Wilson walked steadily towards the pool, like a lion preying on deer, each step bringing him closer to his crazed goal.
His mind was on the verge to insanity, constantly seeing the yellow car destroy his wife’s body.”The bastard didn’t even stop the car”, this phrase played on his mind on an endless loop to remind him of the heartlessness of Gatsby and to justify what he was about to do.
