-Inside Dr. Reid's garage, one hour and two minutes later-
Leonidas had been patrolling both the house and the garage for a little over an hour and had not seen any signs of a break-in or other unsavory activity. He was currently walking along the left wall after exiting the mini-kitchen, where he set his empty mug down on the small square table so that he did not have to hold it in his right hand for the next three or so hours. As he was walking he spotted a large metallic shutter on the left wall close to the corner and walked over to it. He stopped in front of it and noticed a glowing keypad on the wall to the right of the shutter.
Leonidas saw the keypad and surmised that it was used to open the large metallic shutter. He briefly wondered what was behind it before quickly deciding that what was behind the shutter was none of his business. He resumed walking around the perimeter of the garage and made a right turn at the corner. He walked along the perimeter and listened to his footsteps echo through the nearly empty garage as he walked towards the top right corner. Once he reached it he turned and walked for the bottom right corner of the garage, paying close attention to the garage door as he walked by it.
It was still firmly closed and the bottom was against the ground.
Satisfied that the garage door was not being pried open or otherwise tampered with, Leonidas kept walking until he reached the bottom right corner, then began to walk towards the mini-kitchen. He walked towards the open doorway and when he got to it passed through it without breaking stride. He was about to go into the doctor's house and make sure that it had not been broken into while he was busy patrolling the garage.
-Inside the doctor's house-
Leonidas slowed down and carefully inspected the living room for anything that might have been out of place or might have gone missing. That would be an easy task because there was not a whole lot in the living room except for a single brown cloth couch and a wooden coffee table that was loaded down with magazines that looked like they had never been read. Leonidas stopped and looked around the living room and noticed that the walls were barren... there were no family pictures, no framed diplomas, degrees, or certifications, nothing to suggest that anyone lived here.
Satisfied that nothing was amiss in the living room, Leonidas walked forward and down a hallway with two closed doors; there was one on the left side of the hallway and another one straight ahead. There was an open door on the right side, so that was where the blond man focused his attention. He walked until he stood outside the open door, then peered into the room and soon got an idea of what room he was looking into.
He was looking into the doctor's bedroom.
Leonidas peered inside the room with beige walls and saw a single bed consisting of a mattress resting on a white wooden frame with a white headboard. On the wall beside the bed were hanging diplomas, degrees, and certifications in black frames that most people would display in their living rooms. Maybe the doctor just did not care to show them off and was content to leave them in her room.
Leonidas looked at the bed more closely and noticed that it had white sheets, but the sheets were covered in clothes that were neatly placed all over the bed and a few of them had been neatly folded up. It looked like Dr. Reid had been doing laundry before Leonidas showed up. Satisfied that nothing was amiss in the room, he turned away from the doctor's bedroom and walked back down the hall towards the mini-kitchen. He would take a brief break in there, then go back into the garage and walk around it again.
-Inside the garage, two hours and three minutes later-
It was a little over three hours into his house-sitting job and Leonidas had just wrapped up his latest patrol of the house. He walked through the mini-kitchen door into the garage, stopped just inside of it, and looked at the large garage door a good distance away from him. It looked to be firmly closed, but he would check it out more closely when he got to it. He walked over to the large metallic shutter and made sure that it was still closed. The shutter had not budged since the last time he was in here.
Leonidas turned away from the shutter and walked all the way across the garage to the garage door, which he inspected closely. It was still closed and did not show any signs of someone attempting to pry it open. Satisfied with that, he turned away from it and resumed his patrol of the garage. He wondered if Dr. Reid was getting everything she needed during her shopping trip.
