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

John had always been interested in the supernatural. As a youngster, he would spend hours reading about creatures like vampires and werewolves. When he was older, he started researching portals and the like. He had heard about one in particular that was rumored to be located in a remote corner of the country.

John found the portal after weeks of searching. He had read every article and study on the subject that he could find, and was confident that this was the portal that he was looking for. When he arrived at the spot, he was stunned by what he saw. There before him was a portal that looked like nothing he had ever seen before.

John stepped through and found himself in a strange, colorful world. He was immediately attacked by a horde of monsters, but he fought back with all of his strength. In the end, he was victorious and returned to reality, slightly injured but happy to have finally discovered the portal.
