Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 504
Bear-san, Goes To See Shia
His Majesty the King, the Queen, and Tilia did not hesitate to reach for the second candy art.
It’s fine, though, since there was still some left, but too much sugar wasn’t good, so I put away the candies’ heavy box.
His Majesty the King was disappointed, but he had to be careful with his sweets as an adult.
I watched Princess Flora finish her candy first, and then I took out the picture book from the bear box.
“It’s a new picture book.” (Yuna)
When I gave her the picture book, Princess Flora gladly received it.
“Thank you, Bear-san.” (Flora)
Princess Flora put on a big smile and started reading the picture book.
“A new picture book?” (Tilia)
Tilia got up from her chair and moved over to Princess Flora.
“Flora, let me read it for a little bit.” (Tilia)
Tilia tried to reach for the picture book.
However, Princess Flora stretched her body and tried to protect the picture book.
“Don’t take it!” (Flora)
“Just a little.” (Tilia)
“Then let’s have a look at it together, that’ll do, right?” (Tilia)
Princess Flora alternately looked between the picture book and Tilia when Tilia asked.
“Yeah, okay.” (Flora)
Tilia stroked Princess Flora’s head and carried a chair next to Princess Flora to sit down.
These sisters get along well.
“Anju-san, please have Eleanora-san copy it later.” (Yuna)
“Understood, I’ll let her know later.” (Anju)
Anju-san, who was making a new batch of tea, looked happy at my words. Anju-san also wanted a copy of the picture book.
“By the way, where’s Eleanora-san?” (Yuna)
Usually, she barges together with His Majesty the King. But today, she didn’t come.
“She’s working. She’s supposed to be out today.” (King)
She’s working. Now that’s rare. Maybe today it will rain pigs.
(Editor’s note: basically something unbelievably impossible [for the circumstances] happened)
But if she’s not coming, should I prepare a candy art for Eleanora-san? I don’t want her to complain later.
After eating his candy, His Majesty the King returned to his work, and the Queen had some business to attend to, so she also left the room.
Ange took the candy art and went to Zeref-san’s place.
At the request of Princess Flora and Tilia, I summoned the normal-sized Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
The sisters hugged the bears.
“Soft. Happiness.” (Tilia)
Tilia buried her face in Swaying Bear’s belly.
Mimicking her, Princess Flora also hugged Hugging Bear’s belly.
It’s nice to have a big room where I can summon Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
“I want to take a walk in the castle on Swaying Bear.” (Tilia)
“You can’t do that. It would cause a scene.” (Yuna)
I rejected Tilia’s monologue.
“U~u, I certainly wouldn’t want the knights to attack Swaying Bear when they see him.” (Tilia)
“Are they going to attack Bear-san?” (Flora)
“I’m just saying that it might happen when you take them for a walk out of the room.” (Tilia)
“Bear-san, don’t go outside.” (Flora)
When Princess Flora heard Tilia’s words, she hugged Hugging Bear and didn’t let him go outside.
Hugging Bear cried ‘ku~u ~ n‘ and gently placed his paw on Princess Flora’s head, which was hugging his stomach.
“It’s amazing to see a bear so friendly, but a bear that can understand language is even more unbelievable. Swaying Bear, will you let me on your back?” (Tilia)
When Tilia asked, Swaying Bear sat down, making it easier for her to ride on it back.
“Thank you.” (Tilia)
Tilia thanked him and got on Swaying Bear’s back.
“Oneechan, that’s not fair. I want to ride too.” (Flora)
Hearing Princess Flora’s words, Hugging Bear sat down. Princess Flora tried to get on, but it was still too high for her to ride even when Hugging Bear was sitting down.
I grabbed Princess Flora’s waist, lifted her up, and put her on Hugging Bear’s back.
“Thank you, Bear-san.” (Flora)
Then they rode around the room on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
I have no particular plans today, so I spent the day relaxing with Princess Flora and Tilia. After a while, Princess Flora, tired of playing, fell asleep comfortably on the top of Hugging Bear.
Anju-san, who came back, gently lifted Princess Flora and put her on the bed.
She’s talking in her sleep. By “Bear-san,” does she mean me? Or does she mean Hugging Bear, who was with her just a while ago?
Princess Flora, who was laid on the bed, unconsciously hugged the cuddly plushie placed next to her by Anju-san.
Her face looked happy.
“Well then, I’ll get going.” (Yuna)
“Thank you, Yuna, come again when I’m here.” (Tilia)
“Well, when the timing is right. Tell Princess Flora I’ll come back again.” (Yuna)
“If Yuna, Swaying Bear, and Hugging Bear weren’t there when she woke up, she’d probably cry.” (Tilia)
“It’s all right. The plushies should suffice.” (Yuna)
I parted from Tilia and left the castle.
There’s still time. If the school was still closed, there’s a possibility that Shia was at home if she hadn’t gone out. I have some candy arts left, so I decided to go see her.
If she’s not there, I’ll just give them to the maid, Sulirina-san. Besides, if I give Eleanora-san’s share, she won’t complain about it later.
When I arrive at Eleanora-san’s mansion, I am greeted by her maid, Sulirina-san.
“Is Shia here?” (Yuna)
“Yes, she’s at the flowerbed right now.” (Sulirina)
Guided by Sulirina-san, I went to the garden.
“Yuna-san, you’re here.” (Shia)
Shia, who noticed me, turned around happily.
Her face was covered with dirt.
“What were you doing?” (Yuna)
“I was cleaning the flowerbed.” (Shia)
“I was going to do it on my own, but Shia-sama offered to help me.” (Sulirina)
“I was helping out because the school was closed.” (Shia)
The girls handled weeds neatly and beautiful flowers were in bloom on the flowerbed.
“Is this the flower bed we made before?” (Yuna)
When I came for the King’s birthday celebration, I helped Sulirina-san make a flower bed. The flowers were blooming in the flowerbed from that time.
“Yes, thanks to you, Yuna-san, we have beautiful flowers.” (Sulirina)
Sulirina-san looked happy.
“It’s because Sulirina-san worked so hard raising them.” (Yuna)
“She was taking good care of them every day after all.” (Shia)
Sulirina-san looked a little shy with Shia’s words.
“Now then, let us go into the house so I can prepare the tea. But before you go to your room, Shia-sama, please wash your face.” (Sulirina)
Shia ran her hand over her cheek, and a thin layer of dirt across it.
Seeing this, Sulirina-san and I both smile.
“Uh, I’m tired.” (Shia)
Shia, having washed her face, leaned back in her chair.
“Thank you very much, Shia-sama. Thanks to you, we finished early.” (Sulirina)
Sulirina-san brought me a cup of tea. I thanked her and accepted it.
“Tea tastes good after work, doesn’t it? So, what’s up, Yuna? Do you have some errands to run? Of course, even if you don’t have one, you are always welcome to come by.” (Shia)
A similar line was once said to me by Noa. They were sisters, after all.
“Why are you laughing?” (Shia)
“I’m sorry, Shia, Noa said the same thing to me. I brought souvenirs today. Earlier, I went to the castle, but I didn’t see Eleanora-san, so I thought I’d give her share to you too.” (Yuna)
I took out the heavy box containing the candy arts from the bear box.
“What’s this?” (Shia)
“You look tired, and these are just the right snacks.” (Yuna)
When you’re tired, it’s sweets.
I opened the heavy box. There were fewer of them, but there were still some.
Shia reacted the same way as those who had seen the candy art.
“They’re sweet and tasty. They taste the same, so pick which one you like.” (Yuna)
Shia looked curiously at the candy arts and held up a rabbit-shaped candy art.
Ït’s beautiful, but it’s such a waste to eat it.” (Shia)
“Sulirina-san, you too.” (Yuna)
I invited Sulirina-san to join.
“I will gladly take your word for it then.” (Sulirina)
Sulirina-san also sat in a chair, had the same look as Noa, and held a red flower candy bar.
Then Shia and Sulirina-san put the candy bar in their mouths.
“Yes, it’s sweet and delicious.” (Sulirina)
“Yuna-san, you like sweets too, don’t you?” (Shia)
What can I say, I love sweets.
“Because you taught me cotton candy at the school festival, also the pudding and cake you make are both sweet treats.” (Shia)
That being said, I made many sweets.
But I also made potato chips and popcorn.
I’ll serve her popcorn to make my point.
“What is this?” (Shia)
“Popcorn, it’s a snack. It’s not sweet.” (Yuna)
“Etto, do I just grab it with my hands and eat it?” (Shia)
That’s right. Shia was a noblewoman. Basically, no eating by hand.
“Yeah, it’s something you grab and eat with your hands, but it may be a little sticky afterward?” (Yuna)
“Shia-sama, may I get you a spoon?” (Sulirina)
“I will eat it as it is.” (Shia)
Shia reached out for popcorn, grabbed a few, and put it in her mouth.
“It’s salty. It’s soft. Yuna-san, did you make this too?” (Shia)
“The candy art you just saw was sold in a store somewhere quite far away, but I made this one.” (Yuna)
“There are so many foods from far away that I don’t know about.” (Shia)
Shia looked alternately between popcorn and candy art.
Apparently, she liked both of them.
