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

Doug Anderson sat in his chair, the laptop resting on his knees. It had been his obsession for years, trying to unlock the mysteries of the internet. His fingers tips danced over the keyboard, and he was deep in concentration, when he made the discovery that would change his life.

He was surfing the web, when he came across a strange website. It looked like any other website, except there was a small blue box in the top left corner. He clicked on it, and a portal appeared.

He stepped through, and found himself in a fantastical world. He was surrounded by castles, green fields, and crystal clear waters. He could feel the cool breeze on his skin, and the sun was shining bright.

He didn’t know how long he had been there, when he heard a voice calling his name. He turned around, and saw a beautiful woman standing there.

“Welcome to my world,” she said. “I am the Lady of the Castle. Would you like to explore more?”

Doug was enchanted by her beauty, and decided to stay. He spent hours exploring the castle, and learning about the magical creatures that lived there. He even met the King and Queen of the castle, and they welcomed him with open arms.

The Lady of the Castle became his best friend, and they would spend hours talking about life and love. The portal remained open all the time, and Doug could visit it whenever he wanted.

Life was perfect, until one day the Lady of the Castle disappeared. Doug was devastated, but he knew that she would always be with him in his heart. He would never forget the magical time they had spent together.
