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

Paul had always been fascinated by the idea of magic. He had read about it as a child, but never really believed it existed. But when he was out walking one day, he discovered a strange, magical portal. As he walked through it, he found himself in a strange world. He was surrounded by odd creatures, but he didn’t understand what any of them meant. But he soon discovered that he could control these creatures by speaking to them. He became a master of this new world and reveled in its strange ways. But one day, he met a creature that he couldn’t control. It was angry and dangerous, and it wanted revenge on Paul for trespassing. Paul had no choice but to fight back, and he soon found himself outnumbered and outmatched. But he didn’t give up, and he eventually won the battle. As he lay dying, he realized that this wasn’t just another world – it was his own, and he could go back any time he wanted. And that’s when he realized that magic was real, and he never wanted to leave again.
