Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 465
Bear-san, Contacts Mumroot-san
A carpet with a magic circle to seal and a magic circle to strengthen the seal has been prepared.
“Can you really do it with something like this?” (Ruimin)
“It’s a simplified version, but it’s okay. The only problem is that you have to keep pouring magic power into it.” (Mumroot)
In any case, they have to keep putting magic power into it to keep activating the magic circle.
But Mumroot-sama said that we would be fine if we gathered several wizards. Depending on the amount of magic, we can buy time.
I can gather the wizards if I tell my uncle. If we can temporarily strengthen the seal, we could defeat the heads of the serpents one by one, and we will save the country. I am now hopeful.
“But there’s a problem.” (Mumroot)
“A problem?” (Ruimin)
“There are only three magic circles to strengthen the seal.” (Mumroot)
The serpent has five sealed places, including the body. But since there are four heads, is it okay to just have three?
However, Mumroot-sama says that the most crucial part is the body that has been sealed.
He says that they can restore the head seals. The magical power will go back to the torso, and it will then be transmitted to other heads and fixed in a chain reaction.
We have to restrain the torso while also suppressing the other heads.
If so, we will be fighting two heads of a giant snake at worst. But that would be better than fighting four heads simultaneously, including the body.
“Sakura. You said you were the king’s niece, right?” (Mumroot)
“Yes, I’m a Miko now, though.” (Sakura)
“It doesn’t matter. As long as you can talk to the king, there is no problem.” (Mumroot)
“I can talk to him.” (Sakura)
“Then, I shall explain how to use this magic circle in case something goes wrong.” (Mumroot)
“To me !?” (Sakura)
“You want to do something, right? If anything happens to me, someone has to tell your country about this.” (Mumroot)
“If anything happens”. When I heard that word, I remembered what I had in my dream—the sight of everyone dying.
That’s right. It has not yet been decided that anyone can defeat the serpent. We still don’t know what will happen.
“I understand. Mumroot-sama, please tell me how to use the magic circle.” (Sakura)
When Mumroot-sama unfolded the carpet with a magic circle in it, he put a magic stone on it and taught me how to use the magic circle.
“Such a big magic stone” (Sakura)
“I’ll charge it to you later, so don’t worry.” (Mumroot)
“Yes, I will tell the King, so please request it later.” (Sakura)
I intend to return the favor, even if it means giving away all the property my parents left me.
When I respond seriously, Mumroot-sama starts laughing.
“I’m just kidding. You don’t have to.” (Mumroot)
“I’m just doing what I left behind in the past, so don’t worry. Moreover, I’m grateful to see Kagali.” (Mumroot)
“… Mumroot-sama.” (Sakura)
“Now then, we don’t have much time. You only get one shot at this, so make sure you learn it well.” (Mumroot)
I learned how to handle the magic circle from Mumroot-sama.
Then we put away the magic circle carpet in the item bag. Now, all we have to do is go back.
When we left the house, the cute bear-shaped doll held by Ruimin-san started to make a “ku~n, ku~n” sound. It’s a magic tool that allows you to talk to people far away.
Ruimin-san panicked for a moment but quickly put it in the palm of her hand.
Then I heard Yuna-sama’s voice.
After defeating the wyvern, I turned my attention to the building where the other wyvern was located.
The building with the seal that Shinobu risked her life to protect had collapsed, and a wyvern was rampaging inside the building.
I may not make it in time, but I can’t leave it like this.
“Just a little longer.” (Yuna)
After saying that to the unconscious Shinobu, I ran toward the building. I entered the crumbling building. The floor had collapsed, and there was the wyvern in the basement.
The wyvern was flailing about on the magic circle as if attracted to it.
The magic circle was flashing red and black.
As I expected, the seal was broken.
But that magic circle was the one that Shinobu risked her life to protect. It’s not a good idea to rampage near the magic circle.
I jumped down to the basement and used bear magic and my mithril knife to defeat the rampaging wyvern. The wyvern fell on top of the magic circle, blood flowing and soaking into the ground.
Part of the magic circle got broken, flashing red and black, and something like an eye moved. It’s waking up, even though Kagali-san suppressed it until now.
I couldn’t protect it.
When I understood this, the ground shook.
Will it be resurrected? I thought, but the shaking subsided immediately.
Do we still have a grace period?
But then the ground started shaking again, and the building came crashing down to the basement.
I have to get out of the basement immediately.
There’s no doubt that this was a sign that the huge snake was coming back to life. Just how much time do we have?
What about the other places? What about your side, Mumroot-san?
I took out my bearphone to check with them, but the bearphone started ringing. I channeled my magic power into the bearphone, and soon I heard Kagali-san’s voice.
‘Hey, bear girl! What’s going on? What was that shaking just now? Don’t tell me the serpent has returned?’ (Kagali)
“I’m sorry, I couldn’t make it. Maybe it will resurrect.” (Yuna)
‘What did you say?’ (Kagali)
It was my fault for taking too long.
It could have been prevented if I had not given a bearphone to Kagali-san and immediately gone to Shinobu’s place instead.
Or having a leisurely conversation with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
If only I had defeated the monsters in my assigned area quicker.
No, if I had given the bearphone to Shinobu and Kagali-san initially, this would not have happened.
I should have acted more thoughtfully. It was completely my fault.
‘What happened to Mumroot? Hasn’t he come back yet?’ (Kagali)
“I’m going to check it out now.” (Yuna)
I hang up with Kagali-san and call Ruimin’s bearphone.
“Ruimin, what’s going on over there?” (Yuna)
‘We’ve just finished getting ready and are on our way over there.’ (Ruimin)
“Then, come here quickly! Wyvern broke one of the seals. The snake is about to revive.” (Yuna)
To my brief explanation, although I can’t hear her voice through the bearphone, I can sense her surprise.
‘Yuna-sama! Is everyone okay!’ (Sakura)
I heard the voice of Sakura who seemed to have been listening to the conversation.
“Shinobu fought against the Wyverns and fainted. But she’s okay.” (Yuna)
‘Shinobu is…’ (Sakura)
‘Missy. Is it only one seal that got broken?’ (Mumroot)
‘Then I’ll buy you some time. I’m on my way, so keep the door open.’ (Mumroot)
“I understand. Hurry up and come.” (Yuna)
I hung up the bearphone call.
The ground shakes again. This time it’s bigger. The ground cracks.
I took Shinobu in my arms and left the place.
Just wait a little longer for your resurrection.
The shaking stops as if my wish has been granted.
When I came a little further away, I put Shinobu on the ground and took out the bear gate. Then, I opened the door to the elf forest and waited for Mumroot-san.
In the meantime, I will treat the wounded Shinobu until Mumroot-san arrives. I placed the bear puppet on her wounded face, healed the abrasions, and wiped away the blood. Her face became clean.
Next, I cut the clothes on her left shoulder with a knife, which was soaked with blood. A chainmail came out from under the clothes. Apparently, thanks to the chainmail, her wound was not fatal.
From the top of the chainmail, I closed the wound on her left shoulder. The bleeding has now stopped. She shouldn’t die from bleeding with this. I also treated the other areas where blood was flowing.
Shinobu wasn’t a cheat or anything; she was just an ordinary girl.
Shinobu got hurt but defeated the Wyverns. I think it’s incredible to defeat the Wyvern at her age. If she grows stronger like this, she will be quite capable.
Shinobu would probably be referred to as a genius.
Then, when Shinobu’s treatment was over, I thought I heard the voices of Mumroot-san, Ruimin, and Sakura from the door, and so the three arrived.
Sakura noticed Shinobu lying on the ground.
Sakura rushed over to her.
“As I said earlier, but she just fainted.” (Yuna)
“But there’s so much blood.” (Sakura)
She got upset when she saw the bloodied, torn clothes.
“I’ve done the first aid; she’ll be fine.” (Yuna)
Sakura held Shinobu’s hand and gave a relieved face.
At that moment, the ground shakes again, loudly.
“It’s shaking.” (Ruimin)
Ruimin loses her balance.
Then I saw Kagali-san coming, with her tail wagging.
“What? Mumroot. Did you just come back?” (Kagali)
“I just got here.” (Mumroot)
“So what about strengthening the barrier?” (Kagali)
“We’ve been preparing. We’re ready, but there’s a problem. We’ve only got three magic circles that can reinforce the seals.” (Mumroot)
“Just for three places?” (Kagali)
The huge snake has five locations, including the body.
But if we can only hold down three heads…
“Etto, it has four heads, so are we going to hold three?” (Yuna)
“We have to hold the body down. If one head is resurrected, the other heads will be resurrected by following through the body. The torso is the only one that absolutely has to be reinforced to seal. If I had more time, I could have done the rest by hand.” (Mumroot)
“There’s no time! Worst case scenario, we have to fight two heads.” (Kagali)
“Even so, I didn’t expect the seal to break so quickly.” (Mumroot)
It’s all my fault.
I could have done more.
“It’s not your fault. We were running out of time to begin with.” (Kagali)
“And there’s another problem.” (Mumroot)
“We don’t have enough mages to activate the magic circle. I thought there was still time before the resurrection, so I was going to ask the mages from this country to help me.” (Mumroot)
There were only three people here who could do it, Me, Kagali-san, and Mumroot-san.
“There is no time. I will have to do it myself.” (Kagali)
“No. To activate the magic circle, you have to keep pouring in magic power. What if the serpent revives, Kagali!? Only you and Missy here are the only ones who can fight it.” (Mumroot)
As Mumroot-san said, we will also need someone to fight the snake. Of course, myself, Kagali-san, and preferably Mumroot-san. No one can activate the magic circle to strengthen the seal.
“It’s such an unusable magic circle. Why did you prepare it?” (Kagali)
“I told you it was temporary. I thought we could do even that with a few mages in this country.” (Mumroot)
Just a few more days. No, even a day would have been enough to talk to the king and gather the mages.
But we don’t have time for that now.
The ground is shaking even as we speak. Gradually, the shaking gets louder and louder.
It could be revived at any time.
“I’ll do it.” (Sakura)
Sakura, who had been listening quietly, looked at us with serious eyes.
Mumroot-san and the others are back.
