“Shengzi Su, why are you here?”

Alia stared at Su Shi in disbelief, her eyes full of disbelief.

She rubbed her eyes hard, suspecting that she was hallucinating.

Su Shi shrugged, “I showed the jade pendant to the guards, and then I was brought here.”

Alia had indeed instructed.

If someone showed the golden phoenix flower jade pendant, they must not be stopped and brought directly to the bedroom.

Alia shook her head, “That’s not what I asked. Didn’t Shengzi Su say that you are not interested in the matter of Shafan City? Why are you suddenly willing to come to see me again?”

“I am not here to see you.”

Su Shi said, “I am here to find something.”

Alia’s pretty face flushed slightly as she pointed at the shirt in his hand and said, “Is that the thing ….. you’re looking for?”

“Ahem.”

Su Shi’s face turned red and he hurriedly threw the tube top into the wardrobe.

He was so busy rummaging through the closet just now that he didn’t even realize what he was holding.

Seeing his slightly flustered appearance, a smile swept across Alia’s eyes, “It seems Ren’er was right, Shengzi is not as cold as he looks.”

Su Shi sniffed, “The Ren’er you are talking about is ……”

Alia smiled and said, “Who else? Of course it is the little fox from Green Hill Plains.”

Su Shi was puzzled, “You know Yu Ren’er?”

Alia nodded, “Ren’er and I are good friends, otherwise, how could I feel comfortable letting you come directly to the bedroom?”

Seeing that Su Shi was still skeptical, she took out a letter from her storage ring.

“We still wrote letters to each other recently, so Shengzi can see for himself if you don’t believe me.”

Su Shi opened the letter and it was indeed Yu Ren’er’s handwriting.

The letter was still recently sent, and the sentences were filled with thoughts about Su Shi.

It also explained some details about the relationship between the two of them.

There was no way to fake this.

From the tone of the letter, it could be seen that Yu Ren’er and Alia were indeed on good terms.

Su Shi wondered, “If you knew Ren’er, why didn’t you say so from the beginning?”

Alia laughed bitterly, “Shengzi didn’t give me a chance to say anything either.”

“Besides, there were other people around you at that time, and I was worried that if this was exposed, it would reflect badly on you.”

Currently, the relationship between the two races was tense, and Su Shi’s identity was very special.

Alia had to be a little careful.

Thinking of that kind and beautiful little fox, Su Shi’s gaze also softened a lot.

Seeing the gentle look in his eyes, it was much different from the cold defensive stance a moment ago.

Alia’s heart was slightly moved.

“It seems that Ren’er is indeed very important in his heart.”

She cleared her throat and said, “Can Shengzi trust me now?”

Su Shi put the letter away and said indifferently, “I believe that you and Ren’er are good friends, but that doesn’t mean I can trust you unconditionally.”

Even blood relatives could turn against each other when the opportunity arose.

Friendship proves nothing.

The other party was also eyeing the divine pearl, and he had to be on his guard.

Alia laughed bitterly, “Shengzi Su is really direct in his words.”

At that moment, she remembered something and asked, “By the way, what was Shengzi looking for just now?”

Su Shi said, “I was looking for a bell.”

“A bell?”

Alia was confused, “Then what are you looking for in my wardrobe?”

Su Shi rubbed his nose, “Ahem, it could be a big bell, or a small bell, or even a shard.”

“This is related to my cultivation, and it was an enlightenment that guided me here.”

He didn’t know exactly what it looked like until he saw the object with his own eyes.

Alia nodded in apparent understanding.

She cupped her chin and pondered, “How about this, I help you find the bell, and you help me find the heavenly pearl.”

Su Shi’s eyes flashed, “That divine pearl is very important to you?”

Alia sighed, “It’s very important, because it’s a matter of Father’s life.”

“Hmm?”

Su Shi stared vaguely.

After listening to the other party’s narration, Su Shi then suddenly realized.

Originally, he thought that Alia wanted to compete for an opportunity, but he did not expect that it was for the purpose of curing the King of Saxin Kingdom.

Three months ago, the King of Saxin Kingdom suddenly fell ill with a strange illness, and his body began to turn into sand.

At first, he was barely able to suppress it.

Now he was already very sick and in critical condition.

No one, be it the royal doctors or the great powers, could see why.

Everyone could only watch as the King’s life slowly drained away.

Alia learned by chance from an ancient book that this was a curse from the ancient desert that could only be cured by the legendary Mysterious Sand Divine Pearl.

She checked her collection and learned the secret of the fall of Shafan City back then.

It was roughly determined where the divine pearl was.

Su Shi wondered, “But what does that have to do with me?”

Alia explained, “After the disturbance in the desert, I sent someone to investigate and happened to see the scene where Shengzi killed Mu Khar.”

“And that place happens to be where the ruins of Shafan City are located.”

“I suspect that Shengzi might also be interested in this, thus thinking of cooperating with you to obtain the divine pearl.”

“I just want to cure my father’s illness, and when my father’s illness is healed, the Mysterious Sand Divine Pearl can be retrieved by Shengzi.”

Su Shi shook his head and said, “Your Saxin Kingdom is not weak, why should you look for me, an outsider?”

Alia sighed, “Because I don’t know who else to trust.”

Su Shi was silent for a moment, “You suspect that this was done by someone in the palace?”

“I don’t dare to draw conclusions either.”

“But if Father dies, the only people who will benefit are those few people.”

“Compared to them, I have more faith in Ren’er’s vision.”

Alia looked at Su Shi and said, “I know that Shengzi still has doubts in his mind. To show my sincerity, how about I help you find the bell first?”

Su Shi said curiously, “How do you plan to help me?”

Alia cupped her chin and sized him up, “You must first change your clothes before you can do that.”

It was already getting dark.

The two figures walked out of the bedroom.

Su Shi looked at the narrow-sleeved round-necked robe he was wearing and frowned, “I have to wear this? This is definitely a servant’s clothing.”

And it was not very fitting, tight.

Alia stifled a laugh, “I’m strictly guarded, so at least it’s much easier to have these clothes.”

“Okay.”

Su Shi was a little helpless.

There was no other choice.

He couldn’t sense the exact location, so the two of them could only search room after room.

Alia looked around and said, “Let’s start with Mother’s room.”

When no one was around, the two sneaked into the room.
