A piece recommended to me via my Suggestion Box over on Patreon ( https://www.patreon.com/satsumalord ).
People were apparently curious to see what Chelsea would look like in her later years, so here she is at somewhere around her late 40s to early 50s (maybe 48-49); and as you can see, she's certainly grown as a person (both metaphorically and literally). X3
She's still not quite as big as her (now at this time) stepmom, Tilly, who's still "donkier" than her by a few inches; but she's okay with that. She's not quite as obsessed with being the absolute biggest, as she was back in her younger days; now, she's just satisfied to have "blossomed" into the mature, yet beautiful, woman she is today (er... in the future).
Besides, she's got other things to keep her distracted nowadays, like doting over her twin girls, as well as cherishing her handsome husband; and of course, running her own small chain of hair & fur salons. =p
And before anyone asks, no, this isn't a "time skip" or meant to be a permanent change or anything; this is just me exploring what some of my characters would be like, "later down the road", as it were. We'll see if this ends up as a whole new series or anything, but I don't consider it to be super likely (though I've been wrong before on such matters).
Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you all enjoy the piece. :)
