Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 461
Shinobu and Sakura’s Thoughts
Author’s Note 1:
I’m sorry for the delay.
This will be from Shinobu and Sakura’s point of view.
After parting ways with Yuna, I ran.
I didn’t expect this to happen when we came to the island.
We crossed the sea on Yuna’s bear.
I had promised not to tell anyone about how we crossed the ocean riding on bears, so I only told the king, who’s the only one who knew that the bears could walk on the sea, that we’re coming to the island.
I wonder if anyone has informed the castle about the monsters.
Perhaps someone who has seen the monsters flying over the sea has reported it to the castle. Even so, they wouldn’t know about the seal, either.
I stopped running, took out a piece of paper and something to write on from my pocket, and wrote a short sentence: “Monsters are attacking the island, and there’s a fear that the seal will be broken.”
I then summoned a small bird ‘pīsuke’ from my hand and put the paper in a tube inside a small tube at its neck.
“Watch out for monsters.” (Shinobu)
Pisuke flew away after letting out a chirp ‘pii’.
I summoned Hayatemaru to make up for the delay in writing the letter.
When I came to the seal’s location, I saw a Volglass flying over the building where the seal was located. It looked as if it was looking for a place to enter the building.
I looked for any Wyvern around, but none was to be seen.
I don’t see any wyverns.
I wondered why there’s no Wyvern to be found. But I don’t need to think about it; I can only think of Yuna.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear discovered the monster attack.
Also, Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, and Yuna communicated with each other. If Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear even knew the number of monsters, it would explain why no Wyverns are here.
Yuna took on the place with the most monsters. So we can assume that’s why she took on the two sites on the right.
Now that I think about it, there were more of them flying in the direction Yuna was headed to when we first spotted the wyverns.
I can only sigh.
It’s a crisis in another country. No one would complain if she fled. I can’t believe that Yuna was willing to take on such a dangerous task.
When I first saw Yuna, I was surprised. Especially on her appearance. Moreover, the bears were running on the ocean. At first, I couldn’t decide if Yuna was the hope that could defeat the legendary serpent.
But the girl dressed as a cute bear was powerful. She defeated my master, whom I was no match.
I’ve been training since I was a little girl. People told me that I had a talent for combat. I thought I was strong. But there were people above me. I have never been able to beat my master. There were indeed others who were stronger than me. Even so, I was confident that I would not lose to a girl of my age.
But when I saw the fight between Yuna and my master, I realized that I was weak.
Yuna was strong. She was far superior to me in weapons mastery and magic firepower.
Yuna had seen the battle between my master and me. In other words, Yuna knew what I was capable of. And because she knew my ability, she took on the place with the most monsters.
And she didn’t even tell anyone about it. She chose it as a matter of course.
A mysterious girl dressed as a cute bear.
Yuna revealed her secrets to defeat the giant snake.
A magical device that lets you communicate to people from far away?
A magical tool that can take you to distant places in an instant?
Such secrets one cannot easily reveal.
That was why she made us do contract magic. What was she going to do if I refused or ran away before she could make the contract?
Sakura-sama is a kind person; she’s the kind of person who won’t sell you out even if she doesn’t do the contract.
Kagali-sama is not the kind of person who would turn her back from the gratitude she owed to Yuna since she was able to meet Mumroot-san.
I’ve done the worst things.
I’ve investigated Yuna, tested her, tricked her, and forced our wishes on her. And yet, Yuna was not angry. I would never betray Yuna’s feelings anymore.
I unsummoned Hayatemaru.
I reached into my pocket and pulled out a dagger. I took a deep breath, and then ran towards the Volglass.
Just because I’m in the easiest spot doesn’t mean I’ll take it easy. I must defeat the monsters as soon as possible and head for other places.
And I’m going to help Yuna.
I used the fence around the building to jump up to the roof of the building. When I reached the top of the building, the Volglass reacted.
Let’s get this over with.
I put magic power into the dagger and swung it out. From the dagger that I swung out, a blade of wind headed towards Volglass.
The blade of wind was easier to imagine and sharper when it comes from a weapon or other object rather than from your hand.
That’s why I thought it was amazing when I saw Yuna pull it out of her hand. It was also sharper and stronger than the magic I used.
Such a difference in talent.
Such an unreachable realm.
There are geniuses out there, aren’t there?
I can’t help but become jealous of what I don’t have.
I have to fight with what I have.
I shot a wind blade from my dagger and defeated the Volglass.
And I finished killing all the Volglass.
It was a close battle, so I got bloodstains on my body.
“I’m done here.” (Shinobu)
Now then, I wonder if I should defend this place or head elsewhere as reinforcement.
Initially, I planned to defeat them and then head elsewhere. But even while I’m fighting one, the number of Volglass suddenly increases. There was a possibility that new monsters would come.
I climbed up a tall tree nearby and checked my surroundings.
When I looked in the direction Yuna had taken, I saw a wyvern flying. As I thought, Yuna’s place has the most wyverns. I can also see wyverns flying over to Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, and Kagali-sama’s place.
I wonder if I should go somewhere else or stay here and prepare for the monsters.
But my worries quickly vanished.
I saw three wyverns flying towards me from the sea.
They won’t make it easy for us.
Wyverns came flying through the sky. In my mind, I wondered if they would pass me by.
I’m pretty filthy.
But if they pass by, I’ll have no choice, do I?
I stood at the highest point on the roof of the building.
I don’t know if it’s because they found me or if they were summoned by the serpent’s seal like the other monsters, but the wyverns descended towards me.
“Is that all of them…” (Shinobu)
The wyverns are enormous when you see them up close.
This may be dangerous.
Can someone please come here?
I know it’s impossible considering the situation I’ve seen from the top of the tree.
I will protect the seal even at the cost of my life.
I clenched my dagger.
Swaying Bear-sama and Hugging Bear-sama cried.
They said that the monsters were approaching the island and heading for where the serpent was sealed.
Since I was in danger, I had to use Yuna-sama’s mysterious door to get to where Ruimin-san was.
Yuna smiled and told me not to worry, and the door in front of me slowly closed.
I fled alone to a safer place. I knew that I would only be a liability if I stayed on the island.
So I swallowed the words, “I want to stay.”
Even if I stay, I can’t do anything.
I waited for Ruimin-san at the door.
If I wait here, Ruimin-san will come for me.
The door was surrounded by a forest and some high rocky mountains.
This is where Ruimin-san, Mumroot-sama, and the other elves live.
As I was looking around, I heard a sound of a horse running towards me.
Ruimin-san appeared on a horse. She got off her horse and came over to me.
“Sakura-chan, are you okay?” (Ruimin)
“Yes, I’m fine. I got here before the monsters arrived.” (Sakura)
“I see. But you’re safe now. You’ll be safe here.” (Ruimin)
“But they all stayed behind to protect the seal of the serpent. I was the only one who escaped.” (Sakura)
I’m frustrated at the fact that I can’t do anything.
“Just leave the fighting to Yuna-san, and you’ll be fine. Yuna-san, she may look so cute, but she’s powerful.” (Ruimin)
As I looked down, Ruimin-san called out to me gently.
“That’s true. But I wish I could fight. It’s hard for me to stay in a safe place and let everyone else fight.” (Sakura)
Because I am a helpless child, I could have fought with everyone if I were an adult. I’m frustrated that I don’t have any power.
When I was apprehensive, Ruimin-san asked me with narrowed eyes.
“Well, Sakura-chan. You’re as old as you look, right?” (Ruimin)
What does that mean?
“I’ll be ten this year.” (Sakura)
“What about it?” (Sakura)
“Sakura-chan, you don’t act like a child, so I was wondering if you’re older than me.” (Ruimin)
“I don’t act like a child?” (Sakura)
People always say that I’m a child.
“Yes. Because you think like an adult, Sakura-chan, I think it’s okay for children to rely on adults. My grandpa always says that it is the role of adults to protect children. But I don’t know if Yuna-san is an adult, though.”(Ruimin)
“In that case, the same can be said for Shinobu.” (Sakura)
I don’t think Shinobu and Yuna-sama were adults, but I don’t believe they are children either.
But unlike me, they can protect themselves.
“I want to have the strength to fight too.” (Sakura)
But even if I had the strength to fight, I don’t know if I would be able to fight monsters.
I may be too shaken to move.
Yuna-sama and Shinobu, were they not afraid to fight?
“That’s the same for me. My village had a big problem before. I couldn’t do anything about it. I couldn’t fight along with Yuna-san. That’s why I decided to help my grandpa. You should also do what you can, Sakura-chan.” (Ruimin)
Ruimin-san reached out.
I grabbed her hand.
I can’t fight.
I don’t know how much I can help, but I’ve decided to help Mumroot-sama.
“Okay, we need to hurry back, so hold on tight.” (Ruimin)
I got on the horse and held on tightly to Ruimin-san.
Ruimin-san steered the horse.
