Bear-san Realizes the Lack of Physical Strength (Day 2)

[Even though, the waves are calm. I’m a little worried about the children being washed away.] Lurina
Lurina-san looks at the sea and says something like that.
Yes indeed. The waves on the beach here were relatively calm. It’s suitable for playing.
But even small children can drown or be swept away by the waves when the adults take their eyes off of them. Right now they’re playing on the edge of the beach and Liz-san is holding the other children’s hands. But it’s not like she can keep an eye on all of them.
And some children can’t swim, so it might be better to make a safe place to play.
I stood up and walked under the bright sunshine.
Hot! My soft skin is slowly burning. I used a towel to protect my skin. Even so, the heat from the sand under my feet rises.
I wondered what it’s like to wear a swimsuit, but it’s hotter than wearing a bear costume. I miss my bear costume since I don’t feel the heat inside it.
[Where are you going, Yuna-chan?] Lurina
Lurina-san asked me when I left the beach house.
[I want the children to feel at ease, so I’ll create a place where they can swim.] Yuna
When I walk along the beach, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear followed me. In addition, the children followed Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. And behind the children is Lurina-san with a smiling face. A strange line has been made.
I look around to find a suitable place to build a pool. Everywhere I look seems the same. There’s a stretch of sandy beach from left to right and there are some rocks along the way. I go to a beach where there’s no children playing.
Is it okay around here?
When I reached the shoreline, I thrust the bear puppets forward. But I warned the children behind me as if I just remembered.
[All of you, just stay behind me.] Yuna
I thrust the bear puppets once again and used earth magic. Then a myriad of poles sticks out from the sea like fences. The size of the fence should be about 25m laterally and about 1m deep into the sea. The water level will change over time, but I will ask Lurina-san and others to be careful in that area.
The fence will prevent children from being swept away by the waves. The waves can still enter, so they can still play normally at the beach.
[Lurina-san, please let the children play here. If it still seems narrow, I will widen it.] Yuna
[As usual, you used magic like it’s nothing. OK, I’ll invite Liz, Elena, and Gill to play here as well.] Lurina
Lurina-san calls out to Liz-san. The children who were playing other games also gathered in the voice of Lurina-san. There are also figures of Fina and Shuri.
When Liz-san and Elena-san arrived, they were initially surprised at the sight of the fence, but soon thanked me and started playing with the children.
Gill also comes with two children on his back. He’s walking with no expression, but aren’t they heavy? Even so, he’s full of muscle.
When I look at Gill, my eyes lined up with him.
But Gill, walk passed me, he sat on the sand and began watching the children.
What was that about?
[He couldn’t tell it was you, so he just stopped thinking about it.] Lurina
Lurina-san explains about Gill’s actions just now.
Is it really that difficult to recognize me?
For the time being, I made a pseudo pool, so they can play with peace of mind. There is Fina watching the children play in the sea.
[Fina you’re not going to play?] Yuna
[Ano. Yuna-oneesan, can you swim?] Fina
Fina timidly asked.
[Me? I think I could swim when I was little. Though I haven’t been swimming in the last few years.] Yuna
I haven’t swim since elementary school. I wonder, once you learn how to ride a bicycle, you can still ride it even if you haven’t been doing so for a long time. But what about swimming?
[Can you teach me? Because I can’t swim.] Fina
[Me too~.] Shuri
[Please teach us too.]
When Fina asked, Shuri and other children joined in as well and it became noisy.
As expected, Fina and Shuri couldn’t swim. Even though there is a small river near Crimonia, having a sick mother would have prevented them from going out to play.
[But if you want to learn how to swim, you could just ask Lurina-san to teach…] Yuna
When I look at Lurina-san, there are already few children gathered around her to learn how to swim. Liz-san and Elena-san are helping her.
Am I the only one who can teach them right now?
[It would be nice for me to teach you. I hope I could still swim.] Yuna
I know how swimming works. But it would be weird if I taught them when I couldn’t apply it. Therefore, I will teach them once I confirm if I can still swim. Nobody wants to be taught by anyone who can’t swim.
Fina replied happily to my condition. Do you really want to learn? I will only teach you once I know that I can still swim.
I didn’t really intend to go into the sea, but this time it can’t be helped. I wore a swimsuit because Sherry made it for me. Sherry looked happy when she saw me in my swimsuit. Looking at that face, I can’t help but get on with it.
When I took off my bear shoes and the bear puppets, I asked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to take care of it. Bear equipments are non-transferable and will not be stolen even if left it on the beach. It’s not portable. However, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear can carry the bear equipment that cannot be transferred, perhaps because they are my summon beast. So when something happens, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear will bring the bear equipment.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are truly excellent summons. If I ever go back to my original world, I want to go back together with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. However, even if there is a way to return to the original world, I do not intend to take it.
But I want to see new anime and manga.
I gave the bears equipment to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, then I walked barefoot on the beach. The sand is hot. It’s so hot that the soles of my feet are getting burned. Looking at the children, they’re doing fine. I wonder if they were trained differently?
For a hikikomori(shut-in) like me who’s always in a cage. It’s a clear answer for the children who moves around every day.
And last but not the least, I took off the towel and handed it over to Swaying Bear.
Next, I did a light exercise before entering the sea. If you enter the sea without a warm-up exercise, your legs will get cramped. Without the bear equipment, I’m no more than an ordinary person.
After a warm-up exercise, I entered the sea. It’s cold. I slowly, swam up to the depth of my chest.
Oh, I can swim. My body still remembers it. I used to swim when I was in elementary school, but I still remember it.
[Yuna-oneechan is amazing.] Shuri
Shuri and others praised me, but it is embarrassing. I can only swim a little. Long-distance swimming is absolutely impossible, I can’t swim while holding a drowning person, and I can only swim for a short distance.
For the time being, I found out that I could swim, so I decided to teach Fina and the others how to swim.
[Speaking of which, Noa’s group aren’t there. Fina do you know where they went?] Yuna
[Noa-sama? I think, I saw them walking towards that rocky mountain over there.] Fina
Fina is referring to a rocky boulders that is a little far away.
[Marina and Eru are with them, right?] Yuna
[Yes, they were together.] Fina
Then there’s nothing to worry about, they’re okay.
I taught Fina and the kids how to swim. But I cannot teach everyone at the same time, so once I put on the bear puppets, I took out the Kickboard from the bear box. Even if it is called a Kickboard, it’s just a wooden board. But unlike ordinary boards, it is a Kickboard made of wood that floats on water.
When I consulted Tirumina-san, she taught me this wood. I gave each of the children a Kickboard made of the wood and taught them how to use it. The kids happily started swimming with the Kickboard. If I put out a big board as a play tool, everyone can ride on it and play.
If it floats, it can also be used as a float. It is a good tool for children to play.
Best of all, it’s a bear-shaped vehicle.
A bear made out of floating fluffy wood. I placed three of those so that there is no competition. When the bear ride comes out, the kids happily ride it.
And that’s how my swimming class started. It will be finished soon. The limit has come to my physical strength.
After teaching the kids how to swim, I laid down at a beach house. I remembered how to swim, but I didn’t have the physical strength to keep on doing it.
[But Yuna-chan, you’re an adventurer. You’re always running in the mountains and fought a lot of monsters.] Lurina
Lurina-san seems to be shocked when she saw me.
[You’ve held me in a princess carry back then, didn’t you?] Lurina
[As I said before, it’s magic. If I don’t use magic, I can’t even compete against the physical strength of a child.] Yuna
[I agree with that. Where do the children’s energy to play comes from?] Lurina
But I never thought I was lacking so much in terms of physical strength.
I rest my body while using Hugging Bear as a pillow.
[Yuna-oneesan, are you okay?] Fina
Fina brought me a drink.
[Un, I’ll be okay if I take a little break, so go ahead and play with the others Fina.] Yuna
[I’m a little tired, so I’ll also take a rest.] Fina
Fina sat next to me. Shuri is playing together with the children. It was fun and nice. In the pseudo pool, children and other members such as Lurina-san and Liz-san are playing happily.
While I’m laying down, taking a little rest, it suddenly got noisy.
[What is this!?] Noa
Judging from that voice, it seems to be Noa. She wasn’t here when I took out the beach house. According to Fina, she said she was going to the rocky area. Apparently she’s back.
[What’s wrong with Yuna-san?] Shia
When they found me lying down, Noa and Shia ran up to me.
[It’s nothing. I just used up all my physical strength and I somehow collapsed.] Yuna
[Physical strength you said. Yuna-san, you’re an adventurer.] Noa
It’s the same thing what Lurina-san said. Well, I understand what Noa meant. I who is usually an adventurer and known to have defeated a lot of monsters, became like this.
But, thanks to Bear-san’s cheat, my stats are below than the average person. Though I can’t tell them that.
[Noa, where have you been until now? I didn’t saw you anywhere nearby.] Yuna
[Yes, there were people fishing at the rocky mountain there, so I was watching and swimming. I was on the other side of the rocky mountain, so I did not notice that there was such a house here.] Noa
[Did Yuna-san made it?] Shia
[I’m just thinking that everyone can take a short break.] Yuna
I answered Shia’s question. Well, I mainly use it for myself. But everyone who went out to play can take a short break. I don’t know if they have a lot of energy or the sea is so much fun. Maybe both.
[Noa and the others should take a rest when you’re tired. It’s not good to rest in the strong sunshine. Also, since there are refreshments in the refrigerator, you can drink as muck as you want.] Yuna
[Yes. I was so thirsty that I was thinking of going back at the house.] Noa
[So you can swim?] Yuna
[Yes, oneesama taught me so I can swim a little.] Noa
[So what about Misa?] Yuna
There are only two people here, Noa and Shia. I can’t see Misa, Marina, and Eru.
[Misa is training for swimming with Marina. She wants to be able to swim because I can swim.] Noa
[I taught her after school. It’s good to practice swimming because it will make her classes easier, even before entering school.] Shia
It’s okay if she’s with Marina and Eru.
When they come back, I’ll tell them about the pool.
Noa and Shia both grabbed a drink from the refrigerator and took a break by my side.
Noa’s swimsuit is different color with the same frills as Fina. Fina is white, while Noa is blue. Shia’s school swimsuit is like more suitable for swimming competition.
And when I was wondering what to do for lunch, the beach became noisy once again. A lot of people came to the beach. They’re mostly adults.
What? I quickly wear my bear shoes and bear puppets.
For the time being, I made pool, Kickboards, floats and bear rides.
Is that the rest?
Even so, Yuna really has no physical strength without the bear costume. w
