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

Gary had always been a bit of a skeptic. He had seen enough Hollywood movies to know that there was no such thing as magic. But one day, while out hiking, he discovered a portal that led to an otherworldly world. Upon entering, he was immediately surrounded by a beautiful array of colors and happy creatures. He was filled with a sense of awe and amazement at what he saw. Gary decided to stay and explore this wondrous place further. And, as he did, he soon realized that this was not just any world. This was the world of magic. And, as he continued to explore, he discovered that he was not the only one who had discovered this portal. There were others, just like him, who had also found their way into this magical realm.
