Author’s Notes: Another fic that came as a result of the Drabble and Drawble meet at the Sectus Picnic in the Park. The prompt, IIRC, was "allergies".
"What are you doing, Ron?" asked Hermione.
"I should hab tort dat was obvious," said Ron, who then let out a mighty sneeze. "I'b sneeding."
"Have you got a cold?"
"Do, I do'd dink so," Ron said through sniffles. "It started earlier today, id Flitwick's lessod."
Flitwick had been teaching the class charms to clean their robes. Hermione, as usual, had mastered it almost immediately - which had come in useful at lunch when Neville had accidentally managed to cause all the soup bowls to empty themselves over the year 2 Gryffindors ((he'd only been trying to levitate his own bowl up the table). Ron and Harry had struggled a bit, but Harry finally seemed to manage it, after perfecting the wand movement and the correct pronunciation ("No! The accent is on the sil", Hermione had explained for the umpteenth time, patience nearly exhausted). Although the boys had finally managed - and Hermione had been disgusted at how many old food stains had been on their robes - Ron had subsequently been itching all over, and was now sneezing repeatedly.
Eventually they decided that only a trip to Professor Flitwick's office would resolve the proble,
"Ah yes," he smiled knowingly. "This happens occasionally with the Kleenus Persillus spell. You must be allergic to the non-bio version of the spell."
