Ragini had decided to text Lakshya and spend as much time with him as possible, before she would go away from his life forever. That’s what she always thought anyway. She wanted to remember only the happy moments with Lakshya. She kept texting him as usual.Lakshya often lost his temper when it came to Ragini nowadays. Ragini was trying hard to make some good memories, she was trying hard to forget the betrayal, the heartbreak . But Swara and Lakshya were making it very hard for her to do so. Swara had made a group with all three of them as the participants. But even in the group, Lakshya and Swara would constantly flirt with each other and ignore Ragini. Ragini hoped that atleast once Lakshya would text her as he used to, but every time he texted her, it was about Swara. Swara this and Swara that , I am mad at her, she is mad at me.
And every time Ragini made him see things from a different perspective. Every time, she set things straight. Other than that, Lakshya never texted her. Even when Ragini texted him, she never got any reply instantly. There were times she would reconsider her decision of joining a different school. It was because Lakshya would text her at night. The thing is, Swara went to bed early and her phone was normally switched off at night. So, obviously Lakshya would remember his ‘Jaan’ ! His best friend ! They had many heart to heart conversations too and Ragini would often think that she had made the wrong decision.But, it all changed that day .
Ragini was alone in tuition,Aditi wasn’t there with her either. Karan came and grabbed Ragini’s hand and dragged her with him. He cornered her and asked her why she did this to him. Ragini looked at him confused. He suddenly hugged her and then kissed her cheek. He caressed her face and asked her why did she hurt him and why she chose Lakshya. Ragini was shocked and couldn’t say a word. She pushed Karan with all her force and ran from there. She panicked and called Lakshya again. Yes, AGAIN. She had called him when she was all alone but he didn’t answer. He finally answered this time and Ragini fumbled and said that Karan was here and she needed Lakshya. She needed him to talk to her. He spoke to her for quite some time, but then when Swara’s call was on hold and Ragini pleased him to not cut the call, he said in an irritated tone-“You are not letting me talk to my girlfriend yaar ! I mean what is the big deal if Karan is there ? What happened now ?” Ragini immediately cut the call and started weeping. She stopped having second thoughts about her decision at that moment.
Swara would often get annoyed at Lakshya these days. Why ? Because when Lakshya was busy telling Ragini about Swara and his fights with her. He couldn’t stop talking about Ragini. Whatever it is, he would some how find a way to bring up Ragini’s topic in his conversation with Swara. Swara was really annoyed and told Ragini about it. “I’m his girlfriend yaar ! Even if he is talking about my best friend, he is talking about some other girl. And sometimes it seems like he loves you more than me !! I don’t know yaar !” Ragini reassured her and sorted out their issues. All this while Lakshya would still end up getting mad at Ragini for stupid reasons. Ragini on one such occasion, lost her cool and told him that he was a horrible friend and couldn’t protect her from Karan. That was when Lakshya realised why Ragini had called up that day and pleaded so much. He was so angry and jealous, that he hurt himself.
He punched his hand on the wall repeatedly. In the end ofcourse Ragini forgave him and their friendship remained intact. But Ragini’s love for Lakshya never decreased. She loved him even after he gave her lot of pain. Because when he hurt her, when they fought, he was the only person she wanted to talk to. She couldn’t help but love him despite everything that happened. She told Aditi about her feelings and though Aditi thought that Ragini was being stupid, she knew exactly how Ragini felt. She had once made the mistake of not confessing her feelings, so she didn’t want that Ragini should have that burden for the rest of her life. Though they weren’t best friends, they were good friends who were there for each other. And though Aditi was proud of Ragini’s decision to stay away from them, she still wanted Lakshya to know that Swara wasn’t the one who loved him unconditionally, it was Ragini.
Soon it was the last day of school, well second last day. The farewell. Swara had worn a black dress and Lakshya had worn a black shirt and cream pant. Ahh they matched, so cute. Ragini on the other hand, wore a pink lehenga and had tied her hair in a braid. She looked beautiful. Lakshya was complimenting his love nonstop, but he didn’t even look at Ragini or that’s what she thought. Because when she got home and saw her phone, her cheeks turned red looking at Lakshya’s messages.
L- Sunn !! Aaj tu bohot hot lag rahi thi !!!
L- I mean ki you put lot of makeup !! You shouldn’t have !! You looked ugly !
L- Ahhhh !!! Yaar !! I can’t get it out of my head ! Isliye I’m criticising you now !!
L- Why did you wear that lehenga ? It was sooo revealing !! Many guys were staring at you !!
L- Including me …..okay forget I said that
L- I hate you yaar !! I really can’t get it out of my head !!!!
L- Your kamar……. hayyeeeeee …. You have such milky skin yaar …. when will I get to see you like that again !! Aaahhhh …!!!!
Ragini kept staring at his messages in shock. With great difficulty she managed to text -” Oyyy ? How many messages ?? You know what ? I thought you were having a heart attack ! ” . With that their conversation ended because Swara was texting Lakshya now. The next day was gonna be the last day of school because they were going to get their hall tickets. The next day something very unexpected happened. The whole day, instead of staring at Swara, Lakshya was staring at Ragini with a really intense expression. Ragini ignored his intense looks. While they were going home, Lakshya asked Swara to carry on and held Ragini’s hand while walking. Ragini looked at him in shock and then jerked her hand out of his hold. She turned to him and said-” What’s wrong with you ?” Lakshya looked at Ragini and asked “Do you love me ? And don’t you dare lie to me !!” Ragini just asked -” Aditi ?”. Lakshya nodded and said-“You know I hated Aditi ! Because I thought that she was stealing my best friend ! But she told me the truth !!
Something that you didn’t tell me !! I’m really not happy Jaan !! You should have told me !!” Ragini just looked at him and started to walk away. Lakshya held her hand and pulled her close. He looked into her eyes and said -” Bye ! Text me ! I’m really not happy ! Love you ! But I’m really not happy !”
It was just a downward spiral for Ragini. Things kept getting worse. But she had made the right choice, to join a different school. Because there she would find the person who would wipe her tears and pick her up.
Ironically, her centre for the examination was the same school. Their exams went well and Ragini had convinced Lakshya to forget that she ever loved him. On the day of the last exam, the three of them -Lakshya, Swara and Ragini were walking around the school campus. When Ragini finally told them- “I’m going to join this school you guys. So this is it for us.” While Swara seemed pretty much okay with it, Lakshya refused to let go. Though he and Swara had already submitted their admission forms in their previous school, Lakshya wanted to hold on to Ragini. He made her promise that they will text each other everyday. She reluctantly agreed. He threatened her, saying that if she didn’t text him, he would go to her aunt and say that he was her boyfriend. She felt defeated. She was trying to stay away from him and he was not letting her go. But inspite of what she had decided, she never wanted to let him go either. But then she met the person who helped her let go of him- atleast a little.
