WeWriWar 173: 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.

“I thought the kid deserved nice spaghetti for his last meal in town but we can always go dine out,” Markus answered.
Gena left the room without a word more, her high heels resonating in the stairs.
“You’ll see, her spaghetti are the best in town, that’s why I married her,” Markus said winking at Jason.
“But she said…” Jason started.
“Trust me, she’ll make you some, she might be mad but she always knows how to get what she wants when she treats my stomach,” Markus said stroking his stomach which was getting prominent with age. Jason couldn't think about the last time he had eaten anything else than dry fish, it was probably before his parents' death.

  1. Ah yes, the old "the way to a man's heart is through his esophagus" routine.

  2. I hope she makes Markus pay for that spaghetti! ;-)

  3. Nice little moment, his friend is trying to be supportive.

  4. Sounds like this couple has figured out a comfortable dynamic. But poor Markus! That last line says a lot.

  5. I want to know what she wants in exchange for this dinner...

  6. You guys are so suspicious. I thought it was a light moment. Hah!

  7. Hm, I would say there is a lot more than Italian cuisine going on here..LOL!

  8. Hmm. Perhaps she does want something in return for the spaghetti, but it seemed lighthearted to me.

  9. So if he gets his spaghetti dinner, what is Gena going to worm him into doing? LOL.
