WeWriWar 178: 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.

The waiting list for a free rainbow was so long and purple rainbows so rare that doctor Marshall had made it clear to him from the start: Clarissa had really few chances to make it. She was supposed to have only few month back then but she proved to be more resistant than expected. She was doing her relaxation exercise a lot more than necessary to make sure her heart would be waiting as long as it needed. And she was forcing Jason to do them too. She had read somewhere that right ventricular hypertrophy was common in the same family and said that it was hard enough to get one purple rainbow she didn’t want to think about getting two. So Jason had been doing the exercises as well.

But he was thinking that now she would have to do them alone and hoped that the stress of having him gone wasn’t going to accelerate the degradation of her heart. When Clarissa had started coughing blood few weeks ago, doctor Marshall had said that she didn’t have much time left.

  1. Oh, I'm starting to think that this might be a sad story! I really wonder what the rainbow is, Linda. :-)

  2. She's one strong girl. I gotta agree with Teresa though, I get a bad feeling this won't have a happily ever after ending.

  3. Hurry! Hurry! Get to the dessert quick!

  4. I love Dr. Marshall's honesty. (And I love that Clarissa mad Jason do the relaxation exercises too.)
