((Bart Cappotelli continued from 4649お願いします!))

For some reason, Bart didn't really know what to do on this particular afternoon. He didn't really feel like watching any of his cartoons, and he didn't feel up to listening to any of his music either, not even Big Pun. He had been doing the same things pretty much every day for weeks, and he felt like he needed a change, even if it was just for one day. He wanted to do something that he didn't normally do.

That was how he got the idea to go to the Kingman Museum of Art and History. It had been around six months since his last visit, so it was far enough outside of his usual routine to be of interest. Plus, he wanted to know how much, if at all, the museum had changed in the past half-year. He made sure to bring a sketchbook and paper, just in case he saw something cool that he wanted to draw.

Bart walked around the lobby, looking at the sculptures on display. He found most of them to be pretty interesting, but his favorite was the coyote. It looked so fierce, yet so noble. If there was only one sculpture in his lobby that he could truly appreciate, this was it.

The sculpture gave Bat an idea. Since he had his sketchbook, he could draw it, or at least something inspired by it. He had been having trouble coming up with ideas lately, so maybe this was the sort of opportunity he needed in order to get his train of thought back on track.

Bart walked over to a nearby bench, muttering a brief "Excuse me..." to the girl sitting on the other side before sitting down. He turned his sketchbook to an open page and tapped his pencil on the paper while looking at the steel coyote. He had a subject, now he just needed an idea to come to him.

Bart looked up from his paper to respond to Jennifer. "Oh, uh... yeah. I've kinda been having some trouble finding inspiration to draw lately, so I thought that coming here might help." He looked back at the statue through the corner of his eye, then took a quick glance down at his still empty paper. "Um... I think it might be working."

Bart had never been very good when it came to conversation, and he would be the first to admit that. However, Jennifer was in the writing club with him, so he would have thought that he would have an easier time talking to her. Unfortunately, that wasn't really having too much of a positive effect, since he still felt nervous trying to strike up a conversation. But since he had managed to actually get some words out, he figured that he might as well give it a shot.

"So... are you drawing the coyote too?"

Bart was a little surprised at first when Jennifer started asking about his animations. He didn't know that she was aware of that. However, he quickly realized that the reason she probably knew was because he had talked about his animations in the writing club before. He didn't think that anyone had actually remembered that, let alone care to bring it up in conversation. "Um... yeah. I'm worried that I might be running out of ideas, so I'm trying to come up with new ones."

While Bart was talking, he couldn't help but notice Jennifer's nose wrinkling with disgust. He didn't bother to hypothesize about the source, because he was quite positive that he knew the reason. The smell that followed him around was always the first thing that people noticed, provided they didn't draw attention to his weight first. Even when they weren't making jokes about it, he still noticed noticed that those traits were always the ones that caught people's attention. He let out a sigh before drawing attention to the elephant in the room.

"It's the smell, isn't it?"

He knew it. Jennifer had noticed his smell. Bart wasn't really offended. After all, he had figured that it was his most notable characteristic. However, that didn't mean that he particularly liked to be reminded of it, intentionally or otherwise. At least she wasn't trying to be rude about it, though. That was a luxury that a lot of people hadn't bothered with in the past.

"It's a medical condition." He said with a noticable undertone of disappointment in his voice. "It's been following me for years, and it doesn't look like it's going to go away anytime soon." He closed his eyes and took a breath. "It's not like I haven't tried to do anything about it, but it always comes right back."

Well, he had just spilled the beans about something that he rarely, if ever talked about with anyone outside of his parents. Either he had just opened up a new can of worms, or he had totally killed the current conversation. Either way, he couldn't deny that it actually felt kind of nice to really admit the source of his perpetual odor to someone.

It didn't really comfort him much, but it was something.
