Shiro Seijo to Kuro Bokushi

Summary by Shiro Seijo on Kuro Bokushi

On the little outskirts of a quiet town, Lawrence works as a local shepherd 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 good-natured young woman, takes on this role; However, this tedious job quickly exhausts them. That, coupled with his hidden sleepiness, means he's often lounging around church. That leaves Lawrence to take care of the church alone. While Cecelia sleeps in anticipation of her next visit, Lawrence tends 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 easy-going character excites her as she adjusts to Lawrence's overly affectionate character. How will he react, however, when the adoring and distracted saint's feelings for the withdrawn and overly protective pastor transcend friendship?
