for them,” Sarah said to Bill, tilting her head towards Sally and Noah, “not for you.”
