Young and the Restless fans know that Billy and Ash aren’t the best of friends, but he is helping her nonetheless. It’s all about what he can get out of her if he helps her with this little thing, and we can be quite certain that he will definitely ask her for more than he should at some point in the neat future. He is not the kind of man who helps people out just because he wants to do the right thing or help. He’s not that kind of guy.
In fact, he is the kind of guy who does very little else than what he sees as a beneficial situation for him. This means he’s going to focus on things that might work for him, things that might pay off in the long run, and he sees Ash as being someone who might eventually benefit him in some way. We can see that, but we also see that she might have some bigger problems at some point.
What might she want from him, and what might he eventually want from her? He knows she hates VIckie and vice versa, and he’s always team Vickie. So what will happen if she finds out he is helping the woman she hates so much? It cannot go over well, and we think that he will do whatever he can to keep this from her as long as possible. It won’t do him well for her to find out that this is going on.
