WeWriWar 213: 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 start with chapter 4.

Several things about the desert were uncommon in Jason’s ordinary life and they were not minor changes. 
You didn’t enter the desert, the desert came to get you, was the first thought that came to Jason’s mind.
The air was yellow. Was it because of the first sun being the only one raised when he reached the desert? Or was it because of the deep yellow color of the sand? Jason couldn’t say. 
He felt absorbed by the color, no matter where he looked there was nothing else. What was supposed to be the road had been covered long ago by the sand and the only thing which allowed him not to lose track in the desert was the speed of the moon catcher helping him to go straight no matter the obstacles he had to drive around.

  1. Great imagery. Love this line: 'You didn’t enter the desert, the desert came to get you..."
    Powerful words.

  2. Agree with Karen: "You didn’t enter the desert, the desert came to get you" is an awesome line.

    Love the description, too.

  3. Great visual. I actually blinked my eyes from all that yellow. :)
