Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
It was a typical day at work, until Pete noticed something strange. He could see the outline of a portal in the otherwise blank space in front of him. It looked like something out of a sci-fi movie. Hesitating for only a moment, Pete reached out and touched the portal. Instantly, he was transported to an unfamiliar world.
The first thing he noticed was the vibrant colors. Everything around him was a different shade of blue, green, and purple. There was also a strange light in the sky that looked like fire.
As he walked, Pete saw other strange creatures. There were creatures that looked like frogs with wings, creatures resembling dragons, and even a giant, pink rabbit.
Pete was fascinated by the world he had found himself in. He wanted to explore it further, but he wasn’t sure how he would get back. Suddenly, he heard a loud noise. It sounded like a battle was happening.
Quickly, Pete walked in the direction of the sound. As he got closer, he could see a group of creatures fighting each other. Some of them were humanoid, while others were bizarrely shaped.
Pete decided to help the creatures in the fight. He attacked the humanoid creatures with his fists, and he used his agility to dodge the attacks of the bizarre-looking creatures.
Eventually, the humanoid creatures were defeated, and Pete was the only one left standing. He was about to surrender when he saw a figure wearing a suit of armor come towards him.
The figure was wielding a sword and a shield, and he looked like he was ready to fight to the death. But before he could do anything, he was stabbed in the stomach by a creature with a long, snake-like body.
The creature then fled the scene, and Pete lay dying on the ground. But before he passed out, he saw the figure in the suit of armor walking away. It looked like he had known what was going to happen.
Pete never found out who that figure was or what happened to him after he died. But he was glad he had been able to see the world beyond his own before he died.
