Bella loves telling stories and tells stories all the time, often when she should be doing other things. She tells stories during lunch, during lessons, when her brother is watching TV, and even when she should be brushing her teeth. One morning Bella wakes up and finds she has lost her voice and cannot tell any stories. Suddenly Bella has to listen to people and time to do things. Bella learns that it feels good to finish things and that people have interesting things to say.
