I don't own anything Five-0 or CBS related.
Steve get's to meet his Idol, Miles Bartlett, a real life James Bond. Things are not as they appear and secrets are revealed that will change Steve's life forever.
Steve, Danny, Chin and Kono sat in the conference room of Five-0 headquarters laughing while sipping on the coffee and Malasadas that Kono had surprised them with earlier.
"These are so good" commented Steve with his mouth full
"I am actually surprised that you are eating them" Danny remarked
"What? I eat once in a while. It's all about moderation" Steve lectured
Kono and Chin laughed.
Governor Denning approached the offices of Five-0 with determination. He was accompanied by a tall, distinguished looking man dressed in a tailored suite, complete with tie. Steve noticed the two men as they entered the suite of offices and immediately exited his office, very eager to greet them.
"Commander McGarrett, I have someone who is interested in meeting you. Commander this is…."
Steve interrupted "Lord Miles Bartlett" With a smile on his face; He extended his hand "It's an honor to meet you sir"
"Lord Bartlett is apparently a fan of yours McGarrett and has requested to meet you. He would like to spend some time with you and your team. He is interested in setting up a similar task force in London" Governor Denning spoke with pride.
A fan of mine, how does he even know who I am? Steve thought
"I am honored, sir. I have heard so much about you." Steve was in awe
Danny, Chin and Kono watched from afar and were surprised at the look of awe that appeared on Steve's face.
"Is it just me, or is Steve actually drooling over meeting this guy and did you all notice…the man is wearing a tie?" Danny retorted as the others laughed trying to remain professional.
"Guys come here, Lord Bartlett this is Detective Daniel Williams, Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly, and Officer Kono Kalakaua. Guys, this is Lord Miles Bartlett. He works with British Intelligence" Steve introduced
Miles briefly acknowledged Danny and Chin, but carefully took Kono's hand and slowly brought it to his lips and kissed it. "A pleasure to meet you" He whispered as he gently released her hold.
Oh my God, I think I am in love thought Kono. Danny, Chin and Steve stared as Kono had a glaze that covered her face.
"So, Lord Bartlett, what brings you to Hawaii?" Danny asked
"I was here on official business, but I have a few days before I have to return to London. I have been aware of Lt Commander McGarrett's reputation and was very eager to meet him in person."
Danny found this comment suspicious as he exchanged glances with Chin.
"Governor Denning speaks very highly of this team and I am looking forward to spending a few days, shadowing you".
Bartlett continuously looked at his phone, checking his messages.
They sat for several hours and listened to stories of some of the adventures that Miles had been on, until he finally asked Steve the question that had been on his mind since he arrived.
"So, Steve, I heard about the little adventure in Japan. How did you finally catch up with WoFat?"
Steve was stunned at the directness of the question and hesitated. Danny, Chin and Kono exchanged looks.
"It wasn't easy, but I had been after him for quite some time." Steve skirted around the answer
"I heard it was very easy, almost as if he wanted to be caught. I do have friends at Interpol and if I am not mistaken, that is who compiled your team" Miles was slightly caddy in his remark as he looked at his watch and noted the time. "If you don't mind I have a small personal matter that I must attend to, so if it is alright with you, may we continue this tomorrow morning?" Lord Bartlett was apologetic.
"Of course, anything you need. We will see you in the morning" Steve was eager to please as Bartlett exited the suite of offices.
"Of course, anything you need" Danny mimicked. "Are you kidding me? Did you just fall all over yourself over this guy? Is there something we should know Steven?" Danny was jealous "And look at Kono, she still has that dumb look on her face"
"Danny, you have no idea who this is. This is the real life, James Bond. Not a fictional character, but a guy who actually does the things that you only hear stories and rumors of. He is a legend, a real life legend. Every guy wants to be him and every woman wants to be with him. I can't believe he wanted to meet me. I can't believe we get to spend the next few days with him. I can't wait to tell Cath about this. She is going to flip out." Steve was excited
"I don't think he's that great" Chin responded "Right Kono?"
"Huh? What? Did you say something?" Kono still had this glazed look on her face.
"You didn't think it was odd that he was asking about WoFat? Apparently he knew a lot more about your little field trip than he let on. I mean how did he know about where you got your team from? I don't trust him" Danny was suspicious
"War stories, Danny. It is nothing but a war story to him. Catching WoFat is a big deal, not just for me, but for the entire intelligence community" Steve got slightly defensive.
Steve may have been satisfied with his explanation but Danny was suspicious. After his encounter with the CIA, he was not convinced that WoFat was going to be in prison for too much longer. He was sure that he had friends in high places, or worse yet, enemies in high places.
As Miles made his way across the parking lot, he proceeded to dial his cell phone. After several rings the call went directly to voicemail. "Hello darling, Lord Bartlett here again, I'm in Hawaii and I need to meet up with you. I left you several messages. You must return my call. I am staying at the Royal Hawaiian."
