WeWriWar 111: Rainbow Catcher

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

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.

"Your turn," the handimate said.
Jason looked at it and at the man who raised a questioning eyebrow without a word, as if he was stranger to anything happening here.
Jason shrugged and abandoned the drink he didn't taste on the counter. He walked to the back of the room, to where the red light had been. A man hidden in a large grey cloak crossed his path in the darkness, another desperate soul who needed something so badly that he had to come here, or a seller, maybe. Jason couldn't see his face and the anonymity made him shiver, maybe he should have hidden his face too. The door in front of him, partially hidden by a heavy black curtain was the same model as the one at the entrance. Jason stepped on the other side of the curtain totally covering himself with it. It was an extra precausion, it was difficult to learn how to enter this room.

  6. I'm really liking the description of the guy in the cloak. It has just the right air of mystery to it.

  7. Oooh, this is getting rather ominous and mysterious. Rather intriguing and on edge. I'm loving where this is going. The lines about the drink he didn't taste and the anonymity are perfect. Great snippet!
