Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 356
Bear-san Learns About The Mysterious Island (Day 3)
Credits to: valiant, Philip
Fina and Shuri are playing with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, squeezing their hands, and rubbing their stomachs. They also looks like they’re playing with puppies. While looking sideways at these two people, I kill time while listening to Anabelle-san and Jeremo-san talk about the town. And as we’re having a conversation, Jeremo-san is working while looking at the materials.
Anabelle-san watches over Jeremo-san while taking care of me. While I was talking with them, Kuro-ojisan came.
[I heard that a bear girl came…] Kuro
When he entered the room, he looked around the room as if he was looking for me. And as soon as he found me, he quickly come to me.
[I’m sorry that we seemed to bother you yesterday.] Kuro
As soon as he got close to me, Kuro-ojisan apologized.
[I told them not to bother the bear girl, but it seems that they really wanted to thank the bear girl, so I couldn’t stop them because I wasn’t there either.] Kuro
[It’s okay, all the fishermen gave us delicious food, and the kids were happy too, so please don’t be so upset with them. I’m actually quite happy since the kids are having fun on a boat ride today.] Yuna
[It would be helpful if you could say that, but I’ve scolded them for the time being.] Kuro
It seems that he already scolded them, without asking me.
Even so, it is helpful to have a powerful person or a great person like Kuro-ojisan on my side. Just a word from Kuro-ojisan and all of the fishermen will listen to my request. I really grateful to Kuro-ojisan.
[So why are you here?] Kuro
[Yuna-san was waiting for Kuro-ojisan] Anabelle
Anabelle-san answered before I could.
[It’s something about how you’ve been taking care about me. I’d like to thank you for it.] Yuna
[It didn’t seem to be very useful though.] Kuro
It would have been even more difficult if Kuro-ojisan hadn’t done anything. Kuro-ojisan has a great presence as a breakwater. I’ll be in trouble if I don’t have that breakwater from the fishermen. It’s scary to think about what would happen if the breakwater broke.
[That’s not the case. I’m grateful to Kuro-ojisan and I’m looking forward to your continued support.] Yuna
[That’s because I made a promise with you.] Kuro
A promise with me. Please do not spread the matter of me subduing the Kraken. Kuro-ojisan kept his promise to prevent of any information leak related to me.
I put a small box of sacred tree tea leaves on the table so that Kuro-ojisan can stay healthy.
[What’s this?] Kuro
[It’s a kind of tea that can relieve fatigue. Please drink it when you’re tired. The effect is guaranteed.] Yuna
Cliff tasting it is proof that the sacred tree tea is not poiso-… I mean, that’s it’s effective. I heard that he was relieved of his tiredness and his work was progressing smoothly.
[I want Kuro-ojisan to stay healthy forever.] Yuna
Mainly for my sake.
[But be careful not to drink too much. Just because you feel fine, you’re still overworked and I don’t want you to collapse.] Yuna
[Is it a tea that can make you feel better? Thank you. If I drink this, I can beat some more sense into those young’ns.] Kuro
Kuro-ojisan happily received the small box containing the tea leaves of the sacred tree.
Perhaps I gave him something that I shouldn’t give. I apologize to the young fishermen in my heart. Please do your best and become a good fisherman.
And Jeremo-san is looking at the small box containing the tea leaves of the sacred tree.
[Jeremo-san, do you want some too?] Yuna
[No, I don’t need it. If I get well, I’ll get more work, so I don’t want it.] Jeremo
Jeremo-san intensely shakes his head from side to side as he refuses.
[I would rather sleep and get rid of my tiredness.] Jeremo
I agree with Jeremo-san. It is definitely better to sleep and recover than to recover physical strength with nutritional supplements. Sleep is my identity, and rolling on the bed is justice. So even if Anabelle-san wants it for Jeremo-san, I won’t give it.
[So, it’s a regular report, but has anything changed?] Anabelle
After the conversation with me, Anabelle-san asked Kuro-ojisan who’s sitting in a chair. Kuro-ojisan took out the paper from his bag and gave it to Anabelle-san.
We missed the timing to leave the room, so I decided to join in with their talk. Shuri isn’t interested in such a conversation, so she kept playing with Hugging Bear.
Well, I’m glad Shuri won’t get bored that way. Fina puts Swaying Bear on her lap and she’s stroking his head while listening to the conversation.
[It’s written on this paper, but nothing has changed. The docking is going well. The only problem is that an idiot recklessly approached the island and broke their boat.] Kuro
[Were they okay?!] Anabelle
Anabelle-san was surprised by Kuro-ojisan’s report.
[Don’t worry. The boat may have sank, but fortunately the whirlpools subsided so they were helped by another boat. I already told that idiot not to approach that island so close.] Kuro
[What are you talking about?] Yuna
Island, whirlpool, sinking boat.
I can’t tell what they’re talking about just by using fragments.
[Ah, it can’t be helped that you don’t know about it. Well, I only heard about it from the fishermen who are out in the sea. It seems that an island suddenly appeared about 5 days ago.] Kuro
[An island suddenly appeared?] Yuna
I don’t think islands usually appear just like that. Does that mean that an underwater volcano erupted?
Or was it a phenomenon peculiar to other worlds?
[I can’t believe the island just suddenly appeared.] Anabelle
Anabelle-san seems to be disagreeing with Kuro-ojisan’s story. Well, even if you think about it normally, an island doesn’t appear out of nowhere.
[Every day, the fishermen out in the sea can’t be unaware that there is an island. I’ve confirmed that myself since I’ve been fishing for decades, but there wasn’t an island there before.] Kuro
Well, if you’ve been fishing for decades, the sea is like a garden to you. You can’t overlook something big like an island.
[Is it true that the same thing happened in the past and the fishermen were making a fuss about it?] Jeremo
Jeremo-san, who was quietly listening to the story, opens his mouth as if he just remembered it.
[Ah, it was three years ago. And before that, five years ago. I remember it before. Suddenly, there is a mysterious phenomenon that the island appears and disappears after a few days.] Kuro
It’s not an island that comes out when low tide.
According to the story, it’s offshore.
[I checked the location of the island, but I found out that it is a little different from the last time. I have checked the sea where the island was in the past, but there was nothing like an island in that area of the sea.] Kuro
[In other words, the island is moving?] Yuna
[Islands don’t do that.] Anabelle
[The island is moving?] Shuri
Shuri, who was playing with Hugging Bear, joined the conversation. Apparently, she was interested in the moving island.
[I think so. Out of nowhere, the island appears and then drifts somewhere.] Kuro
Is it a floating island?
I think it depends on the size, but it is a floating island and may come near Mereera periodically. Then somehow that explains it.
[Is that island the same as the one that appeared before?] Yuna
[I didn’t check it when it was nearby. But then again, it was a few years ago, so don’t remember the shape of the island.] Kuro
Well, that’s right. Even I don’t remember the shape of what I saw only once a few years ago.
[There are many rock walls on the island, and there are many whirlpools around the island, making it difficult to get close to the island. Some people have tried to go to the island in the past, but all of them had their boats destroyed. Some people died when their boat sunk, so I banned them from approaching that island, but there are always young people heading for the island without permission. Fortunately, I’m glad that they were safe with the help of other boats. However, it’s a problem because some people act with enthusiasm.] Kuro
Some fishermen don’t even listen to Kuro-ojisan’s words.
Even so, is there such an island? Perhaps there might even be a treasure just sleeping there.
[And they’re so stupid using the possibility of a treasure as an excuse. How do you put a treasure in a place that no one can approach? And if you put it on a moving island, you’ll have to go get it eventually. They’re stupid so they want to approach the island.] Kuro
Excuse me. I also thought that there might be treasure.
Just like what Kuro-ojisan says. Even if there are pirates and their treasure is hidden on a moving island, it cannot be recovered and may be taken by the others. Thinking of the common sense for such an island, you wouldn’t hide your treasure there.
[Is there a treasure?] Shuri
Shuri eyes were shining as she asked.
[No, there’s none. If there was such a thing, it would have already been taken by another person.] Kuro
Shuri is disappointed to Kuro-ojisan’s reply. Did she want the treasure that much?
I want it.
[By the way, you girls didn’t get on the boat ride?] Kuro
Kuro-ojisan asked Fina and Shuri, who are holding Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
[We got it on one when we came here before.] Fina
[I got on~] Shuri
[We got on Damon-san’s boat.] Yuna
[Ah, that time. But it was still chilly at that time. When you go on a boat ride now, it feels different from that time.] Kuro
[Is that so?] Fina
Shuri and Fina leaned forward.
[Oh, it’s different. Depending on the season, the sea shows a different scenery every time. Even a different time of a day, it can easily change. The sea is a mysterious place.] Kuro
We’ve never been on a boat that much. It really conveys what Kuro-ojisan wants to say. Of course, it depends on the season, and the sunlight shining down from the sky is also different. The power of the wind is also different. Some winds will be pleasant and some can be cold.
Sometimes the wind is strong and the waves are big, and sometimes it is calm. And depending on the time, you should see a different scenery. If you go in the morning, you can see the sunrise, and if you go in the evening, you can see the sunset. It’s a seascape that can change depending on the time of the day.
Listening to Kuro-ojisan’s story, the two began to get hooked on riding a boat.
[Would you like to ask Damon-san later?] Yuna
[Is it okay?] Fina
They look happy with my words. After all, it seems that they wanted to get on the boat. It may have been a pity to accompany me and take them around with me to greet everyone.
I have been spoiled by the kindness of these two.
[I’ll ask him, but I’m sorry if it doesn’t work.] Yuna
It’s shameful to make a promise without the other person’s permission and make them happy by getting their hopes up just to shoot it down when we find out it’s no good.
[Then, let’s get on my boat.] Kuro
It was Jeremo-san who was surprised, not me.
[It’s okay. I’ll let them ride my boat. Besides, if the girls rode on Damon’s boat, the people around would complain about it.] Kuro
Ah, so there would be complaints, then.
[Can I get on Ojisan’s ship?] Shuri
[Oh, you can ride it. I’m the best when it comes to maneuvering.] Kuro
[The best!] Shuri
[The youngsters can’t beat me to it!] Kuro
Kuro-ojisan puffed up his chest as he proudly declared.
And that is how a mysterious floating island came out. I think it will be the main story of the second half of the sea edition.
We also have to go on an adventure.
