Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
John was a average man who had an average life. He was married to his beautiful wife, Maria, and they had two kids. Living in a small town in America, John was content with his life. That is, until he stumbled upon a mysterious portal that led to a different world.
Once he entered the portal, John found himself in a strange and magical land. He was quickly drawn in by the beautiful sights and sounds of the land. He soon discovered that this world was inhabited by creatures unlike any he had ever seen before. John fell in love with this new land and decided to stay.
John later met a woman named Eliza who was also living in this land. They fell in love and decided to stay together. They started a family and life was perfect. However, John and Eliza decided to return to John’s world one day. They knew that their children would never be able to explore the wonders of this other world and they wanted them to have the best life possible.
John and Eliza’s children are now adults and they all live happy and fulfilling lives. They still remember their trip to the magical world and cherish the memories of that special time in their lives.
