Whenever he was worn-out, he used to stare at this picture and write a new story.
He had scribbled hundreds of stories by now and the picture never lacked a motivation for a new perspective.
Today, he sits at a blind school, explaining this picture and all that flow are tears, not the words!
This story is written for Sunday Photo Fiction: 06 December 2015. The task is to write a short story of 200 words or less for the supplied photograph.
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.

Short story “Extra and Ordinary” is written for the Mondays Finish the Story Challenge – June 15, 2015. The task is, given the image and starting line, to complete the story in 100 to 150 words.
At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it. It was not ordinary because it was with him all through his childhood and even when there was no one else to play around. It was not at all ordinary because it had undergone many patches and still was his favorite toy that had stayed with him from past many years. It was more than ordinary because the day since he had become orphan, this was the only memory he had representing his past. It was extra-ordinary because whenever he held it in his hands he felt the upbeat as it was his father’s first gift.
More importantly, he had not seen it all past these years and it was one of the first things he wanted to see. He had finally earned enough money for his operation. He was getting his eyes operated in hours and doctors had assured that he would be able to see.
Jon was getting his greatest birthday gift on his 50th birthday!
