Billy and Nilly had grew up together since childhood. Most of the people who saw them used to ask “Are they twins? They look so much alike!” But they weren’t. Both of them were adopted by the landlord on the same day from two different places. He had taken care of them as their own children with all the greater goods and care.
Nilly used to follow Billy everywhere. May be it was the scent that kept them together always. They had this sort of unsaid connection. It was pleasant to see them doing things together. They kind of had this trust, which one would notice very evidently.
No one could ever even guess that Nilly was blind and Billy was deaf.
