17. The Visionary


"I need more land. Like several thousand hectares of land!"

We were sitting at the Nikasi Real Estate office. I had barged into m15o's office like a mad man, thrown out the poor gentleman who'd probably come to buy an apartment or something, and now I was holding the office hostage.

We had been arguing back and forth about how ridiculous my ideas were. But I was determined.

I wanted land. A vast amount of land next to Nightfall City, where I could expand my projects.

"Some of your ideas are interesting," the Mayor commented, "but some, are ridiculous!" "Well, I'm a visionary! That's what visionaries do! They think big! Didn't you develop an entire city out of nothing? That's visionary too!" I said emphatically. "Krsnah, I don't have that much land. How can I give it to you?" he replied, exasperated. "Yes you do! You just aren't trying to give it to me!" I said indignantly.

The Mayor stared at me for a moment, then chuckled. I grinned like a cheeky monkey. "So do I get the land or what?" I asked. "I'll see what I can do," he said.

"Great! I'll see you folks later!" I stood up, and hurried out.

The land would free up some space at the LibreKrsnah Headquarters. All the big projects could be shifted to the outskirts of the city. And the smaller projects could be handled in-house. It seemed like the right thing to do. I didn't want a shopping mall or a hospital in my building. Too much public. I wanted the Headquarters to remain a fairly private building.
