In the closing paragraph, the narrator reveals his “true love” that was hidden inside him, “ I began to weep, and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’ I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (604).

When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92).

While Tom does claim that “[o]nce in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time,” Daisy snapily replies “you 're revolting.” Even at the beginning of the book, Daisy refers to Tom as “a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen.” She married him because of his status and the “pomp and circumstance” he brought. Tom also has a significant relationship with another woman, Myrtle. This illicit relationship is quickly shown to be shallow as after Myrtle brought up Daisy, “making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” He also only thinks of himself after Myrtle is fatally killed, trying to figure out the best way to protect himself, and particularly distraught about her death.
I am not afraid of you or your lack of a future job... I am disgusted by you. I am amazed by your ignorance, lack of direction, lack of common sense and you are the reason that humanity has its flaws. I don’t accept you, and your worlds of closed-minded thinking and being “the best”. You are not "cool."
