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

Philippe had always been fascinated by magic. He’d read about it in books, seen movies about wizards and witches, and even heard a few rumors about portals to other worlds.

One day, while looking for a hidden garden in his neighborhood, Philippe found a strange brick wall with a small opening. After some exploration, he found a hidden door that led to a small, dark room.

He walked into the room and saw a portal opening in the far wall. He stepped through and found himself in a different world.

The sky was a dark blue, and the sun was a bright yellow. There were beautiful trees and flowers everywhere, and the people were polite and friendly.

Philippe couldn’t believe his luck. He had found the perfect place to study magic!
