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

Tony always thought the attic was just a room with old junk in it. But one day, he happened to open the door and found a portal. He stepped through and found himself in a different world.

The first thing Tony noticed was the color. Everything in this world was a beautiful, electric blue. The second thing Tony noticed was the magic. The air was charged with energy, and the people here seemed to be able to do magic just by thinking about it.

Tony wanted to explore this world, but he wasn’t sure how to get back. All he could do was stand there and stare. Then, he heard someone calling his name. It was a girl he had gone to school with back in the real world.

When Tony met her, he didn’t believe she was real. But now, he was sure. She was the only person in this world who looked like she belonged. Tony was homesick for his old life, but he knew he had to stay here with the girl.

One day, he was going to find a way back home. Until then, he would just enjoy the magical world he had found.
