When we finally reached the isolated house James made sure to rush to knock on the door. Again he knocked three times and rang the doorbell. He waited impatiently for the door to open.
"Calm down." I scolded, "If you freak out you're going to start making me freak out."
"Maybe you should freak out. You could die Adelle." He said seriously as he ran his fingers through his hair. I didn't want to show him how afraid I was of what was happening so I pretended to be bored as we waited for the door to open. After a few minuted, which felt like forever in the cooling desert night, the door opened with Olivia standing in the doorway.
"What's wrong?" She looked worried as she stared at me, avoided James' horrified expression.
"I guess-" I started but James quickly cut me off.
"She's having seizures now!" James exclaimed as he rushed inside the door. I followed slowly behind.
"It's not that bad. They went away before." I tried to calm everyone. The woman looked sincerely worried as she shut the door behind me.
"We need to tell Peter." She began to rush towards the back, causing James and me to both quicken our pace. I knew it must be bad if she was so worried about somebody she didn't even know. I almost just wanted to run away, back to my old house when I was still living with Walter, but I knew that would do me no good. Instead I could stay here and hopefully get some help.
"Peter!" Olivia called out and her husband turned around, "Peter, it's getting worse again." He stood up and walked over to me.
"What's wrong?" He asked quietly as he placed his hand gently on my shoulder.
"Seizures, she's having seizures." James called out. Peter's look of worry grew intensely.
"Dear, it appears that your theory of age is wrong. Seizures are a new side effect. This is really bad." He spoke to his wife as he examined my eyes. Their dubiousness only made the knot that was quickly growing in my stomach feel more intense. I didn't know what was happening to me and now I really didn't know what was happening to me.
"Come, sit down." Peter assured as he led me to a soft chair, "I want to check all your vitals." Every time he checked something new, his face clenched tighter and tighter.
"What's wrong?" Olivia's strained voice whispered from behind. I found it strange that they were so invested in my health.
"Temperature is 102 degrees and her blood pressure is 180 over 110." He tried to calm his voice but I could hear the stress than clung to his words.
"She needs to leave." Olivia said disappointed as she stared ahead.
"I need to leave where?" I was so confused, how would leaving do me any good? If this was happening to me again it wouldn't just stop by leaving a certain area.
"This town. Maybe even state." Peter said as he rubbed the growing bags under his eyes.
"Why?" James questioned them sounding just as confused as I was, " I mean, I know you guys are geniuses but it doesn't make any sense. Why here?"
"Not here. Me." Olivia almost sounded ashamed as she spoke the short three words that raised a million more questions that I was now itching to get answered.
"Why does she have to run from you." James questioned again, speaking the words I struggled to get out.
"It's a long story." She whispered. She stood there with her eyes closed as a tear appeared to fall out of her eye and run down her cheek.
"Well this mystery needs solving, I think." James nearly shouted, "So why don't you tell us why she needs to leave here? Because if she hasto leave so do I." Olivia's tried to dry her tears while Peter stared over at her, not looking glued together himself.
"We are opening a door." Olivia whispered again.
"We, by we you mean you and Adelle?" Olivia nodded.
"Both of us. We both are affected by cortexiphan.
"How could she be affected by cortexiphan? She wasn't even around for that unless," James held his pointed in the air as he seemed to be connecting things.
"She's your-" He pointed to me and then Olivia, trailing off again shaking his head, "Oh my gosh!" He held his head. I had no idea what was happening, I sat there and felt a pain start to form in my head as James's great epiphany struck him.
"What's going on?" I held my aching head.
"They're your parents!" James shouted as he moved quickly around the lab, "It all makes sense now. Why they were so worried about you. Why they wanted to find something to help as quickly as possible. Why they loved you the minute they saw you!" I heard his loud words diminish into a soft sounding yell.
"Adelle? What's wrong?" Peter grabbed my head between his hands.
"My head!" I screeched, "It feels like it's going to explode!" I felt tears start to run down my cheeks quickly as the room began to fade and suddenly I felt nothing, heard nothing. Everything was just black.
