Historic tells of the 'past' (before).

Similarly present and contemporary. So why not B and C ?

Successor: A person who follows next in order (AFTER).

Predecessor: one who precedes you in time (BEFORE).

(as you holding a position).

Successor: a pesson or thing that succeeds another.
Predessor: a thing that has been followed or replaced by another.

That means Succesor comes AFTER predessor and Predessor comes BEFORE successor.

Hence I feel this is the closest relationship with After:Before.

Why d? I feel present and past has the closest relationship rather than successor:predecessor!
