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

John had always been a curious person, so when he saw a large, black portal in the woods one day, he couldn’t resist investigating. When he stepped through, he found himself in a fantastical world filled with colorful creatures. John was thrilled by the sight, and decided to stay for a while. He soon found that the portal led to different parts of the world, and he began exploring them all.

John soon became obsessed with this new world, and he spent all his free time exploring it. He even started making new friends along the way, including a magical fox named Furry. John was happy just drifting through the world, but he soon realized that there was something he wanted even more. He wanted to find the source of the portal, and learn how to use it himself.

John was determined to find this information, no matter what. He tried to ask the creatures in the world about it, but they all seemed to be keeping quiet. One day, he finally stumbled upon a group of beings who could tell him more. They told him that the portal was actually a doorway to another world, and that he could use it to travel to different parts of it. John was overjoyed to hear this, and he quickly set off to explore more of his new home.
