Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
The man was about to give up on his life. He had been unemployed for over a year and had run out of ideas. He was about to give up when he found a portal. He stepped through and was transported to a beautiful place. He was surrounded by flowers and creatures of all kinds. He felt a sense of peace and happiness wash over him. He was about to walk away when he heard a voice call out to him. It was a voice he had heard before. It was the voice of his ancestors. The man followed the voice and found a chamber with a portal opening to a different world. He stepped through and found himself in a dark place. He was about to give up when he heard the voice of his ancestors again. This time it was urging him to keep going. He continued through the darkness and found a portal that led him to a place of light. He was greeted by his ancestors and they told him that he had been chosen to complete a task. The man was confused but decided to follow the voice of his ancestors. He found himself in a strange place with a huge tower. He climbed the tower and found himself at the top. He was about to enter the tower when he heard the voice of his ancestors once again. This time the voice warned him that he was about to enter a place of darkness. The man hesitated but then decided to enter the tower. He found himself in a place of darkness where he was faced with a choice. He could either stay in the darkness or he could enter the light. The man chose to enter the light and found himself in a beautiful place. The light guided him to a throne where he met his ancestors. They told him that he had been chosen to be the next king. The man was overjoyed and thanked his ancestors. He then set out to complete the task that had been given to him.
