Chapter 2.49: Passing The Torch

Addie’s always talking about money, and stuff, ever since I told her about the legacy.

“Look, mama, I’m just saying, we’re supposed to be this important legacy family, and we can hardly pay our own bills! People should know who we are, you know?”


“Addie, we don’t need to have a million simoleons. Money doesn’t make people happy!”

“Well, we should have enough money to pay our bills, and some left over! Our family is going to be here for generations. I know money isn’t everything, but it is something!”

I’d never cared about how many simoleons we had, and I know it’s not a lot, but…gosh, I never thought of it like that. “Addie.”

“Mama, we’re different people. You just wanted to live your life, be a mom. I want something more than that. I want to make our family great, known. Our descendants should be proud to be a Clemonte.”


“You’re the heir, Addie.”

“Actually, I was going to tell you it should be ‘heiress’, because we’re women.”

“Oh. Yeah, right. Ok, then, you’re the heiress. You’re the future of our family.”


I’d learned a lot of things throughout my life, and now it was Adelaide’s turn. The most important thing I learned was not to let my past define me, even though it took me a long time to learn that. I hit a lot of bumps in the road to get here, I’ll admit it. Even after I got married, it wasn’t an easy path to the family I dreamed of. One miscarriage, four pregnancies, none of which were easy. I’d raised my children alone, without their dad, and if I could change one thing, it would be that. They deserved to know who their dad was, to grow up and make memories with him like I had with my dad. But, I had more than I ever thought I’d have, three wonderful children. 


I’m at peace with myself, I’m happy. Once upon a time, I thought I’d be married by 25, had kids by 30. That didn’t happen, but I’m ok with that. It took my whole life, but I am.


A/N: This is it! Starting next chapter, the story will be told from Adelaide’s perspective! I’m really excited to be starting Addie’s journey, especially because even I don’t know everything that happens yet! 🙂 Yes, I finally caught up, a little after her YA years start, but I’m getting ahead of myself! 😄 Selena has come a long way since we first met her! I will be putting up a feedback post up, I’d really appreciate it if you guys told me what you thought, and what you liked/didn’t like! 🙂

    1. I am so proud of Selena for coming all this way ❤️ I can’t wait for Adelaide’s generation either 😄


  2. What a great conclusion to Selena’s generation! Man, she had a rough time, but seeing her now, peaceful and accepting of her life, gardening away… She did pretty good (: I love that Addie is already very different from both Nadia and Selena! She already has her own voice and I haven’t even gotten into her head yet!

  3. Addie sure has some thoughts about what a legacy family should be! A bit materialistic even? Way different from her Nadia and Selena’s approach.

    1. Yes, she’s definitely different. She isn’t just a family girl, she wants more. And her aspiration was fabulously wealthy 😉

      1. Well good for her she shows a lot of ambition as well! I like that she’s gay I don’t see that very often!

      2. Yeah, I’m queer, so I was definitely going to add an LGBTQ character at some point and there will be more in the future 😃


  4. What a lovely generation – and plenty of ups and downs. I’ll be sad to see Selena go – but I’m intrigued by gen three (and the spoiler pictures). Luck Addie! We’re rooting for you!
