WeWriWar 158: 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.

“How are you going to catch my rainbow?” Clarissa asked.
“You forced me to listen to Everett Cooper all my life. I’ll ask him to train me, the first purple rainbow I see will sure be yours,” he said.
Clarissa yawned again. “When are you leaving?”
“Just after you fall asleep,” Jason said.
Clarissa held his hand tight.

  1. I'm curious as to the significance of the purple rainbow. But, it seems Clarissa is still wary about him leaving to get the rainbow. Nice excerpt!

  2. LOL. Given what he said, I kind of expected her to close her eyes and pretend to snore.

  3. Great snippet. Now if only she'll fall asleep.

  4. Hmm, I wonder why Clarissa seems worried?

  5. Nice little moment between them! I hope he does get that purple rainbow.

  6. Sweet scene. I expect her to try to stay awake so he doesn't leave, though. I don't think she wants him to go.

  7. I hope he manages to get the rainbow and has no more scams. Great snippet.

  8. I hope he doesn't get scammed again.

  9. That last sentence says it all I'd say .... lovely scene.

  10. Not sure if my comment posted or not, if it did, feel free to delete this one:

    Yep, she definitely does not want him to leave. I hope he gets back to her quickly.
