Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 329
Bear-san Returns to the Royal Capital.
After the cleaning, I went back and thanked Balima-san. I also told him that I paid half of it. Balima-san was a little disappointed, but he reluctantly said, [I understand].
I also told him that I will return to the capital in two days.
Tomorrow would be good, but when I think about the Bear Gate, I need to adjust the time. There was also a possibility that the date may have been written in the letter or my guild card.
The date of my departure should not be known by the King so that I can deceive him.
I don’t think the King and Balima-san would meet and talk about the date of my departure, so it’ll be okay.
The next day, I and Karina went to the place where we can get the eggs from the big bird.
I asked Rasa-san yesterday about where we can find the eggs. I said I wanted some, so I asked her to do me a favor. She said they would deliver the eggs to the mansion, but I wanted to see the birds, so I decided to go and get them myself.
It is said that the birds were being managed in the agricultural area on the other side of Balima-san’s residence. We walk towards the agricultural area while gazing at the lake. There were still many stalls around the lake.
[Everyone seems to be having fun.] Yuna
[This is all thanks to Yuna-san.] Karina
I heard that there were a lot of residents who were worried about the matter of water supply.
That’s when Balima-san’s announcement came and the city returned to life. Now, if the Kraken’s water magic stone ran out of water again, riots may occur.
But it’ll be alright, right?
I’m a little worried, but I’ll believe it’s okay. We did our best.
The Ojisan who owns the shop selling the spices, also came to the mansion to meet with Karina. It seems that he came to tell her that he will stay in the town. And he also seems to have made an apology.
But now I can confidently purchase the curry spices. That’s good.
After walking for some time while gazing at the scenery of the city, we can finally see the agricultural area.
[Yuna-san, over there.] Karina
There was a hut at the place where Karina was pointing, and I could see a large bird swimming in the lake beside the hut. Maybe that’s the big bird? (TC: probably not this one.)
I thought it was an ostrich at first, but it wasn’t.
It looks like a common duck swimming in the lake in front of me.
But it wasn’t the size of a duck I knew. It’s about the size of an ostrich.
There are sizes that allowed children to ride on their backs. As expected, different worlds and birds are mystical.
But do they lay eggs so much?
In my former world, every year the ducks migrate to different places, so it doesn’t seem like they’d be laying eggs that much… I’ve seen it on TV.
Well, it’s a different world, with a big difference in size, and it seems like they’re raising them.
[If it’s that big, Karina would be able to ride it.] Yuna
[Yes, I’ve been on one before. If you ask, you can ride on their backs.] Karina
[Is that so?] Yuna
[Adults are not allowed, but children are fine. I used to ride one and play well.] Karina
Oh, as an adult, I can’t ride it, but if it’s a child, like Fina, it should be okay. It might be nice to bring Fina next time.
[But you must be able to swim. You can fall into the lake, so the children who can’t swim back to the shore are not allowed to ride on it.] Karina
Isn’t that obvious?
If you fall, you will drown if you can’t swim.
Then, Fina who never got to swim before cannot ride it. But isn’t it okay since we’re having a swimming practice at the sea?
It’ll depend on Fina’s hard work.
Unfortunately, I’m an adult woman, so I can’t ride it.
A~, it’s too bad, I’m an adult.
[Do you want to ride one now Yuna-san?] Karina
Etto, what does that mean? I’m sure she’s making a mistake.
[You can ride one Yuna-san.] Karina
[I knew it.] Yuna
When said that, it made my heart become sad. I may not be a big adult, but I am not a child either.
When we arrived at the hut, we saw several men working. When they noticed us, they were surprised at how I look.
[Bear?…… Karina-sama?] Man
Their first line of sight was definitely on me. I’m a Bear, what about it?
Karina talked to the man who was wondering.
[I heard you have eggs to be delivered to our house, we came to get it. Do you have it?] Karina
Karina explained why we came here. Karina can talk better than I do, so I’ll leave it to her.
[If only you had told us earlier, we would have delivered it.] Man
The man respectfully talked to Karina.
After all, she’s the lord’s daughter so the citizens treat her politely.
The man took us inside the hut and guided us to where the eggs were.
[The eggs were laid yesterday.] Man
When I went into the back of the room, there were two eggs about the size of an ostrich egg. Just like what I had seen on TV.
How many normal eggs can fit in it?
What about the taste?
I’m looking forward to it.
[Can I really get both eggs?] Yuna
[Yes, please take it. Yuna-san will return to the capital tomorrow. Don’t worry, we’ll get it as well after waiting for a bit.] Karina
[Thank you.] Yuna
I paid the price of the eggs to the man, so now, I have the eggs of the big duck.
Karina said, <It’s okay because my father said he will pay for it>, but I’m the one who paid.
If it’s a souvenir, you have to buy it with your own money.
But now I have a good souvenir for the children of the orphanage and Fina. I’m looking forward to everyone’s surprised faces.
Shall I make a huge fried egg?
Or a lot of pudding?
What kind of food would be delicious?
We thanked the man and left the hut.
But that was one huge duck.
I want it, but it’s impossible since there was no place to raise it. It’s more like an ostrich. It’ll be impossible to make a place in which a duck, like that one, can live in Crimonia.
If I want eggs, I’ll come and buy them here.
Once we got the eggs, we went back to the mansion.
We finished eating lunch. So I’ll serve them a cake.
[It’s true,] Rasa
[Mother, it’s delicious!] Norris
[Fufu, it was really good.] Ristil
Everyone except Balima-san was eating cake inside Karina’s room.
I decided to eat a cake in Karina’s room, along with Ristil-san and Norris. Then Rasa-san prepared us some tea. In the end, I became friends with Norris.
However, he kept calling me [Bear-san].
This was because Ristil-san introduced me as a bear. Well, if he asked me what do I look like, I have no choice but to say [Bear]. I gave up on all the small children because they all call me [Bear-san].
By the way, Balima-san was busy working on the lake. I don’t know why he got more work, but he seems quite busy.
I’ll give Rasa-san some sacred tea for Balima-san. It can’t magically cure injuries, but he can recover strength and energy by drinking this tea. The effect had been proven by Cliff.
I don’t want him to overdo it, but it seems that the people of this world really love their jobs so much, so it can’t be helped.
It’s not something that I can think of since I am a Hikikomori at heart.
That night, I slept with Karina just like yesterday.
Of course, also I summoned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. I’ll return to the Royal Capital tomorrow, so I won’t be able to see Karina for a while.
If I just come and go as I please, they’ll get suspicious of me. So if I come here, it would be after when the sea trip was over.
The next morning, after we finished breakfast, I said my goodbyes.
[Yuna-san, please come again.] Karina
[Sure, I’ll come back.] Yuna
I pat Karina’s head.
[Please give my regards to Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan as well.] Karina
[Okay, but I’m sure you said goodbye last night and this morning as well.] Yuna
[Yes, but still, please tell them.] Karina
Karina was saying goodbye to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear last night before sleeping and in the morning when she woke up.
[Yuna-chan, thank you so much. Yuna-chan saved the city. Thank you for saving the future of this hungry child.] Ristil
Ristil-san touches her stomach.
[Please give birth safely.] Yuna
[He’s the third child, so he’ll be fine.] Ristil
When he’s born, I’ll have to bring something to celebrate.
The picture book will be too early, so I wonder if it’s good to give stuffed animals instead?
[Bear-san, are you going home?] Norris
[Yeah, I’m going now. Get along with your mom and sister.] Yuna
Norris looked lonely while holding Ristil-san’s hand.
He seems to like his mother, Ristil-san so much, but after he gets a younger brother or sister, will he be all right?
I heard that the youngest child would hate it when a new youngest child was born because the mother will have to give all of her attention to the new youngest child. Well, it’s the way the sibling thing works.
Let’s hope it’s okay.
[Thank you very much for your help this time. Thank you for the tea. Thanks to you, I’m feeling a lot better now.] Balima
Balima-san’s complexion was good. He must have been tired due to his mental fatigue. It seems that the sacred tree’s tea helped relieve his fatigue.
[Since you’re going to have a new member soon, you should do a moderate amount of work.] Yuna
[Yes, I cannot fall down from overworking. Also, please say hello to Follout-sama.] Balima
I made my promise.
Finally, I look at Rasa-san.
[Yuna-san. Next time, please teach me a new recipe. I will also study cooking even more.] Rasa
[Yes, I’ll bring you some good food when I come back.] Yuna
I was sent off by everyone and left the mansion.
Karina tried to see me off the city gate, but I politely refused. If she followed me, I won’t be able to use the Bear Gate.
I apologized to Karina in my heart, then I went to the house I bought yesterday. Of course, I made sure to check the area around it before heading inside.
The Bear Gate was installed in the warehouse.
And so, I opened the door and returned to Royal Capital.
5 volumes had been released.
I went to a bookstore. But I didn’t found it.
Was the arrival delayed?
This marks the end of the Desert Arc…
Next chapter, Ocean Arc, aka. loli-bikini arc.
Bear-bikini arc? Maybe… Don’t lose hope!
