The Sweet Tooth

You awake disorientated and confused. You sit up looking around unable to find anything that looked at all familiar. Upon a second scan of the trees surrounding you, you realised that everything seemed somewhat off. All the leaves on the trees were shining unnatural bright colours. The dirt was an unearthly blackish grey. Bright red light reflected from somewhere unseen beyond the trees, landing just in front of your hands. You stared at it. Momentarily entranced by the bright colour. A sharp cough brought your attention to a figure in front of you that you were ninety-nine percent sure was not there a minute ago.
"Good morning Traveller!"
She chimed, happily twirling around in a circle before focusing her attention back on you.
"I presume like most who come through here you have no idea where you came from? I am correct right? Yes?"
You jumped up racking your brain for an answer. Where had you come from? What was going on? She sighed noticing your confused look, looking almost sad.
"Ahh, I thought that much. You're the sixth person to pass through here today. Let me give you a small piece of advice before I leave. Beware of the white trees that talk."
With that she disappeared in a flash of bright red. Started you blinked and looked around again even more confused than you had been a few minutes ago.
1 Looking back, you observe that the forest thickens. You think that you came from that direction. It seems a small bit familiar, like you'd only seen it once while quickly walking through. You decide that there are probably more people back that way, but then again why had you left?
2 Looking forward the trail turns sharply to the left. You cant seem to see anything through the trees, but you think that you see small patches of white. Snow maybe? The girls warning hung fresh in your mind. White Trees that talked? What could she possibly been talking about?
3 Your attention seems to be drawn to your left. The path in that direction is small and thin, but you think that you see it open a few metres down. This path seems to be pulling you towards it, but your not sure if it is safe.
You wander back down the path, eyes darting from side to side. Something seems to be repelling you away from whatever lays at the end of this path. You stop and study your surroundings afraid on continuing into the unknown. The shine of varnished wood beyond a few trees just off the trail catches your eyes. Do you want to investigate?
As you draw closer to the wooden structure. A young man appears in front of you. A menacing lion spirit of some kind swirls blazing just behind him. You stumble back in surprise. Does everyone here like to sneak up on others? The lion snarls and snaps at the air, its eyes bright and ablaze.
"Who are you and why are you here?"
He hisses pushing the lion back behind him. What do you do?

I answer him confused. Not being able to tell him any information. Afraid of the lion behind him.
He cocks his head and stares at you. His eyes jumped about your face looking for any sign that you might be lying. After he seems satisfied that you are telling the truth he happily introduced himself, the intimidating shell now completely melted.
"Nice to meet you! My names Felix Glynn and I am the guardian of this side of the forest! Would you like a place to stay the night? You do look awfully cold. I wouldn't want you wandering around in the dark!"
You shift forward inclined to follow him, but something deep in your gut tells you that it might be dangerous. What should you do?
