    From a Poor Girl to a Rich Girl: An Heiress BNG, Pt. 2

    Go here for part 1: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...ress-BNG-Pt.-1

    Use this dice to play: http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/reso...s/dice/six.htm

    You are now 16 years old. You have yet to make contact with (BIOLOGICAL GRANDMOTHER), out of fear of rejection, or tell your mom, (MOTHER'S NAME), you know where her biological mother is, even as she begins to topple over the edge. Work and school keep you distracted from your problems at home, but it doesn't last for very long.

    What happens?
    1: Your mom, who has been secretly drinking on the job, gets into a massive car accident on her way home from work on a Wednesday night. Three people are killed and one his hospitalized. She is arrested and sentenced to twenty years in prison.
    2: On a Saturday afternoon, your mom goes out to a bar with some friends. At around five o'clock, they're kicked out of the bar by the owner for disorderly conduct. Out of all of them, your mom is completely wasted. As she's going out the door, she trips and falls down the stairs, breaking her neck. She dies on the way to the hospital.
    3: Make your own scenario.
    4: You come home from work on a Thursday night to find your mother passed out on the couch. Nothing new, except she's not breathing. You call an ambulance and your mom is brought to the hospital. She died of alcohol poisoning.
    5: Your mom comes home from who knows where really, really late on a Monday night. You were up all night, worried out of your mind. She stumbles into the kitchen, drunk as usual, and you blow up at her. The two of you get into a fight which ends with you getting a concussion and your neighbor calling the cops after being woken up by yours and your mom's screams.
    6: Choose from the scenarios above.

    After your mom dies/is arrested, the state throws you into foster care. With no other family to take you in, you're put into a group home along with other teenagers ranging from thirteen to seventeen. But maybe you're not alone...You write a letter to (GRANDMOTHER), telling her who you are, who your mother is, how you found her, and explain that you're writing to her to ask for her help. What else do you have to lose anyway? You send the letter.

    It's been (ROLL THE DICE THEN ADD 2) months since you wrote the letter and you've heard nothing from your grandmother. You've lost all faith in ever meeting her. But on a Sunday morning, while you're in the kitchen doing your chore of washing the breakfast dishes, Mrs. Thompson, the house mother, comes in. She informs you that, after you're done with the dishes, you are to go upstairs to your bedroom and pack your belongings. Your grandmother is here to take you home with her.

    You quickly finish with the dishes, then run to your room and pack your bags with shaking hands. You meet Mrs. Thompson and your grandmother, a petite, nicely dressed woman in her mid-sixties, down in the front hall. When she sees you, your grandmother smiles and even hugs you, saying you're even prettier than she pictured.

    What does your grandmother look like?
    1: Black hair & blue eyes
    2: Dark blond hair & green eyes
    3: Light brown hair & brown eyes
    4: Salt-and-pepper hair & hazel eyes
    5: Blond hair & gray eyes
    6: Red hair & dark brown eyes

    On the way back to your grandmother's home in (CITY), she asks you all sorts of questions: how old are you, what grade are you in, what do you like to do, etc. It takes a while for you to work up the nerve, but eventually you ask the big question: why did she put your mom up for adoption? (GRANDMOTHER) explains that she was only 18 when she began having an affair with your grandfather and was 19 when she had your mother. Her parents were more ashamed of having a daughter become pregnant out of wedlock than her having a romance with a married man. They convinced her it was best for her and the baby if she left her daughter to be raised by (GRANDFATHER'S NAME) and his wife, (HER NAME), a married couple than by an unwed single mother. Her parents forbid her from ever telling anyone, even her husband and their daughters. It wasn't until she received your letter did she finally come clean with them. Once they assured her everything would be fine, and she went through the proper legal procedures, (GRANDMOTHER) came down to (WHERE YOU LIVED) to take custody of you. You couldn't be happier that she did.

    When you arrive at your grandmother's big, gorgeous house, your two aunts and cousins are there waiting to greet you with open arms and a party.

    Your name is Ruby Jocelyn Price and you are 15 years old. You're pretty, smart, thoughtful, compassionate, hardworking, and you love to help those in need. You live with your single mom (your father walked out when you were 4 years old) in a low-income area of a big city. The day you turn fifteen, you apply for your first job and you're accepted. What you make is not much, but your mom needs help making ends meet with her job as a waitress. Juggling work and school doesn't leave you a lot of time for socialization, not that it really matters to you. You don't have a whole lot of friends and your mom has a drinking problem, and you're too embarrassed by that to have people over at your house.

    What do you look like?

    Where do you get your first job?
    2: Target

    A few months after you start your first job, your grandmother, Bonnie Frances Lewis, dies at age 76 of cancer. Since your grandfather, Douglas Kenneth Lewis died 5 years before, you haven't seen much of your mother's relatives, including your grandmother, who was not a very nice lady. Despite this, your mom still drags you to her funeral, hoping you might inherit some money from her death. The old bat wasn't rich, but she had more money than you and your mom put together.

    Turns out, your grandmother did not leave you a single penny--she's not even your grandmother at all! Attached to her will is a letter addressed to you and your mom from your grandmother. In the letter, Bonnie, explains that after only seven years of marriage and three children, Douglas had an affair with a much younger woman that went on for a year before she became pregnant--with your mother. The young woman was forced to give her baby to her former lover and his wife to raise as their own and they were paid off by her family to keep quiet about the affair and the adoption.

    This news absolutely devastates your mother so much that she locks herself up in her bedroom and does not come out for literally two days. As for you, honestly, you're a little relieved--you never liked Bonnie, but you are extremely curious to find out what happened to your REAL grandmother. When you ask your mom about finding her, her only response is breaking down into tears. You decide to take matters into your own hands.

    Through city hall, you manage to get a hold of your mother's birth certificate and adoption records. But the name of the birth mother is too faded for you to make out. Your next step is to test out your reporting skills by tracking down and interviewing your grandparents' long-time neighbors. But since most of them are over 70 and their memories, and hearing, aren't as good as it use to be, it's difficult. Until you meet Mrs. Jones, a 65-year-old woman who lived next door to your grandparents for most of her life. She tells you that there were rumors that your grandpa was having an affair, but it was never made public until your adoptive grandmother announced it in her will. You ask Mrs. Jones if she has any idea what the other woman's name was--and hold your breath. She says yes, she remembers the girl's name!!!

    Anna Hazel Wright

    You're bouncing off the walls with excitement, but you keep it to yourself for almost a whole year. You save whatever money you can from the twenty hours a week that you work until you have enough to hire a private investigator. With the name you have, as well as additional information, he is able to track down your grandmother. A week after you turn sixteen, he gets back to you: he found her! She lives in a different state, where she moved to after she graduated high school, was married but has been widowed for over 3 years, had two daughters, and has retired from a successful career as an industrialist, mainly focusing now on charities and philanthropy.

    Where does she live?
    4: Rochester, New York

    Now what do you do? You have no idea! It's been over thirty years and this woman has yet to acknowledge you and your mother as her family. What if she doesn't want you? Can you live with the fact that you have family somewhere and they don't know you even exist? You're not sure if you're brave enough to take that chance.

    You are now 16 years old. You have yet to make contact with Anna, out of fear of rejection, or tell your mom, Sarah, you know where her biological mother is, even as she begins to topple over the edge. Work and school keep you distracted from your problems at home, but it doesn't last for very long.

    What happens?
    5: Your mom comes home from who knows where really, really late on a Monday night. You were up all night, worried out of your mind. She stumbles into the kitchen, drunk as usual, and you blow up at her. The two of you get into a fight which ends with you getting a concussion and your neighbor calling the cops after being woken up by yours and your mom's screams.

    After your mom dies/is arrested, the state throws you into foster care. With no other family to take you in, you're put into a group home along with other teenagers ranging from thirteen to seventeen. But maybe you're not alone...You write a letter to Anna, telling her who you are, who your mother is, how you found her, and explain that you're writing to her to ask for her help. What else do you have to lose anyway? You send the letter.

    It's been 8 months since you wrote the letter and you've heard nothing from your grandmother. You've lost all faith in ever meeting her. But on a Sunday morning, while you're in the kitchen doing your chore of washing the breakfast dishes, Mrs. Thompson, the house mother, comes in. She informs you that, after you're done with the dishes, you are to go upstairs to your bedroom and pack your belongings. Your grandmother is here to take you home with her.
