WeWriWar 141: 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.

Finding him to get his money back was not something Jason could try if he wanted to stay alive a bit longer. Trying again to gather the money would take him two more years and getting enough money for a legal rainbow even more. Clarissa couldn’t wait that long. This time the situation was really desperate. The fat man hadn’t just stolen his money, he had stolen all his hopes. He should have known this would happen. No, he had known all along but still held foolish hopes. He put his head in his hands and cried his heart out.

  1. Things look pretty black right now. Clearly something has to happen to bring hope back to the situation. I wonder what it'll be?

  2. Everyone needs hopes ... even if they're foolish. Nice snippet.

  3. I feel sorry for him -- he tried so hard.

  4. Poor Jason, he tried so hard! Can't wait to find out what happens next. I don't suppose a rainbow obligingly fall from the sky to cure our girl?

  5. Poor guy... my heart goes out to him. Great snippet!

  6. Oh I know the feeling... Poor guy. I hope he finds a light to pierce the dark despair. I still think it was a foolish move to leave the guy with the money in the room with just Clarissa. That was asking for something like this to happen.
