    Summary

    At ten to four, Gatsby was with Nick in the little cottage; flowers for Daisy spilling from ornate vases on every table and shelf, her favorite tea brewed and ready, both men standing restless with their hands thrust deep into their pockets, shoulders taut.
    'She won't come—'
    'Give her some time, Jay—'
    '—and I'm not sure I want her to.'

Gatsby and Nick move to San Francisco, California to escape the commotion. Nick is the actual author of The Great Gatsby in this, so the story largely consists of Nick writing it.

    The water of the pool was still, with only ripples made by the soft gusts of wind. Towards one side, patches of red dotted the sides of the ceramic tiles and long the floor. Until they stopped; and a man lay there.

    Summary

    There was no bullet in the end, thank god. Yes, no one was shot but there were plenty of unseen wounds. Scars and fractures that ran deep beneath our persons, slowly chipping away at the last dredges of sanity we were desperately clinging to. And when it all came to a head, Jays ring slipped from his finger. Allowing a small clack of metal against marble to conclude the final act of whatever horrific dream-turned-awry I had been dragged into.

    Summary

    This is just a short story about a partygoer who had the chance to meet the great, Jay Gatsby. It was an encounter I had to create for a paper in English, in which my English teacher actually fell in love with my OC (she shipped my OC and Gatsby). This is just a cut down version of the whole story - hope you enjoy.
