WeWriWar 148: 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.

We start just where we left off last week.

“Everett Cooper will not bring you a rainbow,” Jason said clenching at the curtains, avoiding to look at her.
“I know he won’t, do you think I’m that stupid?”
Jason turned around to face her.
“So why would you keep on telling that he would?”
“Because I know that only a miracle would bring me a rainbow and it is the only reasonable miracle I can think of. He is pretty much of an idiot for not having brought me a rainbow already. What so good in keeping me waiting?” Clarissa said.

  1. Siblings are full of surprises. Great snippet.

  2. He certainly wasn't expecting her to say that!

  3. Sounds logical to me...interesting snippet.

  4. I think Jason was surprised his sister already knew the truth. I'm glad he's found out that she knows.

  5. Can't wait to see what happens next. Great snippet!

  6. She's surprising him left and right in this conversation. :) :)

  7. I'm not really sure where's she's coming from, but her contradictions are intriguing.

  8. Whoever said miracles have to be likely or logical? That's what makes them miracles! :-)

  9. Haha! He didn't see that reply coming from her. Smart answer, now I understand why she's been saying that. Almost shows that she's able to joke a little, even in her dire situation, speaks of character. Nicely done.
