RagLak – Is everything really so perfect as it seems to be?
A/N: It seemed like many of you forgot this story. Anyway, thanks to everyone who remembered me and waited for me patiently.

I sat down on the bed reminiscing Lakshya’s words. “He applied for the divorce,” I murmured as the tears rolled down my cheeks. I clenched my fist with the bedsheet inside it and shouted, “Lakshya!” “I can’t live without you, I can’t,” I said resting my head on my legs. “I wanted you to realise your mistakes Lakshya. I never thought you’d seriously apply for the divorce. I can’t think of a day staying away from you even after what you did. Whatever you did was just due to a misunderstanding but, I know my Lakshya,” I murmured crying. I suddenly lifted my head and said, “Where is Lakshya? I hope he doesn’t do anything himself.” I wiped my tears and ran downstairs.
I came to the hall and saw Maa reading a magazine. “Maa, where is Lakshya?” I asked. Maa looked up from the magazine and said, “I saw him going out. But I don’t know where he went. Why? What happened?” “Nothing,” I replied and rushed out of the house. I got inside the car and quickly drove away.
It was 10 at night and I still wasn’t able to find Lakshya. “Lakshya, where are you?” I murmured driving faster when suddenly; someone came in front of the car. I hurriedly stopped the car as the person fell down on the road. “God; Another problem,” I remarked getting down from the car. I went closer to the person and seeing the person whispered, “Lakshya?” I kneeled down and sat next to him. I patted his cheek and said, “Lakshya?” “Rag . . Ragi . .Ragini,” he uttered with great difficulty. “Yes Lakshya. See your Ragini is here, right next to you,” I replied placing my hand on his cheek. He held on to my hand and said, “Don . .
Don’t leave me.” “Never,” I replied. I stood up and forwarding my hand said, “Give me your hand.” He moved his hand in the air and said, “Please bring my Ragini.” I understood he was drunk while the tears rolled down my cheeks. I kneeled down again and said, “Lakshya, your Ragini is here. Come, let’s go back.” I made him stand with great difficulty and giving him support walked over to the car. I opened the door and sat him on the passenger’s seat. I drove back home as Lakshya kept murmuring, “Ragini, please don’t leave me. You’re mine. Please give me another chance to rectify my mistakes.” I looked at his face as the tears kept on rolling down my cheeks continuously. “You’re responsible for his condition,” I remarked blaming myself. We reached home around midnight.
We entered inside and found it completely empty. We both went upstairs while I supported Lakshya. I entered his room and made him lay down on the bed. I was about to go away when he held my hand and pulled me back. I fell on him as he said, “Ragini, don’t leave me.” I struggled to get up as he wrapped his arms around my waist. “I can’t go to Di’s room now. I’ll stay here for the night and then go back to the room early in the morning,” I muttered slowly. “Ragini don’t leave me,” Lakshya repeated. I kissed his forehead and he relaxed. I rested my head on his chest replied, “Never.” He tightened his grip around my waist as if he never wanted me to go away. I smiled and soon both of us fell asleep.

A/N: I know most of you didn’t want RagLak to unite so soon, but personally I feel that Lakshya can’t do anything, but repent. He does realise his mistake and that’s what Ragini always wished for. Moreover, love isn’t about bringing your ego in between. It’s about accepting your loved one’s faults and flaws, isn’t it? Surely, Lakshya was very cruel toward Ragini, but Ragini did love him right from the beginning and she has forgiven Lakshya for it. Moreover, Lakshya isn’t really the person whom I’d portrayed in the few chapters in the beginning. He’s what I’d portrayed in the latter segments. Anyway, try dropping down your views about the acceptance whether you’re happy about it or sad!
