Bella is back in Pleasantview. Will Mortimer still have her? Does she still want him? Will love truly conquer all? Let's see shall we?

Bella is back in Pleasantview. Will Mortimer still have her? Does she still want him? Will love truly conquer all? Let's see shall we? I am Mortimer Goth and this is my wife Bella. I remember that day with much fondness. It seems like a lifetime ago. Bella adored Cassandra. I think Cassandra gave meaning to Bella's life. More than I could. I was busy working and maintaining our family fortune. Then one day Alex arrived. Cassandra and Bella both doted on him. My spoiled prince. He really is adorable. As Cassandra grew she became involved with the town gigolo. I can't stand him. Bella and I both agreed that he needed to go. He simply wasn't good enough for our Cassandra. Shortly after that decision had been made, Bella disappeared. I phoned the police but she vanished without a trace. No one ever saw or heard from her again. I miss her terribly. I have done my best to care for our children without her. Somehow, I feel I have failed. Years have passed and I am an old man. I couldn't convince Cassandra to leave Don. He is a horrible womanizer and she refuses to see it. What am I to do? Oh Bella... where are you? I'm fully grown now and capable of making my own decisions. I want Don for my husband. He is such a loving man. I could never find anyone with as much love and caring to share. He is wonderful and perfect for me. I have absolutely no intention of wedding her! There is no way I am going to limit myself to one woman. I can't believe I even showed up for this farce. What the heck was I thinking? I'm Alexander Goth. My sister is doing something stupid today. I can't believe she is going to marry that nasty guy. He doesn't even love her. He stares at every pretty girl that goes by. Loser. There is my daughter with her face plastered to that man. What can I do? This is what has lead to this. A lovely wedding arch in MY backyard. I had to pay for it, and I can't stand the man. If she marry's him I will have to make sure he never gets hold of her fortune. What is she thinking? Has she lost her mind? I also had to pay the caterer. To be honest, I hope Don Lothario vanishes. Just like Bella. Never to be heard from again. Arrrgh! There they are acting worse than children! I really hate that man. Maybe I could buy him off. NO, Cassandra would hate me for the rest of my life. Now, they're sharing a meal before the nuptials. I can't stand it. This is killing me. I want to make an appointment for him with the Grim Reaper. Nina Caliente, that's me. Don and I have been having an affair for months. I wouldn't miss this for the world! Let the fireworks begin. Don is so hot. Why is he even with her? She is so dowdy. A plain Jane if there ever was one. Don, I think it's time for your wedding present. I want to give it to you before the ceremony. Why don't you come upstairs with me?
Sure Cassandra. Let's go. ( Man, how am I going to get out of this? ) I can't wait!
I love you so much Don. We'll live happily ever after, you'll see.
Of course, Cassandra. ( YES! I got what I wanted from her. Another notch on my bedpost. )
I can't believe you just did that! How could you? On our WEDDING DAY!!! You want to kiss Nina? Go ahead! Take five and have at! You are a guest in my home and decide to insult my daughter. I have a few words for you! ( Thank You ) I haven't fought in years! Feels good! Yahoo! Go Nina! There you go old man. A lesson learned. I'm outta here. I did what needed to be done. Thank you Dad. I appreciate your effort to defend my honor. You're the best. It's been a few weeks but I can't stop thinking about him. I thought I had found the one. I wish Mom was here. Oh! Excuse me Dad! Gotta go! NO! This can't be true. It was one time! I'm not am I? Ohhhhhh...... either I have a serious case of the flu or I'm pregnant. How can I tell my Father? He will be so disappointed. I really wish Mom was here. Mom! Where are you? I need you.... ( crying ) Bella.... my Bella. What should I do? If you were here you could make it all better. You always did. I still love you after all these years. I don't know why but I feel drawn to this house. I wish I could remember. I feel like I have been here before. A long time ago. I know this house is mine. Why do I know that? I BELONG here. Oh my gosh! I remember! Mortimer! My Mortimer. The love of my life. What happened to my children? Where are Cassandra and Alexander? I have to see my family! I wonder if they are still here. It's been so long. Bella? Bella is that you?! Bella! You've come back! You're actually here! Mortimer! You are here! I lost you for so long. So very long. You got old! Oh Bella. I'm just grateful I got to see you before time runs out for me. I love you. I love you too Mortimer. It must have been you that drew me back here. We have so much time to make up for. Mortimer kissed me and I was home. Home. A wonderful place to finally be. Mortimer? Are the kids in there? Cassandra? Alexander? Yes! Of course. I just want to give you something first. I have saved this for you all these years. It was the only thing found when you disappeared. I want you to have it back. I love you. Thank you Mortimer. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for not forgetting. After years had passed and time for Bella seemed to have frozen, they were reunited at last. An everlasting love that knows no bounds. Timeless.
