Joshua knew Harold’s ongoing condition could not be a byproduct of his upbringing. He resumed the update of his records in frustration. I have worked with the patient for eighteen years trying to solve the berserker syndrome. Over time, Harold’s rage and superhuman strength have become more controlled, but they have never gone away. His half-sibling seemed to overcome this condition before puberty and never again exhibited it. The only significant difference between Bill and Harold is that Harold is the result of an incestuous rape. I wonder if there is a genetic anomaly involved?
Joshua sat back and sighed. What am I missing?
A loud pop went off down the hall toward Richard’s office, but his own thoughts consumed him. Then a howl vibrated the walls of the hallway. Joshua’s closed office door rattled inside its frame. He immediately knew something was horribly wrong. Joshua lunged for the doorknob and swung the door open. He sprinted out the door toward Richard’s office and found the door open. Through the opened door he could hear a woman crying and the smashing of furniture. Joshua held up his pace just short of the door. Peeking through, he found Barbara cowering on the floor. Harold’s large hands gripped a massive oak bookshelf over his head. He threw it with one mighty heave against the wall. The shelf embedded into the wall and splintered. Joshua quickly grabbed Barbara and pulled her from the room.
