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

Mike always thought there was something strange about his attic. It was always cold and damp, and the light never worked right. But one day, he randomly opened the door and discovered a portal.

As soon as he stepped through, he was weightless and flying through the air. He could see the world below him from an aerial perspective, and he was astounded by how beautiful it was. He floated through the portal for hours, exploring new places and meeting new people.

Eventually, he returned home and told his friends about the portal. They were disbelief, but he insisted that it was real. Together, they explored the portal more and started to see the world in a new light. They even started writing articles about the magical places they had discovered.

Thanks to the portal, Mike had discovered a new way to view the world and he was never the same again.
