Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 357
Bear-san Comes to the Harbor (Day 3)
Credits to: valiant, Philip
[Yuna-oneechan, what are we having for lunch?] Shuri
Shuri asks while rubbing her belly. Certainly, I’m also hungry. There is a lot of food in the bear box, so you might want to eat it on the boat. Both of them don’t seem to get seasick and shouldn’t have any problems.
However, Kuro-ojisan who was listening to our conversation makes another proposal.
[Then, you should eat at the harbor. By this time, the children brought by the bear girl should be eating there as well.] Kuro
According to Kuro-ojisan, all the fishermen are preparing the fish they caught this morning for lunch. It seems that they even prepared meals for us after the boat ride.
When we got near the harbor, we can smell the delicious scent. My belly rumbles a little. I look at Fina who’s walking next to me.
[I’m also getting hungry.] Fina
Apparently, she heard my rumbling belly.
U~, that’s embarrassing.
This bear equipment. The defense is excellent, so I wish it could also block the sound of my rumbling stomach. This is a function I want as a maiden.
When we arrive at the harbor while being invited by the scent, I saw the children and Tirumina-san eating. This seems to be a continuation from yesterday, there are fishermen grilling fish and shellfish and making miso soup containing shellfish and wakame seaweed.
Kuro-ojisan went to the fishermen and asked them to give us a meal. The fishermen glanced at me and said, <Eat as much as you like>. I was able to have a meal peacefully.
[Yuna-chan. Have you finished your business?] Tirumina
Tirumina-san comes over while watching the children eat happily. Shuri hugs Tirumina-san, who’s patting Shuri’s head.
[I’ve only given them some light greetings. And because of that, we’re supposed to get on Kuro-ojisan’s boat. Tirumina-san, it seems like you and the others are already having a meal?] Yuna
[Yes, not only did they let us ride on the boats, but they also prepared us a meal. I’d feel bad if I refuse when they go this far.] Tirumina
Tirumina-san looks troubled.
I agree with Tirumina-san. Even though I’m not paying for it, they let the children rode on the boat and gave them a meal. I am reluctant to receive free courtesy.
[Hey, Yuna-chan. What did you do in this town? I know Yuna-chan created the tunnel. But there’s something else, right?] Tirumina
Tirumina-san doubtfully asked me.
[There’s nothing else.] Yuna
Tirumina-san’s face approached mine. She squinted her eyes while staring at my eyes. That’s definitely the eyes full of suspicion. I knew I would lose if I looked away, but I couldn’t stand it so I turned my eyes away.
[So then, do you girls know what she did?] Tirumina
Tirumina-san looks at her two daughters.
[What did Yuna-oneechan do? It’s a secret.] Shuri
[It’s a secret.] Fina
Oh, Fina and Shuri are on my side against Tirumina-san. It’s a moving moment. But this is not a harbinger of their rebellious phase, right?
[Ara, can you tell your mom about it?] Tirumina
Tirumina-san hugged them playfully and began to tickle.
[Ah, mom, please stop. Tickling me!] Fina
[Mom, It tickles~] Shuri
[Come on, if you don’t say it, I’ll tickle you more.] Tirumina
They’re quite close. A family that plays with each other. It was something they couldn’t do before when Tirumina-san was ill. It makes me smile when I look at them. And, in the same way, there is Genz-san who’s smiling while watching the commotion. Gentz-san is also a parent. But if Gentz-san enters that circle, even though they’re his family now, it will still be a crime. Perhaps he understood that as well and that’s why he doesn’t try to join them.
Well, it’s difficult even for a real father to get into the bonding of mother and daughters. If my father did that to me, I would definitely punch him.
[Yu, Yuna-oneesan, please help.] Fina
As I look at Fina with a smile, Fina and Shuri were laughing while reaching out for help. Tirumina-san did not let them escape. Though it only looks like they’re playing with each other, but I wonder if I should help.
[The town was attacked by a monster, so I just defeated it.] Yuna
[Is that so?] Tirumina
I’m not lying. I just blurred out the Kraken part.
[Yes, so they’re a little grateful about it.] Yuna
As I explained it, Tirumina-san released Fina and Shuri. Fina and Shuri sat down and both were out of breath, they were tired from laughing.
[Mom, you’re terrible.] Fina
[That’s because you hid it from your mother. Well, because it’s Yuna-chan, I believe that she defeated another ridiculous monster. That’s why I’m asking.] Tirumina
Tirumina-san didn’t ask me about the blurred part. Moreover, I don’t know if she will believe me even if I tell her the truth.
[But I was convinced after seeing various things. When I was walking around the town, the bear figurines and accessories are sold as amulets. Normally, you don’t sell such things. They seemed to be worshiping the bear as a god. I’ve never heard of such thing.] Tirumina
What did Tirumina-san said just now?
I’m sure it’s a mistake. I must’ve heard her wrong. When I get home, I have to clean my ears.
Do I even have an ear-pick?
[See, I bought it too.] Tirumina
Tirumina-san, took out a small bear from her pocket.
Are my eyes were getting crazy? I rubbed my eyes and checked it again. A small bear is on the palm of Tirumina-san. It looks like it wasn’t a mistake.
The bear has a string so it looks like a bear key chain and can be attached to a bag or something.
[Bear-san! I want it too!] Shuri
Shuri snatched the bear key chain from Tirumina-san’s hand.
[Etto, they are selling it?] Yuna
According to Tirumina-san, she found it at a place where small items are sold. It seems that it was sold as an amulet. The effect is that even if you go out to the sea, you can come back safely.
When I heard that, I stopped thinking.
I don’t want to think about anything.
[I’m sorry, Young lady.] Kuro
Kuro-ojisan’s voice restarted my thoughts. Apparently, Kuro-ojisan was listening to us.
[The bear is like a good luck charm for the fishermen.] Kuro
An amulet, Tirumina-san also said such a thing.
[Some people are still afraid of the sea and some are worried. However, the bear amulet seems to calm them down. For that reason, they can safely fish when they go out to the sea with the bear amulet. It gradually spread.] Kuro
Amulets are made to worship a God, right? You pray for safety from the God. The bear theme is about me, right? But I’m not a God.
However, I can’t complain when I’m asked by Kuro-ojisan who is indebted to me. Besides, it cannot be said that it is useless since I heard that they can go fishing with a peace of mind thanks to the bear amulet. If I said it’s no good, they may not be able to go fishing. I understand that it is difficult to cure mental trauma.
[Well, just don’t spread it to other cities.] Yuna
And so I asked for them to limit it.
[Thank you.] Kuro
I really don’t want them to spread it. However, even if they sell the bear amulets, the people from other cities will just laugh with their nose and not buy it.
I look at Tirumina-san, Shuri, and Fina happily holding the bear amulet.
Nobody will buy it, right?
Then, while eating, I asked Tirumina-san about today’s schedule.
[When the meal is over, we plan to split into three groups.] Tirumina
According to Tirumina-san, there will be 3 groups: The going out for fishing group, the exploring the town group, and the returning to the bear house to rest group.
She said that the director and Nifu-san will return to the bear house in case someone get seasick, tired, or sleepy. And it seems that the members of Mereera group, led by Anzu, will guide the children who wanted to visit the town.
Lastly, Lurina-san and other adventurers will be with us in the fishing group. By the way, Tirumina-san said she’ll be with the fishing group.
Noa is coming. She has a plate with food in her hand.
There’s also food in her mouth. Noa is an aristocratic lady, so she shouldn’t talk while there’s food in her mouth. I poked Noa’s bulging cheeks with a bear puppet.
[Wha- what is it?] Noa
[You’re eating quite deliciously, but I’m just wondering about your not-so-noble like manner.] Yuna
[Being a noble has nothing to do in here. I’m eating together with everyone.] Noa
That’s right. When I first met her, She felt like a noble lady. Maybe if she didn’t met me, she wouldn’t change, would she?
Or perhaps she had this kind of personality even before she met me. I surely hope so.
In contrast, Misa and Shia are behaving like a real noble lady should. They’re eating properly while sitting, not while walking around.
[That’s right… Yuna-san… I’ll learn fishing later… I’m looking forward to it because it’s my first time… I’ll show you a big fish that I caught…] Noa
(TN: Noa is talking while chewing.)
Apparently, Noa is also in the fishing group. Even so, Noa seems to be enjoying the sea so much. Maybe this is also because neither Cliff nor Lala-san are here.
[Yuna-san, did you also come here to go fishing with us?] Noa
[I just came here because Fina and Shuri wanted to get on the boat.] Yuna
[Then, why don’t we take Fina and Shuri along with us and go fishing together?] Noa
She went and asked Fina and Shuri, who were quietly eating their food at a distance.
[Do you want to go fishing?] Noa
[We’re catching the fish by ourselves?] Fina
[Catch a fish!?] Shuri
It seems that Shuri was very interested in fishing.
[Why don’t we play a game about who can catch a bigger fish? Misa and Oneesama will also join us.] Noa
Fina and Shuri, who are invited, started worrying.
I’m also interested in fishing, but I also promised to ride Kuro-ojisan’s boat. They both looked at me as if they were in trouble.
[You can join them if you want to. I’ll be riding on Kuro-ojisan’s boat by myself.] Yuna
They seemed to be reluctant.
Well, I’ll ask Kuro-ojisan about it.
[Then I shall tell you, because I know more than anyone else where big fishes can be caught.] Kuro
And now, not only we’re riding on Kuro-ojisan’s boat, but he will also teach us on how and where we can catch big fishes.
The bear seems to have become an amulet for safety and people are praying to it when going out to the sea. w
It can’t be helped because it was a bear who defeated a Kraken.
It seems that reservations for SS benefits have begun at Seven Net.
The content is undecided.
I will report it as soon as I understand it.
Please wait for a while.
