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

John had always been a curious man, and he was never afraid to explore new territory. So when he stumbled upon a portal one day, he knew he had to investigate.

As he stepped through the doorway, he was transported to an entirely new world. He saw a magnificent city, with soaring towers and beautiful gardens. There was also a vast ocean, with cliffs and waves crashing against the shore.

John was excited to explore this new world, but he knew he couldn’t stay here forever. He had to get back to reality.

But as he stepped back through the portal, he realized that it would be tough to leave. This place was so beautiful and inspiring. He didn’t want to leave, but he knew he had to.

As he walked back through the portal, he couldn’t help but smile. He had discovered a magical place, and he would never forget it.
