The first thing that hits Lamont when he enters Luce's hovel he calls an office is the stench. Not the usual smell of booze and vomit and cigarettes, but the heavy tangy smell of copper mixed in with all of the aformentioned smells. Lamont sighs. He sets the box of groceries he always buy Luce at the end of the week and pushes open the bathroom door. The wall of smoke that billows out of the tiny room is stunning. No, really, it is. It's like running into a brick wall. If bricks were made out of tobacco smoke.
When the smoke clears, Lamont almost leaves. Really. He does. Luce is sprawled in the pinky gray water of the tub. A scalpel is on the scummy tiles next to the tub, bloody and abandoned. A lit cigarette perches inbetween Luce's fingers, the amount of ash steadily getting bigger before dropping off into the water. Tiny rivlets of blood drip down Luce's already heavily scarred arms.
The water is rippling, as Luce's arm goes up and down over and over again under the water. Luce hasn't noticed Lamont and Lamont doesn't say anything, doesn't interrupt. He notices how many cigarette butts are floating in the tub and wonders how long Luce has been here, floating in the skunky water. Luce tenses in the tub, hisses, bites his lip hard enough to make it bleed and then relaxes, letting his head loll back on the edge of the tub. One of the new cuts and gushing again and Lamont moves into action. He rolls up his shirtsleeves, plunging his arms down into the blood and ash and spunk and Godknowswhatelse and drags Luce out of the tub(Jesus, he weighs nothing, nothing at all), setting him down on the bath mat. He turns to dran the tub and when he turns back, he sees Luce's spider like hand inching for the scalpel. He snatches it away.
"That's /enough/, Luce," He says firmly, beginning to towel the man off. The towel is like paper and really isn't doing much. He pulls Luce up, who stumbles foward. Lamont growls something about Luce being an asshole and picks him up again, carrying Luce to the examination room. He drops the man unceremoniously onto the table (really, he deserves it, Lamont had dipped his arms in the man's grimy bathwater for chrissakes) and begins bandaging the thin, scarred arms.
" 'ass me th' cigs," Luce manages to mumble, his voice sounding like it had been passed over ashphalt.
"Nope," Lamont says, wrapping the bandages a little tighter than necessary. "No cigarettes until you aren't passing out because of blood loss." He finishes the wrappings. "I'm going to get you some juice. Stay. Here." Luce just grins like an ass and jestures loosely to his nudity as if to say 'not going anywhere'. Lamont just turns.
When he returns with the juice and some biscuts, Luce is puffing away. Honestly, Lamont shouldn't be surprised anymore. The man smokes like fish swim. He sets down the biscuts and juice. "Drink." Lamont says firmly, before turning to grab Luce clean(ish) clothes from the closet. Luce just nods languidly and makes a big show of gulping down some juice.
Lamont notices how Luce's fingers seem to bungle with the juice glass, how his arms shake with the effort of raising them. Lamont just shakes his head, pulling out fresh briefs and a shirt. Turning back to Luce, he manages to catch the man in the act of stubbing his cigarette out on his thigh.  Lamont springs over, smacking the cigarette out of Luce's hand, but the deed is done. Lamont curses, hurling the wad of clothing down, stomping to the medicine cabinet and slamming things with more force than necessary. He sets to work, smearing burn cream and taping gauze, silently fuming with the steadily boiling anger for Luce. He can almost feel Luce's smirk, and ignores it.
"Wassa madder, 'mont?" Luce slurrs, lighting another cigarette and exhaling a long ribbon of smoke.
Lamont steps back and hurls the burn cream across the room. "Goddamnit, Luce!" He kicks Luce's stool and stomps to the door. He rests his hand on the door knob, breathing deeply. "Your groceries are in the front office." He moves to open the door. Luce small voice stops him.
"He asn't been tah see me in over a week," Luce says quietly. Lamont pauses, not particularly sure who the man is talking about. Luce thin shoulders are shaking, with fatigue or whatever, Lamont isn't sure if he wants to know. He walks back to Luce, sits beside him on the examination table. Puts an arms around his shoulder. "That feckin' fag," Luce shudders.
And honsetly, Lamont isn't sure if he is surprised or not.

So are you sick of me commenting yet? Seriously though, great job. All the little details you give about Worth's living space are great, but what really draws me is how Lamont reacts to all of Worth's masochistic behaviors.
...and Luce?
