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

Although he had been chasing after mythical creatures his whole life, Jake had never seen anything as amazing as the portal he found one early morning while trekking through the woods. As soon as he stepped through, he found himself in a world unlike anything he had ever seen before.

The sun was shining and the air was warm, but there was also a cool breeze blowing. The trees and plants were of all different colors and shapes, and in the distance he could see a beautiful lake.

As he wandered around, he began to notice that all of the objects in the world were made of magic. The flowers, the trees, the water—everything was special.

Jake was so enchanted by this world that he didn’t want to leave, but he soon realized that he needed to return home. He didn’t know how to get back to the portal, but he was sure that he could find a way.

Just as he was about to leave, he heard a voice calling out to him. It was a voice he had heard before, but he couldn’t remember where. When he went to answer it, he found himself face to face with the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

She told him that she had been waiting for him all his life, and that she would always be there for him. As they kissed, Jake knew that this was the real world and that he would never need to leave again.
