He looks up at the call of his name,shielding his eyes from the falling snow. The first thing he sees through the blinding white is red; Ray starts to smile. The mere sound of Benny's voice already makes the thousand miles plus he's journeyed worth it.
"RAY!" Benny calls again, and Ray grins.
"I'm glad to see you too, Fraser," he returns but whirls around when he hears the sound of a wolf growling, snarling, and biting. A man screams. A gun fires, and Ray suddenly tastes the copper of his own blood in his mouth. Pain riddles his body, but as he falls down in confusion and pain, he's still grinning.
He's not sure what's happening other than the fact that he's been shot by whoever Diefenbaker tried to take down, but he knows what will happen. He'll wake to the sight of the handsome man who's his best friend and so very much more. After all this time and all these miles, they still haven't put a name to their relationship, but Ray knows he'll save him. He'll always save him, and he'll always be worth any amount of trouble and pain. He slips into unconsciousness, still smiling.
