    Summary

    In response to chelsie-anon's prompt: She was due any moment & Charles Carson wanted everything to be perfect. He dusted & vacuumed the sitting room, changed the sheets on the bed & all that was left was to clean the kitchen. He'd mastered the art of clearing away & stacking the new fangled appliance but he'd only ever watched as she poured the crystals into the cup. He searched high & low but all he could find was the liquid soap, it was for dishes too, he thought & leaned down to fill the cup to the very brim…what happens next?
