“It’s OK. It’s our choice. It’s none of your business.”
“Yes, no matter who you choose, we will accept it.”
Ming and Sean said.
To be honest, this was a ridiculous thing. I looked at them. “Why do you want me to decide your life? Aren’t you stupid?”
I really didn’t understand why they did it.
“Neither of them is willing to quit, so they decide in this extreme way. Anyway, they can take charge of each other’s company and run it well, and both of them will be very good to you.” Ward said.
Sean and Ming did not contradict what he said.
“So one of you will live and the other will die?” I looked at them in confusion.
“If they keep fighting, they will both fail. It’s better to solve it fundamentally.” Ward was very nagging.
But he seemed to fully understand Sean and Ming’s options.
They heard him and didn’t explain.
It seemed to be true.
I looked at them and smiled helplessly, “so it can’t be changed, can it?”
They both nodded.
But neither of them was afraid and seemed ready to die.
“Come on.” Ward put the pistol in front of me again.
“OK.” I nodded.
The bodyguard let me go again. My hands were on the pistol.
This revolver was much heavier than I thought. Maybe because of my fear, I could hardly hold it.
I slowly raised my arms and pointed the muzzle of my gun in the middle of them.
Ward asked, “who will you shoot first?”
Sean and Ming were looking at me.
This choice was important.
Because it meant that the other person was more important in my heart.
My hands held the pistol. “Do I have to choose one?”
“Of course, this is the rule.” Ward smiled and said, “and they are voluntary. You don’t have to be stressed. Although this is my first time to see such a magical wish, it may be the power of love.”
I held the pistol in my hand and looked at Sean and said, “Sean, I met you when I was ten years old and fell in love with you. Although we hurt each other and suspected each other a lot and the time we really spent together was very short, the ordinary time in The Best Home is the happiest time for me when I can wait for you to go home and eat with you every day.”
Sean said nothing. He looked at me calmly.
I looked at Ming, “Ming, you are the best person to me in the world. No one has been so good to me in this life. I see everything you do to me. People are not plants. I’ve been moved by you for a long time. I’ll spend my life with you. I believe all your promises to me will come true.”
Ming didn’t speak, either.
My pistol was aimed between them.
Ward stood aside impatiently. “Make up your mind. Shall I make it for you?”
“No, I’ll do it myself.” I calmly said, “if there must be a person who dies, it must be…”
Before I finished, I aimed the gun at my own temple.
I closed my eyes and pulled the trigger!
Although there was a slight noise, nothing happened.
I quickly pulled it for the second time.
It seemed that I was still alive.
I heard Sean.
I immediately pulled it for the third time!
At the same time, I felt that my hand holding the pistol was kicked by a big force!
My wrist was raised!
At the same time, I heard a loud noise. My eardrum was shaking. My scalp seemed to feel a huge shock!
I felt as if my scalp had been cut and it was shaking my brain!
At that moment two voices were calling me.
One was from Sean and the other was from Ming.
These two different names seemed to be me of two generations.
Was I going to die?
At that moment, I just felt my body falling fast. Soon there was a mess around!
I was sorry for Lester.
At this point, Sean and Ming were alive and I didn’t have to worry about them.
The person I had to worry about was Lester, who hadn’t grown up yet.
He was young but his mother was dying.
Soon my eyes fell into darkness.
I was not dead.
When I woke up again, I was in a strange room. I looked around and my brain was blank.
I lay there and thought for a long time. I remembered what happened before I was unconscious.
I looked at where I was and made sure I was just in an ordinary room, not in a hospital.
Was I not dead?
Didn’t the pistol hit me?
I touched my temples. It was flat and there was nothing.
I felt my head and found a layer of gauze on the right side of my head.
I pressed it lightly.
It really hurt!
But I was awake now. I realized that the gun didn’t really hit my brain and just scratched my scalp.
But where was I now?
I had never seen this place before.
I stood up and looked out of the window. It was the woods. Because it was winter, there were only bare tree trunks. The fresh snow on the ground last night had not melted.
Why was I here?
I got up from bed and wanted to open the door and look out. As soon as my hand touched the doorknob, I heard a shrill alarm outside!
What was going on?
I was scared and got my hand back.
But soon the alarm stopped.
When I hesitated to touch the handle, the door in front of me suddenly opened.
Sean was standing in front of me!
“You wake up!” When Sean saw me, he opened his arms directly and held me in his arms.
He hugged me as if to rub me into his arms.
I was held by him and thought about what happened that day. I hugged him and murmured, “I’m glad you’re still alive.”
Sean got angry at my words. He straightened up and looked at me. “If I stopped you a second later, now you are not standing here but lying in the coffin!”
I drooped my eyes. “If one person should die, it’s me.”
Since Sean was here, Ming must be alive. Now I was alive and Lester wouldn’t lose his mother.
This may be the best solution.
Ming lowered his head and gave me a kiss. “I won’t let you die.”
