Chapter Fourteen opens in June of 2001, when Amir received a call from Rahim Khan. He told Amir he was very sick and asked him to come visit him in Pakistan. Amir considered what Rahim Khan had said before hanging up, "Come. There is a way to be good again." Suddenly, Amir understood that Rahim Khan knew about his guilt over Hassan that has haunted him. Amir knew that now was the time to make amends. It is a major turning point in the story.
