WeWriWar 191: 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.

“Yes,” he answered as if it wasn’t already obvious.
“Let me get dressed up and we’ll see how you ride,” Markus said.
“About that…” Jason started but Markus was already too far to listen to his argument.

Markus opened the garage secret door manually leading in the back street, turning the handle. Jason turned around the bike trying to figure out how to start it, where to put his feet, how to accelerate and most of all how to brake and stop when Markus would realize this wasn't a good idea.
Markus offered him a bright smile.
“She is a sweet heart, isn’t she?” he said.
Jason didn't understand how Markus could be so sentimental over the bike as if it was a person.

  1. Clearly if Jason lived in our times, he wouldn't be a car lover.

  2. Poor Jason. Markus thinks he knows more than he does.

  3. Well, there's some things that people love more than people. I guess this bike is his thing.
