Probably best if we don't

Ingrid’s dogwood wand was responding well to the challenge. It had a strong sense of fun, and responded best when its owner was enjoying herself. And she couldn’t deny that she was - besides anything else, her competitive streak was fully engaged, and she gave a triumphant little ‘ha’ as the next of her targets fell down.

Her aim faltered slightly when he placed his hand on her hip. She was unused to guys being physical with her outside the very restrained confines of a ballroom, or the rough, ready but utterly unamorous context of the Quidditch Pitch. She was surprised, but not necessarily displeased. The heat from his hand seemed to spread, tickling along her body with ideas, suggestion… She got a slight bump back to earth as a somewhat stronger spray fell over them.

“You did that on purpose,” she accused, grabbing his wand hand by the wrist to try to halt any further assaults on either the targets of her own person, and casting a finite incantatum to stop the water from both their wands. Left fingers around his right wrist, she pulled his arm down, so that it was no longer aiming at the targets. This also pulled them face to face.

“You made me wet,” she protested, although he was near enough that she kept her voice low and soft. She traced her wand down his chest, her green eyes boring into him. “Maybe I should do the same to you,” she suggested, a playful smile on her lips. It was fun, playing with him. There was a rush in her blood. Subconsciously, she drew herself closer, giving into the gravity that wanted to pull her closer into him, angling her hips so that she pressed against him.
