The Sweet One:

ASH­LEY (Eileen Davidson) & NEIL (Kristoff St. John)

TV Soap - - The Young And The Restless -

Friends since Neil rst came to Genoa City and started work­ing along­side her at Jabot Cos­met­ics in 1991, he and Ash­ley have hap­pilly worked and so­cialised to­gether – with only a brief but abortive hint (in 2010) of the pla­tonic re­la­tion­ship turn­ing ro­man­tic, un­til re­cently. They have many com­mon in­ter­ests in­clud­ing big brains and mul­ti­ple mar­riages (he has ve, she has seven) and are now com­fort­ing each other through their re­spec­tive trou­bles. Most re­cently Neil has of­fered his shoul­der as Ash­ley strug­gled with mum Dina’s (Marla Adams) ill­ness and brother Jack’s (Peter Bergman) pa­ter­nity search; while Ash­ley has given him con­so­la­tion over Hi­lary’s death – and Lily (Chris­tel Khalil) be­ing blamed for it. De­vel­op­ing new­found af­fec­tion for each other, these two are also tak­ing the slow and ten­der path to ro­mance af­ter a sweet din­ner date that came com­plete with mu­sic, slow danc­ing and a soft kiss. Since then, the af­fec­tion has ramped up with Neil prov­ing an ex­pert stress-re­liever as Ash­ley plots to de­throne an in­ca­pable Billy as Jabot CEO. In pur­su­ing the ro­mance the usu­ally cau­tious pair is choos­ing to keep grow­ing feel­ings un­der wraps. Even­tu­ally, the af­fair will be made pub­lic and when it is, Jack will surely protest loudly against it, cit­ing their be­trayal of him as Ash­ley’s fam­ily and Neil’s his best friend. Billy won’t be too happy about it, ei­ther, and the con­se­quences may con­trib­ute to Ash­ley’s con rmed de­par­ture from GC later this year...
