Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 364
Bear-san is Taking A Walk on the Island (Day 4)
Credits to: valiant
[Still, this is a really beautiful place.] Shia
Walking along the coast of the island. Surprisingly, there is little vegetation and it is easy to walk. There are also places where you can go inside the island. Not everything seems to be covered with vegetation.
As Shia said, the view is good and beautiful as you look far away. However, when I look under the cliff, the whirlpools are spinning, so I feel a bit scared. But there is no sense of discomfort even if it is said to be the boundary between heaven and hell.
My biggest worry is whether Fina and the others will fall. Both Fina and Shuri followed my instructions and they’re riding on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, so there is no need to worry about them.
Looking at Shuri, I can see that one of the two apples I picked up earlier is in Hugging Bear’s mouth. The other apple is being held in her small hand and she’s munching on it deliciously.
[Hugging Bear-chan it’s delicious, right?] Shuri
If the fruit looks this good, then it might be a good idea to set up a bear gate so I can pick it up at any time.
And if you keep walking a little further, you will find a banana tree. I didn’t think there was even a banana here. However, the banana was green and was unlikely to be eaten immediately. I want to come to pick it up next time. (TC: FYI to Yuna, there’s a type of banana that comes in green color even blue and it’s ripe.)
I see the vegetation growing around me again.
Well, I thought it was strange to walk around here. But then, this island is strange in many ways.
[Yuna-san. Isn’t there something wrong with this island?] Shia
[You think so too, Shia?] Yuna
There are fruits and plants growing here regardless of region or season. That’s a palm tree, isn’t it? It feels like there are plants from around the world on a small island. If the island is moving around the world, there is a good chance that birds will carry seeds.
But it will be a different story if it just spurts up.
[I can’t say for sure because I just saw it in the picture book back at the school, but the plants from different regions are growing on this island.] Shia
[You’re right.] Yuna
I nod to Shia’s words.
At first, I was happy to have Orens and apples, but I don’t think there are bananas or palm trees as well. No matter how many places this moving island went to, it is impossible for the plants found in different environments to grow here.
Did we come to a strange island perhaps?
For the time being, I checked it with my detection skill, but there is no reaction from any monster. Maybe I’m just thinking about it too much, well that’s fine.
[Is it really that strange?] Fina
Fina asks as if she doesn’t notice what’s wrong.
[That’s right. It’s strange that that tree is near the apple tree.] Yuna
I pointed at the banana tree
[Plants grow differently depending on the area. Of course, there are things that are growing in the same environment, but there are also things that grow specifically in that area.] Shia
[I see. I didn’t know.] Fina
Well, she didn’t go to school and I’m sure there are plants that she’s seeing for the first time, so it can’t be helped that she didn’t know it.
[I only knew about it at school, so you should not be ashamed.] Shia
Then, while checking the surroundings, we make a half-lap around the island.
After about half a lap around the island, we reached an open area. There is no reaction from monsters so far. It seems that there are no monsters on this island. We haven’t come across any animals either.
[U wa~a, it’s beautiful.] Shia
We’re at a little elevated spot and we can see the horizon. That’s pretty. The empty sea continues.
[The sea continues forever] Fina
Fina spreads her hands and takes a deep breath. Shuri imitates her.
[Yuna-oneechan. What’s beyond of this sea?] Shuri
[Well, I don’t know because I’ve never been there. But I think there will be land if you go all the way, and I think there are strangers living there.] Yuna
[I wanna see it.] Shuri
[Me too~] Fina
[Yeah. I also want to see it someday.] Yuna
Someday I want to go to another continent. I wonder if I will find the country of Harmony and Peace if I go from here.
But it’s a hassle to ride on a ship for days.
After getting off of the hill and trying to go around the other half, Fina found something.
[Yuna-oneesan, what’s that?] Fina
There is an unnaturally large stone at the spot where Fina is pointing. When Fina descends from Swaying Bear, she approaches the large stone.
[Yuna-oneesan. There are letters written on this stone.] Fina
We run up to Fina after hearing her say that.
[Is this a stone monument?] Yuna
Letters are engraved on the stone monument that was taller than me.
For a moment, I thought it was someone’s grave, but it seems different. The stone monument may have been left unattended for a long time and it’s slightly dirty. I used water magic to clean the stone monument.
Etto, what’s written on it?
〈〈I say to those who came to this island. I Pray that those who have come to know this island are not malicious. If anyone happens to come to the island, leave before the island starts moving. 〉〉
What does it mean? Malicious people? How do you know when the island will move?
(TN: Anyone got a better name?「クリュナ＝ハルク」[Kuryuna – Haruku]. Dunno the gender either.)
When I try to read more, Shia was surprised to see the letters at the bottom.
[What’s wrong?] Yuna
[The name Kryna-Hark, right here.] Shia
Shia points to the place where the name is written.
[Yuna-san, you don’t know!?] Shia
Yeah, I don’t know since I’m from another world. Perhaps a super celebrity and it’s bad that I don’t know? I look towards Fina and Shuri.
[I don’t know.] Fina
That’s good. I have two comrades who didn’t know as well.
Apparently, it’s not a very famous name. From the point of view of Shia, I thought it was a name that everyone knows. If it was a celebrity that everyone knew, I might have been suspicious.
[Eh ~~, don’t you three know? It’s Kryna-Hark. Kryna-Hark!] Shia
Even if you keep repeating that name many times, I don’t know what I don’t know. Whether it’s a historical figure or a celebrity who is alive today, it’s not in my knowledge for another world history of the past few months.
[So who is this, Hark-or-whatever?] Yuna
[It’s Kryna-Hark. An A rank adventurer and very famous among adventurers.] Shia
Shia says with all her might, but I still don’t know what I don’t know.
[I’m sorry, I don’t know.] Yuna
[Yes, I don’t know.] Fina
[I don’t know.] Shuri
Shia got depressed after being told by three people.
[I thought every adventurer knew.] Shia
[So, is that Kryna-Hark person famous?] Yuna
[Yes. Some adventurers are aiming for him, and it’s written in school textbooks.] Shia
[Even though he’s an adventurer?] Yuna
[If anything, he’s famous as an adventurer. He goes to dangerous areas and places where no one goes. He discovers plants that no one knows or defeat monsters that no one has seen before. He’s a great person. Thanks to him, I’ve learned a lot of new facts.] Shia
Shia explains with excitement.
Kryna-Hark was such a famous person it seems.
[In other words, this stone monument was made by an adventurer named Kruna-Hulk?] Yuna
[I think so, unless someone used Kryna-Hark’s name as a false identity.] Shia
[Well, there’s no point in pretending to be someone else on an uncharted island like this one, so it’s more likely to be real.] Yuna
I will read the continuation of the words on the stone monument.
〈〈If anyone who knows about this land show up here, then I’m sure you are a person of good faith. Touch the stone monument and pour your magical power into it. However, those with evil intentions are not allowed to touch it.〉〉
And finally, the name is engraved. I tried to touch it and pour in my magical power, but then, (peta peta) Shia frantically touched the stone monument. Multiple times.
[What are you doing?] Yuna
[Etto, because it says, touch the monument those who have good intentions. But there is no reaction.] Shia
And then, (peta peta) Shuri is also touching it, imitating how Shia touched the stone monument.
[Shia, looks like you’re malicious, aren’t you?] Yuna
[Yuna-san that’s terrible.] Shia
[Yuna-oneechan. I’m not a bad girl ~] Shuri
Even though only I told Shia that, Shuri also puffed her cheeks.
[It’s a joke. Aren’t you lacking in magical power part?] Yuna
It was written, 〈〈pour magical power into it〉〉.
I touched the stone monument on behalf of the two. And tried to pour in my magical power. Then the stone monument began to shine.
[It’s so bright.] Shia
[U~u, it’s too bright~] Shuri
Everyone closed their eyes and couldn’t see anything. Fina hid Shuri on her back. I also blocked my view with my bear puppet. And then, the light gradually disappears. When I opened my eyes and looked at the stone monument, a book came out of the stone monument. And then, the book slowly moves towards me, it fell on my bear puppet.
A book from the stone monument?
[Yuna-san, are you okay? And what’s with that book?] Shia
[It came out of the stone monument.] Yuna
This is definitely a different world and I am surprised by the occasional unexpected event.
[Yuna-san. Maybe it’s a book of Kryna-Hark!] Shia
[What’s that?] Yuna
[It’s a book about the adventures of Kryna-Hark. It’s a book that is also trusted as rare knowledge.] Shia
It looks like a rare book that seems to appear in the game.
[I’m impressed that such a book is here. Yuna-san, please show me.] Shia
She’s staring at the book with a momentum that would jump at me at any moment.
[I also want to see~] Shuri
[I want to see it too.] Fina
I opened the book so that everyone can see it. Etto, <Only people with good intentions can have this book. It cannot be picked up by those who have malicious intent>.
I don’t know how to judge people and when a person says that they have good intentions, it makes me cringe. Am I one of those who have good faith? I’m a pile of different personalities myself. Isn’t there a mistake in the criterion for good faith somewhere?
When I try to read more, everyone came up with unexpected words.
[It’s pure white.] Shuri
[There’s nothing written on it.] Fina
[Etto, isn’t this supposed to be Kryna-Hark’s book!] Shia
[What are you talking about, it’s written properly, you know?] Yuna
[Well, it’s pure white and there’s nothing written on it. Isn’t that right, Fina-chan, Shuri-chan.] Shia
Shia asked the two for confirmation.
[Yes, there’s nothing written.] Fina
[Yeah, there’s nothing written.] Shuri
Apparently, everyone really can’t see the words in the book.
[It fits in Kryna-Hark’s book. Apparently, only I can see it.] Yuna
Does that mean that magical power has something to do with it?
[Is that so? U u~u, too bad I can’t read Kryna-Hark’s book. Yuna-san, what does the book say?] Shia
I lightly flip the page of the book and read it.
[Apparently, it says Kryna-Hark’s exploration and investigation of the island.] Yuna
Perhaps the mystery of this island is also written here?
A mysterious book. Get!
The name of the first A rank adventurer came out.
Next time, posting may be delayed by one day. I’m sorry if I’m late.
