WeWriWar 174: 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, with the start of chapter 3

Markus was right, Gena’s spaghetti were the best in town but Jason wasn’t really hungry and the pasta made his inside feel funny. He hadn't eat anything that rich and oily in a long time. Dry fish was the cheapest, he could get some at the dock for almost nothing, once all the good fishes had been sold. That way, he saved money for the rainbow. But somehow, the small savings felt like a total waste now, the money was gone and he still had no rainbow.

He was worried about how Clarissa would feel the next morning when she would wake up not having him around. How would she spend her days without knowing that he would be there to hold her hand in the evening until she fell asleep? How she would bear being alone?

  1. He's such a good brother!

  2. I hope the food doesn't make him sick. And I love how he's worried about how she's going to handle him being gone.

  3. Sad insight, but what a good brother to be so concerned for her situation.

  4. He really is a good guy, worrying about her so much, and willing to do so much.
