After a few brief but sweet days of romance, Tariq visits Laila with heartbreaking news: he and his  family are fleeing Kabul. He tells Laila that his father's health requires them to leave, but that he'll  come back the minute he can to find her. Furious, Laila starts hitting Tariq, but soon her anger  transforms into desire and the two make love. Afterward, Laila is torn between feeling joyful and ashamed. Her shame is diminished by Tariq's  admission of love and his plea for her to join him and his family and to marry him immediately.  Although tempted, Laila has her own familial obligations; she knows that if she left, it would break  her father's heart. Finally, Laila forces Tariq to leave and leans against the door, listening to him  plead with her until he finally gives up and walks back to his house.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
