Neighbours, Ned Willis, Bea Nilsson

After Ned finally confesses his true feelings for Bea, the friends take another late-night stroll together and find themselves kissing!

As schoolgirl Yashvi Rebecchi's crush on her handsome neighbour Ned Willis continues, she secretly plots to spend more time with him.

She sneakily cancels all the other guests who have signed-up for Ned's graffiti tour in the city, and then turns up alone to surprise him!

However, after a tip-off from friend Bea Nilsson about Yashvi's schoolgirl crush, an awkward Ned tries to let the teenager down gently by revealing he has feelings for someone but the time is not right for them to be together.

Unfortunately, Yashvi misinterprets the message and thinks Ned wants to be with her once she's a bit older. Whoops!

When Bea gets wind of what's going on, she confronts Ned about getting involved with a schoolgirl. But he takes her by surprise when he reveals Bea is the girl he is patiently waiting for! The pair take another late-night stroll together, this time to the Botanical Gardens. And against the backdrop of a romantic light display, they find themselves kissing...
