What does the future hold for the next generation of the Goths? Can things only get better? Or worse?

What does the future hold for the next generation of the Goths? Can things only get better? Or worse? A baby boy was born,after careful consideration Gunther and Cornelia finally settled on a name,well,actually Gunther did,they decided to name him Mortimer,"Why that name?"Cornelia asked"Why not?"Gunther replied just as quickly"I think it's unique".Secretly the name was an homage to Lolita,who came up with it first,but he coulden't tell Cornelia that,in fact,on their wedding night the new Mrs.Goth insisted that all old photographs of him and Lolita be stashed in the attic,out of sight,out of mind,she assumed. Mortimer soon grew into a happy and healthy toddler,he had his mother's eerie silvery grey eyes,and,some would say,that he looked EXACTLY like his mother.Everyone gushed about how adorable he was,as his father held him Cornelia said,"I can't believe how beautiful he is,and to think,he came into this world under such controversial circumstances"."I know,but I coulden't imagine life without him".Gunther said,smiling.He may have been slowly warming up to his marriage,but there was one thing he was starting to feel nervous about,his job demanded so much of him,and he was terrified that he was going to be an absentee parent like his very own father. Gunther was spending so much time at college,he had snagged an important promotion naming him the college dean of students,he was the youngest ever,and as a result he fought a lot of temptation on campus,mainly attractive young coeds looking to capture his attention.Over the next few years he changed his appearance,he grew his hair out long,ditched the makeup(which long weirded out his father)Mortimer wasn't a quiet baby,he started showing behavioral problems,mainly,he woulden't stop crying,and Cornelia was at her wit's end about it. During this time Gunther could barely keep his own emotions in check,maybe it was the stress of constant work,but him and Cornelia were starting to drift further and further apart.He missed Lolita terribly still,and it seemed like nothing could soothe his pain,it seemed like as he watched his child grow he became more depressed."That should have been her little boy".Gunther used to think bitterly In fact,he would often spend the entire night with Lolita in the backyard,much to the chagrin of Cornelia,who was starting to remind him of his own mother as each year passed."She's dead and buried Gunther Goth,I think it's time for you to move on,or at least,deal with things in a more mature manner".She remarked coldly one day "I'm afraid your first love is unforgettable".Gunther said to her As both mommy and daddy seemed to be growing further and further apart young Mortimer somehow grew into a happy,healthy little boy.He loved insects,nature,and well,tombstones and cemetaries,in fact his favorite pastime was to collect butterflies by Lolita's grave,where they gathered due to the sweet scent of the daisies planted there.Even as a child,he exhibited a dark and macabre side,which didn't seem to concern his parents or grandparents too much. Meanwhile,on the other side of town a lovely little girl named Bella Bachelor was just about to grow up,her parents were Simis and Jocosta Bachelor,Simis worked for the local newspaper and Jocosta was a housewife,she had one older brother,Micheal,who seemed just like Mr.All American. On her very first day of school Bella brought home that little boy named Mortimer,they had so much in common and she instantly developed a strong case of puppy love.He became all she spoke about.They had started to spend practically every waking moment with each other,either in person,on the phone,or online,it became obsessive,even as a little girl she loved him.He had dazzled her with his intelligence and charm,she knew that he was special. He also intrigued her with ghost stories,he told her all the time that his house was haunted,and that for some reason most of the activity was in his bedroom."Once I was even woke up out of a dead sleep by the lamp floating in the air".Mortimer said with a creepy little grin on his face"My mother never see any of this,only me and daddy,isn't that weird?""Ewwww,creepy!"Bela said,giggling"I always knew your house looked scary and haunted". "I know what the ghost looks like".Mortimer went on"I saw her floating upstairs,she's bright red,grandpa Victor told me that a maid died in a kitchen fire when he still lived there with grandma".He then paused and said,"But my dad always gets really upset when she shows up,he'll cry and sometimes sleep downstairs,she must have been an important maid". The recent haunting activity wasn't the only thing playing heavily on Gunther's mind,recently he had decided to hire a secretary,a very beautiful woman about his own age named Hannah Bell.She had recently gone through a tough divorce and was looking to start over,they spent many hours together,doing seemingly mundane,work related things,Cornelia wasn't sure if she trusted her. Of course she had heard the rumors about the TRUE nature of the relationship,but she tried her best to tune them out,Hannah put a smile on his face and was his best friend,he reassured her on a daily basis.He did go to her house a few times a week after work,he told Cornelia,but only to tutor her,she was enrolled in night school after all. Things between them did begin innocently enough,but they both gave in to temptation....... Their friendship quickly turned into a passionate affair,they fell deeply in love with one another,but unlike most other cheating spouses Gunther never told her that he was going to divorce his wife,in fact,Hannah knew about Cornelia,and Mortimer.Part of her felt terrible for being in love with a married man,but the other part just coulden't tear herself away from his arms,there was something irrestible about Gunther,something she refused to part with. Shortly before Mortimer grew into a teenager Cornelia got the news that she was pregnant with child no.2...... Hannah also found out the same news........
