Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 430
430 Bear-san, Serves Fruit Parfait
We arrived at the garden.
As usual, the royal garden was filled with colorful flowers. The flowers on the targui and bee trees were quite exquisite, but the flowers in the castle were also beautiful. In the midst of all this, Marcus and Shia were walking nervously.
As we walked along looking at the flowers, we saw the King, Eleanora-san, and the Queen. When Flora-sama spotted the Queen, she ran up to her happily. Behind her, a Hugging Bear cub chased after her. The Queen pats the head of Flora-sama as she comes over.
[Marcus, the Queen is here, too.] Shia
[Four royalty…] Marcus
[So this is where we’ll be eating.] Shia
Marcus pressed his stomach.
Right, if you think about it from a normal person’s perspective, there are four members of the royal family gathered here, so this is an unbelievable situation to be in.
[Yuna-san, we’ve been waiting for you.] Anju
Anju-san, Flora-sama’s personal maid, arrives.
[Hello, Anju-san.] Yuna
[It’s been a while. Please take your seats here.] Anju
Anju-san showed us to our seats.
His Majesty the King, the Queen, and Flora-sama are seated at a large circular table, and Tilia is seated on the other side of the King.
I sat next to Flora-sama, and then Eleanora-san, Shia, and Marcus took their seats.
Next to Marcus is Tilia.
When Flora-sama sat down in her chair, the Queen noticed Hugging Bear, and Hugging Bear backed away.
Seeing Hugging Bear, the Queen smiled and held out her hand towards Hugging Bear. When Kumakyuu didn’t move, the Queen left her seat and took Hugging Bear in her arms.
The time when the Queen wouldn’t let go of Hugging Bear came back to my mind.
[Cute child.] Queen
[Un. Bear-san is cute.] Flora
[That’s right.] Queen
The queen strokes Hugging Bear’s head and lets go of him.
I thought she wouldn’t let go of him just like last time, but my expectations were wrong. Hugging Bear also tilted his head, along with a <kuu ~ n>.
By the way, Swaying Bear is sitting on Tilia’s lap.
[So, Yuna. What’s this something cold and tasty?] King
The King eagerly asked.
[Don’t forget that I brought this for Flora-sama, just so you know.] Yuna
After all this time, why would I have to prepare something for the King?
Well, it’s really too late now, so I pulled out the bear-shaped freezer from the bear box and took out what I’ve made.
Pudding, topped with ice cream and whipped cream in a clear glass, with various fruits along with what Shuri picked from the island of Targui on top.
What I brought was a fruit parfait. I didn’t have a vertical bowl-like glass I used to have in my former world, so I used a ball-shaped glass bowl.
If I wanted to put pudding, ice cream, whipped cream, and various fruits on it, I would have preferred this.
[Ara, that’s a beautiful looking food.] Eleanora
[Yuna-san, is this ice cream?] Shia
[And there’s pudding and fruit on it.] Eleanora
Shia, who had eaten ice cream before and Eleanora-san, looked at the fruit parfait and gave their impressions.
When it’s hot, ice cream is the best. Then pudding and whipped cream. The fruits are also cold, so it’s delicious.
The ice cream alone wasn’t good enough, so I decided to make a fruit parfait this time.
[Oh, maybe it’s from the time when I was too busy working to get out.] King
The King seemed to have remembered something.
I remembered that the last time I brought the ice cream, the King and Queen were not there, so I left some for them.
[That was cold and delicious. I remember Zeref making a lot of noise about it.] King
[But it used to be so plain and not so gorgeous.] Queen
Before, there was just ice cream in a cup. This time there’s ice cream, pudding, and various chilled fruits on top.
One fruit parfait attracted everyone’s attention and they all wanted to grab it, so I took out a fruit parfait for everyone from the freezer.
[Yuna-san, I’ll help you.] Anju
Anju-san comes over and offers to help.
As I took it out of the freezer, Anju-san brought it to everyone. She also carried the portions of the King, Queen, and Tilia.
Then, when Anju-san tried to put Flora-sama’s portion in front of her.
[Anju-san, there’s a separate one for Flora-sama, so please send that one to someone else.] Yuna
The fruit parfaits were distributed to everyone except Flora-sama.
And finally, I put a special fruit parfait in front of Flora-sama.
[It’s Bear-san!] Flora
Yes, the fruit parfait placed in front of Flora-sama has ice cream in the shape of a bear’s face. It’s decorated with cookies and fruits.
[Ara, I see you made a special one for Flora-sama.] Eleanora
Eleanora-san compares her fruit parfait with the fruit parfait in front of Flora-sama. She seems to be wanting the same thing.
[It’s too much trouble to make the same for everyone, so it’s only Flora-sama.] Yuna
I didn’t made the same for everyone because it was indeed a lot of work.
Besides, it would be pictorially problematic for the King to eat a fruit parfait in the shape of a bear.
So, the bear-shaped fruit parfait will only be for Flora-sama.
Finally, I prepared a spoon and fork. When Flora-sama takes the fork, she looks up at me.
[Can I eat it?] Flora
[It’s okay.] Yuna
When I gave my permission, Flora-sama pondered a bit, then stuck her fork into the fruit and brought it to her mouth.
[It’s cold and delicious.] Flora
The fruit is also chilled. I think I’ll make sorbet next time.
[Some of these fruits I’ve never seen before.] King
Then the King took a mouthful of sliced banana.
Do you not get bananas around here?
[It’s delicious.] Tilia
[That’s true.] Marcus
[Where did you get all these fruits from?] King
[Hmmm, from different places?] Yuna
I can’t say anything about Targui, so I’ll try to trick them.
[Why the question form?] King
[Because it’s a maiden’s secret.] Yuna
[A maiden, she said.] King
There’s a damsel dressed as a bear in front of you. Do you have bad eyesight?
[All the fruits are delicious, and so is the pudding. There is more than one flavor, so you can enjoy it endlessly. It looks gorgeous with all the colorful fruits on it. It would stand out at a royal party.] King
The fruit parfait is garnished with bananas, oranges, peaches, strawberries, cherries, and grapes
[Yuna-chan, you have great taste in decorations.] Eleanora
[You have no taste in clothes, though.] King
The King looks at my outfit while Eleanora-san compliments me.
It’s not that I chose to wear it. It was God who made me wear the bear suit.
[What are you talking about? It’s so cute, isn’t it?] Eleanora
[There’s a difference between being pretty and wanting to wear it. Do you want to wear it?] King
[Hmmm, I wish I could dress my daughters like that.] Eleanora
At Eleanora-san’s words, except Flora-sama and the Queen, everyone looked at Shia.
[No, thank you.] Shia
Shia politely declined her mother’s wishes.
[Ara~ Marcus, don’t you think Shia would look good in it, too?] Eleanora
[Etto, that would be…] Marcus
Marcus began to feel troubled speaking when he was asked suddenly.
Marcus looked at Eleanora-san and Shia before opening his mouth.
[I think it’s best not to force her anything she doesn’t want to.] Marcus
After putting so much thought into it, he answered defensively for Shia.
But is wearing a bear suit something to despise that much?
Well, if I were in Shia’s position, I would feel the same way, so I can’t blame her.
[Oh, That was mean of you to turn down your mother’s request. Well, maybe I’ll ask Noa instead.] Eleanora
I think Noa would be happy to wear it. She even wanted to wear the uniform of the Bear’s Rest Shop.
Eleanora-san said this as she ate her fruit parfait.
[Flora-sama, is it good?] Yuna
[Un, it’s delicious.] Flora
She answers with a big smile.
Apparently, there was no fruit that she didn’t like.
Flora-sama eats fruit and pudding with cream on it. She has cream on her mouth, so I wipe it off with my handkerchief.
[Bear-san, it’s so delicious, but it’s almost gone now.] Flora
Flora-sama ate the bear ice cream. At first, she was hesitant to eat it, but after taking a bite, the bear ice cream soon disappeared.
[The fruits are delicious, but the pudding and cream go well together. And this cold food, ice cream is it? It’s so delicious.] Eleanora
Eleanora-san puts the ice cream in her mouth and she looks delighted.
The King and Queen both looked pleased as well.
[It’s good for hot weather.] Queen
[Just to confirm, is this kind of food eaten outside the castle?] King
[Hmmm, I haven’t seen it sold anywhere.] Eleanora
The King turns his gaze from Eleanora-san to Marix and finally Shia.
[I don’t know either.] Marcus
[I got it from Yuna-san.] Shia
The King looked at me after the two answered.
[Don’t tell me, again?] King
[What do you mean again?] Yuna
[I mean, is it a food no one knows about?] King
[Some people already know about it.] Yuna
I’m not the first one who thought of it.
[From where did you really…] King
The King looked like he wanted to say something, but he closed his mouth.
[If you want seconds, I still have some left.] Yuna
[Oh, yes. Please.] King
The fruit parfait was well received by everyone. And after eating, Flora-sama and Tilia were playing with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. The Queen was watching them smiling.
Eleanora-san is still trying to make Shia dress up in a stuffed animal costume, but we’re watching how she desperately refuses.
His Majesty the King is talking about knights. Marcus is listening to him nervously.
I took the rest of the fruit parfaits out of the bear freezer, and Anju-san took them to the freezer in the castle. Of course, there were also parfaits for Zeref-san and Anju-san.
Then the King and Eleanora-san went back to work, and at the same time, Marcus and Shia left.
[Yuna-san. Thank you for today. I feel like I’ve learned a little.] Marcus
[Yuna-san, it was a good match, but the fruit parfait was even better. Please let me have it again next time.] Shia
And since I was leaving too, it was time for Flora-sama and Hugging Bear to say goodbye.
[Just like you promised me.] Yuna
[U, un] Flora
Flora-sama sadly pulls away from Hugging Bear. Hugging Bear comes to me after crying <Kuu-n>. When Tilia sees this, she also silently leaves Swaying Bear.
Surprisingly, as an older sister, she doesn’t seem to be selfish.
[Swaying Bear-chan, Hugging Bear-chan. See you later.] Flora
Flora-sama waved her small hand.
<<Ku~u ~ n>>
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear also responded with a cry.
I returned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to the bear puppets.
Flora-sama looks sad, but Anju-san appears with a stuffed bear and hands the stuffed bear to Flora-sama.
Flora-sama hugs her stuffed bear.
It seems the stuffed animals are useful.
I was actually going to write this chapter from Marcus’ point of view, where he’s nervous because he’s surrounded by royalty, but I couldn’t write the story of the fruit parfait without Yuna’s point of view, so I gave up this time.
If I have time, I’d like to write it in SS.
I’ll start the new arc in the next post.
I hope you will look forward to it.
Thank you for your continued support.
If nothing happens, the next post will be made in three days as usual.
