I saw them in Santa Barbara when they came back, and I thought I’d never seen a girl so mad about her husband. If he left the room for a minute she’d look around uneasily, and say: ‘Where’s Tom gone?’ and wear the most abstracted expression until she saw him coming in the door. She used to sit on the sand with his head in her lap by the hour, rubbing her fingers over his eyes and looking at him with unfathomable delight. It was touching to see them together – it made you laugh in a hushed, fascinated way. That was in August. A week after I left Santa Barbara Tom ran into a wagon on the Ventura road one night, and ripped a front wheel off his car. The girl who was with him got into the papers, too, because her arm was broken – she was one of the chambermaids in the Santa Barbara Hotel.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby. Chapter 4, Jordan Baker on the story of the aftermath of Daisy’s marriage. Post-honeymoon Daisy seems to be genuinely head-over-heels for Tom Buchanan. But the first half of this passage also hints that Daisy knows about Tom’s pattern of infidelity, which is confirmed in the second half. The chambermaid he seems to have had a fling with, like most of Tom’s women, also gets injured and suffers a broken arm.
