WeWriWar 114: 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.

Jason opened it: a black market seller of incredibly cheap rainbows, something Jason could afford. He folded the ad and placed it in his jeans back pocket. He read the bookmark again, to make sure to memorise it, then, placed it at the center of the table. Blue fire appeared and Jason watched it burn. No traces left, a trap opened to swallow the ashes. The plan was in motion... Almost. Jason left the bar, trying not to feel happy or relieved, there were still things needed to be done. 

Answer to last week's comments:  

Thanks for the grammar check, it totally helped with the edit.
I think 217 is just a random number.
As for the advertisement well you got it figured out now. ;)

  1. I like that he's trying not to get his hopes up. I wonder what else needs to be done? And what the final cost of this is going to be.

  2. So is that how he requests the rainbow? Can't wait to read more.

  3. Love all the twists and turns and magic going on here. Great snippet!

  4. Hmmm. A rainbow on demand. Unique concept. Good detail and action in this scene.

  5. I love reading stories with magic in them-- you're weaving a good one here!

  6. This is going to backfire somehow, I know it, I can feel it. I like the blue fire bit, an interesting add to it.
