Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 492
Bear-san, Goes To Bed
It’s a little short because of the bad break.
After leaving the hot spring, we returned to our room.
“Well then, I’ll lay out the futon.” (Shinobu)
“You have futons?” (Yuna)
I was thinking of taking them out of the bear box.
“They’ve cleared most of it, but there are some left on the assumption that if you like the mansion, Yuna, then you might stay there. And if you bring Ruimin, Fina, and Mumroot-san, who were there on the island with you, then Kagali-sama and Sakura-sama might come as well. That’s why we have enough futons for everyone here.” (Shinobu)
I’m glad they were that attentive. It’s a good thing I didn’t refuse. Otherwise, I would have betrayed King Suou’s feelings. I will gratefully accept his feelings.
By the way, there’s no futon personally used by the King here, right?
We all laid out the futons.
Although I’ve never been in one, sleeping together in a room with futons laid out on the floor was like a school trip.
“What about you Kagali-sama? Do you want to sleep alone in that room?” (Shinobu)
“No, I don’t mind being over here with you guys for at least today.” (Kagali)
“Are you lonely, by any chance?” (Shinobu)
Shinobu asks with a nasty smile. Maybe it’s payback for the bath?
“Well, unlike you, I have no concept of loneliness. But I haven’t seen Sakura in a long time, so I’m just going to be with her. If you want to sleep in that room, you can use it alone.” (Kagali)
“I’m refraining. I’m already lonely back at the hot spring.” (Shinobu)
I knew it. She was lonely.
When we finished laying out the futons, Shuri and Ruimin looked sleepy. Shuri was the youngest, and Ruimin was an elf living in the forest. The night does come early.
There’s a light magic stone in place of electricity, and we took a long bath after the sun had set and it was already late. It’s time to sleep now.
“Oneechan, take out Hugging Bear-chan.” (Shuri)
Shuri asked Fina while yawning a little.
Hugging Bear, who was next to me, tilted his head when I called his name. He looked at me as if to say, “I am here”.
“Wait a minute.” (Fina)
Fina understood what Shuri was saying, and when she picked up the item bag, she took something white out of the item bag.
“Hugging Bear-chan…” (Shuri)
What she took out was a Hugging Bear plushie.
Shuri hugged her Hugging Bear plushie and jumped straight onto the futon. Then, she fell asleep. She’s fast asleep. She fell asleep in an instant. It seemed she couldn’t stay awake any longer.
Fina put a quilt over Shuri to keep her from catching a cold.
“Stuffed animals, you brought them as well?” (Yuna)
“Yes. In case you are planning a sleepover. Shuri seemed to sleep better with this by her side.” (Fina)
After saying so, Fina took out a Swaying Bear plushie from her item bag and put it beside her pillow. It seems that she had brought her own Swaying Bear plushie as well.
They both seemed to be taking good care of it.
“Yuna-sama, what are those Hugging Bear-sama and Swaying Bear-sama that Shuri and Fina are holding?” (Sakura)
“They look just like Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.” (Ruimin)
Ruimin and Sakura’s sleepy eyes opened wide and they asked.
“A stuffed bear? Or should I say a bear plushie?” (Yuna)
Stuffed animals may not make sense to them. But it was properly conveyed by automatic translation, wasn’t it?
“Those are stuffed animals? They’re adorable.” (Sakura)
Sakura was looking at the Hugging Bear plushie that Shuri was holding. I have seen these eyes many times.
“You want one?” (Yuna)
“Etto, well, yes.” (Sakura)
Sakura replied, looking down in embarrassment.
Smiling, I took out a pair of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies from the bear box and presented it to Sakura.
“You’re giving it to me?” (Sakura)
“Yeah. But Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are a pair. Even if they are stuffed animals, it would be a pity if Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear got separated from each other.” (Yuna)
Sakura likes Hugging Bear. But the plushies were better together.
Sakura reached out and hugged Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies.
“So soft. They’re cute.” (Sakura)
“Take good care of them.” (Yuna)
“Yes, I will. I will cherish it for the rest of my life.” (Sakura)
She happily hugged them again. She’s glad that I gave them to her as a gift and made her happy.
Sakura was stroking the head of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies on her lap. Someone was looking at Sakura with envy.
“Yuna-san. That’s not fair. I want a Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan plushie too.” (Ruimin)
“Ruimin too? You also want plushies.” (Yuna)
“I can’t have plushies?” (Ruimin)
“That’s not the case.” (Yuna)
If the stuffed bears exist in that elf village, won’t they be enshrined?
“If so, I want it too.” (Ruimin)
I took out another set of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies from the bear box and handed them to Ruimin.
“Wa~a. Thank you. I will take good care of it.” (Ruimin)
Ruimin also happily embraced the stuffed bears.
“It looked just like Hugging Bear-sama and Swaying Bear-sama. Did Yuna-sama make them?” (Sakura)
“I had an acquaintance who made these.” (Yuna)
It was made by Sherry, an orphaned girl who was good at sewing.
“Both look good. I want it too.” (Shinobu)
“I won’t give it to Shinobu.” (Yuna)
“But why!?” (Shinobu)
“Somehow, I have a feeling that you’ll treat them as target practice for knives or kunai.” (Yuna)
“I won’t do that. Yuna, what do you take me for!?” (Shinobu)
“……Someone who smells fishy?” (Yuna)
“You.. you’re terrible!” (Shinobu)
She seemed shocked, but was it just my imagination that she also seemed smiling?
“Everyone is making a fuss about bears, bears, bears.” (Kagali)
While we were having fun with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies, Kagali-san’s cheeks were puffed out.
“The fox is prettier than the bear. And its ears and tail are longer and fluffier than the bear.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san put out her fox’s ears and tail that she had hidden until now.
“Ku~u ~ n”
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear turn their butts toward Kagali-san to compete.
“Fufu, I won’t lose to such small tails.” (Kagali)
Then, Kagali-san started to compete with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear. I think they’re all cute.
“Kagali-sama, foxes are cute, too. Let’s make a cute stuffed fox next time.” (Sakura)
“I think it’s a great idea.” (Shinobu)
“We need to find a good craftsman.” (Sakura)
I wonder if Sherry can make it?
But wasn’t it difficult without a sample?
“Wait, I don’t want you to make another me!” (Kagali)
Contrary to Kagali-san’s words, her tail was wagging.
Apparently, she was happy. She seemed to be a tsundere fox.
“And yet you’re trying to show off how pretty you are?” (Yuna)
“I wasn’t!” (Kagali)
What was this little girl saying?
“Because, like the way you dress. Your house. And now, you even made this stuffed Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.” (Kagali)
“I’m just wearing this because of the blessing of the bear. Aren’t you also blessed by the fox, Kagali-san?” (Yuna)
“Yes, but can you perhaps also turn into a bear?” (Kagali)
“No, I can’t.” (Yuna)
When I said so, Kagali-san looked disappointed.
Perhaps she thought we were in the same boat?
Who was Kagali-san in the first place?
Then the stuffed bear-holding members started to look sleepy, so I turned off the light in the room and went to bed. Once the light was turned off, everyone fell asleep without talking, perhaps because they were tired of playing or the hot spring bath felt good. In such a quiet room, I could only hear Shuri’s cute sleeping voice once in a while. I also fall asleep with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear cubs.
Finally, I was able to give Sakura a stuffed bear. Also, I would also like to give her the picture books, but the way the story is going, I think I will have to put it on hold this time.
