People have arrived to Gatsby's party, but some of them were not even invited. Nick wonders to himself if he was the only one who was actually invited.
Look at all these books
These are real books...
Nick and Jordan sit in the couch and they can hear all the people gossiping about the party. All Nick hears are rumors about Gatsby.
Tomorrow I am going to go to hydroplaning. Do you want to go?
Thank you for the invitation
People from West Egg and New York do not care if they are invited or not they just show up because they hear that it will be big and have drinks.
I should have never came
Nick sees the owl-eyed man by the books, and his facial expression makes him look like he is really fascinated. The owl-eyed man later says, "these are real books" which he made a seem if it was weird to have real books.
Nick sees Gatsby at the party and Gatsby greets Nick while they talk Gatsby says he has a new hydroplane if he wanted to go with him to try it out.
As Nick he says he does not like the party because he did not want to become one of them, but throughout the party he was very fascinated with all of Gatsby because if all the rumors and of what he say like Gatsby does not drink or he is not with the people.
