Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 317
Bear-san, Fights the Big Scorpion.
I’m left alone, looking at the Scorpions.
[Now then, it’s a good thing that I’m the only one left, but what should I do now? Swaying Bear?] Yuna
I asked Swaying Bear who stayed with me.
Swaying Bear has a face that says [I don’t know.]
Yeah, of course.
[Can I roast it with Flame Bear?] Yuna
Just try to imagine…
Even if it didn’t burn the shell, the insides may get cooked with heat. If the pan is heated, the heat will reach deeper. If the heat reaches inside it, it may be able to bake its meat.
When I look at Swaying Bear, he cries <Ku~u ̄ n>, while shaking his head a little.
I wonder why?
Swaying Bear, sits up and touches his stomach.
[Do you have a stomachache?] Yuna
Swaying Bear shakes his head.
It’s different, apparently.
Swaying Bear moves his neck and looks at the big Scorpion.
Swaying Bear’s belly…
The answer that leads to it is…
Well… Pomf! (TN: muffled clapping sfx.)
Oh, I see.
[Crystal plate.] Yuna
Whether my answer was right or not, Swaying Bear sounds happily.
He touched his stomach to represented the crystal plate in the Scorpion’s stomach.
Well, of course….
I don’t know how robust the crystal plate is. But I don’t think it can withstand the heat of the Flame Bears.
The Flame Bear has extremely high temperature. If it gets baked by the Flame Bear as well, it may break.
Electrical appliance breaks down at extreme temperatures. As for my personal computer, I left the air conditioner on during the summer.
But then, I can’t use lightning magic as well. I don’t know how it’ll affects its body. If the electricity flows into the body and the crystal plate cracks, I will not be able to be recover it.
If I think about it that way, I can’t use the internal destruction magic.
The rest are water, ice, wind and soil, but I don’t feel like they’re all going to be fatally damage by it.
Before fighting, I thought it would be easy to defeat it using the Bear Cheat, but when I think about the crystal plate in its body, the attack method suddenly narrows.
This could be a surprisingly troublesome fight.
I pat the head of Swaying Bear and thank him for warning me.
So, before fighting the big Scorpion, I have to deal with the small Scorpions that are getting in the way.
I lean over from the height of about 2 or 3 floors and shoot an ice arrow towards the Scorpion that was crawling just below.
The ice arrow stuck onto Scorpion’s back. However, it kept crawling as if it was nothing.
Did it stop halfway?
Either the shell is too hard, or because the ice arrows were not powerful enough, it seems that they cannot be defeated by the current level of attack.
I thought it was just a small fry and a little delicious?
But it seems to be stronger, harder, sharper, and faster than I thought.
The Scorpion with an ice arrow sticking on its back, raised its tail up. And it shoots it’s needle above, towards me.
I quickly lower my body and avoid it.
I look down as I crawl. Then, the Scorpions began to gather.
Hey, that’s too fast.
I only shot a single ice arrow.
Look at how much coordination is taking place right now. But if I stay here, I’ll be fine.
Then, the Scorpions climbed the wall while I was thinking of such a dumb idea.
You must be kidding me! Moreover, their climbing speed is so fast.
However, it seems to be the right choice to block the passage. Scorpions were no longer able to chase Karina and the others from here.
I move directly above the climbing Scorpions.
The Scorpions climb the wall instinctively.
If I take a position directly above them, they will quickly identify me as an air head asking to be hit.
I shot a hard, sharp, fast, ice arrow at the ticking chelicerae of the nearest Scorpion. The ice arrow sinks into the Scorpion’s chelicerae, then falls to the ground and stops moving.
Like any living thing, the mouth(chelicerae) is the main weakness. If you can’t stop it with your teeth or anything, it’ll destroy your body.
I aim and shoot down the chelicerae of the Scorpions climbing like a shooting game. There are a lot of them, but their number will surely decrease.
I thought I could annihilate the small Scorpions with simple grinding, but the big Scorpion slowly began to move.
And it’s heading towards me.
I caught a glimpse of it’s pitch black eyes. It’s disgusting.
The big Scorpion raises its tail high and aims the tip at me.
I ducked and laid prone on the floor. Several needles dart out of the big Scorpion’s tail.
The needles hit the wall that the small Scorpions were trying to climb, even the wall behind me. Some of the walls collapsed. Thanks to that, the Scorpions, which were climbing the wall, fell to the ground.
The size of the needle is about the size of my arm. The tip is very sharp.
If I get hit by it, even I would be worried of whether the Bear Equipment can bear it.
I think it can withstand the impact, but what I’m really worried about was getting impaled by the sharp tip.
Though I don’t think the Bear Equipment will break, however I can’t imagine when I get hit by it.
That’s why I’m not going to try it.
The big Scorpion isn’t stopping it’s barrage. More and more needles are flying. The small Scorpions are still trying to climb the wall without giving up.
This might be bad.
It’s a hassle to fight the small Scorpions and the big Scorpion simultaneously. I just wanted to reduce the number a little more if I could.
I attacked the small Scorpions and called back Swaying Bear.
It is dangerous to leave Swaying Bear like that, so it is better to return him. Of course, I don’t doubt Swaying Bear’s ability to fight. But he might not only get attacked by the Scorpions, he might get eaten up as well.
Therefore, I decided to send him back because it was dangerous if there was a chance of it happening to Swaying Bear.
However, Swaying Bear cries <Kuu-n> as if he hates it a little.
[I’ll be fine.] Yuna
I pat Swaying Bear’s head, but Swaying Bear doesn’t like it.
[It’s dangerous, so please.] Yuna
[Sorry. I’ll call you when the fight is over.] Yuna
I sent back the reluctant Swaying Bear.
I’m glad he’s worried about me. But, I’m worried about Swaying Bear as well.
If anything happens to Swaying Bear, I could not regret it even if I try to. I’m sure I won’t be able to forgive myself.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are my precious family. I cannot afford to bring my precious family to danger.
I deeply apologize to Swaying Bear within my heart.
I’ll summon you later, so forgive me.
But I have to defeat the big Scorpion.
[Well, then, struggle for me!] Yuna
I decide to go wild without worrying about the surroundings. I jump from the height of about 2-3 floors.
I squeezed the black Swaying Bear knife and the white Hugging Bear knife in my hands.
I named the black-handled mithril knife, Swaying Bear knife and the white-handled mithril knife, Hugging Bear knife.
I may have named it, but Gazal-san made it to suit the color of my Bear Puppets. Then I simply named them according to their colors.
Holding the knives in my hands, I rushed towards the small Scorpions.
Then, I shoot water magic at the small Scorpions. The soaked Scorpions were stiffed for a moment. I cut the tails with Swaying Bear knife in my right hand and stabbed their heads with Hugging Bear knife.
I just killed 2-3 small Scorpions, and the big Scorpion slowly moved its body. The direction of the tail is tracking me. Then as expected, it rapidly fired it’s needles at me.
I put strength on my feet and evade to the side.
While running clockwise around the big Scorpion, I stunned the small Scorpions by soaking them with water magic and killed them with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear knives.
Anyway, I’m really glad that Karina and the others went back.
I don’t want them to see me fighting like this.
It may traumatize them.
Of course, I can’t show them the power of the cheats.
Above all, the appearance of fighting monsters in a Bear Costume is too surreal.
If I saw such a character in the game fighting some monsters, I’d definitely laugh.
<A dude in Bear Costume attacking monsters with weapons, a dude in Bear Costume running around, a dude in Bear Costume cast magic and a dude in Bear Costumes jumping around.>
Such appearance will make anyone a laughingstock.
However, the common sense of the other world is different from the original world.
Karina doesn’t laugh. I just have a worried face.
I breathe in deeply to clear my mind.
As I run around the big Scorpion, I’m killing the small Scorpions to reduce the number. In the meantime, the big Scorpion is aiming at me and shooting it’s needles.
But if I don’t kill the small Scorpions, my legs will get caught.
When I defeat about a half of the small Scorpions, the big Scorpion turns around, stretches its tail and swings it with centrifugal force.
The tail of the big Scorpion is approaching me.
I jumped up.
The big tail quickly sweeps through the place where I was. There were small Scorpions in the place where it passed.
The small Scorpions got caught in the tail and blasted off. Then, the blasted Scorpions slammed onto the wall and got crushed.
The remains of the Scorpions that got crushed, demonstrates the power.
I don’t think I could bear it if I receive that attack.
Even if it doesn’t hurt, I don’t want it.
But this greatly reduced the number of Scorpions. In addition, the Scorpions began to escape into the holes at side of the pit, as quick as a cockroach.
Isn’t this lucky?
Now I can fight the big Scorpion without worrying about the surroundings.
Now, the real game starts.
I made a big water ball and threw it towards the big Scorpion. The Scorpion destroys the water ball with a tail spin. (TN: somehow it became a Pokémon battle.)
The destroyed water ball splashed on the Scorpion, but it didn’t stop moving.
I shoot multiple water balls, about the size of Swaying Bear, towards the big Scorpion to check the effect.
Some of them were knocked down by the tail, but several shots hit the body of the Scorpion.
However, it’s movement didn’t became dull even if it was soaking wet.
It seems to be different from the small-fry Scorpions.
Water is useless.
Then I shot a Bear Cutter.
It was blocked by the huge pincers and only made a little scratch. As I thought, its too hard to cut.
Next, I made a big rock, rotated and shoot it. The big Scorpion protects it’s face with both pincers in front.
The rock dents the Scorpion’s shell.
I wonder if the power approach is effective.
However, it makes me worried whether the crystal plate in the Scorpion’s stomach might get crushed by the vibration or by the impact.
By all means, I’m worried about the crystal plate in the Scorpion, so it is not possible to attack drastically.
The stress gradually accumulates.
And the narrow space, makes it more difficult to fight than I imagined. It’s troublesome to keep dragging this for too long.
And it doesn’t give me time to think.
The big Scorpion is approaching. It tried to pinch me with it’s right huge pincers. I evade it by moving to my left. But at that moment, the big body of the big Scorpion rotates.
I jumped and landed on the high ground of the entrance.
Damn, this is annoying.
I wonder if I should go back and think about what to do.
I take a deep breath and try to figure out how to deal with it, but it doesn’t want to give me that time. When it point it’s tail at me, it barrages me with it’s needles.
The wall above me collapses due to the impact of the needles.
Give me some time to think!
Oh, I want to burn it.
I want to electrocute it.
I want to roast the insides of it’s body.
I want to crush it.
The stress accumulates.
I feel like I’m being attacked by a weak, feeble, fragile opponent.
I want to smash its nose. (TN: Don’t ask me, that’s what the raw said.)
I get off the ground and stand in front of the Scorpion.
When I stood in front it, it’s face gave me the chills. It’s disgusting.
As it crawls, it shakes it’s huge pincers. I evade sideways and jump forward. Then, I land on it’s back, with the Scorpion’s head as a base.
A great chance to win.
I run my magical power into Swaying Bear knife and stab it’s shell. Swaying Bear knife easily pierced it.
I cut it’s back using Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear knives.
But it doesn’t reach the body, nothing came out like blood or something.
It seems that, either the shell is too thick or the knife didn’t reach all the way.
I wonder if I should use a long sword and not knives. If it’s true, I want to shoot magic from where I wounded it with the knives. However, its not possible to do it if its near the crystal plate.
While I’m puzzled on the back of the Scorpion, it’s tail attacks me. I’ll rip it off with Swaying Bear knife in a cross-side flash….
….The tip of the tail was cut.
Now you can’t even shoot a needle with this.
The moment I thought so, the tip of the tail swells a new needle tip comes out.
There is such a thing?
Am I going to have to cut it off from the base?
I just don’t know what to do anymore.
I think it will be settled next time.
It would be helpful if you could keep the subjugation method in your mind.
It’s not a great way to defeat it, but if you hit it, it will get dent…
Next time, should I post normally after three days?
