It was not often that Sebastián got to teach a spell in his class. Usually it was all historical events and what wizards have learned from the past. The Spaniard would teach the first year students a bit about the history of a famous duel which used a bit of a silly spell to achieve victory. It was harmless enough to teach to the younger kids and would make the lesson a little more lively for them. He was always trying to make the class more fun than that old ghost would. It was painful trying to study history under Professor Binns and he was happy to have replaced to ghost. The kids would be better off now.RULES

"Okay class, take your seats!" He would shout to the students as they came in, not in a cruel way but in a tone of excitement. "Today we will learn of a famous duel in wizard history. One of the earliest official duels on record is the All-England Wizarding Duelling Competition of 1430. Alberta Toothill is famous for winning this tournament with a blasting curse. That was the end, but how did she win against the odds?"
A few students glanced around and one who seemed to come from a wizarding family raised her hand. It was not meant as a real question, but Sebas decided to give her a chance. He pointed to her after a moment and gave a firm nod. Sebas was curious what she might say.
"I think I know this one, Professor," the girl started off timidly. "She tricked her opponent rather than overpowering him."
A grin crossed the Spaniard's face as she spoke her thoughts. It was fairly true that she had used a bit of trickery to get the win, but duels were so much more than a simple overpowering of one's opponent. They would learn that in time if they ever took an interest in the dueling club itself. After she finished speaking, he gave a slow nod and spoke to add to what she had said.
"Yes, she used something to distract her opponent so that she could deliver a final blow." The History of Magic Professor had set up a training dummy at the back of the room, and he motioned towards it with his wand as he spoke, flicking the wand downwards. "Steleus!"
Green rings flew out from the wand instantly and sped towards the target. They collided with it and nothing happened, at all. A few students seemed confused and looked to Sebastián with questioning eyes. Had he failed in front of them or were they missing something? His face only showed a big grin. A few moments went by before he motioned to a random student, a student from his own house of Gryffindor. The boy stood up and Sebas instructed him to stand in front of the dummy.
"You might be wondering why that did not work." He said to the class, his wand now facing the student who he selected. "I wanted to demonstrate how harmless it was physically before I grabbed a volunteer. Steleus!"
Without pause and without warning, the same green rings leaped from the Spaniard's wand as he flicked it again and slammed into the Gryffindor student's chest. The boy blinked and looked down at himself, noting that no damage had been done. A brief moment later though, he erupted into a fit of sneezing that made his eyes close for a few seconds. Sebastián grinned wide and sent some harmless red sparks to the boy next to symbolize another spell.
"As you can see, his eyes were closed and he was a bit occupied sneezing to see a second attack." He motioned for the boy to sit now that the sneezes were ending. "It is a simple spell that can help you out of a bad situation or to win at duel club meetings. Give it a try. Take turns pointing the wand at the dummy, say the incantation, Steleus, and watch the green rings do their work. Make sure to flick your wand from slightly upwards down towards your target. Think of it as if using the wand to pick your nose, then flicking the booger! Once you get it successfully cast onto the dummy, cast it on yourself!"
It would bring great joy to Sebas to watch the kids hex themselves with sneezes. He loved the children, but it was good to have a little fun with them. Plus they would thank him later if they ever needed to use the spell. The Sneezing Hex helped win major duels in the past and was still popular to this day as a little distraction. Sebastián sat back at his desk and watched the students begin their practice sessions.
