In Chapter 8 of “The Great Gatsby”, Nick visits Gatsby at his house.  While sitting at Gatsby’s pool, Nick tells Gatsby that he should forget about Daisy for a while and leave Long Island because of the events that had take place in the previous chapter.  Previously, Gatsby has a huge falling out with Tom, Tom reveals some secret information about Gatsby to Daisy, and Daisy proceeds to kill Myrtle by hitting her with the car and Gatsby says that he will take the blame for it.  Nick thinks that at this point, it would be a good idea for Gatsby to lay low and disappear for a while.
