CHAPTER IV: I DIDN'T MEEN TO...
Back in the saloon, Vash is devastated by his actions. The people in the bar room start to back away as far from Vash as they can without actually leaving the saloon. Vash falls on his knees an begins to cry and then Millie and Meryl enter the saloon.
"HELLO EVERYONE!", said Millie not realizing that there was one dead body and a half dead guy laying on the floor.
"Shut up Millie!", said Meryl. After this was said, Millie then realized Vash was bleeding from his shoulder and he was really depressed over what he had done.
"Why", Vash whispered as he cried some more. "Why did he have to die."
"But Golden Heel is still alive... At least I think!", said one of the people in the crowd of the saloon.
"Doesn't matter, the punch I gave him fractured his skull and impacted his brain..."Vash said as he was crying, "He'll be a vegetable for the rest of his life."
Vash picked up Golden Heel and walked out of the bar but making sure that his head didn't bump against any thing. He walked down the street toward the hospital. People started to whisper at the fact that he was walking down the street with a seemingly dead body in his arms.
"I KNEW HE WASN'T TO BE TRUSTED, I KNEW IT!", said one of the men that was walking down the street. Vash only began to feel more depressed.
"Maybe I can't be trusted maybe I am a menace to society. I'm putting peoples' lives in danger and this is no good." ,thought Vash as kept walking and crying. "More and more bounty hunters are going to come after me and more and people will die!" Just then Vash turned the corner leading to the hospital but in front of the hospital was Wolfwood, Nicholas D. Wolfwood, the Priest.
"VASH, HEY VASH IS THAT YOU!?", yelled Wolfwood from the distance.
Vash continued to walk toward the hospital not replying to Wolfwood. The path the Vash was walking down was more like an alley-way. People in the upstairs apartments above the alley-way opened their windows only to see Vash The Stampede walking down alley with a half-dead man in his arms.
"Vash IS a killer!", said one woman from her window.
"STAY AWAY FROM THE WINDOW Jym!", said another woman to her child as she began to close to window.
Vash was now no more than three feet away from Wolfwood. The wind began to blow but not fiercely, just enough to kick up some dust.
"Hey Vash, what's going on?", said Wolfwood who was trying to get some answers out of Vash but he just walked right by Wolfwood and into the hospital.
One Hour Later...
Vash walked out of the hospital and put his shades on. The wound on his shoulder was now all patched up thanks to the beautiful nurses. He walked back to the saloon to see that Silver Knuckles' body was wrapped in cloth and his blood was wiped up off the floor.
"We cleaned up for you Vash.", said Millie, but Vash ignored her as if she wasn't even there.
"Vash aren't you even going thank Millie for cleaning up the "mess" you made?", said Meryl.
"I don't have time to deal with you!", Vash said in a totally depressed and irritated tone.
"WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM VASH!?", said Wolfwood as he entered the saloon.
"SHUT UP!", yelled Vash as he picked up the overly wrapped up body , "I DON'T NEED YOU ACTING LIKE YOU CARE!"
"What is his problem ?" Meryl thought to herself.
Vash left the saloon with the body of Silver Knuckles over his right shoulder. All Millie, Meryl, and Wolfwood could do is watch as Vash walked off into the desert with his unclaimed advisari hanging over his shoulder. Millie buried her face in Wolfwood's chest and and began to cry. In a way, Wolfwood knows how Vash feels. The search for peace, lost in the a never-ending gun battle in which someone always seems to get hurt or get killed in.
THIRTY MINUTES LATER OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT, VASH HAS JUST BURIED THE BODY...
"Rest in peace, but before you are put to rest, I would like to say that i am sorry for my actions i am sorry that you had to die like that. The fact is your death could have been avoided entirely, is was that I was caught up in the moment... I DIDN'T MEEN TO DO IT!", said Vash as he began to break down and cry. "If only I was thinking strait. Sometimes I wonder if being a hunter of Love & Peace is worth it... wait a minute, I just shot down all my friends. I beginning to think i don't know who I am anymore!"
Vash was in dire pain, he didn't know right from wrong now, but he felt relieved that the death toll wasn't a total of two. However he also felt as if he is mass murderer waiting for a new person to kill. He began to walk into the desert when he saw a maroon colored ship. It was none other than Spike Speigal. Fortunately, Spike or even the rest of the Bebop crew didn't have a positive I.D. on Vash. They knew why he was wanted but they didn't know what he looked like. Spike was fling by so fast that he didn't even see a deeply depressed man walking through the desert. Vash thought odd of the maroon colored ship because the closest thing to the ship is the SandSteamer.
"Well there's no turning back now! Gotta keep movin'! Gotta keep seachin' for LOVE & PEACE",Vash thought.
BACK AT THE SALOON, WOLFWOOD, MERYL, AND MILLIE ARE SITTING TOGETHER AT A TABLE...
"I feel really bad for Vash", said Millie in a very depressed state of mind.
"Yeah, I know what you mean. Vash didn't mean to kill those two Bounty Hunters, it just... well uh, happened I guess.", said Wolfwood, trying to be as supportive as possible but still failing miserably.
"Well, the more things like this keep happening, the more the boss is going to lower our pay.", said Meryl in a very annoyed tone of voice.
"HOW COULD YOU THINK OF MONEY AT A TIME LIKE THIS!?", yelled Millie.
"I didn't mean to-", said Meryl in a very sorry and depressed way.
"Yeah we know!" interrupted Wolfwood.
"Hey, do you think we should go after Vash?", said Meryl.
"Yes, but not just yet,", said Wolfwood, "he needs time to recollect on things. I'm going to find us a hotel."
"So when are going to look for Vash?", Millie said inquisitively.
"Tomorrow.", said Wolfwood.
"Do you even know where he's going?", said Meryl.
"Actually... I do,", Wolfwood said in a very cool way, "He's going to Inepril City."

Wolfwood, Millie, Merly, were leaving the saloon when Gene entered.
"ATTENTION EVERYONE, ATTENTION EVERYONE!", Gene yelled to get everyone's attention, "I AM LOOKING FOR A MAN NAMED VASH THE STAMPEDE. DOES ANY HERE KNOW HIM, KNOWS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HIM, OR KNOWS WHERE HE IS?"
"Oh he was here today,", one of the men in the saloon spoke out, "He killed one of the two bounty hunters that were after him today."
"What happened to the second bounty hunter?", asked Gene.
"Well he's in the hospital. There saying that he's gonna be a vacant mind for the rest of his life.", another man in the saloon said.
"He's a killer!", an old man said.
"Yeah, and he should be killed!", another man said.
"HE IS NOT A KILLER! HE- ", Millie blurted out. However, she was soon silenced when Wolfwood and Merly covered her mouth with their hands. Gene walked over to the three.
"Do you know him?", Gene asked as he look at them suspiciously.
"No we do not!", Meryl said obnoxiously.
"We hate that killer!", Wolfwood said reluctantly.
"Then why did your Beautiful friend here, defend him.", Gene asked, but was distracted because he was hitting on Millie. Millie started to blush and giggle while Wolfwood began to feel jealous.
"Well, uh... , she's attracted to him!, uh yeah... attracted.", Wolfwood butted in to stop the red – haired guy from getting to close to Millie.
"Oh, he must cute then.", Gene replied as if he was listening, although he wasn't.
"Well, we best be on our way!", Meryl said, trying to get out of the ockward situation.
"OK... but I'll be keeping an eye on you.", Gene said very seriously.
