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

Tommy was out walking his dog one sunny afternoon when he discovered a strange portal in the ground. He cautiously approached it, not knowing what might be waiting for him on the other side. As he stepped through, he found himself in a strange, haunted forest. He didn’t know how to get back to reality, so he just wandered around for hours, exploring the scary woods. Eventually, he stumbled upon a hidden mansion. The doors were locked, but he heard a strange sound coming from inside. He peered through a small window and saw a beautiful woman chained to the wall. She was crying out for help, but he knew he couldn’t go inside. As he backed away from the window, the doors creaked open and the woman ran into his arms, thanking him for saving her. Tommy immediately realized that this was all just a dream, but he was still scared of the dark forests and haunted mansions waiting for him outside of the portal.
