WeWriWar 190: 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.

Hunger pushed him to look in the fridge, he didn’t want to be a bad guest but decided that finishing his spaghettis left over from last night wasn’t too rude. He put them in the microwave and sat at the kitchen table eating, waiting for Markus to get up. He didn’t know how he would ride that old thing. First, he had never ridden a motorbike before, except when someone else was driving. Second, this thing was probably not running anyway, no matter how many moon catchers were inside and how much light was going out of them. Hopelessness stroke in and Jason considered leaving a note behind and going directly to the bus.
“You’re already up kid?” Markus’s voice made him jump out of his thoughts. It was too late to escape for the bus.

  1. Jason clearly cares what Marcus thinks of him, or he'd bugger off to the bus despite being seen leaving.

  2. It's not a good sign that he's feeling hopeless and defeated before he even starts out.

  3. Caught before he could leave...poor guy, though, I get the feeling he's right where he needs to be.
