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

John had always been a curious person, so when he found a strange portal in his backyard, he couldn’t help but explore it. He stepped through and found himself in a strange, colorful world. He was surrounded by strange creatures and plants, and he couldn’t quite believe his eyes.

He walked around for hours, marveling at the sights and sounds of the new world. Eventually, he found a cave that led to another portal. This time, he stepped through and found himself in a different, mysterious world. He saw castles and towers, and a wide river that flowed through the valleys.

He explored this new world for hours, until he found a hidden cave. Inside, he found a sleeping dragon. When the dragon woke up and saw John, it began to attack. John was able to fight the dragon off, but he was injured in the process.

Nevertheless, John was exhilarated by his new discoveries. He had discovered two magical portals, and he was excited to explore them further.
