It was a rainy day and big grey clouds were moving from the right to the left and the other way round, dancing on the music the wind sang. BUT, altough it was such a horrible weather outside, in one house there was just joy and excitment.
Yes, in Lisa's home everybody was preparing for a huge party because it was a magical day. Lisa was turning 13 years old today and she was very proud. She had planned everything so that this day will never be forgotten, by her or by anyone else...at least until her next anniversary. She had decorated her house with big colourfull banners saying "Happy Birthday!" and in each room there were about 100 balloons; her mother had ordered food from the best caterer in the town and her grandmother had baked a delicious two-layer cake. And of course, the hole class was invited to Lisa's so that they could sing and dance till the morning of the next day.
The morning passed away quickly and six o'clock was approaching fast. Soon the guests started arriving and the living room filled with teenagers in no time. Lisa sure had a lot of friends... and they all brought big gifts packed carefully in coloured paper.
Well, here started the strange part of the party. You see, Lisa was a very curious girl and she died to find out what she had recived from her colleagues. But her mother wouldn't let her approach the big table full of presents and she kept saying that it is polite to wait for the guests to leave before you open your gifts.
And so, while everyone was laughing and dancing and screaming Lisa wasn't in the middle of them as she was supposed to be. She tried to get to the table from the right, from the left and from every direction. But her mother guarded the presents like a vultur.
The time passed quickly and soon all guests left. Then Lisa realised that there wasn't anyone left to have fun with her and that her curiosity ruined her night. "Don't you want your presents now?" her mother asked. "No!" said Lisa crying.

Walt Disney quotes
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

“The first and simplest emotion which we discover in the human mind, is curiosity”
