WeWriWar 198: 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.

It was probably why the people here wanted to live up, to get reconnected to what normal ground felt like. Jason found the paradox laughable. This place was the cold step before the desert and he tried to appreciate the coldness as much as he could without letting the absence of sky pierce his heart. This place was oppressing.
“You need to wait until you reach a speed of at least 60 tours per minute to use the moon catcher,” Markus said.
“What?” Jason answered, the noise of the engine and the wind in his ears made it difficult to hear Markus’s voice.
“Look,” Markus said pointing at the quadrant in front of him “60.”
“I got it,” Jason answered.

  1. This says it all about the place "letting the absence of sky pierce his heart"

  2. Still doesn't sound like a place where I'd want to live.

  3. I have a feeling he's about to get more nature than he can handle.

  4. It sounds like a very oppressive place.

  5. I like the contrast of where he is to where he is going.

  6. Now we're catching moons. I've missed so much these last few weeks. Cool.

  7. The desert is almost starting to sound like freedom...
