WeWriWar 168: 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.

“Look here kid,” Markus said.
He had decided to avoid Gena until the business was done. Jason would take the bike, there was no way around it. He had removed the cover of the engine and was holding two pieces in his dark hands. The first one was looking like a moon croissant with little holes in it. As Markus pressed on the corner spikes came out suddenly with a clicking noise.
“This piece is really important kid. It’s called the moon catcher and it’s really rare, not made any more, at least I’ve never seen one like that anywhere in my life and trust me I have seen a lot of bikes, now two things about it. First...” Markus started.
