Daisy, Tom, Gatsby and the rest went home from the hotel after the fight. Everyone returned to their homes except for Gatsby, who didn't return to his home because of his concern for Daisy. He stayed outside watching Daisy from her window in case something were to happen. I walked over and saw Gatsby watching the Buchanan's from outside of their house and continued to ask him if he was going home.
"No," Gatsby responded. "I am worried about Daisy. I just can't seem to leave her, old sport."
I understood him, and returned home. I knew he would be content sitting outside, and wouldn't do anything radical.
Not long thereafter, Daisy saw Gatsby through the window. She deliberately walked right past him and closed the windows and the curtains. Gatsby didn’t know how to react and was heartbroken. He desperately fought his emotions. He knew inside that he must stay strong. He sat starring at the closed window for about an hour or so. He then slowly rowed back across the bay.
After what would seem like the moment after Gatsby left, Tom started to become furious about what happened at the hotel, feeling that he was betrayed by Daisy. Tom downed a 1/5 of vodka and then lost control. Daisy had obviously became afraid of Tom’s rampage and tried to flee him. Tom started to yell at Daisy about what she did and how she chose Gatsby over him. Tom became aggressive and started abusing Daisy. Out of fury or sheer panic, Daisy blurted out what had really happened to Myrtle and told Tom that it was her that drove over Myrtle not Gatsby.
