WeWriWar 195: 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.

Sky City was not a huge city but it was a colorful one. This part of the town was composed of residential quarters, mostly for manual workers like him and Markus. The houses only had one floor and the walls and roofs were painted in different colors giving them an artistic aspect. Some houses had drawings, you could tell that the owners were working in some artistic area, the beautiful painting were most likely to attract clients to their shops or ateliers.

Jason enjoyed living here. The neighborhood wasn’t safe but it was nice to be able to recognize everything around easily, to know where to go and where not to go, what to do and what not to do. Here he somewhat felt safe. The rest of the city was another story.

  1. Sounds like a neighborhood I'd like to live in. At least, the artistic, colorful part of it. :-)

  2. Interesting how familiarity can make a place seem safer than it really is.

  3. Lovely sounding city except for the danger in the streets.

  4. Sounds like an interesting place to live, even if "safe" is a relative term.

  5. nice descriptions - and yes, when you know a place, you feel safe, not matter whether it is or not.
