Keeping a Promise

Brenda came home from the Nexus, telling the girls to take Ace out and throw the ball for him for awhile and then wheeling wearily toward the elevator. The slight cough she'd wakened with that morning was worse, and her head was ringing slightly as though she had a fever, but she pushed away the symptoms as she rode down to the Cave. The formula that she hoped would restore Kat to her proper age was completed, and she'd finished the initial testing. Trials on adult mice had shown no effect, but trials on mice that had been regressed with the formula that Kat had been exposed to had returned to their proper appearance.

She'd done those tests seven days ago, and the mice continued healthy. So all that was left now was for human testing.

Brenda wheeled into the lab and scrubbed her hands, then removed the container of de-aging compound from the locked cupboard and set it in her lap while she also got the antidote. This done, she wheeled toward a containment room and locked herself inside.

One whiff of the compound had her blinking disorientedly at the change in perspective and a little sick to her stomach, but she steeled herself and injected the antidote straight into a vein.

Perspective changed again, and Brenda managed a smile before her eyes slipped shut and she toppled from the wheelchair.

Leslie had come up to the mansion with some charts regarding the children's health and the lists of innoculations each of them was missing in hand. Pointed to the Cave Leslie went down, then blinked when she saw the Containment Room in use.

Hurrying over she looked in, then gasped and quickly went to try and secure the room to get in and to Brenda.

"I think I told you to take it easy, not test antidotes on yourself," she said, almost sternly.

Leslie nodded and set the icepack to her forehead. "Now just take it easy."

"You're not. And he should be home any moment," Leslie said gently.

Just then Kat stuck her head in. "The cop's home. Want me to chase him away?"

He smiled and kissed her forehead. "We'll worry about it later. Sweet dreams, sweetheart."

Kat didn't stir, but Leslie pat her arm. "I think she only just took the antidote. Don't worry about her."

"Easy, Brenda, it was just a nightmare. It's me, Jim," Jim said, holding on and stroking her hair. "It's alright."

"Yes. It worked," Jim said, then looked. "Kat, come here."

The young woman looked at him crossly, then walked over.

"I'm here, Brenda. It worked," she said, looking at her, eyes dull.
