"Respectfully, you can't forbid me anything, Agha Sahib, Ali said. "We don't work for you anymore." (Hosseini 107). Amir knows that their departure is mainly his doing, as Ali knows that Hassan is no longer in a secure location with Amir, who is full of guilt, shame, and unloyalty. This also shows power dynamics from Baba, who wields the power as the master of the house, to Ali, who resigns, and because of their bond, Ali is able to pull out the emotion from Baba that Amir has never seen before.
