I began this piece of writing as a class assignment, but fell in love with the idea of becoming involved in Fitzgerald's complicated plot of The Great Gatsby, a story based in the debonaire 1930's.
If you have not read The Great Gatsby, this is all you need to know to understand my short story:
♦︎ In New York, there were two islands called the East Egg and West Egg. Although both were wealthy, the West Egg people had earned their money through work, while the East Egg consisted mostly of people who inherited their riches.
♦︎ Mr. Jay Gatsby is a man who built up his money. He has fallen in love with the beautiful, yet already married, Daisy Buchanan. Sadly, he was never a man to understand true character.
My character has fallen in love with Mr. Gatsby, but what she doesn't know is that love can be deadly.
I have tried to mimic Fitzgerald's superfluous style of writing to have the readers fully immerse themselves in the era of the 30's. Enjoy.
