& The Couple is Moving!

After residing in Chicago for the years that Daisy and Tom were together and spending a year in France for no reason, they finally decide to move to the wealthy part of town, East Egg. According to Daisy "this was a permanent move", in which people could not believe. And so it happened that on a warm windy evening, Nick drove over to East Egg to see this couple. As Nick explained, their house was even more detailed than he expected. Their house was decorated as a cheerful red-and-white Georgian Colonial mansion which overlooked the bay. The lawn had started at the beach and ran toward the front door for a quarter of a mile. The beauty of this house was only becoming more of a luxury for Daisy and Tom.


In the month of June and the year of 1918, Daisy Fay married Tom Buchanan of Chicago, with more pomp and circumstance than Louisville ever knew before. Daisy, an elegant and modest woman comes from a family that resides in Louisville. Tom came around with a large amount of people in four cars and had hired a whole floor of the Seelbach Hotel. The day before the wedding, Daisy received pearls from Tom that were worth $350,000. Jordan Baker was one of Daisy's close friends whom was the bridesmaid of their wedding. After witnessing Daisy in a room, she walked in and comforted her after consuming quite a bit of alcohol. She had a crying spell due to a letter that she read. After figuring it all out and feeling better, the next day at five o'clock, she married Tom Buchanan and started off on a three month's trip to the South Seas.

Jordan Baker talks about seeing them in Santa Barbara. After discussing with her we asked how it had went. "I thought I'd never seen a girl so mad about her husband." Daisy was the wife to ask where Tom had went twenty-four seven. Jordan stated that she used to see Daisy act intimate towards Tom.

A week later after being married, Tom had gotten into a wreck with a woman from the Santa Barbara Hotel. Daisy knew that she did not know what to think just because she knew she should have let her conscious guide her. The April after this had happened, she gave birth to a little girl. The Buchanan's took off to France for a year and spent a wonderful time there. Daisy was not very fond of drinking and was not big on parties, however, after hearing one of the most famous party hoster’s name, she faintly remembered it; Gatsby. She knew he was the man she used to know. After remembering such a kind soul, she realized why she chose Tom over Gatsby. Gatsby was the one that left her and took off, and as we know Tom was the next best thing.
