Almanzo is totally in love with Laura and asks for her hand in marriage. Charles disapproves of the marriage and tells Almanzo to wait two years till Laura is eighteen. Almanzo doesn't want to wait and forces Laura to choose between him and her father. When she chooses to respect her Pa's wishes, Almanzo leaves town and breaks Laura's heart. Mrs. Oleson hires Percival Dalton to train Nellie in the restaurant business. Though trying to keep his temper in check, Nellie goes too far and Percival tells her off. Strangely enough, Nellie fall in-love with him. Adam learns that his father has died and he won't be able to build a new blind school in Walnut Grove. Trying to take her mind off of Almanzo, Laura helps Mary and Adam set-up the new blind school in Sleepy Eye...where she encounters Almanzo.
