Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 299
Happy New Year Kuma!!!!!
Bear-san Meets Another Familiar Adventurers.
I defeated the Sandwolves and now heading to the next pillar.
Because there is nothing but sand, there is nothing to block the view.
I did not lose sight of the pillars even if I made a little detour.
Then, even if I find some monsters, I can go on smoothly without being attacked.
And the desert turns red as the sun sets.
The sight was very beautiful.
It was so beautiful that it can calm anyone’s spirit.
The desert scene in a movie that I saw before was nothing but despair.
The desert seen throughout the scene is beautiful, but the characters may be more happy with a cold drink on such a landscape.
But I don’t have that despair, so I can enjoy the scenery that really comes to view.
[Hugging Bear, it’s beautiful.]
We stopped and watched the sunset as the sun goes down.
When the sun completely sunk, the area darkens.
I will set up a Bear House here and stay for the night.
Considering the possibility of merchants and adventurers moving on the cooler nighttime, I’ll set up the Bear House away from the pillars.
However, since there is nothing obstructive here, I might be noticed by the light leaking from the Bear House.
So I made an Earth Wall on all sides surrounding the Bear House.
The wall also has a role to protect the Bear House from monsters and from being buried by the sand.
When I get up in the morning, its not a laughing matter if the Bear House got buried in the sand.
I entered the Bear House surrounded by Earthen Walls, then Hugging Bear followed.
[Wai~, Hugging Bear, stop, stop.]
In my words, Hugging Bear tilt his head to the side, like saying [What?]
Looking at Hugging Bear’s feet, sand has entered between the fur strands.
If he enter as it is, sand will fall onto the Bear House’s floor.
I will unsummon Hugging Bear and quickly summon it again.
And summon Swaying Bear while I’m at it.
Yeah, the summoned Hugging Bear and Swaying Bear are both in beautiful conditions with no sand.
You may enter the room now.
In that respect, the Bear Equipment is beautiful.
By the way, I transformed Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear into bear cubs. (TN: credits to kotarou inugami.)
[Both of you, thank you for today.]
I stroked both Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear’s heads to express my gratitude.
Then, I ate dinner and took Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to the bath.
A hot bath in the desert.
A mismatched combination.
But I have to take a bath at the end of the day.
I didn’t go yesterday.
Also in the hot weather today (although I was fine), Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear both worked hard, so I decided to wash their bodies as well.
Both of them have been unsummoned once, so they’re already beautifully clean, but washing their bodies, will make them feel good.
[Today, Hugging Bear first.」
It’s a pity that Swaying Bear always comes first.
So I’ll wash Hugging Bear first today instead.
Hugging Bear came in front of me and sat down.
I lather soap on Hugging Bear and wash it cleanly.
The fur is beautiful because unsummoned and re-summoned him earlier, but it’s a matter of feeling.
While Hugging Bear is being washed, he narrows his eyes, making a relaxed face.
Then I’ll wash your head, feet, and all around the body.
Finally, rinse with hot water from the head and finish.
[Okay, I’m done with you.]
Hugging Bear goes to the bathtub after answering with <Kuu-n>.
He climbed to the bathtub with a small body and entered the bathtub.
And placed his head on the frame of the bathtub to make it feel comfortable.
Swaying Bear comes in front of me in exchange for Hugging Bear.
And then, he turns his the back on me so it can be washed.
I’ll wash it properly.
First, I’ll pour hot water and wash the black fur of Swaying Bear.
Even though it’s black, it’s not dirty.
Such a black luster.
Then, after finishing Swaying Bear, climbed on the bathtub just like Hugging bear, and entered next to each other.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear put their faces on the bathtub frame, making them comfortable.
Their faces look relaxed.
That’s why it feels good.
While watching these bears, I’ll wash my body and enter the bathtub.
Umu, it feels good.
Just stretch my back and relax my body.
However, this doesn’t feel like we’re in a desert.
Outside is a world of sand.
There are no plants, no monsters.
It would be impossible to take a bath in such a place.
I rest my body while I embrace both Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
After getting out of the bath, I dried my hair, using a hairdryer without brushing it back.
That’s it for today’s work.
When I returned to the room, I entered the futon.
And ask Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to wake me up if something’s wrong as usual.
As I enter the futon, I fall into my dream comfortably enough to forget that this is a desert.
The next morning, I was woken up as usual, and departed at the same time as the sunrise.
I was able to get out of the Bear House safely without getting buried.
I have seen the sunrise several times, but the sunrise in the desert was beautiful as ever.
We continued to advance today, alternating Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
It’s pretty good and all, but we still haven’t arrived yet?
I forgot the number of pillars.
In the first place, it is more correct to say that I left it all to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear and didn’t count it because I was sleeping on their backs.
And even now I am sleeping on Swaying Bear’s back.
We advanced without being attacked by monsters.
While I was sleeping comfortably on the back of Swaying Bear, he suddenly stops.
And tried to wake me up on his back.
[Swaying Bear, what happened? Did we arrive?]
I rubbed my eyes and looked forward.
Not far away, there is an adventurer who is swinging his sword.
Is that a worm?
A worm pops out of the sand.
There seems to be some adventurers fighting it.
There are those who do nothing behind the fight.
Are those merchants?
Just now, I was saying [seems to be] because everyone is wearing a hood like cloak, so it can’t be distinguished just by appearance.
Um, do they need help?
I don’t want to stand out if I don’t need to.
I explained to Swaying Bear that its troublesome and I didn’t want to get involved.
But from this position, I didn’t know the situation.
So I’ll try to get a little closer.
The adventurers are wearing hoods and fighting worms the size of a wolf.
Its smaller than the worm I fought before, yet a lot of them.
But the worms are already rolling on the sand.
Apparently, the adventurers are struggling on the fight.
Are they okay?
While watching the adventurers’ battle, I somehow recognize them somewhere.
A figure fighting with quick movements with a knife in hand.
A swordsman who gives instructions to his friends and swinging his sword.
A swordsman making a noise every time he attacks a monster.
A magician who casts magic while following behind the three people.
[Senia, you’re too far ahead. Mel, you’re too far away from the escort. Toya, to the right. Mel, attack if there is a chance.] Jade
The ones fighting is Jade-san’s party. (TN: the party she met after killing the Black Tiger.)
The worms were killed following Jade-san’s precise instructions.
If you’re struggling, I’ll try to help, but Jade-san’s group is steadily reducing the number of monsters.
[There are so many!] Toya
Certainly, sand worms emerge from the sand one after another.
If this was a big worm that I had fought before, I would have rushed in and killed it.
I’ll try using my Detection Magic to confirm.
Well, even if I looked at it lightly, there are about 20 nearby.
Moreover, they are moving around in the sand.
Jade-san and his team are killing worms, but there are just too many.
It seems that they can beat them as it is, but is it good to use a sword?
I made Swaying Bear walk.
[Jade, a bear from behind!] Merchant
One of the merchants noticed me and screams.
Immediately, the merchants tried to run away from me as I come closer.
Jade-san turned around in the voice of the merchant and I met his glance.
The merchants are puzzled by Jade-san’s reaction.
I’m too lazy to explain to the merchants so I’ll ignore them.
[Little Miss?] Toya
Senia-san looks at me while fighting.
[Need a hand?] Yuna
I can’t ignore them and leave this place, so I asked.
[It would be helpful if you could do that. There are so many of them, it’s ridiculous.] Jade
Without a second thought, Jade-san answered immediately.
[Alright then.] Yuna
If you know me, the matter will be settled quick.
I use my Detection Magic to find out the locations of the worm is in the sand.
[Jade-san, I’ll get the worm out of the sand, can you please do the clean up?] Yuna
That seems faster.
[That’s good, but can you do it?] Jade
I nod to that word,
[Mel protect the merchants in the rear, after Yuna got the worms out of the sand, Touya and Senia take them out!] Jade
I got off of Swaying Bear and told him to stay behind with Mel-san.
Swaying Bear cries <Kuu-n> and heads for Mel-san.
[Well then, here I go!] Yuna
I started running.
Then using my Detection Magic, I fired Air Bombs at the worms in the sand.
The worms then jumps as if the fish had burst out from the sea to the hill.
[I know.] Toya
I shoot Air Bombs into the sand one after another.
When the worm soars into the sky, it falls to the ground and creeps.
Yeah, it’s disgusting.
It immediately tried to get back into the sand, but Toya and Jade-san stab their swords and did not let them escape.
Senia-san chops the worm that burst out in the air before falling.
[Hey, Little Miss, the pace is too fast.] Toya
[Toya, move your sword before moving your mouth.] Jade
I dug out worms one after another.
[Yuna! The sand is rising too much.] Jade
It is troublesome to say such a thing.
I don’t think I did too much.
However, at that time, the wind blows off the sand that scattered in the air and erases it.
Apparently, Mel-san removed the sand with magic.
Jade-san’s sight has been cleared, more and more worms are being defeated.
[This is the last!] Yuna
I shot an Air Bomb at the last one.
The worm burst out of the sand.
Toya runs toward the worm.
[The last one’s mine…] Toya
When Toya tried to swing his sword, countless knives flew from behind and hit the worm’s vital point.
[No, it’s mine.] Senia
There is a figure of Senia-san holding a knife without expression.
She had something other than a Mithril knife.
Toya is disappointed while watching the worm.
[Ahhh.. I’m so close.] Toya
[Because your feet were too slow.] Senia
[I’m not slow.] Toya
[Oh, my mistake… Your legs were too short.] Senia
Senia-san answers while pulling out the pierced knife.
[Hey, my legs are not short nor slow, your knives are just faster.] Toya
[Then next time, move faster than a knife.] Senia
No, it would not be possible.
I might be able to do it though.
I’ll go back to Swaying Bear after confirming that there are no monsters with my Detection Magic.
Mel-san was petting Swaying Bear next to a scared merchant.
Once again, she met another adventurers she knew.
Characters with a fixed battle style are easy to write.
Thanks to you, the overall rating exceeded 90,000. (TN. Just like Vegeta said [It’s over 90,000!])
Untill next time, yoroshikuonegaishimasu.
