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

The man had been walking for hours, exploring every nook and cranny of the abandoned city. He was getting tired and hungry, but he dared not stop yet. There had to be something here, some clue that would lead him to the golden boy.

Suddenly, he heard a noise. It sounded like someone was crying. He followed the sound until he found a broken window, and through it he saw a woman. She was surrounded by broken pieces of furniture and debris, and she appeared to be in pain.

The man stepped forward, and suddenly the room started to spin. He felt a strange pressure on his chest, and then everything went black.
