WeWriWar 214: 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 and continue with chapter 4.

He already asked himself how he would have lived in the desert without the bike and he had just barely entered it.
The sand was yellow. Even the sky seemed yellow. It was as if the yellow wanted to enter him every time he breathed. He had to stop to cover his mouth and nose with a cloth.
The yellow was burning. The first sun bite his skin through his jumper. He wished to remove it but from the blurry memory he had about last night dinner and Gena's explanation, he knew better.

  1. It's like the yellow wishes to devour him. Great scene.

  2. Speaking as a desert dweller, the desert can be a very inhospitable place!

  3. The yellow is trying to overwhelm him. Like Ed said, the desert can be inhospitable.

  4. You've had some awesome descriptions the last couple of weeks!
