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

Jared had always been a curious child. He was always asking questions and trying to find out more about the world around him. When he was a teenager, he discovered a magical portal. It was a Saturday afternoon and he was out exploring a park with some friends. When he reached the portal, he just had to go through it. He had no idea what he was getting himself into.

The first thing he noticed was the bright light. He soon found out that he was in another world. It was a beautiful place with a large blue sky. He walked for miles, exploring the different places in the world. He eventually came across a large castle. He went inside and found himself in a large hall. There he saw a large throne made out of pure gold. Sitting on the throne was a beautiful woman with long brown hair. She looked kind and gentle.

Suddenly, the door to the throne room opened and a group of soldiers walked in. The woman on the throne stood up and glared at them. She said something in a strange language and the soldiers began to attack. Jared ran for the door, but it was too late. He was outnumbered and outnumbered badly. He tried to fight back, but it was no use. He was unarmed and defenceless. He was about to be killed, when he heard a voice from behind him.

It was the woman from the throne room. She had come to help him. Together, they fought off the soldiers and escaped the castle. They didn’t stop running until they were miles away from the portal. When they finally stopped, they were out of breath. Jared looked at the woman and thanked her for saving him. She smiled at him and said nothing. She just continued to walk ahead of him. Jared was confused, but he didn’t say anything. He just followed her.
