So I have been writing across a couple of different fandoms this summer. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Hawaii Five-0 are the new ones. While the Buffy has taken over a bit in the last month or so, I have a crossover Twilight/Hawaii Five-0 story that I am getting back to so I can hopefully have it complete within the month.
I am going to post, what is basically the 1st chapter below. Let me know your thoughts! The title of the story is: Elikapeka.
“Steve, the Governor’s office called while you were out. Some high profile singer is coming to the island next week and they want Five-0 to do security for it.” Danny called as Steve walked back into HQ.
“Why didn’t they call me?” Steve asked
Danny a little confused by the lack of reaction given the current state of the case they were working replied, “They did. I guess you didn’t answer and so they called me as the backup.”
“OK” Steve replied as he headed to his office.
“REALLY! OK, that is all I’m going to get? Why aren’t you more upset about this? We are in the middle of a murder investigation that has been torture from the get go due to lack of evidence. We don’t need to be wasting our time being security for some pop princess who is nervous about a few threats!” Danny ranted as his hands flew around his head.
“Wow, brah. You need to calm down.” Kono interjected from the table.
“Danny, the Governor is our boss. He asked us to run security on this. He know’s our primary objectives and strengths I have to believe that he has a good reason for his request.” Steve returned calmly, “As for our current investigation, I was actually on the phone with Max and he was able to narrow down the window of the TOD with Charlie’s help. It is looking like the wife is implicated in the murder.”
“Oh my God! Danno, did you hear that Isabella is going to be performing in Hawaii this month?” Grace exclaimed as she got into the car.
“Is that right, Monkey? Who is Isabella?” Danny asked distractedly as he pulled back into traffic.
“She is only the best singer ever! Not only is she is amazing but she does TONS of charity work too. She isn’t one of those shallow singers either. She actually volunteers for the charities she donates to too!” Grace gushed. “She is going to do a concerts for the public at the Blaisedell Arena but also doing a concert exclusively for the military at Pearl-Hickam. It was just announced today that the tickets are going on sale at the end of the week for the public concert. It is going to be Friday, May 27th. The Pearl-Hickam concert is going to be Sunday, for Memorial Day. I really hope I am able to get tickets!”
‘Ah, well the phone call from the Governor’s office made more sense now. Coordinating security from the public venues to the base would be more easily handled by Five-0 given Steve’s background than HPD. Maybe I should have listened a bit more closely during the call’, Danny thought as the dots connected for him.
“Well, let’s see what we can do about getting tickets. Memorial Day is something I wanted to talk to you about Monkey. I know it is our weekend and mom is going to be in Vegas with Step-Stan, but I was told I am going to have to work part of that weekend today. Given this new information, what if you see if you and your friends can plan a sleepover for that weekend on Friday? I assume your friends are just as excited for this news as you!” Danny proposed. He didn’t want to tell her exactly why he had to work until he had more information. Thankfully, Steve called the Governor’s office back that afternoon and had a meeting scheduled with them tomorrow afternoon while the rest of them wrapped up the paperwork from the case.
Grace looked sad as Danny told her about his need to work that weekend but brightened right up when he offered a sleepover as an alternative.
“We had already been talking about it. I was going to ask if we could hold it since it was our weekend, but Kealani was also talking about having it at her house. I’ll text her now and say that she can have it at her house. Kealani, Stacey, Rose, Mahina and I were all talking about it today. They were going to go home tonight and ask their parents if we could have a sleepover and go to the concert on Friday.” Grace told Danny.
“Well, I am OK with the sleepover on Friday and I will talk to your mom when I drop you off about the concert. I also know Uncle Steve wants to have a barbeque on Monday afternoon too.” Danny agreed as he punched in the code for the gate at Rachel’s house.
As Rachel opened the door, she looked surprised that Danny was getting out of the car.
“OK Monkey, why don’t you go in and start your homework while I talk to Mom.” Danny told Grace as he released her from the hug they shared at the door.
“Daniel, how can I help you?” Rachel inquired.
“Well, first Grace wants to go to a concert at the end of the month. Isabella is coming to the island to perform and Grace and all of her friends want to go. They also want to have a sleepover that night. I told her I would talk it over with you. It is my weekend with her, Memorial Day weekend but I wanted to talk to you about it. I was just informed I am going to have to work on that Friday night. Five-0 has been called into handle security for Isabella. I told Grace I had to work on Friday night so was OK with the sleepover. I haven’t told her why I have to work until I have more details. What do you think about Grace attending a concert? I assume we will liaise with the other parents.” Danny informed Rachel.
“Why was Five-0 called in for security and not HPD? Is there some type of threat, because if so I don’t want Grace to go.” Rachel probed.
“I don’t think there is a threat. But, like I said I don’t have all the details. We got a call from the Governor’s office today saying we were in charge of coordinating her security on the island. Grace told me she is also holding a concert at Pearl-Hickam on Sunday exclusively for the military and their families, so I assume it is because of that we were put in charge. With Steve’s connections on the base it will make it easier for us to liaise then HPD. Steve has a meeting with the Governor’s office tomorrow to get more details. Thankfully we just wrapped a case today and will have some time to devote to this.” Danny explained.
“OK. I guess that does make sense. But, please keep me informed if there is anything I need to know. Who is going to hold the sleepover?” Rachel asked.
“I always do Rachel, even when it doesn’t look good for me. You know that. Kealani wants to have it and since I won’t be around that night Grace let her know it was fine.” Danny answered.
“Well, I have no problem with the sleepover. They will be starting summer holiday the following week anyway. It would have more impact for you. As for the concert, as long as Kealani’s parents go or one of the others I don’t have a problem with it. I would feel better if one of us were going, but if you are going to be there anyway it should be fine.” Rachel told Danny. “How are they going to coordinate the tickets and who is going?”
“I don’t know. Grace said the girls were going to go home tonight and talk it over with their parents. The tickets go on sale on Friday, so I would say we can speak with the parents tomorrow night to plan who is going and how to get the tickets. Since Grace has cheering with the girls tomorrow, maybe you can speak with them when you pick her up? Does that work for you?” Danny questioned.
“Yes, I will do that and let you know what is decided.” Rachel agreed.
“OK. Do you want to call up to Grace, so we can let her know? I am sure she has been texting her friends for updates.” Danny asked.
Rachel nodded and motioned for Danny to follow her into the entryway. “Grace! Please come down here” Rachel called.
“So?” Grace asked as she came sprinting down the stairs.
“Your father and I have talked it over and have agreed to let you go to the concert with your friends. But, we have to speak with your friends parents since I am going to be away and your father has to work. You are not going to be allowed to go without parental supervision. I assume since Kealani has volunteered to host a sleepover one of her parents will be going, but we want to discuss it with all of the parents. Since you have cheer with the girls tomorrow, I will speak to their parents then and plan a bit more.” Rachel told Grace.
“Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! It is going to be SO AMAZING!” Grace squealed. “Kealani texted me earlier and her parents are on board with a sleepover and the concert. We are still waiting to hear from Rose and Mahina.”
“I’m glad you are excited Monkey. I will be speaking with your mom tomorrow after she sees the other parents. We will get it worked out. I have to head out now.” Danny interjected. Grace ran over and hugged her father. “Danno loves you” he whispered. “Love you too!” Grace replied.
