WeWriWar 201: 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.

He knew that if they crashed, at this speed they would sure die, but there was nothing he could do about it, he didn’t have to fight anymore and the world suddenly felt peaceful.
“Don’t sleep kid,” Markus’s voice seemed coming from very far away.
Jason opened his eyes, Markus was yelling in the wind and laughing, probably at his reaction.
“Are you ok?” Markus asked.
Jason didn’t answer, he would never get used to that bike but he understood why Markus loved it so much. It was the sensation of freedom, nothing could ever match that.
Markus turned off the moon catcher and the bike’s velocity decrease slowly. When they reached less than 60 tours per minute, the protections went back hiding to their original position.

  1. You can tell how exhausted he is. The bike is an interesting piece of machinery.

  2. Have you ridden and enjoyed cycles yourself?

  3. i wonder whether this "wonder-bike" would protect him during a crash as well. Liked today's description.

  4. Cool bike, but I'll leave it to them to ride. It sounds like fun, but no. :) :)
