In your eyes I'm so picture perfect
In your eyes the grass is greener
Have you seen it though my eyes?
Through my eyes
Many parents want a perfect child, others test the laws of
nature to make this possible.
Everest is proper, well mannered, polite, the perfect little
lady. She doesn't talk back to her elders, or anyone for that
matter. Her bed is always made, everything is kept clean, and
she'll always do what she is told. Like a flock of sheep, she
goes with the flow of things, follows law and order, and is
all around perfect, to her parents at least. It's an almost
eerie perfection, as if she's never done wrong, and never
learned from her mistakes.
This little sheep will be happily talking to a new
acquaintance one day, get along with them the next, then out
of nowhere, she may have been forgotten them just like that.
Wouldn't know what their name was or anything, as if she's
never met them before. In fact, she lacks any friends because
of this, even if she's remembered them or not. No one has been
able to handle being forgotten so easily with no reason why.
But her parents know. Every time she does wrong, or anything
that they don't approve of, her memory is wiped of that
instance. However this task has its flaws, causing her to
forget things surrounding that memory as well. It's as if her
memory is saved each night she does well, and wiped clean if
She's discovered this memory erasing multiple times, fretted
about it, and tried to run away, but her parents simply locate
her, and revert her back as if she never left. Because of
this, she can seem dense at times, especially having to repeat
something over and over to her each day. Because she's never
learned the proper way of trial and error, she usually gets
herself into trouble when she's by herself. But it's never a
problem, for she won't remember it anyway.
Everest is one of many that are being experimented on, tested
to alter thoughts and memories as if their minds were simply
computers. Her memory manipulation is caused by a tiny chip
in her head, which is still a work in progress but the more
they know how it works in a functioning person, the better the
technology will be.
Once in a while, Everest is able to keep these memories hidden
from her parents, and treasures them dearly. Though she
doesn't want to do wrong, it's something that's been kept of
her for so long that her curiosity craves. These memories can
be from telling her parents a tiny fib, to more extravagant
ones that she doesn't remember but has written down in a
diary, which she keeps as equally hidden. No, really, she
often forgets it's location and is surprised when she reads
over her own words each time. When she does think about
running away though, it's never far, for since she knows so
little of the world at her age, it's a scary place to be in by
herself for long.
She has since been freed from her ties, her clones destroyed, but is on the streets with next to no knowledge of the real world and how cruel, or nice it can really be. She's still being hunted down however, a certain kingpin wants his property back.
