This issue starts with Witterquick on top of a mountain, with no recollection of how he got there. Suddenly a beautiful red headed woman, introducing herself as Sirena, appears holding the Star of Tisandra telling Witterquick that she has been imprisoned by a demon and needs his help. Suddenly the demon attacks and Witterquick wakes up, it was all a dream.
Witterquick decided to quest for the jewel in order to free Sirena from the demon. At the same moment the Darkling Lord Cindarr has the same experience, and he too goes in search of the jewel.
The two make their way to a mountain pass, to a tourist attraction known as The Bronze Warrior, and encounter the warlord Master Kavor. Kavor has been extorting food and goods from the local villagers offering protection in return. The two fight an in the aftermath Kavor attacks forcing the pair work together to escape. As Witterquick recovers Sirena makes contact with him again, through his dreams, telling him how go get to her. As Witterquick makes his way he is attacked by a Cave Beast before he discovers Cindarr about to grab the jewel just as one of Kavor’s men attack. Thinking quickly Witterquick grabs the Star of Tisandra and makes off.
Cindarr follows only to be attacked by magical creatures summoned by Sirena. Now Witterquick has the jewel she has no need for the Darkling Lord. Meanwhile Witterquick fights with the demon from his dream. The demon announces that Sirena is no lady in distress but a witch whom he has been guarding for thousands of years. Just as Witterquick is about the break the seal to her prison Cindarr gabs him, screaming that Sirena is bad. As they tussle the jewel is dropped and unlocks her prison.
As Sirena emerges from the prison her demon form becomes apparent, and the Darkling Lord and Spectral Knight combine their power staffs to form lightening-destruction. Their power collapses the door to Sirena’s prison, as well as causing tremors for thousands of miles.
As the two apologise the demon Witterquick fought earlier introduces himself as the Guardian of Dreams and he explains the back story to the pair. He thanks the friends for their help, to which Cindarr and Witterquick laugh. Walking off in separate directions they inform the Guardian that the friendship is just a dream.
