The power of friendship

By RoxyGoth

Drama / Action

Chapter 1

Dodging blow after blow Iron Fist easily countered the attacks the bad guy of the week was giving him, stepping backwards he dodged another one only to fall onto the seats of a car. 

Panic set in as he realised he wasn't going to be able to get up in time, at least not with this guy towering over him.

"Nighty-night, light-boy." The creep smiled. He then reared his fist back and hit Danny straight in the stomach, winding him instantly.Smiling like a demented clown the creep rained down first after fist until eventually Iron Fist couldn't see straight. 

Then he heard a voice."HEY! CREEP! Pick on someone your own size!" Luke. He couldn't see what was happening but judging by the sounds there was a real showdown going on.

Meanwhile Luke slammed a fist into the guys jaw, breaking it instantly. "THIS is what happens to guys who attack my team!"

"You do realise this is a FIGHT, yes?" The bad guy hissed, clutching his jaw.

Luke didn't even bother to dignify that with a response as he casually knocked the guy unconscious. 

Of course he knew this was a fight, it was fairly obvious, but still there were limits in his eyes, and attacking one of his team definately crossed it. Especially when the team-member in question was his best friend.Talking of which he better check on him. 

Power man gave a quick glance round; the fight was now over and Sam, Ava and Peter were together talking. As he approached the car he could here groaning. The sight that met his eyes would never leave him.

 Danny had blood running down his face and one of his eyes was already bruised. Luke couldn't see any more bruises, but he was certain Danny would have a million more under his costume. He was also fairly certain that the guy he'd just smashed was actually just hitting Danny for the thrill of it, not caring about where he struck him and just wanting to cause as much pain as possible.

With that thought Luke was glad he'd noticed and intervened when he had, otherwise who knew when the creep would have stopped? Probably when Danny was dead.

"Dude, what happened!?" Sam screeched, having suddenly appeared next to his ear hole.

"That creep over there decided to make Danny into a pulp."

Sam followed Luke's nod and saw the unconscious guy. "Ah, so you whacked him into a bad-guy pizza!"

"Mmhh-hhm."

"Hey guys, where's Iron – wow! Okay, found him." Peter of course."

"I called Fury." Ava. "He's on his way. Where's Dan – OH MY GOD!"

"What happened? Who did this? Tell me so I can pound him." Spidey said, with rare venom, looking around as if he expected the guy to materialise in front of him.

"Get in line." Ava growled, cracking her fists.

Sam explained what had happened while Luke gently picked up Danny who subconsciously whimpered in pain and flinched a little.

Seeing this Sam frowned. "Okay, I know he's already unconscious, but LET ME AT HIM!"

"No can do." Fury cut in, appearing out of nowhere like he always does. "He'll be taken into Shield custody. Trust me; we'll 'look after him.'"

 

"And we'll get Danny to a doctor to look after him. He'll be okay." Coulson went to take Danny from Luke, but seeing the protective look in his eyes decided against it. "On second thoughts, maybe you'd like to accompany him in the helicopter to the hospital? We could do with someone keeping an eye on him."

Luke set Danny down on the bed in the helicopter and stepped back while SHIELD agents rushed around him; testing Danny on his Blood pressure, heart beat that kind of thing.Luke sat down in an uncomfortable chair; one thought running through his mind as the helicopter lifted off. 'Danny, you better be okay.'
