Chapter 9 (Part 3) Big Ben Back at Work
Meanwhile, in the darkness, back at the scrapyard, Big Ben the massive construction-bot was indeed alive once more and now idling passively after having chased away what he perceived to be a trespasser on his work-site. Being a diligent construction site robot, Ben was always on the alert for unsafe working conditions in his domain. His infrared sensor correctly detected the boy (his Foreman), the tall female (the Boss), and a tall male, an (Authorized Assistant) within the workshop. The second tall male, an (Unauthorized Trespasser) whom Ben had never before cleared as "Safe" was promptly expelled from the hazardous work-site.
