WeWriWar 135: 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.

Jason stood back up and carried the case to the bed. Clarissa was still hiding looking at him with only her eyes visible from under the blanket.
“I’ll get doctor Marshall,” Jason said.
“As you want,” the fat man answered with a move of his hand mimicking Jason earlier.
“Don’t go,” Clarissa muttered with a tiny voice catching his hand.
“It will be fine,” Jason said.
He stepped out of the room.
“Just stay here, I’ll be right back,” he added for the fat man.

  1. I don't blame her for not wanting to be left alone with this guy. Hope it works out well for her, though.

  2. Another snippet that makes me want to find out if she's ever going to get that rainbow!

  3. Poor child has been through a lot, and now she's scared.

  4. Hmmm, I don't know that I'd leave the fat man alone with her. Can't wait to see what happens next!

  5. I hope he'll be right back. Not sure whether it's a good idea leaving his sister with the fat man. great snippet.

  6. Please tell me he didn't just leave the money in the room with the fat man and walk out? He could just easily take the money and the rainbow and disappear, I doubt Clarissa could stop him right now. And why is he getting the doctor if this guy is from the black market? Wouldn't that raise red flags and suspicions for the doctors on how he got the rainbow?

  7. Hopefully nothing goes wrong for them!

  8. Somehow, this just doesn't seem like it was a good idea on his part...
