May Queen

Work Text:

The sun shone down on Downton village as the May Day celebrations got underway. The fair was in full swing, with stalls lining the green and a May Pole standing in the middle. Robert watched the girls as they danced around it, beaming with pride. Cora stood beside him.
“This has gone rather well.” He smiled.
“Sybil makes a wonderful May Queen.” Cora agreed.
Robert put his arm around her.
“You’re my May Queen.”
“Robert!” She laughed.
Robert pulled her close.
“She takes after you, you know.”
Cora put her head on his shoulder, smiling as they watched the celebrations.
