         Every time I look in the mirror, I am greeted by my emerald eyes. I ignore the paleness of my skin and the way my hair falls in waves around my shoulders; I just stare into those eyes. My eyes. If I really stare, I can see the transition from green to black between iris and pupil. There are even odd flecks of grey and brown, but no red. My eyes bear no resemblance to the harsh crimson that has been passed down through the generations for as long as I could remember. I can’t help but feel guilty, like I’ve disappointed my family somehow. They know that today is the day I will leave them. After all, they are just Reds, but I am a Green, and that changes everything.
