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

Ray had never been the kind of person to believe in ghosts or witches, but when he found a strange, black, magic portal hidden in the attic of his old house, he couldn’t help but explore it. The portal led him to a strange and wonderful world full of elves, dragons, and witches. In this world, he could be whatever he wanted to be, and he quickly became a celebrated hero. However, the portal gradually began to disappear, and Ray was forced to return to the real world. He never forgot what he had found, and he often dreamed of returning to the magical world.
