I am writing an alternative history sci-fi story A man works for a large corporation where he replaces memories and de-programs people for a living. He deprograms a woman and sees himself in her memory, though he doesn't know her. She escapes from the gruesome process and leaves him with questions about his own existence. He goes to extreme lengths to find out who this woman is and what he did in the memory. After he puts the pieces together, should it be revealed he didn't really do anything that horrific, like he imagined? Or should it be something so horrible he wish he never found out? Thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
