This question calls for your opinion. In my opinion, George and Lennie are two men that uncharacteristically travel together for unknown reasons. The reader wonders what the tie is between the two men, usually an arrangement we'd believe was tied to family. The boss also questions their arrangment, but forother reasons.... he seems to believe that Geirge is taking advantage of Lennie in some way. The reader already understands that this is not a correct assumption.
