Alia’s eyes turned red, “Father, please wait, I will definitely find a way to get the divine pearl first!”

The king shook his head, “It’s too late, don’t waste your efforts.”

Not to mention whether the rumors were true or not.

The city of Shafan was buried thousands of meters under the sand. Even if the ruins of the ancient city could really be found, would the opportunity be that easy to obtain?

Alia’s head bowed low, her heart filled with self-reproach.

If only she had realized it earlier, if only she had been stronger ……

The king said comfortingly, “Alia, don’t blame yourself.”

“Compared to the others, you have done very well, I have seen them all.”

Alia thought of something, wiped her tears and wondered, “Where are the other princes, why haven’t they come?”

The king’s life was in danger.

The princes and concubines should all be here.

But in this palace, so large and spacious, there was no one else but her and the Queen.

A cold glint flashed in the king’s eyes as he sneered, “Perhaps they are waiting for an opportunity, a chance to take my throne!”

Alia’s brows knitted together.

She had known that the king’s sons were ambitious.

But now that her father was not dead, they were too blatant!

The queen wiped her eyes and said in a low voice, “Alia, if His Majesty is really …… I’m afraid it will become very dangerous, you should leave Saxin Kingdom as soon as possible.”

“I have prepared a retreat path for you, when the time comes, the Great Chief Chancellor will escort you out.”

Alia was silent for a moment, “What do you mean by that, Mother? And what about you?”

The Queen’s eyes were stern as she said, “If His Majesty should leave this world, I will never live alone and volunteer to be buried in the royal tomb!

Alia froze.

A trace of tenderness swept across the King’s eyes.

Although the palace was cold and the hearts of the people were evil, the queen truly loved him with all her heart.

It was at this moment of great sadness that king saw a figure in the light.

Only to see a man rummaging through a box beside her.

It seemed as if he was searching for something.

The king wondered, “Where did this man come from? What is he doing there?”

Without looking back, Su Shi said, “You guys continue, don’t mind me.”

“??”

Seeing Su Shi act like nothing had happened, Alia’s heart became even more sour.

She had helped Su Shi with all her heart and soul, but in his eyes, it was as if she was worthless.

Now her father’s life was at stake, but Su Shi still didn’t care.

Alia bit her lip and said in a trembling voice, “Shengzi Su, is your heart made of stone?”

“Shengzi Su?”

The king’s brows furrowed.

After taking a closer look, he took a cold breath, “You are Duke Su of Linlang? What are you doing here?”

Only then did Alia realize that she had let her mouth slip.

“Father, Shengzi Su was invited by me to come for the Mysterious Sand Divine Pearl.”

Even so, she still spoke in favor of Su Shi. After all, this was Yu Ren’er’s man.

Seeing the young girl’s desperate look, Su Shi shook his head and said, “It’s not that I’m hard-hearted.”

Alia knitted her brows and said, “What do you mean by that?”

This guy was still talking nonsense when her father turned into sand?

Su Shi shrugged his shoulders, “You’d better ask him yourself.”

Seemingly realizing that something was wrong, Alia turned her head to look at the King.

“Father?”

“Ahem.”

“The problem is that your father is fine.”

The king scratched his head in embarrassment.

Wait, scratching his head?

Looking at the arm that had turned into sand but was now intact, Alia and the Queen’s eyes were filled with disbelief.

“Father?!”

“Your Majesty?!”

“Hush, keep your voice down.”

The king gestured for them to be quiet, “If the others hear, I’ll lose all my efforts!”

Alia wondered, “What’s going on here?”

How could my father’s body suddenly be restored to its original state when he had been struck by a curse and was near death?

This can’t be a dream!

The king sighed, “There’s nothing I can do about it ……”

Among the oasis countries, Saxin Kingdom is powerful but has never had a crown prince.

The king did not have a first-born son.

The Queen has only one daughter, the eldest Princess Alia, and the other three royal sons were all born to concubines.

This will not be a problem.

After all, there are many concubines who have succeeded the throne since the beginning of time.

But these three children were not very capable despite their ambition, and they ganged up on each other and messed up the palace.

Aliam understood, “Father wants to test them this way?”

The king shook his head, “More than just a test, I want to see their true colors….”

The faction rivalry is getting worse!

The result naturally made him even more disappointed beyond measure.

At first they would come and pretend, but after learning that this was an “incurable disease”, they all showed their true colors.

While forcing him to make a decision, they secretly prepared their armies to battle for the throne.

“Except for my daughter, everyone expects my death.”

The king sighed.

These short three months had made him see too much.

Alia said sadly, “So you have been deceiving me all this time? Do you know how I felt these three months?”

She was very sad inside.

She didn’t know whether to be happy or sad for a while.

With all the ups and downs, it gave her a feeling that wasn’t quite real.

“You have to do the whole show.”

“If you don’t come along in the show, I’m afraid they wouldn’t have believed it so easily.”

The king said helplessly, “I just didn’t expect that even though I disguised myself so well, yet I was still spotted by Shengzi Su in an instant.”

The other party’s realm is definitely not high, but these eyes are really amazing.

Su Shi said, “This sand control art is very subtle, and when combined with the formation to interfere with perception, it can indeed hide the truth, but not everything is perfect.”

The king said curiously, “Where are my shortcomings?”

Su Shi said indifferently, “There is no fear in your eyes.”

There was great terror between life and death.

Even if one was a supreme power, when faced with death, one would definitely be terrified.

However, this king was too calm.

Coupled with the ability granted by the divine pearl, he easily saw through his opponent’s disguise.

Babugh faintly froze, then shook his head and smiled bitterly, “As expected of Shengzi Su.”

Thinking of her actions just now, Alia was slightly embarrassed.

She walked up to Su Shi and bowed her head, “I’m sorry, Shengzi Su, it was me who misjudged you just now.”

Su Shi crossed his arms without saying anything.

Alia grabbed the corner of his coat and shook it, saying in a memogonizing tone, “Shengzi, don’t be mad at me, okay?”

Su Shi snorted coldly, “Am I not hard-hearted now?”

Alia’s head shook, “Of course not, Shengzi Su has a good heart, you are a good person!”

The Queen and King looked at each other.

Something was not right about these two!
