He groaned and ran his fingers through his stupid human hair.

“I’m so stupid!” he muttered angrily to himself, kicking a tree stump and consequently falling into the dirt. He mumbled a string of incoherent curses under his breath as he got up and dusted himself off.

“9295 Goldencrest Court,” he announced to the portal, his human house pictured clearly in his mind.
