"Nora we are home." Kate said sadly, she has forgotten that Nora couldn't hear her.
Philip a young boy of 15, was waiting patiently for them at the corridor, once he saw Nora getting down and standing next to Kate, he was taken aback by her beauty and noticed there was no trace of smile in her face, then and there he swore silently to himself that he will make her smile and always be her eyes and ears.
He later told Kate once they were inside the house that he would be the one to prepare the evening meal that day, at least to welcome Nora.

With each day that passes, Nora and Philip became close.
One stormy night, Nora was trying to make out some words with her Braille book when she felt it.
She shrugged her shoulder and continued her reading, she felt it once again as if someone or something was calling out to her. She had mastered the whole house and sometimes wander around the house on her own, sometimes with Philip.
Nora got down from her bed and find herself bending down beside her bed. As if she was being controlled by something she pushed her bed to one side of the room, with her two hands she felt around the floor and her left hand caught something. Touching it carefully she noticed it was like a door handle. Nora find herself pushing it, it gave a quiet squeaked as it gave way, revealing an ancient staircase. She touched around and felt the staircase.
Nora tried to stop herself from going down but couldn't, she wanted to scream but remembered she couldn't.
Why was her body not obeying her? Did her grandmother not know about this secret door in her room when she brought the house?
So many questions ran through her mind that was left unanswered. She closes her eyes and walk down the stairs.
When she felt her feet touched the mere ground, she opened her eyes and got the shock of her life.
She could see.
She closes her eyes and opened it again, she could still see.
She tried to say something and heard her voice, she could also talk.
She turned back and look around her and saw herself in a garden, she saw the staircase she has walked on staying in the middle of the garden. She quickly climbed the staircase as soon as her feet touches the staircase on her third stride, she couldn't see nor talk.
Her body automatically turned back and she find her feet touching the ground once again.
As soon as her feet touches the ground, she could see.
She took her time and look around the garden, this time, she noticed that this wasn't a mere garden.
