Like many of the people in the clinic, Lilly is a profoundly
damaged human being. She is tiny and fragile-looking and wears oversized black
clothing. Unlike James, Lilly did not come from a loving, stable
family. Her mother sold her into prostitution when she was a child,
trading her virginity for a syringe full of heroin. At the time the
story takes place, she is living with her grandmother, a kind woman
who eventually saves enough money to send Lilly to the clinic. Though
she has been corrupted from the time she was a child, Lilly remains
a pure figure in James’s eyes. The clinic forbids relationships
between male and female patients, but Lilly and James disregard
this rule and regularly meet in a clearing in the woods. When Lilly
is in danger of a relapse, James puts his recovery and life on the line
to save her. Lilly’s love replaces addiction as the most important force
in James’s life. She inspires him to get better and gives him something
to live for.
