Now with the next chapter
Ragini was standing in the middle of the living room of the Maheshwari Mansion and all the family members were standing around her.
Everyone was more than happy seeing her back in the house after an year. Their happiness was doubled when they saw the Junior Maheshwari in her arms.
Swara was the first one who moved towards her little sister. How much she missed her Ragini. She went and cupped Ragini’s face with one hand.
Swara: How are you Ragini? And how could you just leave like that? Why didn’t you ever come back? You have no idea how much I waited for you?
Ap came towards her and placed one hand on Ragini’s head and with the other hand caressed Ridaan’s face.
Ap: Where did you go beta? In such an important phase of your life when you needed all our support you were all alone. Why didn’t you come back beta?
Sujata: Haan chori. We would have taken really good care of you and your baby. Aur. What is the name of this little chora?
Laksh moved towards Ragini and stood exactly behind her and placed his hands below hers holding Ridaan.
Laksh: Ridaan. Our baby’s name is Ridaan. Nice name na Chachi.
Sujata: Haan chore. Very nice name.
Ragini removed Laksh’s hands and turned to him.
Ragini: Enough. Please stop all this. I
have had enough of all this. And what
have you all been talking? And what are
you all talking? Why are you talking like I went from here on my wish? If all of you
have forgotten, then I would like to remind
you that I didn’t go away from this house
on my will. I was given a very tough choice. And I chose my self respect. There wasn’t even one person who trusted me that day. And now…..
Bas. I came here only because Shivansh wanted me to stay here. And once this project gets completed I will go away from this house and this place. Till then please stay away from me and my son.
She turned back and climbed the stairs when she was stopped by a voice.
Laksh: Even the last time you wanted to go away from this house,away from me. But fate always tied our lives together. And now I won’t allow you to go. Not from this house. Not from my life.
Ragini climbed the stairs and went towards the guest room that was assigned to her.She passed through her and Laksh’s room and all the old memories became fresh.
-Laksh back hugging her and asking “Kya hua mera bacha?”
She setting his collar before leaving for office.
She feeding him the rasgulla.-
She immediately walked away and went to the guest room. Laksh who came behind her smiled seeing that she was still affected by his memories.
Everyone was sitting at the dining table having the dinner. Ragini was feeding Ridaan milk with a baby sipper walking around the hall.
Ap: Ragini beta you come and have your
dinner. I will manage Ridaan.
Ragini: No. I mean I will manage Ridaan. You please have your dinner.
Shiv: Ragini Ap aunty is right. You come and have your dinner. Today I will deal with your laadla.
Ragini smiled and gave Ridaan to Shivansh. She came and was about to sit on the chair that was previously occupied by Shiv beside Uttara. But Swara who was serving the food intentionally dropped curry on the chair.
Swara: I am sorry Ragini. Why don’t you go and sit next to Laksh? I will get this chair cleaned.
Ragini glared at Swara. She went and sat next to Laksh who winked at her. Ragini widened her eyes.
Swara came to serve Ragini and bent near her and told very slowly.
Swara: Ragini I have made your favorite paratha. Chalo na. Taste and tell me how it is.
Ragini: No. Thank you. But I would like to eat dal chawal.
Saying so she started eating. Laksh leaned towards her and whispered.
Laksh: Paratha is very tasty. But I must say that you make them much better. So make sure that very soon you cook my favorite dal baati. I missed your food a lot.
Ragini continued eating ignoring his words.
Ragini was moving in the room holding Ridaan in her arms. She was trying to make him sleep. But he was a bit more cranky owing that Ragini didn’t feed him that night. She made him sleep in the middle of the bed. And she kept pillows on either sides of Ridaan.
Ragini: I need to bring some water. Or else it might be a problem in the night.
Saying so she went to the kitchen with a bottle. And at the same time Laksh who had been hiding outside the room at a corner till then came inside the room.
He went towards the bed and took Ridaan in his arms.
Laksh: Ale mera bacha. My bacha is troubling Mumma a lot. Hmm. Just like me. Even I used to trouble your mumma a lot. Everyday morning I used to shout her name over and over for small things and she used to come running to me.
Chalo now everyday Mumma must be singing Lori to you na, today Papa will make you sleep.
Saying so he started singing slowly.
Ek bhawla sa sapna
Ek bhawla sa sapna
He suddenly heard steps of footsteps and placed Ridaan on the bed and he hid behind a curtain.
Ragini entered the room and placed the bottle on the nightstand.
She sat on the bed beside Ridaan. And she took Ridaan into her arms. She slowly lulled him to sleep and placed him on the bed. And slowly she also drifted to sleep.
Laksh peeked out to see Ragini and Ridaan sleeping. He walked up to the bed and leaned beside Ragini near the bed. He caressed her hair and kissed her forehead.
Laksh: I love you Ragini. I really really really love you.
He moved to the door but turned back and blew a flying kiss to his love
