“Hello Mr. al-Kadi! And welcome to Apple Corps!”
“Thank you. I’m so glad to be here.” Kashi and Johan shook hands.
“I’m Johan and I’ll be giving you a tour of the factory today. We’ve very excited to see the specs from your engineers over at PomTriece. Etta Whare is one of our favorite companies to produce for. ”
“One of?” Kashi cocked an eyebrow.
“Our favorite!” Johan corrected and opened a great steel door for Kashi to pass through. Kashi thought to himself It feels good to be acting again.
“This!” said Johan with a sweeping gesture. “Is the Product Hall. Kashi looked down from their catwalk perch. In the depths below him were hundreds of people hunched over computers inlaid into desks.
“I know they seem a little uptight from this angle but just wait until happy hour.” Johan winked. “These people, honest to goodness, were born to innovate.” Kashi and Johan moved on down the hall and through another steel braced door.
“Over here are the yoga studios, spas, game rooms, and even a state-of-the-art daycare. Oh and over here on the left is the oxygen chamber.”
“Aha!” Kashi exclaimed, “and I thought that was just a rumor.”
“Well,” Johan winked again, “they haven’t outlawed everything.”
Johan took Kashi by the shoulder and directed him down myriad passage ways and tunnels until the dizzying monstrosity of Apple Corps was sufficiently clear.
At long last, Johan announced, “And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for, Mr. al-Kadi. Here is our pride and joy, iBuild Alpha.”
Johan opened the door and ushered Kashi inside.
