As of day 6, the new pointed growth on the right is the flower bud. The pointed growth in the center (atop what was originally the tallest part of the bulb’s trimmed-back leaves) are the tips of a couple of new leaves. Farther down on the left amidst the two horizontal bands of brown,  another flower tip is peeping through.

By Day 8 the two flower buds (one on either side) were clearly developed, as were the 2 leaves (in the center):
