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

The man had been exploring the forest for weeks, looking for signs that would lead him to the answer to a question he had been pondering for months. Finally, he found what he was looking for- an old tree stump with a hole in it. He cautiously approached the hole, ready to jump if anything came out, and peered inside. What he saw made his heart race. A portal was open, and it looked like it led to the other side of the world. He could see a beautiful courtyard, full of flowers and trees. He suddenly knew what he had to do. He jumped into the portal and found himself in a new world.
