WeWriWar 175: 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

Since their parents died, they had always been here for each other. She was the only thing he had in this world and he was the only one for her too. As long as he could remember they had only been separated once, when their parents died, two years earlier.

The social services had taken Clarissa away and put her in a family while he stayed at the center, he was too old to be placed. They had said that it was better for them, that way they could both take care of their own life without having to worry about the other. It might have been a good idea but it didn’t work that way. They were not the one getting up every night when Clarissa had nightmare and cried in the middle of the night dreaming about the accident, he was. After a week, her new family brought her back saying that she needed psychological help because she had been crying and refusing to eat. They refused to let him see her and Clarissa went to the hospital, her health was getting worse and worse. Finally, the psychologist decided that maybe there was something physiological going wrong with her and that the pain in her chest was not only due to her feelings, that’s when they brought her to doctor Marshall and when she was diagnosed with a right ventricular hypertrophy.

  1. I hurt for those kids. How can people be so dense? Siblings belong together. You really know how to bring out strong emotions.

  2. The rainbow--is symbolic? I've been reading this in snippets for a long time, and always thought that the rainbow was some sort of tangible object. Now I wonder. :-)

  3. Aw, these poor kids!I hope they find some kind of happiness- and a rainbow would be nice too.

  4. This system sounds an awful lot like the childcare systems here on Earth.


  5. Loving your fall leaves on the page...totally cool. Great snippet as always.

  6. what a terrible situation they were in. interesting background story

  7. Oh what horrible timing for them. Poor kids. I'm glad they found each other again, and now I see why he's so determined to save her.
