After No.6's first meeting with his observer No.240, she hurries away towards the Town Hall in order to take up her duties in the Control Room. No.6 takes it into his head to follow No.240, that's a good one, the observed following his Observer! But suddenly that white membranic Village Guardian has other ideas and impedes No.6's progress enough to give No.240 a head start. Then goes off for a second, allowing No.6 to mount the steps and follow in his Observer's footsteps. But then reappears again impeding No.6's progress along the cobbled path. No.240 approaches the pair of wrought iron gates, the other side of the gates and across the street, lies the Town Hall. She looks back for a second, as she realises that she is being followed by No.6. But to save her there is again the Village Guardian, as it continues to impede No.6, and give No.240 time to cross the street and enter the Town Hall. There is no force used by this membranic being against No.6, nor does it emit its blood curdling roar, or attempt to suffocate No.6 into unconsciousness. It simply glides in and out of No.6's path at given moments, with gentle persuasion and a touch of agitation, slowing No.6's progress enough to give No.240 time to enter the Town Hall.
