Welcome back to the NEW Pokemon Legacy! Where
there’s a depressing lack of cereal, I blame Anna she
knows I love cereal and refuses to give me some. On
a serious note, the timeline may be a little odd in this
chapter. Technically even if I played it after the girls
college chapter, it’s going on at the same time.
Not a lot happened last chapter, the Quads went to college.
Did very well of course, with Ivy and Venu in the same house
who wouldn’t do well. Bulbasaur got engaged to Greg and
they invited Kendal to live with them in the Greek, but I
forgot to write everyone’s last name down. And I’m too lazy
to go look.
Hollie’s stomach gave a familiar lurch when she
stood up. Frammit, she should have been more
careful with Thai, she knew better. Sari was proof of
that. But he was so kind and great with her little girl,
she couldn’t resist.
She had to call him as soon as it was polite to call.
He had a right to know. She was afraid that he
would be upset, her house was dire need of work
and she didn’t know if she could raise two kids by
“I thought I had heard a lullaby the other night.” Thai
said taking her hands.
“Not easy to hide is it?” She said blushing.
“Don’t worry about it Hollie.” He grinned, “It happens.
“Let’s do it the proper way, Hollie Bellafonte will
you marry me?”
“Thai!” She gasped, “Not just because of this?”
“Nope, I love you.”
“Then yes, I will marry you Thai Colours!”
Anna woke early the morning after her birthday. The grey
hair didn’t look so bad she decided. It was strangely quiet
in the house. She hoped the quads were okay, she felt bad
for not getting a chance to give them a proper goodbye.
“Think it’s going to be weird at school with everyone
gone?” Mel asked sliding her hands out of reach.
“It’ll be nice, not being in their shadows.” Rizzi
shrugged, her teacher had had Ivy and Venu and
always pressure Rizzi to be more like them. “I just
hope the bus driver still drives fast. Going down the
steep hill it’s like flying.”
“School buses can’t fly Rizzi.”
The TV had broken during the party, Anna dug around
until she found Venu’s tools. She miss her girls already,
Venu had such a talent for fixing things. Luckily is was
nothing a little poking around with a screwdriver
Cleve prepared breakfast pastries for breakfast, the girls talked about what
schloarships they would go for. Rizzi wanted to follow in Venu’s footsteps
and net the mechnical scholarship.
“I’m not sure which ones I want.” Mel admitted, “I think I just have the Good
“It’s up to you dear.” Anna said “Cleve, I think the carpool is honking.”
“That sounds like it.” Cleve said, “And the school bus. Let’s go girls, Mom
will clean up your plates.”
Mel and Rizzi got home shortly after Anna left. Rizzi went and
played chess ignoring the boy that had gotten off the bus with
“Hi I’m Charmeleon, or just Mel for short.” She said taking over
host duties, since Rizzi obliviously didn’t care to. Of course before
the boy could answer the phone rang, “Excuse me, one sec.”
Cleve had finally come home bringing Tara with him as usual.
“So do you want to be a warlock?” She asked the young man, if she could convince
one of the girls’ friend maybe one of them would follow. She had to undermine
Pony’s influence on the family. That dratted Simself was totally unaware of the
family’s latent power. She had to control the family before her rivals realized the
family was here.
“Do I have to wear a hat?” The boy asked.
Tara sighed, “Yes.”
“No can do, it’ll mess up my hair.”
After Anna got home all the guests were sent away and
the family got to spend a quiet night alone.
The next morning Anna found herself in front of the
mirror again, not looking at her face, but practicing
speaking to large crowds. She was due for a promotion
soon but she need to brush up on her skills. Briefly she
had thought about retiring. She was certainly old
enough now, but she still hadn’t achieved her dream.
She would work for as long as she could.
Time flew by as it always did, and here goes
The girls got home while Anna was still
away. Both had friends tag along, though
Rizzi was regretting her choice of Juan
“I got homework to do.” She said, she
should have ask Gordon to come over again
at least he didn’t tell stupid jokes.
“Aww come on Rizzi, just one more.”
Thing had not gone as well as she had hoped.
There was a rumor of a costume party going
around and she foolishly believed it and had
been the only one wearing a costume, she
had been demoted. But at least she didn’t
lose her job entirely.
When Cleve got home all the guests were sent away,
except Tara Kody, Mel wondered why the witch
followed Cleve home from work everyday, asking her
and Rizzi if they wanted to join the path of light. Mel
didn’t care too. It seemed like a lot of work and she
just wanted to have fun with her dad. He needed a
logic point for work and had asked her to help him.
Anna was just as uncomfortable with Tara always
around. She finally had Rizzi politely ask the woman to
go home. Pony and Ani-Mei hadn’t said anything yet
about the witch’s intentions with her family. Anna was
growing impatient, everyday Tara came home with
Cleve, and she couldn’t think of a polite way to ask Cleve
to stop her.
Back to her old job, Anna had the house to herself for
most of the day. Her carpool came as the girls came
home from school. She hadn’t worked on her novel in
a while and decided she would use her time wisely for
once. It was so close to being done, maybe she could
finish it before Mel and Rizzi went to go to college.
“So my teacher mentioned that Hogen’s Scholarship was looking for
someone to sponsor.” Rizzi told her sister, “All I gotta do is get eight
out of ten on their exam.”
“Really, but didn’t you score a 0 last time.”
“I’ll fix that, Dad said he would buy me and exercise bike. Which
scholarship are you gonna go after?”
“I dunno yet, I think I’m just going to practice painting like Mom and
see what happens.”
“Tara? Are you paying attention, I’ve worked really
hard on this speech to get more parks.” Cleve
asked, his friends was staring off into space.
“Oh I’m sorry.” Tara smiled, “I was watching Miss
Mel paint, she’s as gifted as her mother.”
“That’s alright, I’ll start from the top.”
Cleve eventually gave up trying to keep Tara’s attention and wandered off grumbling.
“This is quite a studio you have.” Tara coming up behind Mel, “Use the other blue
dear, it’ll blend better.”
“It’s Mom’s studio.” Mel replied, switching blues, “I didn’t know you liked to paint.”
“Me, no, but I do appreciate good art when I see it. You’ll have to visit the castle
sometime, I got quite a collection of rare pieces.”
“Thank you, but I better get Mom’s permission first.” She said feeling a little creeped
“Three down, only five more to go.” Rizzi gloated, though
she wouldn’t tell Mel that she had used Venu’s trick with
the energizer. Mel would just think it’s cheating.
The sun was just beginning to rise when she finally
finished, A Girl and her Pony, was at last sent off to
It sold better than expected. Her creativity gleened from painting
had carried over to the book. She got a royalty check for almost
$2,500. She was going to put it all in savings, where everything was
going so they could remodel the house when the time came. Then
of course Pony called,
“Come to Bluewater with us Anna, we haven’t taken the ferry in
“Alright, let me get dressed see everyone off.”
Strangely enough she was excited like her first
trip to the shopping district, it had been such
a long time.
Anna was just going to window shop, but Ani-Mei and
Pony ganged up on her to buy new clothes.
“That pink shirt and purple skirt doesn’t suit you.” Pony
“How about this?” Ani-Mei said picking a bunch of
clothes off the rack. “Green looks good.”
Anna spent almost all the check and most of the day.
She finally told her friends she had to get home. Pony
kept making faces behind the poor cashier’s back.
Poor girl probably thought Anna was laughing at her.
She had a little time before the girls got home. Ani-
Mei and Pony had been right, it was nice to have
new clothes, she hadn’t been shopping since she left
Pleasant View. Not that she missed that place at all.
Her home was here, spraying bugs off the tree while
waiting for her family to get home.
Rizzi came home and immediately changed into
her work out clothes.
“Mom I’m going for a jog, I’m only two points
away from the Hogan Award.”
“I’ll go with you, I need to work out more
“Fine by me.”
Mel breathed a sigh of relief, the house was utterly
quiet, is was so nice to have the place to herself and to
Much to her displeasure, Tara Kody came home
with her dad once again.
“You need to use a brighter orange dear, to capture
the essence of the flower.”
“I like it this way.” She said biting her lip to keep
from saying something rude.
Anna was up late, reading Cleve’s book, The Tale of Six. Ever present Tara Kody was
“You are just a pawn of the simselves.” Tara said quietly, “Do you think they care for
you or your family, you are but a toy to them, a passing fascination. “
“That is enough, Tara.” She snapped, shutting the book, “You need to leave.”
“I’ll go but think about it, when they lose interest, I’ll will still be here.”
Her hands shaking she worked on her latest
painting to calm her nerves. Drat that woman
coming to her house everyday to spew filth the
moment Cleve was out of the room. Ani-Mei and
Pony were her friends, simselves or not, they
would watch over her family.
She couldn’t bring herself to tell Cleve when he
found her to ask if she would go on a date.
Obviously the spring air put him in a cheerful mood.
She left herself get whisked away in his passion. He
was quite charming after all.
Mel and Rizzi were busy working on their
scholarships. Mel had finally achieve the Quigley's
Visual Arts Award and Rizzi a hairbreadth's away form
getting the Hogan’s. They only had two more days to
finish. Less than that actually, Cleve’s birthday was
this weekend as well as Orion’s, Ani-Mei was inviting
Once Rizzi got the Hogan she switched to getting
her mechanical skills up. Mel thought about
going for another scholarship but she was having
too much fun painting.
The phone rang, Mel was the only person
available to get it, despite being covered in
“Hello?” She asked.
“Mel? It’s Ani-Mei, the party’s about to start,
are you guys coming?”
“Yeah, Mom’s at work but the rest of us are
coming. I’ll get Dad and Rizzi.
Good thing they were the first ones to arrive, Ani-Mei
was in labor by the time they got to her house. Mel
hadn’t even known her mom’s friend was pregnant
“Breathe Ani-Mei breathe!” Ani-Mei’s husband was
“Do you need hot water and towels?” Dad was asking.
Why were boys so silly when it came to having babies?
Ani-Mei gave birth to twin girls, Athena and Demeter.
Both girls looked just like their mother for now. With big
blue eyes and brown hair.
“Reias, I think I want seven more of these.”
“We’re going to need a bigger house then.” Reias said
fondly admiring his two daughters.
Soon the other guest arrived, even Anna, and it was
time for Orion to grow up at last.
A/N: We’re just gonna ignore the babies on the floor
and the fact that Anna’s wearing her old clothes.
Orion grew up with a flurry of confetti and
wearing a bright orange shirt.
“Momma, Daddy, look at how big I am now?” The
little boy clapped his hand and ran to get cake.
After Orion’s party, the Pokemon family
trouped back to the family home for a party of
“How come I never got a Jello cake?” Ivy asked
“Well when all your teeth fall out, you can
have all the Jello cake you want.” Charrie
“Girls.” Anna scolded.
“Sorry Mom.” Charrie grinned, “Happy Birthday Dad.”
“OMG!” Charrie exclaimed, “It happens so
“Well duh, remember how fast our birthday’s
went.” Ivy retorted.
“I don’t look that bad do I?” Cleve asked.
“No dear, there’s new clothes in the dresser if
you feel the need to change.”
He did go change, but too bad looking for an old
man. Anna had an eye for clothes, but she was an
artist after all.
The party was a quiet one, the girls mainly played
together like they used to. Though Mel claimed to be
exhausted and went to be early. Anna and Cleve sat on
the couches talking with Venu while the other
entertained themselves. Cleve missed the old days when
his girls were all young and lived at home. They were
growing up too fast, but all kids did. Anna and he needed
to figure out who would be the heir and come home to
have their family. But they could figure that out later.
Early Sunday morning Rizzi finally netted the Mechanics
award. She wished she had a little more time to get some
scholarships but at least she could take the thinking cap off.
“I can’t believe this is our last day at home.” Mel said as they played
“One of us will come back here you know.” Rizzi as Mel pulled her
hands out of the way.
“Yeah, but not me, I don’t want to be heir.”
“What do you want to do then?”
“Have parties, jump on couches, date any man I want to. Not be tied
to producing the next generation.” Mel shrugged.
“I remember the first time Cleve and I dated, it feels like it was yesterday.” Anna
told Ani-Mei. Her friend had volunteered to drive the girls to the airport so Anna
and Cleve wouldn’t have to worry about staying up so late.
“Time flies.” Ani-Mei smiled, “Seems only yesterday that the girls were babies.”
“How do I pick just one to move back home and carry on?”
“How about you let them choose? I bet they’re making plans for their lives now,
see which one leads to home.”
“I guess I could do that.”
Evening came and the girls said their goodnights
to Anna and Cleve and sat on the couches
“You ready girls?” Ani-Mei asked grabbing her
“I guess we ought to be.” Rizzi quipped.
“Yes, we’re ready.” Mel nodded.
That’s it for this chapter on the NEW Pokemon
Legacy, I hope you enjoyed it.
I went ahead and grew Athena and Demeter,
there was a party, but it was too out of sync
with the storyline to put it in. Athena is a
clone of Orion, she’s in the green dress. And I
forgot Demeter’s stats, but she’s different than
her siblings. She’s in the orange and black
