Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 374
Bear-san Plays with Noa (Day 5)
The matter about Targui is over and all I have to do is take some time to explore. Fortunately, I’d be happy if it could pass near some continent. It’s a little disappointing that I can’t go where I like, but when I think of it as a game event, I can have some more fun. I hope it goes to faraway places.
And a new morning begins. To start a new day also means that I have to choose a different swimsuit. The first time is a one-piece swimsuit, the second time is a separate swimsuit, so this time I have to choose a third one.
I also told Sherry that I only brought three swimsuits with me. But of course, it’s a lie. Please spare me from any more swimsuits.
I choose the swimwear by elimination. I chose a black and white bikini. This is the last swimsuit to choose from. Next time I have to wear a swimsuit, I will go for the one-piece swimsuit I chose first. As soon as I wear a bikini swimsuit, I’ll wear the bear costume on top of it.
Each of them is supposed to act separately today. At the breakfast stage, there are already groups that will go to town and groups that will play in the sea. Anzu and the other locals will guide them to the town just like before. Lurina-san, Gil, and other members of Crimonia will take care of the ones going to the sea.
I would like to propose a third plan, which is sleeping at home, but that wish didn’t come true.
[Yuna-san, have you finished changing clothes?] Noa
[Yeah, I did.] Yuna
When I replied, Noa, Misa, and Shia in swimsuits entered the room.
[Why are you dressed as a bear?] Shia
[She’s right. You look like a bear.] Misa
I’m supposed to play with Noa and others today. It seems that Fina and her group are with Tirumina-san and the others, so today I was thinking of staying home and relaxing. But I promised to play with Noa. I went to the island with Fina and the others yesterday without inviting Noa and Misa, so I couldn’t refuse them today.
And today, neither Marina nor Eru are near Misa.
Misa told them that she doesn’t need any escort today. Marina tried to stay by her side because she was working, but Misa refused. I think she was carefully considering Misa’s feelings. That’s why it was decided that I will be taking care of Misa today.
The two who got a break from guarding Misa went out saying that they would reluctantly go to the Adventurer’s Guild. It seems that they won’t accept any work and act separately, but instead, they went there to exchange information between adventurers. Listening to the stories of the locals should tell you a lot about the area, so it seems that it is the basic rule for adventurers to show up in the adventurer’s guild when they go to a new town.
It seems they want to know about what kind of monsters live near the town and what kind of work they have regarding it. Also, it seems that you can understand the situation of the town by looking at the job requests.
If there are a lot of requests to subdue monsters, it can be seen that a lot of monster problems are occurring. You can also see if there are bandits. Besides, having too many escorts can be dangerous by itself. That’s why today I took the place of Marina and Eru.
I brought three people to the beach.
[Today I’m with Yuna-san and Bear-san.] Misa
Noa and Misa were riding Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. Shia and I were walking behind them.
When we arrived at the beach, the children were waiting for me.
[Yuna-oneesan, you’re late ~]
[Take it out quickly!]
[Calm down, I’ll take it out now.] Yuna
When I come near the sea, I took out the bear waterslide. It’ll be troublesome if the local children and strangers came and got injured in places I don’t know, so I clean up at the end of the day.
[Then, I’m next.]
[Did you do the preparatory exercise properly?] Yuna
The children replied and entered the bear waterslide. Lurina-san, Gil, and Liz-san were the adults watching them, so they should be okay.
Then, I will put out bear’s play equipment in the simple pool with a fence. Afterward, Karin-san and Elena-san started playing with the little ones.
[Does Noa wants to play?] Yuna
[Yuna-san, what do you want to play?] Noa
If anything is fine, I want to sleep.
[Yuna-san, are we bothering you?] Misa
[Ah, no that’s not it.] Yuna
Here is a girl who can read my heart.
[Is that true? Then Yuna-san. we’re going to swim. Please take off the bear-san costume quickly.] Noa
I reluctantly take off the bear costume.
Why is it embarrassing to take off the outer clothes even though I’m wearing a swimsuit underneath? After all, is it because I have never been to the pool or the sea since elementary school? If my backside is satisfactory, I’m sure I’ll take off my clothes and play without worrying about it.
[Today is the same as my swimsuit.] Noa
My swimsuit is a black and white bikini. Noa is blue and Misa is green. It’s a bikini swimsuit in a different color. But my swimsuit doesn’t have frills. Noa and Misa have cute frills on their bikini swimsuits.
All of the bear equipment was stored in the bear box, leaving only the polar bear puppet. I left it to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, who were stationed at the seaside house. I asked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to monitor the children.
Then the swimsuit wearing Noa and Misa started pulling my hand while Shia was pushing my back.
And so, I swam and played with the bear waterslide. The number of local children increased compared to yesterday, probably because rumors have spread about the waterslide.
If they play nicely with the other children, I’ll permit them.
I played with Noa and the others at the beach.
[Yuna-san, here I go!] Shia
A ball of leather flew towards me. Though I tried to hit it back but… no way, I didn’t think I would play like this.
[Yuna-san, you’re too slow.] Noa
Even if you say that, if I don’t have my bear equipment, I’m just a girl with no physical strength. Even if I can perceive it in my brain, my body doesn’t move as I wanted to. Thanks to wearing the bear equipment, I felt it that way.
While wearing the bear equipment, my thoughts and actions were synchronized. It works as intended. However, if I’m not wearing the bear equipment, it will be a jarring movement.
And as I move around a lot, it ends up in the usual sight.
[Yuna-san, are you okay?] Noa
[No, I can’t move.] Yuna
As usual, I’m weak and get easily exhausted from playing, so I’m lying down at the beach house. I can’t move even one step anymore. Noa, Misa, and Shia are all fine. I want them to share that physical strength with me because I don’t have enough.
In my former world, I was a hikikomori, and in another world, I’m wearing an overpowered bear costume, so I’m not really exercising properly. I’m very weak.
[Even though I’m not Yuna-san, I’m tired too.] Misa
[We played that much for the first time in a long time after all.] Noa
Noa and Misa were sitting next to me, who’s currently lying down. Shia brought us drinks from the fridge.
[Oneesama, thank you.] Noa
[Thank you very much.] Misa
We received the drinks from Shia.
The cold water is satisfying. It’s been a while since I exercised and sweated that much. By the way, I got some sunscreen from Shia, so I’m not worried about a sunburn. Even if I get sunburn, it’s fine since I can cure it with magic just like the last time.
[I’ll be resting for a while, so the three of you can go ahead and play.] Yuna
[I’m tired too, so I’ll take a rest together with you.] Noa
Noa said that, so Misa and Shia had to rest together with us.
As I lay down into the beach house, it became noisy outside.
[What with that bear?] Cliff
[Well, Bear Missy probably made it.] Gran
I heard some familiar voices.
[This voice, is that Father?] Noa
Noa reacted to the voice.
Looking towards the entrance of the beach house, Cliff and Gran came in.
[Why is Father here?] Noa
[And grandfather too.] Misa
Noa and Misa ran up to them.
[I came here to show Old Gran to Mereera and also was wondering if Noa and Shia were bothering everyone out here.] Cliff
[I did not.] Noa
[I have not.] Shia
[It looks like it.] Cliff
Cliff is looking at the children playing with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in the sea. As a substitute to me who’s currently resting, I sent Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to play with them.
Noa is keeping her promise to Cliff not to keep Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to herself.
[And I also had to thank Yuna for taking care of Shia. Is Yuna around here?] Cliff
I am here. I’m behind Noa.
[If you’re looking for Yuna-san, she’s right there.] Noa
Noa looks at me who’s behind her.
[Is that you Yuna? You don’t look like a bear this time. For a moment, I didn’t recognize you.] Cliff
I don’t want to hear you say the bear is a part of me.
As expected, bear = me. I’m aware of it.
[Even so, you look like that at sea, huh.] Cliff
I’m wearing a swimsuit and I’m covering myself with a large towel over my shoulder. Cliff is looking at me, nay staring at me, so I hid under a towel.
[Father, it’s rude to stare at a girl so much.] Noa
Noa stood in front of me and protected me.
Thank you, Noa.
[Don’t get me wrong. I’m just looking at Yuna’s appearance because it was very unusual.] Cliff
[Still, it’s not good.] Noa
[I understand, don’t get angry.] Cliff
Cliff looked away from me.
Then I go to the next room and came back wearing my bear costume.
Ah, let’s calm down.
[So when did father arrived?] Noa
[Yesterday. I already talked to the mayor of this town, The Guildmaster, and so on. So now, I wanted to see your faces.] Cliff
Cliff talked to the commercial guild about making a direct carriage service towards the city of Sheleen, where Misa lives.
There were talks about the carriage being prepared by Gran-san’s town and the fare of the carriage ride. The distance is shorter there than traveling via Crimonia. It is said that the sales of seafood will be gradually increased in the city of Sheleen. If new food comes in, it will revitalize the city.
It seems that the story had already been decided by discussing with Mylene-san in Crimonia. There is no such Mylene-san here, however. I looked behind Cliff, and instead of Mylene-san, there were Masrika and Itia. The two came along.
[So, Bear Missy, what’s that?] Gran
Gran-san asked me while looking at the bear waterslide.
[It’s called a slide. It’s a type of play equipment used to slide from a high place then plunge into the sea or something like that?] Yuna
[It’s fun. It’ll spin you around.] Misa
Misa happily explains to Gran-san with gestures.
[You made something weird again.] Cliff
How terrible to call it weird. Even though I thought off and added various things to it so that everyone could enjoy them.
[What are you going to do with this town?] Cliff
[What are you planning to do?] Gran
I don’t understand what they meant.
[Are you planning to make such play equipment and gather people with it?] Gran
[I have no such intentions. I just made it so the kids can play with it.] Yuna
It’s boring just to swim. Some children cannot even swim. That’s why I prepared the waterslides and other playthings, like the floats.
[Then, will you get rid of it when you go home?] Cliff
[Yeah, I will.] Yuna
I can’t leave such objects lying outdoors. It would be terrible if someone got injured by playing with it after we got home. So I’m going to get rid of it when it’s time to go home.
[Can you still say that while looking at those children?] Cliff
Cliff points at the bear waterslide. From there, I can hear the energetic voices of the children.
[Wait for me!]
The children are playing happily on the bear waterslide. In addition to our children, there are also local children playing there.
I somehow understood what Cliff wanted to say. Local children may be saddened by clearing up the waterslide. That said, it may be dangerous to just leave it out in the open.
Besides, the waterslide is only useful during the summer. It only gets in the way, especially in winter.
Hmmm, what should I do?
Cliff was able to join safely.
However, the travel arc is likely to end after a few more episodes.
As I said last time, when I post next time, I will take a rest for a while to work on the books.
I will resume at around the end of Golden Week. (It’s a schedule)
Therefore, the deadline for SS of store advantage will be until the next post.
※Thank you for bookmark 38000. I look forward to working with you.
