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

It was a dark and stormy night, and though he had done his best to avoid it, the man had run into the street. He had been trying to cross the street when he had seen the flash of light and then the strange portal had appeared. He had tried to walk through it, but it had closed behind him. Now he was stuck in the middle of the street. He had been there for hours, and he was getting tired and hungry. He decided he would have to find a way to get across the street before he got too tired to try again. As he started to walk back the way he had come, he saw another light in the distance. He decided to go see what it was. When he got closer, he saw that it was another portal. Heapproached it cautiously, and when he stepped through, he was in another world.
