She uses it to get what she wants which is why she tricks the reader sto think that she’s still in love with him when in reality it’s he’s money, like how she cried into Gatsby’s beautiful shirts (Fitzgerald 92). Also since Tom is always running off with another girl each night, Daisy may feel alone and in need for attention which is why she keeps sending mixed signals to Jay Gatsby in the novel. Since Daisy never admitted to Tom at the hotel about never loving him, this shows Daisy’s true colors, but Gatsby was already too deep to realize the mistakes he was making. So, that is why Daisy never attended Jay’s funeral because her true colors bursted, was afraid to ruin her reputation, and Gatsby gone means no more
Although Tea Cake offers Janie a new sense of "place," a role of partnership and mutual connection, and a new sense of "self," a more positive image of her own nature, his choices raise questions as far as his character is concerned.

Lastly evidence of foreshadowing is shown when Old Man Warner says “Lottery in June Corn be heavy soon”, this questions how the lottery is connected to crops.

Even beyond George and Myrtle’s relationship, Tom and Myrtle’s relationship is just a shallow. Myrtle is attracted to wealth, which is why she married George to begin with. Although she might feel some deeper level of attraction towards Tom, perhaps even love, he has no intent of loving Myrtle.
