Spoiler alert! Expect the tricky side of Danny and a hot Steve and Kono scene. Hmmmm… wonder what will happen… find out!
The next morning
Danny sat at his desk with a grin on his face. He was about to execute one of his most brilliant plans and he had a very good feeling that it was going to work perfectly. He spotted Kono coming out of her office and immediately called for her.
Kono swirled around and walked over to Danny.
"Hey brah, what's up?" she asked.
"Hey, would you mind getting me a pack of post-its from the supply closet please?" Danny said.
"Oh c'mon brah, I was just going out for lunch!" Kono complained gesturing towards the door.
"Please? What about this, you'll do this for me and I'll buy four shaved ice cones!" Danny tried to persuade her, especially because Steve was going to walk through those doors any minute now.
Kono thought for a moment before answering.
Danny groaned and then nodded.
"Ok, now hurry up!" Danny demanded.
Kono turned around and headed towards the supply closet just as Steve walked through the doors.
"Hey, Steve!" Danny called.
Steve stopped and turned to Danny.
"What Danny?" Steve asked.
"Could you please do me a quick favor and grab me some post-its from the supply closet?" Danny asked while trying to maintain a straight face.
"Danny, c'mon man…" Steve started but trailed off.
"Please! If you do this for me I'll do you paperwork for a week I swear!"
Steve thought about it for a few seconds.
"Two weeks." He stated.
Damb stubborn love birds, this is costing me too much! Danny thought.
"Fine! Now please hurry." Danny asked.
He watched as Steve turned on his heels and then a few seconds earlier Danny got up and very quietly followed him.
Steve got to the walk-in supply closet and was surprised to find Kono rummaging through the top shelf.
"Hey, what are you doing here?" Steve asked.
Kono immediately stiffen as she heard his voice but shrugged it off.
"Just grabbing some post-its for Danny, you?" she asked as she turned around to face him. She was met by one very confused Steve Mcgarrett.
"Wait, you're here for Danny?" Steve asked.
"Yeah… why?" she asked suspiciously.
At that moment they both heard the closet door close and being locked from the outside. They both shared a look and then ran to the door.
"Danny, get us out of here!" Steve demanded.
"How do you know it was Danny?" Kono faced him.
"He asked me to come get some post-its for him too." Steve explained.
And then realization downed over Kono. OH MY GOD!
She started pounding on the door.
"Danny, I swear if you are doing this for that I will kick your ass when I get out of here!" Kono shouted.
Steve turned towards her.
"Doing this for what?" he asked puzzled.
Crap! She thought.
"Nothing. Forget it." she rushed to answer.
Steve pinned her with a look and was about to say something when a piece of paper passed through the crack below the door.
Steve reached for it first and his eyebrows shot up when he read it. He turned it so he could show it to her.
Tell him! Now!
"Well, I guess Danny wants you to tell me." Steve stated ironically.
Kono didn't answer, just turned towards the door again and shouted.
"DANNY YOU ARE A DEAD MAN!"
Steve laughed at that and went to sit under the lowest shelf which was still about 5 feet from the ground.
"What are you doing?" Kono asked perplexed.
"Well, obviously Danny is not going to free us unless you tell me… whatever it is that he wants you to tell me… and you don't seem all that convicted about telling me, so I guess this will take a while, there for sitting." Steve said with a mocking grin.
"Can't you just kick down the door or something?"
"And have to face the governor for destroying her property? I don't think so." He said ironically.
"So you hang a guy off a roof but you won't kick down a door?" Kono asked with a disbelieving tone.
"Yeah, pretty much." Steve said with a grin.
"Smart ass." Kono muttered.
Steve looked at her searching for her yes, but she wouldn't meet his. Eventually she slid down the door and sat on the ground.
"C'mon Kono, just tell me, what's been going on with you?" Steve pleaded.
"Nothing!" Kono exclaimed. "Everybody please just back down!"
"Oh nothing, is it?" Steve asked. "Because for the past week you've been avoiding me, not looking me in the eyes and not even exchanging more than three words a day with me! What the hell happened? Did I do something to you?" Steve asked, exasperated.
Oh, you did a lot of things! Kono thought. She immediately felt the blush creep up her cheeks as she thought about that night once again.
"Uh, Kono, you wanna tell me why you're blushing?" Steve asked bemused.
"Arggg! Nothing happened! You didn't do anything just leave me the hell alone!" Kono shouted getting up.
Steve looked at her perplexed. Throughout all this past year he had never seen her like this. If he was honest with himself, he was kind of turned on about it, but what didn't turn him on about her?
He was standing up now too and heading towards her.
"Hey, hey, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to upset you Kono." He apologized.
Kono took a deep breath and pulled herself back together.
"It's ok, it's ok, and I know you didn't mean it." Kono reassured him. She still wasn't meeting his eyes.
Steve smiled at her, but then he noticed something else.
"Hey, what are those marks on your neck?"
Kono turned crimson red at this and quickly pulled away from him.
"Nothing, nothing, just burned myself with the curling iron." Kono came up with the excuse.
"Those don't look like curling iron marks." Steve protested.
"Well, they are." Kono replied.
"Ok then, I'm done." Steve said as he pulled out his phone.
"What… what are you doing?" Kono asked as a wave of fear ran through her.
"You don't tell me what's been going on with you and you won't be honest with me, and Danny seems to have already figured it out so I'll just give him a call and see what he has to say." Steve said matter of fact as he dialed Danny.
"No, no, no, don't!" Kono shouted as she reached for his phone.
"Either you tell me or I call Danny! What's it going to be?" Steve asked, annoyed.
The room fell silence.
"Ok then." Was all Steve said. He brought the phone up to his ear.
"Danny." Steve started.
"Oh, for the love of God, you and I had sex!" Kono shouted angrily.
Steve paralyzed, phone still close to his ear and Danny still on the line. He could hear Danny's voice now.
"So she finally told you uh?"
"Danny I have to go." Steve said as he hung up the phone and put it back on his pocket.
Steve stared directly into Kono's eyes.
"What are you talking about?"
Kono took a deep breath. She was going to KILL Danny!
"Remember the team's night out a few days ago?" Kono started.
"Vaguely." Steve responded.
"I went to your house afterwards to check up on you, and from what I remember you offered me another beer and…"
"And I pushed you up against the wall and kissed you…" Steve completed.
"You remember?" Kono asked, confused.
"Just came to me." Steve said. He huffed lightly. "So the marks on your neck and your limping the next morning…"
"And my sore muscles the…"
"Me." She said.
He looked at her in the eyes.
"Look, Steve, I know what you're going to say, and I agree with you, it was obviously a mistake from both of us and-"
"A mistake… is that what you call it?" Steve asked frowning.
"Steve, we were both drunk off our asses and we weren't even thinking! I think that qualifies as a mistake, don't you?" she asked finally meeting his eyes.
The silence in the room was challenging. Neither of them dared to move. At last she had had enough.
"Whatever, look I'm gonna call Danny so he can get us out of here. He asked me to tell you, I told you." Kono stated as she picked up her phone.
She suddenly could see Steve walking rapidly towards her and next thing she knew her phone was on the ground and her back was pressed firmly against the wall, Steve's chest pressed against hers and is head only mere inches from hers.
"Did you want it to happen?"
"What?" her heart rate was by now accelerating at a definitely non recommendable speed.
"The sex. Are you really gonna resume it all to drinking or are you gonna admit that you wanted it?" Steve asked.
Kono was quiet for a few seconds until she got her voice back and answered.
"Yes, I wanted it to happen."
Steve smirked at that.
"Me too. Now if we both wanted it to happen why are you calling it a mistake exactly?" Steve asked while starting to lean in.
"Look, we can't do this, you're my boss, and we can't cross that line."
Steve gave a breathy chuckle.
"Yeah, I'm pretty sure that line has already been crossed."
"Smart ass." She replied.
"You like it."
And with that he crashed his lips onto hers in a passionate fiery kiss. She got lost in it at the first contact and put her arms around his neck bringing him closer and deepening the kiss. He encircled his arms around her waist and they quickly were lost in each other. The need of air was too much now but they only broke apart for a second before their lips were locked again and Kono was starting to pull on his black tee shirt.
"In a hurry are we?" he asked against her lips.
"Shut up." She replied as she slid his shirt off his body and immediately searched his lips again. Her hands came down to run across his rock hard abs and Steve slid his hands onto the back of her thighs, successfully pulling her up and locking her legs around his waist. He was starting to pull her tank top over her head when they heard the lock turn and saw Danny coming into the closet.
"Well, have you two made up yet…? OH MY GOD!" Danny yelled as he spotted them, covering his eyes immediately.
"Danny, what are you doing here?" Kono shouted.
"Oh my God! What are you two? Horney teenagers? My poor eyes!" he said as he started walking towards the exit of the closet.
Once the door to the closet was securely closed the two of them locked eyes and started laughing so hard they had to bend over to get it under control. They laughed for several minutes until they had to stop when their ribs started to ache.
"Serves him …right for locking …us …in here." Kono stated through a fit of giggles.
Steve bend his head and kissed her quickly on the lips one more time.
"Come on, you're coming home with me." He stated while putting his shirt back on.
"Yes sir." She replied.
They walked out of the closet hand in hand, feeling happier than ever.
