Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 319
I’m Worried About Bear-san. (Karina’s Point of View.)
I’m staring at the wall.
There are many monsters behind that wall. Yuna-san stayed there with Swaying Bear-chan. It is impossible even if you told me not to worry.
It looks like she will fight those monsters alone to retrieve the crystal plate.
A mysterious girl dressed as a Bear. A very gentle, pretty and adventurer-like girl. The King asked her to deliver the Kraken’s water magic stone. She was someone who reached out to me when my heart was about to collapse.
Why is Yuna-san doing that?
Please, I’m begging you…
Yuna-san, please come back safely.
Hugging Bear-chan rubs his cheeks against me, who seems to be worried as well. Are you comforting me?
I pet Hugging Bear-chan.
Yuna-san has very gentle bears.
[Let’s go, Karina-chan.] Mel
Mel-san called out to me while I was looking at the wall. We can’t be here forever, so we have to move.
I ride on Hugging Bear-chan.
Hugging Bear-chan starts walking while I’m holding on to his hair.
[Yuna-chan, is going to be fine.] Mel
Mel-san is kindly speaking to me who looks very anxious.
[But alone against such a big monster.] Karina
I heard she defeated the Kraken and other monsters, but it doesn’t matter to me. When I first heard it, I simply knew she defeated some great monsters.
But when I saw the big monster in front of me, it seemed impossible. Can people really defeat such a big monster?
[Yuna-chan is an adventurer who can easily kill big worms.] Mel
[But Mel-san and Jade-san, couldn’t kill it.] Karina
That’s how strong that monster is.
[That’s the case between our abilities. Yuna-chan is strong, but if it seems really impossible, she’ll escape without doing anything.] Mel
[It’s okay because she’s with Swaying Bear.] Senia
Senia-san, who’s walking on the other side of Mel-san, speaks. But that’s right, she might be able to do it along with Swaying Bear-chan. Not just the big monster. There were also many small monsters.
If I were to stand in that place, I would be scared and my legs would give up and I will be frozen in place.
[And if Yuna-chan wants to fight, we must respect those words.] Mel
[It’s an adventurer thing.] Senia
It’s an adventurer thing?
I can never be an adventurer.
[But, I’ve never seen such a big Scorpion before. Can she beat it alone? And the small Scorpions as well?] Toya
Toya-san walking behind us speaks.
But it’s exactly just what Toya-san says.
I think it’s impossible to defeat that huge number of monsters alone.
[Yuna-chan can easily kill the small Scorpions.] Mel
[But there’s even a bigger Scorpion in that narrow space. She may be able to beat the small Scorpions, but can she beat that thing? Earlier, she was saying <what the.. why you..> while defeating the small Scorpions. If you enter that space, all of those will attack simultaneously.] Toya
[That’s right, but……] Mel
Mel-san agrees with Toya-san’s words.
Does that mean she can’t beat it?
[But I believe there’s a way to defeat it, otherwise Yuna-chan wouldn’t stay behind. She’s the one who took down that golem alone after all.] Mel
[I was surprised as well at that time. The day after everyone gave up and just drank the whole night, she returned from the mine, saying she had defeated the golem.] Toya
[She didn’t mention how how she defeated it though. Maybe Swaying Bear-chan defeated it.] Mel
[If that’s the case, then this Bear may be strong, too.] Toya
Toya-san looks at Hugging Bear-chan.
Did Yuna-san gave me a very strong escort?
It seems that Hugging Bear-chan knows that he is being talked about, so he cried <Ku~n> cutely.
[Well, that Jō-chan is a weird girl after all.] Toya
[Fu fu, yeah. Yuna-chan is a strange girl, all right.] Mel
[Her strength is unknown.] Senia
Yuna-san is a very strange person.
As we talk, Jade-san joins in the conversation.
[Someone told me that ever since she arrived, only a few people saw Yuna fighting. But everyone was convinced that she’s the one who defeated those. As a proof, the Adventurer’s Guild raised her rank. If the story of the past is true, it will be possible for her to escape if she finds out that she cannot defeat it.] Jade
Her adventurer rank was C. She is still 15 years old, which seems to be great.
In addition to Kraken, she also defeated other monsters.
[She does have Swaying Bear-chan with her.] Mel
Surely if she is with Swaying Bear-chan, she may be able to escape.
[But, Most adventurers have never seen Yuna fight.] Jade
[Maybe she doesn’t want to be seen by others.] Senia
[Even if Yuna-chan could beat the worms in the desert by herself. She insisted on helping us so she can hide it.] Mel
Senia-san agreed, can Yuna-san really beat that number of worms alone?
[Because she can beat the Scorpions hidden in the sand. If I have such ability, I’ll show it off to everyone.] Toya
It sounds like Yuna-san is ridiculously strong.
I think Yuna-san is strong, if she could defeat the Kraken. But even when I saw Yuna-san defeating the worms and scorpions, I was looking at her like a pretty bear.
Certainly, she doesn’t seem to fit the bill.
[But don’t you care how Jō-chan fights? Aren’t you worried about that?] Toya
[Of course I’m worried. That cute girl stayed behind.] Mel
[Well then, should we stay behind as well?] Toya
[I want to see how Yuna fights.] Senia
[Then let’s go see it.] Toya
Senia-san agrees with Toya-san’s words and tries to turn back.
[Our job is to take Karina out of here. Senia don’t be swayed by Toya’s words.] Jade
According to Jade-san’s words, we will return top side instead of going back to Yuna-san.
We passed the area where Yuna-san killed the Scorpions and crossed the bridge made by Yuna-san.
Returning on the path we came from, we can see how Yuna-san is a very amazing person.
We got back to the ground floor of the pyramid where there are a lot of labyrinth passages, then we went and exit the pyramid.
When we got outside, everyone felt relaxed. We may have been too tensed.
Jade-san and his colleagues went to check the Ragaroot.
I will stay with Hugging Bear at the entrance of the pyramid and wait for Yuna-san to return.
[Are you so worried?] Mel
When I mentioned Yuna-san’s name, Mel-san and Senia-san came from behind.
[Mel-san, Senia-san? Didn’t you went to check the Ragaroots?] Karina
[We are Karina-chan’s escorts, a monster might attack.] Mel
[Well, of course. I trust Hugging Bear-chan.] Mel
Mel-san strokes Hugging Bear-chan’s head.
[Oh, Yuna-chan has it good. I also want a summon beast like this.] Mel
I agree with that. I really want Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan as well.
[In addition, this child and Yuna-chan seems to have their hearts connected, so if anything happened to Yuna-chan he’ll know about it, I think.] Mel
Certainly, she did said that.
[Hugging Bear-chan, do you sense Yuna-san?] Karina
I don’t know what he is saying.
But if that is true, if there is something happened to Yuna-san, he may sense it.
While we are waiting at the entrance of the pyramid, Uragan-san comes.
Looking around, you can see that the others are still doing the dismantling. It seems that they were still doing that.
[Oi! You’re back?] Uragan
[More or less.] Senia
[So did you find what you were looking for?] Uragan
[Well, we found it, that part is correct, but we didn’t get it.] Senia
[You found it but you didn’t get it?] Uragan
We found the location of the crystal plate. But we couldn’t get it.
[What do you mean by that?] Uragan
[Something like being eaten by a monster?] Mel
[I guess you can’t beat that, so you ran away?] Uragan
[Don’t mess with me. That’s the Scorpions’ parent.] Jade
Jade-san, who returned after taking care of Ragaroot, answered.
[Scorpions’ parent?] Uragan
[You may have heard of the rumors. Sometimes giant monsters appear.] Jade
[It was great, it was big.] Mel
Mel-san is trying to reach out to the size of the Scorpion with her hands outstretched.
[You gotta be kidding me.] Uragan
[Normally that’s what you’ll think. But it’s true.] Senia
[Well then you gave up and came back?] Uragan
Mel-san shakes her head.
[Yuna-chan is fighting it alone.] Mel
[…Hey, did you left that Bear Girl alone?] Uragan
Uragan-san’s eyes were wide open, his surprised expression appears due to Mel-san’s words.
When Mel-san affirmed, Uragan-san gets angry and grabs Mel-san’s collar. (TN: chest…. Officer, that guy!)
But Senia-san points a knife at Uragan-san’s neck.
[Let go.] Senia
By Senia-san’s words, Uragan-san releases Mel-san steps away from her.
Fighting is no good.
[Still, I misjudged you. No matter how strong that Bear Girl is, you left her alone with such monster.] Uragan
[Yuna-chan told us she would stay alone, so we couldn’t help it.] Mel
[We even tried to stop her from being reckless.] Jade
I also wanted to stop her.
But I couldn’t.
[Did the Bear Girl really defeated the Black Viper and Tiger Wolf alone?] Uragan
[You know that?] Jade
[There’s one guy in my party who knows about her. I heard a little bit from him. When I first heard it, I laughed with my nose. He said, [It’s dangerous to approach her.] [It’s better not to be involved,] or [Let’s get out of town.] And if you ask why, it will sound like a joke. So, when I got this request, I was surprised because there was the Bear Girl, and it looks like your party trusts her. Also I understand now that it’s not a lie after witnessing her killing that giant worm. However, even with these eyes, I can not believe that the Bear Girl is strong.] Uragan
[Yuna-chan said she will try to fight it, so we couldn’t help it.] Mel
[That’s why you never came back for her, If you think about it, naturally she would stay behind.] Uragan
[What’s so funny?] Uragan
[Because I didn’t think that you were so worried about Yuna-chan.] Mel
[…………Humph! That’s not it.] Uragan
Everyone began to laugh, because of Uragan-san’s funny attitude.
That’s right. When I first met him in the Adventurer’s Guild, I thought he was scary. But he did remember me, he apologized when he met me at home.
He might be thinking <Maybe she was the daughter of the client>, he may be a kind person, but his face is still scary.
[So, what’s the plan now?] Uragan
[Wait for Yuna.] Jade
[We have some free time then. Help us with the dismantling.] Uragan
Uragan-san quickly points his thumb behind him. He is pointing at Uragan-san’s party who are doing the dismantling work there.
[I hope the magician will help us as well. Of course, we will recalculate what we dismantled as a share.] Uragan
Jade-san and Mel-san nod when they look at each other’s faces.
[I got it. Senia take care of Karina.] Jade
[Leave it to me.] Senia
Senia-san responds and hugs Hugging Bear-chan.
Mel-san looks stunned, but she took both Jade-san and Toya-san’s hands, then went to the dismantling site.
[Hugging Bear-chan. Please tell us if you notice anything about Yuna-san.] Karina
Yuna-san, please come back safely.
And that was Karina’s viewpoint.
I wanted to write the warmth between Yuna and Karina.
While Karina is worried. Yuna is hugging Swaying Bear and sleeping.
The desert arc will soon come to an end.
