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

Eric was a simple man who lived a simple life. He worked as a deliveryman for a small café, and he loved spending time with his wife and two children. One day, while he was making his deliveries, he stumbled upon a magical portal.

Despite being terrified, Eric couldn’t help but explore the portal. As he walked through, he found himself in a different world. The first thing he noticed was the color: everything in this world was a beautiful blue.

As he continued exploring, he came across a beautiful meadow. The sun was shining, the flowers were blooming, and the birds were singing. It was such a peaceful place, and Eric couldn’t help but spend the entire day there.

After spending some time in the meadow, Eric decided to explore the rest of the world. He found a village, a forest, and even a snow-covered mountain. Everywhere he went, he found himself surrounded by lush greenery and sparkling water.

Eventually, Eric ran out of things to see and explore. He was so amazed by the world he had found himself in that he just sat down and marveled at it. As he sat there, he realized that this was definitely not his world. He had never seen anything like it before, and he had no idea how he had gotten to this place.

But despite being foreign to him, this world felt like home. And so, Eric decided to stay. He loved the way the world sparkled and the way the air smelled. He was so happy to have found this magical portal, and he would never forget the wonderful journey he had taken.
