WeWriWar 181: 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.

They were just beautiful colors on the dichromatic sky. He always thought that if you could touch something, it was particles, palpable like Gena’s cream spaghetti. If you couldn't touch it was waves like the sound of Clarissa’s excited voice saying good morning. He wondered if once dead they could be transformed into full waves and travel to some nice place together, maybe meet their parents again.

“You’re sleeping in your plate kid,” Markus's voice took him away from his thoughts.

Jason was about to cry, he didn’t feel that anything he could do now to save Clarissa was going to be successful. He tried to put a smile on his face and started to chew his spaghettis more efficiently. Markus and Gena didn’t need to know about his doubts.

  1. My heart aches for him in this snippet.

  2. I think you just broke my heart. He's trying so hard to be strong for Clarissa but I think he's breaking on the inside. So much emotion.
