Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 326
Bear-san, Reports to Balima Part 2
After switching the magic stones, we returned to the city. However, after entering the town, while we were walking towards Balima-san’s residence, the atmosphere of the town felt different.
First, the people who pass each other are quite a few. I’m not proud of it, but whenever I walked down the street, I attracted the people’s line of sights.
But it suddenly decreased.
[What’s going on?] Yuna
[I don’t know.] Karina
We hurried back to the mansion so we went near the lake. There was a crowd around the lake. Everyone was looking at the lake.
[What the hell is that?] Resident A
[Did you notice that the water has increased somehow?] Resident B
[But it was lesser than this just a while ago and it increased all of a sudden? I don’t think anyone was expecting that.] Resident C
Well, that’s true, if you think about it normally.
Other than that, I can’t think of any reason as to why people are gathering at the lake. But even if Karina says there’s more water now, I didn’t expect that the lake’s water would’ve increased enough to be noticed it so easily.
It should’ve taken a few days for someone to notice it. Even if I saw it, I’m not sure what to say.
[Bear? Karina-sama?] Resident D
One of the residents noticed Karina.
To be precise, he noticed Karina because he became aware of my existence. Other residents who heard Karina’s name turned their eyes to us.
[Karina-sama, what happened to the water in the lake?] Resident E
[Balima-sama told us to wait for a while, but how did this happen? Has the lake returned to its original state?] Resident F
[Karina-sama!] Resident G
The residents approached us. I took one step forward to protect Karina.
[I can’t answer it right now. But what happened? I’ve been out of town until now, so I don’t know why everyone is at the lake.] Karina
[The water level, the water column came up.] Resident A
The residents excitedly replied.
A water column, is that a water pillar? Like water spouts?
[Everyone gathered at the lake because they thought the water of the lake might have returned. Some of them went to ask Balima-sama, but they told us to wait for a while.] Resident H
Uh, the water pillars?
If you think about it, it’s related to the switching of the magic stones, right?
I can’t come up with anything else. When I looked at Karina, she’s thinking a little bit.
[I understand, I think you’ll be able to hear from my father soon. Until then, please be patient and wait for a little longer.] Karina
Karina bowed her head to the residents and began to walk quickly. I also chased her after that.
[Karina, what’s going on?] Yuna
[I’ll report the details to my father first before we can talk about it. Father is waiting for our report. If we’re late, the residents may rush out of their homes.] Karina
Karina said so and ran.
When we reached the mansion, there was a crowd.
[There’s already a lot of people here.] Karina
[Yes, we can’t go in with this.] Yuna
I think the reason for their gathering was the same as earlier. It’s like they’re waiting to hear Balima-san’s announcement. Unlike the residents around the lake, it feels like they are angry mobs. It’s dangerous if we get too close, so we can only watch them from a distance.
[They’re all quiet though.] Yuna
The residents were not violent, only looking at the mansion.
However, it will be difficult to sneak in, this is troublesome. For the time being, I told Karina to wear the coat hood that protects her against the heat.
[Yuna-san, what should we do?] Karina
I think we can go and get through them normally, but we might get surrounded. There are people surrounding the mansion even if we try to enter from the back.
[This can’t be helped.] Yuna
I hold Karina in my arms.
[Yuna-san, what are you doing?] Karina
[Karina, hold on tightly.] Yuna
I started running while Karina was being <princess carried> in my arms. And I jumped with a boost from running.
The residents turned their sights to the source of the voice.
[What was that?] Mob A
[It’s a bird?] Mob B
[No, it’s a bear!] Mob C
[It’s a bear?] Mob D
[It’s a flying bear!] Mob E
While the residents were shouting, I jumped over the residents and over the wall, then landed on the other side of the wall.
The landing was beautifully executed and the image that a lot of 10.0’s were lined up floating on the judge’s heads. If I have the Bear Equipment, it’s not a dream to win multiple gold medals at the Olympics. Well, it’s a foul, no matter how you look at it.
On the other side of the wall, [The bear flew!], [Bears doesn’t fly you know.], [It was absolutely a bear.], and [Bears can’t fly!] can be heard.
The faction that saw me and the faction that didn’t saw me were having a big argument. Also, some people may not understand depending on the angle.
In the first place, I am impressed that they have found out that I am a bear in that short moment.
I put Karina down.
[Yuna-san, next time please tell me if you’re going to fly before you actually fly. It was very scary.] Karina
Karina was standing on the ground and her feet were shaking.
[Did you leak?] Yuna
[I did not leak!] Karina
Karina is hitting me with <pokapokapoka> sound. Looks fine to me.
I apologized to Karina, then we entered the mansion.
When we entered the mansion, Rasa-san was waiting for us, she then immediately guided us to Balima-san’s office.
[Karina, welcome home.] Ristil
Balima-san along with Ristil-san and their son Norris was there.
[Father, Mother, I’m back. But, I would like to ask you something. I heard that the water column has risen, is that true?] Karina
[Oh, but first, I want you to tell me your report before I explain it to you.] Balima
[I… I understand.] Karina
Karina successfully replaced the water magic stone. The water sprang up properly and it made the people started talking about having the water returned to the way it used to be.
[I see, Karina. You’ve had a lot of trouble this time.] Balima
[No, it’s because I originally dropped the crystal plate map.] Karina
[Yuna-san as well, thank you very much. If it hadn’t for Yuna-san coming here and bringing the Kraken magic stone to us, this city would still be in trouble.] Balima
Balima-san deeply lowered his head.
[So, Father. What about the water column?] Karina
I don’t know what it is, but it seems like Karina knew about it.
[I believe Karina knows that there’s a festival once a year.] Balima
[Yes, The lake spouts like a fountain and it rains all over the city.] Karina
[That’s right! That didn’t happen for a while though because the city was in a turmoil.] Balima
[But the festival is…] Karina
[There’s a reason for that to happen.] Balima
Balima-san said that this town has an annual festival. At that time, it seems that water always blows up like a geyser, then it rains around the lake and throughout the city.
In the past, the purpose was to clean the silver cup with gratitude.
To clean the cup, they have to stop the magic circuit for a short time. Then, once the magic circuit was reactivated, water spouts like a geyser.
It later became a festival of the city and at the same time, it was to show off the power of the (Ishrit Family) as the lord.
Well this time, the magic circuit had to be stopped to switch the magic stones and the water was ejected by restarting the magic circuit. The residents who saw it gathered at the lake and the others gathered at Balima-san’s house to hear the reason.
[And now that Karina has returned, we’ll make an announcement about this at the square. I’m relieved to be able to announce that the lake is back.] Balima
Maybe there were various complaints and discontent.
Maybe, I don’t know. It’s scary to imagine.
Balima-san stands up to explain this incident to the residents. At the same time, the Mother, Ristil-san, also stood up.
[I will go as well.] Ristil
Ristil-san is pregnant.
[However, my stomach is…] Ristil
[It’s alright. You might get injured there. I’m going to make a good announcement this time, so there’s no danger.] Balima
[If so, I will go as well.] Karina
[Me too……] Norris
[Karina and Norris… I see. Let’s go together.] Balima
I thought of something and decided to keep an eye on it.
Then in the city square, Balima-san announced that the lake had been restored. The city comes to life. Stalls lined up in front of the lake and it was a festive event everywhere.
It’s a secret to everyone but I am hiding, if I’d get caught by the kids then it’ll be a big problem for me.
[Yuna-san, let’s go and look around.] Karina
[Karina, you’re still energetic? Even after everything that happened today?.] Yuna
(TN: [antxlee] [Herpiderp] [Philip] Credits to these guys.)
[I’m not tired because I was riding on Swaying Bear-chan.] Karina
We’ve been riding on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, so we’re not tired.
I was tired from all other sorts of things though.
[And I’m excited that the water is back.] Karina
Karina grabbed me by my Bear Puppet and dragged me around.
[Come on, Yuna-san, let’s go!] Karina
I headed to where the commotion was, with Karina.
That night, I was mentally tired, I prepared to sleep. My body isn’t really tired, but Karina took me there.
I was wearing a Bear Costume, I met Jade-san there and I was mentally tired from everything.
I changed into a white bear and summoned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in cub form. As usual, it feels good. It feels like my fatigue is melting away just by holding Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
I got my energy back by hugging Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, so I entered the futon (bed).
Then there was a knock on the door.
[Yuna-san, are you awake?] Karina
[Karina? Yes, I’m awake.] Yuna
After opening the door, Karina comes in with a pillow.
[What’s wrong? ] Yuna
[Can I sleep with you?] Karina
[Well, I don’t mind.] Yuna
Karina happily climbs on the bed. There’s no way I can refuse since she even brought her own pillow.
[Yuna-san is white.] Karina
Karina saw my white bear version for the first time.
[I wear this whenever I go to bed.] Yuna
That’s how I normally wear it. A white bear that takes away the fatigue is the best substitute for pajamas.
[It’s cute.] Karina
[Karina looks pretty too.] Yuna
Karina is also wearing a cute white sleepwear.
Much cuter than me.
[Yuna-san, are you going home tomorrow? Then, can I say goodbye to Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.] Karina
Karina started petting Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
Am I not included?
Bear-san will cry, you know?
[I’ll miss you since I won’t be able to see you.] Karina
I’m glad that I was included.
[I will come again.] Yuna
[Yeah, I’ll come to see Karina when I’m going to buy spices.] Yuna
If I install a Bear Gate, I can come here in an instant. It’s a hassle though because I have to think about the place to install it.
[Really? You promise? I’ll be waiting for you!] Karina
[I promise.] Yuna
To my words, Karina, who had a dark look, suddenly turned into a flowery smile.
[Swaying Bear-chan, Hugging Bear-chan. Let’s get together again!] Karina
[Uh, but I’ll be lonely after all.] Karina
Karina embraced Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
[Then I’ll give you something good.] Yuna
[Something good?] Karina
I took out the bear plushies of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear from the Bear Box. When Karina saw it, her eyes widened and just kept staring at the stuffed animals.
[Uh, what’s this?] Karina
[It’s a bear plush toy. It’s popular with the kids, you know.] Yuna
Karina lifts the bear plush toy.
[Are you giving it to me?] Karina
[Take care of it.] Yuna
[Thank you.] Karina
Karina hugs the Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies. Next to her, were the real Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear that had been set aside. I felt sad because I have lost another set of stuffed animals.
[But what should I do? If I hold the plushies, I can’t hold Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.] Karina
[In that case, why don’t we hold Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear tonight?] Yuna
[Yes, let’s do that!] Karina
Karina gets out of bed and puts her stuffed animals on the table. When she comes back, she hugged Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, then falls down on the bed.
[Yuna-san, please tell me your story.] Karina
[My story?] Yuna
[Yes, tell me about the city where Yuna-san lives, where you went, what monsters you’ve fought.] Karina
[Hmm, that’s right………] Yuna
I started to tell a little story.
After talking for a while, I heard a quiet sleeping sound next to me. Apparently, she fell asleep. Karina firmly hugged Swaying Bear unconsciously. When I called Hugging Bear who looks lonely, I hugged him.
[Good night.] Yuna
I also went to sleep to get rid of today’s fatigue.
All that’s left are to set up a Bear Gate and go home.
This has become longer than expected.
Next time, the post may be delayed by one day.
