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

After a long day of work, John was looking forward to taking a break and finally catching up on some of his reading. He wandered into the pub on a whim, and immediately felt a sense of magic emanating from the doorway. He stepped through and found himself in a strange, new world.

There were people walking on lily pads, talking to colorful birds. The trees were full of fruit that John had never seen before, and the air smelled like lemon. John could feel the magic all around him, and he knew that he had found his new home.
