WeWriWar 143: 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.

“Tell him,” Clarissa interrupted the conversation, “tell him, Everett Cooper will come soon to give me my rainbow.”
Jason sight looking at his sister, wondering if Clarissa really didn’t understand the situation or if she was acting up on purpose to cheer him up.
“Tell him,” she insisted.
“He didn’t answer your letters so I think I’ll have to go ask him directly,” Jason said.
“Yes” Clarissa exclaimed. “See!” she added for Markus with a look saying What did I tell you?
“You are not serious, right?” Markus asked looking at Jason.

  1. The whole situation is dire. I do hope they'll find a way to get that rainbow for her.

  2. I think maybe Jason might be serious. Can't wait to find out!

  3. Answered whose letters? That part confused me.

  4. I hope Clarissa's optimistic outlook is the right one! I want her to get her rainbow...

  5. I'm wondering if Cooper really will arrive with the rainbow. Maybe Clarissa knows something no one else does.

  6. Oh, my heart just breaks for them! Very touching snippet.

  7. Poor girl. I guess you have to think positive about everything in her situation. Sorry I'm late. Great snippet.

  8. Poor girl. I'm not sure if she's trying to cheer him up or if she's become delirious myself. I almost half to think it's the latter. Or maybe she knows something we don't.
