marbleglove Prompt 1: 5 Times Steve saw Danny’s Wings and 1 Time He Didn’t, the first time any (or all) of them fly
Merry Chistmas
 
Time Stamp:20 months after 5x
 
“It’s too soon, it’s too soon,” Kono muttered.  She was being chased by an unknown number of assailants up a volcano.  She can kick ass with the best of them, but not when she was this badly outnumbered.  They were herding her up, up and further up.  It was all very purposeful.  There was a trap at the top, she was sure of it.  She had lost her gun.  She had been separated from her team.  Chin was elsewhere with his shotgun.  McGarrett was hunting down the mobsters from behind, but who knew how many were between here and there.
 
And Danny? 
 
Danny wasn’t supposed to be away from his safe hideaway.
 
Kono only could figure out one way off this volcano and that was to fly.  She had never flown before.  Chances were good that she’s glide for a second or two and go splat.  It would be the ultimate wipeout.
 
It didn’t matter.  She couldn’t hide.  She couldn’t run any more.  She could hear the Hawaiian curses approaching.  If she was going to do this, she was going to at least have some fun with it.
 
She took a deep breath and ran straight off the nearest cliff.  Her wings extended and snapped open, full of air.  Kono concentrated on gliding.  If she didn’t actually attempt to fly, she might survive to the bottom.
 
It was wonderful.  It was glorious.
 
It was surfing with a perfect wave and a perfect sun and no one in her way.
 
But perfection never lasted.
 
Her wings started to shake.  She was going down fast.
 
Her waist stopped suddenly and her wings disappeared.
 
Kono blinked the black out of her eyes and tried to catch her breath.  “Ow.  Ow.  Wipeout.  Did I hit the beach?” she was still as limp as a sack of mangos.
 
A familiar chuckle.  “Would I let you fall, Kono?”
 
“Danny?”
 
“Yeah.”
 
“It’s not safe for you out here.”
 
“It’s a good thing you were wearing a belt,” Danny changed the subject.
 
Ever since that one time that Danny had saved Steve by grabbing his belt in mid flight, Kono and Chin had bought a belt for every outfit and each belt was strong enough to hold their weight.  “Just my lucky day,” Kono told him.  She tried to straighten but her whole body rebelled against the idea.  “Ow.”
 
Danny laughed and landed.  He set Kono down on the ground.  She looked up and saw Steve, Chin and Danny staring down at her.
 
“You shouldn’t have gone off alone,” Chin started the lecture.
 
She glared at Danny but he just smiled and waved.  “Be seeing you, Kono.  Like you said, it’s not safe for me to be out and about.”  Then the lucky, lucky man opened his wings and flew away.
 
Someday, Kono would be able to do that.
