A bit AU. Not long after the war, Evelyn and some comrades come to Downton. And after Cora learns of Robert's wandering eye, she takes kind and at first innocent comfort from one of their guests until she realises too late that the friendship she has formed is completely inappropriate. It especially does not sit well in parallel with her fragile marriage. Warning for cliffys.
