Sharon did kiss Victor. It was her that iniated the kiss. I believe that the kiss happened at Sharon's house. And I believe that Nick was walking up towards the door and looked in the window and saw them kissing. Nick was mad at his dad for a long time and wouldn't even speak to him because he thought that his dad had come on to Sharon. Sharon had been going through a lot of stuff at the time and she had reached out to put her arms around Victor and hug him. (he was there talking to her to try to make her feel better). Then a hug turned into her grabbing Victor and putting one hell of a kiss on him. Needless to say, Nikki wasn't happy either.
Micheal Baldwin never raped Christine. He sexually harassed her. He did attempt to rape her, but someone walked in and saved her from being raped. (I believe that it was Paul Williams). At the time that this happened, Christine was working for Micheal Baldwin at his law firm. She was really new in the legal business. She hadn't been there very long. She ended up pressing charges against him for sexual assault and attempted rape. He served time in jail. He lost his license to practice law. If I remember right, Christine ended up taking over the law firm that they had both been working at while Michael was in jail. Micheal became a changed man in jail. When he got out he wanted to prove that he was really sorry for what he had done to Christine. He wanted her forgiveness so that he could go on with his life. At the time, Christine (aka Cricket) was with Danny. Danny was really sick and in need of a kidney. If he didn't get a kidney soon, he was going to die. Michael stepped up and offered to donate one of his kidneys. So Michael saved Danny's life. Because of this, Christine forgave him. She saw that he was a new, better person. So she also fought to get Michael's law license reinstated so that he could practice law again. (She was actually his attorney for this). She won. He got his license re-instated. She then asked him to be her partner at her law firm. He accepted. They even ended up dating and getting engaged a little while later on down the line. I don't remember exactly why they broke off the engagement.
So, there you go. I hope that this answer helped.
