    Summary

    As the day went on, Gatsby’s softer remarks, expressions and his touches became more frequent. At this same flow of time, I started seeing him in a different light and realized that I had become (un)regretfully smitten with Jay Gatsby.

    I could be hanged for this.

    OR

    Nick forgets all about his rent and is told he has to either pay up or beat it and he mentions it to Jay in passing who offers to have Nick move in in the room near his in a completely not "You're my best friend and I think I may be gay for you but I can't express it so please take my offer" way.

    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

    ‘I suppose Daisy’ll call too’ Gatsby said after a few moments.

    That ever-present air of hope still shone through in his voice, and it was then that a sudden and rather chilling realisation came to mind. Hope was all that Gatsby had left.

    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.'

    Summary

    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.
