Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 508
Bear-san, Takes A Stroll In Euphalia
The room was larger and more spacious than those of an ordinary inn.
The beds were also larger, and two rooms in the room looked like they could accommodate two people each. The table and chairs in the room also looked expensive. In addition, there was a door to the room, and it looked like there was an adjoining room.
Noa began to explore the room to see if anythng unusual happened in the inn.
“Yuna-san, there’s a bath.” (Noa)
Noa opened the door to the room. Apparently, the door I thought was the next room was actually the bathroom.
There was also a private bath at the inn in the Land of Harmony, but only in the expensive room.
I sat on my bed, summoned Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in cub forms, and took a rest.
I don’t think there was any danger, but Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear were there as insurance. People were never more vulnerable than when they were resting. Besides, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear worked hard by running to the city of Euphalia.
I held Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear on either side of me, and as I was thanking them, Noa came to me.
“Ah, Yuna-san, that’s not fair!” (Noa)
After looking around the room, Noa sat beside me and took Swaying Bear in her arms. She then thanked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear in the same way I did.
“Yuna-san, we are going to explore the city tomorrow, right?” (Noa)
“Yeah, we have plenty of time to spare before the appointed time with Shia.” (Yuna)
Shia should already be in Euphalia, according to the schedule. But because it’s an academy, it seems that we can’t meet her right away. So we were supposed to meet in front of the school in Euphalia.
“Then, it’s a stroll around the city until we meet up with Oneesama. I’m looking forward to it.” (Noa)
“That’s right. You want to go to the lake?” (Yuna)
As Noa and I were talking about the schedule for tomorrow, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear looked up and cried “ku~u ~ n“. At the same time, there was a knock at the door.
“I brought you your meal.” (Lady)
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear hid and I opened the door. A woman with a meal on a cart comes through the door.
“Please eat while it’s still warm. When you have finished eating, please put it in front of the door, and we will collect it later.” (Lady)
After saying that, the woman went back.
“Looks delicious.” (Noa)
“Then, let’s eat while it’s warm.” (Yuna)
We ate, bathed, and lay in bed. Swaying Bear cub occupied Noa’s bed, and my bed was occupied by Hugging Bear cub, both curled up in a ball.
“Come to think of it. I fell asleep yesterday in the middle of listening to Yuna-san’s story.” (Noa)
Noa seemed to remember last night. She asked me to tell the rest of the story, so I decided to tell her the story of the elven village.
This time I was able to finish talking before she went to sleep.
The next morning, after eating, we get ready to leave.
Well then, what shall we do?
I’m worried now. I’m worried after a long time. Let me say it again, I’m worried.
“What’s wrong with Yuna-san? Aren’t you going out?” (Noa)
Noa saw that I was troubled and called out to me.
“Yeah, I’m going out, but……” (Yuna)
“It seemed like you were thinking about something.” (Noa)
“Yeah, well. We’re supposed to meet Shia in front of the school today, right?” (Yuna)
“Yes. Until then, we have time, so we’re going for a walk around the city, right?” (Noa)
“Yeah, that’s right. Actually, she asked me to wear a uniform when I met Shia at the mansion. She said it would be easier to get into the academy if I was a student there.” (Yuna)
Shia told me on my way home.
I was troubled at the time, but nodded my head, thinking that I could not enter Euphalia’s academy dressed as a bear.
I thought I could handle it because I had worn it at the school festival before, but I am hesitant when it comes to changing clothes other than the bear suit.
“So, were you bothered by it?” (Noa)
“Yuna-san looks cute looking like a bear, but I also think you will look good in a uniform too.” (Noa)
Noa wasn’t shy about her thoughts and spoke them out loud and clear.
“And this isn’t Crimonia or the royal capital, so a uniform might be better.” (Noa)
Indeed, the dressing situation was made clear to me yesterday while resting in the inn.
“If something happens, my father will help you in Crimonia and my mother would help you in the royal capital, but here, well…” (Noa)
Exactly as Noa said.
I don’t know anyone here as I do in Crimonia, the Royal Capital, the Elven Village, or the Land of Harmony.
If it were just me, I wouldn’t have to worry about it, but I have Noa with me this time. I don’t want to stand out and get Noa involved. The bear outfit was great for protection, but it also invited trouble.
After much deliberation, I decided to change into a school uniform. This time it was not only my problem.
And with my bear shoes and bear puppets, I can handle it as long as it’s not a surprise attack.
“Yuna-san, you look great. But your feet and hands are still bears.” (Noa)
Noa looked at my feet and my hands. I can’t take these ones off.
“The gloves are my item bag, you see.” (Yuna)
I also added “Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear can’t be summoned without them” internally.
“These shoes are also a kind of magical tool, so when push comes to shove, I can move fast, after all, I’m Noa’s bodyguard.” (Yuna)
“It’s not that dangerous in the city, so it’s okay.” (Noa)
“You’ll never know. Noa is so cute, so maybe a guy will suddenly approach you.” (Yuna)
“Even if you say that, I think they would approach Yuna-san instead of me.” (Noa)
I have never been approached by a man since I came to this world, even in my former world.
Well, in my former world, I was a shut-in who didn’t go to school much, and in this world, I was a bear, so it’s no wonder. Even if I take that out of the equation, I don’t think any man would approach me.
And if they do call, it’s only for a fight.
After changing into uniform, Noa and I go for a walk around town until it’s time to meet up with Shia.
I changed into a uniform, but my legs were so~ uncomfortable. It’s chilly around my thighs.
The bear costume regulated the temperature, so I didn’t mind the outside temperature, but now, I am mindful of the wind blowing on my arms and thighs.
“Can I go back to my regular clothes?” (Yuna)
“Denied. Yuna-san, we’re going.” (Noa)
Noa grabbed my hand and started walking.
“You don’t have to pull so hard, I’m going.” (Yuna)
I wonder. Why do I feel more embarrassed walking around in a school uniform than in a bear costume?
Uniforms should be more common. As expected, it’s embarrassing to wear clothes you’re not used to wearing.
There are scenes in mangas where sometimes a girl get embarrassed where they wear clothes they were not used to wearing, and that’s how I feel right now.
But it’s no use worrying about it forever, so I’ll change my perception.
“Then, where should we go?” (Yuna)
“I would like to go see the lake. Then I would like to walk around and see the city.” (Noa)
Cliff also told me to see it.
“But I also would like to see the stores and stuff.” (Noa)
“Then, let’s walk toward the lake first.” (Yuna)
We start walking toward the lake.
“It’s different from Crimonia.” (Noa)
“And there’s a lot of people.” (Yuna)
The road to the lake was wide, with horse-drawn carriages coming and going. Many of the buildings along the road were huge. The buildings along the big road in the royal capital were huge as well. Crimonia was also a big city, but the streets of Euphalia were more crowded.
“I think the reason there are so many people is because there are several towns and villages centered around Euphalia. I think it is because Euphalia is also a distribution channel.” (Noa)
“You know a lot about it, even though you’ve never been here before.” (Yuna)
“I’ve studied geography, so I know that much. But the current Crimonia wouldn’t lose to it. Thanks to the connection with the town of Mereera, more and more people are passing through. That has made things harder for my father, though.” (Noa)
“Sorry about that.” (Yuna)
“It’s not your fault, Yuna-san. Besides, my father said it calmed down now, so it’ll be fine. When many people come to a town, we would also lose that much money to accommodate them. We were grateful to Yuna-san, so you don’t owe us an apology.” (Noa)
Quite the lord’s daughter, even if she’s still very young.
“But he also said that as the population grows, the number of bad people also increases, and that’s a problem. But it’s my father, the lord’s job, to deal with that.” (Noa)
Noa looked dazzling.
Back when I was 10 years old. I only remember playing with game consoles and computers.
But, it may have been around the time when my grandfather started teaching me about stocks.
As we looked around the city, we peered at any shops that looked interesting.
Noa seems to be enjoying herself. I don’t get people’s attention either, but I’m still restless.
I don’t think they will suddenly attack me from behind, but it’s unsettling to have zero defense.
I thought about summoning Swaying Bear or Hugging Bear in cub form, but I decided against it because it would be too conspicuous. That would make it meaningless to change into a uniform.
“Yuna-san, it’s the lake. I can see the lake!” (Noa)
Noa started running.
I followed her as I walked.
“Yuna-san, it’s enormous.” (Noa)
As Noa said, the lake was vast.
And there was an island in the center of the lake, with a bridge connecting it, and a large building.
“That’s the Euphalia Academy.” (Noa)
I had heard from Shia that the academy was on an island in the center of the lake, but that seems to be it.
We have an appointment to meet up with Shia across the bridge, but there’s still time.
“Let’s walk around the lake, shall we?” (Yuna)
When Noa replied, she ran energetically.
Noa seemed to be enjoying it and I was glad I brought her.
Now, if only we could see Shia in action, it would be a great experience.
Shia has to do her best since I came here in a school uniform.
When I see Shia, I’m going to have a blast.
It has been a long time since I wore a uniform.
But my hands and feet are bears.
