Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
John had always been interested in the paranormal, and when he was a young boy, he discovered a magical portal that led to a world of witches and wizards. For years, he would visit this world every day, learning about spells and magic. Eventually, he grew older and married. His wife was not as interested in the paranormal as John was, and he began to neglect his childhood obsession.
One day, John was sweeping the floor and he happened to knock over a vase that was sitting on top of a curio cabinet. He didn’t notice anything strange about the vase until he looked closer and saw a hole in the bottom. Curiosity got the better of him, so he decided to lift the cabinet to see what was behind it. To his astonishment, he found a hidden door that led to the magical world he used to visit as a child.
Nowadays, John visits the portal every day to explore the new world he has discovered. It is a magical place full of wonder, and he knows he will never forget it.
