WeWriWar 157: 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. But it was a scam and Jason prepares to go get the rainbow himself in the desert.

We start just where we left off last week.

"Markus doesn't like the robots," Clarissa said.
"Maybe.." Jason answered looking toward the window but bringing back his attention to Clarissa when he realized he couldn't see the sky.
“So what do you want to do?” Clarissa asked.
“I’m not sure, maybe being a doctor like doctor Marshall,” he said.
“But you cannot do that if you don’t have money to study,” Clarissa said.
“I’ll work and get the money, and when you feel better I’ll make you work like a slave too,” Jason said laughing trying to make the conversation a bit lighter. He didn’t like it when Clarissa was trying to worry about the cost of her disease.

  1. I like that Clarissa seems to be more aware of things than I thought she was.

  2. Jason is so sweet! He's willing to do anything to make Clarissa better. :)

  3. I am really warming to your characters, Linda. They are showing a depth that makes them easy to identify with and invest in.

  7. I am wondering about this rainbow and glad he is trying to distract her from worry about the cost of her illness. A very touching scene!

  8. I could have sworn you weren't an American, but worrying about the cost of medical care tends to be such a uniquely American obsession.

  9. This feels like a very important moment. It's captured very well.

  10. He's such a great brother, putting her first.

  11. She really seems to care about him, to the point where I feel like she's trying to put him above herself even in her condition. She's got a big heart.

  12. Jason is so kind, you can really feel how much they care about each other. Great snippet.
