AN: Here's another quick story for everyone! Hope y'all like it! Takes place in Season 5.
DISCLAIMER: I own nothing of Hawaii Five-0.
Danny let out a groan when he's awoken by his phone ringing. He blindingly felt over his bedside table for it. Finally having found it, Danny hit the answer button and put the phone to his ear.
"Williams," he said into the device with his eyes still shut.
"Hey we got a case," Steve's voice sounded in his ear. Danny sighed and rolled over onto his back.
"I'm assuming I'm picking you up?" Danny grumbled into the phone as he pushed his self up and out of bed.
"I'll see you in twenty," Steve said by way of answer before he hung up the phone.
Danny sighed and ran a hand down his face. Setting his phone back on the table he grabbed a change of clothes and headed into the bathroom to take a shower. One thing he hated more than late night case calls was late night case calls on the weekend. Thankfully, it wasn't his weekend with Grace.
Thirty five minutes later and Danny found himself pulling into Steve's driveway. He didn't have to wait long before Steve walked out of the house and climbed into the car. Danny backed out and headed towards the crime scene after Steve told him where it was.
"What took you so long?" Steve asked with a glance at his partner.
"I had to take a shower and get ready Steven. Normal people take longer than three minutes to do so," Danny quipped in return.
"What are you talking about? It takes me at least five minutes," Steve countered with a barely suppressed smirk.
"You, are a Neanderthal. First, you interrupt my sleep on my weekend. Now, your degrading me for having good hygiene," Danny replied as he saw the crime scene up ahead.
"Are you saying I don't have good hygiene?" Steve asked as Danny put the car in park.
"There is a reason no one wants to be around you. Besides your surly manner," Danny countered and the two of them exited the Camaro.
"Hey, if anyone has a surly manner it's you buddy. And surly? Really?" Steve argued with a look at Danny. Danny would've continued but they reached Max and their dead body.
"Something tells me this was personal," Danny said as he looked down at the body. There was a bullet hole between the victim's eyes.
"What happened Max?" Steve asked with a nod of agreement at Danny's observation.
"The victim died of a gunshot wound at close range to his head, Max delivered and Steve and Danny looked down at the body. "As of right now I know nothing more since I've only begun my examination."
"All right. Thanks Max," Steve said but didn't move due to Max handing him the fingerprinting machine with the victim's identity on it claiming him as John Dobson.
"I just took his fingerprints," Max explained and Steve thanked him again before he and Danny wandered away.
"I have a gut feeling this is going to be a messy case," Danny said as he watched Steve send the identity information to Chin.
"This is one time I wished your gut feeling would be wrong," Steve said with a sigh and the two of them walked back to the car.
"McGarrett," a uniformed officer by the name of Jones called out as he entered Five-0 headquarters. Steve, Danny, and the rest of the team looked up to see Jones and what looked to be a Fed walking towards them. Steve sighed and shifted so he faced the newcomers.
"Jones," Steve greeted the officer.
"This is Agent Morris. He has some information on a case you're working," Jones explained and Morris moved forward as he pulled out a folder.
"Thanks Jones," Steve said and the man nodded his head before leaving. Steve turned his attention to the agent in front of them. Steve introduced the rest of the team and Morris shook their hands.
"So, you have information on a case?" Steve asked with a furrowed brow as he brought the conversation to the reason the agent was there.
"Your search of John Dobson sent up red flags in our system," Morris began and Steve shared a look with Danny.
"Who's Dobson to you?" Danny asked with his attention back on Agent Morris.
"He's the only witness to a murder committed by Leon Straight," Morris answered with a look at Danny.
"I heard about that. Straight's a drug dealer over on the big island," Chin chimed in and Morris nodded his head in affirmation.
"Without Dobson the case will fall apart, which is why we put him in a safe house to protect him," Morris explained and Steve and Danny shared another look.
"Lot of good that did," Danny muttered and it earned a look from Morris.
"Hate to be the bearer of bad news but Dobson's body was discovered this morning," Steve explained and Morris grimaced and let out a huff before he ran a hand over his face.
"What have you got so far?" Morris asked with a desperate look at Steve.
"Not much of anything, but with your information we now have a suspect," Steve answered and Morris nodded his head before speaking.
"If you don't mind I would like to work with you on the case," Morris said and Steve inwardly groaned. A look at the agent though had Steve feeling sorry for him and the SEAL relented.
"All right. First things first…" Steve replied and nodded at Kono to put everything they had on the screen.
"Okay, I don't know about you guys but I don't think Straight did it. As much as I want to pin this on him," Danny said as he, the rest of Five-0, and Morris looked at the TV screen at the Palace.
"I agree with Danny. The guy's alibi checked out and he seemed genuinely surprised Dobson was dead," Steve agreed with a nod of his head. He, Danny, and Morris had picked up Straight and brought him back to the Palace to interrogate him.
"If he wasn't handcuffed to the table I swear he would've been doing a dance," Danny put in with a shake of his head.
"Surprised but happy," Steve said before he looked back at the screen. He pointed at the picture of Dobson and looked back at Morris. "Who knew Dobson's whereabouts?"
"Only me and my boss. It was a high risk case and we were taking every precaution," Morris explained with a look at Steve. Steve and Danny shared a look. "Hey, I know what you're thinking, but I wanted to come here. It was my boss who wanted to take the case from you."
"Your boss wanted to take the case?" Chin asked with a furrowed brow. It wasn't that surprising due to that interdepartmental collaboration never seemed to happen without being forced but knowing everything else, it had Chin wondering. Morris nodded his head and Chin immediately began pulling up information on Morris' boss, Luke Galloway.
"You really think my boss is dirty?" Morris asked as he didn't want to believe it.
"We're going to find out," Steve replied with a look at Galloway's profile on the screen.
