WeWriWar 218: 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.

It was painful for his entire body but it seemed to be curing him from inside. As if the desert was starting to talk to him and to tell him what to do. He felt like one with the universe surrounding him. He had nothing to see, nothing to look for. The desert in his monochromatic immensity and boring yellow was bringing him to peace. He had nothing to think about anymore except his goal. As he was getting deeper and deeper in the desert or as the desert was getting deeper and deeper inside of him, he felt closer to his goal and to what he really wanted and it seemed to him like an evidence that he would get it. It was as if all those things inside of him and yelling to go out all of those years when he was a kid were finally ready to let the true him express himself.

  1. nice snippet to tell us about how he feels.

  2. Beautiful snippet. Sounds like he's finding himself -- and finding peace within himself.

    For some reason it's making me think of the song "A Horse With No Name" --
    "In the desert you can remember your name
    'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain."
