TVD Great Gatsby AU - Stefan Salvatore as Jay Gatsby, Caroline Forbes as Daisy Buchanan, and Klaus as Tom Buchanan
"Oh, you want too much!" she cried to Gatsby. "I love you now – isn’t that enough? I can’t help what’s past." She began to sob helplessly. "I did love him once – but I loved you too."
Gatsby’s eyes opened and closed.
"You loved me TOO?" he repeated.
"Even that’s a lie," said Tom savagely. "She didn’t know you were alive. Why – there’re things between Daisy and me that you’ll never know, things that neither of us can ever forget."
The words seemed to bite physically into Gatsby.
"I want to speak to Daisy alone," he insisted. "She’s all excited now –"
"Even alone I can’t say I never loved Tom," she admitted in a pitiful voice. "It wouldn’t be true."

"Ah," she cried, "you look so cool."
Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table.
"You always look so cool," she repeated.
She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded. His mouth opened a little, and he looked at Gatsby, and then back at Daisy as if he had just recognized her as some one he knew a long time ago.
