WeWriWar 189: 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.

“Poor kid, it’s like he is collecting them,” he could hear Gena’s sorry voice in the corridor.
He closed his eyes unwilling to know how pitiful he looked like and fell asleep.

Jason woke up the next morning with a vague remembrance of the evening. He remembered the bad thoughts about death and pushed them away. Clarissa was counting on him and he couldn’t possibly bury her just yet, at least not without trying everything he could.
He walked out of his room. Markus snored loudly in the opposite side of the apartment and Jason wondered how Gena could sleep with that sound in her ears. But here again it was one of the things she had probably gotten used to by now.

  1. I don't know if one ever gets used to that sound. In my house, it's a race to see who can get to sleep first. Nice snippet! :)

  2. The poor guy probably has sleep apnea. Or a cold. Or sinus issues. As you can tell, I have sympathy with snorers. ;-)

  3. Happy New Year, Linda.

    I am glad he got past his dark thoughts, so he can move on

  4. I so admire that resolve to achieve what may appear hopeless to others. You go, Jason!!

  5. Nice slice of life excerpt! Even with all the medical problems and need to find a rainbow, people do still snore.

  6. Love that Jason refuses to give up. I sleep next to a loudly snoring man, and you do get used to it. :-)

  7. His determination is certain admirable.

  8. Try sleeping with two snoring dogs...

  9. I've never been able to get used to snoring. I envy her. Nice snippet. :)

  10. I have been fighting a cold for several days and I so feel for anyone trying to breath while sleeping or awake!
