i don't know where i lost the path when i found it but the woods i was used to had slipped away and in a small clearing, darkened by the density of trees around it, i saw the portal.
stepping through to the witchwood i heard the sounds of creatures and critters who cared to notice a stranger stepping into their home. some took no notice, some slept, a few pretended otherwise while stealing glances, and at least one wouldn't stop staring.
the witchwood surrounded me and the atmosphere, thick with the curious and dubious alike, felt alive. from the earth, heavy with root systems, to the creatures making their homes in the trees, there was intelligence here that did not exist in the forest i was accustomed to. i can hear my heart beating rapidly in my ears, the heat of knowing i am not necessarily welcome but won't be turned away. i am a stranger here, it is clear they don't see many visitors.
this is a place for getting lost, for being found, a forest of familiars for those who might seek them.
the path here is not easy to find, much like anything worthwhile, it steps into your life when you're ready. it found me and the witchwood will lead if i will follow...
i step forward, carefully, leaving the portal behind to see who i might meet.
