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

Graham had always been a bit of a skeptic. He’d grown up in a household where the only things that could be explained were things that could be seen or measured with tangible evidence. But then, one day, he stumbled upon a portal. It was just a small, dark spot in the corner of his attic, but the more he looked at it, the more intrigued he became. He had always been a bit of a wanderer, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to explore the world beyond his small town.

He had always been a bit of a tinkerer, so he got to work figuring out how to open the portal. After a few failed efforts, he finally got it open. He stepped through, not knowing what he would find on the other side.

He soon discovered that he was in a world of magical beings. There were unicorns, dragons, and witches and wizards everywhere. It was an amazing experience, and he spent the rest of his days exploring this new world.
