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

Arthur had always been interested in the world beyond the ordinary. So when he discovered a strange portal one day, he was excited to explore its depths.

As he stepped through, he was immediately met with a breathtaking view. He saw a vast ocean before him, and on the horizon he could see a beautiful land. He could also see people living there, and they seemed to be happy.

Arthur couldn’t believe his luck. He had found a way to visit this beautiful place without having to leave his home.

He stepped through the portal again and again, exploring the new places he found each time. The more he explored, the more he realized that this wasn’t just a one-time thing. There were always new portals opening up, and he could visit them as often as he wanted.

Arthur soon became very attached to his new home, and he spent all his time there, never wanting to leave. He even started to forget about the world he had once known.

One day, Arthur woke up and found that the portal had closed. He was sad to lose his new home, but he knew that he would find another one soon.
