Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 344
Bear-san Invites Lurina-san
Credits to: valiant
Finally, we’re leaving for Mereera in the early morning tomorrow.
I greeted Gran-san and promised to take care of Misa. Well, Marina is there so she would be escorting her instead of me.
Thanks to Sherry’s hard work, the swimsuits for Misa, Marina, and Eru could be made in time.
Then, when I went to the orphanage to check the situation, there’s already a person who’ll take care of the birds, and I saw him taking care of them with the children. I’m glad he came.
If he didn’t come by, I would worry.
Then, while I’m on my way to Bear-san’s rest shop to get the ingredients that Tirumina-san asked, I saw Anzu and the others who were about to buy souvenirs. Their store has been closed since yesterday. Tirumina-san is taking a break early because she’s checking the schedule when the tunnel management changes the flow of traffic.
When I arrive at Bear-san’s rest shop, Morin-san and Karin-san were preparing breakfast and lunch for tomorrow.
Misa is exploring the town of Crimonia together with Noa, Fina, and Shuri. They also visited my house. Their target is Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. They wanted to play with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear all day long. Those children are really energetic.
And so, we will leave tomorrow. I knew it, Lurina-san and Gil didn’t come back. The children might get lonely, but it can’t be helped. Even those two are working.
I’ve decided on the number of people going to Mereera, so I went outside of the town to remodel the Bear Bus. Then after leaving the town alone, I arrived at the place where I made the Bear Bus with Fina and Shuri from the last time.
It should be okay here because nobody will notice me here. With that in mind, I took the Bear Bus out from the Bear Box.
[What is this weird thing?] ???
A voice came from behind me. When I look back, there was an unexpected person standing there.
Shia is in front of me. Next to her is Lurina-san.
I can’t grasp the situation. Why are these two here together?
And why are you standing behind me in the first place?
[Etto, why is Shia in Crimonia? Also, why are you together with Lurina-san? But before that, why were you behind me?] Yuna
For now, let’s try to sort out some questions.
[I’m here because I saw Yuna-san walking.] Shia
[Then why are you in Crimonia?] Yuna
[I came from the royal capital.] Shia
[Why did you come here all the way from the royal capital?] Yuna
[To go to the town of Mereera together with Yuna-san.] Shia
Shia answered my questions plainly. But no one told me she would be coming with us to Mireera.
[Did I make you a promise?] Yuna
[No, you didn’t.] Shia
Yeah, I haven’t done that. I don’t have a memory of that.
The other day, after giving a report for delivering the water magic stone to Dezerto, I got donna-donna by Eleanora-san. At that time, I remember talking to Noa about going to the sea. And, I remember the envious Shia, however, she never said anything about going with us.
[Aren’t you a student? What about school?] Yuna
[The school is closed. I’m on a long break. And I thought I wouldn’t make it in time if I use a carriage, so I came here on horseback. But it seems that it was good timing that I saw Yuna-san leaving the gate so I followed you.] Shia
I’m sure it wasn’t just a coincidence.
[You didn’t say anything when you saw me.] Yuna
[I wanted to surprise Yuna-san and Noa. And my mother didn’t allow me to go until the last minute of the school closing.] Shia
[Speaking of which, is Eleanora-san with you?] Yuna
I confirmed my surroundings.
[She isn’t. My mother is at work.] Shia
She’s not here? I’m a little relieved.
If Eleanora was here, it’ll turn into a big mess.
Well, I understand why Shia is here.
[If you told me earlier, I would’ve changed the date.] Yuna
There’s no problem with just a few days’ change in the schedule. I don’t need to book an inn. I’m not even hiring carriages. The only ones who have problems with it are the ones who’ll take care of the birds.
[Then I can’t surprise Yuna-san and Noa.] Shia
To surprise me, huh. You don’t have to do that.
[So then, Shia and Lurina, why are you together?] Yuna
[That’s because I happened to be in the royal capital and I was asked to protect Shia-chan.] Lurina
Lurina-san answered my question.
According to Lurina-san, She and Gill went to the royal capital for work. So, after finishing their work, Lurina-san and Gil were looking for a job that goes along going to Crimonia, met Shia, who came to ask for the request.
So Lurina-san said she has been escorting Shia to Crimonia as requested.
But Lurina-san and Gil went to the royal capital. So that’s why they didn’t come back sooner.
[And then, when I chatted with Lurina-san, I was surprised to hear that she was acquainted with you.] Shia
[There’s only a handful of adventurers in Crimonia who are friendly with Yuna-chan after all.] Lurina
That, that’s not true, you know?
I’m sure there are many adventurers who also happens to be close friends.
There are adventurers like Jade-san and his party which is based in the royal capital. Blitz’s party are adventurers who wander around without a fixed base. Marina and her party are adventurers based in the city of Sheleen. And the only Crimonian adventurers I get along with are Lurina-san and Gil.
Later, four new adventurers will be added.
After some reconsideration, I realized that I’m not really close to these adventurers, because I did not form a party with them or do a request together.
But I don’t feel lonely since I don’t need a party because I have my Bear Equipment, so I’m used to it.
I’m not pretending to be tough.
[While returning to Crimonia, I enjoyed listening to Yuna-san’s story in a variety of ways.] Shia
What? That’s my personal information you’re talking about. But if Lurina-san knew what Cliff knows, then, Eleanora-san would naturally know.
[Yuna-san. You seem to have beaten up Lurina-san’s former friend.] Shia
I see so that’s what the story is about.
Certainly, Lurina-san knew more about what happened in the adventurer’s guild and Deborane.
[I also enjoyed talking about the Adventurer’s Guild.] Lurina
Maybe it’s about the infamous Bloody Bear? Somehow I feel like she’s talking about something I know nothing about.
I have to ask Lurina-san what she said later.
[So Yuna-san. Is this a vehicle? Are you perhaps going to use it to go to Mereera?] Shia
Shia has been circling around the Bear Bus for a while now, it seems she’s very interested.
[Yeah, that’s right.] Yuna
[Isn’t it too big?] Shia
[I think so too. How many people can ride in it?] Lurina
Is that so? Though I think that there are horse carriages of this size, like a large carriage that carries luggage on top. But you’ll need many horses to pull that.
[I’ll take all the children in the orphanage along with the people who work in the shop. If it’s not big enough, they won’t be able to ride in it.] Yuna
[But how will you move such a big thing?] Shia
Shia asked that question. After that, Shia goes around the Bear Bus once more, and Lurina looks at the Bear Bus’s face from the front.
[Maybe Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan are the ones going to pull it?] Shia
I knew you would say that.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear will cry when they hear that.
[No they won’t.] Yuna
[So horses then? How many do you need?] Lurina
[In that case, it would be better to just bring a few more carriages.] Shia
To Lurina-san’s words, Shia’s words are more like common sense. Well, if we’re using the same number of horses anyway, it is easier to just use multiple normal carriages instead.
But I don’t think anybody knew that it uses magic to move.
[It’s a golem-type carriage driven by my magic.] Yuna
[Golem carriage? And it uses Yuna-chan’s magical power to move it?] Lurina
[It’s like moving an ordinary golem.] Yuna
I made a normal earth bear golem and pour my magic power to make it move. The bear golem ran around the Bear Bus.
[Like that. Though it uses a lot of magical power.] Yuna
[It’s usually difficult to make golems since it consumes a lot of magical power, but move such a big thing.] Lurina
Lurina-san looks at me and the Bear Bus alternately with astonishment.
By the way, Marina’s party knows that I made a big bear golem before, but Lurina-san doesn’t.
[But as usual, Yuna-chan makes bears.] Lurina
It can’t be helped. I can easily create stuff using the image of a bear, and if I make the same thing, I can reduce the magical power consumption. Furthermore, the strength is higher just like the Bear House. There is no reason not to make it a bear because the merit of making a bear is far too great. If I put up with it, the magical power consumption will be suppressed and the children will be safe.
[Yuna-chan, can I ride it a little?] Lurina
[You can get on it if you come along with us to Mereera, Lurina-san.] Yuna
[Ara, I can come along?] Lurina
[I was going to invite Lurina-san and Gil to this trip, so I asked the adventurer’s guild to tell me when you came back to Crimonia.] Yuna
[Is that so?] Lurina
[But you never came back.] Yuna
I’m not asking for an apology, though. I just want to say it.
[But isn’t it a trip for people involved with Yuna-chan?] Lurina
[Lurina-san and Gil know the children so there’s no problem. Besides, there are some people I haven’t even invited.] Yuna
I glanced at Shia who’s looking around at the Bear Bus.
[And the kids will be happy with you two around.] Yuna
[Fu fu, that’s right. Though I’m afraid Gill is more popular with boys, anyway. He’s quiet, but he carefully takes care of them.] Lurina
Gill seems to be playing with the children with an expressionless face, but he doesn’t seem to dislike it.
I don’t even ask him for it, but he sometimes comes to the orphanage.
[So, you’re not together with Gill?] Yuna
[We were together. But then we said we’d follow Yuna-chan, Gil said <I’m going back> and went home to the city.] Lurina
That’s Gill alright. But I might have noticed him if Gill who has a big body followed me.
[So Lurina-san, why don’t you and Gill come with us?] Yuna
[Right. We won’t be your escorts or anything, right?] Lurina
[I won’t pay any request fee, but I’ll give you a place to stay and meals.] Yuna
[A place to stay, is that the big Bear House?] Lurina
[Have you seen it?] Yuna
[Everyone knows that if you go to Mereera, you’ll see it. Yeah, it’s okay. I’ll go with you. I’ll tell Gill later.] Lurina
I’m happy that Lurina-san is here, but I don’t have a swimsuit for her. Even if I ask to make it now, it will not be on time. Though when I told her that…
[Clothing for swimming in the sea? You mean swimsuits, right? It’s okay. I have the swimsuit that I bought when I went to Yufalia last year. I’m sure my figure hasn’t changed.] Lurina
Lurina-san touches her body lightly. She has an adult-like body. I would also grow up to be like her once I reach the same age, so there was no need to panic.
Also, I was curious about her swimsuit, but she spoke the name of a place I’d never heard about.
[Yufalia? What’s that?] Yuna
[Yuna-chan, you didn’t know?] Lurina
Yes, I’m from a different world so I don’t know. You don’t have to be so surprised, you know.
[Yufalia is also known as the city of water. It a city with a big lake.] Lurina
[It’s a very beautiful city. Wealthy people and aristocrats go there during hot seasons.] Shia
To sum up their story, it seems that the city was built around the lake.
[I happened to go to work there last year. At that time I bought a swimsuit.] Lurina
However, there is such a city. I want to go there once. But I won’t go because I’m reluctant to wear a swimsuit.
It’s the arrival of Lurina-san and Gil (although they weren’t together).
It seems like we can finally go to the town of Mereera w
Up next, Day 1.
A bit of teaser…
Remember DBZ? How many episodes Kakarot took to throw that useless-big-ass energy ball? That’s what Day 1’s gonna be like, which is simply getting to Mereera… 4 chapters at least, plus a chapter for settling down to end the day.
