EVENTS AFTER THE FIRST TURNING POINT:
- Amir barely sees Hassan
- Hassan is withdrawn and sleeps a lot
- Amir and Baba’s relationship is better
HOW DO THINGS CHANGE?
“It shouldn’t have felt this way. Baba and I were finally friends… except now that I had it, I felt as empty as this unkempt pool I was dangling my legs into”
He feels empty because he doesn’t have a real relationship with anyone. He also let down the one person that cared about him the most which is Hassan. It is haunting Amir that he didn’t help Hassan but instead left him and now everything reminds him of Hassan.
