WeWriWar 167: 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.

He started to rub the bike more decidedly pretending not to notice he was the center of their discussion. If Gena won the fight, he would be able to go get his bus in no time.
“You know how fast this thing goes,” Gena said as if it was the strongest argument she could give against anyone ever wanting to ride on a motorbike.
“I know, that’s why he needs it, going to the desert by bus would take him a week and I’m not even talking about moving around once there, it’s totally impracticable without a bike,” Markus said.
“Then give him another one, this one is too dangerous,” Gena said.
“I don’t have another one worth giving, not for the desert,” Markus said.
The conversation was taking an interesting turn and Jason pretended to concentrate on cleaning without letting one word of it escape him, but looking at the bike, he couldn’t imagine that it could even run out of the room. It seemed to be about to fall apart.
