Summary by Shiro Seijo on Kuro Bokushi
On the small outskirts of a sleepy town, Lawrence works as a local pastor for the townsfolk. In case of need, he is responsible for leading people to the church to visit the "saint", a symbol of good manners, who attends to the struggles of each parishioner and gives him sincere advice. Cecelia, a nice young woman, takes on this task; However, this tedious job quickly exhausts them. That, coupled with his concealed sleepiness, means he often hangs around church. As a result, Lawrence has to take care of the church alone. While Cecelia sleeps in anticipation of her next visit, Lawrence attends to her needs and attends to the many responsibilities of the church.
Gradually, they begin to develop a pleasant and trusting friendship with each other. Lawrence's acceptance of Cecelia's careless nature excites her as Cecelia adjusts to Lawrence's overly protective nature. How will he respond, however, when the adoring, absent-minded Saint's feelings for the ponderous, overprotective Shepherd grow beyond friendship?
