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

John had always been fascinated by the legends of wizards and witches. He had always wanted to meet one, and now he thought he had found the perfect opportunity. There was a portal in the attic of his parents’ house, and if he followed the instructions on the plaque, he would be transported to another world.

That was until he stepped through the portal. John found himself in a dark, spooky forest. The trees were sinister, and the air smelled damp and cold. It didn’t look like the world he had pictured. He was about to turn back when he heard a voice calling his name.

It was a woman, and she was beautiful. She wore a flowing dress and her eyes were twinkling. She smiled at John and said, “Welcome to my world.”
