    Can such an orbit exist? (picture)
    I drew this to show my meaning clearer, now there are some points to consider before answering:
    1. This system only has these 2 planets plus some moons.
    2. The star of this system can be ANYTHING if it's inconvenient.
    3. everything is natural without artificial meddling.
    4. the system and orbits are not absolute it's just a rough idea, everything can be modified EVERYTHING.
    5. most importantly is that the bigger planet has to come in front of the planet x for some period of time.
