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

Steve was a peculiar man. He spent all his time looking for hidden portals, no matter how trivial the discovery. On this particular day, he was out walking his dog when he found a strange hole in the ground. He couldn’t resist poking his head in, and soon found himself in a different world.

The first thing he noticed was the beautiful scenery. The second was the fact that he was the only person there. He began exploring the unfamiliar land, and soon came across a portal that led back to his own world. He was so excited to have discovered this new place that he didn’t even notice the strange looks he was getting from his neighbours.
