The last meeting between Nick and Jordan was for Nick to "clear the air" before going back west. He sat her down and told her that there relationship was over even though it never really begun. When Nick told her this she told Nick that she didn't care and that she was engaged and going to be getting married soon anyway.

Nick's last meeting was a little weird. Nick sat Jordan down and told her that their relationship was over. This is weird because they never really had a relationship. Jordan was actually engaged.

Nick Boutoures said...

I agree with Denis and Sean. Nick wanted to end the so called relationship that they had together. Even though there was no official relationship, Nick wanted to end whatever feelings were left. Nick was also heading out west and wanted to say goodybye too. He still has some feelings for her even though he does not want to show it.

Nick's last meeting with Jordan was simply for closure. they were never really together in a relationship but they did, i think, have some connection. Nicks goal in this last meeting was just to cut everything loose and say goodbye. Might have had feelings for each other but Nick decided it was best end whatever they did have and leave his past behind him.

This meeting between Nick and Jordan was the perfect act of closure for the book, since the story was coming to an end anyways. Nick telling Jordan that their relationship was over ends that chapter in his life and clears things up before he leaves for the midwest.

The purpose of the meeting between Nick and Jordan was to make sure everything between them was cleared out. He did not want to leave without making it clear that their relationship was over. When really, she was getting married so she felt the same way.

The last meeting between Nick and
Jordan was Nick trying to cut off everything that he had with Jordan. It was strange because Nick thought that there was something between them but it ended up with Jordan telling him that she was engaged to another man.

The last meeting i agree was strange. Nick said his and Jordan's "relationship" was over. she had not a care in the world she was engaged. I agree with Nick that Nick wanted to leave any feelings.

The purpose of nick and jordans last meeting was to say goodbye to eachother before Nick went back home. he did this because he did have some feeling for her, but wanted to end things.

Olivia Fuller said...

I agree with Dennis. Nick is the type of person that likes new beginnings.

Lisa Russell said...

Nick's last meeting with Jordan was important because they were going to say goodbye to eachother for the last time. They also got together so that they could finally end their relationship once and for all.

Nick met with Jordan because he wanted to work things out and as Denis said, "clear the air" before he moved out West. They talked about what happend with their relationship and Nick felt very sorry because he threw her over. Jordan was still upset about it but talked to Nick and told him that she was engaged. They worked things out and as Nick was leaving he said "tremendously sorry, and half in love with her, i turned away."
