A/N: So I was watching Hawaii Five-0 a few days ago and I saw sexy Chin Ho Kelly and Sharon (the little voice in my head who lives there rent-free) said "You have to write about Chin" and so, here I am, putting off valuable school work to bring you my latest multi-chapter fic. The only character I own is Lucy Meyer; she is a beast. I miiight have tweaked the ages around, but other than that, I think that's about it. Chin is 30 and Kono and Lucy are 28. Hope that clears up any confusion throughout the story. Alright, as always, I own NOTHING (Although, I totally wish I owned Chin. Sexxayness! ). Enjoy! Comments, questions and/or errors, let me know! Love you guys!
You Own My Heart
Prologue: Back to Hawaii
I couldn't believe it. I was moving back to Hawaii! Granted, it was because my life in New York was I danger, but still: I was excited! It had been 10 years since I'd seen any of my old friends. I especially missed Kono. We were as close as sisters. Growing up, she'd always had my back and I always had hers. When I moved to New York to attend NYU at 18, we had promised to stay in touch. Surprisingly, we had. So when I called her two months ago to tell her my life was in danger, she automatically told me I could stay with her. I knew there was a reason I had missed life in Hawaii.
I'd also missed Chin. Chin Ho Kelly. Kono's cousin, my second best friend, and the guy I'd liked since we were little. Yeah, he was two years older than Kono and me, but whatever. He would still hang with us because Kono was his favorite cousin. I didn't really care; as long as he was there, I felt safe.
As I boarded the flight headed to Hawaii, I mentally promised myself that I was not going to let my feelings for Chin get in the way of our friendship. Life was going to go back to the way it was when we were a crew. Yes, I still had that childish dream, but I didn't care. Just so long as everything turned out okay, I could live with it.
The second I stepped off the plane, though, all of those promises flew out the door as I searched for Kono. It wasn't Kono I found, though. Searching around the terminal, I found the one person I'd never expected and wasn't yet ready to see.
I slowly walked up to him, trying incredibly hard not to show the fact that I was totally flustered.
"Chin!" I said smiling as I hugged him. "What's up?" I asked, looking into his coal-colored eyes.
"Nothing. It's been a while." He smiled, but something seemed different about him.
"I know. New York's been fun. How's Hawaii been since I left?"
"Hm, what answer do you want?"
"How about…something weird?" I asked, barely controlling my laughter.
"Well, the aliens have taken over, I now hate coffee, and you have to come over and meet my new boyfriend!"
I burst out laughing. Chin could always make me laugh, even when I was feeling down. "Which one is the truth?" I asked, knowing none of them were. It was our little game we played all the time back when I was 16 and he was 18.
"Pick one," he challenged.
"Aliens. Definitely aliens," I responded stoically.
"You could never hate coffee ever, and you've always been a chick magnet for as long as I've known you." I smirked, trying hard not to laugh again.
He sighed. "You got me. Aliens have taken over. I tried to stop them but they almost vaporized me."
I mock-gasped. "Poor Chin. Did you tell your heroic story to some hot chick yet?"
"His face became serious, but his eyes were laughing. "I told you, didn't I?"
"Haha, puh-lease," I rolled my eyes. "I tell you this truthfully, you try that on anybody else but me and it's not gonna work."
"You suck, Lucy."
"Eh. I just tell it like it is." I smirked and stuck my tongue out at him.
"C'mon. I gotta go back to work and you're coming with me." He picked up my bags and walked outside as I attempted to follow him.
Shielding my eyes from the scorching sun, I easily found Chin. He was loading y bags into the trunk of a white Subaru. "What happened to your super-awesome Ducati?" I asked, pretending to pout.
"This is Kono's car. The bike's parked at HPD."
"Oh, thank God! I think would've died if you'd sold it!" I gasped dramatically, holding my hand over my head.
He smiled at me. "I know."
I laughed and got into the passenger seat.
It only took us 15 minutes to get to HPD. I vaguely remembered Kono mentioning that Chin had become part of the force soon after I left.
Walking into HPD, I felt strange. My body told me that something bad was going to happen. Chin looked over at me and murmured, "You'll be fine. Nothing bad can happen; I'm here."
I smiled up at him and leaned into him. "Thanks," I whispered back.
When we walked into the office, the first person I immediately spotted was Kono. "KONO!" I exclaimed, running over to hug her.
"LUCY! I haven't seen you in ages!"
"I know! Life sucked without you!"
We laughed and talked as though I hadn't been gone for 10 years. "So," she asked quietly, "are you and Chin ever going to get together?"
I giggled. "Kono, you make me laugh!"
"What?" Chin asked.
"Kono asked if we're ever going to get together," I replied.
"Yes, and I'm still waiting on that response," she responded feigning impatience.
I sighed. Kono could be relentless when it came to relationships and impending relationships. "Me and Chin?" I asked, pointing to myself and Chin. "Never." For some reason Chin shifted away from me, making me upset. I didn't feel as safe.
"Hey," a hot, muscled guy said as he walked into the conference room.
"Hell-oh!" I said, pretending to be sexy.
"I'm Steve," hot muscle-y guy said.
"Really? My butt's name is Steve!" I replied, barely able to contain my laughter.
The look on his face was priceless! He looked shocked and speechless, all at the same time. I couldn't help it—I laughed. I laughed like I hadn't laughed in years. It felt so good to be happy. It had been a while. I'm not sure if it was being back in Hawaii or being with Chin. I'm gonna have to go with the latter option, mainly because being here with Chin has made me feel more like myself than I have in 10 years.
