Red String of Fate (RagSan) – Chapter 20

We are almost at the end of the story now. Just the epilogue left after this. Thanks for all your support through this journey – Azure

*************

Ragini brushed the hair off his forehead, as he was lying the the hospital bed, as she waited for him to regain consciousness. When he made a slight move, she became alert and moved towards him. He slowly opened his eyes after what felt like long minutes. Ragini was waiting holding her breath, as he did.

He looked at her for a second before saying “Hey” in a raspy voice.

She responded with a soft “Hey” herself. She was let out a shuddered breath, as she moved closer to him.

She was aware that his throat must be dry. He would need some water and she would rush to get it. She also knew she needed to fetch the doctor, but for a minute, just one minute, she wanted to look into his eyes and drown away the images of the past day when Ranveer rushed him to the hospital unconscious and injured.

“Missed me so much” Sanskar said, trying to joke

“You are an idiot!” Ragini told him plainly, not really feeling the strength to find her anger just then

She tried to pull her hand away from his, to get him some water, but he held it in his, wrapped his fingers around her palm.

“Don’t go” he told her, his voice still hoarse

“I was just going to get you some water” Ragini explained, signaling the bottle of water and glass that was on a side table.

“Are you mad at me?” he asked, still not letting go of her hand

“Not yet. But I will be, eventually” she told him. He raised his eyebrows at her comment “Right now I am too exhausted worrying about you, praying that you would be okay, feeling relieved that you were not going to be in danger, to get around to being angry. But I will. I am just waiting for you to get completely well.” she explained, even as her voice cracked a bit

“I am not going to be forgiven easily, am I?” he asked with a soft smile, running his thumb over the back of her hand.

Ragini shook her head. Sanskar smiled looking at her childlike expression.

“What am I going to have to do to get your forgiveness?” he asked

“I haven’t gotten around to thinking about that yet, but you can bet it will be a long list considering the stunt that you pulled” she told him, a bit of the annoyance making its way through now, now that he was okay.

“I didn’t realize I had such high maintenance wife” he said with a bright smile, which stood out considering how pale he looked just then. Some of the bruises on his face had turned purple now and his chest was completely bandaged to restrict his movement, and help him in healing. But the reality was that he was no real medicine to help him heal faster, it was going to be a slow process over next 6 weeks at least, if what the doctor has said was true.

“Don’t try to talk much” Ragini told him “It might hurt your ribs and your mouth must be parched. Let me get you some water” she told him.

Sanskar nodded gently and let go of her hand. She was back in her caring and worrying mode. He liked that about her. No, he loved that about her. He loved it when she babied him. He would hate it if anyone else did it, but when she did it, he felt pampered and loved.

Ragini got him a glass of water and raised his bed so that it would be easier for him to drink it. After she had put the glass away, Sanskar held her hand again.

“I was really scared when you agreed to come there and reached the farmhouse” Sanskar admitted to her, drawing her hand closer to his lips and kissing her knuckles

“Do you know how scared I was when I heard your screams” Ragini said, sniffing in the end as she remembered the moment

“I am sorry for putting you through that” Sanskar told her, kissing her hand again “I don’t know what I would have done if you had reached there”

“Ranveer bhai and his guards ambushed that, that slimy person’s guards” Ragini said scrunching her face in disgust “when they got there. Mom was with me. I was worried I was putting her life in danger as well as yours” she said revealing the guilt she was feeling in addition to the fear.

“I know you must have been stressed thinking about both of us and it sure as hell wasn’t safe, but I am glad she was with you. I am glad you weren’t alone” Sanskar admitted “Does it make me a bad son?” he asked

“If you are bad, I am right there with you. I was the one who didn’t stop her from coming” Ragini assured him

Sanskar tried to move to hug her and reassure her, but the movement made pain shoot through his chest. He fell back, with a moan.

“Don’t move” Ragini said worried “Wait, I will call the doctor” she said, trying to move away, but Sanskar held on to her hand. She let him recover his breath a bit, running her fingers gently through his hair, hoping to sooth him through the motion a bit.

Sanskar’s breath returned back to normal as the pain reduced, after couple of minutes.

“Is it hurting a lot?” Ragini asked concerned, her eye moistening a bit seeing him in the state.

“I am better” Sanskar said softly, but Ragini didn’t look convinced. To lighten the mood and make her feel better, he said “You know there is a way you can make me feel better”

“How?” she asked genuinely

“You can kiss me and make it better” Sanskar said with a cheeky smile

“Sanskar!” Ragini said feeling scandalized “How can you think about that at a moment like this? You are not well”

“What has that got to do with kissing?” Sanskar told her as a teasing smile played his lips “My lips are completely fine. You can check it, if you like” he said raising his eyebrows suggestively

“Sanskar, we are in a hospital!” Ragini said with an amused smile of her own

“So?” Sanskar asked nonchalantly “Don’t make excuses. If you don’t want to kiss me, say so” he said with a pout

“Sanskar!” Ragini uttered now laughing at his antics

He made pretend angry faces at her which made her giggle.

“Okay!” Ragini said, moving closer to him

“Huh! You are saying that as though you are doing me a favor” he said still pretending to be upset

“Sanskar” Ragini said closing the gap between them “Shut up!” as she kissed him gently.

Sanskar wasn’t having any of that and wrapped an arm around her waist with the other running through her hair and pulled her into a deep kiss.

“Ahem” someone coughed loudly behind them, clearing their throat.

Ragini moved away from Sanskar and turned around to find Ranveer standing by the door. She felt deeply embarrassed at having been caught by her brother. “I will go find the doctors and let them know that Sanskar is awake” she said before trying to rush away.

Ranveer held her hand as she passed by “Laddo, I have been protecting you from all of your mishaps so far” he whispered conspiringly “But if it had been someone else from the family who had walked in right now, you would have been in deep trouble”

“Bhai!” she moaned, because of his teasing, before pulling her hand away from his and running out of the room.

Ranveer looked over at Sanskar. Sanskar met his look firmly, despite feeling a bit embarrassed himself. Ranveer raised his eyebrow at Sanskar, but didn’t say much as he came at sat next to the bed.

“You look better” he commented after sitting quietly for a while.

Sanskar raised his eyebrow, giving himself a look, before turning back to Ranveer “Really?” he asked sarcastically

“Well better than how I found you” Ranveer said shrugging his shoulder

Sanskar nodded “So what happened afterwards?” he asked

“Let’s just say Kaka took care of Aditya” Ranveer told him

“What does that really mean? You say that a lot but I can never be sure what you mean. Is he dead?” Sanskar asked

“Not entirely” Ranveer said making a face

“What do you mean not entirely. Either someone is dead or they are are not” Sanskar asked confused

Ranveer sighed “You really want to know?” he asked. Sanskar nodded in response “Fine” Ranveer said “I wasn’t there with Kaka myself” he said before he continued “Sundar, Laddo’s other bodyguard was with Kaka. He wanted to help take care of Aditya considering he had the hit put out of Laddo. Sundar cares for her a lot and he thought of Raghu Kaka as his own father” he explained “He and some of the other guards beat the hell out of Aditya, but just then Sheila Raheja got there. She begged Kaka to spare her son. Kaka was in no mood, according to Sundar, but she kept on saying that it was all for her sister and niece and that they were really worried about what would happen if Ranveer took over. She fell on his feet”

“And Shekhar Gadodia believed her?” Sanskar asked confused

“I am not entirely sure, but he agreed to spare Aditya’s life” Ranveer told him

‘What?” Sanskar shot, trying to sit up, but falling back in the bed after pain shot through him

“Easy there” Ranveer said, helping Sanskar lay down in the bed

“I cannot believe Shekhar Gadodia forgave his daughter’s killer. All our effort, all my pain was for waste” Sanskar said angrily

“Not exactly” Ranveer told him

“What do you mean not exactly?” Sanskar asked annoyed

“Kaka said that he would keep Aditya alive, but in the next instance he shot Aditya” Ranveer told him “Fired two shots in the spinal cord” he explained “Aditya is alive but on ventilator. Even if he recoveres, he is going to be paralyzed for life. He is a vegetable now”

Sanskar let go a sigh of relief. True no human should have such life, but then Aditya wasn’t really human in his eyes. And he had the right, he felt, to be a bit vindictive after what the snake was planning to do to his Ragini.

“Can I ask you something?” Sanskar asked after they had been quiet for a while

“Since when do you ask permission before throwing a question at me?” Ranveer asked, looking amused

Sanskar rolled his eyes, before he got serious “Aditya said something when I was held captive” he said

Ranveer sighed “You mean about Adarsh and I eating into the business, right?” he asked

Sanskar nodded

“Do you remember you asked me why I joined this business?” Ranveer asked him, receiving a nod in response “I guess I can tell you a bit about it today” Ranveer admitted.

Sanskar’s eyes widened, he hadn’t truly expected answers when he has asked it, considering that Ranveer had never given his reasons to Ragini despite her asking numerous times.

“Remember I told you once that in this business, friends are temporary and enemies are permanent” Ranveer said looking seriously at Sanskar, who gave a small nod. “The only way to protect the family in the long run, is to ensure that you have someone in the family taking over the leadership from the previous generation.” He explained “Why do you think that Adarsh joined the business?” he asked

Sanskar’s looked surprised. He hadn’t really thought about it. He and Adarsh always had separate views about the business, he never delved much into them and try to understand them. He always felt the need to run away as far as he could, from everything that was related to the business “How do you know that?” he asked

“Adarsh and I may not be best friends, but we did study together in the same college during engineering. We didn’t hang out together, but we always understood what was facing us. We must have spoken only a handful of times, but we quickly realized we had at least some views that were similar” he explained “Just because the families have been in a proxy war doesn’t mean everyone in the family was enemies with each other”

“So you and Adarsh bhaiyaa joined to protect the family?” Sanskar asked trying to confirm

“Something like that” Ranveer said “We didn’t want our siblings involved if we could help it. In my case, that was never even a thought that I would have entertained” he explained “In this business, there have been only two ways to hand over power, one is that someone snatches it from you by killing you and your family. And the other, is that you find your successor and hand the power and the mantle over to him”

Sanskar looked at him intently, but didn’t interrupt him

“First one would have been dangerous for the family and the second one would have meant leaving in the fear of someone new who held no guarantees that they would keep the family out of it” Ranveer continued explained “We thought of a third way. It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t going to be quick, in fact it was going to be very very slow. It came with a lot of risks, because if it came out in the open, our own nexus partners would want to take us out” he said

“What are you talking about?” Sanskar asked feeling both confused and worried for Adarsh and Ranveer

“I am talking about slowly reducing the illegal component of the business and letting the legal component take over. It meant, creating subtle barriers and hindrances to carrying out the deal in a cheaper but illegal way, so that the only way left was the legal way” he explained

“What do you mean?” Sanskar asked

“I am talking about the one odd leak of land mafia story that ensure the deal wouldn’t go through the illegal way because of press limelight. That one odd change in legal procedures which on the face of it didn’t mean much, but when you do to it, made it necessary to reduce the black money component of the deal” Ranveer explained

“But if Aditya knew about it, wouldn’t others be aware of it? You could be in danger” Sanskar said worried

“Aditya knew about it because Kaka was aware of it. I am sure that is how it got out” Ranveer said sighing “Sometimes it’s better if Kaka doesn’t know anything, but Dadaji wanted him to be aware. I knew it was a risk, since he is likely to open up to them”

“You mean the family was aware of what you were doing?” Sanskar asked confused

“Not everyone in the family is. Only dadaji and Kaka were supposed to know. They weren’t happy about it, but yes they were aware. I couldn’t have been able to pull it off if they found out later. I am not sure about your family. Adarsh and I didn’t exactly speak about it much. We were doing it our own way, it was just that our ways matched so it was easy to identify what was going on” Ranveer explained

“I cannot believe it” Sanskar said as he tried to assimilate what was being said to him. He was still in shock.

“Why do you think Adarsh is holding back on starting a family?” Ranveer asked “He wants to get to a certain level and be sure of this, before he brings a child into this world where he might be expected to take on the mantle”

“Oh!” Sanskar uttered shocked, even as he looked at Ranveer. Ranveer could read the question in his eyes. Sanskar wanted to know about Ranveer in this scenario

“I had the same view as Adarsh, but Maa pushed me to get married. Then Aditi came into my life and changed everything. She wanted a child of our own, I couldn’t deny her that and we had Ashu. And Ashu wanted a sibling, so the new baby” Ranveer explained

“He is focused on babies” Sanskar admitted, with a smile

“He is” Ranveer admitted with a smile “But Aditi and I are done after this baby” he said with a twinkle of mischief in his eyes “If Ashu wants any more babies after this, I am going to direct him to Laddo and to you”

Sanskar eyes widened as he felt put on the spot and felt a bit embarrassed

“You know Ashu came to me last month telling me that his Kaka didn’t know where babies came from” Ranveer said with teasing smile “Going by what I walked in on, I can safely tell him that his Kaka knows everything now” as he chuckled

Sanskar felt embarrassed to the extent that he was left blushing now “Keep him away from us for a while” Sanskar said finally “May be you can direct him to Adarsh bhaiyaa instead”

“May be I should” Ranveer said, as they both had a good laugh over it.

Ranveer left him alone when the doctors came over to check him. After they were done, Ragini walked in. She was blushing a bit. Sanskar was sure it was Ranveer’s doing.

Sanskar caressed her cheeks a bit, before asking teasingly “So what is the reason for the blush?”

Ragini shook her head but didn’t answer, even though her blush increased after being caught.

“Ranveer disturbed us earlier” Sanskar said with a mischievous smile “What about continuing where we left off?” he said, intent on making her blush even more, which she did. He loved to see the blush on her cheeks

“Sanskar!” she said lightly patting him on the shoulder, careful not to hurt him

“What!” Sanskar said pretending to be hurt “You don’t want me to get well”

“Sanskar” Ragini said softly hearing him, feeling bad thinking she had hurt him

“If you want me to get well, then I need my kiss. Actually kisses” Sanskar said puckering his lips

“Sanskar! I don’t want to be caught by someone else in the family” Ragini said shyly

“They lock the door” Sanskar told her, suggestively raising his eyebrows. Ragini widened her eyes, but complied, walking back over to him

“Can we stay here, locked away from the family?” Sanskar asked mischievously

“Sanskar!” Ragini said trying to reprimand him, but he pulled her into a deep kiss before she could say anything else.

  9. Nupur

    Simply a soothing chapter…Loved it to my heart’s core just like all the other chapters. Glad to know ‘all is well’ now…RagSan convo was very beautifully written, but today Ranveer was too good, loved his efforts of changing things in the big bad world and really respect him for that.Never expected Shekhar to take such a step…even though Ashu wasn’t in the scene, but the slightest mention of his name makes the whole scene so vibrant and lively:):):) All in all a truly blissful epi…will be eagerly waiting 4 d epilogue…

    If it would have been in my hand, I wouldn’t have let u end it so soon,my be 100 episodes, because seriously I fell in love with this ff and your stupendous writing skills more and more as the story advanced…but I respect ur decision of keeping the essence of the story and ending it…but do come back with another one soon, be it any couple I don’t care, I ll definitely enjoy reading ur stories always:):):)
    Can’t wait as I know another mysterious thriller might already be cooking in ur tricky head!!!

    How r u? Hope u r doing great and have a nice day:):):) And look out for ants…Why??? Bcos u r so sweet that they might attack u;););)
    Lots of love and big big big Giant Panda hugs…LOL:):):)

    • azure

      big big panda and polar bear hug to you dear…..v happy that it was soothing 🙂 yup all is well…so happy u loved their convo…and ranveer too. shekhar can be vicious when he wants to be. he is part of the world after all. he wasnt willing to spare them easily. haha ashu is too good na…wish he could have been there…but he would have been scared and sad seeing his kaka like that so don’t think he would be allowed to.

      i am so so so so glad u loved my writing so much. glad u understand why i need to end it at the right time. but yes i will come back with another ragsan for sure. but after a break…work is slightly busier right now…

      i am good….how is your partying going on? celebration still happening or back to studying for entrance exams? hahaha u are sweet too….v v sweet dear…lots of love

      • Nupur

        He he he…polar bear hugs…oh no! I’m freezing now???

        No party at all…actually I hate parties, even I don’t celebrate my b’day too in a grand way…u know just a treat from my parents will do?
        And don’t get me started on my horrendous entrance exams…m longingly waiting for them to wrap up..can’t tolerate them now anymore?

        Oh lots of work! But don’t drown urself in them too much. Do take a moment of respite from them and take care of ur health?

        Keep smiling and lots of love?

      • azure

        lots of love to you too dear! and remember to take some rest yourself too…dont stress so much

  10. Joy

    • azure

  11. anonymous

    ok……..I don’t know where to start from…………I think u have nothing left to express.u nailed in expressing each n every emotion in a way that a reader can actually experience/visualise them………..Well basically i am a huge raglak fan.but I even read a few ragsan ff’s ( i don’t want to miss anything in which ragini has got importance u know……..may sound a lil bit crazy….but i have to admit it…..lol)………………Usually i just skim the ff’s let it b raglak/ragsan…….as i don’t have much time………..to b frank i did the same in ur ff also…………..but in one of the episodes which involves sanky and aditya’s convo……………i commented as anonymous asking how come swara can b aditya’s sister…………..well i got an immediate response from u saying that episode 3 will clarify my doubt.Immediately i went back to epi3 and started reading with at most care not to let any piece of information skip from my notice………….really i read that epi with at most care……..which involuntarily made me read the following episodes………..It was then when i realised that ur ff needs close reading (in my case) for a better understanding……U know what ……………….when i did it for second time………it covered many of my doubts which Imthought them to covered in upcoming episodes…………….It may sound a lil bit crazy..but this is the tuth…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. Now i want some clarifications regarding the story…………….
    .1)swara is adi’s sister..in that case ragini is also adi’s sister(relation’s wise).how can aditya’s intentions be so bad towards ragini……….when he knew the fact?
    2)swara and aditya planned to cover what was going on in U.K meanwhile….while involving laksh who just thought it to be a prank played on his brother……..(plz tell me was i correct in this point?)
    3)ragini was attacked just because it was thought that Ranveer might take over the business….(I want clarification in this point also)
    …………………………………..****************************………………………………………………………….Now i really enjoyed reading this ff……(second time)…………wait………my comment haven’t finished yet……………
    first of all I liked ragini’s and ranveer’s bonding……i think ranveer didn’t let her feel her father’s absence……..in his case ragini is a lot more fortunate
    Ragini’s behaviour with elders depects janki maa’s upbringing and ragini’s responsibility of not to let her mother feel downward by any chance through her actions……….
    On top of all…….SANKY…………..even though he is not interested in his family business the way he figured out all happenings in his own way(with the help of ranveer) in case of ragini’s
    attack…………….and just to confirm laksh’s involvement and for a solid proof against aditya he risked his life,the way he was worried for ragini……,The way he likes to make ragini blush…….Everything was awesome and well described….u know what don’t think that i am being selfish but plz do come back with another ff………………Hope u didn’t get bored of my comment……………………….bye.take care.looking forward for another ff from you
    last but not the least

      thanks so so sooooooooooooooooo much for taking the effort to write this wonderful comment. yes this one was a mystery along with romance, so each scene had a meaning in the final solution. but i am glad u liked it when u did the second read…thanks so much for taking so much effort and liking the story so much ….biggggg hug to you!

      now about your questions –
      1) swara is adi’s masi’s daughter hence his sister. but who is ragini really. she is the daughter of his massa with a woman whose would have himself left. it is almost like ragini is a distance cousin of swara from her dad’s side and adi is her close cousin from her mom’s side. plus swara/adi don’t share any connection with ragini..just like she and ranveer don’t with them
      2) correct
      3)ragini was attacked for 3 reasons – 1 – it would hurt ranveer and hopefully weaken him enough to take him away from the business (remember they don’t know him well) 2 – to feed it into shekhar’s mind that someone really wants to hurt him and attack him hence attack on both his daughters 3 – make it all about someone outside the family attacking the family. someone as in maheshwaris.

      you are right…they have amazing bond. she didnt miss her father the only thing about her father’s behaviour that hurt her was his treatment of her mother and referring to her by someone else’s name. in a way making it clear who he loved and thinks of. yes in this everyone’s behaviour and personality is a result of their upbringing and their environment.

      snaky’s investigation was more focused on logic and psychology than in-depth understanding of the business. he knows only little and he used that info to advantage.

      thanks so much u liked how he cares about her and how much he is worried…glad u liked the descriptions….big big hug for putting so much effort in the story and observing all these nuances….lots of love dear……

    Oh dii l was not present in this site for few days and you reached epilogue. This chap was 2 2 2 cute and it is really embarrassing when you are caught cuddling. But truly speaking l couldn’t understand last chap much. First bcoz l lost interest in that one as l read this chap first and then it was too complicated. Will be grateful if you tell it in short. ? ?

    • azure

      thanks so much dear….glad u liked it…and he caught them kissing which was worse ;)don’t worry nothing much happened in the last one. ragini is safe and laksh knows the truth about his best friend.

    • azure

      i missed ur comments too. hope your nephew is better now. take care. and no sorries dear. it is completely okay.

  23. Ashrita

    I missed ur ff a lot dear and when I am back to read I was super shocked that the ff is ending…. from yesterday I was reading all the missed episodes in a go………. I can’t stop myself from telling that you are an amazing writer with beautiful thoughts….. Ragsan romance ????was amazing….. Ranveer’s character is the one which impressed a lot…. Every sister would like to have a brother like him….

    1. Swara didn’t even think once she is harming her sister though she is half…. How could she face her father if the truth comes out if she is alive???? Is Sekhar so mean that he even doesn’t care if something had really happened with Ragini……..???

    2. Does Sharmishta knows about the plan? Is she hiding all these from Sekhar!!!!???

    3. Aditya told that none of them had a plan to get Swara married to Sanskar… I didn’t get that point… is it so that Swara was just doing time pass with Sanskar!!!!!

    4. Sekhar don’t have any right to punish Aditya as his daughter himself was involved in the plan, he should feel pity on himself for his upbringing and even now won’t he question his wife???

    5. I loved this Ranveer…. he is just like my brother who can do anything for his sister’s happiness……. I never felt that they are cousins…..very protective…???

    You rocked it dear but i am not able to digest that u r ending the ff…. Hope you would come again with another heart touching ff…. Missed cutie Ashu….. I am eagerly waiting for the epilogue ???….With Loads of good wishes… take care ☺☺☺

      hey…good to have u back. thanks so so much for liking the story so far. big hug to you dear. swara has never met ragini. she has no connection to her. she is as good as a stranger. and it is usually easier to hurt someone you don’t know than if you know them. shekhar even if he is polite to ragini has never been attached to her. janki was the reason he couldnt marry shomi and he was forced to have ragini in a way. he doesnt quite like that or can forget that. sharmistha would have known what swara knew. sheila did say she did it for her sister and niece. shekhar knows that now after hearing what was said. but remember he would think that sheila took them for a ride and fooled them for his own purpose….which is partly true. she was avoiding sanskar for long remember…he had to woo her a lot before she agreed. if he was the enemy family and she knew that (even if he didnt) why did she agree….remember he said they were together only for a short while…why only for short while….they were setting the stage for this. remember sanskar said this involved some planning. shekhar feels his daughter was filled and misguided. which is partly true. she was pulled into the plot by aditya and sheila because they wanted to get ahead. remember shobha had a tough life. her daughters don’t want that. they are insecure and willing to do anything to hold their positions. ranveer and ragini and no one else growing up but each other.

      thanks so much dear. take care and lots of love
