ISSTH Chapter 271 + The Chronicles of Baby Deathblade

BD had a bit of a fussy night last night. At about three in the morning, Madam Deathblade suddenly said, "Turn the nightlight on!" I replied, "Who turned it off?" That can only mean one thing in China.... The rest of the story comes after the jump...

That can only mean one thing in China.... No power. In China, you pay your power on a power card which you swipe at the meter. When the money runs out, the power stops. Earlier in the day the power ran out, and I used the power card to swipe for some emergency power, which usually lasts about 24 hours. This time, it ran out in the middle of the night... That meant the next time Baby Deathblade woke up hungry, it would be pitch black. Furthermore, the electric heater I bought would not longer be heating the room.

Urgh. I would not stand for such loss of power! Therefore I jumped into my coat and shoes and headed out into the freezing, abandoned streets to go pay the power. Normally you can pay at the local convenience store, but the hour was too late, so I had to hike down the street to the power company to pay at the kiosk. Madam Deathblade was worried that I would get kidnapped or something, but thankfully, no incidents occurred. Baby Deathblade didn't even know what happened!
