As the sun set a fog rolled in over New Babbage. Outside the dining establishment a crowd was gathering around the two waiting clanks. The crowd drew a bobby. "What's all this, then?" he demanded shining his lantern on the impassive bulk of the Guardian.
" 'E's charged wif teh safety o' teh new Guv'ner o' Darkstar oo be dinin' wivvin yon establishment," Fat Bob explained. "Bein' as we exceed teh dye-men-shuns of yon establishment's portal we awaits on teh Guv'ner 'ere."
"Is that so," the bobby, unimpressed, replied.

Nice foggy atmosphere and lighting! I love how Fat Bob looks a bit anxious as he explains his presence to the policeman. I'm guessing by the policeman's response that talking robots aren't too much of a surprise around these parts, but hopefully it's not a crime to wait on the sidewalk, even with such a large companion!!
Loitering is always suspicious to the constabulary no matter the era, I think. Sadly, Fat Bob is likely not a smooth enough talker to get out of the next bit, which is usually "Move along now!"
I'm delighted that you are engaged with the story as well as the imagery!
