    Hi YakKappa! :)

    The word « sharp » can have different meanings. You can consult the Cambridge dictionary to know all of the meanings :

    In this particular sentence, the word sharp means something « happening suddenly, quickly, and strongly».

    I hope that helps and let us know if you have any other questions! :)
