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

John had always been curious about the world beyond his small town. He knew there was more out there, and one night, while out hiking, he stumbled upon a mysterious portal. After entering, he found himself in a strange, new world. He was able to explore this new place for hours, discovering new things and meeting new people. Eventually, he realized he needed to return home. However, before he could, he was attacked by a dragon. John was able to fight off the creature, but he was injured in the process. While recuperating, John decided to stay in his new world. He loved spending his time exploring and meeting new people, and he knew that he wouldn’t be able to do that if he were back home.
