7. Landing On Her Feet


1. I’m going to post a quick timeline just in case anyone’s confused about the order of events since Cassie left prison. I realise the method I used in the chapter may be a little confusing!!

  • Cassie leaves prison
  • Cassie moves in with Matt
  • Cassie goes to see Sue
  • Cassie’s meal out with Sue
  • Maria suggests that Cassie write her book
  • Cassie begins her first draft
  • Cassie discovers she is pregnant
  • Cassie has Tristan
  • Cassie’s book is published

And then the rest of this chapter takes place some time after Cassie’s book has been out. I have taken quite a few liberties with the time span, but I won’t say anything more if you won’t!

2. Just in case anyone is wondering, I really did have a birthday party for Tristan. I’m sorry for the lack of screen shots, but I’d accidentally put the cake at the wrong angle so you couldn’t see anyone celebrating in any of the good pictures! Also, quite a few guests just carried on watching the television while Tristan was blowing out his candles. So rude!!

  1. great chapter!!!! so glad she has tristan now and i love her and matt as a couple. i have to say the jail chapters were very exciting and you have used a lot of the time line skipping very effectively to keep the twists hidden so congrats on that i never know what is coming. the jail chapters also reminded me a bit of Bad Girls – did you get any inspiration from the show? either way they’re both great.

    im wondering now if matt grows up to become the heir and that’s when ivy will show up wanting her share πŸ˜€ its obviously just speculation but would be good or else if that doesnt happen i know ill love it anyways.

    canot wait for friday, you’re doing an amazing job. keep it up!

    • Thank you so much! Yes, I LOVE Bad Girls and was going through a phase of rewatching the entire series when I started this legacy, so putting Cassie in prison was a nice way of linking my BG and Sims3 obsessions πŸ˜€ G Wing is obviously a homage to the show, and I made Alicia based slightly on Shell Dockley and Kym on Nikki Wade. Nearly called the prison Larkhall too, but decided not to go that far! Thanks for noticing! Are you a fan of the show?

      Thanks for reading, I’m really pleased you’re enjoying the story! πŸ™‚ And thank you for commenting!

      • I think it’s Ivy too!lol. Loved it miss, and thought there mighta been some inspiration in there from bad girls! I used to love the show!lol. Can’t wait for the next chapter! By the way i’m sure you don’t really want to know lol, but I did indeed pass my 2nd year of uni soo… roll on 3rd year!llol. πŸ™‚ xx

      • Of course I want to know! Congratulations πŸ™‚ And good luck for next year too! The real work starts now, haha!
        Thanks for reading! I’m really pleased you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ Cheers!!

  2. Haha thanks :), I know ha, i’m really dreading it since I don’t know what i’m gonna do after lol. What are you doing now since you finished your degree? And your welcome, your legacies really are a pleasure to read! x

    • I’m playing the Sims and writing a blog about it :p I’m not doing anything else much yet! Not sure what I want to do, haha. And thank you again! πŸ™‚

  3. Oooooooh fine… you’ve convinced me. You are a kind and sweet author who wants only the best for both her characters and her readers. I’m just thrilled that Cassie’s actually happy, and who knows (other than you), maybe she will find her little girl and they can really be a big happy family.

    Another wonderfully written chapter, I wasn’t confused at all by the timeline the way you presented it and it was great to have the surprise of “oh! a baby!” as opposed to “look she’s all knocked up.” I think I like this way better πŸ˜€

    • I’m pleased you’ve come round to my way of thinking! :p Sian knows best!!
      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and you followed the timeline alright! I do panic sometimes, haha. I’ll definitely do another chapter in this style soon, in that case πŸ™‚
      Thank you for reading!! πŸ™‚

  4. O: I have a feeling Ivy didn’t turn out too well after being shuffled around in the system her whole life…

    Another great chapter! On to the next! I’m not going to sleep until 5 or 6 this morning, I just know it.

  5. Awesome chapter! I’m very happy that everything is finally looking up for Cassie! I’m glad that she found true happiness with Matt and I must say that little Tristan is just adorable! It’s nice to have more of Maria and see Sue again. And as for Ivy…. well she didn’t turn out too well and I can only hope that she won’t end up in prison like her mother! It’s sad to think that she’s on the wrong path but it is good to finally have some news on how she’s doing! And she’s still in the Valley, I think πŸ˜€ That raises the hopes of finding her now!

    Fantastic chapter, as always I’ve really enjoyed this! Great work on the legacy and now I’m off to read the next chapter πŸ˜€

  6. My plan was just to silent read until the end, but Aww!

    β€˜Mumma… I waiteded for you…’

    Best. Line. Forever. An audible ‘Aww’ came out of my mouth, and tears pinches my eyes. It was so amazing. Honestly, I’ve seen the chapter page so I know Ivy’s the heiress, but I can’t wait to see what happens!
