Amir Frames Hassan

Amir Frames Hassan

Storyboard Text

  • I waited in my room for Ali to clear the breakfast table in the kitchen. Waited for him to do the dishes, wipe the counters.
  • 
  • I looked out my bedroom window and waited until Ali and Hassan went grocery shopping to the bazaar, pushing the empty wheelbarrows in front of them.
  • Then I took a couple of the envelopes of cash from the pile of gifts and my watch,
  • ...and tiptoed out. I paused before Baba's study and listened in. He'd been in there all morning, making phone calls. He was talking to someone now, about a shipment of rugs due to arrive next week.
  • I went downstairs, crossed the yard, and entered Ali and Hassan's quarters by the loquat tree. I lifted Hassan's mattress and planted my new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under it.
  • I waited another thirty minutes. Then I knocked on Baba's door and told what I hoped would be the last in a long line of shameful lies.
