Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 354
Bear-san, Goes Around for Greetings Part 1 (Day 3)
Credits to: Philip, valiant
When I woke up in the morning, my body screamed in pain.
It hurts when I raise my arm and it hurts when I bend my leg. It’s full-blown muscle pain. I rubbed my legs and arms in the bath yesterday, but it seems that it didn’t work. It’s funny, I shouldn’t have played enough to get a sunburn yesterday, but I have muscle aches all over my body. When I move my body, I get severe pain in various places. I can’t walk as it is.
When I asked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear for help, they anxiously cried <Ku~u~n> and snuggled up to me. But even if they come to me, the muscle pain didn’t go away. I picked up my bear puppets that were on my pillow and wore it. After I put it on, I used healing magic on the part where my muscles are aching. The pain gradually relieved. It doesn’t hurt anymore when I bend my arms and legs.
Thanks to the bear magic!
That’s how the morning of the third day went.
The children ate breakfast then went to the harbor to ride the boat. I waved my hand and saw off the children. Everyone, including Noa’s group. The director said she wants to stay in the bear house, but she was taken by the children.
Only me, Fina, and Shuri are left in the bear house.
[Is it really okay for the both of you not to go with them?] Yuna
[Yes, I’m going with Yuna-oneechan.] Shuri
[Don’t you want to get on the boat, Shuri?] Yuna
[Yeah, I wanted to ride the boat. But I also want to see Dega-ojichan.] Shuri
After what happened yesterday, I decided to go around to greet everyone in Mereera. Of course, that includes Dega-san. Upon hearing me say it, Fina and Shuri said they wanted to go with me.
[Also, we already got on the boat when we came here before.] Fina
That’s why I took Fina and Shuri to Dega-san’s inn. Anzu said I don’t need to say hello, but that’s not the case. Greetings are necessary because I am taking care of his daughter.
We walk leisurely from the bear house. I did not return Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to the bear puppets.
When we arrived at the inn and went inside, his muscles welcomes us.
[Welcome. Un? Bear girl?] Dega
[Dega-san, it’s been a long time.] Yuna
When I gave my greetings, Fina and Shuri bowed down and said hello as well.
[Oh, you all look lovely today. I was very surprised because Anzu suddenly came back yesterday.] Dega
[Did you receive a letter?] Yuna
[I got the letter, but it didn’t say anything about her coming back. She thought I would be worried if she wrote it. I just didn’t expect for Anzu to come back to town so quickly.] Dega
By the way, did she mentioned that?
[When I heard that she was there, I thought I’d go to your house, but I’m too busy.] Dega
[As expected, you’re getting a lot of customers now, didn’t you?] Yuna
[Yeah, but when I told Anzu to come back here, she refused. She told me, <I can’t because I also have a shop to worry about>.] Dega
[That’s not good. I’ll be in trouble if Anzu doesn’t return with us.] Yuna
[No good. If you take Anzu-oneechan, we won’t be able to eat delicious food.] Shuri
I quickly tried to stop Shuri, but even Fina nodded a little
Dega-san put his big hand on top of Shuri’s head.
[Half of it was just a joke. Rest assured that I’m not going to take Anzu back.] Dega
But half of it was serious.
[I’ve heard that Anzu was happily doing her own thing. If she had a hard time and was crying, I’ll take her back.] Dega
[Isn’t more appropriate to say that she shouldn’t come back until she’s a full-fledged chef?] Yuna
[I can’t say that to my cute daughter! If that is my son, I’ll kick his ass and take him back.] Dega
Apparently, fathers in every world are sweet to their daughters.
[But don’t tell her that I said that because it’s embarrassing.] Dega
Even though the muscle dad looks embarrassed, it doesn’t have a MOE factor, so stop making that face.
[But Anzu seems to be doing alright, so I’m relieved.] Dega
It seems that Dega-san heard everything about Anzu’s shop from the guests staying at the inn. The <Bear-san Restaurant> seems to be famous as it is. He also heard it from the people who travel from Mereera to Crimonia and back.
Apparently, Dega-san’s information about Anzu only came from rumors and gossips.
[Keep it a secret to Anzu.] Dega
But doesn’t that mean that Dega-san’s information is also flowing to Anzu?
Well, it’s good that information flows to each other. They don’t have to worry.
Then we talked about how Anzu is doing in Crimonia and then, we went to the next place.
[Are we going to Atora-san next?] Fina
[Last time, she was very angry when I didn’t show my face to her.] Yuna
In the first place, I don’t know the reason as to why she got angry just because I didn’t show up to her.
Perhaps thinking that I didn’t have to see her since I didn’t have any business with her is the result of my long life in solitude.
(TC: My ancestors are smiling at me, imperial. Can you say the same? <Sorry can’t help it.>)
Normally, do I just say hello?
That’s why we went to the Adventurer’s Guild to meet Atora-san.
When I entered the Adventurer’s Guild, I got gazed at for the first time in a while.
[Why is there a bear here?] Adventurer1
[Don’t you know? The bear lady is on a trip with her store employees.] Adventurer2
[Why do you know that?] Adventurer1
That’s right. Why do you know that?
[I saw the leaflet about the store’s holiday. I’ve confirmed it. I’m a regular customer of that bakery and cafeteria.] Adventurer2
An adventurer declares proudly.
But did the leaflet mention the reason for the holidays?
I don’t remember much about the details. However, it’s possible that Anzu and the children informed them normally. Even so, I’m not saying they shouldn’t talk about why we’re taking a break from the store.
And as I’m wandering around, a male guild employee noticed me.
Etto, I’m sure this person is.
[Yuna-san. It’s been a long time.] Sei
[Se, Sei-san, yeah, it’s been a long time.] Yuna
Dangerous, dangerous. His name didn’t pop out for a moment there.
However, Sei-san responded with a smile, whether he noticed it or pretended not to notice it.
[Is Atora-san here? I thought I’d say hello since I’m here in Mereera.] Yuna
[Yes, she’s here. Please head to the back room.] Sei
With Sei-san’s guidance, we head to the back room where Atora-san is.
The other guild staff was bowing. I don’t need that. That’s why we hurried into the room.
[What? If it’s work, turn it in the afternoon.] Atora
Atora-san said to us while facing down.
[That’s not it, Guildmaster. Yuna-san came.] Sei
[Yuna is here?] Atora
When Sei-san answered, Atora-san, who was doing some paperwork at the desk, looked up.
[Yuna! And also Fina and Shuri!] Atora
[Atora-san, it’s been a while.] Yuna
Atora-san is still dressed with a lot of exposed parts. She can do it because she is confident in her body. I would definitely not be able to wear that.
[Did you just come into town?] Atora
Apparently, Atora-san didn’t know I was here.
Sei-san said, <Please take your time> and left the room.
[I’m here since yesterday. And so, I came because the last time, you were complaining when I didn’t come to say hello right away.] Yuna
[I wasn’t complaining about it. I just felt bad when Yuna, who took care of me didn’t show up.] Atora
That’s why this time, I’m showing up like this.
[So what’s up? Did you come here to play with Fina and Shuri again?] Atora
I briefly explained why we came here.
[So it’s an employee trip with children. Yuna still does strange things.] Atora
Was it really that strange?
Well, even if the others think it’s weird, I just do what I want to do. I’m not bothering others. Yes, the moment I thought so, Tirumina-san’s face came to my mind. I shook my head from side to side and shook off Tirumina-san from my head.
Tirumina-san should be enjoying this trip as well, so there should be no problem.
And today, she went on a boat ride with the children. Tirumina-san was asking how to catch seafood. As I have said. She’s definitely enjoying it.
[Even so, it looks like you’re busy.] Yuna
[Well, the security of the town was also given to me. So I’m a little busier than usual.] Atora
[You’re also doing that?] Yuna
[The newly appointed mayor said that he couldn’t attend to everything. There used to be a small amount of guards, but now there are more of them than ever. When they don’t have enough people, they turn to the adventurers and hire them, so as the one who manages adventurers, if I’m in charge of security management too, it saves a lot of trouble. Besides, I can ask the adventurers to deal with matters guards can’t handle, and I get the information about nearby monsters faster, so there’s a lot of merit in that. The only downside is that I’m even busier now, though.] Atora
Atora-san said so with a laugh, but her expression says otherwise.
[And now that there aren’t enough people, I have to help as much as I can.] Atora
The workforce is increasing, but so is the amount of work.
[By the way, Atora-san, I’ve been meaning to ask you. The area around my house, why hasn’t it been cleared yet?] Yuna
The trees around my house remained uncut. The path was paved with cobblestones and surrounded by forests on the left and right, and there was a Bear House on the way. To describe the current situation, my Bear House looks like a temple or a shrine.
[Ā, are ne…] Atora
Atora-san slowly diverts her gaze from me.
[They said to leave that as it is.] Atora
[Because, since you built such a huge bear structure, no one can build a building nearby. Nobody wants to build around it, since the atmosphere is preventing people to build anything near it, so it remained as it is. ] Atora
In other words, it’s because of the bear house.
[It wouldn’t stand out if there were trees surrounding it.] Atora
Certainly, it will not be noticed immediately. However, on the contrary, it stood out because that’s the only place with forest and that beautifully paved pathway. If you pass in front of that pathway, you can see the bear’s face whether you like it or not.
Should I hide it by raising the wall?
[Yuna, if you really don’t like it, I can tell the townspeople that Yuna said so.] Atora
This person is just throwing everything out to others because it was a hassle.
It’s too troublesome for me as well. I’m not going to clear the forest around my house until I persuade the residents.
[Everyone is grateful to Yuna, they’re not giving you a hateful atmosphere. So it’s not harassment. Please understand that.] Atora
I can see that by looking at the fishermen yesterday. I saw their desire to thank me and their actions to avoid bothering me.
They really don’t have to worry about the Kraken subjugation and the tunnel creation.
The Kraken subjugation was for rice, soy sauce, and miso. The tunnel was just to secure the distribution of seafood and to get Anzu. So I don’t really care about anything else.
However, I couldn’t tell the truth anymore, so I had no choice but to accept the current situation.
Yuna and others have taken different actions.
