"I watched Hassan get raped," I said to no one. Baba stirred in his sleep. Kaka Homayoun grunted. A part of me was hoping someone would wake up and hear, so I wouldn't have to live with this lie anymore. But no one woke up and in the silence that followed, I understood the nature of my new curse: I was going to get away with it." (p. 91)

This quote is from The Kite Runner; can anyone help me identify any themes/symbols/images? I also have to explain it's significance to the novel but I think I can do that once I get something identified.
