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

Bruce always felt a bit different. He never knew why, but he always felt like he was missing something. As he got older, he began to realize that this something was his ability to connect with the spiritual world. One day, while Bruce was out walking, he felt a strange energy nearby. He followed it to a portal, and when he stepped through, he found himself in a strange place. He saw a dragon flying through the air, and next to it was a beautiful woman. The woman smiled at Bruce and said, “Welcome, my friend. I am Yvaine, and this is my world.”

Bruce was excited to explore this world further, and so he followed Yvaine and the dragon. They journeyed through the portal and discovered many different places. They visited a castle filled with magical creatures, a beautiful waterfall, and a desert full of golden sand. Everywhere they went, they saw other people who had also discovered the portal.

Bruce was amazed by how wonderful this world was and he quickly fell in love with it. He was happy to be part of this community of people who loved and accepted each other for who they were. Every day, Bruce would walk through the portal and explore another part of Yvaine’s world. Eventually, he even started to make friends there, people he would visit whenever he had a chance.

Bruce always felt grateful for his magical discovery and he embraced it fully. He was happy to be living a life full of magic and adventure.
