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

Ed wasn’t sure what he was looking for, but he knew he had to find it. He had been searching for days, and he was starting to lose hope. Then he found it. A small hole in the ground, just the right size to fit a person. He went down, and when he was inside, he found himself in another world. It was a beautiful place, and he felt like he had finally found what he was looking for. He stayed there for a while, enjoying the sights and the sounds. But eventually, he realized that he had to go back home. He wasn’t sure how to get back, but he knew he had to try. He went back up the hole, and when he reached the surface, he was relieved to see that it was still daylight. He was about to head home, when he realized that he had left his phone down in the other world. He tried to think of a way to get back down, but he was starting to get worried. He didn’t know how long it would take him to walk back down there, and he didn’t want to miss his phone call. He decided to take a risk and go back down. When he got to the bottom, he found himself in the middle of a fight. He didn’t know who was fighting who, or what was happening, but he knew he had to get out of there. He ran as fast as he could, and when he got back to his house, he was so relieved. He had missed his call, but he was still alive.
