Red String of Fate (RagSan) – Chapter 18

Hi all, I am back with the next chapter. I hope you enjoy this. Thanks – Azure


Durgaprasad, Ramprasad and Adarsh were sequestered to the study as they worked out a solution.

Adarsh looked at Durgaprasad “I cannot get through to Ranveer. He is not picking up the phone”

“We need to inform Deendayal ji in that case” Ramprasad said grimly

“Deendayal ji” Adardh asked concerned “But wont that cause more panic. How will they react?” he asked

“They are family now and it is a matter for them to know about as much as us. Ragini is their daughter and Sanskar their son-in-law” Ramprasad explained, looking at his elder brother Durgaprasad for approval Durgaprasad nodded.

“Okay” Adarsh said looking between them “I will call him”

“No” Durgaprasad told him “I will call him and inform him. You focus on getting them back safe”

“There is no one at Raheja farmhouse. They cannot be there for sure” Adarsh said

“The trace on Sanskar and Laksh’s phone ended at that farmhouse though” Ramprasad said “So they must have been kept somewhere close to that place, even if not there. I don’t think Aditya would call them there, and make them travel too far to get to where he is”

“But we have no idea where that place could be. It could be any farmhouse closely, may be his family friends. It could be some of those abandoned houses, the vacation homes of those NRIs which are empty more of the year” Adarsh recited “Where do we start? We don’t have much time. Ragini and Chachi have left sometime back”

“We need to find a way to get to them before they reach the farmhouse” Durgaprasad told him “Get the bodyguards to drive over there in full speed if needed. Are there any guards at our farmhouse? They could get to the place sooner” Durgaprasad said

“None at the farmhouse right now. We had them all called back on alert in case we found out where Aditya was” Adarsh said apologetically

“Bhaisa, may be Deendayal ji has some guards out there” Ramprasad suggested “There house is closer to the farmhouse area as well, if nothing else, they can send the guards over to intercept Ragini and Sujata much faster than our guards can get to them”

Durgaprasad nodded “I will call him now. You keep get our guards to go after them and keep trying to see if you can get through to Ranveer. He is a sensible guy. We need him working with us right now” he told Ramprasad and Adarsh. They nodded and got to work.

Sanskar took a few deep breaths, working out what he wanted to do next and how he wanted to proceed. He needed to rush, but equally, he knew that he had no room for error.

Aditya had ordered one of the guards to make a drink for him and was busy enjoying it.

Sanskar eyes him for a minute before casually saying “You have been building a small army of guards”

Aditya looked at him but didn’t answer

Sanskar tried again “It must have taken a lot of effort to build this away from the eyes of Maheswaris and Gadodias”

“I don’t need to do anything away from their eyes” Aditya shot at him, before adding “You are forgetting that we, Rahejas, are a big name in the construction world too”

“By big, you mean a distance fifth, isn’t it?” Sanskar said sarcastically

Aditya’s jaw clenched “Shut your mouth! You have no knowledge of the business. Don’t poke your nose in it”

“Truth hurts, doesn’t it” Sanskar said ignoring the warning

“I said shut up” Aditya warned him again

Sanskar shrugged his shoulders casually, or as casually as he could despite the pain shotting through his chest and ribs “Besides, you, through your Shekhar uncle should know that the reason for Maheshwari and Gadodia armies has very little to do with construction business” he said calmly

Aditya watched him closely but didn’t react

“Building a tiny army under their nose is easy” Sanskar said firmly “But there is no way you Rahejas can improve your ranking in the construction business”

“I don’t need your inputs on what we, Rahejas, can and cannot do” Aditya told him firmly

“I am sure you don’t” Sanskar told him calmly “After all everyone knows how strong the nexus is. And you cannot improve the ranks without getting an in-road into the nexus contacts”

Aditya glared at him

Sanskar continued, watching him all the while, as he said “But then you know that already don’t you? If anyone outside the nexus tries to turn the nexus contact their way, the rest of the people in the nexus will act quickly. Why just the nexus, Maheshwaris and Gadodias themselves will take care of any threat even before it has the chance of becoming a threat”

“Why are you telling me this?” Aditya asked

“Why not?” Sanskar said calmly “It is not as though Rahejas or any of the other construction houses, aren’t aware of this. It is almost an unstated fact. Maheshwaris at least would destroy anyone trying to pose even the smallest challenge”

“You are thinking too highly of the Maheshwaris” Aditya commented with a smirk

“Why not? We are the biggest out there along with Gadodias. The mighty ones” Sanskar told him proudly

Aditya snorted “Mighty! Now that is funny”

“Not as funny as dangerous” Sanskar commented

“Ohh! I am scared!” Aditya said pretending to be scared “Your mighty ones couldn’t even protect you from my trap”

“Oh! But you are forgetting something” Sanskar told him “They will destroy you if something happens to me”

“Destroy me!” he said with a laugh “They won’t even be able to track it back to me”

“You are underestimating the Maheshwaris and the Gadodias” Sanskar said with a smile “You are going to pay for it”

“The only one who is going to pay here is you” Aditya said firmly “And the mighty Maheshwaris and Gadodias are not as mighty as you think. Your brother and Ranveer are making sure they are eating the empire inside”

Though the comment came a surprise to Sanskar, he quickly covered his expression “And despite that Rahejas are nowhere in the scene when it comes to Maheshwaris and Gadodias”

“Not for long” Aditya told him firmly

“Actually now more so than ever” Sanskar told him with a smile “After all, now they are together in the game”

“You have a lot of delusions in your head” Aditya told him mockingly “Don’t worry, I will take great pleasure in curing you of them”

“They aren’t as bad as the delusion of Rahejas being anybody in this business” Sanskar threw at him

“Keep the Rahejas out of this” Aditya warned him

“Why? Worried that the truth will upset your delusions” Sanskar said with a smirk

Aditya threw his glass towards where Sanskar sat. The glass shattered against the wall, breaking into pieces. Sanskar blinked for a second, but calmed himself down immediately

“Watch your mouth” Aditya told him with a menacing look on this face “Don’t make this harder for yourself, than it is already going to me”

“I don’t think you are going to make it easy for me anyway” Sanskar told him calmly “Besides, it is not as though I am saying anything new here”

“I am warning you. Keep away from my family” Aditya told him “It would be better if you look into your own family first. They are a dying clan”

“And yet your sister wanted to be part of my family, part of that clan. She wanted to marry me” Sanskar told him

Aditya snorted “You really are delusional, aren’t you?”

“I guess your aunt and mother are delusions as well then” Sanskar said

“You bastard!” Aditya made to walk towards him, jumping off the side table he was sitting on

“They were the ones who told me that Swara wanted to marry me and they couldn’t wait for the alliance to happen” Sanskar said, looking critically in Aditya’s eyes

Aditya stopped midway and laughed “And you believed them?” he asked mockingly

“Why?” Sanskar asked putting on an innocent expression

“There was no way in hell that Swara would have married a Maheshwari and even more so one who had renounced the money of his family and was trying to make a living on his own” Aditya told him in a tone that you would explain to a misguided and mistaken child

“Your aunt and mother though otherwise” Sanskar said calmly

“They lied” Aditya said with a sneer “They knew Swara would never marry a working man”

“I guess your uncle was unaware of his own daughter’s thoughts in that case” Sanskar told him “because he sure as hell thought that his daughter wanted to marry me”

“There is a lot that Shekhar uncle doesn’t know” Aditya clarified

“I don’t believe you. I think Swara really wanted to marry me” Sanskar said confidently

“You are an idiot and she thought so as well” Aditya said “Why would she ever agree to marry the enemy’s son?”

“For love” Sanskar told him

Aditya burst out into laughter “You really are not meant for this world. I didn’t believe it when Swara told me. Now I do” he said, before leaning forward and conspiringly adding “The only thing my sister loved was money and power”

“The same things as you then” Sanskar said titling his head

“Of course! I am not ashamed of admitting it” Aditya told him with a laugh

“Except you don’t have either” Sanskar commented

Aditya lost his smile “Watch your tongue”

“I thought you were all for clearing delusions” Sanskar told him with a raised eyebrow “The truth is that you are nothing more than an executioner, are you?”

Aditya’s jaw clenched, as did his fist “Don’t make me get rid of you before the fin begins”

“Sacred of facing the truth?” Sanskar asked “You are just the executioner of plans, aren’t you? And pretty pathetic one at that”

Aditya walked over to him and swiftly kicked him on the side. Sanskar kneeled forward a bit. Despite knowing and expecting it to happen at some point, the pain and thrashing that he had already borne had made him weak. It took him a while to regain his breath again.

“Keep your opinion to yourself if you want to live” Aditya told him

Sanskar smiled at him through the tears in his eyes from the kick “But you are going to kill me, aren’t you?”

Aditya sneered “I was wrong. You are not that dumb after all” he said

“But I was right about you. You are bad at execution. Really really bad” Sanskar said

Aditya’s jaw clenched. He made to move towards Sanskar again but paused for a second “I don’t want to hurt you so soon. I will watch your face when Ragini gets here and I get my way with her. Then we will talk about execution”

“You will fail even then” Sanskar threw at him “Just like all your plans do. You failed last time as well didn’t you” he said with a smirk

“What do you mean?” Aditya asked, narrowing his eyes

“Don’t you know what I mean?” Sanskar asked with a raised eyebrow

Aditya’s first clenched again

“You wanted to create an opening for Rahejas, and you ended up destroying any chance for them, forever” Sanskar said, letting out a laugh, coughing a bit as his ribs hurt badly from the attempt to laugh.

“You single handedly destroyed any chance for Rahejas. What is worse, you strengthened Maheshwaris and Gadodias” Sanskar said shaking his head “You couldn’t have been any bad at execution than that” Sanskar continued prodding him even more “Oh Boy! You couldn’t handle a simple task as that and you expect to pull this one off”

“Shut up!” Aditya warned at him

“You wanted to make Maheshwaris and Gadodies fight each other over the attacks and you made them come together and become one big happy family” Sanskar told him, smiling, shaking his head

“Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!” Aditya yelled at him, before kicking him a couple of times

Sanskar doubled over in pain. Aditya pulled back a bit later, angry, tired and frustrated. He ran his fingers through his hair. Sanskar caught his breath, or pretended to catch it, as he pretended to laugh, despite the fact that the action was killing him.

“I am going to kill you a slow painful way” Aditya said with gritted teeth

“You must have been really pissed off at her” Sanskar told him “All that effort down the drain. Of course it was you who failed in the end. Couldn’t even manage your own sister.”

“Shut up! Shut up” Aditya screamed at him “She was a bl**dy idiot. Couldn’t keep things simple. Had to get into her stupid theatrics and mess it all up for me”

Sanskar rested his head against the wall, still trying to recover from the kicks. Every intake of breath, brought with it a sharp pain, almost as though a million pins were pricking him in the chest. He was sweating a bit from the exertion his body had been put through.

“Oh! but Swara was not the only one, was she?” Sanskar said with a smile “Both the people you choose, let you down, didn’t they?” Sanskar said sarcastically “You wanted to create connection back to him, but they had two-way communication between them and throwing you right in the middle of it all. You couldn’t even get that right!”

Aditya was fuming by now, angry beyond measure. He threw one of the glasses next to him at Sanskar. Luckily Sanskar managed to catch it “You bastard! Shut up! I have heard enough of this! It wasn’t my f**king fault! I handled the professional hit perfectly! They messed up!”

“Is that what it was?” a startled voice asked

Sanskar rested his head against the wall behind him, small smile playing on his lips for a second, before he looked over at the source of the voice.

Precap – is this enough? Ragini at risk?

  13. Sweety

    Superb chapter yaar and waiting for the next update. Sanskar’s every counter to adi was brilliant. Simply saying it’s excellent

    • Azure

      Thanks so much dear ….glad u liked this sanskar adi convo. Big big thanks for liking the chaoter

  14. bisha

    One more superb chappy with many revelations. So Swara is related to Aditya? Can you explain this part a bit more? I dint get how thay are cousins. And Swara is pure money n power lusty woman!! Cant imagine her as one. But you made me. Thanks for that di. And those attacks were planned by Aditya? lol. His plan ultimately backfired!! Lol. Swara only died. I loved today’s Sanskar. Suddenly he is not hasty as impulsive as he was at home. He is much cool, bearing those blows and plotting here. Prison changes many things. And Adarsh and Ranveer eating up the business? Dint get it. Hope you throw light on it latr on. OMG! I asked and told so much. You will surely be baffled. Forgive me di please but sometimes I really cant help 🙁 ;-P 😛 .

    How are you? All okay now with you? Hope you stay well strong and keep writing. You are stunningly formal in using the words. The effect of working in a public field like finance. Even the romantic words and emotions have a touch of formality and sophistication. Excellent di. Love ya loads and very eager to know the voice and the precap. ♥♥♥ Baffling you 😛 😉

    • Azure

      Thanks so much bisha….and loved that’s I had u interested and asking so many questions. Adi and Swara’s connection and background is actually explained by Adarsh in chapter 4…..remember Shobha Sharmistha and Sheila. Swara is usually my way or highway person in the show….here it is more about your upbringing and the environment around you also making who you are. And the environment of her upbringing is not the same here. Sanskar knows what is at risk now. Ragini is already on her way. He has 30mins till she gets to farmhouse and 20more to where he is. He really cannot afford to be impulsive if he wants her safe. Usually he is angry on her behalf now that is the worst thing he can do. You will know about Ranveer and Adarsh in two updates. Thanks so much dear for liking the update and my style of writting true finance has something to do with it plus me reading a lot of books by British authors

  15. Emz fasa

    Frankly speaking i am great fan of ardhika and 2nd ragsan my fav and yours ff out of the world for me
    and gauri’s manmarziyan destiny possession obsession is a great ff
    i thought you must read her ff you would love it 🙂 and sorry if i hurt you

    • azure

      i really liked ardhika before i started watching swaragini. infant i only started watching swaragini when mms stopped. initially i liked swragini because like arjun sanskar too was after revenge…i thought there were similarities. i will definitely check the story out. thanks so much for the recommendation. ardhika had the best chemistry.

  16. taiana

    Sry fr late cmt i hope ur fyn nd ur health is much better now.. as usual it’s an amazing part dear… Adi nd sanskar convo is full of suspense yaar it revealed many thing abt swara adarsh nd ranveer but still it is nt very clear it’s confusing… Nd at the end whom voice is that… full of mystery… plz post the nxt part soon dear..

    • azure

      pls no sorries….it was nice you could comment all better now. thanks so much for liking it as always…..v happy to read this. hahaha i know it seems a bit confusing right now but all will be cleared after the next part. including the owner of that voice
