FC: By: Kedriana Wilson 7th period | The Journal of Daisy Buchanan
1: Chapter 1 I am the wife of Tom Buchanan. I feel as if my husband may be keeping a secret from me. The day my cousin Nick arrived and I heard the name Gatsby, I begin to have a flashback of the day I met him. Hearing the name Gatsby, I seem to ascend to heaven. I begin to think about the good times I had with him. Oh how I still love him so much. The unexplained phone calls my husband is receiving must be from his secret love affair. In due time I will know the truth because this is not his first time having an affair.
2: Chapter 2 Today was a day of sorrow even though I have the wealth and luxury, but I do not have the love that I once had. Today, my husband went to New York to see another woman. I have a feeling that he did not go alone. If only I could have married Gatsby, my life would be different.
3: Chapter 3 I have only heard from my friend Jordan once since she met Nick. As I was getting ready to go to bed I received a phone call from Jordan. She was talking so fast I could not understand what she was saying, and when I was telling her to slow down the phone disconnected. The only thing I got out of the conversation is that she talked to Gatsby. Oh my gosh is this the Gatsby I know..
4: Chapter 4 Tom came home a little on edge as if something happened that he was not certain about. I talked to Jordan today and all she told me was that she was having tea with Nick and would have to talk to me later. After having the short conversation with Jordan, I started to have flashbacks of the time Jordan first saw Gatsby and me together. I am still trying to figure out what the letter said that I had in my hand the day before marrying Tom. I was so drunk I can not remember. Then I began to miss Gatsby. I also began to get upset because I thought about the affair Tom had with a woman at the Santa Barbara Hotel. I have a feeling that Jordan and Nick may be planning something.
6: Chapter 5 The next morning I receive a phone call from Nick inviting me to tea. He told me not to bring Tom. I did not want him to come anyway. When I arrived at Nick's house he told me to tell my chauffeur to go far away and spend an hour. Once I sat in the living room he gets a knock on the door. He gets up to answer the door and Gatsby walks into the living room. When I realized who he was I did not know what to do or how to feel. I was so happy to see him. I wondered why he was there..
8: Chapter 6 I am still in shock about seeing Gatsby and being in his home. I was invited to one of his parties to which Tom came along with me. I was so excited to be there. The dance Gatsby and I shared was so lovely. Afterwards we went to Nick's house and sat on his steps for about an hour just talking and catching up. I just couldn't understand what Gatsby was getting at. I just wonder will Gatsby and I have something more then just conversations with each other.
10: Chapter 7 I asked Gatsby to come over to lunch. When things got awkward I suggested that we should go to town. Tom wanted me to ride with him but I told him that I would ride with Gatsby in our car. We got a room at a hotel just to relax a little and that is when Gatsby told Tom I was leaving him. I agreed with Gatsby but then I begin to be confused and did not know what I really wanted to do. I was shocked that Tom told me to leave with Gatsby . I asked Gatsby could I drive, even though I was shaken up. As we got close to Wilson's garage a woman comes running into the street. I tried to miss her and then it came to me that this might be Tom's mistress and I kept going. Tom was very quite when he got home. He sat me down at the table and we began to talk about our future and what we were going to do with our lives.
12: Chapter 8 Jordan came over to visit today. She did not start asking me questions right away. Then she started asking me what happen and how it happen. Once I told her the story she said she had to go to town. After she left, Tom told me to pack some luggage for a romantic get away. I was so shocked that I begin to pack right away.
14: Chapter 9 It was not until a week later that I was told Gatsby had been shot by Wilson and died, and that Wilson was also dead too. Once I found out I did not know what to do or think but Tom was right by my side to comfort me for my lost. The he said,"Lets get away from all this for a little while but first I have to go to New York." I wonder why...
