1242 Let Him Go To The Inner Courtyard

    As for Gray Wolf...

    Her gaze looked towards the original direction she had come from, her lips twitched upwards into a smile, but yet not smiling. Dare ask her to clean the toilet? Gray Wolf's guts have gotten bigger.

    The old man was relieved when he saw her return to the outer courtyard.

    "You scared me to death, fortunately you are fine." The old man patted his chest and said: "Why did the Chief Guard call you in? Did anything happen?"

    "Nothing happened. He was punished by My Lord to brush the commde and he wanted me to do it for him." She smiled and asked: "Uncle, what do you do usually?

    "You are new here, so you can only do some odd chores in the outer courtyard. Let's go! I will take you to meet the steward." He motioned for Feng Jiu to follow him.

    Steward? Her eyes flickered, and then she followed him.

    The steward of the Crown Prince's residence wouldn't be an ordinary person. Therefore, she was really looking forward to it, she wanted to see what kind of a person the steward was.

    When the old man came to the front courtyard, they saw a young man who was delegating jobs to the servants in the mansion. Yes, the young man looked about twenty five or six years old. He had a noble air around him like that of an elegant noble, but the servants in the residence call him steward.

    "Steward, this is my nephew, Li Da Niu[1]." The old man stepped forward and introduced Feng Jiu: "Quickly, kneel down to the steward and thank him for giving you a chance."

    "Huh?" Feng Jiu stood there dumbfounded like a country bumpkin and looked at the man.

    "What's with the 'huh'? I asked you to kneel down in front of the steward!" The old man said.

    After hearing this, Feng Jiu shook her head and blinked her clear innocent eyes: "No, I can't. My father said that I can't just kneel to anyone. Besides, back in the country we only kneel to the dead. I've never kneeled to anyone alive before!"

    Upon hearing this, the old man nearly fainted from fright. He stared dryly and raised his hand to pat Feng Jiu's head: "You country bumpkin!" However, before he had reached Feng Jiu's head, she dodged out of the way.

    When the man saw this, he smiled and waved his hand: "It's okay, don't argue with a child."

    He turned to look at Feng Jiu and asked: "You are called Li Da Niu?" He found it funny deep down. Such a skinny lad was actually called a big bull?

    "Yes." Feng Jiu stood diligently and looked at him timidly.

    "Are you afraid of me?" The man asked with a smile, his voice soft.

    Feng Jiu shook her head and replied candidly: "I'm not afraid of you, I'm just afraid that you will chase me away. I don't want to go home to farm."

    "Hahaha, no I won't. As long as you work hard, I will not send you home to farm." The man smiled and said: "You will be called Little Plum in the residence from now on!"

    "Yes. Thank you steward." She smiled widely, her wide smile made her disguised face look dazzling.

    The man was a little surprised by what he saw and secretly wondered: The young man's expression was really dazzling, but he seemed like a simple person with no ill intentions, it would put their minds to ease to use such people.

    He asked again: "Has his work been arranged?" His gaze fell on the old man as he spoke.

    "Old slave has asked him to do some odd jobs in the outer courtyard. He is a newcomer and hasn't learned many skills. I'm afraid he will make mistakes if he is clumsy so I thought he can do some odd jobs to familiarise himself first."

    "Odd jobs?"

    The man thought for a while and said: "Send him to the inner courtyard! Let him sweep the floors in the inner courtyard, water the flowers and get rid of the weeds in the garden."

    [1] It literally means Big Bull
