When he woke the next day he and his sheep began walking toward a town where he was planning on selling some wool to a merchant he had met the prior year. He was very interested in her daughter and had spent a lot of time thinking about when this day would come and he would get to see her again. We learn that he was in a seminary training to be a priest but ...
