WeWriWar 204: 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.

“I like it, just if I die riding, there will be nobody left to take care of Clarissa,” Jason said. 
Markus sat beside him. 
“You are a lot stronger than I was at your age kid. I would never have been able to take care of someone sick like you do. But you need to remember one thing: You only have one life and you need to do what is good for you too. It can get difficult at time but it’s always for a reason. I was given this bike at a time when I lost myself in drugs. It was either a nice bike or the drugs. I chose the drugs at first but after my first ride, everything got somehow clearer." 

To know what else Markus has to say, don't forget to come back next Sunday.

  1. This exchange nails home what you've been driving at: this bike is important and transformative.

  2. Perhaps a ride is exactly what he needs.

  3. I'm really liking Markus more and more.

  4. Although Markus' advice is sound, I wonder if Jason will take a chance? Always good to raise questions.

  5. Great advice. And very true. People can lose themselves while taking care of others.
