“Please don’t.” Her voice was cold, but the rancor was gone from it. She looked at Gatsby. “There, Jay,”

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VII) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Daisy chooses Gatsby over Tom for the time being. But if this relationship were to continue it would be based on a lie that she was forced into. She is still unwilling to admit that she never loved Tom because she know it isn’t true— even if she married him for his money she knows she grew to love him after the marriage.

Then she addresses Gatsby in a cold and defiant voice, indicating she is not happy at all with what he just made her do.
