WeWriWar 133: 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. The rainbow seller arrived for the delivery.

We start just where we left off last week.

“You are early,” Jason said.
“I had a hole in my schedule, you have the money?” he said again, wiping his sweaty forehead with his red tie.

Once again he looked as if he had been running ten miles under both sun before arriving.
“It’s on the table,” Jason said with a gesture of the hand inviting the fat man to look at it.
The fat man sat at the table and opened the bag smiling, he started counting.
Jason took the rainbow cold box.
“This is heavy and brand new,” he said checking the temperature.

  1. Ohhh, I am intrigued. The rainbow is cold--and temperature sensitive? Good snippet, Linda!

  2. I love the way the exchange is going down. Really looking forward to the next installment!

  3. Interesting snippet. I am intrigued to find out more about the rainbow.

  4. So far, so good, although I am wondering why the fat man seems so rushed. That can't be a good sign! Fascinating story, another great snippet.

  5. It's brand new. That should be good, but is this buy a legit one. I hope so for his sister's sake. :)

  6. So the rainbow has to be cold. I hope it isn't ruined.

  7. I love the detail about transporting the rainbow. By taking seriously something so far-out, you've created a fascinating story world

  8. I am still very interested to see where this is going. I'm still feeling my way through the mythology here, but it becomes slightly clearer with each snippet. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Still enjoying this story!

  10. "wiping his sweaty forehead with his red tie" .... ewww .... story's coming along nicely ... i'm still waiting for the twist here.

  11. Ah.... we're about to see the rainbow at last! You've done a great job of building anticipation.

  12. I'm totally intrigued with the idea that Jason could buy a rainbow--and how it's packaged. :-)
