WeWriWar 188: 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.

"And there is the call of the desert," Gena said. "When the desert becomes so yellow to you that it is calling for you to come to it. Never never go alone in the desert at night, never go alone in the desert on foot."
Markus took her hand. She looked suddenly frighten and Jason wondered how the desert made of sand could be calling people and if that wasn't some superstition from the desert people's folklore.
“I guess you should go to bed now, we’ll start early tomorrow morning,” Markus said.
Gena stood up to show him the way to the guest room. He lied on the bed all dressed up.

  1. Interesting setting. I like his concern.

  2. Ooh, I find what she had to say very ominous and intriguing! Can't wait to find out more once he gets to the desert. Happy New Year!

  3. In the desert where I live, it's daytime that's dangerous. You've got me wondering what's so different about this desert.
