A tiny spoiler from the 2012 Christmas special is included, so don't say I didn't warn you! ;) But alas, this is just some fluff that popped into my head while freaking out to things people, who ride the Carson/Hughes ship, have been saying on tumblr. Enjoy.

"Was worth the while then?" he asked.

"Of course it was! I only wish you'd have come too," replied Mrs. Hughes.

Mr. Carson raised an eyebrow very questionable as though he thought she was teasing him.

From this Mrs. Hughes felt she had to elaborate, "I only meant it would have been nice to see your inner child come out and play."

Mr. Carson smiled a bit disappointingly, "I would rather polish all the silver in the house."

"When would you not?" laughed Mrs. Hughes.

Mr. Carson walked away chuckling to himself.

"I wish you'd just tell him," said Mrs. Crawley from nowhere.

"Mrs. Crawley what are you doing down here?" asked Mrs. Hughes.

"Well I was looking for Anna but let's not avoid my topic of conversation."

"I have no idea what you're talking about Mrs. Crawley."

"Mrs. Hughes, today I made one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Doctor Clarkson practically ask me to marry him and I pretended not to know what he meant because I was scared of admitting that I had fallen in love with that man," rambled Mrs. Crawley, quite distressed.

"I… I don't know what you're suggesting," lied Mrs. Hughes nervously.

"Of course you do! Look me in the eye and tell me you don't love Mr. Carson!" shouted Mrs. Crawley.

Mrs. Hughes looked around furiously to see if anybody had heard what Mrs. Crawley had just announced, "I don't… I can't say it…"

Mrs. Crawley smiled weakly, "I'm sorry I shouted, I'm just a bit… Well I feel so stupid for what I have done, or rather what I haven't done today. Please don't make the same mistake as I did, goodbye Mrs. Hughes."

With that Mrs. Crawley simply walked away.

"Oh, Mrs. Hughes?' Shouted Mr. Carson as he ran back, "I forgot to ask-"

"Oh Charles!" Smiled Mrs. Hughes as she rushed up to hug him.

Yes it's short but I kind of like it that way, please leave a comment if you enjoyed. Bye!
