The Kite Runner: A Short Story

Good Essays
The whole glade was even more silent than usual. It was so weird. Normally all of the gladers would sit by the fire, talk and laugh and joke about their day. They would eat and drink a little bit but tonight everything was different. Thomas – the new greenie – ran into the maze to help one of the runners – Minho – to get Alby who was stung out of the maze. But he was too late. The doors closed just a second after the greenie entered the maze. They were dead and everybody knew it.

Nobody thought that anyone of these three would come out of the maze alive but on the next day Thomas, Minho and Alby were there. They were alive and (Y/N) couldn't believe it. No one had survived one night in the maze but these three. They did it. “Come on. Alby

I need to get some herbs from Fry, okay?”, Clint said and (Y/N) nodded. “Of course.” She looked over to the Leader and sighed. He wasn't getting better and when he woke up they had to banish him. She didn't know if she could do this again. The girl put the wash cloth on to Albys forehead and hoped that it would help. At least a little bit.
“Could you help me out?” (Y/N) turned around when she heard that oh so familiar voice. “Gally”, she smiled and stood up. Sometimes she thought that she was the only one who actually liked the builder. She knew that he could be harsh and sometimes even a little grumpy but she knew that he had a good heart and wanted the best for everyone here in the glade. He put a lot of effort in building them new shelters and beds and even if he didn't show it, he cared about every single Glader.
“Oh my god, what did you do?” The builders hand was covered in blood but Gally just shrugged. “It's not that bad. I slipped with the saw and... well.” (Y/N) sighed and put the Glader on one of the chairs. “You need to be more careful. Your job is dangerous Gal.” She got some bandages and disinfectant and turned around. After she disinfected the wound, she put some of the bandages around his hand and looked up. “What's wrong?” Her voice was soft and calm. She sensed that something wasn't alright.

    The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini's powerhouse debut novel, was recommended to me by a friend whose literary tastes I'd never previously had the opportunity to compare with my own.

The novel is currently a bestseller, and is hailed as the first Afghan novel written in English. I liked The Kite Runner enough to read it through twice. It was a gripping read the first time around. It held…
