WeWriWar 163: 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.

Jason opened big eyes, he needed anything but that. Markus started coughing.
“I think I will take the bus,” Jason said walking slowly backward toward the door to avoid the smoke.
“It didn’t go out for five years, Gena went so mad the last time I rode it that I’m afraid to ride it again, so the oil dried a bit inside,” Markus said coming out from behind the cloud covered with black carbon particles. He pulled an handkerchief out of his pocket to wipe his face. The strong smell of burned oil was starting to tickle Jason’s throat and sticking his eyes. The bike was now purring like a well-fed cat, steam going out, almost normally.
“I’m not too sure,” Jason said.

  1. Hmm ... not sure either. I hope it'll work for him

  2. The bike is starting to sound a little more promising.

  3. He might be safer with a tricycle. Or a skateboard. Just suggetions, mind you.

  4. *Almost* normally. The keyword there being almost. I think he might be persuaded though to take it in the end.

  5. Bikes freak me out! Still can't ride one lol. Great snippet.

  6. Yikes. I think I'd take the bus, too. :-)
