Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 481
Bear-san Returns To Crimonia
Author’s Note 1:
It’s a little longer than usual.
“Ano, Yuna-san. What is a hot spring?” (Ruimin)
While I was thinking about something, Ruimin asked me. Apparently, Ruimin has never been to a hot spring before.
“Hot springs are the hot water that comes out of the ground.” (Yuna)
“Hot water from under the ground? Isn’t that just water?” (Ruimin)
“It’s hot water. It’s a natural bath. It takes away your fatigue and is good for your health.” (Yuna)
I sometimes heard a voice saying, “If you’re tired, you can just wear the polar bear costume,” but baths are different. It’s the bath! The hot spring! The thing that takes away the fatigue of the mind.
“Hot water from underground……” (Ruimin)
Ruimin starts to think. She’s interested in hot springs.
“Well then, the next time you come here, how about coming over for a hot spring bath?” (Yuna)
We could stay at the inn where Konoha-san is. If King Suou gives me a house with a hot spring, I can stay there.
“Yeah. Of course, Fina too.” (Yuna)
Ruimin and Fina looked happy at my words.
“It seems that was settled then. It’s about time we go home. Missy, can you open the door?” (Mumroot)
When Mumroot-san stood up, Ruimin did the same.
“Thank you, Mumroot-san.” (Yuna)
“I’m the one who should be thanking you. I’m glad I was able to tie up some loose ends I left a long time ago.” (Mumroot)
You forgot about it, though.
“Ruimin-san. Please come visit us anytime. You are welcome.” (Sakura)
“Yes, I’ll come.” (Ruimin)
“I hope you will tell me stories about the elven village then.” (Sakura)
“I too would like to know about your country, Sakura-chan.” (Ruimin)
“Yes, let’s talk about it next time.” (Sakura)
They smiled at each other.
“Mumroot, you’ve been a big help.” (Kagali)
“Don’t worry about it. Besides, it was Bear Missy who played a leading role this time. What I did was nothing comparable.” (Mumroot)
“She really is one hell of a girl, isn’t she?. You almost killed Orochi all by yourself.” (Kagali)
It was not by my strength alone. If it had been a fully revived Orochi from the beginning, I would not have been able to defeat it so easily. Just imagining it, it’s a nasty opponent. Mumroot-san and the others suppressed the resurrection, and Kagali-san defeated the Wind Orochi, which I had no countermeasure against.
“Also, like your granddaughter, you should show your face once in a while. Or perhaps it would be good if I went there myself. And when I do, be sure to have some sake ready.” (Kagali)
That means through my bear gate, right?
Well, if I’m not busy, that’s fine.
I opened the door to the bear gate, and Mumroot–san entered first, while Ruimin entered the bear gate, waving her hand. Sakura and Fina also wave back.
“I’m going to clean it up later, so don’t worry about the door.” (Yuna)
I closed the bear gate.
“Well then Fina. Let’s go home too.” (Yuna)
“What? You’re leaving too?” (King)
“Of course, because I’m afraid I’m going to get caught up in something troublesome if I stay here. Besides, don’t you all have a lot of work to do cleaning up after what happened with the Orochi?” (Yuna)
“About that, can I keep these magic stones?” (King)
King Suou turned his attention to the Orochi’s huge magic stones on the table.
“At present, only women would be recognized as the slayers of the Orochi. So I would like to borrow these magic stones as a proof of defeating the Orochi. If possible, I would like you to give it to me. Of course, I will pay for it accordingly.” (King)
The green magic stone belongs to Kagali-san. But the other magic stones were obtained by me after defeating the Orochi.
Even so, I also understand King Suou’s feelings. Orochi was a monster that tried to destroy the Land of Harmony in the past. Kagali-san guarded it for many years. It’s the magic stone of such a monster. The country would want it.
“Of course, you don’t have to decide now. If you don’t want to give it away, Missy, I’ll return it. But I would like your permission to borrow it.” (King)
“Sure. You can have it.” (Yuna)
Everyone was surprised at my words.
“Yuna-sama, are you sure you want to do this? Yuna-sama, these are the proofs that you’ve defeated the Orochi.” (Sakura)
“I’m not going to spread the word that I killed the serpent anyway, so that’s fine.” (Yuna)
However, as a former gamer, I wanted those magic stones that seemed valuable. But still, I think this country should have the magic stone of the Orochi, not me.
“That would help us a lot.” (King)
Similarly, we talked about the material of the Orochi, but I received some of it.
Well, as for me, I just need to get some of the materials of the Orochi.
“So when will Yuna be back here? I want to finish my preparations by then. I’d like to have a few days if possible.” (Kagali)
“I know you’re going to be busy. I’ll come back when everything has calmed down.” (Yuna)
“Even if you say when everything calms down, how do we contact you? Our birds can’t fly that far, you know?” (Kagali)
It would be pitiful to have that little bird fly all the way to Crimonia.
I think for a moment and look at Sakura.
“Sakura, here.” (Yuna)
I handed a Bearphone to Sakura.
“Are you sure?” (Sakura)
“Yeah, you can’t talk to Ruimin directly, but I can connect you to her. Also, call me if you need anything.” (Yuna)
“Yes, I understand.” (Sakura)
Sakura happily clutches her Bearphone in her tiny hands.
“What is that bear?” (King)
“It’s a magical tool that lets you talk to people far away. When the matter of the Orochi is settled, tell Sakura and I’ll come back.” (Yuna)
I may come back before then, though.
“Such a magic tool exists!?” (King)
King Suou tried to reach for the Bearphone Sakura was holding, but Sakura held the Bearphone to her chest as if to protect it.
“Don’t take it from Sakura.” (Yuna)
I warned him and then taught Sakura how to handle the Bearphone, and I also mentioned to King Suou that the Bearphone was also a secret.
“So, Kagali-san. Is there a place on this island where this door would not be easily noticed? I’d like to place it temporarily.” (Yuna)
I asked, looking at the bear gate placed in the room.
“Then, how about going back to my house? The only people who would come in there would be my caretakers. With all the commotion, no one will come in for a while. Suou, just in case, tell them that they don’t need to take care of me for a while.” (Kagali)
“What? You’re staying on the island?” (King)
“If I go over there now, it might cause a scene.” (Kagali)
“Well then, Sakura will come back with me on the ship, but what about you?” (King)
King Suou confirms to Shinobu.
“You’ll send the first team to the island later, right? Then I have to stay, don’t I?” (Shinobu)
“That would be the case, but how about taking a break?” (King)
“Of course, I want to take a rest, but Kagari-sama is so cute and they’ll need a guide.” (Shinobu)
“I appreciate that you’re staying.” (King)
“Oh~, but please give me a long vacation when this is over. I need a vacation.” (Shinobu)
“I get it. Take a rest as long as you like.” (King)
“That’s a promise then.” (Shinobu)
Shinobu looked happy to get the promise of a vacation.
“I’ll be going. Yuna, thank you for your help. I don’t have any words except gratitude. As the king of the country, I can’t thank you enough. Really, thank you.” (King)
King Suou looked straight at me and thanked me.
“Thank you so much, Yuna-san. You’ll always be a beacon of hope. I am very happy to have met you.” (Sakura)
“Ku~u ~ n”
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear cried as if to ask Sakura, “What about us?”
Sakura hugged Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, as if she understood what Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear were trying to say.
“Of course, Hugging Bear-sama and Swaying Bear-sama, you are also beacons of hope for me. Thank you very much.” (Sakura)
“Ku~u ~ n”
King Suou and Sakura left the bear house. I waited through the window for the boat to leave the island.
“Well then, I’m going to put away the house.” (Yuna)
I took everyone outside and stored the bear house.
“I’m going to check on Orochi one more time before the ship arrives. Yuna, thank you so much. Thank you for saving Sakura-sama.” (Shinobu)
Shinobu bowed her head deeply.
I’m glad I was able to erase Sakura’s nightmare.
Maybe she can sleep peacefully without having nightmares today.
“Well then, we’re going back.” (Yuna)
“I’ll be waiting for you. Also, thank you, Fina.” (Shinou)
“No, I’m just glad Shinobu-san’s injuries were not too serious.” (Fina)
“Also, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, you have been a big help too.”
“Ku~u ~ n”
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear squealed happily.
Kagali-san rode on Swaying Bear, while Fina and I rode on Hugging Bear and we moved towards Kagali-san’s house.
“This is……” (Yuna)
“Why is my house destroyed?” (Kagali)
Kagali-san’s house was devastated.
Well, there was a great battle against Orochi on the island. Orochi breathed fire, created wind, spit out rocks, and spewed water. It wouldn’t be surprising if one of them hit Kagali-san’s house.
Kagali-san’s house has a tree stuck in it. This feels like a tree that was cut and blown away by the Wind Orochi.
I should say that it was lucky because it didn’t get burned in the flames.
“My house…” (Kagali)
Kagali-san got depressed.
Well, of course, anyone would be depressed if their house were destroyed.
“This… I have to ask Suou to rebuild my house.” (Kagali)
“Kagali-san, do you want to live here even though the Orochi is gone?” (Yuna)
Kagali-san looked surprised at my words.
“I’ve lived here for so long, so I didn’t think anything of it. Surely, there is no need for me to be here.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san said so while looking at her half-destroyed house.
How about living with Sakura?
“But with this, there is no place to put the bear gate. Is there any other place?” (Yuna)
“In this case, why don’t we just put the bear house? I’ve already told him not to let anyone come here.” (Kagali)
Hmmm…what to do?
People will be coming to the island soon, but will it be okay?
I was tired and wanted to go home anyway, so I decided to put up a bear house here.
“Well then, Kagali-san. We’re going home, so get off from Swaying Bear.” (Yuna)
I said to Kagali-san who’s on top of Swaying Bear.
“Wait a minute. Are you planning to leave me, a little girl, in a place like this?” (Kagali)
Kagali-san hugged Swaying Bear and would not come down.
She looked like a little girl, but inside she’s an adult who has lived for hundreds of years. I won’t be deceived.
“Why don’t you just call Shinobu and ask her to come and get you? Or better yet, you can get on a ship that will come to check on the Orochi. Then you could go to the castle or Sakura’s place.” (Yuna)
“How could I go to the castle looking like this? There are people who know me. I guess I’ll have to stay here at your house.” (Kagali)
“How did it come to that?” (Yuna)
“Are you abandoning me, someone who fought alongside you?” (Kagali)
“Then I can call Sakura for you.” (Yuna)
I took out my bearphone.
“She’s probably sleeping on the boat right now. Are you going to wake her up?” (Kagali)
Indeed, Sakura looked sleepy as she was taken by King Suou.
When I remembered the appearance of Sakura, it became difficult to contact her.
“And on the ship, she might not be able to use that magic tool. She can’t let anyone know, right?” (Kagali)
I’m being driven to the corner here.
“If a monster comes, I might die here.” (Kagali)
Certainly Kagali-san is helpless right now.
“Yuna-oneesan. I feel sorry for Kagali-chan.” (Fina)
Fina tugs at my bear costume.
“It’s a pity to leave such a small child in a place like this.” (Fina)
“Oh, Fina, was it? You’re so kind.” (Kagali)
Come to think of it, Fina didn’t know what Kagali-san really looked like. From Fina’s point of view, it may have looked like I was leaving a helpless child behind.
“Don’t be deceived, Fina, Kagali-san may look like a child right now, but she’s an adult.” (Yuna)
Fina looked at Kagali-san and tilted her head.
Well, if you think about it normally, no adult would look like a little child.
In terms of age, she’s very old.
But what about in this case?
If she’s been alive for 10,000 years, then a hundred years would be a child compared to her.
Although, some animals could become adults in a year.
When you think about it, it’s difficult to judge between adults and children.
Still, remembering those breasts, I am sure they do not belong to a child.
“I may have been an adult before, but now I’m a powerless child. I can only cry.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san mimics a crying motion.
I let out a sigh. I am tired, and I want to return to Crimonia and rest as soon as possible.
“Just for a while.” (Yuna)
I entered the bear house with Kagali-san and Fina, who were riding on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, and used the bear gate to return to Crimonia.
“Etto,Yuna-oneesan. Can I go home now?” (Fina)
“Yeah, thank you for today. You’re a big help.” (Yuna)
When I patted her head, she looked happy.
“Well then, Kagari-chan. See you again.” (Fina)
“Thanks for your help.” (Kagali)
Fina goes home.
“So, Yuna. I need a place to sleep. Actually, I’m tired and sleepy, too.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san looked sleepy on Swaying Bear’s back.
Kagali-san must have been tired.
Well, She fought the wyvern, she fought the Wind Orochi, and she even used her power to change into a great fox back then. It’s no wonder she’s tired.
I guidec Kagali-san to the guest room.
“Here we are, get off from Swaying Bear.” (Yuna)
I carried Kagali-san to the bed and put her down. At the same time, I immediately hear her snoring in her sleep.
It seems that she really was at her limit and not just being selfish.
Swaying Bear and I quietly left the room.
Then, when I returned to my room for the first time in a long time, I changed into a white bear costume, and when I embraced Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in their cub forms, I fell asleep.
Author’s Note 2:
Thank you very much.
This concludes the main part of the Land of Harmony arc.
The rest of the story will be about cleaning up after the Orochi, but it will be a slow story. (tentative).
Next time, I may be late in posting. Thank you very much for your understanding.
