Bear-san, Starting The Search Again

After thanking the Granny and the Guard, we left the village.

“In the end, we didn’t get to hear the name of the country or the name of the town.” (Noa)

“Well, it can’t be helped. We couldn’t have outright asked them about those since we claimed we were from a nearby town. After all, there is no one who would not know the name of their own town or country.” (Yuna)

If I lived in Japan and asked a passerby, “What country is this?” they would definitely reply with, “Huh?”

It might have been easier if our group looked like a travelling merchant or an adventurer from afar, but we were a strange combination of a strange girl in a bear suit and a girl who looked like she was from a wealthy family.

“Yes, I agree. On the other hand, if we asked them if they knew about Crimonia, they probably wouldn’t know.” (Noa)

Noa quickly understood what I was trying to say.

She was quick-witted and understanding for her age.

“Well, at any rate, we did manage to get some information about the fairies, the monsters in the area, and the location of the town, so there’s no problem. Above all, the Granny was happy to see Primme.” (Noa)

“Hmph, this is all thanks to me.” (Primme)

Primme puffed out her chest.

She looked happy, so I was glad that we stopped by.

“So, Noa, can you still sense Primme’s sister’s location?” (Yuna)

Noa meditated for a moment, then slowly pointed.

“That way.” (Noa)

“I guess we might not need to go to the town we heard about, after all.” (Yuna)

The location Noa pointed at was different from the location of the nearby town the villagers told us about.

“But, Yuna-san, I’m sure this direction goes to…” (Noa)

Noa seemed to have picked up on the issue as well.

Not only was it in the opposite direction of the town the villager told us about, but it was also in the direction where the monsters were supposedly located.

Why did it have to be in the direction where monsters reside?!

I was only borrowing Cliff’s words, but was I really a magnet for all sorts of troubles and calamities?

No, I didn’t think so. This time, we just happened to be passing by a location with monsters blocking the way to our destination.

“I’ll decide whether to avoid them or continue on, once we get close enough to the area.” (Yuna)

I have detection skills as well as Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, so we could decide how dangerous it would be after we closed in on the location.

Noa nodded. After getting on Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, respectively, they started running in the direction Noa indicated.

“By the way, can monsters see fairies?” (Yuna)

“Hmmm…. I’ve occasionally been out in the fairy forest and encountered monsters, and some of them did react to me.” (Primme)

“Does that mean that monsters might be able to see fairies?” (Yuna)

“I don’t know.” (Primme)

“Why not?” (Yuna)

“Yuna, are you stupid?” (Primme)

“…me, stupid?” (Yuna)

I was called stupid again.

“Well, let’s ask Noa about it… Noa, what would you do if a monster was nearby?” (Primme)

“I would definitely try to escape.” (Noa)

“That’s the answer I expected. After all, even fairies will run away if they see a monster.” (Primme)

“Even though the monsters may not be able to see them?” (Yuna)

“They might be able to see us, you know?” (Primme)

I see. Even if the monsters couldn’t see them, it would still be scary, and the priority would be to flee rather than verify it.

“As I said before, there were some monsters that reacted to me. Maybe they can see me. Or perhaps they can feel my presence. They may be sensing my magic power or smelling me. I don’t know how monsters react to my presence. But unlike people, you can’t really talk to monsters about it.” (Primme)

I couldn’t argue with that.

I wouldn’t dare ask a monster, “Can you see me?” And if it really could, there would be a higher chance of it turning hostile and attacking me.

Primme might be right about how monsters detected her, but only monsters would know the truth.

If it was by smell, one might notice a movement on the monster’s nose. If it was by site, then the monster would be looking directly or moving its eyes. Regardless of what method it used, the danger remained the same.

“Regarding the monsters, they normally can’t enter the fairy forest, just as humans can’t, and the number of times I’ve encountered them is not that frequent.” (Primme)

I guess that probability might be the same as encountering a wild animal in my previous world.

While we were talking, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear continued to run slowly. Then, they suddenly stopped and cooed.

“What’s with the sudden stop?” (Primme)

Primme complained while hovering over Swaying Bear’s head after the sudden stop.

I used my detecting skills.

“It looks like there are monsters around.” (Yuna)

It was just as I had heard in the village.

“Yuna-san, what should we do?” (Noa)

It would be easy for me to defeat them, but I would like to refrain from showing Noa how bloody the result of the battle would be. She might even be frightened by the encounter.

But Primme had an opinion.

“Of course, we’ll avoid them. I don’t know how dangerous it will be even if we do have these two around.” (Primme)

Primme said, patting Swaying Bear’s head.

Noa and I looked at each other.

“…” (Yuna)

“…Ah.” (Noa)

We both understood what Primme was thinking.

“Speaking of which, Primme-san didn’t know about Yuna-san, right?” (Noa)

Indeed, we didn’t really have the chance to talk about me.

“Primme-san, Yuna-san is strong and can even defeat monsters.” (Noa)

“Really?” (Primme)

Primme looked at me in disbelief.

“Well, I probably couldn’t defeat every monster. But, I can certainly take down some wolves.” (Yuna)

Primme was still looking at me in disbelief.

“That’s one of the reasons why my father allowed me to go.” (Noa)

“Oh, I do remember that agreement. I thought it was because of these two mysterious bears.” (Primme)

Primme looked at Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.

“Actually, I thought for sure Yuna would refuse. Or say that it would be too dangerous. After all, you are also a young girl. However, after being together with these bears, I think I can understand why you two girls were given permission to help me.” (Primme)

“That’s not all, it’s simply that Yuna-san is a powerful adventurer, you see.” (Noa)

“Adventurers, as I recall, are people who defeat monsters, right?” (Primme)

“That’s right, you seem to know a lot about adventurers.” (Yuna)

“I’ve seen them before, but Yuna doesn’t look like a strong adventurer to me.” (Primme)

“I get that a lot.” (Yuna)

“So what are we going to do? Keep going? Take a detour? I don’t want Yuna to push herself too hard, even if she is strong.” (Primme)

“Well, since Noa is with us, I’ll also suggest taking a detour.” (Yuna)

“Yuna-san, I don’t think you need to…” (Noa)

“I don’t mean to sound like Primme, but I just don’t want to take any risks.” (Yuna)

If that village were to get attacked as retaliation for me entering the wolves’ territory, it would be a big problem. I would appreciate it if I could defeat all the wolves, but that was not my goal this time. The objective was to find Primme’s sister.

There was no need for me to break the rules that the village had established and adhered to.

“Alright, with that decided, we’ll continue on our way while avoiding the places where Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear detects the wolves.” (Yuna)


Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear responded and started running.

I could leave the rest to them, as Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear could also detect monsters.

We bypassed the place where the wolves were, and continued on our way.

“Yuna-san, if we keep going like this, we’ll end up running over a mountain…” (Noa)

There was a small mountain ahead of us, not as high as the one between Crimonia and Mileela, but it still had a high altitude.

“Are we moving in the right direction?” (Yuna)

I asked Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear to stop running for a bit to let Noa concentrate.

“Yes.” (Noa)

The mountain road was not paved, so if ordinary people wanted to ascend, even if it was a small mountain, it would still be a challenge. But we have Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.

Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear carried us through the mountain, stopping at the top for some rest before heading back down.

It was getting dark when we reached the bottom of the mountain, so we decided to spend the night there.

“It looks like we’re getting pretty close to Primme’s sister.” (Yuna)

“If it weren’t for Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear, we’d be in trouble.” (Noa)

“Yuna and Noa, thank you for coming with me. I don’t think I could have done it on my own.” (Primme)

“I think it was good that you decided not to do it alone.” (Yuna)

“Yes. Without your help, it would have been hopeless.” (Primme)

“I’m glad to be of help.” (Yuna)


“They were asking if they were of help as well.” (Yuna)

“Yes, you two are. Thank you.” (Primme)

Primme flew over Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear’s heads and patted their heads.

Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear squealed happily.

The next day, we continued our journey, avoiding monsters and potential dangers.

If I were on my own, I would have gone ahead in a straight line, killing any monsters I ran into, but this time, I prioritized safety, given that I was with someone else.

As we were making good progress, Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear stopped again.

“What!” (Primme)

Primme, who was sleeping on top of Swaying Bear’s head, almost fell off.

I immediately used my detection skill to look at the distance, because of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear’s reactions.

There was a reaction of monsters and a reaction of people.

The monsters were many Wolves. The number of people fighting the wolves seems to be over 5 with others waiting on the side.

“It looks like there are monsters up ahead. And people with them.” (Yuna)

“Are they being attacked?” (Noa)

“They might be adventurers in a fight.” (Yuna)

“But what if they are just ordinary people?” (Noa)

The worst thing that could happen in such encounters was to worry about it and be too late to help. However, in the current case, we still had some leeway to decide on what we should do.

“What should we do? Save them?” (Yuna)

“I don’t want anyone to be found dead later, so that might be the best choice to do.” (Noa)

I didn’t have any intention of helping anyone unless I encountered them directly, but now that I found out about them, I couldn’t just leave them be.

“Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, let’s go quickly!” (Yuna)


Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear ran at great speed, and soon, the wolves and people came into view.

The moment I saw them, I gave Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear instructions.

“Swaying Bear, Hugging Bear, hide behind that rock.” (Yuna)

“Yuna-san, what’s the matter?” (Noa)

I placed my finger in front of my lips to signal them to be silent. Though in actuality, I was instead placing my bear puppet in front of my mouth, but Noa seemed to understand my gesture.

Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear moved behind a rock diagonally to the right.

I dismounted from the Swaying Bear and peeked out from behind the rock.

It was Knight-like men who were fighting with a pack of wolves.
