Teaser Tuesday

Ok, my "teaser" is still coming from my current read "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, page 85.

"Then tragedy's emerald eyes glared suddenly at Amory over the edge of June. On the night after his ride to Lawrenceville a crowd sallied to New York in quest of adventure, and started back to Princeton about twelve o'clock in two machines."

So,  what do you think happened?  How was  Amory involved/affected? 

This book is not a long book, 282 pages actually.  It is taking me forever because there is so much description, so many words, you have to read slowly to not miss anything that might be meaningful.  There is no such thing as skimming this book, for sure.  The prose is beautiful, the descriptions grand but it is just taking a lot longer to read than I thought it would.  I am not quite halfway done.  I need to get busy because I really do want to know what comes of Amory.
