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

Unlike any other man, Andrew had discovered a magical portal. It had been right before he had lost his job and his home. Andrew had been searching for any way to get his life back on track when he had stumbled across the portal. He hadn’t known what it was at first, but it had looked like a door to another world.

Andrew had walked through the portal and found himself in a beautiful forest. He had walked for hours before he had come across a small cottage. Inside, he had found a old woman who had welcomed him into her home. She had told him that he was special and that he had been chosen to find the magical object.

Andrew had journeyed through the forest for weeks before he had found the object. It had been a small green stone that had the power to destroy magic. When he had finally found it, he had been able to return home and get his life back on track.
