A party is held in Elfhelm, in which the inhabitants dance, firework are shot, and everyone gets drunk during the joyous occasion. Isidro and Isma are sitting with the witches and elves. Azan dances with other creatures, while brownies make sure Puck and Magnifico perform their fill of the work cleaning plates. Guts watches the cherry tree from afar, eventually joined by Serpico and Roderick. They each express their gratitude for one another in a heart-to-heart, with Guts and Serpico reflecting upon their journey, in regards to Casca and Farnese in particular, and how their lives have changed.
Meanwhile, in Casca's dreamscape, Schierke and Farnese follow a trail of flower petals to a campfire, which they discover is a fragment of Casca's memories. Farnese remarks it's a Guts she doesn't know, both sorceresses sensing the emotions Casca felt at the time: "Bittersweet yet gentle... a curious sensation."
The image then turns into a piece of broken porcelain, which the hound picks up and returns to Casca's doll. Thus, a part of the doll is repaired in accordance with the laws of Casca's dream world. They realize that to heal Casca, they have to gather the pieces of Casca's memories scattered across the wasteland and mend the doll.
Suddenly, cloak monsters appear again to impede their progress. Schierke reveals two items in her purse she brought from her own dream – a golem doll and an eye amulet – and uses them to ward off the monsters.
