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

Tonya never thought she would find her way home again, but when she stumbled across a portal leading to her old home, she couldn’t resist. She stepped through and was immediately struck by the nostalgia of her childhood home. It was as if she had never left.

As she explored her old bedroom, shenoticed a dusty old box on her nightstand. When she opened it, she found a set of old, faded pictures. One showed her and her older sister at the beach. Another showed them at a party. Her sister had long since passed away, but Tonya recognized the boy in the picture as her old friend, John.

Tonya was shocked to find that she was suddenly able to travel back in time. She relived her childhood memories, and moments with John. It was as if they had never been lost to time.

Finally able to put her past behind her, Tonya returned to the present, but she knew she would return to John’s home again someday. She was certain that they would find a way to connect again.
