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

As a boy, Jack had always been fascinated by the stories of magic portals. His parents had always warned him about them, but he couldn’t help but be drawn to them. Little did he know, he would one day find himself walking through one.

On a scorching summer day, Jack found himself walking down a rural road. He wasn’t paying much attention to his surroundings, his eyes were focused on the mysterious portal opening up in front of him. He stepped through, and was immediately transported to an unrecognizable world.

The colors were bright and vibrant, and the air was warm and humid. Jack could see strange creatures flying around him, and he quickly realized that he was in some sort of magical realm. He felt an intense sense of excitement and adventure, and knew that this was the place for him.

Unfortunately, Jack didn’t have long to enjoy his new surroundings. He quickly realized that he was lost, and had no idea how to get back home. As he began to panic, he saw a familiar figure walking down the road towards him. It was his father!

Although he was relieved to see him, Jack was also embarrassed. He had been so lost in his adventure that he had completely forgotten about his family. He was lucky that his father had found him in time, or he might have been lost forever in the magical world.
