"Wake up, son."

 

Ben awoke with a start. "Dad?"

 

"Yes, son. Your mother's here too."

 

And she was. Standing by his father's side, smiling and holding her husband's hand, was Caroline Fraser.

 

Ben rubbed his eyes. "I thought I'd never see you again. You said there was no reason to stick around."

 

His father shrugged. "There wasn't. Now there is."

 

"Dad?"

 

"You."

 

"Me?"

 

"Yes. You're broken the Mountie, code, son."

 

Ben looked at his parents. His mother still smiled gently, just as he always remembered her doing. "Dad?"

 

"You didn't get your man, son. Go get him."

 

Before Ben could answer, his parents faded away; went back to wherever they now existed.

 

He shook his head, "I must have been dreaming," he murmured.

 

He heard a whine.

 

"You saw them too, Dief?"

 

His answer was a sharp, decisive bark.

 

"If they were here, then "

 

"You should listen to us. We are your parents." The voice floated into the cabin.

 

Dief barked again. There was no mistaking the affirmative sound.

 

With a contented sigh and smile, Ben settled back onto the bed.

 

His parents were right. A Mountie should always get his man.

 

Tomorrow he'd pack up and head for Florida.
