    you put all your makeup on, sang a song of solomon

    Because it would be too easy. Because it wouldn’t be the right ending to this story. Because it would sting as much as it would be sweet. But above all things, because Daisy Buchanan is Daisy Buchanan, she doesn’t kiss him, not yet. Not until it’s fair.

    Summary

    Nick Carraway only longed for a simple life somewhere in between the bored-out-of-your-skull midwest, and the extravagant parties of his neighbor and friend whom he most certainly does not think is gorgeous. Jordan is cackling in the corner, 'congratulations,-' she says wiping an eye '-you almost convinced me'
    aka Nick's most common phrase is 'can i live?' while trying to deal with his lovesick party animal best friend

    Summary

    Jay Gatsby is very simply the man who had the wealth and fame that James Gatz craved. I prefer neither, for the genuine smile I craved inhabited both names for a time. I prefer neither, for both would have invited me to a party if only for politeness’ sake. I prefer neither, for you have never done me the insult of attempting to one piece of me over another no matter what I have told you or what I have done. Despite anything you may have done, you will forever be one of the few genuine people I know.

    Summary

    Gatsby smiled. It was the same warm smile he always used to wear, though a little tired. “Care to let me in, old sport?”

    Nick stepped aside and let him. If this was a ghost—which it well might be—it was still not a ghost he wished to expel from the house. Rather, it was a ghost which had already been haunting him for the past two months.

    Summary

    He remembered Myrtle, his lady, his wife, whom he had loved with all his heart, before she was cruelly stolen away. His heart beat faster, and a sort of giddy, insane joy possessed him. A chance to get back at the world for all the wrong it had done to him, at the low, low price of his sanity.
    One might call it the winner’s curse.

    Summary

    They share another round of laughter after which Daisy takes the bottle from Jordan and drinks. When she’s done, she rests the lip of the bottle against her mouth.

    “You could have an affair,” Jordan suggests. “Poetic justice, I’d say.”

    And involve some poor sap in all this business?” Daisy asks, a small smile playing on her lips. “As much as I’d like to see that, I’d hate to be responsible for someone’s murder.”

     

    Daisy and Jordan drink in the wake of discovering about Tom's latest affair.
