Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 320
Bear-san Gets the Crystal Plate.
After getting out of the ground, I looked around.
[Um, here?] Yuna
When I looked behind me, there was the pyramid. But there’s no entrance. Apparently, I am at the backside of the pyramid.
Is everyone at that side?
I went through great lengths of killing the Scorpion, just to see that there’s nobody here to welcome me.
Using the Bear Detection Magic, I found multiple human reactions near the entrance of the pyramid.
I closed the hole where I climbed. I summoned Swaying Bear, climbed on his back and went to the entrance of the pyramid.
Swaying Bear, dashes in the desert with <tokotoko>.
There were only 5 reactions picked-up by the Detection Magic. I can’t see Uragan when I searched.
Did he finished dismantling and returned to the city?
While riding around the pyramid on Swaying Bear, a white thing was coming from the front with a great speed.
It’s a Bear!
No, it’s Hugging Bear.
Hugging Bear who’s carrying Karina, was dashing in the desert with sand cloud behind him. There’s the figure of Karina, who’s doing her best to not fall off.
Well, you won’t fall even if you don’t cling to him, but it seems that Karina doesn’t look so good.
I got off Swaying Bear.
If this keeps up, Hugging bear and Swaying Bear will collide with each other.
[Hugging Bear. Stop, Stop! STOP!!] Yuna
Hugging Bear slows down and stops, then he rubs his face against me.
<Kuu ~ n, Kuu ~ n>
[Hugging Bear, I’m back.] Yuna
I stroke Hugging Bear’s head and scratch his chin. Hugging Bear is very happy.
[You’ve properly protected Karina. Thank you.] Yuna
While I was holding onto Hugging Bear, Karina looked at me while clinging onto Hugging Bear.
After she descends from Hugging Bear, Karina embraces me.
[Yuna-san, you were safe. I was so worried.] Karina
Hugging Bear rubs his face against me.
In addition, Karina hugs me as well.
[Both of you, calm down.] Yuna
I can’t take it anymore and fall on my back. Of course, I could push them back if I really want to, but I can’t do that to Karina and Hugging Bear.
When I fall on my back, they fall on top of me.
Swaying Bear looks at me.
[Swaying Bear, sa~ve me~e.] Yuna
When I asked Swaying Bear for help, he just cried <Kun-n> and doesn’t try to help me.
In the meantime, I told the two of them to get up and help me stand up.
I seem to have caused a lot of worry.
[I am glad you’re safe.] Karina
Karina has tears in her eyes.
While I’m patting her head and comforting her, Jade-san and the others come riding on the Ragaroot.
[Hugging Bear-chan suddenly ran off, so I thought something must’ve happened.] Mel
[I was surprised when Hugging Bear started running.] Senia
Jade-san, Mel-san and Senia-san came.
However, Toya is not here.
[Etto, I just returned.] Yuna
[So why is Yuna here outside? We were waiting for you at the entrance.] Jade
[It’s a hassle to go back the way we came from, so I dug a hole with magic.] Yuna
[In just a short time.] Mel
Mel-san has an amazed expression.
I feel that I had a similar exchange before.
[So did you defeat the monster?] Jade
[Yeah, I already did.] Yuna
Everyone was surprised at my word.
[So then, Jade-san and the others, can I ask you to dismantle it? Of course, I’ll compensate you for it.] Yuna
I can’t dismantle it. But, I can’t take it back to Crimonia and ask Fina.
Though once we got back to the city, I can just ask Balima-san to hire someone to dismantle it. That is, until they see the Scorpion.
It’ll become troublesome in various ways. So I should just ask Jade-san and the others who already knew about the Scorpion.
[You don’t need to compensate us. It’s enough to have the experience of dismantling that monster.] Jade
[Even if we’ve experienced it, I don’t think we’re going to dismantle that kind of monster again in the future.] Mel
Jade-san and his party are willing to accept the dismantling job.
We will move to the entrance of the pyramid to do the dismantling. When I try to ride Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear sadly cried <Kuun-n>.
Hugging Bear doesn’t want to let go of me.
It looks like he wants me to ride him.
[Hugging Bear-chan. It was fine if it was at the beginning, but I’ll be lonely if you leave me half way.] Karina
Today I asked Hugging Bear to escort Karina, so I didn’t ride him.
[Karina, can you ride on Swaying Bear this time?] Yuna
[Y-yes. I understand. Swaying Bear-chan, please.] Karina
Swaying Bear gladly obeyed. Karina climbed on him.
Yeah, I’m glad Swaying Bear wasn’t selfish.
Even though they both want me to ride them, I only have one body.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear were also saving me from trouble. When I ride on Hugging Bear, he runs happily.
Karina is riding on Swaying Bear.
[Wai, please wait.] Jade
Jade-san and the others followed.
When we arrived at the entrance of the pyramid, Toya stood there alone.
[You guys are so cruel. Leaving me behind.] Toya
[Because Hugging Bear-chan suddenly started running.] Mel
[You were sleeping.] Senia
Mel-san and Senia-san gave Toya a cold treatment .
But he was sleeping while people were fighting?
However, I can’t really say that myself because I was sleeping until a while ago.
[I can’t help it. I’m tired of dismantling.] Toya
[Well, everyone feels the same.] Senia
Toya looks at Jade-san for help.
[Ah sorry, I forgot.] Jade
Toya’s cry echoed throughout the desert.
Well, I left Toya alone and decided to look around.
[Um, what about Uragan and his party?] Yuna
They didn’t show in my Detection Magic earlier, so I asked them.
[They’ve finished dismantling, so they went back to the city. At first I said something like wait for Yuna-chan, but it seems like they’re too tired from dismantling.] Mel
[We helped with the dismantling as well.] Toya
So Toya got tired and went to sleep.
Well, before that, he might have been tired from fighting monsters or being on high alert all the time.
When you think about it, Jade-san and the others are amazing.
[So Yuna, where do you want to dismantle it? You have it, don’t you?] Jade
I nod to Jade-san’s words. They already know that I have a high capacity item bag that can fit the Black Viper and big worm inside.
[If we’re outside, the sand will stick to it, is it better inside that pyramid?] Jade
[That’s right. We have to make sure that it’s safe and wide enough.] Mel
I don’t have a problem with that.
Nodding to Jade-san’s proposal, the dismantling site was moved to the area near the entrance of the labyrinth.
When we arrived at the entrance of the labyrinth, I took out the big Scorpion from the Bear Box.
[You really killed it.] Jade
[Uwah, it’s so big.] Toya
Everyone goes around the Scorpion.
[It doesn’t have a tail. Did you cut it?] Mel
[There’s a knife in it’s back.] Senia
Senia-san, who was searching the back of the Scorpion, noticed.
But it didn’t do much damage.
[But where’s the fatal wound?] Senia
[It’s the tail, isn’t it?] Toya
[If you can kill it with just cutting the tail off, no one will have a hard time.] Senia
[Then how did she kill it?] Mel
Everyone’s eyes turned to me.
[That’s a little bit…] Yuna
Everyone’s gaze hurts.
I can’t really say that I drowned it in seawater using the Bear Gates.
When it entered the Bear Box, the seawater seems to have been excluded and the Scorpion was not wet either. However, there is a possibility that the seawater is in its body.
I didn’t think of it too much.
I hope the sea water doesn’t come out from it.
I prayed to God.
The Bear God who seemed to have brought me to this world came to mind.
Very unlikely to be reliable.
[But Yuna-san, this really is such a big monster…] Karina
Karina tried to touch the Scorpion with her frightened little hands.
Looking at such figure, a mischievous mind springs up.
I gently and quietly move behind Karina and close in at her ear, then…
Karina sat down in her surprise.
[Are you okay? ] Yuna
[Yu- Yuna-san…..] Karina
Karina looks at me with teary eyes.
I think I did a little too much.
[Yuna-san, is so terrible. I thought I was going to die.] Karina
[Sorry, sorry. When I saw Karina, who was cautiously trying to touch it, it’s so cute, I just can’t help it.] Yuna
[No, it’s not funny. I was really scared. I thought I was going to die.] Karina
[Did you wet yourself by any chance?] Yuna
I asked in a small voice.
Karina blushes in my words.
[No I did not! I don’t know Yuna-san anymore!] Karina
Looks like she’s really angry.
It was just a joke, but it failed splendidly.
[Karina, I’m sorry. Karina was just so cute.] Yuna
[I don’t want to be told that by Yuna-san, who’s wearing such a cute outfit.] Karina
Karina doesn’t want to face me.
It’s difficult to handle a 10 year old girl.
How was I when I was 10 years old?
I might need a memory jog.
Yeah, I was a pretty girl. Its true!…….
[I want to quickly start the dismantling.] Jade
Jade-san and his party, were looking at us with dumbfounded face.
[[I’m sorry.]] Karina & Yuna
Me and Karina bowed down and apologized to Jade-san’s group.
[So we just need to take out what Karina is looking for?] Jade
[I don’t mind.] Yuna
Karina looks at me.
Certainly, the dismantling of the Scorpion is not included in this request.
[It’s fine because it’ll take a lot of time. I’ll do that when I return to Crimonia.] Yuna
I really want to ask them, but.
Even if I ask Fina, it is unlikely that she can do it alone.
If I ask Gentz-san or the Adventurer’s Guild, it will turn into chaos if they saw the Scorpion, so it’s better to ask Jade-san and his friends.
But it would take some time to dismantle the big Scorpion. Therefore, the crystal plate takes priority today.
[Karina. Do you know where it is?] Jade
When asked by Jade-san, Karina approached the Scorpion.
And she walks around it.
[It’s around here.] Karina
She points behind the Scorpion, near the tail.
[Here? Then we have to remove this shell. Toya help me remove the shell here.] Jade
The Scorpion has a shell that’s connected together, similar to the crayfish and shrimp, the tail is bend.
And there were grooves at the joint.
Jade-san was instructed to remove the second shell from the back. When Jade-san and Toya took out their knives, they stabbed it into the groove.
[It’s too hard] Toya
[Senia and Mel we need your help.] Jade
[Can’t help it then.] Mel
4 people worked together to take off that part of the shell.
Again, looking at the shell, it is almost 10cm thick. It’s not enough to stab it lightly with a knife.
Jade-san dismantles as Karina directed, revealing a pale blue crystal plate.
[Th, that’s it!] Karina
Karina runs happily and receives the crystal plate.
Of course, Mel-san washed it with water before handing it over.
It was good that the seawater did not came out.
If it came out, the explanation will be long and troublesome.
[This ends the request.] Jade
[But this shell is really hard.] Toya
Toya was banging it hard.
[That’s right. It’s even lighter than iron and might be perfect for making armors.] Senia
In the game, you can make armors with the materials of the monster you defeated. Now, what kind of armor can you make with what’s in front of you?
[Of course, I’m good with a light armor.] Toya
[It may be even lighter.] Senia
[Then, I’ll give the peeled shell to you and your party Jade-san.] Yuna
[Are you sure?!] Toya
Toya was the one who’s pleased, not Jade-san.
I don’t need it anyways.
[No, we can’t accept this. This was defeated by Yuna.] Jade
[Jade, Jō-chan was about to give it to us.] Toya
Toya was the one who want it the most.
[Then will you please listen to me?] Yuna
[A request? ] Jade
[Can you not tell anyone that I have defeated this Scorpion.] Yuna
[Why not? Don’t you want to report it to the adventurer guild?] Jade
[I won’t. If I report it, it will be a hefty lot of trouble.] Yuna
[I don’t get it. You should be proud of it.] Toya
[If Yuna-chan doesn’t want us to tell anyone, then we won’t tell anyone. If you don’t want it then go ahead and tell everyone.] Mel
[No, I want it.] Toya
Everyone looked at Toya.
[I won’t talk, even if I don’t receive the shell.] Toya
I wonder about that. Unlike Jade-san, you can’t trust Toya’s words.
Jade-san thinks deeply.
[But then you have to ask Uragan and his party as well.] Jade
[Does Uragan knew about the Scorpion?] Yuna
[Oh, when he heard that Yuna wasn’t here with us, I told him that you were left behind fighting that.] Jade
If so, do we need to shut him up?
[Well, let’s talk about that after we return.] Yuna
I put the Scorpion back in the Bear Box, including the shell that they removed.
After that, we’re going to use the crystal plate map to replace the magic stones, but that would still be a secret.
And besides, it’s almost time for the sun to set.
We need to temporarily return and report to Balima-san.
She asked Jade to dismantle the Scorpion and successfully retrieved the crystal plate.
It may be a necessary skill for adventurers.
It seems that the reservation of 5 volumes has begun.
The cover is white Yuna and Hugging Bear. It is a pure white combination.
Please wait a while for information on store benefits.
I will report as soon as I get the news of it.
