"This... This is the end?", Sophia could not believe what was happening before her eyes.

She had long known that Hubert was very strong, but this time, Hubert had once again refreshed her understanding of his strength.

A single person had blown up an alley into ruins.

Was this really a level that a human could reach?

Meanwhile, Miranda was even more dumbfounded. She stared blankly at everything in front of her and felt a little at a loss.

"Alright, let's go up and take a look. It's very likely that they are still alive. Don't get killed by them.", Hubert reminded her as he walked towards the ruins with the Holy Light Shield and the Holy Light Sword in his hands.

Upon seeing this, Sophia hurriedly followed behind. She already turned off the safety of the Glock in her hand. Her eyes were nervously scanning the surroundings, afraid that an enemy would suddenly appear from the piles of trashes.

If it was an ordinary person, it would take a lot of effort to find a few buried monsters in such a large pile of ruins.

However, this was not a problem for Hubert.

Hubert had activated the Eyes of Good and Evil. The red halos on the three monsters were the best indicators, so Hubert could easily find them in the ruins.

At this time, two of the three red halos had already dimmed, leaving only one that was still flickering with a small amount of light. This meant that two of the Porcupine brothers were dead, and only one was left on the brink of death.

Hubert came to the ruins where the surviving porcupine man was. He pulled open two pieces of gravel, revealing the porcupine man that was buried.

At this time, the porcupine man looked very miserable. More than half of the spikes on its body had been destroyed, and many of them had been blown up by the Holy Light Bomb. The broken pieces even stabbed back into the porcupine man's body.

"Why did you attack me?", Hubert squatted down and asked with a smile.

"Why should I tell you?", the porcupine man glanced at Hubert with anger and unwillingness in his eyes.

"I advise you to tell me honestly. Otherwise, you might suffer a little.", Hubert said with a smile.

"Hehe, I've been in a gang since I was twelve years old. I've seen all kinds of tricks. If you have the ability, just use it.", the porcupine man's face was full of disdain.

"Is that so? Then let's try.", said Hubert and began to take off his shoes.

"You, what are you doing?", the porcupine man saw Hubert start to take off his shoes and was confused.

He knew all kinds of treatments from the enemy such as whips, fists, electric shocks, and even taking off his pants, but what was the purpose of taking off the shoes?

Hubert took off his shoes, took off the socks on his feet, and handed them to the porcupine man. "See? This is your last chance. If you don't say it, I will stuff this sock into your mouth."

Hearing Hubert's words, the porcupine man couldn't help but scream, "You devil, take the sock away, take it away!"

The porcupine man was a bit obsessed with cleanliness. Due to the shortage of supplies, Hubert hadn't washed up since yesterday, and he hadn't changed his socks. His socks were soaked in sweat and stink, it was even more worse than the combination of canned herring and blue cheese.

To the porcupine man, it was almost like a horrifying biological weapon.

"Say it or not. If you don't say it, I will put this sock in your mouth.", Hubert said as he slowly handed the sock to the porcupine man.

"I say, I say, it's Yoda. Yoda asked us to do it!", the porcupine man shouted loudly.

"Yoda?", Hubert frowned when he heard the name.

He knew Yoda, he was a special monster. Its appearance was actually a money bag, and he was often called as Greedy Money Bag.

Yoda was a wealthy businessman, and he was also the financier behind a few gangs. Therefore, after the Cataclysm, he became the overlord of the entire western region, and became one of the leaders of the entire city.

Hubert had helped Yoda in the past, but Yoda owed him a large sum of commission fees.

Until he was reborn, he still had not get back the money.

"Isn't Yoda in the western district? Why did he let you guys come here?, "Hubert asked.

"Yoda asked us to investigate the forces in this area to see if anyone would pose a threat to him. We saw that you had gathered so many resources, and we felt that you were not a simple character, so we decided to take care of you first.", the porcupine man said immediately.

Since he had already said all the confidential things, he might as well sell Yoda out.

"Why did he want to check out this area? As far as I know, he hasn't completely controlled the western region yet, right? Why is he in such a hurry to expand his territory?", Hubert asked.

"I don't know about that. I'm just take the money and do things,", the porcupine man said.

"Does that mean you're useless?", asked Hubert.

Hearing Hubert's words, the porcupine man's face immediately changed, he said anxiously, "Don't kill me. I have money. I can give you money. I have 200,000 US dollars in savings, as well as jewelry and gold bars. They are all hidden in a secret place. As long as you let me go, these are all yours."

Hearing this, Hubert laughed. He waved his sword and chopped off the porcupine man's head.

They were already in the middle of the Cataclysm. Money became worthless and it was hard to wipe one's ass with it.

As for gold jewelry, they also became worthless.

The real valued things were canned food, bottled water, cigarettes, candy, and even bullets.

These were the hard currency of the world after the Cataclysm.

Moreover, they would become more and more valuable with the passage of time.

As for the porcupine man, from the moment he dared to attack Hubert, he was already a dead man.

As for Yoda, Hubert's current strength was not enough to deal with him. He would let Yoda enjoy himself for a while and wait for his strength to increase.

After Hubert killed the porcupine man, he casually covered his face with a stone. It could be considered as letting the porcupine man rest in peace.

"Let's go back to the church. I'm afraid Father Marlin will be waiting for us.", Hubert put on his socks as he greeted Sophia and Miranda.

"Has he always been like this?", Miranda asked Sophia in a low voice.

Hubert's actions just now had a huge impact on her.

She did not expect Hubert to do such a thing.

"Special case, this is just a special case. He did this to protect us." Sophia stammered.

To be honest, Hubert's actions just now had a huge impact on her.

She and Hubert were classmates at the community college. They had known each other for five years. This was the first time she had seen Hubert acted like that just now.

Moreover, Sophia found that she couldn't understand Hubert.

After the Cataclysm, Hubert seemed to have changed into a different person, and she couldn't understand him anymore.

"Are you an angel or the Hubert in my memory?", looking at Hubert's back, Sophia couldn't help but feel confused.
