WeWriWar 134: 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.

“Of course, it's full,” the fat man said, looking at Jason as if he was a disturbing fly.
Jason reached for the handle.
“Don’t open it,” the fat man yelled in a voice way too loud inside a sick child room.
Jason looked at him suspiciously, the quality of the cold case almost made him forget who he was dealing with, he wondered what the man wanted to hide and was more than ever eager to open the case.
The fat man composed himself.
“It’s liquid Helium in there, it would melt at air contact, you don’t want to damage the rainbow, or do you?” he said with a caressing voice.

  6. I hope the rainbow is the real deal.

  7. So how do they get the rainbow out, one wonders? Fascinating excerpt as always!

  8. I don't trust him. Sounds like a stalling tactic so he can get away with the money before Jason finds out he's been cheated.

  9. Hmmm. He's not making it easy to trust him, is he?
