The senior was attractive, but Wang Teng wasn't the type to be rendered immobile by a beautiful face.

"Alright, can you find a place? Do you need me to bring you there?"

After learning Wang Teng's identity, Lin Qian seemed a bit more enthusiastic, especially since she found out he was a grandmaster alchemist. She wanted to get to know him even more.

A grandmaster alchemist was a walking points ATM.

"Do you need to purchase any materials or herbs? We have them here."

"No, I have quite a few materials on me. I'll buy more when I run out," Wang Teng declined with a smile.

At this point, he had to admire his foresight. Having the floral fairies grow various spiritual herbs in the Space Fragment turned out to be quite useful.

If he were to buy these materials from the academy, it would surely cost a lot of points, which would be a waste.

Of course, not everyone could possess a Space Fragment like him at the cosmos stage. He even developed his spiritual field and had a bunch of floral fairies helping him to take care of it.

Both the construction of a spatial realm and the cultivation of spiritual fields were significant undertakings. Most people wouldn't be able to accomplish such feats, nor would they have the time to engage in such endeavors.

Therefore, the majority had to abide by the academy's regulations.

Lin Qian watched Wang Teng leave with a hint of regret. She wanted to say a few more words, but he seemed completely uninterested.

"Oh no, I forgot to exchange contact information."

She clapped her hands, frustrated by herself.

"Still looking? He's already gone." At this moment, someone suddenly patted her shoulder.

Lin Qian almost jumped in fright. The other party walked silently so she didn't notice her.

"What are you doing? You scared me to death."

The newcomer was a tall and elegant woman, a friend Lin Qian was familiar with. They usually worked here together to earn points.

However, their primary objective wasn't earning points. It was to get to know some alchemists.

If Wang Teng had paid close attention just now, he would have noticed that the staff in this grand hall were mostly attractive women.

"Who was that just now? He looked quite handsome. I think he stole your soul," the tall and beautiful senior asked curiously.

"Let me tell you, that was…" Lin Qian pulled the other party to the side and the two began to whisper in hushed voices.

She had forgotten the assurances she made to Wang Teng earlier.

Perhaps she felt that it was just something to share with a friend, so it didn't matter.

"Really? It's him!" The tall and beautiful senior sister was astounded. "You better catch him. It looks like he's a grandmaster alchemist. Amazing! We're probably the first to know about this."

"You're right. However, it's still a question if he can make a grandmaster-level pill. I have my doubts," Lin Qian said with shimmering eyes.

"I don't think so. He's here to make pills, not to deceive people. If he doesn't have the ability, why would he waste points coming here?" The tall and beautiful senior sister said.

"You make sense!" Lin Qian nodded thoughtfully.

"That's why you need to make a move quickly, while others are still in the dark," the tall and beautiful senior advised.

"Wouldn't I be robbing the cradle?" Lin Qian blushed. Although this was her plan, Wang Teng was much younger than her. She found it hard to proceed.

"If you can't bring yourself to do it, give him to me. I'm not shy," the tall and beautiful senior teased.

"Seriously? Are we still best friends?" Lin Qian sighed in exasperation.

"What's wrong with that? I'm willing to sell myself for points. Why will I care about the age?" The tall and beautiful senior sister said nonchalantly.

"You're right. I must seize this opportunity. Many of the people who came with us have already advanced to the universe stage. Yet, we're still hovering at the heaven stage. If we don't improve quickly, we'll be eliminated," Lin Qian's eyes gleamed with determination as she spoke.

Martial warriors who could enter the Stellar Academies were all ambitious people.

Although Lin Qian and the tall and beautiful senior chose this method to get more points, they did it precisely because of their ambition.

"Sigh, I thought I had a chance." The tall and beautiful senior sister sighed. Her friend discovered Wang Teng first. Their relationship was strong enough that they wouldn't let something like this come between them, especially considering they were not petty individuals.

"Alright, alright. If there's a good one next time, I'll tell you first." Lin Qian chuckled.

"Look at how pleased you are," the tall and beautiful senior sister retorted in a playful tone.

"I'm afraid it won't be easy. I feel that he has no interest in me. He left without saying much and didn't even look at me," Lin Qian said dejectedly.

"Really? He doesn't even look at a beauty like you? Is he the legendary oblivious and straightforward kind of man?" The tall and beautiful senior sister was surprised.

"How can you say that about him?" Lin Qian was caught between laughter and tears.

"Either way, you should give it a try. With your charm, it's worth a shot," the tall and beautiful senior advised. "If it doesn't work out, you can always move on."

"You're right." Lin Qian nodded.

Wang Teng didn't know that he had become a potential prey. He arrived outside an alchemy room on the volcano.

The alchemy room looked somewhat like a villa half-embedded in the mountainside. One side was exposed and the other was integrated into the rock, giving it a unique charm.

Wang Teng wasn't in a hurry to enter the alchemy room. Instead, he scanned his surroundings with his spiritual power first.
