This function can only be run one time, please help me

Live demo: http://leoaivy.github.io/projects/innerbus/task2.html

When clicking the white box, the parent box will increase its size then the text gradually apprears. But after clicking the close button and clicking the white box again, the parent box still increases its size while the text doesn't appear. Just don't know why. Please help me, thank you very much for your help!

Can you verify that the codepen looks like a white background with an orange polygon? I'm not sure if I see the white box you're referring to...

You might consider assigning your setTimeout to a variable so when you close the box you can execute window.clearTimeout(timeoutVariable) to clear your timer and get you back to your foundational state.
