I ran because I was a coward. I was afraid of Assef and what he would do to me. I was afraid of getting hurt. That's what I told myself as I turned my back to the alley, to Hassan. That's what I made myself believe.
我有在想为什么书名叫做追风筝的人。想了想，也许是因为书是以追风筝结尾的，也是因为追风筝在作者自己的生命中有特别的意义。在我回头看到这一句的时候我好像看到了一个更大的重点。书是以一句“I ran”结尾的，和这里的“I ran”相呼应。A quarter of century ago, he ran, he ran opposed to the last fallen kite, afraid of getting hurt by Assef; and quarter of century later, he ran, he ran toward the kite, despite it is with a swarm of kids.
