952 Please do not tell her about this.
"I intend to…" Ji Ziming took a deep breath and said solemnly, "tell her the truth. No matter what, she has a right to know about this as my wife."
Mu Heng protested the idea immediately after he suggested it.
"Are you stupid or what? How can you tell Little Chili about this? If you let her know about this, you're done for!" shouted Mu Heng in agitation.
"Ji Ziming, just say if you love Little Chili!"
"… I do. She's the woman I love the most in this life." He gave this reply after a short pause.
"Do you want to do something like that with another woman? Did you initiate it?" asked his friend shrewdly again.
"No," he replied coldly, gripping the phone tightly.
"Exactly! That was an accident—one that nobody wanted to happen! That's why you mustn't tell her about what you did last night, or else your wedding might not happen," advised his childhood friend.
"… But I don't want to lie to her. She's my future wife; there shouldn't be lies between us," he rejecting plainly, thinking that it was a bad idea.
"Ziming, what do you want me to say? Yes, there shouldn't be any lies between a couple, but there's a difference between a white lie and a regular lie!"
Mu Heng began to break things down for him when the latter remained steadfast on his decision.
"You are honest and have great character, but if you tell her that you slept with another woman while you were drunk, she may end up breaking up with you! She won't forgive you because she's moved by your honesty!
"Conversely, she'll leave you because of what you did. Pei Ge is called Little Chili because she has a feisty personality. She's an open and straightforward person. By this logic, she won't be able to accept that the man she loves slept with another woman after their engagement and before their wedding! There's no way she'll accept that."
Listening to his words, the man knitted his brows together and sat silently on the bed.
"So you can't tell her about this!"
"Can't tell her…" he muttered, pain flashing across his eyes.
"Yes! Don't tell her about this, or else…"
In the end, he went with his friend's suggestion.
He felt that his brain would explode at the thought of her leaving him if she found out the truth.
He could not accept her leaving him, so he chose to lie…
"Oh, right. The woman with you last night—she's… not going to be a problem, right?"
"No, she said that she'll treat it as a dream…" he replied softly, a little dazed.
"Sigh! That woman's pretty nice."
Mu Heng pouted when he heard his friend's words.
"Sigh! When I woke up this morning, I found that you and Fu Mingxuan hadn't returned last night. You have no idea how many times I've called you two! In the end, this happened…"
As he spoke, he sighed.
"Sigh… I still haven't managed to get in touch with him. I hope that nothing's happened to him, too."
As he spoke, he brought the topic of conversation back to the man.
"Okay, Ziming, you'd better wash up and recover yourself. Don't let Little Chili discover it. If you think… that you can't face her right now, how about you go on a business trip? I'm afraid you'll be—"
Ji Ziming cut him off before he could finish.
He then hung up the phone.
"Go on a business trip…"
The man stared at the phone in his hand dazedly.
Perhaps due to his overwhelming love for her, he felt that he could not face her after something like this happened.
He was afraid that he would expose everything right after he saw her…
"I'd better chill out…"
A disgusted expression appeared on his face when he got off the bed and saw the mess on the floor.
He walked to the bathroom.
Seeing his reflection in the mirror, he could not help punching it.
Following the shattering noise, blood flowed from the back of his hand.
"Ji Ziming, you're so useless…"
After he hung up the phone, the gloominess on Mu Heng's face intensified as he recalled his childhood friend's words.
"How could something like this happen…" He muttered incessantly as he gripped his phone.
He really did not expect things to turn out like this from a simple bachelor's party.
He also did not expect Ji Ziming to do something like that.
"It's fine; it's fine! I should stop thinking about it since things already turned out that way." Just as he uttered this, he thought of another close friend of his.
Recalling what had happened to Ji Ziming, he immediately dialed Fu Mingxuan's number.
After it did not go through the first time, he tried again.
The man picked up on his second try.
"Hello! Where are you right now?"
The man's voice, which came from the other end, sounded a little strange.
His heart skipped a beat at this.
"No way! Did you go to the wrong bed and sleep with the wrong woman, too?" He blurted out this question.
He only realized that he had said the wrong thing after he had already said it. He unintentionally revealed things he should not have!
"What do you mean by 'went to the wrong bed and slept with the wrong woman, too'?" Fu Mingxuan asked sharply.
Mu Heng did not know how to explain things to the other for a moment.
"Did something happen to Ji Ziming?"
