He was helpless as he needed the kite as trophy for his father, to prove that he is ‘Baba’s perfect son’. Amir is further instigated by his guilt and greed to hide the watch under Hassan’s pillow, thus stealing the truth from him. Shadows and darkness are once again used in this scene to emulate the shift from the innocent friendship Amir had with Hassan to the guilt and shame that he bears as he walks in the shadows with his head low, as though in shame. As he moves towards the quarters, he glances towards the sides. Amir’s particular body language shows that he wants this deed to be seen by no one.

This is where—hanging here from this gallows…” (Wiesel, 65) Eliezer’s struggle for identity is shown again in the above quote.
