Synopsis:
Cerebus is drugged by two thieves who believe he knows the way to the fabled Black Sun Temple and its treasures. So, they enlist Jaka the dancer to seduce him and trick Cerebus into helping them. Then plan seems to be working until Jaka's conscience emerges and she confesses to the whole plan. A smitten Cerebus volunteers to take her with him and they can keep the treasure to themselves. Later, though, the drugs wear off and Cerebus' memory of the events vanishes. Unfortunately, his memory of Jaka vanishes, as well, and he snubs her when she tries to join him for the planned adventure.
