❝ I think Hermione looks hot and that Cho girl looks cute." He smiled innocently although there was nothing innocent when it came to Hunter Jones.
"Well, I'm neither Hermione nor Cho."
"You're right. You're hot and cute. They got nothing on you.❞
This story touches these following subjects: insecurity, people's perception, dealing with loved ones, and learning to love who you are.
Warnings: many Harry Potter references inside.
Since the very first time Hunter Jones laid his eyes on a petite Asian girl, Mey Wang, he couldn't take his eyes off her. The resident bad boy is willing to duck his nose deep in Harry Potter books and learn every spell known just to get closer to the Potter-head girl.
Mey likes Hunter but not in a romantic way. She thinks they're too different. She's a nerd and he's a bad boy. Of course, there're a lot of books about a bad boy and a nerd falling in love and walking to the sunset together but she's not just a nerd, she's also an Asian. Her parents are old-fashioned people, they'd never approve someone like Hunter.
So she tries her best to escape him. But can you really escape love? There's love potion in the spell book but there's no un-love potion, right?

QOTD: Don't let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don't like them. Stacy London.
