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

Darien was skeptical when his friend told him about the portal. He had grown up hearing about mythical creatures like witches and wizards, and he wasn’t sure whether this portal was something real or not. But his friend was adamant about it, so Darien decided to go see for himself.

As he approached the portal, Darien felt a strange sensation overtake him. It was as if his body was being pulled through the portal, and before he knew it, he was standing in a foreign place. The landscape was unfamiliar, and there was a strange energy in the air.

When he looked closer at the portal, he realized that it was a gateway into another world. Darien wasn’t sure how he was going to get back home, but he was determined to find out.
