Chapter 342 – 5-year agreement!
Xie Huilan… Qu Yunxuan…
Dong Xuebing could not make up his mind.
“What are you thinking?” Xie Huilan placed her teacup on the table and asked.
“Err… nothing.” Dong Xuebing sat down on the sofa with a gloomy expression.
“Are you thinking about Yunxuan? What will happen to her if we get married? How are you going to face her? Right?” Xie Huilan laughed and narrowed her eyes. “You… you are a flirt and is not satisfied with only a girlfriend. Haha… but to put it more nicely, you are sentimental and value feelings. You like both of us and do not want to hurt anyone of us, right?”
Dong Xuebing nodded. Sentimental and value feelings are the right description.
Xie Huilan laughed. “You had thought too highly of yourself! If you are sentimental and value feelings, you will not flirt with other women after you got a partner!”
“You are right. I deserved to be scolded.” Dong Xuebing sighed.
“Alright. Look at your sad face.” Xie Huilan crossed her legs. “I had discussed with Yunxuan about this.”
Dong Xuebing was shocked. “What have you discussed with her?”
Xie Huilan laughed again. “Of course, it’s about marriage and our relationship issues. Do you think we have not done anything since that incident? We did not mention anything to you because we are afraid that your heart might stop again. Yunxuan and I had contacted each other many times and even met up twice in the past month. We had come down to a decision.”
Dong Xuebing swallowed his saliva. “… what’s the decision?”
“Do you want to know?” Xie Huilan turned her head away. “Call and ask her yourself.”
“Ah… please tell me.”
“You will know when you ask her.”
Dong Xuebing saw Xie Huilan refusing to answer him and picks up his phone cautiously. Today, his small iPhone felt so heavy. He looked at Xie Huilan and walked into the bedroom. After closing the door, he paced up and down for a while before calling Qu Yunxuan.
Ring… ring… Xie Huilan answered.
“Hello, Aunt Xuan. It’s me.”
Qu Yunxuan laughed. “Haha… didn’t you just called me this morning? I am about to sleep.”
“Aunt Xuan. Are you hiding something from me?”
“… what is it?” Qu Yunxuan replied after a slight pause.
“Sister Xie told me that both of you had discussed something.”
“Oh…” Qu Yunxuan paused for a few seconds and replied. “Didn’t she tell you about it?”
“She asked me to ask you.” Dong Xuebing got anxious. “Aunt Xuan. Please tell me now.”
There was a long pause, and it made Dong Xuebing more anxious and scared. After a few seconds, Qu Yunxuan said. “Both of you will get married first.”
Dong Xuebing could not believe his ears. “How can I do that? You… what about you…”
“I thought you had forgotten about me.”
“Sigh… I will never forget you. What are you talking about?”
“At least you still have some conscience. Hmmm… I had discussed with Huilan over the past few days, and we quarreled several times. Don’t ask me about the process, and I will only tell you about the outcome of our discussion.” Qu Yunxuan continued. “You had saved my life once and saved Huilan twice. Both of us owe you too much, and since this had already happened, there is no point arguing over it. So, Huilan and I will each take a step back and think of a way to solve this problem. Both of us are not willing to back off, and we decided to let you get married twice.”
Dong Xuebing was stunned. “Twice? What do you mean?”
“That means Huilan, and you will get married first. She is a Mayor and is from a good family. She can help you in your career, and this is something I cannot do. But five years later, both of you must divorce and get married to me. Then… after another five years… it will be up to you to decide. If you want to get back with Huilan, I will not stop you.”
“Five years? Marriage?” Dong Xuebing was speechless.
“Yes. Other than this arrangement, we can’t think of any other solution to solve our relationship issue. To be honest, I want to get married to you first. But Xie Huilan also wants to get married first. So, we made a bet on the first digit of the lottery a few days ago. I bet on odd, and she bet on even. In the end, the first digit of the lottery is 6, and she won. So… you can get married to her first. What do you think?”
Dong Xuebing’s mind is blank, and could not think about anything at all. “This… five years? Err…”
“You don’t like this arrangement?”
“No… but… but will this work?”
“Now, it is not about whether if this can work or now. This is the only solution. Do you think I want to wait for five years? Do you think I want you to get married to Huilan? Didn’t you say you want to get married to both of us?! Then tell me! What should I do?!” Bam… bam… bam… other than the firecrackers going off in Qu Yunxuan’s background, Dong Xuebing could also hear her hitting her bed. Qu Yunxuan is angry.
Dong Xuebing quickly says. “Don’t get angry… It’s all my fault.”
“……” Aunt Xuan did not say anything.
“I am not saying this will not work. But… but I felt sorry towards both of you.”
“Xiao Bing.” Qu Yunxuan suddenly sighed. “I don’t want you to be troubled over this problem. When you collapse suddenly, and the doctor gave us the critical notification document, I was almost scared to death. I don’t want anything else as long as you are healthy. I am serious. If you think Huilan is better, I can give up and will not force you. I… I will be fine by myself.”
Dong Xuebing was touched. “No… I will not let you be alone.”
“Are you going to agree to what Huilan and I discussed?”
“Yes.” Dong Xuebing felt guilty. “Aunt Xuan. Thank you.”
“What’s there to thank me? I had watched you grow up, and as long as you are happy and healthy, I will be grateful.”
“… Thank you.”
“Haha… why are you thanking me again?”
Qu Yunxuan is too caring and gentle, and Dong Xuebing was also touched by Xie Huilan giving in to him. Both women are perfect in their own ways, and yet they had come up with this agreement because of him. Each person will get married to Dong Xuebing for five years, which Dong Xuebing wished for. His wish had come true, but at the same time, he felt more guilty towards them. Because of him, both women had to make such a big sacrifice.
No words can describe Dong Xuebing’s feelings, and his eyes turned red.
At this time, the bedroom door opens, and Xie Huilan entered.
“Ah, why are your eyes red?” Xie Huilan laughed. “Did your Aunt Xuan scold you?”
Qu Yunxuan heard Xie Huilan’s voice and said. “Huilan is beside you? Xiao Bing, turn on the speakerphone.”
Dong Xuebing hesitated for a second and turns on the speakerphone.
Qu Yunxuan said. “Huilan, I had told Xiao Bing about what we discussed, and he is fine with it.”
Xie Huilan laughed. “Do you think he will reject this proposal? He must be jumping with joy in his heart now.”
“No!” Dong Xuebing quickly explained himself.
Qu Yunxuan continued. “But as we agreed before, no one knows what the future has for us. Huilan, if after you two get married, and Xiao Bing cannot stand you, the five-year agreement will be void. Xiao Bing can get married to me before five years is up. This is what you agreed, right?”
Xie Huilan nodded. “I am afraid that after Xiao Bing spent five years with me, he will forget about you. At that time, the agreement will also be void. Right?”
“Yes.” Qu Yunxuan replied.
“Alright.” Xie Huilan replied. “That’s settled.”
Dong Xuebing will always be covered in a cold sweat whenever he saw Xie Huilan, and Qu Yunxuan speaks. He nervously interrupts. “Sister Xie, Aunt Xuan… I don’t have looks and character. How can I let both of you do this… I… I don’t know what to say… I…”
Xie Huilan laughed and looked at Dong Xuebing. “If you don’t know what to say, then don’t say anything. Do you think that you are not worth it for us to fight over you? We are also not stupid. This five-year agreement is between the three of us. None of us know if this is the right decision, but time will give us an answer. Stop saying you are sorry. It’s irritating. Hahaha.”
Qu Yunxuan added. “I agree with what Huilan said. Xiao Bing, you don’t need to be sorry for us. Huilan and I can still talk to you now are because you risked your life to save us. How many times have you almost died because of us? It should be us who should thank you. Without saving our lives, we will not be talking about our relationship. So, stop thinking that you owe us a lot.”
Dong Xuebing paused for a long time and said. “Thank you.”
Qu Yunxuan scolded angrily. “If you say those words again, I will smack your ass!”
Xie Huilan laughed. “After we got married, I will consider using this method too.”
“You dare?!” Qu Yunxuan raised her voice.
Xie Huilan narrowed her eyes and said. “Are you trying to side him? Why can you smack him, and I can’t?”
“I am only scaring him and will not really smack him!”
Both women started arguing again, but it was more in a joking manner.
Dong Xuebing looked at them and was touched.
Dong Xuebing’s relationship problem had been troubling him for a long time, and it was finally solved. He felt he had owed these two women too much and could not repay them.
