The first thing you noticed after cresting a dune and looking down on Kashang Oasis were the twisting trees, a whole interlocking grove of them that rings the pleasant town. The buildings visible through the trees are all colored in bright blues and reds and yellows, garrish but vibrant against the desert landscape like colored sands.
After you helped bring the Lucky Dragon into port and locked it down, Captain Yun gave all of you a few words of wisdom, don't go out late at night, don't put all your koku in your belt pouch, always haggle for everything and make sure you try the food at Lessa's. He paid each of the guards a third their wages for the trip, which is pitiful compared to what you got for your jewelry, but the most legitimate money Dash has ever held.
Hornet, Iwao, Ren, Sheng-Li and Hanae headed off to grab rooms at a good inn and then his the bath house. Sheng-Li offered a free meal to you and Dash at Chu Nu's a gambling house where he plans on spending most of his time (and money). Captain Yun went with Jyuu off to the bazaar to set about selling some goods, dropping off some freight and possibly buying some for sale at the next stop.
That leaves Dash, Canlid, Mew Mew, Boot and Min with you. Min says with a smile, "Isn't this great? This whole place is just amazing! And guess what? I've been here before! Back when I was maybe four, I think, with my mom and dad. They have a great bazaar, lots of pretty clothes, and music and good food and a huge water fountain in the center of town! Let's go! Let's Go!" She takes off running and Canlid follows. Mew Mew and Boot walk near each other, but not holding hands or touching. You can tell Boot wants to, but Mew Mew is busy gawking, she's not picking up his signals.
Of course Dash wants to hold your hand or kiss you, but the crew just left, so he throws a best buddy arm around you and you're walking behind the train of the Clay Street Bunch towards the fountain.
