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

Jared found the portal while out exploring the woods one afternoon. He had been hiking for hours, and was getting tired. He had been following a trail that seemed to lead to nowhere, when he came across the opening. He stepped through, and found himself in a new, magical world. He was surrounded by beautiful trees and flowering bushes. The sun was shining, and the air was cool and refreshing. Jared felt like he had found his new home. He stayed there for days, immersing himself in the new world. He never would have known about the portal if he hadn’t stumbled upon it while out exploring.
