Safekeeping: Prelude

It's not often that someone can say they grew up in the spotlight, and even more rare can they say that they have lived as three different people. Nestled in the quiet town of Oasis Springs lives one such person and her name is Alivia Karnovsky. Or at least it is now.




On the outside Alivia appears to be just a small town girl but due to her parent's occupations she has been in protective custody since she was born. Not even she doesn't know this information. Each time Alivia has been relocated her memories along with everyone else around her are wiped and she is allowed a clean slate.


This most recent change came about when her mother, Agent 054, had a mission go horribly wrong. Not only compromising her life but the life of her unsuspecting daughter. The Agency that employs her parents has been under contract with them since her birth and so long as they stay alive so will Alivia.


And alive is just one way to look at it, as it pertains to the young woman's life. Each move brings about a wipe but none of the challenges presented to an average person who has to pick up their lives and move on. It is unclear if Alivia even houses memories of her parents or if they truly even care for her. Only time will tell....

Great beginning! I am super intrigued. She is a lovely girl and I am dying to know more about this memory wipe business.

Oh wow, what a start. So her parents are some sort of secret agents but she doesn't know them. Whenever they are compromised she has to be moved and then everyone she's come in contact with have their memories wiped! That is some real Men In Black stuff! Can't wait to read more. :)
