WeWriWar 109: Rainbow Catcher

Welcome to a new excerpt of Rainbow Catcher for the Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.  

Soon I'll be able to work on Rainbow Catcher full time. That might not be for long so I'll need to take advantage of it as much as I can.
Then Demon and Fairy is also available for free for reviewers through Shut Up & Read. You can have a look at it here if you want.

Now let's go back to our story.
Summary of previous episodes: Clarissa is coughing and wanted to watch Everett Cooper on TV but Jason refused, she is due to get her rainbow the next day but she seems scared, to make her feel better Jason leave the TV on. Clarissa tried to explain about rainbows, she is a big fan of Everett Cooper but Jason is not too sure about it. Clarissa complained about her dialophone but Jason needs to go to work. Before completely leaving he is thinking about getting her her rainbow.
We start just where we left off last week.

This time, he didn’t care about the means, so he went to the black market. It was illegal and considered stealing as the rainbow didn’t go through the general government taxation process, but emergencies required emergency measures.

There was a bar in the darkest street of the city, a street where nobody bothered to change the broken lights anymore. Jason turned the handle to the right twice, then once to the left. The door whistled and steam rushed underneath before the door moved up. Jason waited for it to be high enough to enter. Once he had passed the entrance, the door sank to the floor with a loud bang that startled him. The bar was barely more lit than the street.

  1. When you're desperate, you're tempted to break the law. Hope is okay in this iffy bar.

  2. Interesting - a back market in rainbows! The part abut the dark street was very vivid, interesting snippet!

  3. "There was a bar in the darkest street of the city, a street where nobody bothered to change the broken lights anymore."
    This is a beautiful sentence. Great work, Linda.

  4. It seems Jason will be anything for her.

  5. I just know this isn't going to turn out well... He's already down on luck; being desperate enough to break the law means he's desperate enough to do something even more dangerous.

  6. His desperation to save her life is making him do things I think he wouldn't otherwise and I worry this could be dangerous for him.

  7. So sorry for the delayed response for this week. Playing catch up on Sunday Snippets.

    Oh boy... This is not going to end well at all for him, is it? Desperate times call for desperate measure though. I really want to see how this plays out now.
