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

Doug had always been interested in magic. As a child, he would often watch movies or TV shows about wizards and witches casting spells. One night, while watching a show about a portal to another world, Doug discovered the true power of magic.

He decided to create his own portal. After a few tries, he finally succeeded. Doug stepped through the portal and found himself in a new world. He was amazed by the beauty of the land and the magic floating in the air.

After spending a day exploring the new world, Doug felt a sense of homecoming. He walked back through the portal and returned to his old life. But he knew that he would never forget the magic he had discovered.
