WeWriWar 127: Rainbow Catcher

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

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 flashed back to the meeting Jason had with a rainbow seller at the black market. Jason left Clarissa's room to go to work. Jason was talking to his boss about the rainbow coming the next day.

We start just where we left off last week.

He punched his left hand with his right fist. He had been working in the garage for so long that the engine oil had somewhat found its way under his skin permanently making his hands look black. Jason laughed nervously, he wouldn’t appreciate being on Markus's bad side.

Jason placed the money in his old sport bag, counting it carefully. He had kept it hidden in different parts of the house in very small amount, to make sure that everything would be safe in case of robbery. This part of town wasn’t really safe and he knew that people had been watching him with a dark eye since he started working so much.
Banks had never been an option either, it would have been troublesome to get so much money out at once.
He closed the bag and put the last part of the money in his pocket.

  1. Sounds like he needs to move to a better part of town. ;-)

  2. Great detail about his hands. And now I'm nervous about all the money he's carrying around!

  3. I hope he isn't going to get robbed!

  4. Glad to see he's so cautious but I'm still going to worry until they have the rainbow in their possession! Great snippet, tells us a lot about the character.

  5. Nice detail about people watching him since he had started working so much. Adds a great sense of danger.

  6. I smell trouble. Something is going to go wrong based on those revelations of not being able to trust where one lived.

  7. Nice snippet showing his worry ....

  8. Crafty snippet. Hope all ends well for him.
