Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal

At first, the man only saw a faint light and a small opening in the ground. He wasn’t sure if it was real or if he was just dreaming. After a few minutes of hesitation, he decided to take a chance and stepped through the portal.

Immediately, he felt a tingling sensation throughout his body and his surroundings became brightly lit. He saw creatures of all shapes and sizes walking around in the vast garden before him. He could hear the sound of flowing water and the gentle wind in the trees.

He was in awe of the beauty and peace that he felt in the place. He decided to stay there for a while, savoring the moment. But eventually, he reluctantly returned to the real world. He knew that he would have to return to the portal again someday.
