Drabble Challenge #34

Prompt: green

Jeff woke to find that everything was green except the things that were supposed to be green. The trees were red, the grass was purple, and the money in his wallet was orange. As frightening as this was, losing his job was terrifying. Dressing quickly, he rushed to work. Upon entering government building, R-298471-A he found his superiors waiting for him. “How are you feeling?” asked his boss.

“Um, uh…just fine. Why?”

“We noticed that your work was lacking creativity, so we manipulated your genes. If your body is failing to cooperate, I’m afraid we may have to demote you.”
