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

Every day, as he left work, Roger would scan the skies, looking for any sign of the portal. Even though he’d been searching for years, he had never been successful in locating it. But one day, as he was standing on his rooftop, he saw a small, faint light in the sky. Tentatively, he made his way to the edge of the roof and peered into the light. What he saw made his heart stop: a portal was opening, and through it could be seen a magnificent city, full of towering skyscrapers and shining monuments. Roger knew that this was the location of the portal, and he immediately made his way through it.

When he arrived in the city, he was amazed at the sights and sounds of the bustling streets. He walked for hours, exploring every corner of the magical city. Eventually, he found the portal that would take him back home. As he stepped through, he knew that this was the moment he had been Waiting for.
