Throughout friendships, sacrifices will be made, such as it did for Amir and Hassan. There is conflict between the friendship because of how they treat each other such as, "He knew I had betrayed him and yet he was rescuing me once again, maybe for the last time. I wasn't worthy of this sacrifice; I was a liar, a cheat, and a thief." (Ch. 9) Even though Amir didn't treat Hassan how he should have been treated, Hassan was always loyal to Amir and their friendship. A major issue that occurred was when Amir accused Hassan of stealing his watch even though he hadn't. This issue has much significance to the story because it allows Amir to realize how Hassan will show his loyalty and honor towards their friendship such as, "Then I understood: This was Hassan's final sacrifice for me." No matter how badly Hassan was treated by Amir he knew that he would never betray their friendship.
