WeWriWar 169: 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.

“Kid, I’ll give you money for the bus,” Gena interrupted him taking her purse out.
“Give him money for food,” Markus said not even bothering looking at her.
He went back to his explanation.
“First, when you leave the bike alone, even for few seconds, you remove it, it’s the only way to make sure the bike won’t get stolen. The bike will start without it, but it won’t go far if anyone tries to break into the key lock without the moon catcher. Second, you have to clean it really often. The desert sand would be the end of it, there are twenty spikes. You need to make sure they all go out properly at the slightest pressure of those corner,” Markus said pressing and letting go of the moon catcher’s corners making the spikes appear and disappear several times. “If they don’t, you’ll lose half of the power.”

  2. I love his retort to Gena. She really doesn't want him giving Jason the bike!

  3. great bike ... sounds a bit Bond'ish :-) interesting snippet!

  4. This is starting to sound like a very complicated bike. I hope he remembers all of this. Love the retort to the wife, too!
