“What Hick! are you even saying? That doesn’t Hick! make any Hick! sense!”

Stella stifled a giggle behind her hiccups and finally put all of her available ingredients next to her book, she turned around to see who exactly was the student she sat next to. Oh, it's him. Stella thought to herself as she gave the boy a small smile. From what Stella could tell, there were always two or three students that would make a habit of sitting in the back of the classroom besides herself, and Nalo was one of them. She sort of had a soft spot for the underdog outliers (or should she say outcasts), and it was always funny when they sounded disgruntled.

She knew from personal experience that working in partners had the potential to be terrible, but, again, she was feeling particularly friendly that day. "The potion doesn't Hick! seem too difficult," she suggested, trying to loosen Nalo up. "I'm sure we can figure Hick! it out."
