Alycia’s boots crunch across the gravel as she approaches the Gale carriage house. In theory she’s on private property. But her business isn’t with Harry’s family, and the carriage house is separate enough that she can kind of mentally assert that she needn’t check in at the main building before visiting Leo.
She assumes her visit is visually confirmed by whatever surveillance system AEGIS has on her. Her educated guess (74.2%) is that the carriage house itself is not bugged. She doesn’t know if Leo sweeps for that sort of thing, but she’d guess that he, or Aria, or Otto, have some way of dealing with that. Or the Gales may do so, as far as that goes; AEGIS might prefer to not antagonize a couple of HHL supers without very, very good reason.
It’s not like this is a life-or-death matter, anyway. But it’s a bit embarrassing / irritating to talk about AEGIS when being surveilled by AEGIS.
She knocks. “Hello?” she calls out. I’m going to feel stupid if Leo isn’t here.
