What's a quote from "A Thousand Splendid Suns" that state that Mariam and Laila are friends?
There true love for one another is illustrated best after Mariam has killed Rasheed. She decides that the only way for Laila to be free is to accept responsibility for Rasheed's death herself. Laila wants Mariam to try and escape with her, but Mariam realizes they will not escape from the Taliban authorities together.
"We'll take care of each other," Laila said, choking on her words, her eyes wet with tears... "I'll take care of you for a change."
... Laila crawled to her and again put her head on Mariam's lap...
... All she could do was roll herself up and bury her face one last time in the welcoming warmth of Mariam's lap.
Just before her execution, Mariam thought again about Laila.
... she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian.
