WeWriWar 129: 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. Jason prepared the money for the rainbow in a sport bag and went to the hospital.

We start just where we left off last week.

It had always been like that, it was the only thing reminding him of the old version of her, of her before she was sick.
“Good morning,” Jason said calmly putting his bag on the table near the door and coming closer to the bed.
“Why are you so gloomy? It’s today that everything changes,” Clarissa said, obviously more optimistic than she was the night before.
“I’m not gloomy but you should keep some energy for the rest of the day.”
“Soon, I will have unlimited rainbow energy,” Clarissa said laughing.
“Nothing has unlimited energy.”
Jason would stop worrying only after the doctor confirmed that the rainbow was good enough.

  1. I hope this works for her. I'll be heartbroken for them both if it doesn't. :(
    Great snippet.

  2. Great contrast of optimistic morning person vs non-optimistic non-morning person. (A similar situation exists in this household.)

  3. What a unique concept! Enjoyed reading your snippet and look forward to more.

  4. Can't wait for that rainbow to arrive! Loving the story...another excellent excerpt. And I'm still on the edge of my chair - you're great at ending on a cliffhanger.

  5. I do hope the rainbow will be good enough. I'd be worried too until it was confirmed.

  6. "Nothing has unlimited energy." Those are some wise words there. Nice build-up to the next big event!
