Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
Response: leading to another world

Tommy was going through the motions of his everyday life, when he discovered a portal leading to another world. He stepped through and was immediately taken to an idyllic land filled with lush forests, crystal-clear rivers, and brilliantly blue skies. Tommy was ecstatic with his discovery and decided to stay there for a while.

Everyday, Tommy would wander around the land, amazed at the beauty he found. He would spend hours sitting by the crystal-clear river, just watching the waves flow by. One day, he happened to wander into a clearing and saw a breathtaking waterfall. As he got closer, he saw that there was a small bridge leading to the top of the waterfall.

Feeling a sense of adventure, Tommy decided to take the bridge. As he reached the top, he saw a beautiful castle standing at the edge of the falls. He walked through the castle gate and found himself in an enchanted garden. As he explored the garden, he found a small pond in the center of the garden, and reflected upon how lucky he was to have found this beautiful place.

Suddenly, Tommy heard a voice calling his name. He turned to see a beautiful woman standing in the doorway of the castle. She said that she had been watching him from the top of the waterfall, and invited him to come and visit her again. Tommy was so taken by her appearance that he didn’t even hesitate, and agreed to visit her again soon.
