Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 341
Bear-san Holds A Solo Swimsuit Fashion Show.
Credits to: Philip, valiant.
After returning from Sherry’s workplace, I fell to my bed.
[I’m so tired~.] Yuna
I’m mentally tired. I was surprised at the white school swimsuit, especially the bear’s tail. At the very least, salvation is that the children will be the ones wearing the bear swimsuit.
To be honest, I wanted her to stop. But I can’t say it after seeing Shuri’s face, which seems to be very happy. I summoned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in their cub form, they’re so fluffy and soft that can restore my damaged mental health. After playing with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear my mental health was recovered, so I lined up the swimsuits that Sherry made on the bed. I slowly moved the school swimsuit to the edge. It was not something an adult like me would wear. I look at the remaining swimsuit, from the bikini and skirt to the one-piece that I drew in the illustration.
U~n, I don’t know which one is better.
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear. Which do you think is better?] Yuna
I asked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear which is better. But Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear uninterestingly looked at the swimsuits on the bed. Then, after crying [Ku~n], they curled up on the bed.
They don’t seem to be interested in looking at me wearing my swimsuit. Well, whether they did or not, I would still be troubled. Having zero interest is just sad.
In other words, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are not reliable this time, so I have to decide for myself.
I looked at my swimsuits and picked up a black and white bikini. Then, I took off my Bear Costume and put on the bikini swimsuit.
What’s this? This feeling that the size fits perfectly? I stand in front of the mirror. Does it look good on me? Though I am concerned about a certain part, I will ignore it. I tried to pose a little, but I don’t know if it suits me.
I silently pick up my next swimsuit. After taking off my two-piece swimsuit, I’m now wearing a one-piece swimsuit. But my legs feel uncomfortable on all of the swimsuits. I put on a pareo, it’s a little better. This time my shoulders feel cold. I want a haori. I put a large towel over my shoulder. It calmed me down. If I could cover my body with a larger towel, I could relax.
(Disclaimer: I’m not endorsing anything, it’s just an example of [Haori].)
Aw, forget it. There was no way a shut-in like me who had never swum anywhere other than the school pool could choose a swimsuit. At my level, picking a swimsuit was too high of a hurdle. You might think that I just had to naturally pick my favorite swimsuit, but it wasn’t natural for me. It was too hard for someone like me who had no experience.
If this would be the swimsuits of Fina and Noa, I can judge if they are cute or if it looks good on them. But when it comes to me, none of them look good.
It might be better to raise the white flag obediently and have Tirumina-san choose for me. If I ask Fina, she would simply say, <They all look good on you>.
By the way, if I ask Shuri and Noa, they’ll choose some ridiculous swimsuit, so I’m not going to ask them.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are sleeping. I ended my solo swimwear fashion show and don in my Bear Costume. The moment I wear my Bear Costume, I felt relieved. To think I couldn’t pick a single swimsuit yet feel relieved when I’m wearing a bear suit, I think I’m done as a woman.
I silently put my swimsuit in the Bear Box, then lay in between Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
I had time until the appointed day. I could take my time to think about it. In life, postponing the troublesome stuff is also one way to go. Time heals all wounds too. Would it now? I hoped so. I would entrust this chore to my future self in a few days.
In the evening. Gentz-san delivered the Scorpion meat.
Yeah, I totally forgot. I had so much mental damage today that I completely forgot about the Scorpion. For the time being, I received it and thanked him. Does it taste like a shrimp?
However, I didn’t have the courage to taste it, so I put it into Bear Box. Although I feel sorry for Gentz-san, I asked him to give it to Anzu and Morin-san too. I have no energy to move today.
The next day, I forgot about my swimsuit (I decided not to think about it) and was simply sprawling in my house.
Is there anything else we need to bring to Mereera?
Technically, even if we forget something, there’s the Bear Gate, also we can buy it in the town of Mereera. Most of the work was done by Tirumina-san, so I have nothing to do.
I made ice cream and I got my swimsuits. Food and ingredients are being organized by Tirmina-san, so I have nothing to do. By the way, what happened to Lurina-san and Gil?
Helen-san said she would contact me when Lurina-san and Gil came back, but I haven’t heard anything bout it yet. Perhaps they might not make it in time. If that happens, there will be no one to take care of the children, but is it okay?
I’ll go to the Adventurer’s Guild later and ask them.
With that in mind, today while I’m being lazy without leaving my house, I heard a knock on the door.
[Yuna-sa~~~~n… Are you there?~~~~~] Noa
I know whose voice is that. When I opened the door, Noa stood there as expected. But I didn’t expect the people behind her.
[Yuna-oneesama, it’s been a while.] Misa
[Misa, you came.] Yuna
Behind Noa is Misa, and behind them is Marina’s party.
[Thank you for inviting me this time.] Misa
[You don’t have to be so formal. I hope you enjoy it.] Yuna
I interrupted Misa’s polite greeting. I don’t need such a polite greeting.
[But you came along, did your parents gave their permission?] Yuna
[Yes. If I’m with Yuna-oneesama, they would give their permission with a peace of mind.] Misa
I’m happy that you trust me. But it increased my responsibility.
[However, there will be everyone from the orphanage and Fina-chan’s family together with us, is that right? Is it okay for me to join you?] Misa
[Noa accepts for sure. Fina and Shuri will also be glad to have you. You can see them later.] Yuna
[Yes. I’m looking forward to seeing Fina-chan and Shuri-chan.] Misa
Misa hadn’t seen Fina and Shuri since the school festival at the royal capital.
[So did you come here alone? What about Gran-san?] Yuna
Neither her parents nor Gran-san is here. Gran-san, who entrusted the lord’s work to Misa’s parents, was free, so I thought he would come along. Only Marina’s party came with her to my place. Marina’s party are looking at the Bear House since a while ago.
[I came here with my grandfather. He’s talking with Cliff-sama, so he’s still in Noa-oneesama’s mansion. He told me he’ll come to say hello to Yuna-oneesama later.] Misa
If so, should I say hello to him? I’ll take care of your granddaughter.
Is Marina’s party coming with us to the sea?
I glanced at Marina’s party and they’re still staring at the Bear House.
[Marina and the rest. It’s been a long time.] Yuna
I spoke to Marina, the magician Eru, swordswoman Masrika, and Itia.
[Oh yeah, it’s been a long time. What’s that? Yuna’s house?] Marina
[Yeah, that’s right.] Yuna
Marina alternates between me and the Bear-shaped House. I know what you mean, I’ve seen similar reactions all the time.
[I’ve heard it from Noa-oneesama, but it’s a very cute house.] Misa
[Cute but, why a bear?] Marina
[Don’t ask because there are deep circumstances.] Yuna
Although I just focused on safety, no other house is as safe as the Bear House. It’s a necessity for a single maiden to live.
[Yuna-oneesama, can I go inside?] Misa
Misa approached me with her shining eyes. Her face was saying that she wants to see the interior.
[It’s okay, although the inside is just the same as a normal house.] Yuna
[I don’t mind.] Misa
Misa and the rest were very happy when they entered the Bear House. After they entered the living room, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear that were curled up on the sofa raised their heads.
[Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan!] Misa
Misa hugs Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear who were sitting on the sofa.
[U wa~a, as expected, you’re so cute. Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan, were you doing well?] Misa
[I’m always jealous of Noa-oneesama who can see you anytime.] Misa
[She doesn’t always come to see them, only occasionally.] Yuna
[I’m still envious.] Misa
Noa sometimes comes to play with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear when she is taking a break from study or when she has free time. And there are moments in which Lala-san comes to pick her up.
[For the time being, I’ll serve you some tea, so everyone should sit down and wait.] Yuna
I prepared sweets and put them on the table. Swaying Bear is being held in Noa’s arms while Hugging Bear is in Misa’s arms.
[…Yuna, what about those bears?] Marina
I see. It’s the first time Marina saw Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in their cub forms.
I briefly explain to them about Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
[I knew they were mysterious bears, but they can do that?] Eru
[I thought it was those bear’s cubs.] Itia
Certainly, isn’t it easier to explain it to the people who don’t know?
[Nevertheless, the house is normal.] Marina
[Yeah it is.] Masrika
Marina said so calmly.
That’s what I said from the very beginning.
Marina and her party are strangely looking around the living room. The inside of the Bear House is just like a normal house. There are no bear figurines or bear-shaped objects. Though there are summoned bears, some bear plushies in my room, and bear statues in the bathroom. They kept muttering that there are no bears in the living room.
[Anyway, Yuna is still dressed like that as usual.] Marina
[Isn’t it hot?] Masrika
[Just looking at it makes me feel hot.] Itia
Marina and her party were looking at me while drinking iced tea.
[It’s made of a special material, so it doesn’t feel hot.] Yuna
[Even though Yuna is fine, it’s still hot when looking at it.] Eru
I know that feeling, but I can’t take it off. But it should be better than heat-resistant clothes.
But I wish God would also prepare bear clothes for summer. In the first place, it is wrong to attach the cheat ability to bear equipment. I wish there were a bear pendant, or a ring, or an accessory.
[Then we have to make Misa a swimsuit.] Yuna
[Yes, I decided to ask Yuna-san about that. Will you make it now?] Noa
I can’t decide on that without consulting Sherry.
But I think it would be okay if Temoka-san could help.
[And we have to prepare the swimsuits for the Marina and her party.] Yuna
[We’re good. Since we’re Misana-sama’s escort.] Marina
I imagined the scene. Adventurers wearing swords and defensive gears watching over children having fun on the beach felt completely off. Besides, no one would be able to have fun casually with such people nearby.
[I will ask Sherry to make Marina and the other’s swimsuits. If you wore such outfits in front of the children while they play on the beach, they wouldn’t be able to relax, so these are denied. It’s mandatory to wear it. If you don’t, you’ll either be left in Crimonia or in my house at Mereera.] Yuna
[Do we really need to wear it?] Marina
[Just give up.] Yuna
[So you’ll wear it as well Yuna-chan?] Eru
[………I’ll wear it.] Yuna
Though I don’t want to wear it.
[Ho, that would be priceless.] Marina
[Yeah. it’s not every day you can see Yuna-chan’s appearance other than Bear-san.] Eru
[If that’s the case, we will wear it.] Masrika
Marina and her party are looking at me with interest. Saying that they will wear the swimsuit to protect Misa.
[Having said that. Marina, I realized you girls always act as Misa’s escorts.] Yuna
[Misana-sama always give us a priority when making requests, so I’m not going to refuse Misana-sama’s request.] Marina
Eru and the others nodded at Marina’s words.
[Marina’s party protects me, so father and grandfather put their trust in them. That’s why I asked for them. Of course, I also trust them.] Misa
Marina and her party were happy with the words of Misa.
Even when attacked by a group of orcs, they were fighting for their lives without abandoning Misa. It wasn’t strange to abandon them and run away. But without doing that, they protected the horse-drawn carriage of Misa and Gran-san.
It’s probably not one-sided. I’m not sure, I think Misa and Marina’s party have a long-standing relationship.
[Misa seems really important for Marina’s party.] Yuna
[Obviously. Misana-sama is our most important client.] Marina
But if Marina’s party comes along, I’ll really have to think about the Bear Bus. If Gil and Lurina-san take part in it too, we’ll go over the bus seating capacity. I wonder if I should remodel it a little.
[But Yuna-oneesama, you’re going to have quite a lot of people. Is it okay to prepare a carriage? Shall we use the carriage we have been riding in?] Misa
Misa asks anxiously. However, even the horse-drawn carriage that Misa was riding on would not be enough.
[I have prepared it properly, so it is okay even if the number of people increases a little.] Yuna
I’ll just lengthen the Bear Bus. But when it gets longer, it will look strange. Should I turn it into a double-decker?
Misa arrived safely.
It’s about time for departure.
What happened to Lurina and the others?
