Peter was granted a small estate, a couple of the Hamdun peasant families where moved along with him, each given a small coin gesture in return for the their co-operation to re-pay to the trouble.
The actual house Peter had moved into used to be the old Vaux Estate it was small but for now it would do, Peter had the place cleaned up and re-decorated, it was liveable but not by much as far as Peter was concerned.
However it would be a full 12 months before Brianna joined him as his wife and Peter was already making plans as to how to fill that time, he’d heard tell that Grimstead had rather an abundance of single peasant girls who be unable to find a husband. So out of the goodness of his heart, as very large it was he decided to give one of them a job as a maid on the estate, after all the washing and cooking wouldn’t do its self, and of course a there would be other duties involved, a mans bed got terribly lonely after all.
Granted he wasn’t sure Brianna would exactly approve but he didn’t exactly plan to tell her, once she married him there would be very little she could do about it anyway he laughed.
Looking at the list of girls names he had, it looked like his first stop would be the Baev’s, rumour had it her father had vowed not to grant his youngest daughter a dowry. Word had it she’d already been housebroken in regards to the bedroom too…Her father would be surely stuck for options as to what to do with her. Surely a man would rather his daughter, came to work for a respectable lord than spend her life as little more than a whore, Peter thought with a smile.
