Nikki’s fairy tale.

In this week’s “The Young and the Restless” Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to the mid-1980s when Nikki Newman told her daughter Victoria the story about The Wicked Witch, otherwise known as Ashley Abbott…

These days Christine despises Nikki, due to her connection to Paul and the accident that caused the loss of her baby. Years ago, Nikki felt much of the same hatred for Ashley. Nikki tried to mask her anger around Victoria by telling her a story about a wicked witch when in fact she was seething over Ashley trying to take Victor away from them. Victoria asked if her mother was angry at her, but Nikki assured her daughter that she wasn’t. At Victoria’s request Nikki began to tell her a story…

The characters included a very happy mommy, daddy and little girl who lived on a big ranch with lots of horses… Until one day a wicked witch turned herself into a beautiful woman in order to cast a spell on ‘the daddy’ to steal him away. Nikki continued to express how sad the mommy and little girl were and how the mommy tried to think of a way to break the spell. In the end, a few words were spoken and the beautiful lady turned back into an ugly old witch, leaving the mommy, daddy and little girl to live happily ever after.
