All of us were in shock and couldn't believe what had just happened. Mother suggested we start to clean up so that's what we did. Me and mother ached and moved slowly. When the room look kind of normal and was clean again we spread out the quilts and went to sleep. Every time they heard a noise they thought it was father or the Taliban soldiers coming back. In the morning mother and Parvana went to the prison to try and get father out but they got beaten.
They were going to dig up bones, they went to a blown up graveyard where a man pays for how many pounds of bones kids could dig up. They had made so much money, in fact even more money then they had made in the last 3 days, after there first trip to the bone broker they went back to digging for the rest of the day. They weren't going to tell their families what they had done when they got home. They didn't want there families to be suspicious so they handed over there regular amount of money and a little extra.
