Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 484
Bear-san, Gets A Mysterious Crystal
I completely forgot to put the rock bear away.
“There’s a little confusion because of that bear. It was rumored that there was a fox-sama on this island. But when they came to the island, they found a bear-shaped rock lying near the head of a giant snake. Some suggest that it was actually a bear god-sama residing on this island.” (King)
“What are you saying? I am a fox.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san glared at King Suou.
“That’s probably because you’ve kept people off the island for so many years that it became an island of mystery. That would explain why a first-time visitor to the island, seeing a stone statue of a bear, would mistakenly think so, wouldn’t it?” (King)
“I don’t want to stand out, but I also don’t want to be mistaken for a bear.” (Kagali)
“I’m sorry, I forgot to put it away. I’ll get it now.” (Yuna)
“It’s too late for that. If it were to disappear, that would cause a problem. So I’m thinking of making a fox statue instead.” (King)
“Would making it change anything now?” (Yuna)
“Better to have it than not. Kagali, can you make a fox statue?” (King)
“There is nothing I can’t make, but do I really have to make it?” (Kagali)
“At this rate, you will not be revered as a fox, but a bear and your existence will turn into a bear.” (King)
“I don’t like that.” (Kagali)
Eventually, a stone statue of a fox was made.
They don’t spread the rumors of the existence of a fox and bear God grandly, but they pretend that fox-sama and bear-sama are good friends.
I could tell a story about a fox and a bear fighting together. Wouldn’t it be interesting to make it into a picture book?
“So where do you want me to build it? At the Wind Orochi?” (Kagali)
“I would like to see it built in various places. First of all, let’s start with the front of this house. You used to live here after all.” (King)
We left the bear house to make a stone statue of a fox.
“Kagali-san, are your magical powers okay?” (Yuna)
“I’ve recovered that much. The only question is whether I can do it well.” (Kagali)
With that said, Kagali-san created a stone statue of a fox in the broken part of her house.
“This is…….” (King)
The fox statue that was made didn’t look like a real fox, but a deformed fox statue.
“I made it to match your bear.” (Kagali)
She made it look effortlessly, even though she should have only seen it once.
“As expected, the fox is cuter.” (Kagali)
“Ku~u ~ n”
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear cubs cried.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, who had been quiet until now, wanted to protest that much.
Of course, I’ll vote for the bears if it comes down to which one was cuter.
“With long ears and a long tail, it’s way better than a bear.” (Kagali)
“Ku~u ~ n”
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear argued once more.
Their small, round ears and small, round tails were much cuter.
“Both Sakura and Shinobu think the fox is cuter as well, right?” (Kagali)
Sakura and Shinobu’s eyes were also sparkling.
Sakura and Shinobu look troubled comparing Kagali-san’s fox to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
“Eto~, I think both are cute.” (Sakura)
“It’s a difficult question. There’s no way you can compare them.” (Shinobu)
Kagali-san, Swaying Bear, and Hugging Bear shouted in response.
“You traitors!” (Kagali)
“Ku~u ~ n!!”
“Even if you say that we can’t choose because both the fox and the bear are cute.” (Sakura)
“That’s right. Kagali-sama is also an adult, so please don’t argue with the bear cubs. Please act like a grown-up.” (Shinobu)
“I’m currently a child! Besides, they are also adults.” (Kagali)
The unanswerable struggle continues.
And for some reason, even though Kagali-san kept arguing with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, Kagali-san still rode on top of Swaying Bear and Sakura rode on top of Hugging Bear’s back when moving to another place.
“But I may have lost the rideable category.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san said regretfully as she lay on Swaying Bear’s back.
On the other hand, Swaying Bear cried “Kuu-n” as if he was proud of his victory.
I’m not sure if they get along or not.
You couldn’t generally ride on a fox in the first place, could you? I think I could ride on that great fox, though. I would love to take a walk in the sky if I could.
Stone statues of foxes were then built at the place where the Wind Serpent was defeated, and deformed stone statues of foxes were built at other places on the island. If there were stone statues of foxes in various places, it would become a fox island.
“So you’ve finished dismantling the Orochi.” (Yuna)
There were still battle scars and remnants of the Orochi’s presence, but there was no sign of Orochi itself.
“Yeah, we finished it. I don’t think it’ll revive anymore, but just in case.” (King)
“What kind of material can be used from the Orochi?” (Yuna)
“The skin would be the most useful. Because it is leather, it’s lighter than steel. Above all, it’s strong, so there are many ways to use it.” (King)
“What about the meat?” (Yuna)
“I don’t know. It may be poisonous. It’s still being investigated.” (King)
Certainly, they didn’t have any past experience with Orochi’s material. They’re going to look into other materials.
“I think that’s enough. I’m tired.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san languished on Swaying Bear’s back.
“I’m sorry, but there’s something I’d like you to see, Kagali, so even though you’re tired, I’ll ask you to stay with me a little longer.” (King)
“What do you want to show me?” (Kagali)
“I can’t explain it. It’ll be faster to see it.” (King)
With that said, King Suou began to walk.
We were brought to the place where Mumroot-san reinforced the seal on the body of the Orochi. The building was crumbling because of its revival.
“Over here.” (King)
King Suou moved a little to the back of the building. The ground has collapsed, leaving a large hole. King Suou went down into the hole.
“Sakura, just hold on tight to Hugging Bear, and you’ll be fine.” (Yuna)
We followed King Suou down the hole in the ground.
“Kagali, take a look at this. Do you know what this is?” (King)
King Suou pointed to a person’s head-sized rainbow-colored haze? Cloud? Smoke? Mini aurora? That was drifting in the air.
“What’s that?” (Yuna)
“I wonder what that is? But it’s beautiful.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san got down from Swaying Bear and approached that rainbow-colored cloud.
“Do you know what that is?” (King)
“Did you touch it?” (Kagali)
“I touched it a couple of times to make sure, but nothing happened.” (King)
Kagali-san also touched the rainbow-colored cloud, but nothing happened.
“I can’t feel anything. What kind of magic is this?” (Kagali)
“We haven’t confirmed it. I thought I would check with Kagali first, so I didn’t let anyone touch it.” (King)
“I see.” (Kagali)
Gathering magic power in her hand, Kagali-san created a small wind and released it towards the cloud. But the rainbow-colored clouds did not waver and remained drifting.
“I have no idea. It looks like a lump of magical power.” (Kagali)
It’s a really mysterious phenomenon.
“Can I touch it too?” (Yuna)
I asked out of curiosity.
“I don’t think it’s dangerous, but be careful.” (Kagali)
Even if it’s dangerous, I’ll be fine with my bear puppet.
I put my black bear puppet in the rainbow-colored cloud, and the rainbow-colored cloud began to glow. The rainbow-colored clouds seemed to converge and gather around the bear puppet. When the convergence was over, the rainbow-colored clouds disappeared, and the black bear puppet held a ball about the size of a baseball in its mouth.
“What? What did you do?” (Kagali)
“I didn’t do anything. I just put my hand in it.” (Yuna)
I didn’t really do anything. I just put my bear puppet in the rainbow-colored cloud. I didn’t use magic or anything.
I showed everyone the ball in the black bear puppet’s mouth.
“It’s beautiful.” (Sakura)
“A crystal? Let me borrow it.” (Kagali)
As Kagali-san held out her hand, I passed it to her as if I were placing it in her tiny hand’s palm. The crystal ball left the bear puppet and fell on the palm of Kagali-san’s hand. The ball, which I thought would be placed in the palm of Kagali-san’s hand, fell to the ground without being placed in the palm of Kagali-san’s hand.
Kagali-san and I froze.
I thought it looked like it had just slipped through Kagali-san’s hand. And it seemed to be the same for Kagali-san, who looked curiously at her hand and the crystal ball that fell to the ground.
Kagali-san crouched down, reached for the fallen crystal ball, and tried to grab it, but she couldn’t. Her hand just passed through the crystal ball.
“What the hell is this? I can’t grab it.” (Kagali)
Since it might be dangerous, King Suou and Sakura were not allowed to touch it, so they had Shinobu touch it, but just like Kagali-san, her hand just passed through and couldn’t touch the crystal ball.
But when I touched it, I could grab it.
“Why is it that only you can touch it?” (Kagali)
The only thing I could think of was my bear puppet.
I was curious about this crystal ball, so I used the bear observation eye.
The use is unknown.’
……Bear Trail it said. This was definitely an item that was exclusively for me.
“What’s the matter, Missy?” (Kagali)
“No, nothing. Can I have this?” (Yuna)
“Do you know what it is?” (King)
“I don’t know, but I think I’ll need it.” (Yuna)
It’s even called “Bear Trail”.
“If that’s the case, go ahead and take it.” (King)
“You sure?” (Yuna)
“Given that you’re the only one who can touch it, even if others wanted it, they would not be able to. If you want it, then you could take it.” (King)
“Well, yes, I suppose. Whatever the reason, if only you can have it, then what’s the point?” (Kagali)
“Why don’t you just put it in a bag and carry it?” (Shinobu)
Shinobu took out a drawstring bag, loosened the string, and opened the entrance. I put the Bear Trail in the drawstring bag.
The Bear Trail went through the drawstring bag and fell to the ground.
Shinobu looked at the drawstring bag curiously.
“Now you know that only Yuna can have it. Whatever it is, if only Yuna can have it, then that ball must be related to Yuna.” (King)
I picked up the Bear Trail, then put it in my bear box.
But what is the bear trail?
It’s called a bear trail, so does that mean it will lead me somewhere?
I’d like to say no to the hassle, but that’s not possible it seems.
But wasn’t this the area where the tail of the Orochi was located?
If it was the tail of Yamata-no-Orochi, I would have found a sword. I would rather have a sword than this incomprehensible thing.
Stone statues of bears and foxes littered the island.
And what she got by defeating the Orochi was the “Bear Trail”.
