Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).

Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

Chapter 137

“Straight ahead, then left,” said the Jack head.  “This reunites you with two associates.  Sensors indicate that one will then remain.”
“Wait.  One?  What you mean?  There should be four more,” Business Woman said, shaking the robotic head as she ran.
“All other vital signs have terminated.  Motion sensors, respiratory patterns, heartbeats.  All negative,” said the Jack head.
Business Woman said nothing, but quickened her pace.  When she turned left she immediately leapt back, startled by Corporate Man and Senior Executive.  Both were crouched at the corner, positioned in economically feasible martial arts postures, ready to pounce.
“Jesus you two! Give a girl a heart attack.”
“Sorry.  We heard someone coming and prepared for the worst,” said Corporate Man.
“We’ve lost three,” said Business Woman.
“What?  Who?”
“Don’t know.  I rigged up this Jack unit and three life signs just blinked out.”
“Oh god,” said Senior Executive, shaking his head.
Corporate Man put a hand on each of their shoulders and said, “We’ll mourn later.  Right now we have to focus.  Keep our goals in sight and take action.  Can we use that thing to locate the other survivor?”
