WeWriWar 165: 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.

Markus threw him a towel. He didn’t have much choice now but to help with cleaning the bike. Markus wouldn’t let go, he removed the black carbon oil ashes from the visible parts of the bike while Markus grabbed his tools to look at the engine more closely.
“I knew you started it again! When will you throw this thing away?” Gena yelled from the door.
She was wearing leather black trousers with a red shirt, her long blond hair pulled up in a pony tail and she seemed passably angry.
“I’m giving it to the kid, he is going to the desert,” Markus said smiling and hoping that a smile would smooth his wife’s temper.

  1. You've been getting into some good action scenes lately. I like that. What I don't like -- forgive me for pointing it out -- is 'throw in the towel.' It's rather a cliche.

  2. But I think he literally threw Jason a towel to start cleaning up the bike in this case, Ed. ;-)

  3. I think Gena will be glad to see the bike gone -- something tells me she never liked it.

  4. The pursuit of a rainbow. I thought the story was aa fantasy, but now I think it's a lesson about life. Chasing rainbows... :-)

  5. Great imagery.I hope the bike is reliable.

  6. Hope this thing runs so he can get that rainbow!

  7. I like Teresa's comment ... i reckons she's onto something. Nice snippet today!

  8. Well, if giving it away counts as getting rid of it, I think that might appease the angry wife a little. I love the touch of the smile he gave her, such a natural thing guys do at those times.
