WeWriWar 152: 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.

“Hum let’s try,” Clarissa said extending her hand in which Jason put the little device.
She passed it around her skinny wrist as Jason took his out of his pocket.
“Hello Clarissa,” the dialophone said as she turned it on. She pressed the buttons around the screen typing Jason’s name.
Jason’s opened before he had time to install it properly.
“You have a call.”
Jason pressed the middle of the screen and Clarissa’s face appeared on it.
“So can you see me properly now?” he said.
