"Where-" I frown, stepping forward slightly before conceding and just settling onto my knees to look at him. "With who?"

"At a bar," I respond vaguely, my gaze avoiding hers despite my lack of sight. "With - everyone?"

"Fuck, Marnin, what where you thinking?" I scoot towards him to get a better look at his face when the state of his knuckles catches my attention. They're battered and bloodied, and I wouldn't be remotely surprised if there weren't half a dozen broken or fractured bones underneath that bruised flesh. I inhale sharply as I reach forward towards one of his hands, my fingers brushing lightly against his before I close some of the distance between us to take his hand into mine. 

"Marn, these need medical attention," I frown as I gingerly trace the swollen skin, "I'm taking you to a doctor."

"No," I say sharply, my posture stiffening as I pull my hand away. "No doctors," I say more gently, my posture softening just slightly as I offer my hand back to her, more as a show of good faith than anything. "Doctors are unattractively fond of police."

"Your hands are broken," I frown sharply, taking his hand into both of mine as I look up at him, "You can't just ignore them."

"They'll heal," I say seriously, offering her the ice pack for my hand. "They always do... if it makes you feel better, I can show you how to wrap them and you can help me with that?"

"No," I respond roughly, "That doesn't-" 

Sighing heavily, I take the pack and settle onto the ground in front of him. "What do you have to worry about a bar fight for?"

"My worst injuries are self-inflicted, Lju," I point out quietly, any further description of the fight hanging in the air for her to work out on her own. "Needless to say, I think they might be looking for me at the hospitals."

"Fuck, Marnin," I sigh, tucking the ice pack against his hands before shifting to stand back up. 

"I don't have all the fancy shit you do, but I'm making something for those wounds." I say firmly, eager to fall back into our roles from a week prior than linger on yesterday's anxieties any further.

"Is it topical?" I ask quickly, the idea of anything else turning my stomach.

"It's a spread, yeah," I nod as I head towards the meager kitchen set up, opening the lone cupboard of herbs as I begin digging through them. 

"Help with swelling, keep out infection, and probably sting a bit til it goes numb." I list off the effects, glancing towards him, "Unless you want something else..?"

"No," I say quickly, shaking my head as I flex my injured hands. "I like the pain. And I'm clean. Let's keep it that way."

"No withdrawal symptoms..?" I ask hesitantly, looking back at him. Sweats, shakes, glassy eyes, who'd know with the look of him. 

"Is that why you did it? Got sick of hitting the bag?"

I don't offer a response as I move the ice pack from spot to spot, fidgeting restlessly. I don't know what to say about dropping one drug habit only to fall off another kind of wagon. And I'm so jittery right now, I couldn't say one way or the other if it's the lingering drugs in my system or the adrenaline of the fighting.

So instead I say nothing at all, my gaze fixing on a spot on the floor instead as I wait for her to return with the salve.

The silence is far from a comfortable one as I work in the kitchen, his pointed decision not to answer my question only leaving me feeling at edge as I finish up the salve. Once it's done, I come back to sit on my knees in front of him, removing the ice pack so I can set to work gently spreading it across his knuckles. 

"It needs to be worked into the upper hand," I say softly, my thumbs brushing over the swollen flesh of the back of his hand to let him know what I mean, "Would you like to do it yourself or have me..? It's going to hurt."

"You can do it," I say quietly, already wincing at the gentle touch. There's something grounding about this kind of pain, though, and I find myself relaxing into it as I sigh at the attention. "You really don't have to do this, you know."

"No one told me I did." I shrug as I try to keep my touch as soft as I can as I work the salve into the worn skin.

I wince a bit under her touch, my muscles tensing as I try not to pull my hand from her. Instead, I lean forward a bit, my forehead coming to rest against hers as I close my eyes and sigh contently.

I tense under the extra weight as I move from one hand to the other, working carefully but quickly before reaching up to catch his jaw with the clean backs of my own hands. 

"I can put some on your face, if you like?" I offer, pouting at the state of it. "You don't even look like you."

I nod my consent, unconsciously nuzzling into her touch as she begins working on my bruised cheeks.

"You'll be the swamp thing before I'm through with you," I tease lightly - anything to kill the silence - as I work the bruised and bloodied silhouette of his cheekbone. 

"And I should probably tell you, there's no proper shower here. So if you require more than the sink, you'll need my key to get into the communal down the hall."

"I'm okay," I respond tiredly, offering a small smile at her teasing. "I cleaned up at home before coming over. Now I'm just kind of tired."

"Are you thirsty..?" I ask as I cup his cheek in my hand tenderly before stepping away from him to wash the salve from my own skin, "I can make you some tea. Proper tea, not my stuff... It's been brought to my attention I might be too familiar with my own supply."

"Oh?" I make a face at that before nodding as she glances back at me. "Tea would be lovely, thank you."

"I don't have all the herbs like at your house, so is black fine?" I ask as I pull down the tin of tea and shake it before turning to set up the kettle.
