Part 6: Ray

Ray wasn’t exactly his best friend, but they got along swell.

Ray was high most of the time, giving him an easygoing attitude that Gavin found to be a breath of fresh air. He was a cool guy to hang out with, he didn’t demand anything of him, and he was a good conversation partner, giving surprisingly thoughtful responses to Gavin’s questions. The fact that he was the only one in the crew willing to indulge Gavin’s ridiculous thought exercises was just a bonus. The only thing stopping them from becoming better friends was Ray’s general proximity to Ryan.

Ray was one of the first to notice that there was something Gavin wasn’t telling them. He didn’t come anywhere close to the truth, but he knew that Gavin had suffered a tragedy in his past that continued to haunt him. Gavin didn’t notice Ray had put it together until he brought it up in the middle of Mario Kart.

“Hey man, you know you can talk to us about whatever’s bothering you right? We won’t force you, but something’s clearly wrong, and we’re here for you if you decide to let us in on it.”

Gavin was so shocked he crashed his car, allowing Ray to pass him and win. The sniper simply got up off the couch, shot him a smile, and retreated to wherever he was when he wasn’t in the living room.

Gavin agonized over how much he knew for over a week, before he finally managed to convince himself that Ray probably didn’t suspect anything and his cover was still intact.

The first time Gavin got drunk/high with Ray, they decided to call each other X-Ray and Vav and started a war with the Corpirate’s gang. Geoff was furious, and banned them from drugs and alcohol. Gavin whined for show, but had no real problem following this rule. Ray, in contrast, was high again less than three hours later. Geoff either didn’t notice due to never having interacted with Ray when he was sober, or realized it was a lost cause. The war was over surprisingly quickly, only a month, but that was only because Gavin and Ray had gotten drunk again and blew up the safehouse the Corpirate was in, completely disregarding the crews much safer plan to do the same thing a week later.

Michael was caught between congratulations and disappointment in the fact that he wasn’t there for the explosions. Jack gave them a lecture about making stupid decisions. Vagabond didn’t appear to have an opinion. Geoff stared at them for a solid minute before declaring he was too sober for their bullshit and leaving the room.

X-Ray and Vav may not be as infamous as Nice Dynamite, but that doesn’t mean that they were any less terrifying to behold.
