WeWriWar 193: 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.

“I’m not sure about that,” Jason said.

“You’ll see, she is very special,” Markus added encouragingly.

Jason could have bet on it.

He sighed and climbed behind Markus as Markus started the engine. He didn’t know what he could observe from behind, he tried to fit his feet properly and to keep his hands behind his back without falling. It was an awkward position. He remembered being on his father’s bike when he was little, sitting in the front clinking to his dad’s legs. That was comfortable, he enjoyed riding.

  1. I get the impression he won't enjoy riding as much as he had as a child. BTW, "clinking to his dad’s legs" should probably be "clinging."

    1. Thanks, I'll make sure to fix this.

  2. This ride may not be how he remembered his ride with his dad. lol

  3. I think he's in for a rough ride. Nice tease, Linda.

  4. Sweet memories of his youth but is danger straight ahead? Good snippet!

  5. Hope he's able to make the ride work.

  6. I'm just tuning in to this now, so I don't know how literal the rainbow is. Hmm...

  7. I'm a little confused about the rainbow, too. Maybe give us a little more background? :D

  8. It's nice that Jason wants to please her.

  9. HIs nice memories are a good contrast to the present, which I assume is filled with danger.

  10. Poor Jason. Could he get any less enthused about the bike?

  11. I'd say this ride won't be as comfortable ....

  12. He's having a hard time getting comfortable this time, it would seem, but I like the backstory of him and his dad.
