Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 506
Bear-san, Goes To See Noa
The day after returning from the royal capital, I went to see Noa.
“What’s up, Yuna-san? Did you come to visit me? Do you want to go outside? It would be nice to go out on Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.” (Noa)
Noa looks happy that I came.
“Are you okay with your studies and all?” (Yuna)
“I’m doing it properly, so it’s okay.” (Noa)
“That’s great. I have a present, or rather, an invitation for you, Noa, for being good. A few days from now, there will be an exchange meet to compete for magic between the royal capital’s school and the city of Euphalia’s school. It seems that Shia will participate in it. So do you want to come and watch it with me, Noa?” (Yuna)
“I’ll go! I want to go.” (Noa)
Noa responded loudly, not even bothering to ask for more details.
“Then all we have to do now is get Cliff’s permission.” (Yuna)
“I’ll also ask my father.” (Noa)
Noa immediately tried to get to Cliff.
“Is he working? Is it okay?” (Yuna)
“It’s fine.” (Noa)
“Then, should I go with you?” (Yuna)
“Yuna-san, you also want to come with me and ask him together?” (Noa)
“Because I’m the one who invited you.” (Yuna)
I told Shia that I would bring Noa with me. Besides, Shia had also written a letter for Cliff, and it would be easier for the conversation to move forward if I went with Noa.
Noa and I went to the office where Cliff was.
Noa knocked on the door, asked permission to enter, and entered the room.
“Yuna, why are you here?” (Cliff)
When he saw my face, he looked anxious.
Why would that be, I wonder?
“Because we have something to ask.” (Yuna)
“Father, may I go with Yuna-san to support Oneesama?” (Noa)
“Supporting Shia?” (Cliff)
Cliff looked as if he had no idea why.
I told Cliff about the magical exchange meeting.
“Oh, that.” (Cliff)
“Father, I want to go and watch. I want to go to support Oneesama.” (Noa)
“For now, I have a letter of request from Shia.” (Yuna)
“From Shia? Not from Eleanora?” (Cliff)
“This time, it’s a request from Shia and me.” (Yuna)
I give Cliff the letter that Shia entrusted to me. Cliff accepted the letter and looked it over.
His eyes become kinder as he reads the letter. As expected, he’s happy to receive a letter from his daughter.
“I get it. Okay.” (Cliff)
“Are you sure?” (Yuna)
“Shia will be more motivated if Noa is there.” (Cliff)
“Thank you, Father!” (Noa)
Noa has a big smile on her face.
“The road to the city of Euphalia is not an easy one to take. It would be good if you take Noa with you to Euphalia.” (Cliff)
Euphoria is located in the opposite direction of Crimonia from the royal capital. If you live in the Royal Capital, you can go there directly, but from Crimonia, it may take longer even by horse-drawn carriage or other means.
“Is the city of Euphalia, a city of lakes?” (Yuna)
“You know about it?” (Cliff)
“A little bit. Also, Shia told me to remind Noa not to forget her bathing suit.” (Yuna)
“It’s good to play, but don’t forget to see the city.” (Cliff)
“And don’t forget to support Shia.” (Cliff)
“Of course!” (Yuna)
With Cliff’s permission, we return to Noa’s room and set a date for our departure.
“Would you like to meet up with Eleanora-san in the royal capital?” (Yuna)
That would change the date of departure.
“My mother?” (Noa)
“If we leave early, I think we can make time to meet her.” (Yuna)
“Then, why don’t we go see her on our way home? If so, we can meet her without worrying about time; we can even talk to Oneesama about the exchange meet.” (Noa)
“I guess so. Then, we’ll head directly to the city of Euphalia without going at the royal capital on the way there, and we’ll stop by the royal capital on the way back.” (Yuna)
It takes time just to get into the royal capitalm, as well as departing from it. If we stay in the Bear House, we can save a lot of time.
“But is it okay to depart so late?” (Noa)
“If it’s Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, then it’s okay.” (Yuna)
I said to Noa like how we did when we went to the royal capital last time.
And since it’s just Noa and me this time, we can move faster than that time.
“I can go leisurely with Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.” (Noa)
“That’s fine and all, but shortening travel time is a fundamental part of any trip.” (Yuna)
Honestly, I would have liked to go to the royal capital through the bear gate. But since I am with Noa, who knows nothing about the bear gate, we’re going to ride on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear once again.
Incidentally, this time, since it’s about Noa and Shia, I would like to tell them that I am not taking Fina with me. I thought it would be a waste of time and energy to bother them both.
When I said that to Noa.
“You don’t have to worry about it.” (Noa)
“But I took Fina with me the last time I went souvenir shopping.” (Yuna)
I explained, and she puffed out her cheeks.
“That’s not fair! Then, this time, I’m monopolizing Yuna-san, Swaying Bear-chan, and Hugging Bear-chan.” (Noa)
She said that. But you know, I’m not owned by anyone.
A few days later, Noa and I rode together on Swaying Bear, and departed for Euphalia.
Euphalia’s road was no different from the road to the royal capital.
“Yuna-san, wasn’t Swaying Bear-chan fast today?” (Noa)
Swaying Bear was running faster than usual.
“Swaying Bear was wearing something you call a power-up item. He wears it so he can run long distances faster.” (Yuna)
The effects of Bearmonite have increased endurance, speed, and attack power, among other things. Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear have become more powerful.
“Such items exist?” (Noa)
“But I don’t want to make him run all the way, so I’ll switch him with Hugging Bear en route.” (Yuna)
If we switch bears, we can shorten our breaks. That’s why Noa and I ride Swaying Bear together instead of separately.
And, even though Swaying Bear showed no signs of fatigue, he changed places with Hugging Bear midway. If I didn’t switch them, Hugging Bear, who was inside the bear puppet, would sulk.
I asked Swaying Bear to rest inside the bear puppet.
Then, we continued our travel after switching bears and arrived at the royal capital before evening.
“I can’t believe it. One day? We got to the royal capital in just half a day.” (Noa)
“We had to keep going because if we go into the Royal Capital, It’ll take up a lot of time.” (Yuna)
If we stay at Eleanora-san’s place or my house in the Royal Capital, it will take a lot of time. Besides, Noa said that it would be acceptable to see Eleanora-san on the way back, so we will continue to pass through the Royal Capital.
Since it was almost evening, there were no people outside the Royal Capital, and Hugging Bear ran as it was.
Then, a short distance from Royal Capital, I set up a bear house away from the city roads and stayed there overnight.
At this pace, we should be able to arrive tomorrow.
“I now understand why Yuna-san can get to the Royal Capital so easily. I can’t believe we left Crimonia in the morning and arrived in the Royal Capital before evening.” (Noa)
Well, the difference in movement speed between a carriage and Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear was immense. Moreover, they were powered up by Bearmonites.
After taking a bath and eating, we moved to our room.
“We’re leaving early tomorrow, so let’s get to bed early.” (Yuna)
“I want to sleep with you, Yuna-san.” (Noa)
“With me?” (Yuna)
“Yes, I want to hear Yuna-san’s story.” (Noa)
I thought she just wanted to sleep with Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, but I guess not.
I took Noa and went into the room.
Swaying Bear and Hugging also slept together with us because my bed was big enough.
“Fufu, Swaying Bear-chan, and Hugging Bear-chan are so cute.” (Noa)
Noa collapsed on the bed, holding Swaying Bear, who had turned into a bear cub. Hugging Bear came to my side, and I held him in my arms.
“So what do you want to hear?” (Yuna)
“Yuna-san, you’ve been to a lot of places, right?” (Noa)
“Well, Yeah.” (Yuna)
I’ve also been to places I can’t talk to Noa about.
“I’d love to hear your story.” (Noa)
Hmmm, which story would it be?
I think about it for a moment and decide to tell him about my visit to the elven village.
I met Ruimin, and her sister Sanya-san, the guild master in the royal capital. We went to the elven village together, following Sanya-san, who had decided to return to the elf village because the barrier around the elf village had weakened. I also remembered a big tree in the elf village called the Sacred Tree. I told her that the tea Cliff drank was made from the leaves of the sacred tree.
At first, Noa seemed to enjoy listening to the story, but by the time I finished, she was holding Swaying Bear and snoozing.
I covered Noa with a blanket so she wouldn’t catch a cold.
“Good night.” (Yuna)
I said in a small voice and went to sleep.
That’s how Noa and I decided to go together.
