Featuring: The Five-O crew, Grace Williams, a few OCs, and others.
Joe White looked around at the team. "Alright, we were able to get satellite footage of the airport from the approximate time that McGarrett would have landed. Cross referenced that with security footage from said airport and we believe that we found the location where he was taken. The car that he left in only made one stop. We'll fly out to that same airport and from there go straight to the location."
"Sounds good to me, sir. When do we leave?" Jackson spoke up catching all of their attention.
"You're not going anywhere. Chelsea would kill me." Danny sighed turning to look at him.
"With all due respect, that is my little sister that was taken. Try and stop me, Daniel."
The older man sized him up and nodded his head. "You enlisted?"
"Chief Petty Officer Jackson Walker, sir. United States Navy." He stood at attention in front of him.
Joe cracked a slight smile. "At ease. This could get you into a whole heap of trouble. Ruin your naval career."
"Chelsea is my little sister. I'd ruin my career ten times over if it meant getting her back safely, sir."
He nodded his head again. "Good answer. You're in."
"Look, I get it. Just do as we say and we'll have them home in no time." Danny relented and the team moved to get ready to go.
It felt like hours had passed since Wo Fat had dragged Steve out of the room. The baby was fed and her diaper was changed. Against her better judgment, Chelsea slid the diaper bag over her shoulder and grabbed the carrier that Joan was currently sleeping in. She silently carried her out of the room. It was eerily quiet as she glanced around the halls trying to decide which direction to go. She quickly chose to go right and carefully walked in that direction. There was no real way of telling where she was going though she was thankful that the hallways were well lit. The hallway she was walking down opened up into a large area. There didn't seem to be anyone around. That is until she saw someone sprawled out barely sitting up against the wall. A gasp fell from her lips when she realized the person was Steve. Chelsea quietly rushed over looking over him for any signs of injury. His face was battered and bruised. That much was obvious to her. She reached out to check his pulse and he grabbed her wrist instantly.
Steve relaxed when he realized it was just her. "You.. shouldn't be here."
She sighed in relief dropping her hand once he let go of her wrist. "Yeah well I couldn't just sit in that room waiting to be rescued. Your niece is running low on formula."
He glanced around the best he could then looked at her again. "There's a door to the ri.. left of me. It'll lead you right outside. Go.. don't look back."
Chelsea's eyebrows furrowed as she frowned at him. "Steve, I can't just leave you here."
Steve barely cracked a smile at her. "Chels, I'll be fine. Go. Please."
The brunette sighed pressing a kiss to his head then stood up. Adjusting the bag, she picked up the baby carrier and walked toward the door in question. Chelsea gave one last look toward Steve before opening the door. Standing there was Wo Fat himself.
"Going somewhere, Miss Walker?"
"Alright so what's the plan of action? There's no telling how many men he has in there or if he has them at gunpoint." Danny pointed out glancing around at the rest of the team.
Joe pondered this studying the warehouse that loomed ominously nearby. "Well if this were any other case, you'd find out all the details of the building that you'd need to know."
"Already ahead of you. It's two stories high, but only one floor. Exits are here, here, here, here, and here." Kono pointed out pulling up a digital floor plan on her tablet.
He nodded his head at her. "Good work. We'll head in as a group then split up."
"Be quiet about it. Last thing we want is to startle the baby alerting Wo Fat and whatever men of his are left to our presence." Erin added looking over at the warehouse again.
Chelsea trembled cowering in a corner of the room with the baby. Thankfully the infant was still asleep. She tried not to show too much fear just in case though. Steve sat up a bit more clearly concerned as Wo Fat pulled out his gun. The man held the gun firmly in his hand and walked around looking at them both.
Steve swallowed hard watching him. "Look, just let them go. You have me. She..She was just trying to get the baby out of here. She's low on food for her."
Raising the hand that was holding the gun, Wo Fat aimed it at her and looked at Steve.
"Her blood is on your hands." He pulled the trigger and a shot rang out seemingly echoing around the room.
Green eyes widened in shock. A crimson stain slowly soaked her shirt. She collapsed to the floor grateful that she had already set the baby carrier down. Still protectively she remained beside the infant. Anger flooded Steve's veins and with that came a spike of adrenaline. He got to his feet tackling Wo Fat to the ground. The man shoved Steve off of him getting back to his feet. Steve got back to his feet quickly tackling him once more this time sending them both crashing through the door to the outside of the building.
The sound of the gunshot pierced the air catching the team's attention. Danny and Jackson shared a look. The two men swiftly headed in the direction the shot was heard coming from. The rest of the team followed suit clearing the building along the way. Chelsea laid on the floor bleeding beside the baby carrier. The two men rushed to her side. Jackson checked on the infant then turned his attention to Chelsea putting pressure on her wound in an attempt to stop the bleeding. She winced in pain only to relax a little when Danny grabbed her hand.
"Jersey..." He gripped her hand squeezing it gently.
She smiled softly gazing up at him. "Danny!"
"Hey easy kiddo. You're hurt. We're going to get you out of here and get you all fixed up though." Jackson made his presence known to his little sister.
Her eyebrows furrowed in panic. "Wait where's Wo Fat? He'll hurt you too."
"We're safe, Chels. You just hang in there." Danny assured her.
Kono gently moved the baby away from her and grabbed the baby's bag. Seeing the door open, Joe cautiously stepped outside followed by Erin and Chin. There were clear signs of a struggle, but no one was there. They followed the trail of blood a few feet away only to find Steve and Wo Fat fighting. He regained control and began to pummel Wo Fat's face. The three people watching shared a look unsure of what to do.
Joe sighed shaking his head. "Steven, son, that is enough. You're safe now."
Steve gave the man a few more punches then slowed to a stop. "Chelsea..."
"We need to get her to a hospital, Steve." Erin called out.
Joe walked over with Chin pulling him away from the other man. Chin checked on Steve while Wo Fat slumped to the ground. Joe carefully knelt down checking his pulse. Before he could say anything, Jackson came rushing out of the building carrying Chelsea. Kono followed with baby Joan and Danny rushed out behind her.
Steve frowned shaking his head. "We need to get her to a hospital now before she bleeds out."
The older man assessed the situation for a moment before agreeing. "Go on ahead. I'll take care of all this."
Steve wanted to protest, but hearing his niece make noise made him change his mind. The group quickly piled into the SUV that had gotten them there in the first place and drove off. Jackson and Danny kept talking to Chelsea trying to keep her awake. Joe White called in the proper authorities while the rest of the group went off in search of the nearest hospital. The wounded brunette grew weaker the longer it took to get there.
Chelsea blinked feeling her eyelids growing heavier. "I'm so tired."
"Just stay awake a little longer, Jersey. We're almost there. Just hang on. Please." Danny pleaded holding her hand as the SUV they were in approached the hospital.
"You're a Walker, damn it. We don't give up without a fight. So you fight, Chelsea." Jackson ordered brushing her hair away from her face.
She took a breath as the car stopped and the guys moved to get her out. "Wait.. what about Joan?"
"The baby is fine. Kono and I got her. She's safe thanks to you, Chelsea." Erin assured her with a smile.
Steve translated for them explaining the situation to the nurse in charge. Suddenly there was a frenzy of activity as Chelsea was rushed inside. Danny and Jackson could only watch helplessly as she was wheeled away from them on a stretcher. Steve and Joan were both examined as well. The infant was given a clean bill of health while her uncle was patched up. It was hours before they heard anything about Chelsea. She had lost a lot of blood and at one point Jackson even volunteered to donate blood for her. When the doctor finally came back out, Steve spoke with him and translated for the rest of them.
He nodded his head sighing in relief. "She's stable, but she lost a lot of blood. They were able to stop the bleeding. She is resting right now, but they are hopeful that she can make it through the night. He wants to see how she improves before he gives the okay for her to get transferred back to Hawaii."
