WeWriWar 202: 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.

Markus stopped on the side of the road.
“I bet you never reached the border of the city that fast,” he said.
Jason climbed down the bike and almost fell taking a few steps on cotton-like legs. Markus laughed again.
“Pretty impressive, hein, the moon catcher. It can take you so far in thoughts that you need not to lose yourself,” Markus said.
“I’ll never be able to drive this bike, and even if I do, I’ll never use the moon catcher,” Jason said still not secure on his feet.
“Hahaha, I see your confidence didn’t rise with the speed,” Markus said.

  1. After the speed, no wonder he's a bit dodgy on his feet. Nice snippet.

  2. His confidence took a hit. :-) Interesting world-building, Linda. :-)

  3. Interesting dynamic between these characters.

  4. I'm not exactly sure how the moon catcher operates, but it sure does move fast.

  5. I guess he's intoxicated by the speed. That's fast.

  6. I think the speed had the opposite effect on his confidence.
