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

Stanislaus had always been a curious man. He had a natural inquisitiveness that had led him down various paths in life, some of which he was very happy with and others he wasn’t. One path that he had recently discovered was magic. He had always been a bit of an skeptic, but he had always been open to new experiences, so when he stumbled upon a portal that led to a world of magical creatures, he was intrigued.

Stanislaus walked through the portal and suddenly found himself in a beautiful forest. He could hear the sound of water running through the trees and he could smell the freshness of the air. He was surrounded by creatures of all shapes and sizes, and he was amazed by the beauty of it all.

As he walked through the forest, he began to feel a sense of peace and happiness. He had never felt so alive before and he knew that he would never want to leave this magical place. He felt like he had found a new home, and he was never going to let go of it.
