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 140

 “He’s coming around,” said Business Woman.  “Demand?  We’ve got the bleeding stopped.  Do you think you can walk?”
“Supply.  Where’s Supply?”
Business Woman looked at the others.  Both Senior Executive and Corporate Man cringed.
“Uh.  Demand, old friend.  I don’t know how to tell you this, but… she’s gone,” said Corporate Man.
“Gone where?” Demand asked.
“No honey,” said Business Woman.  “She gone.  She’s dead.”
Demand looked puzzled and pointed to the ceiling.  “She’s up there.”
“I know.  I know,” said Business Woman, embracing him.  “She’s gone to Jesus.”
“No,” said Demand.  “She’s right above us.  I can feel her.”
Business Woman pushed away.  “What?”
“Yeah.  Now she’s over that way,” he said, pointing to a different section of the ceiling.
Business Woman grabbed the Jack head and yelled, “I thought you said they were dead.”
“Not at all,” said Jack.  “I merely stated that I could no longer read their vital signs.  Passage to an upper level would account for that.  They’d no longer be within my scanning range.”
“You piece of shit,” Business Woman said, raising the Jack head, ready to smash it against the floor.
“Wait,” said Corporate Man.  “Jack.  How go we get up to next level?”
“Easy.  Take the stairs.”
“Will you lead us to the stairs?”
“Of course.”
