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

It was a typical day in the small town of Salem. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. But, there was one man who wasn’t content. He was looking for something new to do. He had been living in Salem for years and hadn’t found anything exciting or new to do. That is, until he discovered a portal.

The man went to the portal and stepped through. He was in a strange place, full of floating islands and bright colors. He saw a woman walking down a street and wanted to talk to her, but he was scared. He turned around and walked back through the portal.

That was the first time he had ever gone through the portal. He was excited and curious to see what else the place had to offer. The next time he went through, he found himself in a different place. This time, he was in a jungle. He saw animals and plants he hadn’t seen before. He was so fascinated by the scene that he didn’t even notice the woman walking down the street.

The man went through the portal again and again. He explored new places every time. He started to feel like this was his home. He was so happy living in the portal world that he never wanted to return to the boring world he had been living in before.
