WeWriWar 130: 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.

“I just mean in comparison with now.”
Clarissa coughed her hand in front of her mouth.
“See what I told you, you need to stay quiet, at least for the moment.”
He helped her back on her pillow and went to get a towel in the bathroom.
Clarissa was trying to hide her hand full of blood. He took it from under the blanket and wiped it with the towel.
“You knew all along,” Clarissa said, pouting.
“Doctor Marshall always tells me everything,” Jason said.

  1. I think he needs to hurry with the rainbow. Her disease seems to be tuberculosis or something similar, right?

  2. Poor Clarissa, she needs that purple rainbow STAT. Very effective snippet!

  3. She's sicker than I thought. No wonder Jason is worried.

  4. What is it with people always trying to hide how weak/ill they are? Are we all too proud? *sighs* Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. I love how caring he is with his sister, and I like how she tries not to make him worry by hiding how she really feeling. Quite a loving brother and sister bond.

  6. She doesn't sound well at all. Hope he can help her.

  7. I really like that moment between them, but I hope she gets better soon!

  8. The doctor sounds like a pain in the butt, but a reliable person. Still looking forward to that rainbow.

  9. Sweet scene. I love the way he cares for her -- and knows how much she's trying to hide her illness.
