    Summary

    Some little scene sketches from early in Marty and Rust's partnership, and parts of the 1995 investigation. Not in chronological order.

     

    In Louisiana Rust creates his own structure. His work is necessary and not overtly cruel to the larger human organism of which he is a part. He is entitled to the things that allow him to do the work: mattress, cigarettes, books, shoes.

    He is not entitled to Marty but has ended up with him anyway. This will backfire.

    Summary

    “You need me to fuck that mood outa you?”

    Rust’s fingers tighten a little around his pen, but he doesn’t look up. “Sex is a chemical prank the body plays on the mind,” he says, and ashes his cigarette.

    “Yeah, fine,” Marty says, “but do you want some.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He tossed the crutch onto the floor and hobbled back into the bedroom, aware he was trailing bits of blood and broken glass. He hauled himself up onto the bed, and folded his hands serenely. There came a point when you had fucked up so bad, it brought a kind of peace with it, because you knew you couldn't fuck up any worse, and you thought, well, here I am.
