WeWriWar 161: 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.

“You know it’s the only way, rainbow will not fall from the sky and even with the money back it would still not be enough for something legal,” Jason said.
“If you are so sure, I have something for you,” Markus said, “follow me.”
He walked to the back of the garage followed by Jason and opened a old and heavy grey door which seemed to have been closed for at least ten years or more. It cracked when turning on its rusty hinges and the steam was blueish.
“This is exactly what you need,” Markus said pointing at something covered by a dusty blue blanket in the middle of the room. Jason wasn’t exactly sure what he meant by that.
Markus walked to the thing and pulled the blanket away before giving “the thing” a loving look. “The thing” was the only name which came to Jason’s mind to describe it.
