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

John had always been interested in the supernatural, and had been dreaming of finding a magical portal for years. Finally, he found it. The portal was in his attic, and when John walked through it, he found himself in a otherworldly place. He was surrounded by golden light and towering trees, and he could hear the sound of waterfalls and birds singing. John was shocked to discover that he was standing in the middle of a beautiful garden. He walked through the portal again, and when he returned to the real world, he knew that he had to find out more about this place. He went online and found a website that explained that the portal was located in an ancient forest called the Forest of Souls. John was so excited to go to the Forest of Souls, and he couldn’t wait to explore the magical place.
