WeWriWar 197: 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.

Rich people lived there, any of them could probably buy a rainbow for Clarissa easily but they didn’t care. They could have offered him a job but they refused many times. Even for cleaning the floor or the windows he wasn’t good enough for them. For him it was a limited world where everything looked the same and without any space for creation. He didn’t know what was hiding inside the buildings and didn’t want to know. That was a mystery so attractive to the people in the small wooden houses but it was repulsive to him. He looked up at the sky but didn’t find it. The buildings were so high that the light and the warm of the two suns couldn’t reach the ground.

  1. Interesting scene ... shows the the "other side" very well.

  2. I love how he doesn't want to know about them -- a touch of bitterness, perhaps?

  3. Intriguing snippet, with noticeable traces of social commentary about our own economic system.
