Then he made her lie back on bed with a hand and himself came up on her.. Ragini’s heart was beating really fast and she was breathing so fast.. He then removed her hair flicks back from her cheeks while looking into her teary eyes..and then her started bringing his face closer to hers..she turned her head closing her eyes tightly shedding off the tears.. And then he moved his face slowly towards her neck and she felt his warm breath on her skin.. She clutched the bedsheet in her fists tightly but then..he stopped! He smirked looking at her face and got up from her.. Ragini got her eyebrows normal..she opened her eyes and and sat up looking at him confused.. He moved to her dupatta and took it up from the floor.. Ragini was confused looking at him..
Laksh: (looking at her dupatta) Soch rahi ho ki maine kuchh kyu nahi kiya…? (He looked up in her confused eyes and smirked) Hain na? Kyunki meri jaan laksh maheshwari daan nahi leta.. Mujhe sirf tumhe paana hi nahi hai.. Tumhe haasil karna hai.. Tumhe jeetna hai.. But this… Is not my way..
He then threw her dupatta on her.. And smirked while ragini was looking at him shocked having tears in her red confused eyes.. She then removed her eyes and covered herself with her dupatta.. She got up from his bed and looked at him while he was staring her with a smirk..
Laksh: Par iska matlab ye nahi hai ki tum bach gayi.. Tum abhi bhi meri ho..
Ragini: Aa…aap humare bhai ko chhod denge?
Laksh: Itni asaani se? Never..
Ragini: (got irritated on this) To phir kya chahte hain aap..? Jo aap chahte the wo kar to rahe the naa hum.. To phir..phir ab aur kya chahiye aapko…?
Laksh: (smirked) Batata hu.. (Held her arm) Aao mere saath..
And then he dragged confused ragini out of his room..
Ragini: (trying to remove his hand) Kaha le jaa rahe hain hume..? Chhodiye..
And he stood with her in centre of the stairs..
Laksh: (called) Maa papa?? Chacha ji..chachi ji.. Baahar aaiye..
Ragini got shocked looking at his face..
Ragini: (tears dropped down) Ye aap kya kar rahe hain..? (Laksh smirked looking at her) aisa mat kijiye.. Please kisi ko kuchh mat bataiye..please.. Humara yaha rehna bohot zaruri hai please..
Laksh smirked widely removing his eyes and he dragged her downstairs to the main hall.. And left her wrist.. All the family members came out and ragini immediately wiped her tears composing herself..everybody were confused..and laksh left
Dp: Kya baat hai laksh? Kyu chilla rahe ho?
Ap: Kya hua beta?
Laksh: Wo maa papa..main aap sab se kuchh important baat karna chahta tha.. Infact.. (Looked at ragini) infact kuchh batana chahta tha..
Ragini was stunned with teary eyes.. She slowly nodded in no to tell him not say anything about her.. She was so nervous and was sensing that tonight she would be kicked out of the mansion.. Aditya was just looking at her with so many questions in eyes..he was not interested in laksh’s matter..he was just trying to read her face..
Ap: Laksh aisi kya baat hai jo tumhe iss waqt batani hai?
Dp: Haan laksh.. Hum kal subah bhi baat kar sakte the..
Laksh: nahi papa.. Baat bohot important hai.. Mere liye.. Infact aap sab ke liye..
Sujata: Naa to bata naa ke baat hai? Itna suspace kaae rakha hua hai?
Swara: Mom.. Its suspence..
Sujata: Haan bo hi..
Ap: Laksh bolo beta kya baat hai?
Laksh: actually main aap sab ko batana chahta tha ki.. Maine ek decision liya hai..
Dp: (confused) Kaisa decision laksh?
Laksh: Shaadi ka decision.. (Everybody got surprised.. Laksh smiled.. Ragini was shocked and confused too) Actually main shaadi karna chahta hu..
Everyboy smiled obviously except confused ragini.. Ap smiled in disbelief..
Ap: To tumne ye baat karne ke liye hum sab ko yaha bulaya..
Sujata: naa jijji.. Dekho to kitna bada ho gaya thaara chhora.. Khud thaare ko yaad dila raha ki maahre liye chhori dhundho maahre ko saadi karni hai..
They all laughed.. Except ragini ofcourse..
Ap: Theek hai laksh.. Hum jald se jald tumhare liye koi acchi si ladki dhundh kar tumhari shaadi karwa denge..bass?
Laksh: Uski koi zarurat nahi hai maa.. Maine apne liye ladki dhundh li hai..
Everybody got amazed.. Ragini was shocked and confused.. Laksh smiled..
Sujata: Laks tune ladki dhundh bhi li? Naa wo maarwadi to hai naa?
Laksh: Haan chachi.. Maarwadi hi hai.. Infact aap log bohot acche se jaante ho usey..
Ap: Offo laksh.. Paheliya’n mat boojhao.. Aur batao bhi ki kaun hai wo?
Dp: Haan laksh.. Batao kkaun hai wo jise humare bete ne pasand kiya hai…
Laksh: Ragini… (Everybody got shocked..ragini got shocked and stunned.. Aditya felt like the ground under his feet got snatched..and laksh looked at ragini with a slight smile) Main ragini se bohot pyaar karta hu… Isey apna banana chahta hu.. (Announcing infront of all) main ragini se shaadi karna chahta hu…
Everybody were damn shocked.. Ragini was looking at his face being stunned with teary red eyes.. and he smiled at her..
Sujata: naa tu pagal ho gaya laks..? Je.. Je ragini je ghar ki naukrani hai.. Ek naukrani se saadi karega tu?
Ap: Ye kya keh rahe ho tum laksh? Tum ragini se shaadi kaise…..?
Laksh: (in a rage) kyu nahi kar sakta? Pyaar karta hu main ragini se.. Bohot pyaar karta hu.. Aur isliye isey apna banana chahta hu.. Issey shaadi karna chahta hu to isme kya galat hai..?
Ap: Nahi galat to kuchh nahi hai par.. Sahi bhi to nahi hai naa beta.. Ragini.. Ragini iss ghar ki..
Laksh: Servant hai? Par shaadi ke baad iss ghar ki bahu ho jayegi.. Bass..? (Looked at dp) Papa.. Main ragini se bohot pyaar karta hu.. Aur main ragini se hi shaadi karunga.. Aapne humesha meri har wish..har chahat ko poora kiya hai.. N I’m sure ki aap iske liye bhi mana nahi karenge..
Everybody were shocked and confused..Ragini was so broken..she doesn’t understand what was going on in her life.. She never ever thought that somethibg like this would ever happen to her.. On the other hand aditya was getting his heart being crushed in every second.. His eyes were filled with tears..swara who was standing beside him saw his face.. She then decided that she won’t let this injustice to be happened with her brother so she came forward..
Swara: Wo sab to theek hai bhai.. Aap ragini se pyaar karte hain..ussey shaadi karna chahte hain to aapne sabko ye keh diya.. Lekin.. I think hume pehle ragini se bhi iss baare me puchh lena chahiye..
Laksh: Isme puchna kya hai? I know (looked at ragini raising half of his eyebrows) ragini mana nahi karegi…
Ap: Lekin beta pehle ussey puchh lena behtar hai.. (Went towards ragini) Ragini beta.. Kya tum.. Tum laksh se shaadi karne ke liye taiyaar ho?
Ragini was so shocked.. She doesn’t know what to say literally.. She couldn’t agree to marry the person she hated the most..but she couldn’t even deny as her brother’s life was in danger..aditya had a last hope that she would say no.. His eyes were teary and heart was aching.. Laksh was looking at ragini having attitude in eyes with half raised eyrbrows.. Swara looked at aditya and held his hand to assure him that she would deny bu then..
Ragini: (being determined) Hum taiyaar hain..!
Evetybody got shocked.. Laksh smirked widely.. Aditya got broken he felt like someone stabbed him in his chest.. His tears were ready to roll down.. Swara got shocked.. She looked at aditya’s face..and then at ragini’s face.. Ragini’s eyes were about to cry..but she lowered down her eyes and her tears dropped down..
Laksh: Dekha maa.. Main kya keh raha tha aap sab ko? Ragini bhi taiyaar hai.. Ab to aap log khush hai naa?
Dp: laksh.. Humne humesha tumhari har khwahish ko poora kiya hai.. Tumne jo maanga humne diya.. Aur agar aaj tumhari khwahish ragini ke saath zindgi bitane ki hai.. Aur agar ragini bhi iss rishte ke liye taiyaar hai to theek hai.. Hum tumhari aur ragini ki shaadi ke iss faisle se khush hain.. Anpurna.. Inn dono ki shaadi ki..
Just then swara came infront of all clapping with tears rolling down from her angry eyes..and there was a smile of satire on her face..
Swara: wah bade papa! Wah..! Kya insaaf hai aapka.. Jab maine sanskaar se pyaar kiya tha to wo iss ghar kar naukar tha.. Aur humara pyaar gunah.. Lekin aaj.. Aaj jab aapke bete ko iss ghar ki naukrani se pyaar ho gaya to wo unki khwahish hai.. Unki chahat hai jisey aap poori karne ko taiyaar ho gaye.. Wow.. That’s too amazing.. (Looked at laksh) bhai.. Aap hi kehte the naa ki sanskaar naukar hai.. Humare ghar kaa hissa banne ke layak nahi hai.. To phir aaj kya ho gaya aapko..? Aaj iss naukrani ko iss ghar ka hissa banane ke baare me soch bhi kaise sakte hain aap…? (Looked at all) Aaj.. Aaj ek baat samajh aa chuki hai mujhe.. Ki bade papa.. Aap kaise rishto ke hisaab se rang badalte hain..
Ram prasad: (fires in eyes) Swara! Je ke tareeka hai…?
Dp: Ek minute ram.. (Looked at swara) swara.. Hum jaante hain ki tum humare iss faisle se khush kyu nahi ho aur isey galat kyu samajh rahi ho.. Kyunki humne tumhe tumhari chahat se dur kiya isliye.. Haan humne aisa kiya kyunki tum wo karne jaa rahi thi jissey barso ki banayi izzat mitti me milne jaa rahi thi.. Lekin laksh.. Laksh hunara beta hai..usne ragini se pyaar kiya hai to sabke saamne apne dil ki baat ko khol kar rakha hai.. Aur izzat ke saath ussey rishta jodna chahta hai.. Ab tum samajh gayi hogi ki tumhari chahat me aur humare bete laksh ki chahat me kya fark hai.. (Swara couldn’t say anything..laksh smirked) Khair.. Ab jo bhi ho.. Hum faisla kar chuke hain.. Humare bete ko ragini pasand hai to uski shaadi ragini se hi hogi.. Aur ab jab ragini ko bhi koi aitraaz nahi hai to hum me se koi bhi beech me bolne wala koi nahi hota.. Ragini aur laksh ki shaadi hogi.. Ye humara faisla hai..
Ragini closed her eyes looking down and her tears dropped down.. Laksh was like he has won something and was really happy.. Swara was so shocked and angry over this..aditya was just broken..sujata was annoyed too..and ap smiled a little..
Dp: Ab raat bohot ho gayi hai.. Aap log apne apne kamre me jaa kar araam kariye baaki ki baat kal ki jayegi..
And then dp went from there.. Ram prasad and sujata also went from there.. Ap came to laksh and smiled seeing the happiness of his eyes..she put a hand on his cheek..laksh held her hand smiling and kissed her hand.. Anpurna smiled more.. Then she went to her room.. Ragini looked up and saw aditya..aditya was looking at her whith a big ‘why?’ In his teary eyes.. Then he somehow controlled himself and went from there..ragini looked on at him..then she removed her eyes and looked at swara who was looking at her with anger in eyes.. Ragini wanted to tell her but swara nodded in no in disbelief and went from there.. Ragini’s teard dropped down.. And then.. Laksh came to her and hugged her..
Laksh: (chuckled while hugging her) Iknew it.. Mujhe pata tha ki tum mana nahi karogi.. (Broke the hug..and looked at her smirking while ragini looked at him with hatred) Arey karti bhi kaise.. Tum jaanti ho ki tumhe mujhse better person nahi milega.. (He chuckled) Khud ko daan me de rahi thi naa mujhe.. Now see.. This is my way.. Ab jaa ke haasil karunga main tumhe.. Ab tak to tum mujhe rokti rahi.. Par ab shaadi ke baad jab main tumhara pati bann jaunga tab kaise rokogi..? Ab to officially haq hoga mera tum par.. Ab tum sahi maayno me meri ho..sirf meri ho…
Ragini tears dropped down from her eyes full of hatred from him.. He chuckled..
Laksh: ab to bass humari suhagraat ke baare me socho meri jaan… (Brought his face closer while she turned her head to stay away..he wispered) Good night..
He then stepped back with a smirk and went from there.. Ragini ran to her room.. She locked it from inside and turned back merging her back to the door.. And then she burst into tears.. She sat down on floor crying badly..
Ragini: Nahi… Hum nahi kar sakte inse shaadi.. Nahi bitana chahte inke jaise ghatiya insaan ke saath apni poori zindgi.. Nahi…!!
And then she cried more…
