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

Jimmy had always been a bit of a skeptic, but when he found a small crack in the concrete of a sidewalk, he knew there had to be something behind it. He pried the concrete loose with a screwdriver and discovered a small hole, barely big enough for his hand. After a few minutes of searching, he found a small metal ring sticking out of the wall. The ring was rusty and covered in dust, but when he touched it, he felt a warm, tingling sensation run up his arm.

Jimmy didn’t know what to make of it, but he knew he had to find out more. He slipped the ring off the wall and placed it in his pocket. He replaced the concrete and walked back home, glowing with excitement.

The next day, Jimmy went back to the spot and found that the ring had disappeared. He didn’t know what to make of it, but he knew he had to find out more. He searched high and low for the ring, but it was nowhere to be found. He began to worry that it might have been lost forever, but then one day, he found it tucked away in the crevice of a brick wall.

Jimmy was finally able to prove that there was indeed something magical behind the portal. The ring had allowed him to travel to different magical realms, and he had learned a lot about the different creatures that lived there. He now travels back and forth between the different realms, exploring new things and meeting new friends.
