WeWriWar 172: 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.

“It needs heat to shine, even a small amount like body temperature is enough, that’s why this part of the bike stays really cool when the bike is turned off and decrease really fast after a ride so that you can remove the moon catcher without fear of burning your hands,” Markus explained.
Jason had always wondered why bikes’ pieces were so small. They broke easily and needed to be replaced. He didn’t understand how something so small could be so important, but seeing the light coming out of the crystal he had no doubt that the moon catcher was something special.
“I’ll take good care of it,” he said.
“I trust you on that,” Markus said removing the old oil from the rest of the engine. “Let’s finish, you’ll eat and sleep here and go tomorrow morning, I need to see how you ride and I can’t do it at night.”
“Don’t count on me to make you diner,” Gena said, she was still looking passably angry.

  1. It's true that the small pieces don't always seem important at first glance, isn't it?

  2. Oh, I'm so excited for him to finally get on his way!

  3. With that kind of attitude from Gena I think I'd rather go home and come back in the morning.

  4. Love the explanation on how the bike works.

    Just a heads up-- In the last sentence: I think 'diner' should be 'dinner'. :)

  5. I'm still not sure exactly what a mooncatcher does or how, but I think it's a neat gizmo and I'd love to have one of my own.

  6. Nifty little thing ... interesting snippet

  7. I think passably might be an understatement for Gena. LOL.

    Also, quick catch, I think you forgot an N in dinner in her line at the end.
