Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 505
Bear-san, Asks Shia About The Exchange Meet.
In the swimsuit conversation with Lurina-san in episode 344, we changed the name from [Wallsour], the city with the lake, to the city of [Euphalia]. (TN: In my case, it’s [Yufalia] changing to [Euphalia].)
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause the readers.
“But if you had come next week, I wouldn’t be here, so I’m glad Yuna-san came today.” (Shia)
She said the same thing as Tilia while happily eating candy art and popcorn.
I just felt like going to the royal capital, and it happened that the school was closed. It’s dependent on my mood of the day. But what about next week?
“What’s happening next week?” (Yuna)
“I won’t be in the royal capital because I’m going to the city of Euphalia.” (Shia)
The city of Euphalia? It seems to be subtly familiar, or maybe not.
It’s stuck somewhere in my head.
“So, you’re heading for the city of Euphalia next week, Shia?” (Yuna)
“This time, a magical exchange meeting will be held within the school in the city of Euphalia. Something like showing the magical ability of the students of each other’s school? Well, to put it simply, the purpose is for students from both schools to show off their magical abilities and compete with each other. If we lose, we will try to win next year. If we win, then they will try to win next year. That’s the kind of social gathering that takes place. And I’m going to be a part of it.” (Shia)
“It’s amazing that the school chose you for it, Shia.” (Yuna)
“I’m one of a few” (Shia)
“But still, the school chose you. It’s impressive.” (Yuna)
“Maybe it’s partly due to my status as an aristocrat.” (Shia)
“That’s not the case. I know how much you were practicing. You’re outstanding.” (Sulirina)
Sulirina-san denied Shia’s words.
“And if Yuna-san had attended the academy, she would definitely have been chosen.” (Shia)
Unfortunately, I do not attend the academy.
“But still, Euphalia. Now where have I heard that?” (Yuna)
Somehow, it’s stuck in the corner of my head.
“Maybe from that time?” (Shia)
“That time?” (Yuna)
When was that time?
I tilted my head.
“Look, Yuna-san. We all once went to the beach in the town of Mereera, didn’t we?” (Shia)
I went to the town of Mereera with Fina, Noa, the children from the orphanage, and then Shia from the royal capital.
But what does that have anything to do with the city of Euphalia?
“Don’t you remember? When Yuna-san was inviting Lurina-san, you talked about swimsuits, and Lurina-san said she had a swimsuit because she had been to Euphalia.” (Shia)
I hit my bear puppet.
Yeah, I remember having that conversation. I was worried about what to do with Lurina-san’s swimsuit, and she said she had one because there was a city with a lake, and she bought it there.
The city Lurina-san told me about was Euphalia. So that’s why it sounded faintly familiar.
“Shia, you remembered it well.” (Yuna)
“It was because of Yuna-san’s bear golem ride, and I had a strong impression at that time, and for some reason, I clearly remember the conversation between Yuna-san and Lurina-san.” (Shia)
Shia replied with a chuckle.
Her memory was good.
“But I didn’t know there was such a social event. Sounds interesting.” (Yuna)
If this were a manga, it’d be a school battle. Or an athletic meet where each club competes with each other?
“I’m looking forward to going to the city of Euphalia, but the social event is not fun for me because I have to carry the feelings of everyone at the academy on my back. In that case, would you like to join us, Yuna-san?” (Shia)
“I’m not a student.” (Yuna)
“You can wear the uniform I gave you.” (Shia)
“The other students and teachers will get mad at me.” (Yuna)
“Yuna-san, if you display your ability, you’ll convince them.” (Shia)
Unfortunately, it wasn’t my ability. It was the power of the bear cheat. Without my bear equipment, I could not use magic.
“I respectfully decline.” (Yuna)
“It’s a shame. If Yuna-san comes, we would have won without a doubt.” (Shia)
“Shia, you should do your best there.” (Yuna)
Shia made a bitter smile at my words.
Does she really hate it that much?
“Shall I go cheer you on?” (Yuna)
“You’re cheering for us?” (Shia)
I don’t expect to find many students as good as Shinobu, but it’s an excellent opportunity to see what kind of magic power students of my age have.
Whether it’s the academy in the Royal Capital or the academy in the city of Euphalia, it’s not a bad idea to check it. I saw them use magic at the school festival, but it wasn’t at full strength, and it wasn’t a competition.
“That’s right. Shall I take Noa with me? That would motivate you, Shia, wouldn’t it? But first things first, am I even allowed to watch?” (Yuna)
It would be normal to refuse everyone except the relatives if it were a school athletic meet or something like that. It would be meaningless if Noa could see it, but I couldn’t. However, if it’s open to the general public as a school festival, I can watch it too.
“Students and relatives are fine.” (Shia)
“Well, I guess I’ll take Noa with me, then, won’t I?” (Yuna)
Lately, I’ve been taking only Fina around with me. I don’t get a chance to take Noa with me unless it’s a time like this.
“But isn’t it difficult to bring Noa, all the way from Crimonia?” (Shia)
“It’s not that hard. I have Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, and Noa, she may be a little selfish, but she’s a good kid.” (Yuna)
If I said no, she would listen, even though she puffed out her cheeks. She won’t throw a fit.
But when it comes to the bears, she’ll go crazy.
“Then, if Noa is coming, tell her not to forget her bathing suit.” (Shia)
“Can we swim there?” (Yuna)
“Yes, you should still be able to swim. Every year, after the exchange meeting, I hear they always go for a swim.” (Shia)
“Is this perhaps your first time there, Shia?” (Yuna)
“Yes, that’s why I’m nervous.” (Shia)
Well, I think only a few don’t get nervous at competitions.
Most people get nervous unless they are accustomed to being there.
“I feel sorry for Father, but would you like me to make a request to Mother?” (Shia)
“Hmm, this time it’s my suggestion, so I’m going to do it myself instead of asking her. Besides, if I owe Eleanora-san a favor, it might become troublesome later.” (Yuna)
“Ugh, I can’t deny that. Well then, I will write a letter to Father, will you give it to him?” (Shia)
“Cliff may be happier with Shia’s letter than Eleanora-san.” (Yuna)
“Is that so?” (Shia)
“Fathers love their cute daughters, you know?” (Yuna)
Mine was different, but fathers generally have a soft spot for their daughters.
“Even at the school festival, he was worried about some guy coming up to Noa. So, as long as you write sweet words, Shia, it’ll be fine.” (Yuna)
If Eleanora-san were the whip, Shia would be the candy.
“I understand. Then I will go to my room to write a letter, please wait for a moment. Sulirina, tell Yuna-san where Euphalia is.” (Shia)
Shia asked Sulirina-san to help me and left the room.
I also had Sulirina-san show me the location of the city of Euphalia.
“So it’s on the other side of Crimonia.” (Yuna)
The city of Euphalia is opposite from Crimonia, when viewed from the royal capital.
I don’t know how accurate this map is. The map looks like the distance from the royal capital to Crimonia is not so different.
“Yes, so it may take some time.” (Sulirina)
“I have Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear with me, so we’ll be fine.” (Yuna)
“Of course. Yuna-sama has been to the Royal Capital many times like this.” (Sulirina)
Well, in reality, it’s via the bear gate.
It would be easier if I could tell Noa about the bear gate. I think she will be pleased to get to ride Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear again.
After talking with Sulirina-san for a while, Shia comes back.
“Thank you for waiting, Yuna-san. Please give this to my father. I don’t know how much help it will be, though.” (Shia)
“If it doesn’t work, I’m sorry.” (Yuna)
“Please come and cheer for us then, even if it’s just you, Yuna-san. I will be happy just to have you come.” (Shia)
Maybe I’ll take Fina with me then?
But since I brought Fina around to the country of harmony, should I not take her for a while?
Then, I checked the schedule of the exchange meeting.
“I wish Yuna-san could come with us from the Royal Capital so I could have ridden Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan again, but that’s too bad.” (Shia)
“You have other students with you, don’t you? I’ll refrain from going with your group, because they may be surprised when they see Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear together.” (Yuna)
Shia offered the idea of meeting up in the Royal Capital and going with her, but I declined.
It’s bothersome and annoying if they make a commotion.
Besides, I would like to refrain from acting with people I don’t know, even if it’s with Shia. I can’t even use the bear house, which is exhausting.
Now then, I heard about the city of Euphalia and confirmed the meeting place.
“Well then, Yuna-san, I’ll look forward to seeing you with Noa when we arrive there.” (Shia)
“I’ll try my best to convince Cliff.” (Yuna)
Well, if Noa’s daily activities were good, I think Cliff would give permission.
Now let’s hope Shia’s letter will do the rest.
