WeWriWar 196: 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.

The buildings were not made of wood and stones anymore they were huge building made of glass and touching the sky. It was the reason why the city had been called Sky City. Nowhere in Polysky there were building going so high. As Markus drove between the cars in the huge avenues between the Sky buildings, Jason felt the coldness of the glass. It was a blue city, cold ice blue building all around. People were said to be happier here, people back in their small house were dreaming about living up somewhere up near the clouds. The closer to the sky the happier you felt. But Jason was in total disagreement.

  1. Even though Jason is searching for a rainbow, he seems like a creature of the earth, not the sky.

  2. I love his introspection, Linda. Not all that shimmers is bright.

  3. Fascinating snippet of a world unlike ours. Thanks, Linda.

  4. Great descriptions in this snippet!

  5. Great imagery. People aren't so happy in their glass houses. Interesting.

  6. The city sounds beautiful, but a bit overwhelming and impersonal.
