Pages 166-169 Summary

When he tired of looking over the contents in the triangular room, he departed, without burning the room or destroying anything. "I had put out the candles and locked the door of the room and that of the courtyard without doing anything. Another fire would not have done any good." (Chapter 10, pg. 166). The narrator does not finish the story of Mustafa Sa'eed. When he walked out of the room, he left Mustafa Sa'eed and Hosna behind him.

He feels that he has to do something, so he went to the river to swim. He decides to swim to the Northern shore. He was half way across when he couldn't go any further and was caught in the current. He makes the decision to live, fights his way to the surface, and calls for help. This is how the book ends.
