Chapter 1387 A guarding task
How could she recognize her after all these years? What’s more, her face was slightly altered. Only a fraction of her original appearance could be seen from her glabella.
In addition, her mother might never have thought that she would come here to the Pill Sun Sect to look for her!
However, it didn’t matter. She would just hang around here. There would be a chance to see her mother sooner or later.
Before dawn the next day, she was woken up. As instructed by the voice coming out from the letter, she went to the administrative office at the third level peak. By the time she arrived, there were already two other people wearing the same blue errand boy’s uniform like her.
“Good morning, Steward Qian.” She greeted him with a smile.
The steward glanced at her and replied cynically, “Hmm, stand up!”
She stood next to the two men. Not long after, ten more people came one after another. After everyone arrived, Steward Qian talked a lot, explaining about things and what to pay attention to.
“All right, the others, start working! The newcomer who arrived yesterday, what’s your name again, Feng something?” Steward Qian pointed to Feng Jiu.
“Feng Jiu.” She stepped forward.
“Right, Feng Jiu. Come with me. I’ll tell you what you’re going to do from now on.” With that, he turned around with his hands clasped behind his back.
Seeing this, Feng Jiu followed.
“All the new workers have to start from the lowest level. Luo Heng introduced you to come work here. He also asked me to take care of you. So, I’ll arrange some easy jobs for you.”
Feng Jiu smiled when she heard this. “Thank you so much for your care, Steward Qian.”
“Our Third Sun Peak’s back mountain is surrounded by medicinal plant fields which are taken care of by dedicated errand boys. From the fourth peak onwards, the disciples gathered by the Third Sun Patriarch live and refine medicine, while at the seventh peak, the Third Sun Peak’s spirit herbs are stored and there’s a dedicated person to take care of them.”
Feng Jiu’s eyes brightened at his words. Would they ask her to send the spirit herbs? However, his following words told her that she really thought too much.
“Look, that’s the medicinal plant field over there. In that field, the commonly used Red Tongue Grass is planted. It’s naturally fragrant and attracts snakes to steal. What you have to do is to guard here to prevent snakes from eating it.”
Feng Jiu was stupefied and asked, “Are there still snakes in this mountain?”
Steward Qian glanced at Feng Jiu. “I told you to keep watch, so just do it. Don’t talk too much. Just drive away the snakes as you are told.”
Feng Jiu could only nod. “Yes, I know.”
“You are the only one to guard this large area. Pay more attention. Go to the administrative office to find me if you need anything.”
After that, Steward Qian flicked his sleeves and was about to turn around and leave. However, he saw a figure coming his way. Steward Qian, who was arrogant just now, had a 360 degree change in his attitude. With a smile on his wrinkly face, he bowed deeply to welcome him.
“Senior Brother Chen, why are you coming in person? If there is anything I, Old Qian, can do, please don’t hesitate to tell me. ”
Feng Jiu stood there, looking at him without leaving any trace. She saw the man was about thirty years old. He had regular facial features, fair, and had a babyface. However, surprisingly, he had a funny handlebar mustache on such a face.
