WeWriWar 216: 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.

You could see old woman washing their clothes at the fountain, people using the water to wet the road so that it didn’t become sticky by melting under the suns. People taking care of flowers, people everywhere were using water for their daily purposes. The water was everywhere and he had never been thirsty. He realized how things some people took for granted could be extremely precious for others. He would have gladly treasured every drops of water that were wasted in the city. He would have liked to use it to create something green and blue here in the middle of the immense yellow desert.
Another thing that struck him as he pursued his course through the desert was the absence of wind. Of course the speed of the bike was making the air move around him and giving him the impression that he was moving in a hot and palpable wind but the effect was only created by his own speed.
