Shoulda Dressed Like a Penguin Like Me

Oh! It was Summer! Nando had had a few classes with her and since they shared the same house, he often saw her in between classes as well. They sat together occasionally, sometimes in the common room where she would watch him practice his light charms. He noticed she liked pretty lights, so he would sometimes experiment with different colors to see if he could impress her (I mean come on, what's there not to be impressed by). The most notorious memory he had with her was the time in potions where he had accidentally caused a minor explosion when attempting to light the fire underneath the cauldron. Very smooth. But, Nando thought to himself, now, she'll remember me forever.

Suddenly embarrassed that he had asked someone pretty to push him, he turned bright red when he felt her hands press into him. Instinctually, he tried to move back, but to no avail. “I think I’m also stuck. Do you think it has to do with that?” She pointed at the mistletoe. The mistletoe spell had them exactly where it wanted them. He gulped.

"Uh, ah, umm-" His mind was racing a thousand miles an hour. Well, he typically thought like that, so it was an additional thousand miles an hour. Two thousand miles an hour, some would say. He looked to his left and his right; there were people all around him. His parents were never particularly into PDA, so Nando never got a feel for it. Hell- he preferred to hug people in private. And besides, he hadn't even ever hugged a girl outside of his family, much less kissed one. He felt very childish in his penguin-like attire compared to how pretty Summer looked in her dress. It didn't help that she totally looked like a fairy princess DnD character, so it was checking all the imaginary boxes he wasn't even aware that he had.

Very quietly, he whispered. "D-do you think we can get rid of it with a first bump or is this a sort of kiss-the-princess-break-the-spell kinda vibe?"
