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

It was the middle of the night and all Erik could think about was getting some sleep. He was restless and couldn’t seem to get comfortable in his bed. As he drifted off, he had a strange dream. In the dream, he found a magical portal. As he stepped through it, he found himself in a different world.

The first thing he noticed was the beautiful landscape. There were mountains, lakes, and forests all around him. The second thing he noticed was the people. They were all different colors and sizes, but they all looked friendly.

Erik stayed in the world for a while, exploring everything. He even met a giant who was very friendly. Eventually, though, he wanted to return home.

He found the portal easily and walked through it. As he left the world, he felt a little sad that he would have to leave it behind. But he was glad that he had discovered it and would always remember his experience.
