Vash the Stampede has now saved Inepril City twice from destruction. A celebration is held in his honour and he is lavished with food and fun. The next day, however, without so much as a farewell, he hops aboard the sand steamer for points unknown. Fortunately, Meryl and Milly are able to make it onboard the vessel by taking on part time jobs. While Vash takes some time out to relax, the sand steamer heads out into the night through valleys of the planet. As it does, a bright glow begins to emerge from the darkness.
