Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 418
Bear-san, Got Asked By Rikka-san
So I took Fina and Ruimin to Rojina-san’s blacksmith shop.
[Once you get what you asked for from Rojina-san, you’ll leave, right?] Shuri
[Yeah, we’ve been here for quite a while, we should probably head back soon.] Fina
Fina is using the bear phone to talk to Shuri so that Shuri and Tirumina-san don’t have to worry about her. However, it feels like I’m connected to Shuri and Fina while they’re speaking to each other. It’s a bit of a hassle, but if I don’t do it this way, the Bearphone won’t work, so it can’t be helped.
Ruimin wanted to use it, but since Ruimin was the only one in the elven village with a Bearphone, she couldn’t contact me since I’m with her.
When we entered the store, we were greeted by Rikka-san, who was working as a storekeeper.
[Welcome, everyone.] Rikka
[Where’s Rojina-san? I was told that everything we asked for will be ready today.] Yuna
[It’s ready. It’s in the backroom, come on in.] Rikka
We followed Rikka-san to the backroom. When we entered the backroom, we found pots, pans, and other cooking utensils stacked on top of each other, as we had ordered them.
[These are for Yuna-chan, these are for Fina-chan, and the one with the most items is what Ruimin-chan asked for. Can you check them for me?] Rikka
The one who has the least item is Fina, mine is a little bit more, and the one with a lot of items is Ruimin.
Fina ordered items for the store and her home. I bought a lot of things as spare utensils for the bear houses. I also ordered some big pots and pans that I don’t plan to use. Ruimin got the most because her neighbors asked for them.
[Fina. Let me know when you’re done checking and I’ll put it in my bear bag.] Yuna
Fina checks the items while looking at her notes. Ruimin is checking her items while looking at many notes. I also check briefly. Pots, pans, and other cooking utensils…… That’s probably everything I ordered. I don’t remember, because I ordered it randomly. I’m not going to be using it anytime soon anyway, so that’s not a problem.
[I’m good.] Fina
[I’m also good.] Yuna
[Ah, wait, give me a minute.] Ruimin
Fina and I finished checking our items, but Ruimin haven’t finished yet because there were too many.
[It’s okay, take your time. Then, Yuna-chan and Fina-chan, please confirm the payment and sign here if you’re okay with the items.] Rikka
Fina and I checked the receipt for payment and signed it.
[Do you have enough money, Fina? If not, I’ll pay for it.] Yuna
It’s for store use. So there’s no problem if I pay for it.
[It’s okay. I have the money from mom.] Fina
Fina takes out money from her item bag. I also took out some money and put the cooking tools in the bear box.
[I’m done with my checks. It was fine.] Ruimin
Ruimin, holding many notes, finished checking her items. Then she checked the price and paid.
[Ruimin, are you okay with the money?] Yuna
Because the quantity of her item was the largest, the money she had to pay would be also huge.
[Yes, everyone has prepared more money than they should have. And I even got a discount, so I’m fine.] Ruimin
[Rikka-san, are you sure about giving a discount?] Yuna
[Don’t worry. We calculate the cost of materials properly, so we still make a small profit. Though, it’s not enough to buy alcohol for my father.] Rikka
Rikka-san declared with a smile. Wouldn’t that be a matter of life and death for the dwarves though?
Dwarves have an image of drinking a lot of alcohol. I muttered to Rosina in my mind, <I’m sorry for your loss>.
After we had paid and put our cooking tools in the bear bag, the door opened and Rojina-san came in.
[Oh hey, girls, you’re here?] Rojina
Rikka-san looks happy.
[You girls are going back to the Royal Capital, right?] Rojina
We’re not really going back to the royal capital though.
I’m planning to use the bear gate in the house I bought in the city to get to the elven forest, send Ruimin back, and then go straight back to Crimonia.
But Rojina-san, who doesn’t know that, thinks we’re going to the royal capital.
[Well then, Missy, I have a little favor to ask you.] Rojina
Rojina-san glanced at Rikka-san for a moment, and then he looked at me.
[Can you take Rikka to Ghazal?] Rojina
Rikka-san shouted at Rojina-san’s words.
[You can’t dwell on Ghazal’s disappearance forever. I know you like Ghazal. Go and see him already.] Rojina
[I’ll take care of the store. Besides, if you get rejected, just come back home.] Rojina
[Dad. But what about Mom?] Rikka
[I’ve already given my permission.] Wyola
Wyola comes out from behind Rojina-san.
[Go ahead, Rikka. The store will be fine with just the two of us, and if we need more people, we can just hire some.] Wyola
[Besides, you’re already an adult. So do what you want. Yuna-chan, who is Ghazal’s acquaintance, is here for a reason.] Wyola
[Moreover, she’s stronger than most adventurers, so I can leave you in good hands. And since you’re all girls, you’ll feel comfortable during travel.] Rojina
Well, if it’s a mixed party like Jade-san’s group. I don’t think they’ll feel safe leaving their precious daughter in the hands of male adventurers.
[But, even if you say something like that out of the blue. Yuna-chan will be troubled, right?] Rikka
The only problem is that I can’t use the bear gate. But Rojina-san has been a great help to me, and he’s a mentor to Ghazal-san and Gordo-san. I don’t want to refuse him.
[I don’t mind. But what will you do if Rikka-san got rejected?] Yuna
I understand how you feel, Rikka-san. But I don’t know how Ghazal feels. Maybe there is a woman that he is dating that I don’t know about. If Rikka-san were to be rejected, that would be the worst thing that could happen to her. I have never been in love before, so I can’t comfort her.
[Yuna-chan! Why do you say that?] Rikka
Rikka-san slapped my body. It doesn’t hurt, but I’m the one who’d be in trouble if it came to that. I’ve never comforted a woman who’s been rejected by a man. I can’t ask Fina to do that either, can I?
I glanced at Fina. She’s only ten years old. You’ve never been in love before, have you?
[Well, it might be a hassle then, but please bring her back safely. I’ll make sure to pay you for the escort.] Rojina
I don’t want to just imagine coming back with a depressed Rikka-san. If that happens, it might be a good idea to use the bear gate to bring her back quickly.
[U~u, why are you talking about me getting dumped? I thought you were going to send your daughter away?] Rikka
[I know that Ghazal cared about Rikka. But I also know that he saw her as a sister.] Rojina
[I’m sure he still cares about you. I have no doubt that he still cherishes you. Now it’s all up to you, Rikka.] Rojina
[Now go.] Rojina
[Dad, Mom, are you sure about this?] Rikka
[Have a nice trip.] Wyola
[Go before I change my mind.] Rojina
[Thank you.] Rikka
Rikka hugged her parents.
[Go on, you don’t have to work today, just go get ready.] Wyola
Rikka-san left the room.
[Missy, I’m sorry about this, but please take care of my daughter.] Rojina
Rojina-san bows his head deeply.
[Also, if Ghazal dumps Rikka, please hit him for me.] Rojina
[In that case, could you also give my share as well.] Wyola
Rojina-san and Wyola-san asked me to give two servings of knuckle sandwiches to Ghazal-san. But if I hit him as hard as I could, I’d be in big trouble, wouldn’t I?
Then we helped Rikka get ready.
[U~u, that’s a lot of stuff to take with me. But it will cost a lot of money to buy it in the capital. But if Ghazal has a girlfriend, it will be useless.] Rikka
[I’ll carry your luggage in my item bag, so you won’t have to worry about being rejected by Ghazal-san.] Yuna
[Yuna-chan, please tell me it’s going to be okay because I won’t be rejected there.] Rikka
I don’t know how Ghazal-san feels about you, so I can’t say that.
Rikka-san prepares her luggage, mainly clothes. I put them in the bear box.
[Are you sure you don’t want to tell anyone you know that you’re going to the royal capital? If you want, we can delay our departure a little longer.] Yuna
[But then, if Ghazal rejects you, it will be difficult for you to return. So send me a letter if you decide to stay in the royal capital.] Rojina
That’s true. If I said I was going to a guy in the royal capital and came back rejected, I’d be too embarrassed to come back to my home city.
Then, after Rikka-san finished preparing for her departure, she invited us to dinner, but I refrained because she might not be able to have dinner with just her family for a while.
I promised Rikka-san that I would meet her at the inn tomorrow morning and we parted ways.
By the way, I politely declined the offer of an escort fee.
The reason for this is that I was given an iron bear. Normally, the iron that comes out of the Gate of Trials belongs to the blacksmith. But it was given to me, I’m getting too much.
Therefore, the escort fee is no longer required.
