WeWriWar 211: 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.

As the speed decreased he observed that they were exactly where they should be.
“I knew you would love it,” Markus said looking at him as if he could read everything on Jason's face.
“You told me to stop so long ago, I was sure we would be much further,” Jason said.
“I know how difficult to stop it is once you are driving it, so I took a chance, it was better to stop early,” Markus said.
“I think I’ll go by bike, if you still want to give it to me,” Jason said.
“Of course, I knew it all along, kid,” Markus said giving him an friendly clap on the shoulder.
“I really wasn’t sure myself,” Jason said.
“That seemed pretty obvious, now go and bring us a nice rainbow back,” Markus said getting down from the bike.

  1. So, he's finally going to embark on the actual hunt for a rainbow.

  2. Sounds like Markus knows Jason better than he knows himself.
