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

Everyone knows there’s something strange about the old abandoned warehouse on the edge of town. No one knows what it is, but it’s always seemed like something bad might happen if you tried to go near it.

That is, until one day when a man named Ben discovered a portal leading straight to the other side. Thrilled at the prospect of finding new and exciting adventures, Ben stepped through the portal and never looked back.

Little did he know, the portal would lead him right into the middle of a deadly magical plot. Now Ben must fight for his life against powerful enemies, while trying to save the world from an ancient and deadly curse.
