WeWriWar 145: 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.

“I don’t know, the desert is really far.”
“So you will only have old uncle Markus to play with,” Markus said. “I’ll come here every day.”
“Thanks!” Jason said.
“You are not so old, my hair says I’m older than you.”
With her disease, Clarissa’s hair had turned completely white. Markus rushed them.
“Oh yes, you are at least one hundred years old, almost a mummy,” he said.

  1. Funny the way we judge one another--assess age. The last line made me smile. It was a bit tongue-in-cheek? :-)

  2. Fun little snippet...if only hair color was truly a good way to estimate age. :-)

  3. I'm glad Marcus is there for her and is trying to lighten the mood. Nice snippet!

  4. Aww. Markus is cute with her.

  5. This passage has a different flavour from most others in this story, being more about her support group than the hunt from the rainbow.

    FYI, I don't think you signed up for WeWriWa this week, in case you're wondering why you don't get as many hits as usual.

  6. I'm glad he isn't leaving her alone. Great snippet.

  7. Always interesting to watch this story unfold and how the characters relate to each other. Great snippet!

  8. I liked this. The hair color detail made the snippet.

  9. Great snippet, funny yet tender banter. Can't wait for more!

  10. cute exchange about white hair and age

  11. I got a little confused on who was speaking at first but maybe that's because I'm tired. Cute snippet though, Markus is definitely sweet. Love the mummy joke.
