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

Gary always knew he was different. His parents always told him that he had a special gift, and so when he was a young boy, he started exploring his abilities.

One day, Gary found a portal. He walked through it, and found himself in a strange place. There were floating islands, beaches filled with children playing, and valleys full of flowers.

Gary was happy to find a place like this, free from the stresses of life. He spent hours exploring the different parts of the portal, and when he returned home, he told his parents about it.

They were amazed that he had found a portal, and told him that he should use it more often. Gary was happy to be able to connect with a place that felt so different from the world he lived in.
