RagLak – Is everything really so perfect as it seems to be?
A/N: ???? I’m so sorry for being so late. I’d my mocks going on, then lab finals and I didn’t get any time in between. Anyway, did anyone miss me because I missed everyone out there. Anyway, without further ado, let’s start with this update.

I entered the room and found Ragini and di talking. “Can I come in?” Di and Ragini looked at me as Ragini rolled her eyes while di said, “Of course Mr. Maheshwari.” I narrowed my gaze at di as we both burst out laughing. “Come, sit here,” di said. I went and sat beside di as Ragini said, “I’ll go bring coffee for the two of you.” She got up and was about to go when di said, “Ragini, you sit. I’ll bring it.” “No, it’s okay,” replied Ragini but, di walked out of the room ignoring her. “Di,” she called out and was about to go when I held her wrist.
She turned around and said, “Leave my hand.” I nodded my head in a no and walked closer to her. She tried freeing her hand, but I tightened my grip and pulled her towards me. I softly held her hand behind her back and said, “You didn’t answer my question.” “I said no,” she replied trying to free her hand. “But your eyes say something different,” I said and pulled her closer to me. “L..Lakshya,” she called out. “Do you love me?” “No, I don’t,” she replied looking straight into my eyes. “Does it not affect you when I come closer to you?”, I asked after she lied. “No,” she replied as I pulled her even more closer making her front touch mine. “Not even now?”, I asked. “L..Lakshya,” she said. “Does it not matter to you when I’m close to you?”, I repeated myself. She pushed me away and said, “Lakshya, just be in your limits. I’ve already had enough of you and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
I walked towards her while she moved back. “Lakshya,” she said as her back touched the wall. “Lakshya, see,” she said pointing her finger at me as I moved towards her and placed my finger on her lips. “Ragini, please give me a chance,” I said. She pushed away my hand and said, “Don’t tell me that you want me to be here with you.” I lowered down my gaze and said, “What I did was wrong, but can’t I get another chance?” “Apply for the divorce. I’ll go before di and bhai’s wedding,” she replied pushing me away. “Ragini, please,” I muttered, but she walked out of the room. I clenched my fist and hit it against the wall. “Lakshya Maheshwari, you’re wrong. How could you do that to her?”, I said to myself and after sometime walked away to our room.
I was in the washroom washing my face when someone knocked the door. I quickly swiped the water from my face and opened the door. I saw Ragini standing at the doorstep. “Your coffee,” she said. I turned around and said, “Can you please keep it on the table there?” She placed the cup on the table and was about to go when someone said, ”Oh Ragini, you’re here. Actually, I wanted to talk to the two of you.” It was maa’s voice. I turned around and asked in a choked voice, “What happened?” “Actually.. what happened Lakshya? Why are your eyes so red? Did you cry?”, maa asked. I smiled and said, “Nothing. Something went into my eyes and I was constantly rubbing my eyes so, it just became red, I guess.” I looked at Ragini who was staring at me with me a surprised face. “What did you want to tell?”, I added. “Ya, I’m going to talk to Sujata ji tomorrow. We’ll decide Swara’s wedding soon,” maa said. “Maa, why so soon?”, I asked. “It’s not early at all. In fact, it’s pretty late. Anyways, I need to go downstairs. I’ll talk to both of you later,” maa said and walked out of the room.
“Did you cry?”, asked Ragini. A faint smile covered my face as I replied, “I applied for the divorce.” She looked at me with a shocked face as I walked out of the room.
