In Italian, some progressive tenses are translated with the form "stare" plus gerund:stefano2 wrote:"I was just walking away"
I am working = Sto lavorando
I was woking = Stavo lavorando
Your sentence refers to the past; "walking away" means "andarsene [via]". The adverb "just" can be translated into either "proprio" or "giusto":
"Me ne stavo giusto andando [via]"
"Stavo proprio per andarmene [via]"
"Me ne stavo per andare [via]" (I was going to walk away).
