The Fault in Our Stars Chapter 5 Summary
Augustus doesn't call for a week and Hazel tries not to wait around too pathetically by the phone.
On Sunday night, he finally calls and she goes outside to talk to him. They chat about
An Imperial Affliction
and how they both love it.
He also spills the beans: he's managed to somehow contact Peter Van Houten via email. What the what?!
Augustus gives Hazel the email address and she spends the next two hours crafting an email to Van Houten begging him to answer her questions about the book's end.
Then she stays up talking to Augustus on the phone about everything from books to kisses to Augustus's ex-girlfriend.
Turns out that Augustus' ex was named Caroline Mathers, and she died of cancer.
They decide that their couple "thing" will be saying "okay" to each other, kind of like how Isaac and Monica used to say "always" to each other.
Isaac gets his surgery and there's no evidence of cancer. But he's now blind, of course. Hazel goes to Memorial Hospital to check in on Isaac.
When she wakes up the next morning, Van Houten has finally responded to her email. Huzzah!
And crazy stuff: the email notes that if she ever finds herself in Amsterdam, he'd be happy to talk to her.
She tells her parents and says that she absolutely has to go, but then realizes that they don't have the funds for it.
Instead, she calls Augustus who suggests using her Wish from The Genie Foundation, the organization that grants sick kids one wish.
Unfortunately, Hazel already used hers on Disney World and Epcot when she was thirteen.
On Saturday, when Hazel is at a farmer's market with her parental units, Augustus calls and says that he's at her house and will see her when she gets home.
True to his word, he's waiting on the driveway with a bouquet of flowers, and he asks Hazel if she'd like to go on a picnic.
They go to a park behind the museum and eat a bunch of orange foods. Augustus says that orange is the national color of the Netherlands.
He finally breaks the big news to her: he hasn't used up his Wish yet and is going to use it in order to take them both to Amsterdam!
