Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 339
Bear-san, Sleeps Twice.
Credits to: valiant
The next day, I was woken up by Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear alarm clocks. I don’t oversleep because I have two alarm clocks. However, if I don’t wake up, they will not stop waking me up and try even harder until I do so.
At first, it’s just a gentle tap. If I don’t wake up, the petchipetchi will gradually become stronger. If I still don’t wake up, the two of them will climb on my stomach. And in the end, they will cover my face. More importantly, I want them to stop it because it is really painful.
Today, I was able to get up when Swaying Bear dived onto my stomach.
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, good morning.] Yuna
I got up while rubbing my sleepy eyes. I’m going to go to the Adventurers Guild today and give them the scorpions.
Well, I’m still sleepy. It’s still dim outside. It’s been a long time since I woke up this early. Some people who are early in the morning may get up and work. But it’s too early for me.
What about breakfast?
It feels too early for it. I consulted with my stomach. Well then, I’ll eat breakfast after I come back from the Adventurers Guild. I change from a white bear to a black bear and call on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear
[Well then, let’s go!] Yuna
When I left the Bear House, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in cub form followed me with tokotoko. (trotting sfx)
Sometimes when I get up early, I take a walk with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. If it’s this early morning, no one will be surprised because there are no people, so no one will come near us.
While I’m on my way to the Adventurer’s Guild walking like so, I was greeted by an old woman whom I knew the face, yet I don’t know the name. I also replied, <Good morning>. The old woman also greets Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear replied with <Ku-n>.
There are many people around my house who knew about me, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, therefore, she was not surprised that I’m walking in the neighborhood with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in their cub form.
I did a small yawn with and stretched my arms a little. It feels good in the morning, though I can’t help feeling sleepy. I want to make Swaying Bear bigger and get on his back.
While thinking about it, the Adventurers Guild came into view. In front of the Adventurers Guild are Gentz-san and Fina.
[Good morning to both of you.] Yuna
[Good morning.] Fina
[You came without being late.] Gentz
[I have these bears to wake me up.] Yuna
I crouched down, then I pet the heads of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear next to me. They’re the most powerful alarm clocks.
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, good morning.] Fina
Fina rubbed the heads of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear at the same time.
[It’s not a good place to talk right here, let’s move inside. You don’t want to be seen, right? That’s why you’re here this early in the morning.] Gentz
Yes, that’s right. It would be a problem if someone saw me.
We went around the back of the guild and entered the dismantler’s warehouse through the back door.
[Well then, please hand it over.] Gentz
As I promised yesterday, I took out 10 Scorpions from the Bear Box.
[How nostalgic.] Gentz
[Is that so?] Yuna
[Oh, I’ve been dismantling a lot of these when I was an adventurer, but not so much since I started working in the guild.] Gentz
[“Not so much”, so does this mean you’ve received some before?] Yuna
[Occasionally, some adventurers bring it back here. So it may cause quite a bit of a fuss this time, but it shouldn’t be as intense as what Jo-chan thinks.] Gentz
Well, even if they made a fuss, I wouldn’t mind as long as they didn’t know I was the one who brought them all.
[And so, we will take the shells.] Gentz
[That’s fine. I want the meat to be separated.] Yuna
I just want to taste it. Maybe it’s delicious like shrimps or crabs. It might be good to ask Anzu and Morin-san to see if they can cook it.
[Okay. I’ll bring it to your house when we’re done.] Gentz
[Although I can come back later.] Yuna
[Then it doesn’t make sense that you’re hiding if you’re going picking it up anyways. Do you want to hide or to be known? Make up your mind!] Gentz
Ah, that’s right. It would be suspicious if I came to pick it up.
[Then, can I ask you to deliver it?] Yuna
[Yeah, I don’t mind.] Gentz
As a result of our talk, the Scorpion’s meat will be delivered to my home.
[Well then, Fina. I’ll tell you the basics while we’re waiting for the other staffs to come, so watch carefully.] Gentz
Gentz-san takes out the knife and approaches the scorpion.
[Yes, Dad.] Fina
Fina is now used to call Gentz-san her father. I miss the days when she used to call him Uncle Gentz.
[Well then, I’ll head back home.] Yuna
[By the way, if you kill another rare monster like a scorpion, bring it to me.] Gentz
In that case, I have a boss-type sandworm, a boss-type Scorpion, and some Wyverns. I would like to take it out of the Bear Box and look at Gentz-san’s surprised face, but I don’t want to cause chaos, so I restrained myself.
I parted with Gentz-san and Fina and went back to the Bear House because I have a lot of time until my next agenda for the day.
Today, I’m going to the tailoring shop where Sherry works.
Yesterday, I met Sherry on the way home from the Adventurers Guild. She said that when she heard from the orphanage that I had returned, she was on her way to the Bear House to see me. And the reason why she wanted to see me was that the swimsuits were finished.
Come to think of it, what happened to my swimsuit?
I don’t remember choosing a swimsuit. If she hasn’t finished it, then it’s fine. The secret size of my body was measured by Sherry. Sherry also said she would make it, so I don’t think there’s anything she didn’t make.
If she made it from the illustrations I’ve drawn, I think it’ll basically be fine. I just hope it’s not a school swimsuit.
I’m going to Sherry today, in addition to checking my swimsuit.
But it’s too early to go to the store. There’s still time until the shop opens. So I decided to go back to the Bear House and sleep a second time. I couldn’t help but yawn since a while back.
When I came back to the Bear House, I forgot to eat breakfast and simply fell onto the bed as a Black Bear. Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear also curled up next to me when I get on the bed. As soon as I hugged Swaying Bear, I felt very sleepy.
I feel something is shaking me.
[…… wake up.] ??
My body was shaking even more.
[Yuna-oneechan, wake up.] ??
[Swaying Bear?] Yuna
[Nope~. ] ??
[Hugging Bear?] Yuna
[Nope~. It’s Shuri.] Shuri
When I opened my eyes, Shuri was riding on top of me. (TC: FBI OPEN UP!!)
When I get up, Shuri comes down from me.
[Why are you here Shuri?] Yuna
[I went to the Adventurer’s Guild because I was done helping my mom with work. Then, my dad doesn’t want to let me learn how to dismantle the <Sukorpion>, he said it was too early for me. So I came to ask Yuna-oneechan, but you’re sleeping.] Shuri
No, the Scorpion dismantling is still too early for Shuri. In the first place, it’s too early even for Fina. However, Fina has many years of dismantling experience. Shuri doesn’t have it.
[I also think it’s too early for Shuri.] Yuna
[Even Yuna-oneechan is saying that too? I can do it!] Shuri
Shuri pouts her tiny mouth.
[I don’t think you can. Even Fina will dismantle it for the first time. So it’s too early, Shuri will have to wait until you’re 10 years old.] Yuna
Even so, 10 years old is still too early. I’m a 15-year-old adventurer, but I can’t dismantle it. Considering that, Shuri is more amazing than me.
[I want to grow up quickly.] Shuri
[You don’t have to hurry that much, it’s okay.] Yuna
I put my hand on Shuri’s head.
[By the way, what time is it now?] Yuna
[It’s already past lunchtime.] Shuri
What was that you said, Shuri-san?
[I thought I heard you said it’s lunchtime. I might have heard you wrong.] Yuna
[It’s after lunchtime.] Shuri
I didn’t hear it wrong.
Apparently, I went to bed and slept until noon. I have an appointment with Sherry.
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear why didn’t you wake me up?] Yuna
I saw Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, playing on the bed. Certainly, I didn’t ask them to wake me up, but it would be great if they did. I stared at Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear with a slight grudge.
Don’t they know how I feel?
They’re tilting their heads and crying, <Ku-n>.
For the time being, I have to get ready to go out. I haven’t decided when to meet Sherry. She’s supposed to be waiting for me.
[Shuri, thank you for waking me up.] Yuna
If Shuri didn’t wake me up, I’d still be in the dreamland.
[Un, because the door is open, so I thought Yuna-oneechan was here, but you were sleeping.] Shuri
If I’m not here, the Bear House’s doors won’t open. If I’m here, then Fina and Shuri could come in without permission. Others cannot enter unless I open the door.
So only Fina and Shuri can wake me up.
When I get out of the bed, I took the bread out from the Bear Box and stuffed it in my mouth. Then swallowed it without chewing it.
[Yuna-oneechan. That’s bad manners.] Shuri
I was scolded by Shuri.
[I’m in a bit of a hurry, so it’s only today.] Yuna
I made excuses and prepared to go out. I thought I would return Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, but Shuri is holding them.
[I’m going out. Shuri, are you staying here?] Yuna
Then, I’ll leave Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear as her playmates.
[Yuna-oneechan. Are you going somewhere?] Shuri
[I have an appointment with Sherry, so I’m going to the tailoring shop. Do you want to come with me?] Yuna
[Is that okay?] Shuri
[Yeah, no problem. I’m just going to check the swimsuits.] Yuna
[Well then, I will go with you.] Shuri
Shuri happily replied.
I returned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to the Bear Puppets and then I went to see Sherry together with Shuri.
Happy New Year!
Thank you for supporting Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear again this year.
The shell of the scorpion was sold to the guild. I think that it’ll be good if this shell got passed to Shin, the new adventurer. But if I were to write the story in a book, when would it be?
Next time, we’re finally checking out the swimsuit.
I was working on a book while taking a break from the web version.
