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

Terry wasn’t sure what he was getting himself into when he decided to take a walk in the woods near his home. He had always been a wanderlust person, and he couldn’t resist the mysterious feel of the woods at nighttime. As he walked, he began to hear a rustling in the bushes ahead of him. He took a step forward, and before he knew it, he had stepped through a magical portal.

Terry found himself in a strange land populated by creatures he had never seen before. He was terrified at first, but then he saw a creature that looked familiar. It was the creature he saw on his walk to the woods every day. The creature looked at him with its intelligent eyes and smiled. Terry realized that this was his home, and he was not alone.
