I hopped over to the edge of the portal and peered out into the tunnel. I could hear the creatures nearby, shifting more objects and dumping stuff on the ground. They were in a world I had not yet explored, a place that Big Guy and the High-Voiced One disappeared into at night. I had assumed that it was their Home Place.
As I glanced into the strange world across the tunnel from my own sanctuary, I glimpsed their feet moving around the area. I had to make a decision. Should I stay where I was or should I hop into this unexplored land and attack these invaders over there?
