 Inside a dark room.

Lying on the cold floor, Ming's legs were tied up with a long chain and her head was hurting a lot.

Slowly opening her eyes, Ming saw a blurry vision was a man and a woman hugging each other affectionately.

She wanted to say something but her throat felt dry.

Stretching her hands towards the man, Ming tried to touch him but couldn't. She stopped struggling when she saw the man and woman coming towards her.

She knew who the man was. She knew him very well. He was the man whom she loved, whom she cherished but who was that woman in his arms? She did not know. She had no idea who she was.

" Singtan." Ming murmured with great difficulty but before she could even touch his clothes, Singtan jerked her hands off and pulled that woman towards him.

Ming could not believe what she was seeing. Her Singtan had his arms wrapped around some other woman.

Suddenly Ming realised something. Looking down, Ming widened her eyes in shock when she saw her flat tummy. Where was her baby? Why was her tummy flat? She panicked. She wanted to know what was wrong. Where was her baby and why was she here?

As Ming was busy trying to figure out what was wrong, she saw the same woman coming towards her with a knife in her hand.

Ming tried to move but failed. Stretching her hands towards Singtan, Ming tried to ask him for help but Singtan gave her a mocking smile and left.

As soon as the woman plunged the knife inside the chest, Ming gasped and opened her eyes.

Looking down, when Ming saw her baby bump she breathed a sigh of relief.

Looking around, Ming took a deep breath when she saw a familiar surrounding.

Bad dream. It was just a bad dream but it felt so real. For some reason, Ming couldn't stop her tears.

Picking up her phone, Ming quickly called Singtan.

After two rings, Singtan received the call.

When he heard Ming's soft sobs, he quickly got up from the bed and asked," Ming what happened? Why are you crying? Did someone tell you something? Ming say something. I am feeling worried."

Sobbing for quite some time, Ming said," I just had a really bad dream. I know you are busy but I just wanted to hear your voice and make sure you are okay. I won't waste your time but I just wished you were here." before hanging up the call.

Tossing the phone away, Ming closed her eyes and tried to calm herself down.

After five minutes, someone entered her room and closed the door.

" Yixi can you please get me a glass of water?" Ming said without opening her eyes.

Passing a glass of water to Ming, the man said," If you keep rubbing it that way, it will turn red and that will not go with your dress that you are wearing tomorrow."

" Ya I kn-" Ming widened her eyes in shock when she realised who it was.

Lifting her head up, Ming's eyes watered when she saw Singtan standing in front of her with a glass of water in his hand.

Getting down from the bed, Ming wrapped her arms around his waist and buried her head on his chest.

Putting the glass down, Singtan wrapped his arms around her and said," Stop crying. Do you want to go to the event with red swollen eyes tomorrow?"

Hitting him on his chest, Ming said," It's all your fault."

" Sorry."

" How did you come here? I mean so fast and-"

Cutting her off, Singtan said," Don't ask anything because right now I cannot explain."

Ming sniffed and said," Hmm okay but stay with me."

Singtan sighed and nodded his head. Initially he wanted to surprise Ming during the event but after hearing her cry through the phone, who cared about the surprise? Singtan was staying in the same hotel, just beside Ming's room. After hanging up the call, Singtan quickly called Zihao to get the master key of Xie Ming's room. Now that she was again in his arms, Singtan finally felt calm and peaceful. He decided to stay with Ming and plan the surprise together.

" What did you dream about?" Singtan asked.

Ming shook her head and said," I don't want to talk about it."

Kissing her forehead, Singtan said," Come I'll help you bathe."

Ming smiled and nodded her head.

....

After taking a nice warm bath with Singtan, Ming stretched her arms towards Singtan and said," Hug me for sometime."

Singtan chuckled and said," I don't know what is wrong with both of us. We both cannot stay without each."

Ming chuckled and said," It's all your fault. You always do everything for me so I am so used to you being around me."

" Hmm What do you want to eat?" Singtan asked.

" Anything will do." Ming said snuggling her face against his firm chest.

Singtan quickly ordered something for both of them.

After eating the food, Ming hugged Singtan to sleep.

.....

Next morning, Singtan woke up very early.

Waking Ming up, Singtan kissed her forehead and said," I am leaving for now. I'll see you at the party."

" Seriously Singtan What are you up to?" Ming asked.

Caressing her cheeks, Singtan said," Be good and wait for me."

" Hmm you better be there on time because I want to show off my handsome husband in front of everyone." Ming said.

Singtan chuckled and said," I'll definitely be there on time."

" I love you Mr Li." Ming said.

" I love you too. Sleep for a while. I'll ask Yutang to wake you up later." Singtan said.

Ming nodded her head and dozed off to sleep.

....

After coming out of the room, Singtan took a deep breath before calling Zihao.

" Come to my room fast. I have to practice everything again." Singtan said.

" Ehh Boss didn't you practice everything yesterday?" Zihao asked.

Singtan frowned and said," Why do I feel like you are tired of your job Zihao?"

" I'll be there in five minutes." Zihao said before hanging up the call.
