WeWriWar 212: 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 can wait for Gena to arrive,” Jason said.
“It will take her forever, I don’t like parting so much and you don’t want to see me cry, just go,” Markus said, placing his helmet in the bike's truck.
Jason gave Markus a half hug. He was also feeling a bit nostalgic. He composed himself knowing that Markus wouldn’t like to see him cry either and resumed his position on the bike.
“Head right south, it’s the faster way,” Markus said.
Jason turned on the contact and the bike started with its usual strange noises. He waved at Markus one last time and headed right south toward the unknown of the desert.
