Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 355
Bear-san goes around for greetings Part 2 (Day 3)
Credits to: valiant, asuran8, Philip
After leaving the Adventurer’s Guild, we head to the commercial guild to meet Jeremo-san, so I can thank him for having rice and seafood brought to the store on a regular basis.
When I entered the commercial guild, I got a lot of gazes.
<Bear?>, <Bear girl?>, <Bear girl has come>, <I heard she’s swimming in the sea>, <She’s still dressed like that?>, <Apparently, she went to the sea in that outfit>, <Isn’t it hot?>, <It’s the bear girl!>.
I don’t understand what’s going on. But It seems that they know I was in the sea yesterday.
Even so, there are now more people here in the commercial guild and it’s quite livelier than I expected.
When I went to the reception desk, where the guild staff was, to ask for Jeremo -san, someone else came.
[When I thought about why it was noisy here, it appears that Yuna-san came.] Anabelle
The one who appeared was Anabelle-san, who came from Crimonia to educate Jeremo-san to be a Guildmaster.
She’s still in Mereera.
[Anabelle-san, it’s been a long time.] Yuna
[I’ve been hearing a lot about you. You came to Mereera together with the children who work for Yuna-san. Not only did you gave them jobs, but you also have a compassionate heart for those who work for you. Yuna-san is kind. I want other business people to follow suit.] Anabelle
Anabelle glanced at the surroundings and those who appeared to be in business were looking away.
[This is my way of thanking them for their hard work. Besides, taking a break from time to time is essential to work efficiently.] Yuna
Besides, it’ll be boring to repeat the same thing every day. Sometimes, people need variety. That’s why I want to take a break several times a year.
[Normally you can’t, considering the profits of the store.] Anabelle
Well, I hope the profit is not in the red. Thanks to everyone, sales are growing steadily. (Tirumina-san said.)
So, there is nothing wrong with taking a break. With this, I hope you can refresh your feelings and work.
[But Anabelle-san. You’re still here.] Yuna
[Yeah, I was thinking of going back to Crimonia. But, Mylene-san asked me to work in this commercial guild branch instead.] Anabelle
[But you’re married and have small children, right?] Yuna
[Yes, that’s why I called my husband and children over here.] Anabelle
Anabelle-san glances at the staff. Then, a slender male employee in the back bows his head.
[Could this be your husband?] Yuna
[Yes, he said he would come here with me, and Mylene-san also said that me working here would save a lot of trouble, so I moved here with my husband and child.] Anabelle
He seems like a gentleman. However, I think that behind the scenes, Anabelle-san is the one who’s dominant. But it’s better to live together than be apart for a long time. It’s also good for her children.
[Your husband also worked in the commercial guild?] Yuna
[We first met each other in the commercial guild… Yuna-san. What are you trying to make me say!] Anabelle
No, I never asked for that kind of information. It was Anabelle-san who spoke of it even without me asking. But I don’t even want to hear her ecstatic story.
However, her husband who came here with her seems to be nice.
[Well, I decided to stay here because I was asked by a guild staff member.] Anabelle
[We can’t control Jeremo-san after Anabelle-san is gone.] Guild staff
[We’ll be in a lot of trouble if we don’t have Anabelle-san here.] Guild staff
The staff members who were listening joined the conversation.
Apparently, Anabelle-san is desperately needed in Mereera’s commercial guild.
[And that’s why I stayed here.] Anabelle
[Maybe Jeremo-san is useless as the Guildmaster?] Yuna
[That’s not the case. He has the qualification to be a Guildmaster. However, the problem is that he has a habit of skipping. When I take my eyes off him, he tries to skip and get out of the room. But for the townspeople, he is the only hope. His face is widely known, so if they told Jeremo-san to go back to work, he will usually accept it. If he didn’t have a habit of skipping, he would be an excellent Guildmaster.] Anabelle
Did the elders say such a thing?
Being loved by the townspeople may be a necessary qualification for those who stand above.
[About that, is Jeremo-san here? I came to say hello.] Yuna
[He’s working in the back room.] Anabelle
Anabelle-san took us to the room where Jeremo-san is. But when we entered the room, I couldn’t see Jeremo-san. There was a pile of documents on the desk and an open window.
[Ano, that guy was……] Yuna
Anabelle-san is holding her head.
Well, in other words, he ditched his job and ran away.
[Ha-a(sigh), Yuna-san, please sit in a chair and wait. I’ll prepare some drinks now.] Anabelle
[You’re not going to look for him?] Yuna
[He’ll be back soon.] Anabelle
That being said, Anabelle-san left the room.
[Yuna-oneesan, are we going to wait?] Fina
[What should we do now?] Yuna
Anabelle-san said she would be back soon, but she might take a while since she would come back after meeting Kuro-ojisan first. While I was wondering what to do, Shuri made a noise.
[Oneechan! Yuna-oneechan! A strange person in the window.] Shuri
[The window?] Yuna
Looking at the window, Jeremo-san was about to come in.
Our line of sight matches Jeremo-san’s line of sight.
[Why is the bear girl and co. here?] Jeremo
[I came to say hello to you Jeremo-san. But I couldn’t.] Yuna
[I’m sorry. I was walking outside for a moment.] Jeremo
Jeremo-san gets over the window sill and entered the room.
[Anabelle-san was very angry.] Yuna
[Is that true? She shouldn’t come to my room at this time to check my job.] Jeremo
Did this person made such a detailed calculation and getting out of it?
[Perhaps it’s my fault. I’m sorry. She entered the room when I asked her to guide me.] Yuna
[No, it’s not the young ladies’ fault, so don’t worry. That’s right………. I, I just went to the bathroom, so it’s okay.] Jeremo
[Ara, did you go to the bathroom through the window?] Anabelle
Anabelle-san, who brought the drinks, stood at the door. Jeremo-san has a distressed expression on his face.
[That’s right, because that way gets me closer to the bathroom.] Jeremo
[The bathroom is right outside the door.] Anabelle
Anabelle-san answered with no expression and placed the drinks in front of us.
[In that kind of emergency?] Anabelle
[What I mean is, I did it outside.] Jeremo
[You did it outside?] Anabelle
Anabelle-san and Shuri were staring at Jeremo-san with scornful and innocent eyes respectively.
[N… No, I didn’t. That was a lie.] Jeremo
As expected, he cannot tell a straight lie in front of Shuri and answered honestly. Why did you try to lie when you ditched your work?
Jeremo-san racks his brain as he awkwardly sits in his chair.
[By the way, it seems that the bear lady came here to play.] Jeremo
Apparently, he wants to change the topic.
I also often divert the topic, so I can’t say anything about him. So, this time, I’ll take Jeremo-san’s topic.
[Un. I heard from Anzu that you always give priority to seafood and rice, so I came to thank you for it.] Yuna
I heard from Anzu that the seafood sent from Mereera to Crimonia was given priority to my shop. I didn’t ask for it. Anzu said that you can tell by looking at the fish.
[That wasn’t my direction. It’s what the townspeople who were doing it.] Jeremo
[By the way, I once saw some fishermen fighting for the fish to be sent to Yuna-san’s shop. <My fish is bigger, its body is packed and delicious>.] Anabelle
Anabelle-san told us as if she just remembered it. I’m glad they sent me good things, but I want you to stop fighting over it.
However, it seems that Kuro-ojisan saw the quarrel and stopped it.
I’ve really troubled Kuro-ojisan. I just hope that Kuro-ojisan will live a long and healthy life. I wonder if I could give him sacred tree tea as a gift.
[But I want to emulate the idea of giving a break for some guild staff. Like how Yuna-san gave a break to the children who were working for her to come here and play.] Jeremo
Jeremo-san heard a line that seems to be familiar.
[What about me? I’ve given them a break three days ago since it was a holiday.] Yuna
[That would need an inspection. I need to show my face there.] Jeremo
[Jeremo-san, you just did that since you wanted to go outside. And it’s also your role as a guild master to check the scene.] Anabelle
[So that means it’s a part of my work.] Jeremo
[But you’re drinking alcohol wherever you go, right?] Anabelle
[Wh, Why. That is…] Jeremo
[I know, but I’m not angry because I think it’s also a break.] Anabelle
Certainly, if he’s drinking alcohol, it may or may not because of work. The problem will depend on Jeremo-san’s feelings. That’s a big difference between going out to drink alcohol unwillingly and going out to drink alcohol happily.
Sometimes I was reluctant to go out and play a game, and other times I’m happy to go out.
If you think about it like that, it’ll also depend on the mood of the person you are dating.
[Look, don’t be stupid, do your job. It’s about time Kuro-ojisan comes, so please get the job done by then. You’ve been to the bathroom for quite a while.] Anabelle
Jeremo-san tried to derail the topic. But in the end, it was put back on track by Anabelle-san.
But I heard a word that I became curious about.
[Kuro-ojisan is coming?] Yuna
[We left the sea to Kuro-ojisan, so we get regular reports from him. Mainly about the seafood that we’re sending to Crimonia. The type and amount of fish caught varies from day to day, so he’s more familiar with it. We really need the information, so we asked him come to the guild.] Anabelle
Apparently, Kuro-ojisan is coming here.
If so, can’t I just wait for him here?
[Fina, Shuri. I want to say hello to Kuro-ojisan, so I’ll be staying here for a while? So how about both of you take a walk.] Yuna
[Shuri, what do you want to do? Do you want to go outside?] Fina
Fina asked Shuri. Apparently, Fina would decide after hearing Shuri’s opinion.
[I wanted to play with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.] Shuri
Shuri seems to be waiting for Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. I summoned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in cub form, then Fina and Shuri placed them on the table and started playing.
[Are, Young Lady. Your Bears, aren’t they small?] Jeremo
[Yeah. I heard that Yuna-san’s bears are big. Are those different bears?] Anabelle
[They’re the same bears. My bears are different from a normal bear, so I can make them smaller.] Yuna
[Really, you’re quite something, you know.] Jeremo
After waiting for a while, Kuro-ojisan came.
Some readers may have forgotten, since Anabelle and Jeremo, haven’t appeared in a long time.
Really, it’s been two years since then. ｗ
The story about Kraken was about two years ago. It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?
