Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 575
Bear-san, Gives Fina’s Present, Royal Capital Edition Part 4
After leaving Ghazal-san’s blacksmithing store, we filled our bellies at a food stall and saw many students in school uniforms walking around.
“Shia might be home by now, so why don’t we go to Shia’s house?” (Yuna)
As we were walking toward Shia’s house, we heard voices saying, “There she is!”, “She is here!”.
I thought the voice sounded familiar, and then two girls in school uniforms came up to us.
“Cattleya, Shia?” (Yuna)
“I knew it was Yuna-san.” (Cattleya)
They looked at me happily while slightly out of breath.
“Why are you two here?” (Shia)
“That’s my line.” (Yuna)
“We were hungry.” (Cattleya)
In other words, it is time for a shopping and eating spree.
“Please don’t inform my mother about this.” (Shia)
I was tempted to ask whether it was okay for an aristocratic young lady to buy food at food stalls, but she seemed to know it was wrong, so I decided to let it slide.
According to the story, Shia and Cattleya, who had come to fill their bellies at the stall, heard the word “bear” around them. When they listened carefully, they overheard a girl dressed as a bear walking with little girls.
“That’s why I figured Yuna-san is here, so I was looking for you. But I thought the little girls with you were Noa and Fina-chan, but it turned out to be Shuri-chan.” (Shia)
“Hey, it’s me.” (Shuri)
“Can Noa go out? Even for a bit?” (Shia)
She’s been going out too much lately. She may not be able to go out for quite a while.
“Fina, you know Cattleya, right? And, Shuri, is this your first time seeing her?” (Yuna)
“Yes, we have met a few times.” (Fina)
“I met Fina-chan at the school festival and the blacksmith’s shop.” (Cattleya)
“I met her at the school festival.” (Shia)
Shuri met her at the school festival, too. And she remembers it well. Shuri’s memory is also quite good.
“However, we only greeted each other lightly that time. Once again, I am Cattleya, Shia’s friend. It’s nice to meet you both.”
When Cattleya mentioned her name, Fina and Shuri imitated her manner and introduced their names.
So, Yuna-san, why are you in the capital with Fina-chan and Shuri-chan?”
I explained what had happened.
“So it’s Fina-chan’s birthday present, and you’re going out with Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan? I’m envious.” (Shia)
“Fina would be hesitant to accept it if I gave her something expensive as a present. I’m indebted to Fina, so I would buy her anything.” (Yuna)
“Uu, I’m the one who’s indebted to you.” (Fina)
The person herself doesn’t know how much I appreciate her instead.
“Yuna-san, what are you going to do now?” (Cattleya)
“We were on our way to Shia’s house.” (Yuna)
“Is that so?” (Shia)
“I was just thinking of going there when school ended. But if you two have other things to do, I’ll come later.” (Yuna)
Shia looked at Cattleya as if confirming my words.
“Yuna-san, Shia. Can I come with you too? I want to meet Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan for the first time in a long time.” (Cattleya)
Of course, I granted Cattleya’s request. And we started walking toward Shia’s house.
“Fina-chan, Shuri-chan, I heard you guys attended Noa’s birthday party. Thank you.” (Shia)
“We’re wearing a beautiful dress.” (Shuri)
Shuri talked happily while spinning around.
“The dress was a dress Noa lent her from when she was little.” (Yuna)
Noa tried to give the dress to Shuri, but Tirumina-san politely refused.
Well, it’s not easy to receive a dress from someone like her, even if she doesn’t wear it anymore.
Fina and I were forced into it in a threatening way, though.
“I would have loved to see Fina-chan and Shuri-chan in their dresses.” (Shia)
“Yuna-oneechan’s dress was also beautiful.” (Shuri)
“Eh, Yuna-san, you wore a dress!?” (Cattleya)
Shia and Cattleya made surprised expressions.
“Noa gave me the dress at Misa’s birthday party.” (Yuna)
Without it, I don’t think I would have worn any dress.
“Ah, I should have taken a break from the academy and gone back to Crimonia.” (Shia)
It’s not worth taking a break from school to see me in my dress.
But for some reason, even Cattleya was agreeing.
“So, you gave Noa a birthday present of a large Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan stuffed animals, right?” (Shia)
“You know about that?” (Yuna)
“It was written in Noa’s letter. It said that she made it with Yuna-san, Fina-chan, Shuri-chan, and a girl named Sherry-chan and that she had fun making it together. I wish I could have seen it.” (Shia)
“I’ll have to ask Noa to show me next time I come to Crimonia.” (Cattleya)
I don’t have it, so I can’t show it.
As we were talking about Noa’s birthday party, we arrived at Shia’s house.
I greeted the maid, Sulirina-san, and came to the guest room.
At Cattleya’s request, I summoned the regular-sized Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
“Tomorrow, I can brag to Marcus and the others.” (Cattleya)
Cattleya is embracing Hugging Bear, and Shia is hugging Swaying Bear.
“It’s fluffy.” (Shia)
“I envy Fina-chan and Shuri-chan for being able to go out with Swaying Bear-chan and Hugging Bear-chan.” (Cattleya)
“I’ll touch it, too.” (Shuri)
Seeing the two of them clinging on to Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, Shuri can no longer hold back and goes next to Shia and together they hug Swaying Bear. Fina seems to be holding back, though, like the big sister she is.
“I wish I had a bear as cute as this one.” (Cattleya)
Cattleya gently caresses Hugging Bear’s back.
I won’t give him to her, and I don’t want her to start keeping a real bear.
“I can’t give you a real one, but I can give you a stuffed animal if you want.” (Yuna)
I took out Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear plushies from the bear box and put them on the table.
“Do you think it’s childish, Cattleya?” (Yuna)
Cattleya moved away from Hugging Bear and grabbed the stuffed animals on the table.
“No way. Can I have these stuffed animals?” (Cattleya)
“As long as you take good care of them.” (Yuna)
“Of course, I will take good care of them. Thank you.” (Cattleya)
When Cattleya got the stuffed animals, she compared them to Hugging Bear sitting on the floor.
“It looks the same as him.” (Cattleya)
“Because the child who made it worked hard.” (Yuna)
They are really well made. I think Sherry could make it as a craftsman.
“Cattleya’s been wanting one for a while now.” (Shia)
“Is that so?” (Yuna)
“She saw Tilia-sama holding one at the school festival before, and later, she saw the stuffed animal in my room. She was envious of it.” (Shia)
Come to think of it; I also gave a pair to Shia before.
I think it was when I had a match with Marcus and Shia, was it?
“Shia, you didn’t need to say that.” (Cattleya)
Cattleya looked a little embarrassed.
But if she wants it, then I’m happy.
After enjoying Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear and receiving her plushies, Cattleya left with a satisfied look.
And after Cattleya left, Eleanora-san came back with a tired look on her face.
“Yuna-chan, you’re here. Welcome.” (Eleanora)
“Sorry for disturbing you.” (Yuna)
“But it’s rare to see Fina-chan and Shuri-chan together with you. Do you have any business in the royal capital?” (Eleanora)
“It’s Fina’s birthday present. A tour of the royal capital.” (Yuna)
I told Eleanora-san what I had explained to Shia.
“Oh right, it was also written in the letter from Noa. Happy birthday, Fina-chan.” (Eleanora)
“Th, thank you.” (Fina)
“Then I’ll have to get something for you, Fina.” (Eleanora)
“No, please, I’m good.” (Fina)
Fina shook her head while refusing.
“But you made big stuffed animals for Noa, didn’t you?” (Eleanora)
“I didn’t do it alone. I also worked together with Yuna-oneesan, Shuri, and a girl named Sherry to make it.” (Fina)
“Fufu, but Fina-chan, I’d like to give you a gift to thank you for all the help you’ve always given us. I guess so. Do you want to take some of the treasures that are in storage? Maybe there’s something in there that you would like, Fina-chan.” (Eleanora)
I was personally interested in the things sleeping in the warehouses of a noble, but Fina politely declined. Eleanora looked disappointed, but with Fina’s personality, she wouldn’t accept it.
“Then at least have dinner with me.” (Eleanora)
“Sorry, we have other companions so we have to leave now. We just came to say hello to Shia and Eleanora-san since we’re in the capital today.” (Yuna)
I refused her on Fina’s behalf.
Mumroot-san and Ruimin are waiting for me at the bear house. And so, we have no time to have dinner.
“Ara, there are others. We can’t have them with us, can we?” (Eleanora)
Since Sanya-san and Eleanora-san know each other, I don’t see any problem with letting her meet Mumroot-san and Ruimin, but it’s not a good idea to decide on my own, so I politely decline this time.
“Then it can’t be helped.” (Eleanora)
Eleanora-san honestly gave up.
And before we leave, I asked Eleanora-san.
“Eleanora-san, I have one question. Can I visit the upper part of the castle?” (Yuna)
“The upper part?” (Eleanora)
“Fina? No, Shuri wants to see the city from the top of the castle.” (Yuna)
It was Shuri’s request, but I heard Fina say in a low voice, “I wonder what the scenery looks like from up there?”
Maybe Fina would also like to take a look.
I think it would be a good present for Fina. Moreover, I would like to see it too.
“Yes, it is. Normally, it’s off-limits. Only a select few are allowed in.” (Eleanora)
Well, that’s usually the case.
“Well, the top floor is off limits, but the middle floor would be fine. The view from that place is beautiful as well. I’ll take you there as a birthday present.” (Eleanora)
“Are you sure?” (Yuna)
“Since Fina didn’t accept my gift, at least I can give her this.” (Eleanora)
“You guys have it good.” (Shia)
Shia, who was listening to the story, looked envious.
“I’m sure you’ve been there before, Shia.” (Yuna)
“I have, but I rarely get there.” (Shia)
Shia was disappointed since she can’t go with us because she has school tomorrow. Eleanora-san also doesn’t want to give her a day off from school. Skipping school is not good.
Sorry for the delay.
I apologize for the delay. I will be taking a break for a while.
Although there’s no official announcement yet, volume 14 will be released in December. (I have received permission from the publisher.)
Since December is the end of the year and the New Year’s holiday, we have an early deadline, and there are some parts I would like to revise, so I would like to take some time off for the book.
I expect the period to be about two weeks. (If it takes longer, we will report back to you.)
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our readers.
※ As always, thanks to everyone who has reported typos. I am unable to reply, so I will leave this here.
