WeWriWar 139: 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.

“Step back a little,” he said to Clarissa. “It will be really cold.”
Clarissa moved just a little bit, she wanted to see her rainbow. Jason put the blanket back on her shoulder as the doctor opened the box. The liquid Helium evaporated in the air with a white smoke, the drops hitting the ground forming little liquid bubbles before disappearing. As doctor Marshall looked in the case, his face lost all expression. Jason and Clarissa approached slowly to look in as well.
“I’m sorry,” the doctor said.
The box was empty.

  1. Sounds like a double-cross to me... :-)

  2. What? NO! Not after all that waiting she (and we) did! Can't wait to find out the reason it's empty.

  3. Called it! I hope he can find the man that cheated him -- or at least get word out about what he did so that no one buys from him again. And I'm curious to see what happens next.

  4. Oh some how I KNEW this might happen! Noes!!! Can't wait to see what will happen next.

  5. Aww, dammit! I knew it was too good to be true! I knew it! That sneaky, double crossing weasel! Grrrr, I wanna strangle that black market dealer right about now.

  6. Had a feeling this was where the scene was heading. Makes the eventual getting a hold of the rainbow that much more satisfying.
