Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
Andrew had always been fascinated by the idea of magical portals. He had read about them in books and saw them in movies, and they always captivated him. But he had never been able to find one himself.
One day, while looking for a new place to hang out, he stumbled upon a weird hole in the ground. He peered inside and saw a beautiful, flickering light. As he stepped inside, he felt a sense of déjà vu. He had seen this exact spot before, but he couldn’t remember where.
He continued walking and entered another tunnel. This one was a little darker, and he could hear strange sounds coming from it. He took a few more steps and suddenly he found himself in front of a beautiful portal.
He could see himself in the mirror on the other side, and he could see the person behind him as well. But he couldn’t see the person’s face.
The portal was beginning to close, and he knew he had to act fast. He ran over to the mirror and pushed it open just in time. He entered the portal and found himself in a strange place.
He was in a room with a beautiful blue sky, and he could see a few white clouds in the sky. There was a stream nearby, and he could hear the sound of water flowing.
He walked over to the stream and sat down. Suddenly, the portal closed, and he was stuck in this new place. He didn’t know how to get back home, and he had no idea what to do. But he was happy to have discovered this magical portal.
