Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal
After a long day of work, Jeff was ready for a break. He closed his laptop and put it in his bag, then headed to the kitchen to get a drink. As he was getting a glass from the cabinet, he noticed something strange. There was a small, circular opening in the cabinet right above the sink.
Jeff wasn’t sure what to make of it, so he just ignored it. However, the more he ignored it, the more intrigued he became. Finally, curiosity got the best of him, so he decided to investigate.
Once he got close to the opening, he noticed that it was really just a small hole. He put his hand through it and felt a sense of cool air on his skin. He looked up and saw a beautiful, purple sky above him.
Jeff was amazed by what he had found. He had never been to such a beautiful place before, and he knew he had to get back home as soon as possible. He started to take steps back towards the hole, but as he did, he felt a sudden force pulling him in.
Jeff struggled to free himself, but in the end, he was pulled inside the portal. He knew he was going to die, but he had to find out what was beyond the door. As he disappeared from sight, he could hear jeers and laughter from the people in his life who would never know that he had ever even existed.
