An example of metaphor in Chapter 31 can be found in the way that Mariam describes Laila's apperance in her home. Laila personality is said to be like a "creaking bedspring", as well as similar to the "splashing of water." From this we can infer that Laila is somewhat annoying to Mariam, as well as rather refreshing.
