The problem is that everything the king touches turns to gold, not only the girl but also the blocks he walks over. Blocks that are golden will collapse so the he can't stand on them for long or he will too fall. Therefore the king has turn off his special ability by touching the blue blocks that can be found on every level. After that he will be able to touch the girl and move over blocks without danger. The game's story is told by short and concise sentences between levels.
