Tariq and Laila discuss the changes back home: The Taliban has been chased out by coalition forces, and an interim president, Hamid Karzai, has been appointed. Laila realizes that she misses Kabul. She hears about life returning to normal, and feels that her life in Pakistan is inconsequential. She is reminded of Hakim's words that Afghanistan will need her and her mother's words about seeing peace in Afghanistan to honor Ahmad and Noor.
