Even more, he wanted to tell Assef that Hassan was just his servant, not a friend. By this Hosseini shows us that Amir can be friendly and kind to Hassan if he wants to, but at the same time, he can me mean and terrifying. First Amir tries to justify his thinking by saying that he is a coward and that he cannot beat them even if he tried but slowly, he starts to think that Hassan might have deserved this. “I ran because I was a coward. I was afraid of Assef and what he would do to me.
Amir still experimces feelings of cowardice but overcomes them by his guilt and the desire redemption pushed that aside to help Hassan’s son. “Baba hiring Dr.Kumar to fix Hassan’s harelip. Baba never missing Hassan’s birthday....He had wept, wept,when Ali announced he and Hassan were leaving us”(224-225). The guilt Baba lived with since Hassan’s birth forcibly put a distance between the two, or Baba’s reputation is ruined.

I would break down and cry to myself, but I would never talk about it. It all started with his being jealous. He started to be controlling, and I let him. I would say to myself, “I should’ve done this; I should’ve done that.” The first thing that I should’ve done was put my foot down when I saw things going bad. Sometimes I asked myself, “Why would I let this happen to me?” I was scared and “in love.” Well at least I thought I was, because I didn’t know what love was.

Khaled Hosseini uses symbolism and sense of mood during these situations contribute to the understanding of his literary work. Chapter seven of the novel opens somewhat normal, with two young boys, Amir and Hassan, preparing for the annual kite running tournament. When the boys win the contest, an air of jubilance and carelessness comes over Amir and Hassan. Hosseini describes the moment as “alive”, “unabashed”, and “the single greatest moment of my twelve years of life.” At this point, the reader feels happy for Amir and Hassan. Soon after, though, the whole mood changes.
Afterwards, for some time Hassan and Amir keep a distance from each other. Amir reacts indifferently because he feels ashamed, and is frustrated by Hassan's saint-like behavior. Already jealous of Baba's love for Hassan, he worries if Baba knew how bravely Hassan defended Amir's kite, and how cowardly Amir acted, that Baba's love for Hassan would grow even more. To force Hassan to leave, Amir frames him as a thief, and Hassan falsely confesses. Baba forgives him, despite the fact that, as he explained earlier, he believes that "there is no act more wretched than stealing".
