Use zu ni with Base 1 to say that someone did something without doing something else
which was expected. Yes, that's a tad confusing, but these examples should make it
clear:

Kare wa yuushoku o tabezu ni nemashita. (He went to bed without eating

dinner.)

Kyou Shizuka wa kyoukasho o motazu ni gakkou ni kimashita. (Today Shizuka
came to school without her textbook.)

Bob wa maemotte denwa sezu ni John no ie ni ikimashita. (Bob went to John's
house without calling first.)

Please note that in some cases the ni after the zu may be omitted, especially when no
particular emphasis needs to be applied.

Word Check

neru: to sleep
kyoukasho: textbook
motsu: to hold; to have
gakkou: school
