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

It was early evening when John stumbled upon the portal. He had been out hiking in the woods, and was just finishing up his hike when he saw a strange light in the distance. He started to make his way towards it, but as he got closer, he realized that it was a portal.

John had never seen anything like it before, and was curious as to what it could be. As he got closer, he could see that the portal was leading into a new world. He stepped through it, and was instantly transported to the new world.

As he looked around, he saw that he was in a vast, green landscape. He could see the ocean in the distance, and the sun was setting behind the mountains. He was surrounded by strange creatures, but he didn’t fear them. He had come to this magical land for a reason, and he was determined to find out what it was.

John walked around for hours, exploring the new world that had been revealed to him. He was amazed by the beauty of it all, and the peace that it brought him. He had never felt so at peace in his life, and he knew that he would never want to leave this magical place.
