WeWriWar 162: 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. Markus has a last surprise for him.

We start just where we left off last week.

What was in front of him was probably the oldest and less functional looking motorbike in all Polysky.
“If you promise to take good care of it and to bring it back with the rainbow, it’s yours,” Markus said all smiling.
“Does this thing even run?” Jason said opening incredulous eyes.
“Don’t listen to what he is saying,” Markus said caressing the front of the bike as if the question could have hurt its feelings, before turning back to Jason.
“Of course it does,” he said moving on the side and turning the contact key as to prove it.
The bike stated to shake with an incredible noise resonating in the entire building. Jason looked around wondering if the roof was not going to fall on them. A cloud of black smoke escaped from the engine with a burning smell.

  1. Often the old stuff is more reliable than new items. Also liked the name "polysky" ... perfect in regard to the two moons that have appeared a few times before.

  2. As long as it gets him there and back... And what a lovely gift from Markus the loaning of it is -- it sounds like the bike is something he cares about a great deal.

  3. I always enjoy your snippets, so full of thought. Great read.

  4. It sounds like it may not run for long. Sounds like Markus really treasures this bike too based on the fact he talked to it. He's a good guy if he's willing to loan it out then, big heart. I wonder how he thinks this bike is going to help him though in finding the rainbow.

  5. I predict that this vehicle will never pass its emissions test.

  6. It may be capable of igniting a thundercloud... LOL!
