Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
As Brad opened the door of his home, he found himself in the middle of a large field. All around him, there was nothing but green fields and hills. A cool breeze blew through his hair and he breathed in the fresh, mountain air. Brad was used to the cold winters in Boston, but this was a pleasant surprise.
Suddenly, he heard a voice calling out his name. When he turned around, he saw a man dressed in robes walking towards him. The man had long brown hair and a kind face.
“Please, come with me,” he said.
Brad didn’t know what to make of the situation, but he followed the man anyway. As they approached a large, wooden door, the man inserted a key into the lock and opened it.
Inside, Brad was astonished by the sight. There were statues of wizards and witches all around the room, and in the center was a large, magical portal.
“What is this place?” Brad asked.
“This is the portal to the wizarding world,” the man said. “I am Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.”
Brad was surprised by the Professor’s appearance, but he didn’t hesitate to take the opportunity to visit the wizarding world. He stepped through the portal and found himself in a new, exciting world.
