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

The days had been long and difficult, but finally the man had made it to the other side. He had been walking for days, and was finally nearing his destination. He had been told that if he made it to the other side, he would finally find the magic he was searching for. He had been told that it was on the other side of the portal.

He had been trekking through the wild for days, and his feet and hands were blistered and sore. But he wasn’t about to let anything stop him from reaching his goal. He was close now, he could feel it.

He made it to the edge of the forest, and then saw the portal. It was as he had been told it would be- a magical door that led to a new, unknown world. He could feel a sense of optimism wash over him, and he knew that this was the answer to his prayers.

He approached the portal cautiously, not knowing what kind of dangers he might face on the other side. But as he touched it, he felt a surge of energy flow through him, and he knew that he was ready for whatever was waiting for him.

He stepped through the portal, and was immediately transported to the other side. He was surrounded by unfamiliar landscape, and he was unsure what to do next. But he knew that he had to find the magic he was looking for. He had to find the answer to the age-old question: where does the magic come from?
