Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
Danny was always a curious kid. He loved to explore every nook and cranny in his dad’s garage, and he was always on the lookout for new places to play. One day, while rummaging through the garbage can in the back, Danny uncovered a small, dusty box. He shook it out and saw that it was full of old photos. Upon closer inspection, he realized that they were of different dimensions. Some were just a few inches wide, while others were as wide as his hand. Danny had never seen anything like it before, so he put the box back where he found it and forgot about it. a few weeks later, when Danny was playing outside, he saw a bright light in the sky. When he looked closer, he realized there were three more lights in the sky, and they were moving. Danny ran inside to tell his dad about the unusual sight, but when he got to the house, he found it empty. Worried that something had happened to his dad, Danny started to search for him all over the house. When he couldn’t find him, Danny started to panic. He climbed up the tallest tree in the yard and started to look for a way down. That’s when he saw the light in the sky again, and this time he was able to get a better look at it. It was a huge, shining portal, and Danny could see people inside it. He started to climb down the tree, but just as he made it to the ground, the portal disappeared. Danny didn’t know what to do, so he went home and told his mom about the strange light and the people inside the portal. She grabbed the phone and called the police, and soon enough, Danny was standing in front of the officers, telling them about his amazing discovery.
