Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 373
Bear-san Returns to the Island (Day 4)
As I wrote in the preface a while ago, the settings of Kryna-Hark’s book have changed.
I apologize for the inconvenience it caused to my dear readers.
Shuri is sleeping on Gentz-san’s back and Fina is walking with Tirumina-san. Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are walking with the children.
I talk to Noa who’s walking next to me.
[So where did Noa and your group go?] Yuna
[We went to the town. It’s nice to play in the sea, but seeing towns other than Crimonia is a learning experience, so I went out together with Misa and the others.]
[Yes, it’s learning. And It’s fun.] Misa
Misa agreed to Noa’s words.
[I was actually trying to find Yuna-san, but the director told me, <She went to a different place>.] Noa
By the way, the director was there listening to our conversation. However, it seems that she kept where I went a secret.
[That’s why I decided to go and look around the town with Misa. It’s nice to play at the beach, but it’s also fun to see the town. Also, it seems that the orphaned children seem to be conscious of our presence.] Noa
Noa sadly said so.
Hmmm, is that so?
I never felt that way. Nevertheless, I wonder if the commoners are uncomfortable with aristocrats.
But that may be unavoidable. Orphaned children have trouble obtaining food and even have a hard time surviving, since they don’t have parents. On the other hand, Noa, who was born into an aristocratic family, has no trouble eating, lives in a warm house, and wears beautiful clothes.
Moreover, she is the daughter of the lord and has the power.
They probably don’t know how to deal with someone like Noa, the daughter of a nobleman and lord. The old Fina was like that. Noa isn’t the kind of kid who is intimidating. For those who do not know her, the words of an aristocrat and the lord’s daughter may be a terrifying decree.
[But the children who work at the store treat me normally.] Noa
Well, since she goes to the store regularly, they will, of course, understand Noa’s personality.
[I really want everyone to treat me the same way, but it’s been difficult.] Noa
[The kids in the shop were okay with you, so the other kids should be okay with you as well, of course, unless Noa says something.] Yuna
[I won’t do it! …But I might have done it in the old days. I knew that I couldn’t just say my name in order to meet Fina and make friends with her normally. That’s right, so I refrain from asking as much as possible, but I will say it when I really want to.] Noa
Are you really 10 years old?
I think it’s usually difficult to understand that much.
I want your sister to somewhat follow suit.
[I want to be like my sister.] Noa
Apparently, Shia seems to be a good sister for Noa.
Well, Shia seems to be excellent at school.
And it looks like Noa is growing everyday.
That night, I finished bathing and eating, and when everyone fell asleep, I moved to the bear gate in Targui.
It was pitch black when I opened the door. There are no street lights and it’s being illuminated only by the light of the moon and the light of the stars.
I magically created light. The light that looks like a bear illuminated the surroundings.
[Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, let’s get going.] Yuna
The normal-sized Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear passed through the bear gate and followed me.
After confirming that Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear passed through the gate, I closed the bear gate. I installed it in a hurry at that time, but if I can take my time to install it, I would like to install it in a proper place.
I look towards the sakura tree. The sakura tree is not shining. If it was shining, the shining flowers might have been beautiful in the middle of the night. It’s a little disappointing. However, when that happens, the monsters will approach and it is the anticlimax of the flower viewing.
For the time being, I will go and collect the defeated Wyverns.
I don’t know how much a Wyvern is worth, but it’s a waste not to collect it because I also defeated it.
They must have been around here. Even if I open the bear map, the map was useless because Targui was moving. So, while looking around, I will look for the place where I fought against the Wyvern based on my memory.
But the atmosphere changes between day and night, so I’m not sure. Above all, the drawback is that you can’t see far ahead.
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear. Do you know where I defeated the Wyverns?] Yuna
I will also magically cast lights on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. the light with a bear’s face floats on both Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear started walking. The balls of bear light were moving together with them. Moreover, both of them were walking in the same direction. Apparently, they knew more than me.
As I silently followed them from behind, I saw a dead Wyvern.
Since there are no other monsters or animals on this island, it remained as it was when it was defeated. I safely recovered all Wyverns’ carcasses.
The rest were the Krakens. They were charred by the flames.
I have Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to take me to the place where the Krakens are. They’re in a weird state, like a scorched mess.
Hmmm. It’s definitely unlikely to be used as a material. Back in the game, you can get the material no matter how you defeat it, but apparently, the reality is not the same.
Well, It’s my bad for attacking it with flames without thinking about it carefully.
I don’t want the Kraken looking like this to end up in the bear box. But, if I just leave it as it is, it might attract a monster. If you think about it, isn’t it better to throw it away in the sea?
[But I want the magic stones. What should I do?] Yuna
When I muttered so, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear cried <Kuu-n> and rushed towards the corpses of the Krakens.
[Swaying Bear! Hugging Bear!] Yuna
When I called their names, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear already reached the corpse of a Kraken.
Then, after a while, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear returned while both of them holding magic stones in their mouths.
[…Thanks, both of you, but I’ll have to send you back at once.] Yuna
The remains of the Kraken were sticking to the bodies of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. I quickly returned them and then summoned them again.
Yeah, the beautiful/clean version of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are back. This is really convenient. Also, it’s good that there is no summons like them in the game. Depending on the game, the number of how many times I can summon them per day is fixed.
The rest of the Kraken remains is magically thrown into the sea.
The next destination I went to after recovering the Wyverns and the Krakens’ magic stones were the Kryna-Hark’s stone monolith. Now I don’t have Kryna-Hark’s book. It is correct to say that it disappeared. After reading the last page of Kryna-Hark’s book, I put it in the bear box. And when I tried to take it out, Kryna-Hark’s book had disappeared from the bear box.
I don’t know when it disappeared.
When I come to the stone monolith, I touch the stone monolith and poured magical power into it. Then, the stone monolith shines like the last time and a book appears.
Honestly, just what kind of mechanism did he put in it?
I will experiment.
And the result of the experiment. Here’s what I learned about Kryna-Hark’s book:
※ The book disappears after a certain distance from the stone monolith. Therefore, if it’s under that certain distance, it will not disappear even if you took it out in the sea. The stone monolith is at the top of the island, so the book disappears when I go back to the mainland.
※ When moving using the bear’s transfer gate. I can keep the book while the door is open. But when I close the door, the book disappears.
※ Even if I put it in the bear box, it disappears after a certain distance.
※ It is conceivable that the stone monolith and the book are connected by something like an invisible magical power and the book disappears after a certain distance.
※ The way the book disappears it becomes like small particles as if it were being breakdown into molecules. When I saw that phenomenon, I remembered my time in the game. There were weapons created by magical power. It was similar to how it disappeared.
※ Perhaps this book was created with my magical power. Therefore, a book will not appear without a certain amount of magical power. With that in mind, everything seems to fit in.
※ Well, it’s just within my imagination. However, it seems that Kryna-Hark, who makes things that can do such feat, was a great person.
Based on the above, it may be better to install the bear transfer gate near the stone monolith. I really like the front of the stone monolith. I’m planning to build a bear house, but if it’s near the coast, it may be visible to the boats approaching the island.
Therefore, I want to build a bear house on the inner side of the island.
However, it seems difficult to find a good place because it is dark. Should I come again at noon?
[Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear. Isn’t there an inconspicuous place near the stone monolith?] Yuna
I gave up and asked them. They may find it, like when they searched for the Wyverns.
However, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear cried <Kuu~n> and shook their heads sideways.
That’s true. They can’t tell me a place they’ve never been to. I walked towards the sakura tree. Then, I didn’t notice it in the daytime, but there was a path next to it.
Is there something here?
Following the path, I arrived at a slightly open place.
I threw the ball of magic light forward. Illuminated by the bear light, a collapsed house came into view.
Did anyone live there?
I think Kryna-Hark may have lived there.
It’s hard to see its location because it is surrounded by trees. But it’s clearing is wide enough that you can see the sky. The sun shines in this area during the daytime.
I will set up a bear house in this place. I took the bear house for travel from the bear box next to the ruined house.
The number of bear houses in my inventory is running low. Next time, I have to make a batch of full-blown bear houses. Even if the exterior is easy to make, I have to buy the household items inside. Since I have to modify the bath and small parts, it is convenient to make them all at once.
Next time, when I make the bear house, I think I’ll make about 10 at a time. It may be good to make varieties of large, medium, and small.
I entered the newly installed bear house and returned to the bear house in Mereera.
It’s already late in the night so I’ll go to bed.
The travel arc about to end?
But there are a lot of things I still want to write.
※Sorry, I would like to work on the book version during Golden Week, so I would like to take a little break. I will notify you again when the posting during the holidays starts.
